    Yes, but I think there's a line. Anyway I will bow out now

    I hate when I don't proof read something I've posted on Facebook via iPhone like "better go wash me car" when me was meant to be my but autocorrect got it wrong, making me look like a slack jawed yokel! And I have the choice of deleting and re-writing, or just living with it :-S

    What a great forum. I loved the wedding invite we received yesterday. The date of the wedding is the 19rd.

    ... Really!!

    A christening invite we also received. No capitals for the name of the church or the baby's name! Also had the head circumference, who does that?

    Were there any permanent markers in those little boxes, KellyMac? I would have fixed the sign for them. Or possibly just wept as I walked out of the shop.

    Haha. I should've checked. I think I was in a hurry but couldn't resist snapping it. I'm a school teacher so am a bit of a spelling/grammar Nazi.
    Overnight I thought of 2 more.
    An ex used to message me each day to say "good mourning". I never understood it because he was a very smart guy.
    Also (and this one could possibly take the cake) a friend has her employment listed on FB as "casual at First Grammer Child Care" !!!!!
