    DD has now come home with a note from school to let me know what "stationary" she has run out of. Apparently she needs textas and a pencil sharpener. If they're stationary they shouldn't need to be replaced!!!

    ETA: Also reminds me of a friend who had some bad news and was "guttered".


    Maybe he thinks it means that the news was so bad that he was knocked off his feet and into the gutter by it? Too funny!

    The Kikki K Facebook page recently posted a comment referring to the store's "stationary". I was among a few who were quick to pounce, but was surprised by how many likers thought we were being pedantic. Come on... a stationery shop misspelling "stationery"? How can you not comment?!

    It's probably already been said but 'then' and 'than' grrrr drives me nuts to see 'my brother is older then me'.


    Honestly - grammar, the difference between knowing your **** and knowing you're ****!
