    Oh I love this!

    The only thing is I bet my kids will still get confused because passed is in the past too! And quarter past isn't in the past. Stoopid English language. I will try all of these ideas and they can pick the one that their brain likes best...

    Yesterday a business card was dropped in my letterbox advertising pet sitting with a short spiel about how people appreciate 'there' pets 'been' looked after in 'there' own home. Oh my lord.

    The other day I went to write "tidyness" but it did not look right. But "tidiness" looks wrong too. The longer I stared at it, the more confused I became. Any thoughts?

    If you look at any word too many times it looks wrong regardless of the spelling!

    I say i because other similar words ending in 'y' change to i. Silliness, cleanliness, happiness etc. If I was at work I'm sure I could lay my hands on something with the 'rule' written down. FWIW my phone autofills neither!

    In one of those 'this is a true story' nonsense stories on Facebook about the answering machine at a school ...

    Clearly the person transcribing this 'true' recording didn't attend English class much themselves.

    A business page on Facebook continuously uses 'hey guise...' Instead of 'hey guys...'

    Why make it more complicated than it has to be??

    Unless it is a costume shop (it would become old saying that after the first 5 times) that is terrible.
