Does this mean there is an ENTIRE corporation that didn't have one person on their team that could spot this error?

    I mean, their nappies are everywhere in my Woolies. It's in my face all the time and makes my eye very twitchy indeed! I'm one step away from writing a letter!
    I know! I was going to give these a try, but i thought if they can't even get their punctuation right, what are the chances it's a good product? I couldn't buy them in the end.

    Like @turquoisecoast, i thought about ways that punctuation could be correct, but decided it just has to be an error.

    FB post containing the words "filled with proudness" which came up on my feed because my friend was tagged.
    Just below that was another post with misuse of both his and "hes" (without even using an apostrophe). I commented about "he's.... and love his...., and got another reply with "hes" instead of his. 😧

    On the local BSS there is an ad for 'Pathers'.🙄 I believe it is meant to say 'Pavers' but I guess if you use them to build a path they could be 'Pathers'. Right?? 😉

    This has probably already been mentioned, but it's really getting to me and I've been seeing it a lot. People writing "I am bias" instead of biased.

    "You should see a councillor" annoys me so much!!!

    It's almost as annoying as people who use 'been' in place of 'being'. "My daughter is been very good today" ....

    One that gets me is parents who need to go and see the 'Principle' of my school *blink*
    Our Principal would not be pleased if he saw this!
