    That's like the funeral ad where they count the 'f' words - when I first saw it they didn't count four and five in the phone number but they quickly fixed it. Dopey dopey!!!

    Heard on the bus to work this morning...."Alls I'm saying is...." - AAH IT IS NOT PLURAL!!! And he kept saying it :/. Wanted to smack him upside the head but managed to restrain myself.

    If it's a chronic abuser of the word (I know two of them), it may well be!

    I just saw the word Ladie. Twice. In one sentence!

    Wouldn't it be quicker to type 4 letters rather than 5?

    The word lady is everywhere ie. advertising, the supermarket etc. That is a really simple one IMO how it could be wrong twice is beyond me

    I read an article today that said a woman 'owes a building' instead of owned.
