well, I try not to be pedantic about spelling/grammar even though it grates a bit - but after all it not going to stop the world turning!
However, I work in tourism and of course we get many lovely posters and promotional bits to advertise "What's On" locally. But so many come to us with appalling mistakes, eg
"Our center is free of charge"
"Treatments at our spa are entirely non-evasive"
Anyway, I felt I must make a stand when a rep from a local attraction came in today with glossy, colourful posters for a Hallowe'en food event. It was a gorgeous poster. Unfortunately the wording read ... "Mum's! Dad's! Kid's get FREE ice cream Sundae's!"
I mentioned the mistakes to the rep. "What mistakes?", he asked. I pointed them out more carefully, he just didn't see it!!
Well anyway I refused to accept them on the grounds that it is a family event and any children (or adults for that matter) might copy those mistakes.
Will I be banished to the Tourist Information Centre in Hell?
