my life in snapshots
way oops. illiteracy has spread to greetings cards???
*head/ desk, head/ desk, head/ desk; repeat to fade...*
I know, how many people saw this before it made it to the shelf??
Oh. My. God.
I think you should name and shame
OH NO! Big sighs!
Inside it says "Sorry your leaving"
I Also Hate That Every Word Is Capitalised.
Shocking, isn't it? It was in a wee independent card shop, can't remember the name.
I've learned that it's very difficult to buy a large retirement card that doesn't have a drawing of a small animal sitting in a deck chair or a 'fingernails-down-a blackboard' grammatical error on the front. I imagine the card makers assume that by retiral age you'll be too dyted* to either notice or care
* Scots adj. Crazed, enfeebled or confused in mind
I've got a retirement card as our work's cleaner goes on Friday and it's very similar to this one. I had to check it after seeing this but it's OK, no bad grammar...
Phew ; )
question is, will anyone notice? or will there be general despair about the state of the world? personally, I have come to enjoy the new grammar.
(P) what's this?
