Re: RPresta

I've been in that situation, and the hardest problem I had was feigning casual indifference when the truth smacked my forehead.  Thanks R/P.

Re: RPresta

You mean there's no wifi from the plot?   What am I going to do?  I might as well be dead.  Yes, I've heard that one as well R/P, and it has me grinding my teeth.

For years I thought some of my nephews were illiterate for the same reason. The laugh was on me.

And how ‘bout this one: ”If you or a loved one died (or suffered serious injury) while taking——, please call the law offices of - name of any attorney.” One needn’t be the brightest bulb in the house to know that if YOU died, etc., you won’t be using their law firm from the grave!

Re: RPresta

GASP   Would I DO such a thing?    I know what you mean - it's in the genes.   I had two sisters, both teachers.   After they both retired, the younger one tried to get the older one into the computer age by using blogging spelling.

The older one disowned her for years and years, for having the audacity to send letters without capitals.

Re:D

Oh, no! You mean to say that you’re been red-penciling me? Hahahah. That’s quite alright. I cant help myself; I do the same thing.

Re: Kabu

Thanks Kabu.   There's an ad on TV just now for something or other - can't remember what, but the commentator says something like ......'and it is contagious, and not only that it can be spread.'   It really grates.

Re: RPresta

I'd forgotten about the double call back these days; thank goodness I've passed that stage.

I have to resist the temptation to correct grammatical mistakes, but I do correct errors mentally.

Thanks R/P.

Re: Corbin_Dallas

I think you'd spend so much time double checking her schedule, that it wouldn't be worth while hiring her.  Thanks Corbin.

of course it is February. ..but there are lots of words that grate when mispronounced for me.

D - And a Happy Burns Night to All!

Hmm? Depends on just what the job was for which she was interviewing. I'd call her back for a second round, they always do that these days; have the second round of interviews. (I'd do it just to see if she could get that one right.) 

FebRUary. Agreed. But now you've got me thinking about all the little irks I have about people's speech and pronunciation. Personally, a top one for me is when someone says "the HIV virus." The V is for the word virus...so it's redundant, right?

I'd be concerned about her ability to schedule something?

Happy Feberwary!!!
