Bad Speeling

There's a forthcoming certain Son of Romo's 6th birthday coming up this Friday. Whilst out hastily purchasing vast amounts of party bag goodness this weekend I came across some rather bad spelling - incredible! Wow - an invertation - is that like an invite that closes in on itself? Almost as bad as my attempt at spelling feasible in my O Level English GCE (yes, that's pre-GCSE - I am getting on a bit). In a fit of panic I spelt it pheasable. Nice - derived from the verb to pheasant of course?

Savannah - oh yes - colanders for everyone

Tesco local to my workplace have big signs hanging from the ceiling with grave misuse of the apostrophe in plurals.

Rivergirlie - hello there! Oh yuck - is that as well as the after-school Advanced Mandarin for 5 yr olds? I kid you not - it goes on - I met a teacher who says she teaches kids that get dragged off to such torture after school on Fridays - by their nannies of course as the crummymummies are out getting a bikini wax whilst snuffling more double skinny triple zero half cap caff at the local spa. x

Every day I pass a sign that says 'Sharon's Toiletrie's', and its next-door neighbour, 'Moira's Fruit and Juice's'. Fair drives me potty.
