Just a curiosity: how many of you take "joy" in spotting grammar slip-ups?
It's a pet pastime of mine.
You can walk down the street and see so many of them. Have sign-writers never heard of proofreading before they finish?
I'm in a giddy mood today. I'm not expecting any replies! :yeah

Thanks, Vijaya.
I don't plead innocence, so of my slip-ups are ridiculous, but these are professionals.

I don't take joy in it, well not all. Sometimes I wonder at them, especially in published works. But some are really funny.
