My daily random ramblings
Recently P was browsing through the local Buy and Sell ads looking for some second hand bookshelves.
He came across a post advertising "Chester draws. Good condition".
Love it! Education at its best :)
We wondered whether it was meant as a joke. Tgese days it is hard to tell.
Oops... these days.... fat fingers!
As opposed to Bristol draws or York draws? Lordy.
I have often seen draws written instead of drawers but perhaps these do indeed come from Chester.
From the title I thought this was going to be a report of a football match.
Rather like winter draws on.
Or an artist called Chester prefers drawing to painting?
Chester draws Manx cats and a lady blog writer called JayCee.😊
Chester draws well...
Here on this side of the pond it is sometimes shortened to “chester.” Not a joke.
The English language seems to become lazier with each passing year.
It took me a while to figure out what they meant - chest of drawers, right? Boy, I need to perk up!
They just write it as they say it, no need to bother with spelling or vocabulary.
Ur so rite!
Chester Draws... sounds like a football result! Chester 1 Real Madrid 1. Well done Chester!
You and Tasker are so alike.
He is much more handsome than me. I'm so ugly I wear a Fred Flintstone mask when I go out.
Amazing that you managed to sire such beautiful children.
I shake my head every time I see someone advertising a dinning room set.
Oh yes, same here! There are too many more examples unfortunately.
That reminds me of the Aussie property advert 'Gloria Soame for sale'.
Ha, ha, ha! Love that one!
Maybe they are dyslexic ? XXXX
Yes, could be so, Jackie xxx
That's a common mistake these days. One of many which annoys the hell out of me. Sign of the times
I think that I may be too old-fashioned in my views on spelling and grammar.
As a parent of a dyslexic son, I know for a fact he wouldn't write that! It's about how you speak to be honest. If you speak clearly it's very clearly chest of ...... Can you tell this stuff drives me nuts? I know I'm very old fashioned! And don't start me on the fact they apparently don't correct spelling in primary schools any longer......!
There are plenty of examples around of lazy speech...that frustrates me as I am so hard of hearing and often find I am unable to understand when oeople do not speak clearly. They then just shout instead, thinking it is volume not clarity that is needed!
Although I am quite used to talking to myself, any comments on my posts are very welcome, provided they are not abusive. I do reply to them so please check back. It's good to talk (!)
