    ha! maybe, but they'd need a glass of water, which, apparently, is no longer available.

    My wife once saw a sign on the street advertising "A Sealy Pasturepedic mattress with three draws". Nice for cows!

    While I understand your concern, the same standards don't apply to posting something on the internet that apply to writing your doctoral thesis.

    Their are times people isn't carfull with they're spelling and grammer and it shouldn't be to much too cut them some slack. :D

    I can't type for nuts. I only realized it was like the way I approached writing Mathematics- I'd get ahead of myself knowing what to say or do and skip things. A real error when I taught and lectured in Electronics and Maths related to it at College Level.. ( Music is Highly Mathematical and I could write a book right down to cent, the 12 th. root of two, and a whole lot of other things).
    But, I am human, and make mistakes in my haste.
    My problem with myself and other younger people extends to English and grammar.
    I could write sentences before kindergarten. My mother, a language teacher, and sister three years older and at school , helped. Also in numeracy which, apparently, I excelled in.
    I believe we need to teach young children ( 4 years of age , NOT 5) vowels, consonants , easy sentences like " My name is...". Phonics and encourage them to write with a pencil and paper so that thewy can erase a mistake, rectify it and feel better. Also how to write verbs, adverbs when need and adjectives. The host of basics. Coupled with another language. German, Spanish and Italian are good examples as they are as universal as most and similar to English. I do not advocate teaching typing too soon. Well, That's my rant.

    I often see ads on Craigslist and FB Marketplace listing items 'for sell'. Many times it is stated that the sale item is offered "in good conditions".

    Solution: If you see an ad with misspellings - don't by it

    Around here, the word "sale" is pronounced a lot like the word "sell" so I can see where the confusion might come in for someone who doesn't read much, or maybe didn't pay attention in school.

    Typical ad - "Antique Chester drawers for sell." Or maybe just "Chester for sell."

    Also saw someone selling a "matching chair" once.
