Aisle: passageway between seating areas
Isle: a small island
Ok that is my snotty post for today, sorry bee. also I will note its hypocritical because I’m the worst speller ever and have tons of mistakes in my post but for whatever reason every time I see this one and its a lot, I cringe. all I read is when is “When I walk down the small island”

haha, I’m glad I’m not the only one annoyed by small things like that! I’m a bit of a grammar and spelling freak though.

Ha! Good one! I know that I post and my brain can’t keep up with my fingers as I type, but they are clear case of tying too quickly, not incorrect words! LOL! Hopefully they won’t get offended, just a little embarassed and learn a lesson for the day.

Advise vs advice makes me nuts. I’ll totally admit it. I know I make mistakes a lot too though, so I try to keep myself in check 😉

@Snowy414: Thank you!!! This one makes me cringe too, but I didn’t want to say anything since I’m not one to preach being an ESL speaker and saying stupid stuff all the time myself.
Once I was trying to prove to my husband I do not find James McAvoy all that attractive and there’s no reason to be jealous. I wanted to point out something imperfect like his nose. Except instead of “well, he does have a huge schnoz”, what I said was “well he does have a huge schlong!”. You can imagine that one didn’t go over very well, LOL.
