Lol, I hear ya.

ISLE vs AISLE

That is certainly one of the common spelling / grammar errors we see on WBee.

Another big one is VOWEL RENEWAL vs VOW RENEWAL.  Also drives me nuts.

You would think if you were planning a Wedding you’d at least know the basic terminology & their spelling.

But then I try to be kind, and tell myself “that perhaps” not everyone’s mother tongue is English

That helps… me find the kindness / patience needed.

Hope this helps,

agreed!

Also, invite is a verb. The paper item with which you invite someone is an invitation.

@mrsSonthebeach:  I hear ya,

But this one really is both a YES and NO

The idea of “I got an Invite in the mail today”… is becoming (sadly) more and more accepted by our society.

@Duncan:  I too cringe when I see this. I also get a mental image of a woman in a wedding dress wandering up and down the beach on a deserted isle. That gives me a good laugh.

TO @Duncan: you are killing me here… have had some great humourous exchanges with you in the last 2 days.  (Starting with your Hockey post)

(PS… Did you notice how my Sens WON that series ??? Now if your Leafs can just hold on for another 5 minutes… what are the chances ?)
