Day 3, Friday: Things that make you uncomfortable
Discomfort comes in many forms, from watching a film's sex scene with your parents, to wearing tight jeans just after a big dinner. My main discomfort is seeing spelling/grammar/punctuation mistakes on signs or in newspapers. In fact, I hate seeing those mistakes anywhere. Anything that is published to be read by the public should always be checked, checked, and checked again.
I get a sick feeling in my stomach whenever I see one, and it's worse when I know I can't do anything to correct it. A violent urge then rushes through my body and I want to scream and hurt someone (normally the person who has made the faux pas). My head pounds and my heart races, and I want to scratch my skin off. Ok, maybe I'm exaggerating (slightly) but I do feel a bit queasy whenever I spot a language error.
Here are a few apostrophe catastrophes, pluralisation violations, and other grammar grumbles I've spotted along the way.
