At a hundred yards...

I wasn't even looking, I swear. I was just walking past and something caught my eye; I thought 'something's not right there' and I had to turn back and look until I'd worked out what it was.
Proofreader woman. Never off duty. It's a blessing and a curse.

And yes, I am only too well aware that this blog is frequently very poorly proofread.


  1. Grocer's apostrophe - crops up everywhere.

  2. Tut tut University of Southampton.... but let’s not call it a printers error, we used to spot them before they were printed in volume.

  3. Ah, I thought the greengrocer's apostrophe manifested in plurals...

    Nev, no way was I blaming the printers - I blame Scientists... and at the University of Sheffield as well as Southampton!
