The Granny spotted this in last week’s Irish Daily Mail. She’s a stickler for spelling and grammar etc., possibly due to having worked in advertising for many years and she had actually kept the newspaper just to show off the awful mistakes. She’s of the attitude that there is no need or reason for it and I happen to agree.
It’s shocking for a company claiming to be a self-appointed ‘government watchdog’ to be unable to place a simple and correct advertisement in a national paper. Are standards slipping everywhere, I wonder, or am I just more tuned into mistakes and errors these days? Maybe I’m just taking after The Granny 🙂
