Yellow board bloopers…..

Yellow board bloopers…..

OK, We’ve all done ‘em, probably lots of times. Trying to type too fast, you know the scenario, then you press that "confirm" button and you read what you’ve posted again and….. "$^£%&*!*"

Here’s one of mine: -

"…. was prompted to do some serious naval gazing…." Which showaddydadito pointed out:-

"Just a grammatical point, Ron,

contemplation is navel gazing

whereas naval gazing would be looking at boats"

So, what are your own personal favourite yellow board bloopers?

Aidan writing lfe’s too short instead of life’s too short, and then correcting in by writing life’s too short by one letter.

Anything by Michael Gill 🙂

Just a grammatical point Ron:

Do you really mean "$^£%&*!*"? or should that be "$^£*%&*!*"?

I mentioned one the other day, where one of our number said in his profile that he has played melodeons for "25 tears".

Sadly, he has now changed it to 25 years.

Is that the same as playing "96 Tears" at one-quarter time?

As a systems analyst, I write hundreds of programs with the word "count" in. I invariably speed type it with a letter ‘o’ missing, especially when there is a female looking over my shoulder.
