Those of you who are wondering what's wrong with me, why such a title, have i lost it etc. etc., please read on before writing me off as a writer. And those of you who did not find any errors in the title, this post is meant for you.
Now, let's be honest here. How many of you have come across such people who make such errors? How many posts write quite instead of quiet and vice versa? Is it loose motions or lose motions? Well, in case of motions, both are equally dangerous, still, imagine losing motions! Or, lose denim and loose weight!
It's difficult for many to decide where they are supposed to use its and it's. Many make this common error. Such glaring errors do happen, as to err is human. But repeating the same thing again and again even after being corrected - erm, is it still called human?
And those - I didn't knew, I didn't went types. Again, a common mistake people make. And when you try to correct them, their response will be "haan haan, English to sirf tumko hi aati hai. Hum to gavaar hai!" At least i have stopped to point out sms lingo when it comes to reading blogs. Wud, cud, your (you are), ur (your) and such get on my nerves; but I ignore that post altogether.
Now comes the common most error. this is something we are not taught in school, but it has always been present in our regular conversations. Yesterday Night - almost all of us say this. But my logic and understanding think otherwise - yesterday means previous day and yesterday night means previous day night - how is it possible to have day and night together? Is it day before yesterday night or night before the last? I am sure the creators of the words - last night and night before the last must have been stupid and illogical! How can they prove 90% of us wrong?
Do you have long hairs? Or is it hair? But we have many hairs right? What do you think?
Now let me guess, after reading this post, how many of you will choose not to comment? Guilty speaks? Remember, I have read your posts and known you well, thus this post.
So, what do you prefer? Loose motions or lose motions?
