G.E.T.A.L.I.F.E.

The more years you spend in your job, the more certain skills get fine tuned. After ahem number of years teaching I can now spot a spelling or punctuation mistake at ten paces. I don't mean to do it, in fact I try to avoid it, but I just can't help it. It's like saying
Don't think of a purple kangaroo.
And you just did!
The harder I try to ignore written errors, the worse it gets. But things have reached crisis point and I realise that I now need help.
Today such a beautiful day I couldn't be bothered cooking, so I decided to have my tea out in a café. There are a couple in a nearby town so I took a quick peek at their displayed menus. I had a favourite in mind, but I recoiled in horror!
THEIR APOSTROPHES WERE IN THE WRONG PLACE!!!
There, for all to see were
Starter's
and
Main Course's
and
Dessert's
It put me right off. I'm sorry but I feel that if they are that careless writing their outdoor menu, then they might be equally careless while reading a recipe! So I went to the next café!
