To add some humour...


Recommended Posts

After having dug to a depth of 10 feet last year outside of New York City, New York scientists found traces of copper cable dating back 100 years. They came to the conclusion that their ancestors already had a telephone network more than 100 years ago.
 
Not to be outdone by the New Yorkers, in the weeks that followed, a Los Angeles, California archaeologist dug to a depth of 20 feet somewhere just outside Oceanside. Shortly after, a story in the LA Times read: “California archaeologists report a finding of 200-year-old copper cable, have concluded that their ancestors already had an advanced high-tech communications network a hundred years earlier than the New Yorkers.”
 
One week later, a local newspaper in Baton Rouge, LA reported the following: “After digging down about 30 feet deep in his pasture down the bayou, Boudreaux, a self-taught archaeologist, reported that he found absolutely nothing. After consulting with his best friend, Thibodeaux, Boudreaux and Thibodeaux concluded that 300 years ago, Louisiana had already gone wireless”.

It’s amazing the number of people I have worked with over the years that can’t use any of those correctly.  
The other thing that gets on my nerves is using “less” when they should use “fewer”, especially the signs at the grocery store, 10 items or less…. Should be 10 items or fewer.  🤷🏼‍♂️

Oh yes! It’s so easy to know which to use,  but I don’t think vocabulary is emphasized in school any more. 

Now I'm all confused.   Would it be I don't think vocabulary is emphasized in school any MORE or any GREATER?🤪

(That's not my breakfast so I have no idea what's in the cup. I can assure you, if it was mine, it would have coffee in it)
