Spelling and grammar in adverts - my white BX

Post by sub777w »

Thanks for all the comments. Nice to see I'm not alone judging by lack of grammar in some responses. No excuse but advert was drafted following a bottle of red wine and should never have been posted incomplete. Listing now amended and hopefully this time wont offend anyone on this forum. Just for the record I feel that i am justified in calling myself an 'enthusiast' as I have 5 citroens. However, I run a garage and thankfully don't teach English Language as my career of choice. I therefore make no apology for some spelling errors! Thankyou. :lol:

That's a lot better....but to be picky it would make it easier to read without the capitals. :wink:
If it ever stops raining in this country then maybe some pictures in the sunshine would be good too!

If I'd known a bottle of red wine was involved there's no way I could have criticised :lol: I've done a lot worse than that after some wine intake... usually involving buying as opposed to selling stuff :roll:

Good luck with the sale. ^^bx>

Hands held high on this one; I'm not the greatest speller even without the aid of red wine which has been pointed out to me on more than one occasion on here!
The advert is 10 x better now and will hopefully draw some interest for you. It's a shame to do all that work then part with it though!
