Coffee Brewing Instrukshuns - Game Day

This showed up on our coffee maker at work today. I kinda had to share it. I get the feeling the worker who typed it up was trying SO HARD to sound eezy-breezy yet succinct, but. . . damn. This is verbatim, and ver-punctuation, ver-everything. (hey i don't claim to be super-smart either) If you're going to type up something that EVERYONE will see it's fair game yall, it just is.

Coffee Brewing
  1. Insert a filter into the funnel
  2. Pour the fresh coffee into the filter and level the bed of ground by gently shaking.
  3. Slide the funnel into the funnel rails.
  4. Place an empty dispenser beneath the funnel
  5. Pour one picture of tap water into the screened area on top of the brewer.
  6. When brewing is completed, simply discard the grounds and filter

OKAY !!! Game on tramps, who can spot the most mistakes? I'm placing the dummy-bar at 5, do me proud.

urgh!! that comment by "Andrew" is me... I didn't notice the husband's name on the account before I left my comment. Same goes for the previous post-- sorry! I can be such an airhead sometimes.

Jenny - AHHHHHHAHAHAHAH ! That's hilarious! I was thinking this morning "wow I have a man-reader" and clicked the name to see the profile - but there wasn't one - and I thought OOoooo mysterious! LMAO that's funny! I'll post in the morning the 5 I found, but no, not smarter just anal and wierd of me I think.

OK, I counted four but then I wasn't sure if 'rails' was a mistake which means three. I wasn't looking at punctuation mind... very amusing...

Sparx said...

PS - I KNEW it... I KNEW you'd be knocked up within a year - yaaay!!!

er... that is you, isn't it? And, that's, er, not a tequila-belly you're calling 'Daisy'. Is it? Well? Is it?

Hee heeee!!! Now you're going to know what I've been rambling on about for such a long time, hooray!!!

Sparx said...

OK, I have now read back everything and I feel LAME LAME LAME!!! I stopped reading blogs a while ago from lack o time and cannot BELIEVE I missed all of this. I've posted about a million comments (ok, maybe four) so you're going to have to go back to read them all.

Congratulations SOOOOOOO much by the way, I'm beyond over the moon for you.

We need, however, to find you someone to come to the hospital with you. See if the hospital has some ante-natal classes, you might meet someone local there who might know someone who you can meet to be a birth partner. I know you don't want someone you don't know but if you get to know them now it might be easier. Maybe someone in Mexico who can cross the border with you? Seriously, you can't drive across the border while you're in labour, someone has to take you. You can be as hard as they come but just listen to Auntie Sparx on this one and try to find someone local or at the hospital who can at least get you there and maybe even hold your hand. OK. I'm done now. I think.xxxxx

Sparx !! EEEEEEE!!!!! I knew you'd get it eventually :P I was waiting patiently :) Lord knows we get BUSY sometimes and don't have all the time to be sitting around reading people go on about stuff :) KNOCKED UP !!! CRAP right?!?? So I can't drive in labor? Well shit we have taxis I guess - I wonder if those bastards would drive up the price on me? A labor partner? What a way to finaly make a friend here :P Thank You Sparx !!! :)

Ok well here goes - He used a period only twice (and last sentence even used a COMMA but no period.)

He forgot the "s" on the word grounds in the second sentence.

He used the word "Picture" instead of pitcher.

Now you know! I'm a freak that can't spell for shit and I have no idea how to properly use a comma but I'm picky as hell when it comes to other people. Like I said - FREAK !

I found the ones you said, and also noticed:

"When brewing is completed"

It's either "is complete", or "has completed".

Now I'm sure there is a name for breaking the "tense" rule, but yeah... that's another one.

Sgt - EEEEEEEEE!!!! I love you! You're def. my kinda man.
