I mean, who keeps their knickers in a draw?

YANBU. And if they actually write 'chester draws', bin them.

But what if they're raffling off their knickers?

Chester draws. Good god.

Seems a bit of an overreaction to be honest.

It does make me wince slightly but there's some very nice, interesting people who just don't have a good grasp of grammar.

Our local Facebay is full of requests for 'chester drawers'. It took me far too long to work out what was going on.

They also like to ask for things like 'garden slide for a girl' (so, one that has a side section for her tampons?), hi-heals, and often describe things having 'sequence' on them.

I think they need all the chester draws to keep the multi-million pound stocks of insurance meerkat toys in though . . .

Ooh, I've just got a meerkat. Do they sell well on face bay?

They do on mine Viva but I live in a very odd place. £20 seems to be the going rate, and they fight over them confused.

Excellent. I've got a still boxed baby one.

Bowlersarm Mon 01-Sep-14 12:40:55

YABU. Too similar to notice when spoken aloud.

DiaDuit Mon 01-Sep-14 12:44:57

Not if you speak properly. There should be at least a 'f' sound to help with spelling it.

DiaDuit Mon 01-Sep-14 12:46:22

Sorry, i'm referring to the "chester draws"

Realise now the Op is just about "draws"

YANBU. I cannot bring myself to engage with anyone on our local fb selling pages who can't even remotely spell what they are selling! hmm confused grin

Phased instead of fazed.

I was in Tiger (great shop) the other day and was horrified to see price labels for "draw handles!"

It's quite scary to think that got through. Just checked online and it's drawer knobs on there...

I find good grammer and spelling to be the pentacle of humane acheivement and put on a pedalstool anyone whom gets it write.

PeachyParisian Tue 02-Sep-14 21:16:39

How do you pronounce them differently?

SociallyAcceptableCookie Tue 02-Sep-14 21:40:45

YANBU. I am a native English speaker but not from the UK and to me they are not the same pronunciation at all. It just makes me cringe. Achica was selling draw units this weekend and it wasn't just one typo. It was awful.

RobinSparkles Tue 02-Sep-14 21:43:56

YABU. You would refuse to engage with someone? Really?

Heaven forbid someone be less educated than yourself.


RobinSparkles Tue 02-Sep-14 21:45:22

*Could be less

I also shudder at draws. Facebook selling pages is full of it.

I have fb friend who checks in at home at the **** residents Took me a while to work out where she was.
