In a hospital. The sign:

"This area is only for babie's"

And dangerous, surely? What are the parents supposed to do - drop them into "the area" and stand back? Tsk.

Marvellous In fairness they're probably too busy catching rats to bother with accuracy.

(Actually it can't even be true, can it? Are these babies completely unsupervised?)

Horrible sign

Are you getting worried about past participles at all? I feel there is a worrying trend to avoid using them properly. It's one of my preoccupations.

Quattro, if you tell us that it's keeping you awake at night, I swear I will out you as Giles Coren.

is for babys' only, shurely?

LOL Not keeping me awake exactly more a lingering sense of unease ...

What's upsetting you, Quattro?
