Someone advertising rooms for students to rent in Oxford, including the
"Located in Oxford City center and a 5 minuet walk to the central train
"As well as being surrounded by potential friends you will also have
your own space as each room consists of a private en-suite bathroom."
"There is a on-suite warden and 24 hr CCTV operating around and inside
the building to ensure safety of all of our tenants."
Landladies should be judged by their cleaning habits, not their
Spellcheckers are free. In my experience, any business can be judged by
its attention to detail, and attitude to potential customers.
Someone who is sloppy and careless from the word go, is telling their
audience they don't give a toss about care and attention. A dire warning
of what level of service to expect further down the line.
Nothing in Katy's posting indicated the source of the ad copy. I suspect
it was a hand-written (or hand-printed), photocopied flyer tacked up
where potential tenants might see it.
The woman who did up my room in College each morning was a lovely, and
talkative, person [Over Here I would have used "lady" in either of those
places], but I imagine she'd have come up with an ad very like that one.
Her son is to be married this month, in the chapel of one of the colleges,
and she's never seen the college or its chapel. I said I might go to the
Ashmolean, and she said she'd heard it was very nice. She has barely ever
traveled outside Oxford -- I told her we'd be going to Brighton mid-week,
and she said that when they go to the seaside, it's to Bournemouth [did I
remember that correctly?] because it's closer.
