In light of my blog yesterday on spelling and being able to write correctly, a colleague has just shown me an e-mail sent by a company director.
While it was well written, there was one huge error. They had written, “we would of” instead of “we would have“. Why do people constantly say or write this ” would of”? I think they should write the correct version out 100 times until they remember – WE WOULD HAVE, WE WOULD HAVE, WE WOULD HAVE!
I know this sounds like grumpy old grandma, but come on, I’m sure you were not taught to write like that at school.
