Common mistakes everyone makes

Posted: September 23, 2010 in common mistakes, tips

“people get paid”

Paid is not a noun. You can only “get” a noun. You ARE paid. She IS paid.

“he got tired”

He BECAME tired. She WAS tired.

Generalizations and opinions are not allowed: EVERYONE does not necessarily like blue curtains. Most people might like blue curtains, but not everyone. Just like not ALL men are the same (sorry girls, had to be politically correct even if we don’t agree 😉 )
