A man traveling as a passenger on a motorcycle yesterday afternoon, told how he was titilated when he saw a woman walking in the street wearing a shirt that had a message on it containing a spelling mistake.
The man, Moys Kenwood, 55, was on his way home when he happened to notice the woman and her shirt, a red-and-black lumberjack-style affair, with the message on the back. It read:
I'M HAVING A BAD DAY I DON'T WANT TO TALY
Kenwood chuckled to himself about this, but then wondered whether it really mattered, in the 'big scheme of things'. The woman was, most likely, totally oblivious of the manufacturer's error in printing, and, had she known, would probably not have cared in the slightest. It was extremely unlikely that the message displayed the wearer's true feelings, and she had, indeed, looked as if she were happy enough, chatting away to another lady. It dawned on him, in the split second it took for these thoughts to manifest themselves in his mind, that she looked a darned sight better than he felt, and the message on the shirt might have been more appropriate had it appeared on his own shirt, rather than on that of the happy, smiling woman.
This made him feel miserable.
