    An English professor wrote the words:

    "A woman without her man is nothing"

    on the chalkboard and asked his students to punctuate it correctly.


    All of the males in the class wrote:

    "A woman , without her man , is nothing."



    All the females in the class wrote:

    "A woman: without her, man is nothing."



    Punctuation is powerful
    :rolleyes::rolleyes:

    Sure it is....Thanks for sharing....were there incidents where you went to write something and because of punctuation problem, you wrote it and it meant something else?

    haha, I had the sms embarrassment as well

    I have wrote many emails where I didn't check what I wrote...and I didn't fix the punctuation and it meant something really different. I'm sorry it was a while back so I can't remember the phrase....But yeah, sometimes when you don't have commas or semicolon in your sentences, it's very hard to get your point across

    what i hate in computer's punctuations is the position of commas..
    i used to write for example : (( Hello , can you help me ? ((
    and it comes wrong .. because it has to be like this (( Hello, can you help me? (( ..
    which i dont like it at all , but i have to correct it especially with formal papers at work ..

    Wow ladies at some points you really think above average!

    Well the ladies defined the saying using their own experience as women.

    For us, the guys it would have been hard coz we don't know how a life of a woman works out!


    Secondly My punctuation is awful. Why? coz i never paid any attention at class back then in yemen!
    I used to sleep the whole time, or eat za3gah and exchange sms messages with friends!
