Very strangely worded posting just appeared here re moving to Shetland.....English doesn't appear to be first language.....no details regarding identity or area in Canada...

Am I being overly suspicious here?

No, I thought it was weird too. Very strange terminology re: animals for a supposed vet...

English isn't the first language of a good chunk of Canadians, between French and it being emigrant central, so I'm not sure how much store can be set in that.

 

i really wouldn't care to make a call on the post, its unusual, but plausible.

 

I can't knock anything for being "unusual" or even "strange", they let me come here after all. ;-)

Their use of the English language is not exactly perfect but it is markedly better than a large proportion of the English. They cannot use their own language, they can only abuse it.

Don't put yourself down like that Ghostrider, I'm sure you have proved an asset to the Shetland community.

 

Incidentally, I see you are selling glamour and hair beauty products on here. I see after studying your photo they have given spectacular results, perhaps you should keep them. Maybe even contact the company to see if they would consider adding your photo to the bottle.

A fair comment there George but I would suggest that you should not confine illiteracy comments to the English population.  It's rather a UK wide problem.

As for the posting being less than perfect, it's not so much the perfection, more the odd way it's phrased. In this day and age that makes it suspect I'm afraid.
