Maybe it's just me, but it drives me nuts and I just shake my head every time I grab my PerfecDraw and see the grammatical error on box.  Maybe I'm just being anal. Any one else notice it? Did no one read before printing?

It's just emphasising the silent T. Like the silent P in swimming pool...

Perhaps also stay away from the H.Upmann Connossieur A and Connossieur B?

I once tried that at the deep end of the pool, but the Lifeguard saw me and blew his whistle. Startled me so much, I nearly fell in....

I'm not talking about the name, read the warning! Exercises? Instead of exercise

Don't you mean the grammatical error on THE box. Not grammatical error on box...
That Sir, would appear to be a grammatical error on your part. Honours even, n'est pas?

That's your take on this? I'm not the one sending out millions of units around the world with this error. But really do appreciate you being my little spell checker since my phone didnt

No offence taken I hope. I'm actually annoyed with myself that I didn't spot it earlier. And yes, you're right, with PerfecDraw it's a glaring error that should have been corrected.

You could just scratch off the offending 's' on your box. Might help?

Just checked mine and it doesn't have that warning, just says to watch the instructional video online.

I'm a man, so I do not read warnings, instructions, or ask for directions.

Right! Not sure why I read it one day, just killing time I guess while smoking my cigar.

It's a cultural thing, I'm British. Lol indeed.

"There is no difference in meaning between offence and offense. They're exactly the same in all their definitions. The difference is that offense is the preferred spelling in American English, while offence is preferred in British, Indian, Canadian, and Australian English."

I'm following you, just looks funny spelled that way. Of course I'm from Texas and we say ya'll,  for "you all" so understand the cultural thing.

@ Akela3rd, may not have been the best idea to write about grammatical errors and use French in next sentence. Imo, ‘n’est pas’ in not really correct. Lol

"in not really correct"....?
Oh, this could go on and on.
Anyway, we're still part of Europe for the moment so why not appropriate a word or two, verstehen?
