I received an email message that said "Please see the attached invitation for futher information." But there was no attachment.
A few minutes later I received a follow-up email that said: "Sorry this email has the attached invitation."
Of course, that should be something like this: "Sorry. This email has the attached invitation."
The original follow-up message is so funny that I used it in class to show the importance of punctuation. Please feel free to do the same, and to use our "comment" function here on the blog to add your own examples of sentences with punctuation problems.
