OK, I own up. It irritates me every time I read it. Of course I understand the point the clever little sentence I’m about to tell you is trying to express, but it has the same effect as:
a) People in their cars who indicate to turn right AFTER they’ve stopped to turn right
b) People who say ‘pacific’ when the word they mean is ‘specific’
c) Middle-aged men who whistle tunelessly
What’s the sentence? It’s: ‘There’s no such thing as failure, only feedback’.
