Simon lists a few linguistic errors that make his neck hair stand on end. Simon reads more often than he likes:When will a new single be released?“I can live with typos. No, someone really thinks that when the correct spelling is! Where did it go wrong? “His frustration from the Volendammer.
He finds it even worse when people write words incorrectly in their own field. As an example he gives: ‘We received an application from an interviewer for a – according to him – interview. I’m sorry, but I can’t take such a man seriously anymore. He writes, of course! You know, words! “
Colleagues cannot escape Simon’s annoyance either. When other musicians write their new ‘girth ‘ to announce, it crackles in his head. “There is such a thing as a Singel, but that’s the canal in Amsterdam. (…) If I girth see, my hands are itching to correct such a person in a public response. “
According to him, even people with dyslexia have no valid excuse. “I can’t help feeling that many people hide behind the condition quite easily,” he writes.

Another remarks: “Please let these people in their value and pay attention to yourself.”
