What do you think of this sentence, suggested by Word's Grammar Checker?
"Ambulance, and his hand-me-down Mustang had been totaled had transported John."
Obviously, this is crazy. The following perfectly normal sentence is the one that Word wanted to change:
"John had been transported by ambulance, and his hand-me-down Mustang had been totaled."
My point here is that although it's good to turn on Grammar Checker, don't always believe it!
Bill Gates, if you happen to be reading this, you might want to work on the coding in your grammar program.
