I've made a few mistakes in my day

  1. Sep 3, 2006 #1
    It's easy to make mistakes when you are bored and miserable. Especially after a long day at work here in the hot Arizona sun. Yesterday I submitted a brain teaser and was quickly told that it had multiple answers and was grammatically incorrect. I only see one mistake, not two. What is it?

    Also not uniquely answerable. There several ways that one mistake or omission could have made this the way it is. Only you know which one is the real mistake....

    Waitaminnit! Did you just edit that post????

    Why are you bored and miserable?

    I think it may be the grammatical error, which generated the extra answers?

    Nope none of those are the correct answer. to THIS brainteaser.
    answer:
    If you look at the times these brainteasers were submitted and convert to Arizona time you see that they were submitted on the same day. So my mistake is in claiming I wrote one a day before the other.

    OK, so did I (eventually) get the right answer?
