You mean your mum (not Mum) was a proofreader (one word) at Baxters (sometimes mentioned in articles with a possessive apostrophe, but mostly without) during the War (war begins with a capital, as it's refering to a specific one).

Sorry that I couldn't afford your education sir. My Dad died in the war and I didn't get to school much as I had to work to put food on the table. My Mum had a shrapnel wound which she got while fire watching to keep the people of Lewes safe. Have a nice day.

I was talking to a woman where I worked years ago and asked what her husband did for a living. She said, 'Promise you won't laugh.' I said Yes. 'He's a proofreader for the Guardian.' That was in the famous Grauniad days.

@Actually - I'm very sorry that you had so much misfortune and I hope that life has been kinder to you since. I didn't pay for my education and taught myself grammar after someone told me how bad my English was. I know I can be a pain in the neck and didn't mean to be rude.

I find it utterly inane when people with too much time on their hands post on this forum to correct grammar and syntax. This forum isn't The Times for god's sake and for me these posts are annoying even though, just like the next person I don't like an incorrectly used apostrophe or whatever. If that's the best you can do where commenting is concerned then go for a walk!
