    Maria Maria angel I think it is you who needs the dictionary. Please check you ability to spell and use grammar before you try to correct someone. Barbados today have proof readers and they do a great job. The waving you are referring to is not the waiving they were implying in that statement. It was correctly used by them. Please stop trying to shore up the failure of the Barbados school system, if you don’t know hush up.
