    Default Embarassed

    Hi,

    Please help me with this sentence.

    "There are three reasons why Miss Othman likes the Simpang Bedok Hawker Centre: first, she likes the great service she receives; second, she likes that patrons are greeted with a smile and third, the waiters give her a menu."

    Thanks in advance.

    What help are you looking for? The sentence is correct, though I would put a semi-colon after 'smile' to keep the list items separate.

    Thanks for the info. I hate using so much punctuation.

    I'm afraid we have to use it from time to time.
