Dangling Participles IV

Dangling Participles IV – a grammatical faux pas

·       Having finished off my dinner, the waiter offered to bring out a selection of desserts.

·       Waiting for the school bus, time dragged by very slowly.

·       One morning I shot an elephant in my pyjamas. (Groucho Marx)

·       That man caught a catfish with a hat on.

·       After returning from the dead, my sister set the plants outside.

·       The teacher’s aide passed out sandwiches to all the first graders in plastic bags.

·       Leaving the store, the frothy latte fell and exploded all over the man waiting at the bus stop.
