Prisoner or Jailer of Time

"Better three hours too soon than a minute too late." – William Shakespeare

Prison and jail are words that invoke discomfort, especially in kids who were conditioned as a child that police will put them in jail if they do not obey.


Even though the word, prison and jail are used interchangeably to express confinement by legal authority, when the letters ‘ER’ is added to the end of these two words, the meaning changes like day and night. That is, prison becomes prisonER and the Jail becomes jailER.
