In the present paper we show that contractive condition employed by Al-Thagafi and Shahzad in particular and contractive conditions in general, do not constitute a proper setting for studying common fixed points of occasionally weakly compatible mappings. Further, we improve the results of Al-Thagafi and Shahzad by employing a proper setting.
