Driving down a main Phoenix street the other day and this caught my eye. Probably because a family member lives in Albuquerque so I actually use it more than usual and have to say it in my head by syllable to get it right, but obviously the sign painter for this local bus company didn’t pronounce the syllables correctly.
This is particularly appropriate as we have a heat advisory here in Phoenix for tomorrow and they expect it to be near record heat at 111. THAT is stinky weather!
Make sure you check ALL parts of an email before you send it. And make sure your autosignature is correct! This was in an email I received from local counsel’s office–more than once. I finally told this person so we’ll see if it is changed in the next email or if I just offended them.
I rarely watch commercials–either I’m watching TV from a DVR or I am doing something else while commercials are on, but I caught this local bedding store ad yesterday during the news and had to use it here. I’ve heard of “Clearance Priced” but not “Clearanced Priced.” I’m sure they paid a lot of money for this advertisement to air multiple times, including on the local news program, so these kinds of errors are just plain embarrassing!
I saw this on Twitter. No words . . .
It is disappointing enough when students don’t know which version of “there/their/they’re” to use on their Facebook posts, but when school instructors don’t know the difference, it does not bode well for improvement in Facebook statuses in the future.
This error puts a whole new meaning into the message.
I was able to catch this sign on my way to work recently. It has since been fixed, but was incorrect for several days. Maybe it is a new version of a Walgreens meme or a new name for meme followers. But I’m thinking it was just an error.
I was doing a little research on Tombstone, Arizona, as a potential day trip when this jumped out at me on the City’s webpage. I’m most afraid that someone thinks this is correct because it looks the way a lot of people say it–but it’s not.
This one came from Twitter. It is hard to believe that not only did a sign maker make the error, but the business owner has not removed it and demanded that it be corrected.
