Thanks to my sister for sharing this one with me. So many things wrong with this sign.
Some that I notice right away:
- How can a photo be closed? I assume they mean photo DEPARTMENT.
- The comma is not appropriate.
- I’m not sure what “prolems” are, but imagine they are not as bad as “problems.”
- I don’t know about you, but I was always taught that proper nouns (like names of streets) should be capitalized. Apparently, this person was only taught to capitalize the first word in a sentence. The last sentence isn’t even a good sentence with all the words missing.
Having a sign with these many errors is almost worse than having no sign at all. Maybe I should make up a grammatically correct sign for them to use next time and drop it off. As long as their copier isn’t having “prolems.”
I made my friend Tara turn around during our trip to Seattle so I could get a picture of this one! The difference between Your and You are (You’re) is important! This would be so much funnier if it was correct!
A real example of how important proofreading is. This was sent to me by a friend who caught it before the document left her office, but both she and her boss missed it in the first few rounds. This is a mistake I make a lot. Can you find the error?
I was originally interested in this Justin Bieber story days ago just because I was actually there (and didn’t realize that’s what was happening). But today’s headline teaser … again … caught my attention for a different reason. Seriously local Fox News. “Loosing his lunch”? As opposed to “tighting his lunch”? Losing and Loosing are different — learn it!
I noticed this truck on the freeway the other day. It took me a few minutes to figure out what was wrong. Can you find it?
