Correct spelling is a pet peeve of mine as well. I HATE it when people spell things wrong!! Guess that's because I used to proofread for a living! Ha!
Okay I can tolerate an error or two, but that many would bother me too!
LOL, I'd have to tear that sign right down and replace it.
yes, bad spelling is rampant and I am guilty of it myself. i love spell check!
Hilarious, Lisa ;-) There are whole blogs devoted to apostrophe misuse and the like... I can't read them often as they make me cringe.
Oh I'm right there with them! (or is it write their? LOL) My pen is red and I'm not afraid to use it!!!!
Bad spelling and text/chat speak in formal letters or email notices give me a headache too. but this sign is so funny. :)
Hahahaha!Happy WW! See photos of my favorite garden in London ... Kensington Gardens http://tinyurl.com/ykoq3ty
I'm very dyslexic when typing so my words come out all scrambled. On top of that I have vision issues. No matter how carefully I proofread something always seems to slip by. The good news is - I noticed the other day that I have progressed to the point where I now automatically proofread whatever is in front of me. So perhaps there is yet hope. All that said, this looks like a case of sheer ignorance and/or neglect to use spell check. ( Please forgive any typos ;)
English is my second language, and I'm probably guilty of misspelling sometimes, but I hate it too!
OK, that's very funny!!
Speaking of grammar, did you hear about Birmingham, England choosing to not use the apostrophe?Back in January it was all over the news. Here is a link to the article. copy and past the link to MSNBC's article: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/28938136/
You would think they would have changed the sign by now! I recently read a book written by an American lady. No problem so far. But she had written the book in Old English, since it was the story of Darcy (from Pride and Prejudice). Now, there are several (still existing) differences between British English and American English, most notably the use of the letter U in words like colour and neighbour. Old English would have used the U, this lady didn't! It drove me up the wall and diminished my reading pleasure. I don't mind skipping the U in contemporary literature/books, but when you write in Old English: do it properly or not at all. Oh, and for you people out there who would love to read the book anyway (because it is a really nice book): Darcy's Passions by Regina Jeffers.
This is great! Someone needed a proofreader.
LOL! Now thats funny. I borrowed a book from the library a few weeks back and someone had corrected not only the spelling but the grammar, it was not that bad really but obviously this person was offended.
OOPS! I wonder why the person who wrote the original doesn't take it down an write a new one. Hmmm. Could it be the person doesn't work there any more?
I saw this in your fb comments. I can't believe someone misspelled such easy words. Hope all is well. Have a great day.
That is really bad! Even I as a non-native English speaker can see what a disaster that sign is!
I'm glad to see that grammar and spelling still count for some people. Great image!
what does the toilet paper comment written beneath it mean?
Grin - engrish at it's Best.(Like I said before, not that I am perfect - far from it, but I love it :D!)
That gave my the giggle for the day I needed Lisa, how funny! Have a great WW!
O. My. Goodness.I would have wanted to do it but don't if I would have.so funny!
shaking my head here!
That was hilarious! Thanks for the best laugh so far today!
Oh, that's funny!
I love it! As an editor in my former life, I would have been all over this!!!
Oh, I can't say anything. I'm the worst typist in the whale wide word.
