I’ve been driving by this sign for weeks and finally managed to snap a picture yesterday. If you live in Charlottesville, this may be a familiar view to you. I don’t feel bad about dissing the “restuarant” in question as it’s closed (I don’t even recall a time when it was open).
This kind of mistake drives me up the wall. I always wonder how the heck something like this happens. How many pairs of eyes looked at a sign like this before it was hung? Was the printer asleep at the wheel? Argh!
My point in sharing this is that I know I’m not the only person who has this violent reaction to grammar gaffes, particularly the permanent, publicly visible variety. What kind of reputation do you think a place like this earns with those of us who are driven mad by poor attention to detail?
How about you? Does this stuff drive you crazy?
