All that thing needs is a superfluous set of quote marks.  :o
And the 's' in Gas to be treated the same as the others*: Ga's.

"Inconvenius" sounds like a minor deity in a Terry Pratchett story. The god of gas pumps that don't take debit cards, perhaps?

Is there a "signs that make your inner grammar nerd cry" category?


Wow.  This one would drive me batty.  It's like a puzzle to seek and find all of the many mistakes.  How many are there?

Now you've made me curious :-P

2 x extra apostrophes
1 x wrong "your"
1 x random capitalization For Every Word
1 x missing missing period after "cards"
1 x "in side" should be one word
1 x extra space between "your" and "debit card" (although this is picky, I'll admit)
1 x missing either an "and" or punctuation between "thank you" and "sorry"
1 x "inconvenius"

So looks like nine total, or 31 if you count Each Strange Capitalization as its own error  :P

The weirdest part is, it's not Every Word that's capatlized. There are two that aren't, which makes it even worse.

Thanks for doing the mistake count.  I missed a couple of them.  Then after cwm's post, I had to find the two words that weren't capitalized (I saw "pay" but missed "you").  Maybe they made this sign on purpose just to entertain people.

This was at a hot food buffet that had labels with ingredients for each item.  We'll pretend that this was for sweet potato casserole:

Sweet potatoes? Cream? Maple syrup? Brown sugar? Flour? Oats? Butter? Pecans?

I thought, "I don't know.  You made the food, you tell me."

I think s/he has been far too busy as of late!

I dunno, that flour and oats sounds pretty iffy to me.   ;)
