All that thing needs is a superfluous set of quote marks.  :o

"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!
My cousin's memoir of love and loneliness while raising a child with multiple disabilities will be out on Amazon soon! Know the Night, by Maria Mutch, has been called "full of hope, light, and companionship for surviving the small hours of the night."

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

Not really a sign, but . . .
