Spelling Nazi? More like Spelling Safety Patrol [Sep. 13th, 2007|11:49 am]

Okay, so I know I can get a bit nitpicky when it comes to other people's spelling and grammar.

But, when a display on a gas station coffee machine reads:

ALWAY'S FRESH

I think I have a right to blow a gasket.

Peace

i HATE, HATE, _HATE_ at work when people write:
Pop Cans "ONLY"
and
Trash "ONLY"
on the respective trash and pop can bins!

Those quotations are SUCH poor punctuation! I don't even know how someone gets the IDEA to do that!!!!

The Silver Lining

Hey, at least their job is labeling gas station coffee machines, and not, you know, being a DOCTOR or something.

Re: The Silver Lining

Hey, doctors can't spell for shit either... that's why they write so messy, so you can't tell they fucked up.
