What a difference a day makes...


Twenty-four little hours... .

Oh ye of little faith!

(Did I mention it to them? Well, yes, I fear I did. I popped my head round the door and said - "Your sign - has anyone mentioned the spelling mistake?" and three voices chorused "Yes!"

Our area is quite heavily populated by retired people with nothing much to do.)

  2. LOL!! Good on you! And on the people who were so quick to change it. Very sensible really; that kind of error can seriously undermine consumer confidence!

  3. Oh, haha. I totally missed the spelling -- I was focused on the missing word "of". Maybe it's not really needed?

  4. I also care about such things. A colleague once asked me how I remembered which stationary/ery was which. I remember being quite young when I realised that 'e' for 'envelopes' would do the trick!

  6. WELL PLAYED! I would totally have sent them an email from New York if they hadn't moved to correct so fast. 8-) I absolutely abhor misspelled advertisements and signs. Don't even get me started on newspaper articles!
