BooyhooRemembering Sat 03-Nov-12 17:47:51

YABU for not asing an AIBU question.

BooyhooRemembering Sat 03-Nov-12 17:48:19

sorry, should have added a grin on that.

TaggieCampbellBlack Sat 03-Nov-12 17:48:36

AIBU to be outrage'd?

Or offende'd

HecatePhosphorus Sat 03-Nov-12 17:48:45

Don't blame you, I would have been forced to complain

Someone will be along in a moment to claim it doesn't matter and it's perfectly understandable... but they will be wrong.

TaggieCampbellBlack Sat 03-Nov-12 17:49:27

There's someone at work who signs her name 'Deb's'.

TaggieCampbellBlack Sat 03-Nov-12 17:50:26

It was the only enjoyable part of the most awful shoe's shopping expedition.

The worst i have seen is

Don't regret the things you have done, regret the things you have'nt.

On a friendstattoo shock

TaggieCampbellBlack Sat 03-Nov-12 17:54:21

There was a tea shop in our town centre which had "tea's" and "coffee's" expensively etched into its windows (it's window's?). Made me chuckle whenever I walked past.

YABU for not returning with a huge red pen

Sparklingbrook Sat 03-Nov-12 17:58:38

shock I would have had to come home and have a lie down. Did you stay and purchase any of the said item's Taggie. how are you feeling now? sad

Dunelm Mill had Bath Mat's and I had to leave the shop.

I get annoyed with the chain Jimmy Spices. They can't seem to decide whether the restaurant belongs to a chap called Jimmy Spice, or whether their spices are all jimmy.

They have it written both with and without an apostrophe in the SAME bit of advertising! ARGH!

The idea of the restaurant sounds so nice as well but I just can't trust myself to go and not have a rant at the staff about their company's lack of proofreaders and end up looking like a tit blush

iwastooearlytobeayummymummy Sat 03-Nov-12 17:59:00

someone at work proudly showed off their new tatoo

Its only money.

I couldn't bring myself to point out the mistake!

Happily, Bertie, "Jimmy Spices / Spice's" is now called "Jimmy's World Grill". Much better!

Some people seem to live by the philosophy that if in any doubt they should put one in, it can't do any harm.

Well it harms my bloody brain. It. Actually. Hurts.

THANK YOU for this! I refuse to eat in restaurants, or go into shops or whatever, if they have this kind of crap up. My husband thinks I'm a grumpy cow but I get a bit of a kick out of it!

BertieBotts Sat 03-Nov-12 18:03:44

Is it? I've just googled them and they appear to still be Jimmy Spices. They've changed the logo and lost the randomly appearing apostrophes, though.

Their old rage-inducing logo is still visible in the bottom left, though!

Sign near us - jam's and chutney's for sale. Makes me want to creep back after dark with a big bottle of tippex (can you still get that stuff?) grin
