Just paid for my parking and saw this 🙄😆

Erm...well I found it funny anyway.

I'd probably make all those corrections in my head, but not be inclined to actually mark someone's sign like a piece of homework.

You should stick a new piece of paper over it saying YOOOZ NEW POND CONS U NOBZ ARITE

Oh that's a special case of pedantry right there grin. I bet that person is an absolute joy to live with (I'm genuinely wondering if it's my MiL).

I like it grin

NurseButtercup Wed 18-Oct-17 12:56:26

That's funny grin

Brilliant!

Wish I could do that on social media posts! Just do it in my head instead.

I pointed out a misplaced apostrophe on someone's poster once. I felt like a right twat but she asked for it because she had shared a poster she'd made for a local gastro pub, using photos she'd taken and asked for feedback. I pointed out that Tuesdays and Wednesdays are plurals so don't need apostrophes and that if it was a poster advertising a business it really should be correct, especially as she was charging that business for her time and effort in making the poster. My comment was deleted.

Obviously a teacher!

One of my teachers at uni actively encouraged us to carry sharpies round for such things grin he corrected signs all over the city and signed them off...

A teacher (or a proofreader) would have a red pen at the ready! It could have been me (but wasn't). DS and I once took a red marker to correct a road sign.

Always correct poor spelling and grammar. It is how people learn. Innit.
