banging my head on a brick wall............

Am not a fully paid up member of pedants' corner, but my local hair salon has a fire notice which used to read
"Encase of fire........." - told them that it should be in case, two separate words. It now reads
"En case of fire......"

I also saw some current buns for sale on the market, presumably that means they were not out of date yet?!

I wish I was joking!

Also, it would be; "banging my head against a wall."

encase or en case is suitably continental sounding for a hair salon though !

there is a hairdresser's in hornsea called 'X's salon de haute coiffure'. i always imagine all these ladies coming out with great big beehives...

LOL at en case!

There's a salon near me called 'Pastiche' which always makes me laugh.

Do they imitate - perhaps with satirical intent - the work of other salons? Or do they produce an incongruous mix of different styles on the heads of their customers?

The mind boggles.

Lol at 'Pastiche'

Perhaps they meant to say Panache??
