and also a shock multiple posting!!!!!!

did it in AIBU but thought you lot might appreciate it grin

A high street shop.

On the big front sign thingy over the window.

Sweet Melody's

That was the shop's name.

Am I wrong and unreasonable to find this a shocker?

Maybe Melody is the shop keeper's name?

as in Sweet Melody's shop?

Or just wrong? DH says it's only people like me that would notice.

Is it a music shop?

It's very wrong, and I can see why you find this both shocking and unreasonable.

I would've given them the benefit of the doubt and assumed it was the owner's name. After a hmm of course

I would hazard a guess that since it's not a music shop (and not selling "melodies") that it is the owner's name. It's a very strange name for a tourist shop if it's not her name.

I would wince too. I do so regularly when passing a hair salon near here called Posh Totty's

Just typing it makes my head feel fuzzy grin
