Outside a house advertising wares for sale:

it is a slight improvement on nestbox's, though, isn't it?

(actually, it would need an ' because there's a letter missing)

True nickelbang, at least no random apostrophe usage!

We have a coffee van on the main road near our house. The sign says -

Hot Coffee Next labye

It has been like that for months. Sigh.

Do you think it is small minded that this really, really grates on me, EVERY time I go by? (Proof reader by trade - I just can't help it)

nickelbang Wed 04-Nov-09 11:38:47

Thanks. I know it has been widely reported, but when I saw the words 'Damming Report' writ large on the screen on the BBC News last week, I felt like rolling over and sobbing quietly for a bit. Instead I just swore (but grammatically and in an appropriately spelled maner grin )

just making sure you were paying attention nickelbang. Changing subject slightly - on the weather forecast the other night "spits and spots of rain" wtf?

(Steps outside and wipes spittle from jacket)

Also changing subject a bit:

Dd came home with her painting, labelled by the teacher in BIG letters:

Seals in the sanctury

Dd swears it is right because Mrs Miggins says so (gah!)

DS brought a newsletter home from nursery the other week that had 17 spelling & grammatical errors

Soft play place last week had a sign in the car park:

'Softplay cannot except any responsibility for damage to customers vehicles while left in the car park'hmm

Ooh dear

17 is going some!

There is a nursery somewhere near us that has several cars, all liveried up with the work - kindergarton. If they were mine I would have refused to pay..

I predict that we will all have to either start taking valium, or risk keeling over with a stress-induced stroke grin

Many years ago, a sign with an arrow pointing towards a side-turn: SCHHOL
