I went to college in Provo and I have to say that one of my biggest issues was listening to the outpouring of poor grammar, coming especially from native Utahns. It was everywhere, like a bad plague. My ears are permanently scarred.
They tried so hard!
They got the right “you’re/your”–their signmaker just put it i the wrong spot.
Looks like that’s somewhat permanent. Seems like something hard to fix.
Wonder how many other locations have the same sign.
