These Item’s Are Sold By Weight (and perhaps the sign-maker’s are paid by character)

This sign was in the salad bar at the hospital where I gave birth to my daughter. She was in the NICU for three weeks, so I had to see this atrocity every. single. DAY. (Note: there were TWO of these signs, each with the same mistake on a teeny little salad bar.) I would just love to know how many people read this before publishing it and didn’t notice the error (especially in the sign department).

Also, please forgive the slight bluriness of the photo. I was in a wheelchair and my husband, who was pushing me, was appalled at my behavior and didn’t want to slow down so I could get a better shot.

    Sign-makers paid by character? So they get paid more for Upper Case Letters? Whatever possesses people to think that the use of upper case makes words appear more important?
