…over the summer while wandering Fremont Street in Las Vegas. Interesting that they are not offering “Tee Shirt’s” as well–usually these things show up in pairs.

"Tee" shirts is the one that really bothers me. I know it's become an accepted term but the name is due to the fact that the shirt is shaped like the letter T, it's not a word, "Tee"
Other things that bother me"Dee" ring"Wye" valve"Tee" fittingAll of these are named after a letter they are shaped like, therefor making the phonetic spelling of the word unnecessary but confusing as well.
Apparently this establishment is owned by someone named "Souvenir"…
What gets me is, they have "souvenir's" and then "tee shirts". As in, 'shirts' with no apostrophe. There's just no excuse for that.
No consistency…no checking BEFORE signs are made…no-one at the sign makers checking whether it's right or wrong? Shameful!
Oops, I think there should have been an apostrophe in maker's. I'm not perfect!
I took the very same photo in Vegas last summer. They know their sign is wrong, but, SURPRISE! They don't seem too worried by it.
