I guess the sign writer figured that if you don’t know where to put the apostrophe, it would be better to leave it out. He (or she) got it right in the small print, though.

I’ve driven past this sign on the Long Island Expressway’s service road in Queens for years now and the only change has been the cost. There are at least three awesome things about the sign:

2) The missing apostrophe in the contraction of “we are” changing it to the past tense state-of-being verb “were”
3) The hilarity of the sign even if it was grammatically correct
I have to look at this every day as I enter my office. UGH!

This sign is for a Ladie’s bathroom in a gas station near Grand Isle, Louisiana. Taken in 2012. Love that Ladie has her own room there!
