This Employee’s Only sign was spotted next to the kitchen door at the Holiday Inn Express near the Denver International Airport on February 11, 2018.
The last I heard, apostrophes shouldn’t be used to make a plural. I do believe, however, that a hyphen is called for in “walk-ins.” Lastly, isn’t “walk-ins accepted” a better way to say “walk-ins available?”
I spotted this sign as I was driving past a pub in my local town (Gorseinon in South Wales), and was speechless at how this slipped past both whoever commissioned and whoever made the sign.
I managed to time my next driveby in order to stop at the traffic lights and make my husband take a photo for posterity.
I think the sign speaks for itself.
I suppose that signs really do work. I drive by this sign shop every day and so far have resisted the temptation to vandalize their sign in the name of righteous punctuation.
What makes this particularly bad is the random use of apostrophes.
Let’s at least be consistent! (from Akron, PA)
Sign outside a gas station/mini mart.
Must be charlatans – real geeks would never make so many mistake’s.
I suppose I should forgive a gas station milkshake machine for its poor grammar.
