You mean like a sign in Food Lion (yes! let's name names!!!) saying
"Banana's 58¢/lb."?

Yes, yes yes!!! Like the very elegant restaurant in Charleston with a beautifully lettered chalkboard out front advertising "Our Dinner Special's"

And the manicure place down the street from me with a huge sign across the facade, "BEST NAIL'S"

And the medical clinic a few blocks away that claims, "Walk-in's Welcome"


Signs are expensive. Is it too much to ask that professional sign makers be educated enough in basic English to save their customers from looking like idiots?

I blame computers for the Apostrophe Catastrophe. Way too many folks depend on spell check instead of common sense (cents). No software program can read your mind! Do you mean cent or scent? There, their or they're?

Boy is it fun to rant :-)
