Does Anybody Care? (About spelling)

By Possum - 10 March 2009 83

Does anybody care if a sign is spelt incorrectly?

The agents for the units have responded to this, saying the sign will not be changed.

[ED – this sort of attention to detail really inspires confidence in the builders eh?]

What’s Your opinion?

Who can forget the story in The Canberra Times a few months ago where the word Gallipoli was spelt wrong in a headline (“Gallipolo”)?

That’s pretty funny. Not as good as Narooma’s sign that points the way to “Austalia Rock”, though!

The AMC had ‘Escape a Life SentANCE’ out the front for months.

It’s basically sign pollution. I object!!

The Gardens at Gowrie development used to be The Gardens at Fadden until somebody pointed out that being across the road from Fadden Pines wasn’t the same thing as being in the suburb.

Just as embarassing is the Oriental takeaway at Jamison which offers ‘Laska’ instead of Laksa

Pisses me off. I’d happily contribute $20 to a new sign.

Pfft.
Its Calwell.
Its not like they need to read in order to steal your car, or produce more bogans.

I care very much about both spelling and punctuation – where are the capital letters damnit?

If only they’d written:

six webber crescent

they could have pretended they were being all cool and designer.

I really can’t “C” what the problem is….

“The agents for the units have responded to this, saying the sign will not be changed.”

Even if (ahem) someone (ahem) “accidentally” splashed the sign with piant stripper as they were walking past?
