Thwarted by ignorance


Can you believe it? They paid actual money to have the sign 'fixed'..I would fix it again but apparently I paid for the gramatically incorrect sign in the first place and then paid again to get it restored. I am shaking my head in disbelief, I live among idiots. It makes me want to stick a pin in someone's eye.

Come and join my pincushion swap - I know you want to :)

Not sure what I am on about? It is a point of grammar, see here

Yes, you have a 'sign language' problem!!

No wonder you want to stick a needle in their eye! Hey, isn't there a children's rhyme about that? Ouch!

grrrr! I don't think I could resist the urge to repaint Shannon. Maybe this time in RED :) So you "pay", we all do a little. The greater lesson for everyone who would see it is worth it.

Sorry but I had to chuckle. I can't believe they've "fixed" the sign though.
