Zero tolerance in sign manufacturing

Sometimes, the main hurdle is simply figuring out what you don’t know and then asking someone else about it!


1.  Someone who designs and manufactures permanent signs ought to know how to punctuate, or at least ought to know when to ask a co-worker a question.

2.  Someone who works in a public relations department — designing and producing publications, no less — ought to know how to copy & paste text into a new format.  (Receiving large amounts of copy from others, and then retyping said text, is silly.)

3.  [An additional item here would have been nice, completing this post with a sort of triunity.  But I’ll leave it here, ’cause I got nuthin’ else today.]

With Lynne Truss, author of Eats, Shoots & Leaves:  The Zero Tolerance Approach to Punctuation, “I am very much in favour of forming an army of well-informed punctuation vigilantes.”

Try here for another rant, served with rutabaga, including pokes and jabs at other signs.

    It’s an all too common mistake.
