  3. Personally, I would have someone else proofread my sign before I slapped it up on a bus. Also, if one little circle (to change the punctuation from a comma to a semicolon) was all it took to make the sign grammatically correct, wouldn't it be pretty easy to fix?

    Just sayin'.

  4. Exactly. What's ironic is when things like this show up on signs for people who are running for a position with the school board or when the sign is advertising their "attention to detail." True story from several years ago in West Jordan.

  5. Sigh. I've been told there are more gramatically correct parts of the country, but I've never lived in one.
