This is irony - two years ago I subscribed to Las Vegas hotel “e”-newsletters; we went there for a wedding and got super deals. I never unsubscribed because I wanna go back someday. Today I received this email from Vdara - they have some “Decemeber” deals on suites. TOO MANY Es, VDARA.
Look - I’m not perfect. I would never profess to be without fault. But I know how apostrophes work. I know what they represent. I know the difference between “guys” (more than one guy) and “guy’s” (the #10 jersey and equipment belonging to Monsieur Lafleur).
So try a bit harder. I know a decent copy editor who can help, if you’re hiring.
Above the door of the “Resource Room” in my daughter’s school. I know a teacher wasn’t responsible for the sign; I am surprised it hasn’t been changed. If the spelling was correct, this room could have SO MANY PURPOSES. There are mutliple possibilities!
We can’t figure out if the sign company MEANT to misspell “courtesy” (since no one would really talk about the sign unless they noticed the error) - or, if it was purely unintentional. I’m gonna guess the latter, and have the ‘courtsey’ to consider the competition.
First of all: that’s not a toilet. Nor is it a garbage can.
Second: there’s a screen covering the drain. Ain’t nothing gonna get flushed past that screen.
Third: because of said screen, someone’s gotta pick that out of there. With their hands. You knew that when you did it, right?
But you didn’t care. You’re a loner and a rebel - who needs garbage cans and flushable toilets? You’ve got a urinal, and you’re gonna throw some paper in there like a big man, and someone else can pick it out WITH THEIR HANDS.
I wish I was the washroom permit fairy and doled out the permits for the washroom because yours, my friend, would be irrevocably revoked.
Artistic graffiti is one thing — kids with spray paint is another thing entirely. Not happy about the amount of salt on their fries from the Charlottetown WalMart, someone had something intelligent to say on the back door of the restaurant. @joshcoles tells me it’s a reference to an unfortunate sufferer of Tourette’s Syndrome who starred in a bunch of YouTube videos.
