What's wrong with this picture?
I passed by the Lyndale Grill & Grocery the other day and noticed their new sign:
Now, I'm not a great speller, but even I noticed that the word "Medeterenian" seemed a little off. Actually, it was three letters off of "Mediterranean" so I called the store to let them know. The conversation went something like this.
Me: Hi, I'm just calling to let you know that I noticed a word on your sign was misspelled? Employee: Yeah? Me: Yeah, the word Mediterranean. Employee: Well, [the owner's] friend made it. Me: I didn't know if you realized it and just thought you might want to change it. Employee: Well, I can tell him, but he's not going to change it.
I'd recommend he reconsider: Not bothering to spell-check a sign, or then to fix an error, makes me wonder what other corners these guys are cutting? Though I think the flaming font and the tacky clip art alone qualify it for a redo...
