A New Feature At The Dept. Of Nance: They're Out There And They Voted
Oh, Happy New Year 2017, Everyone! I know that it is too much to ask that we all Get On The Same Page and call it Two Thousand Seventeen, which is my preference; that so many of you will persist in calling it the flip and casual sounding Twenty Seventeen. I can live with that, I suppose, by discreetly sighing to myself and wishing it Were Not So.
Along with...Other Things.
But we must On to the Point Of This Post.
I was minding my own business in Home Depot (there as Rick's consultant) when I was brutally assaulted by the sign above. Mind you, this was an Official Sign, large and placed there for customers. It was prominently placed on an end cap in the main aisle.
Underneath it was the merchandise for sale that it purported to advertise. Both of which probably contained labels with the words properly spelled. (Not unlike this sign; remember?) The sign maker probably couldn't be bothered to/didn't feel like looking at the labels on the stuff. He or she probably had a cell phone but didn't think to ask Siri or Google how to spell the words. After all, it's just work and no big deal. It wasn't like it was the Most Important Thing In His Life.
And, if it's wrong, Somebody Else Will Fix It.
Besides, a lot of people said it was perfectly fine.
Oh, 2017. I feel as if I have seen you before. Dearest Readers, join me once again in keeping The Stupid (and Lazy) at bay. Promise me that you will strive for Personal Brilliance every single day.
