Speaking of typos, an awful error befell a North Carolina school district:
A road contractor hired to paint the word “school” on a freshly paved stretch of road near Southern Guilford High School in North Carolina rendered the traffic area in question a “shcool” zone.
They’ve apparently fixed it now, but trust me, we “typo hunters” can count on more errors to come. That’s the way of things.
Several years ago, my mom upset the City of Bushnell by telling officials that the new signs — posted all over town — should read, “Smile, You’re on Radar” (instead of “Smile, Your on Radar”).
Spend those few extra bucks hiring a proofreader, folks. Trust me, we’d love the extra income.
