Going Through A Bad Spell


The curse of signs with spelling mistakes has struck yet again in Worcester Park - just days after council contractors put their foot in it with this road sign howler, the newly refitted Waitrose has been spotted promoting its range of 'deordorants'.

Enraged Waitrose regular Miss Pelling of Linewood Drive told the Worcester Park Blog:

"I fined it completely unacceptable that Waitrose don't spell check their signs. I will not be shipping their again."

Pot calling the kettle black? You don't "fined" it, you "find" it. And as far as I'm aware, you can't ship in waitrose. And it's "there" and not "their".

I mean seriously is waitrose gonna worry over your lack of custom? I very much doubt it!

WOW.

I didn't know so many people could be so stupid in such a short space of time. Incredible.

To not get the intentional spelling mistakes nor the whole mis-pelling thing (it hurts to even have to mention it so clearly, in case the same numbnuts are reading this post). Truly, I'm crying for you.

Do you think the Sure deodorant could get rid of the terrible smell of seaweed that sometimes hangs over Worthing on a stormy day?

I fear Rachel and Demolition Dave may never be heard of again :(

....or at least not under the same names, welcome to the anonymous dark side :)

Silly woman.

Haha brilliant! Maybe the people who didn't get the joke were of the sort who wrote the signs in the first place?

Derrick said...

HAHA. All this animosity toward "miss-pelling". It was joke!
Surely Waitrose is in the grocery industry not in the constructions industry. The "hired" contractors most likely do not all use english as a first language either.

Too much time on my hands said...

I like the helpful supermarket shelf tickets that let shoppers compare prices of similar products by calculating the price per standard quantity, e.g per 100g, per litre etc. Unfortunately the person who uses the calculator may have been moved to that task because they were unable to hold down a job where they have to spell deodorant, so there are often curious mistakes on show, such as a 26g pack of turmeric in Sainsbury's at 89p, which apparently equates to £34.23 per 10g.

OK - it's not that earth shattering, but it affords me a wry smile, and the smug satisfaction of knowing that 50% of the people I come into contact with are below average.
