Attention To Detail  | e-mail post

Certainly misspellings are hardly rare. We see them all the time. I am often surprised how often I see misspellings in books, especially given my personal experience with the amount of proofreading that goes into a book produced by a major publisher (sometime I might write about my experience having my editor thoroughly explain the difference between "which" and "that," a source of innumerable edits in a manuscript from years back.) In any event, this sign has been up for a few weeks not far from where I live. I finally took a picture of it. I guess we can be happy the company paints cars, not signs, but didn't anybody catch the misspelling of estimate? I don't need a paint job for my car anyway, but I don't know how inclined I would be to go somewhere that doesn't even seem interested in correcting their mistake.

Ask about their sign painting work
