It wasn't because I don't enjoy a good inspirational saying now and then, but I do ask that those sign people use the correct versions of their/they're/there, you're/your, and it's/its. Didn't anyone watch Schoolhouse Rock as a kid? It was all I could do to not whip out my magic Sharpie and correct each one by hand. That magic Sharpie lives in my purse and lies in wait at all times for just such grammar emergencies to occur. I was actually ready to pull it out when I noticed the laundry maven giving me the stink eye.
She was a big woman.
Sometimes, you just have to pick your battles.
I am not above making the occasional grammar mistake, but if you're going to post such things for lost and laundered souls to stare at in-between wash cycles, the sh*t had better be right.
End of rant.
I may pop in next week with trusty Sharpie for one last attempt to right this wrong. There's a slighter laundry maven who works Tuesdays. I think I could take her.
What I wouldn't do in the name of grammar, syntax, and the Queen's English. I am practically Professor Higgins.
Does anybody even know who Professor Higgins is anymore?
I am so old.
But I'm old with dry laundry. Woot-woot!

|Jack thought the laundromat was the neatest place in the world, and wondered why we didn't go there every day. I think he is going to love college.|
