27 Reasons Why You Should Always Proofread

I should be the last person to complain about proofreading. Even though I do proofread, I miss typos at an alarming rate. Then again, you don't know how many times I've inserted a typo just to get a comment.

However, when your sign specifically brags about attention to detail, you'd better look it over. This one contains both a typo and a grammar error. So was it a drunk sign painter or a very good Photoshop? It's my favorite picture out of Buzzfeed's list of 27 Reasons Why You Should Always Proofread. I also like Mom's response to a knock knock joke.

Thanks! :) The sign is definitely real. I made a special 10-minute backtrack after my interview to take pics of it (and to make sure I wasn't dreaming!)

I run Poorly Proofed CA - which originally stood for "California" (where I used to live) and now for "Canada" (where I currently live) - and this photo is one of my favo(u)rites as well. I did a Scooby-Doo-esque triple take when I saw the sign, especially since I was on my way to an interview for a proofreader position! :)
