How Did This Person Get Into College?

Angela spotted this sign on the front doors of her on-campus apartment building:


The sign features an apostrophe catastrophe and a misspelling! I'd be embarrassed if the person who wrote were my classmate. Maybe s/he cheated on the SATs. It reminds me of when I overheard a guy in my sophomore year dorm call sangria "a Spanish connotation," and I asked him, "Do you go here?" I was very disappointed when he said he did.

Thanks, Angela!

They also can't seem to find the question mark key or the caps lock.

I love these signs, I almost want to call the numbers and gripe.

oh good GOD, that's dreadful. wow. i've seen "you're" spelled a LOT of different ways... but this is a new one!

WOW, this may be the worst I've seen yet on this site. I'm pretty sure they meant "lose" and not "Loose" also. Again, WOW.

Don't forget the forgotten question mark!

Becky said...

That's a good point, Putu! The comma should probably be a question mark.

Maybe I should tighten up my MP3 Player so I don't loose it again. And why are they shouting at me to describe it?
