"I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for approval, I can tell you I don't have any. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills -- skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you leave my language alone right now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will punctuate you."

At first I was reluctant to pick on this sign. After all, there is a good chance that English is not the first language of the proprietors of this store. But then I saw the other side of the sign:

It's spelled correctly here. So who or what is to blame - shaky command of the language, or a careless sign maker? My money is on the latter.
