"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."

I am going also miss you

Rimpy Jr. sent me this via cell phone. I think this one is interesting because when people make a to/too mistake, it almost always seems to be writing "to" when they meant "too", rather than the other way around.

It often happens that people who do business as purveyors of the printed word are not really qualified for the post, as evidenced by engraver Moore here, and the person who made this sign for him or her. The former did not catch the mistake (or care), and the latter just plain made the mistake.

I'm willing to bet that if I paid a visit to Moore's establishment, I would find other mistakes of this nature in the samples of their work. I did once visit a similar business here in College Town, and I was astounded by the number of errors in their signs. Errors that should have been eliminated by paying attention in grade school. That was long before I started this blog, and I've toyed with the idea of going back there and sneaking a few pics. You'll be the first to know if I do.
