Example

When I write about work I try to limit it to the things I do to make my day more fun or bearable. I prefer to avoid talking about what other people say or do because putting it out there on the internet for all the world to see just isn't right. However what I saw on Friday was just too good not to share.

First lets start with a crude map I made of the back end of our store. This will help you see where everyone is located. As you may know (or not if you are newer here) I'm the baker so I'm in the combined area for the deli and bakery


This was taken standing at my work table looking over in to the deli side.

What is that on the table with the yellow note attached to it?

It reads "Help your selfs Happy Easter Deli E Meat rooms"
Now I'm not the brightest bulb in the box sometimes but I'm assuming that that should be selves not selfs and the E meant &. Not only does the spelling crack me up but that they felt the need to specify that the candy in the container was for the deli and meat room.

I think I'm going to bake some cupcakes and pass them out to EVERYONE

That is terrific. At least someone was trying their best to pass something out for Easter. Cupcakes sound like a great idea. Happy Easter to all.

I'm constantly suprised by spelling mistakes all over the place. Of course I realise that we have a lot of immigrants who own shops etc but even my kids often spell things wrongly.
Better just check this in case I've spelt anything wrong. ha ha

Easter elfs?!!!! Haha! 'Cracks' me up too but sometimes spelling mistakes on more public notices irritates me!
How nice of you to make cupcakes for everyone!

soooooooo did you get a piece of candy??? what would happen if someone not in the deli/meat ROOMS ate a piece? the spelling is now becoming par for the course any more.. I wonder if they even teach spelling now.. could it be the person who made the sign was suing auto correct??? do they have auto correct on plastic cups? I love the post.....

Not that I would defend this but an ampersand can look like an e, I would find one for you but I wouldn't be able to post it here anyway...as for the rest, well, nevermind LOL

Ha! That would be like us taking something to the mail room and not letting the press guys share it.

Spelling and punctuation are definitely on the decline, I blame texting! Hope everyone enjoyed the cupcakes :O) Deb xo
