Good grammar is "appreciate," too...


I got quite a chuckle out of this picture, which came from PAT (who found it on SARAH's Facebook page). I'm not sure which is more amusing: the random quotation marks, the lack of agreement, or the smiley and frowny faces with which someone decorated this tip cup.

PAT says, I've got a tip for whoever wrote that: Learn English.

Clearly, the person who wrote this isn't cut out to be a grammarian, but it looks like he or she could have a fabulous career in...emoticons? I dunno. I'm reaching here...

Thanks to PAT for spotting this one!

Jageshemash peoples of minor nation US and A! This a sign my sister wrote for make personal benefit. Why should customer not tip prostitute after make romance explosion insides her? In Khazakstan, is customary to tip 8.5% to prostitute (9.9% to horse). Meddling neighbor Nursultan Tuyakbay only tip 6.4%...he cannot afford. Great Success!

The author of that sign probably spends a lot of time 'conversating' with their customers.

@ Borat: Maybe if she'd drawn a few more smiley faces on the cup, she'd get a better tip than being told to learn English. :)

@ David: Hahaha! You are probably right about that!
