FOODIE FRIDAY for September 11, 2009

A few days ago, my co-worker Amy and I went to the Borders near our office. While Amy was at the cafe counter ordering a drink, I spotted the following sign...



They must be running a new promotion--with every Seattle's Best Coffee drink you buy, you get a shot of Seattle's Best Misspelling, absolutely free! (Still no lids for those drinks, though. Sorry! Take care to not let the misspellings spill out the sides of your cups...)

Special thanks to Amy for keeping the barista occupied while I surreptitiously snapped this picture!

To be fair, in this digital age, I'm far more forgiving of hand-written signs, especially for more "complicated" words like "inconvenience" ("complicated" being a relative term; compare this to other Foodie Friday items, like "goes," "tater," "dinner," or "free"). For things written on a computer, there's no excuse for not doing a spell-check.

...that said, it's still pretty damn funny. ;)

EVula, you are a nicer person than I am! :) I may have been slightly more forgiving (or maybe not, because I'm kind of evil and snarky) about this error except that I saw it on TWO separate hand-written signs.

I'm forever getting that one spelled wrong. All praise spell-check.

I promise I won't red pen ya for it if I ever see you make that mistake! :)
