Idiots and Attention to Detail...

We saw this dumbass sign posted at the cash desk when we were buying a new BBQ last week...

Really, people, you want our attention and cannot spell "attention"? Morons...

You have to give them some what credit. Even though they ride that little short yeallow bus; they tried their best. What kind of grill did you buy?

That's like the moron sign I saw last week that said WE PANT. Not so funny that it was on a school fence.

Spelling mistakes are the bane of my existence. There's a store here with 'Collectibles' in the title except it's spelled 'Collectables'. No! You own a business! At least spell the store name correctly! GAAAHHHH. Okay, I'm good now.

Brenda Dumont said...

Never mind the spelling - anything signed 'Management' is so cold and non 'social' as is the concept that you need ID to return a purchase. This subtly infers that you may be returning something you didn't buy. Everyone in Retail knows this happens, but display it on a sign for the honest folks? Altogether dumbass I'd say!

Dont yew gust hate thaat?

Lauren said...

Maybe it was just one of those days... If the sign is still there though, that would irk me. IS IT STILL THERE?

Mike said...

These signs at stores (and bakeries and coffee shops and gas stations, etc.) are out of control. I think too many people with easy access to poster board and colorful markers like to make rules for others to follow. TOO MANY RULES!!!

Brahm (alfred lives here) said...

Ooh, Lauren, good question - don't know if is still there. Am curious now!

And I totally agree with Brenda - just signing it MANAGEMENT is dufus level!

Ya gotta wonder, don't you? I mean, someone was actually paid to create that sign. And he probably even has a supervisor who approved it.

It's damn scary out there.

You were at Wal-Mart weren't you? ;)

Meri said...

That kind of mess-up drives me nuts, so there are plenty of opportunities in this life for moments of craziness.

Ray, it is a Cuisinart C782IRS Infrared Gourmet Barbecue, bought from Canadian Tire. Lauren, Brahm says the sign is no longer posted at the store; it has been removed and not replaced.

Brahm (alfred lives here) said...

Yep, it was at Canadian Tire here in Edmonton and the sign is now gone - we were there again today tossing our money in their general direction. Maybe the can use it for a staff literacy program? Ooh, even I think that was bitchy.

The bbq we got is like a Cuisinart spaceship - big and silver and sleek. Is very purdy...

However, if you stop and think about it, the sign did get your attention.
