Alert the grammar police!

My pet peeve rears its ugly head once again:


This wasn't some two-bit outfit, mind you, I found this gaffe on the web site of one of the top three U.S. office supply/electronics retailers, a big company that ought to know better. I admit that I may be a bit overly sensitive about this particular misconstruction, but it simply amazes me how frequently it shows up in public. Arrrgh!

    Come on, don't you become leery of having business dealings with companies that have typos? I know I do.

    Although one when I was a marketing director for a software company I ordered 25,000 mouse pads and it was 8 months before we realized they had misspelled the company name. Oops.

    hahahaha... supacoo, so very clever :)

    I hate when I find simple typos like that because you know there is an editor out there somewhere slackin' off at his desk. I make LOTS of typos, but I don't pay someone to check my grammer and spelling everytime I write something.
