Scene of the crime: Shoprite, Jersey City, NJ. Primary offense: sketchy spelling of “egg bagels.” Now with a name spelled like “Shoprite,” you might argue that they were just trying to make a statement with “bagles,” but for the inconsistency with the properly spelled “bagel” on the right. And consistency must be enforced. Secondary offense (this is harder; I suspected but had to look it up): “pumpernickel.”
And from Billerica, MA, proof that incorrect use of singulars and plurals can really grate on a person. “I have been looking at this sign for two or so years,” said submitter Lori. Yes, a food stamp is accepted. But only one.
