I know this is just a silly post, but had to share this fun picture from our vacation. This sign was sitting on a table at a coffee shop that we stopped at in hopes of getting internet service.


Amazing how misplacing a few vowels can make all the difference in the world, isn’t it?

  1. Just yesterday I had a typo involving a single little “r” which turned “we’ve got you covered” into “we’ve got your covered”… which made it look like I’d left out a word rather than adding a single letter.

    Yeah. Thankfully someone pointed that out and I was able to fix it fairly quickly [smile].


  2. Now that is both sad and funny at the same time!

  3. That is AWESOME! I read a story one time of someone who tried to spend a $2 and the store wouldn’t take it because it’s not real.

  4. Jolanthe,

    I sent a text the other day and one of the words – a three letter word – had two letters reversed which totally changed the original message. Fortunately, it was to my husband so it was easily corrected. I wonder if they changed the sign.

  5. Too funny! While it’s certainly sad to see a mistake like that (seriously…how many people did that go through before it was finally setting on a table? No one caught it or questioned it, lol?!), it still makes me giggle. :) Thanks for sharing!

    Mom to a 6 year old boy who would rather eat brussel sprouts (Ack!) and take a bath (Gasp!), than do homeschool spelling.

  6. Hey, how do you know there wasn’t a movie being filmed nearby, or a theatre group taking a break, and the table really WAS reserved for the costumers??? ;-)))

    • pretty sure it was a spelling error they had no idea about, since it was
      at a coffee shop in Mexico. Although there were some guys in dressed up
      in Mayan costumes around the corner… :)

  7. hehe that is a riot!!

  8. LOL!

  9. That truly hurts the brain..lol!

  10. =p I’m sure they’re all over the place. http://funnycrave.com/25-hilariously-misspelled-signs/19128/ We have a spelling mistake on a sign in our library parking lot.

  11. I love picturing a place where only costumers are allowed. Ha!
