Offending your readers is a way of getting them to pay attention. But make sure you are offending on purpose, with purpose, and not inadvertently. For instance, this grocery store chain should offer menstruating, irrational, hormonal women REAL chocolate for free, not some pseudo-healthy, overpriced imposter. Angry and offended bleeders will tear down the store searching for a chocolate in a shiny foil wrapper that has adorable advice and a pep talk printed on the inside. Also, raspberry was a poor choice for the featured package, right?
The painful abuse of the apostrophe knows no bounds. FYI, There are about 45 Randalls stores in Texas and each has many of these signs displayed. Also, why Doesn't Randalls have an apostrophe before the S?
Saw this sign today and was initially excited by the possibility of a Complete Cookie. And then was deflated to see that "complete" was actually defined by all the things that this cookie is not. I support a vegan, possibly joyless cookie, sure, but this is a tragic misuse of a description. Maybe call it an incomplete cookie...or a cracker with date juice. But don't mislead your reader, you'll only cause resentment and maybe even sorrow. Or hanger.
These are my dad's teeth. They are not a matched set. The upper and lower, while not originally matched, have made it work through a lot of tough situations, like the trash can, the washing machine, and under the bed. There's a travelogue post coming soon from these two dingy optimists!
