Must Have Used the Same Sign Provider?

When you realize you are having problems with words like "clutches", maybe it would have been wise to consult a dictionary? Or, at least ask someone else to proofread this? Or perhaps look at the paperwork or boxes from the companies that send you "clutches"?

But hey, these folks fix clutches, they don't fix words. I'll promise to not fix any clutches if they promise to not take my job of being an editor/proofreader!

Why You Can't Depend on the Print Shop to Proofread Your Documents!

Sometimes you will see obvious indications that perhaps you should hire your own proofreader/editor to check your proofs (that's the reason why those things are called "proofs") before you give the go-ahead for your printer to run a few thousand of your corporate brochures.

Really... wouldn't you think SOMEONE would have noticed this? And if they had, don't you think it would have been wise to fix it? Are the owner and employees all sitting behind the order counter wondering why there's not much traffic to their store? Ah, the questions are endless.
