Pedantic? Probably19 March 2015
It’s not easy being me. I find myself reading (and finding fault with) practically every sign I come across.
Today I saw this one in a shoe repairer/key cutter shop.
“Lost your keys? Get a spare set of keys cut here today”.
Firstly if you’ve lost your keys, how can you get another set cut? And secondly, if you DO manage to get another set, it wouldn’t be a ‘spare’ set. It would be THE set.
If it were my shop, I’d have introduced the fear factor. “How would you cope if you lost your keys? Get a spare set cut here today”.
I know I’m a bit of a pedant. Humour me.
