I'm a bit embarrassed I had to read the sign twice to get what you're embarrassed about.

It's more embarrassing when it happens under the banner of patriotism: http://cakewrecks.blogspot.com/2011/02/oh-so-thats-why-theres-no-mail.html

I dare you to read through those bakery signs and not cringe (or maybe plan a move to Canada)

And I want to know why the occupancy levels are always weird numbers. Why 163? Why not 160 or 165? IT'S MADNESS, I SAY. MADNESS!!!!!

It's terrible when people break occupany laws. ;p

Thanks, Emy – I took another look and even then had to read it twice more.

Then I looked up occupany, just to be sure it wasn't some sort of weird octopus cult thing, but nope, it’s what it’s supposed to mean. And there's 129,000 results.

Ahem...

That would be because there's safety in numbers.

Need more people - stat!

;-P

Clearly the Department of Buildings needs a copy editor.

I think the sign was over occupanied, so they just had to cut a few corners. All good.

How can it be dangerous AND unlawful at the same time? I though that was Occlumency.

yeah, saw the strange morphing of two words...but who's the little lady? And why she dangling?

Mary Vaughn said...

It's so difficult to head count when you near the total *occupany* mark. sigh

Jen Daiker said...

Bahahaha. Mixed with your embarassment and everyone's views I am laughing to the point of tears.

Excellent for a Tuesday.

Mia Hayson said...

Hahaaa.

I want to meet the 164th person. They must be a HOOT if a little unlawful.

Ha ha ha! That's a pretty glaring typo!

What is Occupany? It sounds dirty.
