Unbelievable – typo extraordinaire
I’m often guilty of typos, I know. Even though I’ve only just started writing this, I imagine that it will have the occasional typo. But that’s different to being unable to spell at all – or not being able to spot words that are spelled incorrectly. Even though they (or ‘it’, in this case) is on public display. I mean, why on earth …?
Before we go any further, I am going to show you what we saw, photographed and tweeted earlier today. Here goes
You know how to spell ‘wildlife’, don’t you? Well, evidently the person who designed this vehicle wrap doesn’t. Nor does the company that prints the wrap. The people who install it? Nope. What about the people who see this bus every day? The person who drives it; the person who cleans it? How many people have seen this and either ignored it (although I can’t see why they would) or missed it altogether. Isn’t that a little weird?
OK, I know that a bus driver’s job isn’t to proof a bus. (And ‘proofing a bus’ is a strange enough concept in itself). Nor is is the cleaner’s job. Or anyone’s really – apart from the originators, the printers and the installers of course…
So, as I said, I found this unbelievable. I really HAD to send it to Twitter. The account I sent it to has plenty of followers and within a short period of time had over eighty views on Twitpic. I kept an eye on my Tweetdeck, as I always do and waited … and waited … and waited …
Nope. After 45 minutes I sent another tweet asking if anyone had, um, noticed anything unusual about the last photograph I had posted. There was one response.
