Fewer Leters

Sacramento vulture Cori sent in this gas station blunder:

It's a wonder they got "assistance" right!

Ain't technology great?

You don't even have to walk to the front of the supermarket anymore. As long as you're not using a gift card, you can complete your transaction right there in the aisle!

Unsafe Vulture

I don't know where poor vulture LizyPo found this unfortunate request...

...but I fear for her safety.

I am reminded of Boston's great fire at the Cocoanut Grove nightclub. From the always-reliable Wikipedia:

"As is common in panic situations, many patrons attempted to exit through the main entrance, the same way they had come in. However, the building's main entrance was a single revolving door, immediately rendered useless as the panicked crowd scrambled for safety. Bodies piled up behind both sides of the revolving door, jamming it to the extent that firefighters had to dismantle it in order to get inside."

I think I'd like to jam this sign's creator into a revolving door and spin it around a few times.

The Very Best Western

While stopping over at a Best Western in Oregon, vulture Noelle captured the following example of outstanding customer service:

"Apparently, there is only ever one guest taken into consideration at the Best Western. " Here's hoping Noelle was that night's lucky guest!

Totoataly wild!

Philadelphia scenester/vulture Carolynn sent in this horrific posting from a local venue:

Wow. Old scholl? Rhmixes? Not altogether surprising, when you consider this blurb from their website: The Khyber is opened upstairs every night of the week and FREE. $1 PBR & $1 High Life every night till 11pm upstairs. Sundays has $10 OPEN BAR.

Au revoir, English language.

Dear Firewise Communities and Forest Service,

Your ad space (taken from the back pages of this week's Entertainment Weekly) might just be more effective if you didn't make up words!
