Exploring and Encouraging a Healthy Life Marked with Joy

Last Nerve

I saw this sign at the Savannah Amtrak Station on Sunday afternoon.  (I wanted to see what the train station looked like since I have never really ridden on a passenger train, but hope to do so soon.  Is that TMI?)

Anyway the sign got on my Last Nerve (sort of like the really sad-eyed, post-Katie pictures of Tom Cruise which are currently on every magazine cover at the Walmart checkout aisle).  Per the irritating sign below, I wish I had followed the pertinent advice of Englander Lynn Truss, who, in her lovely punctuation diatribe Eats, Shoots and Leaves, suggests carrying a bucket of paint whenever you leave the house in order to correct errors of punctuation that really get to you.

Does this bother you At All?  Or am I going to have to add Yet Another Talking Point to my therapist schedule?

THE TAXI’S WHAT???  FRESHLY WASHED BODY???  FLAT TIRE???  HAIR LOSS MIRACLE TREATMENT AD ON THE SIDE DOORS???  HELP ME UNDERSTAND THIS!

Thank you for your time.

      Punctuation mistakes don’t bother me as much as spelling… “Taxiz,” anyone? But yes, it is a little maddening. Perhaps they are just hoping for the day that one of us climbs up there, wielding a justified paintbrush. Goodness knows I’d love to see that.
