A modest Mike Houghton
doesn't want to take credit for having discovered this lowercase L in Seth Godin's blog
. Now, Michael, Seth Godin may be a best-selling author
, but it was you who recognized this All SAlES gem, and in my book, that makes YOU the boss
Gotta give the writer props, though. He spelled "you're" correctly. That seems to be pretty unusual.
Ha, your blog is funny. I never knew it was such an issue, now I'll be looking at signs all the time.. As I'm double and triple checking my comment so that I don't screw it up...
Despite the use of the uppercase L in "mail", the signmaker used a lowercase i. interesting choice....
Like John, I noticed the lowercase i right from the start. I have been a "victim" of uppercase L/lowercase i combination my entire life. Being a teacher, it disturbs me to watch my young students make these upper/lower errors. :) Most common error for the children is entering the letter of their first name as a capital in EVERY word they write. James uses a capital J EVERY time. Bobby uses a capital B... etc.
All of my old picture books have my name in them - I must have been 4 years old when I started writing my name:
This was actually a progression from the former:
A7I (I not only inserted uppercase L but it was upside down AND backward)
Family, friends, and colleagues continually spell my name ALi. I cringe. My Grandma actually writes it in cursive - ali
Sincerely enjoying your blog,
No joke? I can return my lip balm by mail? That's customer service!
