Spelling it out

So call me anal but I was bothered this morning by the specials board at a nearby café. Among the offerings today are:

  • Brocoli and cauliflower soup
  • Gujons with tarter sauce
  • Panninis
  • Sandwichs

When I noticed this litany of errors, it rather put me off my scone and cappuccino. If they don’t care enough to spell things properly, why should I think they care enough to prepare my food properly? Misspelled menus are one of my great bugbears when it comes to eating out. And yes, I know I should probably calm down and get a life but it’s just so ANNOYING.
