New Yorkers May Not Be Able To Spell, But We All Agree Regarding Boston Sports Bars

September 12, 2011

Seen on a recently closed Boston sports bar located about three blocks from my apartment:

Good by and good ridance
Glad your gone

While I agree with the sentiment, I just wish whoever wrote it could spell.

When I walk by it almost every morning, I get a little embarrassed, and my OCD makes me twitch and begs me to stop and correct them. However, I know that as soon as I whip out a Sharpie and begin the correction I’d hear the “bwoop bwoop” from an NYPD cruiser, and then I’d have to explain/convince them that I was just correcting a fellow Yankees’ or Jets’ fan’s horrible spelling. They’d probably let me off with a warning out of loyalty to the teams or, more likely, because they’d think I was crazy.

I can’t be the only one who really wants to correct them, can I?
