I spotted this sign at an eatery near my office earlier this week. I desperately wanted to say something like, "Wow, I'm glad to hear the Husky Card reader is working well today. I'd hate to think it was working sorry in the middle of your lunch rush." However, I refrained. The employees were busy, and I didn't want the long line of customers behind me to be delayed in getting their burritos by my pedantry.

Yes, I'm one of those people. I'm a grammar pedant, particular about punctuation, careful with capitalization. I'm fully aware that this means there will be at least one embarrassing typo somewhere in The Sergeant's Lady that neither I, my editor, nor my copy editor will catch. Karma is rarely kind to the snarky.
