Spot the spelling error

- and note the government establishment it comes from - says a lot about the state of our education system in Australia - the sign had then been there for a while...

Hey - just want to say thanks, I so much appreciate your input and thoughts, you so much understand how I'm feeling. Your comments from afar do help:-)

Sign written by graduate from NSIDET.

Unfortunately for me those things pop right out and hit me over the head. Drive me nuts. I probably would have turned the I into an E with a sharpie.

Mom said...

Sling... i had a prize ready but stuffed it up while trying to upload it...am on a promise to come up with something one day...

Anne ...lost the prize...it was a great little video but the prize is that we all got through school when they taught even the lowest grades how to spell...

Middle Child said...

Andrew this sounds right but what is NSIDET??

Random thinker...I was too dulled down at the time was near Royal north Shore hospital and had other things on my mind...but lately this photo popped up...wonder if the sign is still there

Middle Child said...

Mom and cazzie no argurment from me... maybe they were using that dangerous phonetic spelling...

Sara said...

HAHAHAHA! At least they didn't put an apostrophe on "trespassers". That's a fairly typical mistake around here and it kind of makes my brain cry.

Hi Therese, not being a smartar$e but the council or whomever is actually correct.

'Inclosed' is ye olde worlde legalese; used in the wording of Acts etc:
