My workplace has started getting fruit boxes in for us, which is awesome.
They happily announced this starting with an Employee Communication whimsically titled “We’ve Gone Banana’s!”
Ok, now I am painfully aware that I tend to spell poorly, so I rarely criticise when the thing that I do tend to notice - incorrect apostrophes - comes up - but the thing with this is that the headlines of the most recent 20 or so Employee Communications like this appear on the main intranet page - which I see many times each day. And with that there, every time I do, my eye can’t help but jump to it while my brain goes “Who is Banana?”, “Banana’s WHAT?”, and “How can the words ‘We’ve gone’ possibly fit into that sentence?” - all at once. It sort of hurts.
So, despite myself, I sent then an email begging them to change it.
I hope they do.
It’s driving me’s pear.
So, I got on a bus this morning, and I realised that: a) every one of the double seats had exactly one person on it; and b) both of the sets of sideways-facing triple seat sets had exactly 2 people on it, one at each end; and c) the rear bench had exactly 3 people on it - one at each end, and one in the middle.
So, overall, since everyone has some dislike of siting close to strangers, this bus was perfect.
Until I got on. :/
