Have you ever noticed how often people misuse italics, bold, underlining, or quotation marks in signs?
Like a sign in the hospital that said:
This floor is under video surveillance.
What exactly does that mean? Is it literally under? Why is this word emphasized??
Or how about the sign on a drinking fountain that says:
Out of Order. Needs to be "fixed."
What? To me that implies a spay or neuter. Which is really weird on a drinking fountain, PS.
Have you ever noticed this before? If you haven't, I can guarantee you will now.
