And check your spelling

Seen on a daytrip yesterday, the two faces of a church signboard:

 LIVE YOUR LIFE AS IF SOMEONE
IS WRITING A BOOK ABOUT YOU

    AUTOGRAPH YOUR WORK
         WITH EXCELLANCE

The irony of that sign reminds me of a notice that I once saw posted in a local convenience store. The store was seeking workers, but was seemingly trying to discourage Hispanics from applying.

"MUST HAVE," proclaimed the notice, "CORRECT ENGLISH SPELLING AND GRAMMER!"

Both important in writing good pros (a genuine misspelling I've seen in college writing).
