Construction Worker Corrects His Employer's Grammar
Noted in an office annex elevator.
So the company doing renovation in an office annex in Arlington, Virginia, put up a sign - which looks to be professionally printed - in the service elevator warning employees to turn off their cell phones or else have them confiscated. The warning is in Spanish, of course, that being the language of the construction trades in Arlington.
Some helpful construction guy evidently noticed the poor grammar of the warning and took it upon himself to give his bosses a free Spanish lesson. The top line he marked correcto, but he red-penciled the totally screwed-up bottom line ("si lo no hacen, sus telephonos seran confiscandos") and graded it muy mala. He even drew a little sad face next to the mala.
That guy is wasted in construction work. Somebody should hire him as a language instructor.
