I Finally Found My Calling

File this under, "Reasons She Is Already Crazy".

Just came across this article about 2 guys and then eventually 4 traveling across the country correcting typos on signs and billboards.

If only they would let me join.

I'd start at the Burger King down the street and correct, "Manager's Do Not Have Access To The Safe." Blake can confirm that this drives me absolutely insane each time he's in the car with me and I witness it.

Don't misunderstand me. I am not typo-free....especially on this blog because I'm typically writing while two toddlers are biting at my ankles. But, a sign? Printed professionally? Shouldn't each company have some sort of a spell check system?

Caroline, I know you want to come, too. I'm looking into it.

Everytime I see a typo on something printed I think "whoever designed that didn't proof read", or"I bet they got in trouble for that one" if it's a really big mistake. My biggest fear as a graphic designer at Cargokids was putting the wrong price on something.
