It's 2017 And People Still Don't Know How To Use Quotation Marks

Seriously! When are people going to realize that emphasis on text can’t be created through the exaggerated use of quotation marks! If you notice that people still won’t take you seriously despite the many many exclamation points and lots and lots of quotation marks, then it’s time to admit you belong to that elite group of folks who don’t really know what these symbols are supposed to do. Let’s “check out” these horribly entertaining signs and let’s hope we all learn a thing or two!

Those quotes make it seem like the security guard is more of an art exhibit than someone who should actually be doing his job instead of snoozing.

THE DECEPTIVE BAPTISTS

Not only does the sign look very shady, but the person that wrote it doesn’t seem to care about grammar or typos. It reads more like a trick to lure unsuspecting victims than an actual place of worship.

TACO ABOUT AN ENTRéE

Sooo, if it isn’t meat, then what are you putting on that “meatless” taco, man? Between this taco with no meat and the “low-fat” yogurt it would be better to skip this restaurant altogether. And here you thought that Taco Bell’s mystery meat was bad!

DAD, WE NEED TO TALK

Dad, We Need To Talk Shareably

For 20 years they’ve been keeping a deep, dark secret. For 20 years they’ve been lying to him and to themselves. But no more. By the looks of those misused quotation marks, it seems like dad was adopted!
