more "free" stuff


I'll just go with what Matthieu wrote to me for this one: "When I saw this sign, I wasn't fooled: I knew I'd have to pay for my drink, so I kept walking."

I love your blog! I am big into grammer and notice that every where I go. I will have to keep an eye out for quotation marks!

This seems to be a common one. I really don't get it.

It can't be a slogan, but maybe they brought a customer a free drink and he was like "wow, that sure is complimentary!" so they put it on their sign...

What's worse is this one is in Comic Sans.

Lol, this one was funny. I've seen this one a million times.

Hey. "Worst of all" the word complimentary is incorrect!! It should be complementary.

Heavens. Love your site. Put a link to it on my blog - Bowl of Cheese dot com.

Actually "complimentary" is correct.

"Complementary" would mean they're serving something analogous to beverage rather than giving it to you "with the compliments of the house."

I agree with Marc, the quotation marks are bad enough but Comic Sans is the worst and people use it like it's their job or something. It's horrible!

Comic Sans and quotation mark double whammy. *Shudders*

Maybe they were just trying to be clear that the free drink won't actually give you compliments. LOL
