actually they hope you do forget


this is from the same place as this picture. My trip to DC last month was just FULL of quotation marks. I got some more from this weekend in Chicago. "don't forget to press button for your receipt" is a crappy slogan.

Wow, they really want to make sure your ticket is paid. underlined and italicized, crazy.

As for the quotes... they just hurt

Well, both of those signs were technically more Baltimore than DC (calling it "Baltimore-Washington International" really is misleading since Washington is 40 miles away). But I have no doubt that you saw tons of incorrect punctuation use in D.C.

yeah, you're right sportschick. I flew in to Baltimore, but spent most of my time inside the beltway, which is why I think of it as my DC trip.

the problem with the quotation marks in this picture is not that they are used, but that the quote is left unattributed.

It was a quote by Winston Churchill c. 1961.

Interestingly, it was right after this that he said his famous words, "now, would you please move your butt."
