literally


Katie saw this one on a moving truck in Atlanta. So the question is, do they actually have a red carpet, or not? If they do, those quotation marks are not necessary. If they don't, I have another blog for them. Regardless, a quotationed qualifier always is strange: you could just not say it, you know.

This one makes sense. It's about time someone realized what "literally" means. I suppose they could have said "We figuratively roll out the red carpet."

We noticed the same thing back in 2005: literally roll out the red carpet.

If they do actually roll out a red carpet, I want to hire that moving company. How cool would that be? Having your stuff moved over a red carpet?
Okay, maybe not as cool as I was thinking, and probably not worth the extra cost.

I bet they do. Too bad they used QMs instead of an underline or italics.

I actually hired Peach Movers when I moved from my apartment into my house back in 2006, and I will attest to the fact that do not roll out a red carpet, literally or figuratively...
