When does a smarty-pants become a pedant?
I was in a washroom at a gas station today (I don’t recommend it) and saw a paper sign over the mirror that read:
“We’re on septic. Please take consideration into how much paper you flush.”
Well, I couldn’t stand it, so I got out my pen and corrected it. I circled the word “into” and drew an arrow from where it was to where it should have been, which is between “take” and “consideration”.
My honest motivation was to improve the sign.
So, what do you think? Am I too pedantic and should I bite my tongue (or in this case, my pen) and mind my own business?
If you saw that would you laugh, argue, not get it, or be annoyed? No, I really want to know your reaction.
One more question: would you have done something similar?
