I stink at htis kind of stuff, especially if it is grammar related, but I'll hazard a guess - persons instead of poeple?

Hi Travis! This error is subtle--you have to read both signs about the pool to find the error.

Okay...I've never done this, so, odds are I'm not right, but what the heck...

1. No smoking permitted (because the cigs would get wet?)
2. The no food thing said twice
3. persons instead of people

Told you I'd never done this, sooo don't laugh too loud at my answers...grin...

Decaf, please said...

Do you ever stop in traffic to take photos? Are you that lady ; )

Lilfix said...

taking another shot...you have me curious and that's a dangerous thing for me...teehee...

I read your post to Travis...sooo..

Does it have to do with the fact that they don't want food, drink, etc in the pool or on the pool deck AND they don't want food/drink within 4 feet of pool...is the deck closer then 4 feet...?

Danette Haworth said...

And we have a winner!

Brenda, yes, one sign states no food or drink on or near the pool deck, but the other sign implies that you may have food or drink on the pool deck as long as you stay four feet away from the pool (thus invalidating the first sign).

Decaf, yes! That's me! (Was that you honking?)

I take photos while driving and talking on the cell and adjusting my lipstick because the egg and cheese biscuit I'm eating at the same time sometimes leaves crumbs on my lips!

I won! I would like to think the people in my life who made this moment happen...

My darling husband, without his being at work today, and My wonderful son, without him thinking mom is nuts and leaving me alone today, I wouldn't have had the chance to play on the computer today...

Oh yes...and thank you Danette for giving me something to keep my mind busy...goodness knows my mind needs all the busy time it can get...grin...

Oh, Brenda, wonderful acceptance speech! (I felt like I was at the Oscars.)

Sheri said...

You all are too funny!

Well I'm glad Brenda is such a magnificent observer. I never would have got that one.

Nice speech, lil.

Thanks for saving me the embarrassment of having to guess.

I think I stared at that photo for 20 minutes before I resigned myself to never figuring it out. Lilfix is a genius as far as I am concerned! :)
Love these posts, Danette!

Linda and Courtney,

A bit of a stumper, this one! (I think mainly because we're geared to look for mechanical errors rather than contextual errors.)

Mary Witzl said...

Damn! I was proud of myself for getting it, but someone else beat me to it.

Next time I'll have to be quicker on the draw. I used to split semantic hairs for a living, and how I miss it...

Danette Haworth said...

Haha! I like your attitude, Mary! Mary QuickDraw McGraw!
