Bainbo BS: Grumpy about Spelling Errors (132* d) RE: BS: Grumpy about Spelling Errors 29 Sep 12

Me! I complained!

I know misspellings are now traditional among greengrocers, but I was moved to comment when I saw one in the fruit and veg section of our local Asda (UK supermarket chain owned by Wal-Mart). Hanging from the ceiling was a properly printed board, with photographs, and in the corporate typeface, boasting about how many "cauliflour florets" made up one of your five a day*.

Like DMcG, I didn't fancy queuing at customer services, so I emailed. After a couple of phone calls from ther customer relations people - who didn't understand what the mistake was and had to have it explained - the sign was taken down and, I noted wilth a small feeling of satisfaction, replaced with a properly-spelled one.

*Five A Day - a British Government healthy eating campaign designed to get us eating more fruit and veg.
