    Whoever says punctuation doesn’t matter should read this, note the comma, and go pluck themselves.

    Waiter: “Yes, SIR, we WILL take you back to the kitchen to talk to the ‘idiot’ who made the sign…he’s our chef, as it happens…”

    I have been known to fix signs at work at well. If you’re typing on a computer, there’s no need for misspelled words.

    Punctuation is important. My wife heard a radio announcer say this: “Saipov said President Trump should get the death penalty.”Now was that supposed to be:“Saipov,” said President Trump, “should get the death penalty”?It sounded like number 1.

    As a proofreader myself, I completely applaud your actions, Henry. By the way, you were delicious.

    This reminds me of the fellow who saw a sign at the butcher’s for “free range chicken,” and didn’t understand why the cashier insisted he had to pay.
