Why didn’t I think of this?

I can’t tell you how often I come across grammar and punctuation errors on flyers, store signs, marquees, banners, church bulletins, menus—which is why I never run out of material for Wordless Wednesday!  A few gems:

  • Secretary’s Love Our Cakes! (spotted at DQ)
  • Education at It’s Best! (ad for North Carolina A&T State Univ.)
  • There back – Buffalo nuggets $2.99 (sign at Popeye’s Chicken & Biscuits)

So imagine my joy at discovering that the Grammar Nerd Corrective Label Pack is now available as a peel-and-stick remedy for grammar faux pas everywhere.  This cracked me up!

I’m pathetic, I know. Maybe I should buy myself one of these T-shirts.

    In the sentence
    I’m standing in a patch of golden yellow flowers having a stare down with a small green (Sweet Bee). Can you tell me if the Sweet Bee should be, sweet bee?
    Thank you in advance for your help.

    Debi: Thank you for your question! Having never heard of a sweet bee, I did a quick Google search and discovered it’s actually called a sweat bee.

    Sweat bee article

    To answer your question, sweat bee (lower case)would be correct because it’s a common noun and not a proper noun.

    Hope that helps!
