Sorry for the WHAT???

Remember a few days ago I told you about Dw & I heading downtown during the snowstorm to get coffee for our weekly date? We walked the streets and almost all of the stores were closed.

Being as we live about 1/2 hour from a major ski resort, it is not uncommon to hear people talk about "fresh powder"...and many people skip work, close stores, whatever to go skiing/snowboarding on fresh powder....


But imagine the giggles for all the people who passed and read this sign....


Ummmm, excuse me, you're sorry for WHAT??

57 Simply Sweet Words:

  1. haHA!! I had no idea what the pun on the word was, so I went to dictionary.com and found out! lol.

  10. oh.my.stars!
    that is absolutely hilarious!!

    i was in a job interview with a guy interviewing a woman for an editorial position and he said, "hmmmm it says here on your resume that you worked for scholastic. could you collaborate on that?"

    the woman and i made eye contact as both of our eyeballs were struggling to stay in our heads.

    i about died. it was hilarious and to this day, i say, ummmm would you care to collaborate on that??


    so funny. i bet they're dying of embarrassment! (cause we all know how uncomfortable wet ski pants can be!)

  16. Maybe because I am an RN, but I found that sign HILARIOUS!!! Thanks for sharing! :))

    (still praying about your insurance company and the rental. Just found out yesterday my new health insurance may not pay for a MRI I just had ... 3500 dollars. Yes, that would be the money in the fund for a newer vehicle for my sweet husband who drives an 89 truck with no A/C and one window that won't roll down. We live in GA and we are in our mid 50's - I don't want him to melt this summer!)

    You have no idea how much your blog blesses me!

  22. Well, I know some people who get so excited about good powder days that they just might pee on themselves....

    Thanks for the chuckle.

  23. Such a neatly printed sign with such a humorously incorrect word!! I'm sorry for their incontinence too - it must be terribly inconvenient for snowboarders or skiers to deal with that.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Oh my, that is hilarious! Wonder if they ever caught their blunder?

    Hugs,

  28. oh, TOO funny!!! I'm really sorry when that happens, too! (:
    Hope you're enjoying your fresh powder. We're enjoying that fact that we HAVEN'T had fresh powder in about a week so we haven't had to shovel out!

  36. That sounds like an issue for the powder ROOM, not day. LOL
    priceless!

  37. If you spell inconvenience incorrectly on your computer and quickly click over the spell check (first word that comes up is incontinence!), then this is what you get: an hilarious sign.

    Not the first time I've seen this type of thing!!

    Hilarious!!!
