“Delusions of Grammar…the Worst of the Worst…

  • Kids with gas eat free. (Kids without gas have to sit in the car.)
  • All international passengers with luggage including Canada must be checked in at ticket counter by agent. (Canada cannot fit in a suitcase.)
  • Please Pre-pay in advance after dark. (You could have saved yourself some space on this sign!)
  • Please remain seated until tender is dock. (‘Please remain seated until tender is dock? ‘ (??) Hmm. ‘Please remain seated until the dock is tendered.’ (??) Who knows?)”
