We Have All Lines Of Cheese And Meat

Dear Editor,

As a former long time teacher you must have noticed as I have the laughable misspellings that some of the stores on Beach 116 Street have on their outdoor signs.

A few examples “We do all kids of sandwiches”.[sic] The same store also lets it be known that “we have all lines of cheese and meat”.[sic] I’ve only two semesters of college to go on but, “cheese and meat?”[sic] singular instead of plural?

If someone were to go and explain the misspellings would they be considered politically incorrect? If I were to open a store in a country where I am not familiar with the language would it not make sense for me to hire a sign maker, who would make me a sign for me [sic] that makes sense to the locals? I can speak a fair amount of Spanish and to a lesser extent Italian but if I were to make a sign for a store I were to open in Spain or Italy [sic] would be ridiculed because those languages are not my native tongue, English is.
