I’ve long been irritated by people’s use of quotes to indicate emphasis. Hence, I find The “Blog” of “Unnecessary” Quotes damn funny. A few days ago, I saw the following sign in the waiting area of the Littleton Hospital Emergency Room. I just couldn’t resist taking a photo, although I’m sure that the other people in the waiting area thought me a bit strange.
I’m pleased to know that the hospital takes these so-called conditions seriously. Anyone who claims to have them will surely be sent straight to the psych ward!
(In all seriousness, Littleton is an excellent community hospital. Thankfully, they provide medical services, not grammar lessons.)
