Br-reakdown service

I'm not sure how reassured I feel knowing that these fine vehicles are here awaiting the call to come tow away my broken down car. Perhaps it's something about the way the back of the truck's cab seems bashed in, maybe it's the spare tires leaning up against it that give me the impression that it doesn't see a lot of action...

No, I've decided! It's the way they've misspelled "breakdown service" along the truck's side. What should say "soccorso stradale" (with one T in the second word) instead says "SOCCORSO ST TRADALE".

I know this reveals my annoying English teacher perfectionism, but really, how can you trust a service that permanently *paints on* a spelling mistake? ;-)

jajajaja That was a fun post! I love the sky in this photo. Is it warm there in Italy? Here in the Philippines it was like 35 degrees in the morning then t'was like a typhoon swoop in the afternoon. Weather is really unpredictable!

Hope everythings fine there! God bLEss you and Mabuhay from the Philippines!

LOL, that's funny! Embarrassingly I'm always posting spelling mistakes on my blog....I guess it's more frequent when I post too early in the morning before I'm fully awake. I sometimes notice them later in the day and try to correct it but I imagine there are people who have stumbled upon my typos and leave in disgust,lol.

It doesn't appear that these trucks have been used in quite awhile!

Actually, I think spelling is a minor problem along the whole communication spectrum, it's really not the most important thing...unless...you print it in a book, or go and paint it on a wall where everyone can see! ;-)))
