What I love about this sign...(1) They started to write shoemaker with "SC" and had to cross out the "C." The German word for shoemaker is schuster. Sometimes I think I live in Germany.(2) Is he really a shoemaker? Is he not a shoe repairman or a cobbler? What kinds of shoes does he make? Maybe he tells his mother he MAKES shoes to impress her.(3.) I know it's killing you not to mention the missing apostrophe.
Lindy, I didn't even notice the crossed-out "C."He might be a shoemaker. He is a fourth-generation cobbler, I know. Maybe she didn't know how to spell "cobbler?"About the apostrophe. Yeah. I am trying to keep the scold inside me. It's hard, but I am trying not to be That Person. You know. The one who always has to correct everyone else. It's enough to know on the inside that I'm Right.
