When You Put Your Best Foot Forward, Make SURE It's Your Best Foot

I think most of us strive for excellence in what we do...and not just in our real estate business.

We like to make a good impression, after all. It's critical in our business, as it is in any business. And it can tell others a great deal about us very quickly - good AND bad.

The sentiment in this signage is pretty powerful, and worth remembering.

Unfortunately, the irony is that excellence has apparently not quite become a habit at this company.

It reminded me of recent signage at the new Walmart in Encinitas.

The painting contractor painted YEILD not once but twice on the road out front of the new store for all to see and it made the headlines. They corrected it quickly - I went to check.

We all make mistakes from time to time. It's just better to not have it publicized.

Typos happen.  Too bad they don't have the ability to use spell check on their sign board, LOL  Good catch!

Rosemary - true, but who wants to be wrong 50% of the time? LOL

Jay - LOL. You have a good sense of humor.

Lenn - OK I admit I had to read the sign twice myself.

Doris - so true

Melissa - well I always find it easier to spot others' errors than my own.

Karen - true, that's why they invented spell check. Of course that won't work on signage.

Debbie - Ha, ha, I have seen that before, and some other pretty glaring stuff.

Gwen Banta is forever listing funny typos in the MLS. Your Rayne water example and the Walmart thing should be added to the list.
