The origen of cinammon

At the pet store today, I stumbled across TWO misspellings. Unacceptable!

Exhibit A: “Cinnamon” is spelled incorrectly.

Annnnnd, Exhibit B: They were able to spell “budgerigars” properly (I admit, I had to research to make sure they did!), but not “origin.”

An employee at this pet store walked around the corner just as I was photographing these signs. She didn’t say anything to me, but she (understandably) gave me an odd look. I thought about explaining myself but I chickened out. I’ll admit, I’m not as assertive as I should be. So I’m wondering, do any of my fellow grammar snobs point out grammatical errors when you see them in public places?

  1. I’m more likely to point out spelling errors than grammatical ones. Don’t know why. Maybe because they’re usually easier to explain and correct.
