Hello friends- I just had to post this up for the fun of it. We live in the Midwest, and there are a lot of small towns and rural areas if you drive in between the bigger cities, and most of these are sleepy farming communities that have been around for a long time.
Case in point, we were traveling around Branson, Missouri lately and stopped to get gas. This gas station also proudly sold fishing bait, and adult beverages. You can see their advertising here, I took this picture from my iPhone while I was pumping gas:
So, I read it once and it “read” perfectly. Until I read it again and noticed a slight mix up. They aren’t selling “live” beer are they?
Well it goes to show you that a simple “typo” can make a mess. I thought it was funny and even considered that the business owner did this on purpose, but after looking around at the quality of the establishment I concluded that this wasn’t a deliberate mistake. It was just a mistake.
This brings me to my point: I own and operate Mission Repair. I typically strive for perfection in my advertising, and any tongue and cheek “slip ups” like this would be obviously deliberate if I made them – I mean, it would be part of a campaign to actually try to be funny! If you’re ever going over our website and see an obvious typo, mistake or contradiction, please email us. While we try to be perfect, I’ll be the first to admit that we are not. We are human beings doing our best! Send an email with any corrections to our webmaster and we’ll get on the changes asap.
Another small typo that I remember was when I lived in Hawaii. I don’t have a picture, but a road crew was painting “yield” on the street, except it was spelled “yeild”. Yeah, I know that wasn’t deliberate either 😉
Every morning when I walk into my office, I look at my bamboo plant. It means nothing overly significant to me, but for some reason, I just love it. Given to me about 3 years ago for a Christmas gift, it has appeared in many reflections of pictures that I have taken for this very blog and I think it’s about time to give it some of it’s own glory!
This is my bamboo plant. I don’t have a name for her/him but let be tell you a little bit about it. It started out as a 3″ baby and has grown into this 2′ monster! I water it once a week and clean the dust off its leaves every month. It has a great light source and for some reason, it continues to grow for me! I have never been a green thumb, so I guess a bamboo plant is perfect match for someone that can kill a plant within days…
Did you know that a plant in your office can increase your productivity? Yep, there have been scientific studies that show a plant placed in a specific location in your office charges your brain and helps you become more attentive towards your tasks! while I can’t say I have proven this with my bamboo, but it’s good to know that this isn’t just decoration.
Do you have an office plant? I’d love to see it! Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your office plant picture and I’ll shoot you over a 15% discount for your next repair service!
P.S. Email me if you have any good name ideas for this plant. Is naming a plant even a thing?
I wanted to post a quick reminder about our iPhone price drop! We have had some very excited customers in the last week enjoy these brand new prices and I want to make sure that these prices reach as many eyes as possible. If you have been gun-shy about finally having your iPhone repaired, please take a look at these awesome prices before you decide to continue living with that awful crack!
These prices are fixed and will not be raising anytime soon, so there is time to get that iPhone repaired, but why wait? From personal experience I know how annoying it is to limp along with an iPhone that can cause bodily harm at any moment. So please, give us a ring at 866-638-8402 and let us get you fixed up!
