I noticed this sign a couple of years ago at Zapata’s Store on the Cay. While it’s not the worst misspelling I’ve seen, it makes me laugh every time I see it. I know they intended for it to say customers and not costumers, but I can’t help imagining a boat full of people in costume pulling up in front of the store.
Of course, the day something like that actually happens, I probably won’t be surprised. Weird things—better than I could make up—happen here. Over the years, I find myself shrugging and saying, “Of course.”
