What is the proper form you have to fill out to get an exception for your clean concrete?

People who are challenged by G,P, & S don't notice correct use of the language. People with good language skills do notice errors like those noted. If in business one really should make a strong effort to look professional.

Kinda like the yard stones with people's name on them. "The Smith's" . No surprise many people don't know this but the business selling the rocks should get it correct.

I suppose there's a very slim possibility it's deliberate, but then I'm thinking, nah. Not sure what advertising "excepting" clean concrete would mean. Taking dirty concrete? I'm thinking much more likely the righter just didn't get it write. grin

Thanks for taking time to post the pic.

So you have to wash your concrete before they will except it?

My first trip to China I started taking pictures of all the funny misspellings but they're so common that you get numb to them.

Somewhat related when discussing grammatical errors are usage errors. One particular example is how many people use the word “I”in a sentence when they are the object instead of using “me”. For instance, “Bob asked if he could go with Rich and I to the game”.

This rule works well - drop the other party from the sentence, leaving only yourself, and it's pretty obvious:

Bob asked if he could go with I to the game.

vs.

Bob asked if he could go with me to the game.
