I Saw the Sign

For some reason every express checkout lane in New York seems to say "10 items or less." Less refers of course to an amount and fewer refers to a number, so it's disheartening to see it done wrong so often and apparently so willfully. On the other hand, it's so refreshing to go up to Cape Cod and to see what happens when people still care about the language. The express lane sign reads "10 items or fewer." I took a picture just in case no one back home believed what I saw.

Checkout lane 7, Shaw's, Orleans

Note:  Don't miss Cape Cod as you've never seen it.
