Rachel Grace of the lifestyle blog Heart of Light walked past this sign next to outdoor tables at a Taco Bell/Pizza Hut restaurant in Westwood Village (Los Angeles) for months before finally stopping to take a photo. I’m glad she did!

A person who buys food at Pizza Hut or Taco Bell is a customer. A person who makes or supplies outfits is a costumer. It’s customary, therefore, to run the u first, then the o. A costume change is in order.
Customers is right. Is that surprising? The customers are always right. Or so I’ve heard. You’d be hard-pressed to convince me these consumers are correct:
• Customers who take up two spaces in the parking lot
• Customers who follow closely and push their cart into your heels
• Customers who leave their cart in the middle of the aisle as they peruse the shelves
• Customers who don’t move up after placing their items on the conveyor belt
• Customers in the “10 items or less” line with, oh, 76 items
• Customers who hold up the line to go grab one forgotten item
• Customers who wait to hear the total before pulling out their wallet or, worse, fishing for their checkbook
• Customers who dig through their purse for “exact change”
Those shoppers pale in comparison to the worst customers I’ve ever seen, on a sign near the UCLA campus.
Thank you, Rachel, for sharing. Your customers service was excellent. Five stars.
