A Little Something We Hate

Never mind the fact that the owner of this Philly sandwich shop is acting like a jerk and offending anyone who might be visiting from a country that doesn't speak English — not to mention vulnerable immigrants to our supposedly friendly land.

What really has us clawing our eyes out are the unnecessary quotation marks around "Speak English."

This is the typographic equivalent of airquotes. Ugh! Cheesy! This practice must be stopped -- along with such disrespect for people who are learning English. We wonder how many languages he could order a cheesesteak sandwich in....
