A few years ago my boyfriend was working at a restaurant with the word Street in its name. One night he was tasked with creating some flyers for an upcoming event they were putting on. Problem was that he couldn't figure out how to spell "Street". He grabbed one of his work shirts but was convinced that street was misspelled on it. He even made a note to tell his boss in the morning about the issue. Still, he had to get those flyers done so he decided to take a stroll to the end of the block to look at the road sign where he learned two things; they abbreviate the signs and he lives on an ave.
