How terribly inconvenient...

We went to the Bear Rock Cafe for dinner tonight and were greeted by a sign on the door that read "Sorry for the invonvienence but we have ran out of salad mix and chicken." Invonvienence? We have ran out? There are two other doors into the place so on our way out Connor and I took the long way so I could see if they were all so poorly written. Door #2 said "Sorry for the inconvienence but we have ran out of salad greens and chicken." Door #3 said "Sorry for the inconvienience but we have ran out of salad and chicken."

All three looked like they were written by the same person in the same sloppy handwriting and with the same pink highlighter. Now, this person obviously didn't know how to spell inconvenience since they tried three different spellings trying to get it right, so wouldn't it have made sense to change the sentence so that word wouldn't have to be used? Of course, someone who would use grammar like "we have ran out" probably wouldn't think of that. I guess I should be thankful it didn't say "we ain't got no chicken, nope" or "tain't no salad mix in here, too bad" or perhaps "No pollo aqui." :) Actually these days I'm surprised it wasn't "no chckn, wtf? cul" in some sort of text-message speak.
