Fôtes, fottes, fotes d'ortograf...

Fautes d'orthographe Lycée St Vincent de Paul Versailles
The above photo isn't going to tell all non-French speakers loads so let VDP try to explain. This is a sign on the door of Saint Vincent de Paul vocational high school. In a nutshell, the school is asking pupils to avoid spitting inside and outside the premises. Should they do so, they will be asked to clean their flobs and should they refuse, they will be punished with a caution. As such, this isn't anything particularly extraordinary, right? Ah but the problem here is that there are no less than four spelling mistakes, which is just wonderful for a school! VDP is away for a long weekend, posts are scheduled, see you soon!

C'est ballot les quatre fautes pour un lycée... VDP s'absente pour un long weekend, les billets sont programmés, à bientôt !

Well, that doesn't speak well for the administration, no proof-reading? I see the students like Monster, the universal beverage of youth (wait until they get old and actually need the energy). Have a great weekend!

Apparently the janitor's not doing much of a good job keeping the rubbish bin empty either!

Looks like no one is getting out of that big blue door.

For a school I'd say that's rather shameful.

Lowell said...

That is so funny! It appears, too, from your photos that the school needs some outside help!

It is probably a lost cause, here is even worse. Have a nice trip!

Good catch, Ciel!

A scandal indeed.
