Let’s just face it. For some people, spelling and grammar just aren't their strong suit.

Even with today’s technology of spell check and autocorrect, things can go haywire. How many times have our phones betrayed us in an email or a text to our boss?

We know it’s always a good idea to double (or even triple) check the things we write, but admittingly, some of us just don’t have the time in our busy schedule to make sure everything we write is 100% correct.

But what about a sign that will be displayed prominently where hundreds or potentially thousands of people would see it? You’d think you’d want to definitely make sure your spelling and grammar were up to par, right?

We bet that this Western New York business wishes they could go back in time and do just that.

You Need To See This Hilarious Sign In Fredonia

The White Inn in Fredonia, New York is a familiar landmark in Chautauqua county. The 24-room hotel has been closed since 2018, and is currently undergoing renovations to turn the 150-year-old building into a boutique hotel, restaurant, and event center. 

Fredonia residents have been aware of the construction for some time, but if you’re visiting the area for the first time in a while, you might not be aware of the changes going down at The White Inn.

And if you happen to be driving by the old hotel, you might not be able to tell what’s happening from the sign out front, either…

So, here’s the thing.

Are construction crews remodeling the hotel? Yes.

Are they also renovating the hotel? Also yes!

But unfortunately for whoever created this eye-catching sign, “remodelation” is absolutely not a word that exists in the English language. You’ve got to admit the sign definitely gets your attention, though!
