It’s been a while since I outright vandalized anything, so I kept an extra-sharp eye out for any kinds of errors on my commute time.
It didn’t take long — I saw an error on an ad in a red line car.

So we have the quotation marks, and we don’t even have an exclamation point?
Ugh, unwarranted quotes are awful! Are you supposed to imagine a guy in the back who just shouts these lines out?
I crossed them out with my trusty Sharpie, which I now keep in my purse at all times.

That’s the closest shot I got, but the train was a bit bumpy. (I didn’t want to do it while we were at a stop. The MBTA is strict — people weren’t allowed to take pictures until very recently. Still, I didn’t want to press my luck.)
Unwarranted quotes are bad.
I felt like defacing a Budweiser ad that said Beantown on it. I hate the word Beantown. I don’t know of anybody who lives in Boston and actually likes it.
But I could be wrong. Does anyone from Boston out there like Beantown?
