here's one for fellow grammarian

Check out this shining specimen of signage, from a parking lot I frequented this weekend.

There is no other way I can explain the superfluous question mark on the second bullet other than: Definitely take your ticket with you, and maybe pay before returning to your car. Or maybe not.

Or do you think maybe the sign maker was trying to be polite by adding the question mark?

FOFL!! Thanks for thinking of me!

You just have to shake your head sometimes, and wonder where it will all end. No one seems to care anymore...

Maybe you should make that into a sign and post it somewhere.
