Less... er, fewer problems

A leading supermarket chain is to reword signs directing customers to checkouts accepting '10 items or less', as many people i.e. those with a basic command of English, feel it should be '10 items or fewer'.  The amendment sensibly dodges the issue altogether, instead stating 'Up to 10 items'.

I wonder whether rivals will do likewise.

HA! YES!

Er...bad grammar gives me rage. I wish Estates would fix the security team "comprising of" error on the purple signs on campus.
