The first crocuses breaking through the last of the snow may be a sign of spring, but the signs we’ve seen lately tell us that proofreading is needed (aka proofneeding!). Take a look at some of the amusing, groan-worthy signs Writer’s Relief found on the Internet that prove we all still need to proofread and check the grammar in our work!
