GRAMMARIANS, UNITE! I NEED YOUR HELP.
I might be about to lose my job as a sign designer at a theme park because I want the menus I design to be grammatically correct within the bounds of Standard American English. The director of our food and beverage department wants me to omit all hyphens and commas from his miles-long descriptions of our menu items because he wants it to be "just words and prices." Apparently hyphens and commas that *I* think (and SAE grammarians think) make for a clearer communication *he* says, "will overwhelm the customer." You know, because 8 descriptors with no punctuation isn't overwhelming or anything. He has been heckling me and is actually trying to get me fired for insubordination because I printed the menus with correct grammar. All I can say is, "...Really?"
WHAT I NEED FROM YOU ALL, if possible, are photos of menu boards out in America that contain correctly-punctuated menu item descriptions. If I get fired from this job (or come up for review in this matter) because of my desire to keep Standard American English intact in ALL of our theme park signage, I will need a body of images to back up my side of the story.
Discussion of this and whether or not I'm insane for my refusal would also be interesting, if you all are so inclined.
