Everything Is Big In Texas -- Including Spelling Errors

A car dealership in Longview, Texas, is seeing the writing on the wall after discovering a huge spelling error on a billboard.

Six months ago, Gorman McCracken Mazda put up a billboard announcing a "Piece Of Mind Warranty" for all customers.

Problem is, they meant a "Peace Of Mind Warranty."

The spelling error faces away from the building so it went unnoticed by employees until recently when typo-conscious customers have been giving the dealership a piece of their own minds, KLTV reports.

"We’ve had several people complain about it and we realize our mistake," General Manager Travis Potter told the station.

The dealership could change the sign, but has chosen to donate the amount that it would cost to fix the sign -- about $250 -- to the East Texas Literacy Council instead, MyFoxDFW.com reports.
