P.S.:  “What’s a Grommet??”

OK, so “Bad Grommet!!” isn’t exactly what I muttered when I saw the misplaced grommets** in my custom sign rider this morning. 🙂

But, it sounded similar.

The reason for my aggravation?

The fix required a time-eating return trip across town to my sign company, to drill new grommets.

Fortunately, they made the correction while I waited . . .

**Grommets are the metal-lined holes in a sign rider, through which the rider attaches to the “For Sale” sign above it.

Examples of Realtor sign riders — besides the Realtor’s name — include “Coming Soon!,” “Open 1-3 p.m.,” and “Skyline Views!”
