WSVN 7 News: A billboard for a South Florida college contains a huge mistake.

The billboard for South Florida Career College, located on Pines Boulevard, advertised higher education and a better career for potential students, but also displayed a spelling error.

The billboard was supposed to say, "It's never too late to start your career." However, it actually says, "It's never too late to start you career." Local residents were stunned at the error. Yadeja Tolliver said, "I think it's not professional. If you're going to advertise a college, it's supposed to be part of a school."

Phil Dematteo agreed. "I think it's not a good career starter if you can't spell it right," he added.

The billboard was not the only spelling error by an educational institution. Crews misspelled "school" in a crosswalk in front of Goulds Elementary School in Miami, on June 25, 2009.

South Florida Career College did not comment on the grammatical error.

It was unknown who was responsible for the spelling mistake: the school, the designers of the billboard or the person who put up the sign.

All they did was take a moderately funny picture and bullshit a terrible article that offers no additional entertainment value. I’m tired of seeing this crap.

I didn’t at first. But it’s been proven that you only look at the first and last letter of a word anyway. Did anyone notice that the lady interviewed (Yadeja) can’t even form plausible sentence? What she said makes no sense.
