I’ll take a pass

Mister MRP and I disagreed somewhat as to whether this sign was incorrect.


To me, there’s no ‘s after visitor, in order to keep it consistent with resident. Mister was open to the possibility that there was an implicit pass, as in visitor’s pass one week or visitor’s one week pass.



  1. Mister is simply a kinder, more tolerant human being. That’s why you and I get along so well.

  2. How many station wagons full of kids in swimsuits were behind you honking as you two debated the matter? Now, please, stop picking on the Cape. It’s a happyland with perfect grammar.

  3. No smelly, sandy, fried clam-craving kids were deprived in this process. Other than the junior MRPs.

    And don’t worry, there aren’t any more Cape Cod ones. Mister MRP wouldn’t stop to let me take a picture of the best one I saw so we’re all done. For now.
