John The Dots!

A GRAMMATICALLY INCORRECT BUSINESS NAME APPEARS IN SHAWLANDS!

The new letting agency on Kilmarnock Road opened up recently, and I could hardly believe my eyes when I saw the additional full-stop after the first name.  Clearly, the business (and person) is John C. Boyle — where the middle name is abbreviated to a single letter ‘C’.  Such contractions are indicated by full-stops. This simple rule seems to have been lost on this company, and may cost them business as a solicitor and letting agency; people may expect them to have an eye for detail and some evidence of a basic education!  Things are still getting worse.

    I know what you are saying, but there is always the possibility that this was done for purely aesthetic means.
