Never Too Late…

Florida Career College is a for-profit school with nine locations throughout the sunshine state. FCC offers twelve academic/career programs. None of them, incidentally, are English composition.

Miami-Dade’s WSVN reports that FCC had a billboard in Hollywood, Fla with a big mistake:

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 school’s been open since 1982. Tuition appears to be about $15,000 a year.
