Unfortunate Bank Sign

We've all seen signs like this one, where the light has burned out on part of it, creating an inadvertently humorous typo. I still regret never stopping to capture an image of the Goodyear tire store's sign that, for a couple of years, said "Goo ear." A neighborhood grocery store had an unlit letter O for so long that shoppers still refer to the store as the "Fod Star." A bank cannot afford to have a partly-lit sign for long. It implies a lack of attention to detail. Burned-out letters also imply a lack of funds. Happily, this sign was fixed quickly, but the image still makes me chuckle.
