Bad With Grammatical Directions

I know I never, ever post about Starbucks. So I figured this would be a nice change of pace.

Here's my question. Who labels the pastry trays there? Has he/she passed 9th grade English?

INCORRECT: "Old Fashion Doughnut"

CORRECT: "Old Fashioned Doughnut."

Thanks for listening.

That is *so* one of my pet peeves, that is in such rampant (mis)use that I have actually had to be professionally de-programmed so that I can live a normal life in the face of such language idiocy. Therefore, I no longer let it register in my consciousness but rather am dumbstruck when I see it used correctly.
