Two blocks of bad type

Stuff like this probably doesn't bother most people but it's something I notice. I was walking to get lunch the other day and found these bad treatments without even trying. It made me wonder how many examples of terrible type I could find in one block, but maybe that'll be a post for another day.

I don't understand why anyone would pay for such a large sign only to have a big space between the "T" and the "A" and have the last "T" Jammed up against the "E"

Copperplate is naturally a pretty wide typeface. Why not pick a different typeface rather than horizontally crunch it like this.

Again, why get so lazy and horizontally crunch the word. This one wouldn't even be that hard. Just toss an condensed sans serif on it.
