Oh horror: The fall of the haus of spelling

Has the housing crisis really gotten this bad? Apparently so.

Mr. Rewrite usually doesn't go after civilians, but this sign was too close to a school to ignore.

Let's suppose there's a German influence here (house = haus in Deutsch). It clearly isn't the case, but work with Mr. Rewrite on this. Even then, "hauses" wouldn't be correct. The plural would be "hauser," with two dots -- whatever that is -- over the A.
