Just So You Know

*snickering* And someone in some department in some cramped little office OK'ed this sign? It's good to know that DOT lunacy is world wide. xoxoxoxo

Lunacy indeed, Savannah, though I do feel much safer for knowing that the sign was not in use.

But what if someone driving by had seen a blank sign, wondered if the letters had fallen off, causing him to miss his turn-off. If he'd gotten lost he may have ended up at a haunted castle and held captive by the likes of, oh, Freddie Kruger, Norman Bates, or Liberace? Maybe all three!
*Bah-bah-bah-baaaahm!* (Sounds of impending doom)

A lesson in irony?

Petrea Burchard said...

Oh my god, WTF happens when a sign that says "Sign Not In Use" is in use?

Speedway said...

A sign, unassigned?

Could be worse, it could say, say, "Will work for reflective letters."

Only in your very strange dreams, Speedway. We're a country of health and safety extremity over here; if a sign has no use whatsoever, we'll put it up and tell you so.

Hee hee, Ms.M.

It's a scary thought, Petrea.

It was already reflective, Speedway, so yes: worse. I just wonder at the amount of time and money spent on deciding that a sign needs to be erected with no possible use, the design and manufacture and erection of that sign, and the mental capacity of the people who made the decision.
