Living in Chicago, I deal with traffic on a daily basis. There are two ways to handle it. You either drive yourself batty being annoyed by it, or you look for ways to entertain yourself. So far, I’ve avoided going batty – or so I claim. Seeing interesting license plates or bumper sticker is all well and good. Drivers bopping along to music? Definitely fun.
My personal favorite, however, is silly signs. They are the ones that make me smile and giggle every time I pass them. And I need those giggles to keep me sane while yet another person drives 35 miles per hour in the 50 mph zone of a two lane, no passing road.
C’mon, it’s clever. And it gets your attention, right? I’ve never patronized the place, but the sign makes me giggle.
And this one… definitely my all time favorite. I’ve been driving past this one for years. And Ken? If I had a boat, I’d use your services if only for the fact that you used “your” and “you’re” correctly in your sign. And you make me giggle.
So picture this. You’re driving in a parking lot. And you approach the end of the parking lot. Where there is a curb. What do you do? It’s a doozy of a dilemma. Fortunately, this sign helps us out. Instead of going straight, we’ll go either right or left. I really want to know what traffic issues precipitated the need for this sign.
So what are your favorite signs?
