Sign error makes drivers do doubletake
kctv ^ | 7/31/13

Posted on 07/31/2013 5:16:30 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper

A traffic sign near a preschool has some drivers asking questions.

As a driver isn't it our job to obey all posted street signs, but how do you do that with this one, privately posted in front of a preschool, "please slow drively?" It has caused some perplexed reactions.

"It looks like they might have done it on purpose. Is it funny? Yes, it's funny," one man said.

"With people these days, I'm pretty sure it was done on purpose," a woman said.

Based on my experience with the school system it could have been a mistake.

Regardless, will it help children learn proper English? I believe (hope) that is one of the school’s goals.

I am a word game addict, but I don’t think this is amusing in front of a school.

“X-NG” could be a euphemism for a popular expletive which describes my feelings about school. Or shcool.

You’ve misinterpreted that street sign of yours. That was done by a passing road crew who found an innovative way to alert the street sign “editors” that the spelling of school was “X” “NG” (read: Wrong, No Good). The crew seeing this would immediately realize the need to correct the offending signage, consult the official street sign dictionary, and make the necessary correction.

Sheesh...

I blew the whistle when some “public servants” installed all four signs at a four-way Stop BACKWARDS (i.e. you were looking at bare galvanized metal from all directions).

Prime evidence of union guys with their skivvies in a twist over something. Had to be deliberate cause even THEY aren’t that stupid.

LOL! The Wheeling Island exit of I-70 in West Virginia (installed as an afterthought after Exit 1 was already established onshore) was for many years designated as “Exit 0”

I-10 at the Texas-New Mexico border has an Exit 0. It is actually at, or really close to, mile zero.

I think these signs are an insult to children with reduced mental capacity:

I used to have Deram.

Those who have never heard it from one of the original pressings, played on a good system might not know what they're missing. There was a depth, a richness which didn't quite make it into the remixes, much less the digitized made from the remixes. It is difficult to describe, one of those 'you had to have been there' things, perhaps as the difference between really good photography, or seeing a thing in real life, directly.

Probably the same crew that set this up:

Wild-eyed guess: That camera is turned off, and the pointing system has “homed”.

That sign could be construed as an invitation to pedophiles. Hopefully they know better.

Wild-eyed guess: [backward security camera] That camera is turned off, and the pointing system has “homed”.

I didn't know they did that. It's more comforting to think that NOBODY could be THAT stupid.

Good for a swipe at the security freaks though.

This explains the professionally printed (did I say purple?) signs seen nowadays.
