Help me understand!!! Puuullllleeease!

December 30, 2008

I hope you all had a fantastic holiday.  I myself am still getting back into the swing of things.  I do have some great ideas for the new year, but first…..this uber-important interactive post…just for the fun of it because let’s face it….no one is getting ANY work done this week!!!  🙂

Let’s just call it a study of wayfinding…..

Ok, so  I am faced with this wonderful example of ridiculous waste and stupidity every day as I pull into the parking lot of my apartment.  As if “dead end” isn’t repetitive enough as it is…

Will you PLEASE let me know by commenting below (be as creative as you like):

what the heck was the guy who installed the 2nd sign thinking?????


Thank you for helping me see this from a different perspective 🙂

    The little one is for the sidewalk and the bigger one is for the street 😀

    Maybe a fan of Duran Duran? Wah Wah Waaah! 😛

    Phew! This did save me from a close brush with getting any work done!

    I have many thoughts on this, but the first is that the two signs are meant to cancel out for those seeing double.

    But more likely, the far sign seems to have a bullet hole in it, probably because a driver was offended that it had been installed with the inferior single bolt through the metal post system.

    Obviously, a whole new post and sign (using the double bolt clamp system) was necessary, and rightfully installed.

    BUT, what a waste of taxpayer money to tear down the first one! The taxpayer always comes first.

    P.S. Expect a third sign now, based on the three phase principle of all lectures: 1) Tell them what you are going to tell them, 2) Tell them, 3) Tell them what you told them.

    That is hysterical.

    As I was falling asleep last night, I became convinced that comment #1 may actually be the truth! Even though that sidewalk’s deadendedness speaks for itself.

    Ha! I am laughing that you are still trying to figure this out….me too!! I think I may agree w/ you on #1, still waiting to see if a 3rd sign shows up per your theory though!! 🙂

    It’s like a tune stuck in your head. Luckily I was able to shake it off long enough to sleep.

    Keep us posted on any other sign activity – could be paranormal!

    yea, i agree this is a street/sidewalk issue, for those renegade pedestrians who see the big sign and think “well, that’s only for cars; i can get thru”.
    no such luck.

    Well, it seems that the sidewalk/street theory may be the winner! What I think is funny is the fact that the freeway wall is directly in front of both of the signs…..I can’t see how a car or a pedestrian think they are getting through….but that’s just me 🙂

    Checking in on this important issue.

    Would it be mean to say that people seem to hit the wall every day without seeing the signs?

    I fear I may have! 😉

    Apologize for the delay on this reply :)hee hee you are funny! Yes! If only there were more signs we may avoid hitting the wall altogether!
    Also, most important being the sidewalk signs….its tricky to know you are about to hit the wall when you going slowly, but you can. We should be thanking the city sign department and hope for even more helpful signs in the future 🙂
