Give Us A Sign

Posted on Monday, July 21, 2008

This is one of my favorite signs on the Green River. It reminds me of my 14-year-old daughter.

Me: “Mamie, dump no materials!”
Mamie (with 14-year-old attitude): “Whatever."
The other thing I love about this sign? It replaced an earlier sign that also admonished people not to dump but also included a big “No Trespassing” message complete with skull and crossbones. When the trail reopened, the “No Trespassing” part was no longer applicable, so they replaced the original sign with this sign. And what did they do with the first one?

Why there it is! Right on the ground. At the base of the new “No Dumping” sign.

Margaret Says:

Gotta love that WHATEVER. I especially enjoyed the fate of the old sign. Hmmm...

Danger Panda Says:

Margaret, someone is clearly just not thinking straight at the county. That's my diagnosis.

JoJo Says:

Is it me or is the new sign grammatically incorrect?

Shouldn't "material" be plural? And "Whatever" be "Whatsoever"?

Ah. Whatever.

Danger Panda Says:

JoJo, the whole thing is wrong on so many levels. That's why I love it so!

Hi Ladies P.,
I wasn't trying to hide! Just getting cheap about blogging. I tend to hate Blogger, but it's definitely cheaper than maintaining my own site. Thanks for sticking with me. Rough week, but things are looking up!

FirstNations Says:

...made even more macabre by the fact that several years back someone was doing quite a lot of dumping along the Green River. obviously the first sign didn't work.

Danger Panda Says:

FN, I was wondering when someone was going to say it!

Reichart: "Gary, no dumping materials!"
Ridgway: "Whatever..."

FirstNations Says:

i can usually be relied upon to make that kind of association. glad to help :D
