OK, here is something I struggle with. At work one of my coworkers and I are constantly putting up signs. You know the ones, “please don’t turn off the AC”, “please close the door”, “do not unplug”. Now the question is: are the people I work with and the people who visit my building illiterate or ignorant? Do they think that the signs do not apply to them, do they not understand them, or are they just to lazy to read?
This then got me to thinking which is the greater evil? Is it the fool who reads the sign and says, “I’m not listening to any sign, I’ll do what I want”, or is it the one who doesn’t even look at the sign and is so in their own little world that they are clueless? I have no idea.
When I was younger the song, Signs was popular – the original by Five Man Electrical Band. To me it was a song of rebellion, I never imagined that I’d be on the other side of, “Do this, don’t do that, can’t you read the sign“. “Imagine that”
