Road rage...

Trek_rider2_098 Why is this sign bent? Hmmm, maybe because it "accidentally" fell on top of my car. I hate this stupid sign and I think it hates me back. It used to live on the sidewalk in front of our house until it fell over and stayed that way for 4 months, taunting me. Many times, I called and e-mailed the DC government to rat it out and get it vanquished to some other unsuspecting neighborhood.

Then one day, I came home from work and it had moved roadside. The sign had upped its ante. It went from being a pedestrian hazard and obnoxious eyesore to taking up one of the precious few, non-metered parking spaces on our block. Many nights, I’ve come home late and had to park at a meter. Inevitably, I forget that I’ve parked at said meter and end up with a $25 parking ticket. You've hit me in my The_signpocketbook, sign, and now you’ve taken it to another vile level.

Last night, I had to choose –- parking meter or the only free spot on the street. I thought we could let bygones be bygones. Obviously, I was mistaken. You may have won this battle –- sign -- but, you haven’t won the war.


I, too, hate a sign...actually, 4 signs on one pole. The bottom sign says "Private Driveway," followed by a bright red "Do Not Enter" sign topped with two black and white "One Way" arrows. The signs were placed recently across the street from our front door at the entrance to our brownstone neighbors' alley. It couldn't be more of an eye sore from our vantage point if it tried. You know when you have those neighbors who never let up on bugging you? It's always something new, and this time it was a bright, tomato red sign that refuses to be ignored.

I would have so moved that sign myself, if possible... to the road ;)
