DO NOT ENTER...because...

From the Cop side: I don't often write about current police stuff...because I would hate for some citizen to become upset with how stupid they really are in our eyes.  But, shit, I've been a cop in California for 31 years now...minus 24 months for national guard deployments to fun places like Bosnia and Iraq....but I' guess I've seen and heard a lot of "stuff" in my time. 
I try to think positive about it all and like that old Monty Python song..."Look on the bright side of life" or somethinglikethat.  In crazyness and crime I try to help and do good. 

But, one thing I've noticed in the area I work...an observation that I've noted many times.  The newer car drivers don't want to obey signs and stuff if they don't know why they are there. 
Take the case of the Do Not Enter signs where  a very large ass bus has to exit an area.  I went to traffic court today...and the silly little bitch driver said that she saw the many signs telling her not to turn and enter into an area the big ass bus has to exit.  But she felt since there was no sign telling her it was a big ass bus exit, that the judge should dismiss the cite. 

I could tell that the judge wanted to call her a silly little bitch, but he refrained from such verbage and just made a funny face. 

Guilty, pay the fine, next case. 

How about this: DO NOT ENTER DUMBASS, THERE IS A REALLY BIG ASS BUS THAT NEEDS THIS SPACE TO EXIT.  IF YOU REALLY WANT TO DRIVE IN HERE, DON'T CALL THE POLICE AND MEAT WAGON TO HELP YOUR DUMBASS. 

I wish they'd let me make up the road signs.  There would be no questions any more....ever.

Shame the judge couldn't take her license.

I'm having flashbacks of "Stupid" from when I worked in banks. One of my favorite stories is when a woman threatened to get me fired because I would NOT accept the cash she was FAXING into the bank to bring her account from red to black. She kept yelling at me, "BUT IT'S CASH!"

I'd comment, but I can't read the post. There's white-out all over my screen, guess I need a new one.

If they let you make road signs there would be less questions but more accidents, because people like me would be laughing too hard to drive straight. :D

CP, I think it was her first ticket

KD, You can't fix stupid...

PG, Here, I'm e-mailing you some white out remover.

Sak,
My most popular sign would be: "NO HUA DRIVING"
