AM I THE ONLY ONE WHO HATES WARNING SIGNS?


Warning signs.  Don't you fucking hate them?  I don't even mean like the one above which I got from a good wee site, HERE No, like the one for some pish beer that you see when the football is on, I think it's Heineken, where the 'DRINK RESPONSIBLY', logo has got so big it takes up the entire screen.  So let's get this straight.  You are going to encourage me to drink a drug which will in time, harm my health, make me look like a prick and may lead to my arrest by the Police or worse end up in an accident or death and you want to salve your  corporate conscience by telling me, I should drink responsibly?

Just as bad are those stupid gantry signs you get on a motorway.  I was driving yesterday in Glasgow, well when I say driving, a submarine would have been more appropriate with the amount of rain that was falling and the signs were telling me to be aware of, 'surface water'.  How fucking stupid do they think I am.  Some of the others that annoy me are, 'remember, mirror, signal, mirror', 'don't drink and drive', 'wear your seat belt', 'don't indulge in oral sex whilst driving' and the best one, ' remember the chief constable is a fat prick'! Although I believe that person in no longer a member of Strathclyde Police.

HEALTH AND SAFETY PISH!

The brewers have to go along with this sort of wank to try and head off the anti-alcohol brigade.
My favorite roadsign reads "Important sign ahead"

My pet hate is the automatic tape message which sqwarks "this vehicle is reversing" again and again.

I once passed a stationary van that was broadcasting "this post office vehicle is under attack, please contact the police". No-one seemed to pay any attention.

Banned, aye the road sign warning of a road sign is always good. I fucking hate that high pitched squeak that forklifts and dumpers give when they are reversing. They are building close to me at the moment and the noise would drive you potty!

Anonymous, pigeons in Scotland are nicknamed, 'doos', so your comment is very relevant!

Heckers, aye that's another one! I sometimes wonder just how fucking stupid they think we are. this all started BTW, as soon as we imported this, blame culture from the States and allowed, no win no fee, lawyers. It always starts with those bastards!
