Delivers us from idlers – more signage errors

Written by catpaw

Remember the last article about the sign in need of proofing? This sign stirs up a few questions as well:

Sign found on construction sign: No idling Turn off engine Delivers will be denied

Each time I walk by it, I begin to itch. I get this overwhelming urge whip out a black marker and add the missing IE. It’s such a tiny omision but it drives me nuts. I also want to stand in front of the sign and shout out in my best Ian McKellen voice “IDLERS SHALL NOT PASS”, but somehow I don’t think anyone would get the joke.
