Sign Posters are Idiots.

I know I'm not the only one that thinks so.

Last night on my way home, around 11:15 or so I encountered a DETOUR of I-235

That highway has been under construction for like 7 years...

Normally, detours aren't a problem.


First, there weren't any signs saying 'Oh hey, btw, the highway is closed and we're sending you on a detour through the bad part of town.'

The cones just MADE me exit.

fucking cones.

OK, so follow the signs, right? Right.

I turned left where the trusty signs told me to turn left and the first thing I see is a FLASHING sign stating that the ramps are closed.


Turn around, and what do I see...A sign saying that to get on the highway going west I have to GO BACK THE WAY I CAME


So I decided to wing it.

I have no idea where I am, but I figured if I stuck close to the highway I could hold out until I recognized something.

Note: I don't drive much at night.

I became VERY wide awake.

What kind of wayward IDIOT makes a detour lead to a yet-to-be-built entrance ramp?

Next time I'll drive THROUGH those stupid orange thingys and tell them to ram their detour signs up their asses and stand on the fucking corners themselves, and if they do well, then maybe they can remove the signs and go home...


The shit has hit the fan here at work, and it's landing all over my desk.
(i asked for it)
I'm working on cleaning it up.
(can't you tell)

UB's favorite is the detour where they don't post all the detour signs and you end up in East Bumbfuck...
