Would we want to know what it would be like if we had no signs?
What if there were no safety signs, billboards and other informational signs what would that be like?
I know I ask the weirdest things sometimes don’t I? This thought came to me when I was reading a post and they asked if you had a funny or memorable story about a sign that you saw etc.. which immediately one did come to mind but I’ll tell you that one another time which may not seem funny to you but to this day my family still teases me about it even my husband who was not there at the time it happened since I was like 12 years old 🙂
Anyways as I mentioned a memory did pop to mind however my next thought was what if there weren’t any signs at all? How weird would that be, could that even be possible? I’m talking Twilight Zone now imagine the episode it takes place on a busy downtown street, there are no stop signs, no don’t go this way signs no store signs! No one would no what store was what, accidents would happen because cars didn’t know which way to go or where to stop. Yes you could have traffic lights but they are just flashing signs really but what about all the other signs we simply couldn’t do without them.
Alright that would never happen but it does make me realize that whether we realized it or not signs are 1) memorable with some having more of a lasting impression than others and 2) a lot of signs are necessary. When you see the word billboard does an image pop into your head about a particular one that you’ve seen? I bet it does! To this day I still recall the big billboard with Mark Wahlberg or Marky Mark as we went by then you know which one I mean the one of him in us his underwear lol but that sign like many just stick with you it’s the visual or it’s what it says if we didn’t have any signs it would sure be a boring world and a little risky crossing the street.
Hope you enjoyed my quirky post on signs 🙂 Feel free to comment below!
