observation


There's a house in my neighborhood with a sign just like this

Instead of putting it at the end of their driveway
they place it practically in the middle of the street

When I see it...
I get this uncontrollable urge to
Hit the gas - floor it up to 95 - and completely obliterate it
then throw my truck into reverse and run over whatever scraps remain

Is that wrong?

If its in the street, its fair game.

There's a house on my street that does the same thing!
I think those signs are ridiculous, getting an urge to run them over is completely normal.

Slow children shouldn't be outside unattended, anyway. I say, forget the sign, go up to the door and slap the shit out of who ever opens it.

It reminds me of "Baby On Board" signs.

I think you'd be justified in ramming it.

Do it! Have your husband film it!

Where's the sport in that? The moving targets are worth more points.

It's only wrong if you leave tire tracks on the lawn.

I have to put 4 of those freakin things out in the driveway of the school I work at every day....
Take the thing, take it home and put some rancid kind of liquid in the bottom parts that keep it from blowing away...take it back.Put a note on it saying someone left this at my house you'd better keep it inside from now on....

As a proud parent, I wave my fist at people speeding down our street.

I don't think it does shit, though.
