Saw this street sign today and I had to wonder, which is it?
Do not do this thing…
Or, do this thing that is written in bigger, bolder letters
…and, is listed last?
Consider, with all due respect to Gene Wilder and his version of Willy Wonka, the famous line. “Stop. Don’t. Come back.”
It was perfect.
What if you read or said it like this instead… “Stop, don’t come back!”
Which is it? “Do Not…JAY WALK” or is this road called, “Do Not Jay…Walk”. And if you really want me to do the thing, then put it last on the list, because chances are, that is all we heard.
