Where do you want this contractor to go? 

 silly parking lot arrows


I was walking through a parking lot and noticed these direction arrows, I don’t really understand where the arrows are sending people. It seems that I’m supposed to drive back to the curb. I know that the arrows are to help maintain order and direction. But looking at these arrows, I have to ask…

Hi Tom, This clearly shows that whoever put the arrows there had a sense of humor. On a busy day, I would bet there is someone just sitting there thinking about there choices. Too funny!

This might have been a joke, but dealing with people for all these years, I'm afraid that it was just a bad mistake by someone that wasn't paying attention.  There's a lot of that going around these days.

Hi Tom,

 With all the cutbacks going on, I guess they hired a crew who didn't know what they were doing. Yes are people supposed to drive over the curb. Some poor person might get stuff on the curb or have to go get their car re-aligned after going down the curb!

I'm thinking in was on the drawings, and since it was, it got painted. 

What did you say about not paying attention?  :)

Thanks Doug.

I'm glad I didn't follow the arrows in my truck, it would have taken a half hour to turn and follow the second arrow out Kristin.

That is pretty funny, I would be confused in a parking lot with those signs. Thanks for the laugh.

Talk about 'following directions' and not asking the boss any questions.

"Hmmm, you sure you want an arrow pointing at the curb 10-20 feet away Boss?"
