Decided to stop at the local grocery store last night on my way home in historic Fredericksburg Virginia. When I pulled into the parking lot I saw a sign that caught my attention. It read:
I paused for a few moments and pulled into another slot.
On my drive home I debated whether or not I should have parked nearer the entrance to the store than I had. Certainly, the people who put up that sign (and there were several more like it) did not mean what they had writtten.
Is there such a thing as a parents without children? Parents Without Partners yes, but parents without children?
Taken literally, my son, parent to my 6' 6" 310 lb grandson(who is one helluva football player), could park there if he took the lad to shop with him. Hopefully, he would not try to stuff him into the shopping cart (would we ever hear a misbehaved child then).
But here I was, a father of five and a grandfather of 13, not taking the instructions literally. What the heck, what are a few steps to someone like me.
Guess I will add this to my list of humorous signs I have seen.
