so when i was driving to amastinkinrillo monday, i saw something when leaving the Safety Rest Area that made me whip out the tough-love stationery, previously reserved for JJ Abrams and the BAD ROBOT.
Hello, my name is SarahK, and I’m a Texan; however, I may have to resign my spot as a Texan and move as quickly as I can to another state. ANY other state (except California or New York).
Now, I’ve only lived here for all 27 years of my life, yet I seem to know the one SUPER-BIG NO-NO that you people in the Department of Transportation haven’t seemed to grasp. I mean, seriously, is there ANY EXCUSE for this in the entire world? I think not.
What, you ask, is my lengthy and thus-far pointless rant about? Brace yourself and try to keep up, ok, TxDOT? Ok. There are signs when you leave these Safety Rest Areas that are meant to serve as a friendly reminder that you are, indeed, in Texas. However, for me they only serve as an instant-reflex covering of the eyes, because do you know what these friendly sayings say?
“YA’LL COME BACK”.
WHAT IS THAT???
Now, I hate to complain about a problem without offering a solution, so here’s my advice to you, TxDOT.
IF YOU’RE GOING TO PUT A GREETING ON A SIGN IN TEXAS
USING THE TEXAN/SOUTHERNER FORM OF EXPRESSION…
PUT THE APOSTROPHE IN THE CORRECT PLACE!!! YOU’RE REPRESENT’N TEXAS, YOU MORONS!
