Another Helpful Sign in Florida

By Mark D. Roberts | Saturday, March 14, 2009

Yesterday I put up the “how to wash your hands in the restroom” sign from Disney World. That’s not the only helpful sign I saw on my recent trip to Florida. Take the following example from a neighborhood in Orange County, Florida, just outside of Orlando:

I’m sure it’s helpful to know where a sewer line is buried. But I wonder for whom the warning is intended. Would anybody read “Sewer Line Buried Here” and think, “Great! I think I’ll have swig!”? It seems to me that the identification of the pipe as “sewer line” rather implies “not for drinking.” Yes? Or am I missing something here? Do buried gas lines in Florida have signs that read: “Gas Line Buried Here . . . Not for Breathing”?

Thanks for your willingness to make a comment. Note: I do not moderate comments before they are posted, though they are automatically screened for profanities, spam, etc., and sometimes the screening program holds comments for moderation even though they're not offensive. I encourage open dialogue and serious disagreement, and am always willing to learn from my mistakes. I will not delete comments unless they are extraordinarily rude or irrelevant to the topic at hand. You do need to login in order to make a comment, because this cuts down on spam. You are free to use a nickname if you wish. Finally, I will eventually read all comments, but I don't have the time to respond to them on a consistent basis because I've got a few other demands on my time, like my "day job," my family, sleep, etc.
