For Signs Of Stupidity, The Buck Stops Here

(We are responsible for the placement of traffic signs. I get this call from a resident where we just placed a deer crossing sign.)

Me: “Hello, [Government Office]. How may I help you?”

Resident: “Yes, you just placed a deer crossing sign down the street from my house.”

Me: “That’s right.”

Resident: “Well, I am not happy with its location. Don’t get me wrong, a lot of deer cross the roads in my neighborhood.”

Me: “What is your concern about its location?”

Resident: “I’d like you to move it down the road a few yards. It would be a lot more convenient if the deer knew to cross there. Can you do that before they get used to it where it is?”
