On Humphrey Street behind Tesco is a sign for the London cycle network:

How thick does one have to be before you fail to notice this before putting it up? :-)

I noticed the other day that there is a new London Cycle Network sign at the Waterloo Road exit from Waterloo station. Unfortunately it directs people to the 'Southbank'.

The tendency to write South Bank as one word drive me mad (silly, I realise), and I just know that every time I pass by the sign (a couple of times a week at least) it will really irritate me!

"Advanced warning" of road closures always leaves me wondering what was wrong with the usual methods of warning.

...there's plenty more c**** in the cup.

No. The ones that haven't evolved as much as the advanced ones must have done.

There's also this gem where Waterloo Road meets St. George's Circus: (149kb)

I'd always imagined that signs were made by hooking up some sort of desktop design package to a big sign printing m/c. And I'd always imagined that a spellcheck function would be included as an essential tool.

Obviously not

Strange. In flat-pack world do you not have the word 'quite'? We do!

Anyway, you would complain about retarded warning.

If you continue to make posts of such crashing snobbery, you will be tried by the people's collective, found guilty of having a taste for walnut chippendale and old chintz, and condemned to hard labour shelf-stacking the aisles of Ikea!

I think both our worlds share "quite" mapmaker. Mine doesn't go in for "awfully" much, though.
