In the last few years, signs have started appearing at government offices instructing people on how to wash their hands. I wonder if there is any data that shows they work.
This morning, whilst cycling in the Carlington area, I noticed an ordinary street shaped in the usual crescent that is so common in the suburbs, had a “curve” sign posted before the turn in the crescent. Have we really got to the point where curves on crescents are going to be signed?
Then at City Hall this week for a meeting, I noticed bureaucrats have posted signs on how to drink from water fountains.
Still, none of these beat the recent bleatings by someone on a web discussion site that we need instructions on staircases to instruct people how to pass each other whether going up or down, who had the right of way, etc.
Somehow, it all seems so sad.
