Our neighborhood is classy. Oh, the people are fine, but the street signs are.....well....blog fodder. Or joke fodder. Because we have signs like this:
But this week I saw something that I found to be a bit disturbing. Maybe I'm just a prude. Maybe I'm out of touch with modern day teens. But I was deeply disturbed.
I was heading out of the neighborhood on one of the endless errands that has had to be run this week. I was stopped to turn and happened to notice two teenage girls standing by one of the signs. Judging from their faces, I would guess they were 13-14 years old. Judging by their appearance I would guess they were fresh off the Las Vegas Strip.
As I was watching, a woman (I'm assuming the mother of one of them) climbed out of the giant SUV parked (poorly) right near by. With a camera. To take a picture of two young girls posing with a "Speed Hump" sign. Not adults taking a picture of a tacky street sign to put on Facebook. But two children.
Maybe I'm old fashioned, but I thought that was trashy. Or maybe she was just thinking of their future and having them practice on that pole until they graduate to the next pole. So tell me...what do YOU think?!
