What is Wrong With This Photograph? Part 196

This residential street in a quiet neighborhood may not be without chaos: someone must have taken the Keep Left traffic sign — which is rather rare and unusual in the United States — too literally and crashed into a light pole, causing it to lean.

An orange pylon was placed there to apparently warn everyone else of the serious danger here.

Favorite answer by derek: “The conventional way is to drive to the right of the center divider, but this is an odd left. It seems that someone hit the light post, too.

“The lack of paint on the road suggests this is not the UK. It looks like the US.”

Favorite comment by Jim F.: “Hmmm…where’s the center divider/median on what looks like a fairly narrow street winding through a residential area?”

Once again, Ruby Tuesday commits a careless error in one of its advertisements: in the circle on the left in the image is the text “$7.99 until 4PM”; but the text claims that “Until 4pm – Load up on our Endless Garden Bar for only $6.99.”

How much do you want to bet that $7.99 is the correct price and not $6.99?

Favorite answer by Thomas Richard Potter.: “The photo claims the price before 4 PM is 7.99, the text under the photo advertises the price at 6.99 before 4 PM…I’m wondering where that extra dollar went?”

Favorite comment by Jim F.: “If “Endless” and “Entree” are being used synonymously here (which I’m pretty certain they are), diners should be prepared to argue for the advertised price of $6.99…on Wednesdays…until 4pm.”

An ordinary fly could not keep itself Off! of a can of product whose sole purpose is for a human being to kill it.

Some of the product in the can was already used; so some of its residue had to have been on the surface of the can where the fly was located.

Favorite answer and comment by Jim F.: “If that’s a ‘biting fly,’ it doesn’t seem to have gotten the message. (The label, which is hard to read, says the product ‘provides long lasting protection from mosquitoes, ticks, biting flies, gnats & chiggers.’)”

I have no idea what Hertz was attempting to say in the last part of the last sentence at the bottom of this advertisement. Exactly by when does the customer need to join as a member of the Hertz Gold Plus Rewards membership program in order to take advantage of this offer?

Favorite answer by Jim F.: “Mmm…what, exactly, is ‘M! r. % 1.*’? And, technically speaking, does one really benefit ‘…from day one’ if rewards only kick in ‘…the next time you rent 2+ days’?”

Favorite comment by Lee: “When hiking in the wilderness, one does not usually see transparent rental cars parked sideways blocking the trail. Also ‘M! r. % 1.* looks wrong, but that is technically not part of the photo.”

Someone apparently installed the sign — which forbids drivers from conducting a U-turn on this street — upside down.

Taxpayers actually paid this person to incorrectly install this sign.

Favorite answer by Jim F.: “Maybe the worker installing the sign thought s/he was in the UK, driving in reverse…. Anybody else want to see what the sign on the other side is?”

Favorite comment by Jackson: “The good thing is if you get pulled over, you can argue you did nothing wrong ”
