Signs of Illiteracy?

Signs in the Timaru Botanic Gardens, South Canterbury, New Zealand. OK, the signwriter stuffed up - twice - but wouldn't someone on the gardens staff have noticed and sent them back for correction? Apparently not, as I first spotted these errant signs three years ago and they're still in place.


  1. Hmm! makes you wonder, doesn't it? I suppose they are thinking that it would be too expensive to make new signs.

    1. I guess so, Jennifer, but if the gardens management had noticed the mistakes when the signs were received from the signwriter, I would have thought they would be returned for correcting at the signwriter's expense. Ah, well - if they're happy to look stupid....
