• Dear Sidewalk Sign Holder,

    This isn’t for those of you earning a living swinging a sign, inviting me to a HUGE BLOWOUT SALE – 70% OFF!!! – no… you amuse me, especially when you dance to the music in your head. Believe me, I enjoy the show.

    This also isn’t to the homeless (or lying, not-so-homeless) person holding a cardboard sign asking for work, when what you really want is beer money. I typically have sympathy for you, although I’m also skeptical of the validity of your story.

    No, this is for you, the crazy person holding a sign to shout your opinion at me through written word:

    Google Trash.
    What does that even mean?

    End the war.
    Which one?

    Jesus saves.

    But why do I need to see it while I (impatiently) wait for the light to change? It’s not that I don’t have an opinion about these things. It’s just that I don’t care to shout them from the street corner.

    Instead of waving your sign in my face, why don’t you spend your time helping in a homeless shelter, working in a soup kitchen, or volunteering for the Red Cross? You know, something that is actually HELPFUL.

    So, next time you wave your sign in my face, don’t be surprised if you get a sign back…
