As I sit waiting to hear from the Chrysler dealer that my keyless remote has arrived I have time to reflect on the mysteries of life. There was one mystery I continued to run across during my travels this summer and have just not been able to get my head around it. This is the result of many hours behind the wheel in the wide open spaces of the west where not a lot of concentration is required to keep Mel on the road and one has time to attempt to solve such mysteries. Since I haven't come up with a suitable answer I'm passing the question on to you, my readers, hopefully together we can solve this enigma.. And the question is, what is with the sign "caution guardrail damage ahead". Why is it important that I need to know this? Is this to alert me that if I'm planning to crash into a guardrail that I should find another one because this one has already been used? How come when they sent the crew out to spend half a day erecting signs, didn't they just have them go on and fix the guardrail while they were there. Seems like this approach could save the cost of the sign and a second trip out to the location for a crew to repair the damage. I'm thinking the same might apply to the sign that says "bump" or at least they could rate the bump from 1 to 10 so I would have some idea of how many dishes will come flying out of the cabinet if I don't slam on the brakes.
Well, now you know why it's dangerous for me to have time on my hands, but at least you have something to ponder while we are all trying to enjoy the good life.
