Allegan Residents Quick To Point Out Spelling Error on New Road Sign
Ok, whoever painted this needs to go back to SCHOOL!
Let me start this off by saying Allegan is my hometown so of course it holds a special place in my heart. I also attended Allegan Public Schools which earned me the right to poke fun at their expense!
Us Allegan residents got a good laugh when Evangelina Tange recently shared a photo to the Allegan County Informed Facebook group saying,
Just because it’s funny…had to stop and take this pic...the other day. Whoever re-painted this needs to go back to school
Oh the irony that a sign painted on the road to advise drivers of a nearby school is in fact, misspelled.
Well misplaced, technically. Check it out below:
Evangelina said workers had recently come to re-paint the faded road sign and were unaware of the error until she notified the City of Allegan. Unfortunately for us, the sign snafu has already been corrected-- but not before we all got a good chuckle out of it!
Here's what other Allegan residents had to say:
- "Only in Allegan" - Samuel Berkin
- "They had one job" - Yaya Vargas
- "good ol public edukassion strikes again" - Casey Joe
- "The person who painted it probably has dyslexia" - Mitch Hapner
- 'I wonder if it was on purpose to get people to slow down?! If so, great strategy." - Sue Skiba
The road sign in question is located just past the intersection of Sherman St. and Vernon St. near West Ward elementary school but as I mentioned it was quickly corrected.
Also, what do you even call these signs painted on the road? It's a sign on the road, but is it technically a road sign? I've been searching the internet and have come up empty handed.
