Signs, Signs, Everywhere Signs
So, I leave work for lunch today, debating in my head whether or not I should just stop somewhere and get a burger, instead of going home. Almost immediately, some guy runs a stop sign at the Post Office and almost T-bones me. So, I’m trying to calm myself down about that and decide I just want to go home and eat a little something while sitting on my own couch. Sounded really good at the time. Still, I’m muttering, "Can"t people read signs?,” under my breath.
Well, as I’m pulling up to my driveway, I see something propped up on my mailbox. It’s a political sign supporting some candidate for whom I’ve never shown any support. Upon noticing that, I see another one for this candidate BESIDE MY DRIVEWAY facing me and only me. I’m the only person who drives down my driveway, so I’d be the only person to see it. The sign on my mailbox was facing the wrong way to be seen by traffic, as well. It was clear the target was me. There were no other political signs for this candidate within a mile, that I saw, and only one I’ve even seen between where I work and where I live. For two to crop up, pointing at me, seems too much for coincidence.
So, now I’m thinking either someone is playing a joke, stealing political signs and putting them on my driveway/mailbox, or there is someone trying to give me a message. The thing is, I don’t recall ever taking a stand on this candidate. It’s odd. If it had been a candidate to whom I had been in outspoken opposition, maybe it would be slightly funny, but I really don’t even know the guy. I know he hasn’t done a very good job, but I’ve never really taken him up as an issue.
At first, I thought maybe one of my neighbors tried to put them as close to me as possible without actually touching me, but they had no signs in their yard at all, that I could see. I suspect it was a joke, but I don’t think sign stealing is cool or funny, as we had so many of our Ron Paul signs stolen that were legally placed. Stealing these and illegally placing them in front of a residence is just kind of odd. I intend to let the person who the signs were advertising know about it, and get them to come take the signs. Those things cost good money, I should know.
