Dumber Than Even I Thought Possible

Redundant signage. Which bonuses as a trip hazard.

I didn't sleep well last night, so I was generally stumbling around bleary-eyed at work this morning. Well, all day, if I'm being entirely honest with you, but you get the idea. Thus, it required that I walk past something a couple times before it registered what it was, in fact, that I was looking at. What I saw was the sign that you see here, to your right.

In the event that you also need to look at it a few times in order to determine what it is that I'm going on about, this is a warning sign about the alcohol waste cabinet. Sitting in front of the alcohol waste cabinet. Which is already covered with a plethora of warning stickers, decals, and indications stating that it's an alcohol waste cabinet. Let that sink in for a moment.

Where I work, people are so staggeringly dim that they need redundant layers of warnings in front of a thing to ensure they know what it is. This thing being a thing that everyone in the building has to utilize daily at some point, because everyone has to dump their dirty alcohol at least once. Since, you know, we make ostensibly clean parts in a filthy death trap.

Asking around, I determined that this redundant signage was added by overpaid salary pukes while us mere hourly plebians were out on our holiday break at the end of the year. What I want to know is whose idea it was to spend money on such inanity, instead of apparently giving the guy who doesn't know how to read in our building a gentle talking to.

I imagine they got a raise for that sign. Which is another reason the company is doing so poorly.
