    Re: Easily confused by some signs

    I always annoy my family on long drives by exclaiming 'HAY!' when we pass a field with bales or rolls of hay. After many years, they still alwys ask, "What?". Then they usually just groan as I point to the hay.

    My friend used to have season tickets to the Pacers games at the old Market Square Arena. The guy next to him would always make his own version of "The HEy Song"

    Da-da-dan-dan-da-HEY
    Da-da-dan-dan-da-CORN
    Da-da-dan-dan-da- SOY

    people would look at him funny and he'd say "What? what else do we grow in Indiana."

    Re: Easily confused by some signs

    I still have memories of when I was a young lad, and I started laughing at a street sign. My mom asked me what was so funny, and I said "Why would angels need parking?" She starts laughing, and says "No, that's angle parking." Apparently I wasn't the best reader back in the day.
    If you can't build a winning team with that core a fire-sale isn't the solution. Selling the franchise, moving them to Nashville and converting GABP into a used car lot is.

    Re: Easily confused by some signs

    The other day this happened.

    Phone rings and since I don't recognize the number I answer with my business name.

    Caller: "Oh, I got the wrong number."

    Me: "No, you got the one you dialed."

    Caller: "Huh?"

    There is one other person in the world that shares my name. I received a call for him at work today.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    Before I eat a salad, I'll tell my wife "Let us eat this" (lettuce, eat this)

    She didn't think it was funny the first time.

    I always point out things I find humorous when I'm driving. Unfortunately people who are with me don't usually get my humor. I like to think it's above the average intellect. All this sign misreading reminds me of a Zach Galifianakis joke:

    I had dyslexia as a child.... I use to write about it in my dairy.

    Every time I see the title, I think this is going to be a thread about woman troubles. Good luck interpreting those signs.

    My wife wanted to spend some quality time with me on Friday. I got home late an hour late, at 8:45pm. She was laying in bed, wearing a hooded sweatshirt, sweat pants, and had fallen asleep, snoring, I went to check on her, and the magazine was stuck to her face.

    I interpreted that sign to mean, "go away".
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    I guarantee that if I were in that same scenario with my girlfriend, it would mean I did something wrong and that I should have done something very differently that included buying her flowers and/or complimenting her on something I didn't even notice that she changed about herself.
