Signs in Texas

‘This is NOT an Exit’. After all the time we spent in Spanish speaking countries, it was a little thrill to enter the United States and see the English language on display everywhere. No need to translate anymore, I could understand just about every word I saw without having to think about it.

‘Prudential Uniform Service’ on a passing truck. ‘BE CAREFUL. DON’T HIT THE WALL’ in the carpark. ‘EXIT’ ‘Parking’ ‘Feeding the birds is PROHIBITED’ Wonderful!

Even though it was in English, the large board calmly stating the words ‘BREAKFAST CHICKEN BISCUIT’ was one that I didn’t quite understand.
