Signs Up

I'm posting this entry (well, aside from this introductory sentence) exactly how I wrote it around 6:30 yesterday evening, so the timely references aren't going to be entirely accurate.

One pet peeve of mine is that I don't like the prominent display of outdated signs. Like, I passed a restaurant today with a sign outside saying something like, "Lunch with Santa December 15." Now, I can see their not thinking to change the sign right away, but it's been over two weeks. Don't you think they would have updated it by now? Or is the lunch with Santa going to be on December 15th THIS year as well, and they're just getting a head start? Maybe they don't have much else to put up there, although you'd think they could announce their specials or something. I don't know. It's not really a big deal, but it bugs me. Along the same lines, I'm also not sure why people insist on getting bumper stickers that are guaranteed to be outdated in a few months. I'm thinking mostly of election-related ones. Surely these people are intending to keep their cars for some time after the relevant election, right? Not that I can really understand the point anyway, since I don't think anyone's vote has ever been affected by reading a bumper sticker.

I'm kind of hungry, and my lunch break won't be for another two and a half hours. Well, some people here call it a dinner break, but I tend to think of a meal that you eat on a break from work as lunch, regardless of the time of day. But then, I never really eat on a regular schedule, so it's more or less irrelevant. And I COULD take it earlier, but I don't like coming back to more work than I left, you know?
