The eye of the beholder

Just the other day I was over at the scrap-metal business to dump some of my old iron. When leaving the site, I noticed both these signs and decided to take a couple of snaps with my iphone, since I was so intrigued by the normal-sized sign accompagnied by his or her bigger brother. A mere 20 seconds later the site responsible came up to me asking what the hell I was doing. Apparently he thought I was making a photographic inventory of the surrounding fences in order to find an easy entry to … well, you know.

And the 2 signs?

Well, once upon a time, when only the little normal-sized sign was present, lots of cars leaving the dump didn’t notice it and took a right turn. After a while the owner placed the bigger sign, but again, a few people still didn’t see it. I guess, they must be on the lookout for the ‘biggest’ sign out there by now …
