Bank Temperature

Saturday, October 30, 2004

Why is it that when I am driving and want to know what time it is, the bank clock is always showing the temperature instead.

And I stare...and wait...and crane my neck to continue looking at the sign while my car is whizzing merrily along. Will the digital numbers change to the time in time, I ask myself?

Invariably, I also always ask myself...how friggin long do the bank people (or sign makers) think it takes me read "44" anyway? Since the sign is provided as a friendly service, I would think that someone would actually make it
f-r-i-e-n-d-l-y. Maybe they want me to stop and stand outside of their bank to see the time; or I could drive around the block a few times to increase my chances...and waste precious time.

Best scenario: Leave the blasted thing on the temperature, and blare the time out by loudspeaker so I can keep my eyes on the road.
