Things that make me smile #15 – Stop lights

I remember an old joke (they say it really happened) where someone parked right next to the sign “Fine for Parking Here” and when confronted he quipped “The sign clearly says that it is ‘fine’ to park here. In fact, by reading the sign I thought you were encouraging people to park right here.” Of course, the signs now a days are very clear – “No Parking”

A couple of days ago, Seth mentioned about Zig Ziglar‘s comment on stop lights. This joke actually is a great lesson on how we continue to use a few things in our lives even though they really don’t represent what they should.

“Stop lights should really be called ‘go’ lights. Because if you take them away, traffic stops”

— Zig Ziglar
