Child labor laws be damned!

I've taken up the habit of carrying my camera everywhere I go lately because I always see shit like this. The last time I worked at the mine in Virginia I spotted this sign posted at the entrance to the office. I saw it and asked the guy I was relieving if it was for real, because, well nobody is this stupid, are they?

"Yep, they getting pissed that everybody and their brother traipsin' in an outta here."

Ooooooooooooookay......

I'm just going to keep on my toes for any minors running around here. As soon as I see one, I'll make sure I termat them emideately and ast them to leave the premiss's!

I just hope I have the emergy to follow through with that job...

The scariest part of this is the guy who wrote this is in management. It would make me feel so safe and secure going down into the mine knowing this Einstein was responsible for my safety.

OMG !!! I can't even speak. My eyes are bleeding!!! The saddest part of that picture is the fact that there are TWO other signs hanging up right beside it with the correct spelling of "miner" on them....

Linny: I've taken up the habit of carrying it everywhere with me now... I never know what I'm going to find that's funny.

Kev: I got hooked on Phonics a few years ago. It was terrible. Had to go into rehab... Huge monkey on my back.

LMFAO! poor Massey...I cannot even form a comment, it was too sad but hysterical all the same or should I say histaircal?

Well umm ok. I don't really look down on people for their spelling capabilities. Anymore. I used to. But I'm better than that now. I think. All I can say is that if you know that spelling is an issue - umm... use spellcheck.

And also, why is it that a lot of people who do spell like that make SO much more money than I do? Now THAT does make me feel stupid.
