I have the sense we’ve talked about this before, but I was confronted with it anew when my darling fiancée and I went to see Twelfth Night on Sunday. Whatever building is at 5th and E (all I could positively identify was a McDonald’s) has sprouted jersey walls all around it and that’s removed a lot of available parking, forcing me to park all the way out on 3rd and E.
Where it was mostly clear, excepting a few cars. The cause, no doubt, was these signs. I’ve always viewed them as meaning from 7am at the start to 7pm at the end. After all, if a store was going to be open from Noon to 5pm, Monday through Thursday, you wouldn’t write “from Noon Monday through 5pm Thursday,” would you?
Since I escaped without a ticket I can only assume I was either the last one slated to be towed or that interpretation was correct. What would be a better way to communicate this information, do you think?
