Mad About It Mondays: What Part of “NO” Do You Not Understand?!

Mad About It Mondays

Welcome to Mad About It Mondays, a place where you can let loose and vent. Instead of posting that vague or passive aggressive Facebook status, join me and get that thing that’s been grinding your gears off your chest. You can find link up information at the bottom of this post. If you’re interested in playing catch up, you can find my last two MAM posts here and here.

Do Not Enter

What part of “Do Not Enter” is so difficult for some drivers to understand?!

I regularly shop at the Costco in my area. Costco, you might be thinking, a place for suburban families to spend their Saturday afternoons feasting on samples and spending entirely too much money on large quantities of batteries, milk at a very convenient price, and more cheese than you ever realized existed. Costco, you might be thinking…the place I would like to spend the apocalypse. But nay, I tell you, Costco is a hot bed for law breakers.

Our Costco happens to have a one way entrance for customers coming in from the East with a very clear “DO NOT (FREAKING) ENTER” sign for drivers who are already in the parking lot and yet, these derelicts drive through the one way street anyway. WHAT?! It’s horrible. It’s dangerous. It must be stopped.

Now you might be asking yourself why this is such a big deal. Well, I’ll tell you why…if someone is going to break such a simple, easy to follow law, what are they doing behind closed doors? Here is what I imagine these people are doing in their spare time:

Dirty, rotten scoundrels they are.

Dear Drivers Who Go The Wrong Way On The One-Way Street At Costco,

Here’s a little tid bit for you…you are not above the law. I’m not entirely sure why you can’t be bothered to drive the extra half block to the correct exit at Costco but, come on…really?! Most of you have children in the car. What kind of example are you setting for them? That laws are meant to be broken? No wonder we have a society of hooligan delinquents. Your behavior is a slippery slope. What’s next? Illegal U-Turns? Jaywalking?! Not paying the parking meter?!?! For the love of all that is holy, please stop. In case you’re not aware of what “Do Not Enter” means…

Don’t enter.

Do not come in.

Go the other way.

Find another route.


This is against the law.

You’re going to hit other cars.

Please, do us all a favor and start following the rules. While you’re at it, put those carts back. It’s rude to leave them in the parking space next to you.
