Pointing Out The Pointless

I dig this sign at the local post office by my house. Its all by itself at the end of an open field just south of the main building. Its as if someone put it there to prove that irony exists in the world.
Its supposed to warn you about the the massive metal storm drain cover or rather the bottomless pit it covers up. Feeling the need to flex my free will, I tried to move the cover but it wouldn't budge and nothing short of a winch was going to lift that thing. Irony aside, this type of sign is what I would scientifically categorize as Stupid. Its primary function is apparently to draw attention to something that if not publicized wouldn't pose any danger. Brilliant!
Which brings me to one of the harder lessons I've learned in life. Under no circumstances, no matter what hope you have been given, or what lies you have been told, should you ever underestimate the idiocy of the Post Office.
