I am sure it is all very horrific for the people involved, but I couldn’t help but to laugh at the following news article:
[…] Reportedly, the driver of a charter bus carrying a high school girls’ softball team decided to casually follow the soothing turn-by-turn directions that were being emitted from the nearby GPS unit rather than actually noticing the enormous clearance sign on the overpass ahead. As you can likely guess, the 11-foot, 8-inch-high vehicle plowed right into the 9-foot bridge — which was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1982 — though somehow everyone on board escaped without any major injuries. Oddly enough, the driver apparently isn’t alone in chipping away at the landmark, as a local even mentioned that “large trucks hit the bridge every two weeks or so,” but couldn’t resist noting that “this [instance was] by far the worst.”
Yah, I’m sure it happened many times before all over the world, bla bla bla. Some people I know use GPS a lot, but somehow I just can’t get the hang of it. Which doesn’t really matter to me, because as horrible as they are, KL/PJ signboards still work… even though they take you round and round and round, but hey, you get there eventually, no? 😀
The thing that tickled my funny bone was the accompanying photo:
The expressions and poses of the two policemen are just classic. So whoever can come up with the best quips… well I have nothing to offer you. I could pimp your blog if you want though.
