You know that every now and again I like to throw in some random stuff and nonsense for our mutual entertainment. My feeling is that there's enough doom and gloom to be found out there so in here, in Warrior Land, I like to keep it as bright, airy and light-hearted as possible. From time to time we may need to touch upon subjects of a more serious nature, but not today.
So a couple of weeks before we broke up for Easter I discovered some critical gaps in my knowledge. One of my students was preparing for her road theory test and had downloaded an app on her phone in order to practise the questions. I offered to lend a hand, convinced that 17 years of driving under my belt made me older, yes but also considerably wiser. Oh how wrong could a cocky Ginger Warrior be?? Imagine my shock, horror and utter embarrassment when I only managed to scrape a paltry 54%! My battered self-esteem (and pride) took a further blow when Holly informed me that to pass the theory test you need to answer 43 out of 50 questions correctly. That's a grand total of 86% which means I would have failed. Miserably.
My greatest stumbling block appeared to be the road signs. I've since looked them up and it's very easy and straightforward when the description is written underneath but we all know they don't come with descriptions on the roads!
The thing is, I had a sneaking suspicion that I wasn't alone when it came to my road-sign struggles and when Craigy Boy popped round for his dinner this evening my suspicions were confirmed - he was worse than me!
What about you, Warriors? How are your road-sign identifying skills? They can't be any worse than ours! Time to put them to the test...
Below are 10 signs you'd find dotted around the country. Simply write in the comment box at the bottom of the page what you think they represent. NO GOOGLING ALLOWED UNTIL AFTER YOU'VE POSTED YOUR ANSWERS! You're only cheating yourself... ;)
Just because these are UK specific signs there is no need to feel excluded! I'd be very interested to see what you make of our signs and I'm sure you have some that are similar.
Oh! And please feel free to come up with some of your own creative and interpretative responses! ;)
