If you work in marketing or brand teams or basically have to work with art teams, you know every instruction has to be specific to the last word. See, a lack of communication can result in a colossal waste of time and worse, humiliation on a much larger scale.
That said, I bet, no matter how badly you have messed up at work, you haven’t messed up like Bengaluru Police, who seem to have been encouraging stalking with this badly made street sign.

Naturally, this led to some commotion on Twitter.

Traffic signs shouldn’t be witty, or even need a copywriter. They should be mere instructions literally stated without any puns etc. What is this Indian obsession with making (bad) slogans for everything?— PK (@ThisIsMcNulty) October 21, 2021
