Florida Department of Transportation workers, who didn't notice they were installing a new road sign that had their state misspelled not once, but twice. The road sign read, Exit 344 Univ of North Flordia and Flordia State College South Campus. The road sign was manufactured in Arkansas and a spokesman said there will be no burden on the taxpayer and the company is fixing everything for free.
AND THEN THERE'S .....
A Wisconsin couple, who left their 9-month-old baby in a sweltering car for 20 minutes without air conditioning, while they shopped for sex toys. The 18-year-old father and 20-year-old mother told police they left the boy in the car because no one under the age of 18 is allowed inside the store. Police say the baby was crying and sweating profusely, but doesn't appear to have suffered any long-term effects. The couple are facing misdemeanor child-endangerment charges.
