At what angle of inclination must we begin reading from bottom to top?

And who the hell made that decision?

Consider a sign, any sign. Here's an example:



How far can the sign be leaned back before it apparently has to be repainted and we have to read it from bottom to top? e.g.:



I see examples of this on almost a daily basis.

On a bad day it really irritates me.

On a really bad day it really pisses me off!

Has anyone else noticed this?

Does it ever really irritate or piss you off?

I haven't even left my house yet this morning, I woke up grumpy and just thinking about this has me really pissed off already!

I may just stay in the house all day.

It's raining.

This explains a lot.




BTW, you're apparently so angry you have difficulty expressing yourself. If a sign is leaned back far enough, it will either be lying on the ground... or upside down, right?

Finally someone askeths (man, it's hard to even TYPE that without lisping!) me the cause of my righteous indignation!

Alas, 'tis but this, which travesty of grammatical construction I have long since accepted as an irksome detail of my life that I shall have to continue to endure, which feat has become even more irksome since my fair maiden (current aqueeze), blurted out in a shrill scream "AHEAD STOP!", causing me to look at her (more or less aghast) whilst proceeding to run a sign directing me to stoppeth and mowing over a trailer full of Pakistani laundry hampers hauled by a broken down peekop truck crammed with unfriendly blokes of Canadian (of all places) descent, thus ruiningeth that day!



Perhaps I'm being a bit unreasonable...but I'm told that's in keeping with my general demeanor.
