What will they think of next…?

Padded Lamp Posts

Apparently padded lamp posts are being trialled in in Brick Lane, London,  due to the amount of people who have accidents by bumping into them whilst texting on their mobile phones. According the the report it’s “not their fault” and should be protected.

I’ve got an idea that could save the government millions of pounds. Instead of padding all the lamp posts, promote a campaign that encourages the wankers not to walk around with their eyes glued to their ‘phone screens and instead actually take responsibility for their own well-being by looking where they’re going! Now, there’s a novel idea for you!

    ROFL That is just funny. I say if they run into the post…then they deserved it. If someone ran a car into the post because they weren’t paying attention it would be their fault…why is this any different…or it is because they aren’t really damaging the post, only their big heads…

    That is the greatest picture! I personally do not text, because I think it’s just a symptom of our society’s laziness and reluctance toward real interaction…but that’s a whole other issue. LOL! Now if they can create a lane on the roadways just for texters, then no one would have to be scared tp drive!
