Walking to work this morning, there appears to be a large excavation going on underneath the Bill Bryson library. The gossip is that someone during the initial construction phase of the extension, accidentally inserted a section of sewage pipe the wrong way around which has led to backups and flooding problems. Sounds urban legend-ish to me but you never know.
Anyway, there is a large sign around the enclosed area reading “T.A.K.E.P.R.I.D.E.”
This acrostic is meant to encourage site safety.
However, my eye was drawn to this section.
Everyone, it seems, except grammarians.
