The Most Politically Incorrect Street Sign in Greater Boston

Hurry up, deaf person. You're slowing up traffic. What, are you stupid?

The most politically incorrect street sign in Greater Boston has to be this one on Pleasant Street in Arlington that says "Slow Deaf Person".

Of course, by the time you have read "Slow Down for Person with a Severe Auditory Impairment Who Lives Just Around the Next Bend in the Road" you have run the deaf person over. And by the way you Prius owners, to you we are all deaf people. When you are running on batteries we never hear you coming.

When I slowed down and stopped to take a picture of the sign, a passing jogger looked at me slowing down and looked at the sign and then asked me if I was OK. I cupped my hand to my ear and pretended not to hear what she said. She, by the way, had in her earbuds and was listening to her iPod.
