This letter is to bring awareness to some people about what I (and I’m sure others) consider an eyesore.
People, when you have a yard sale, please, please, take down your signs when it’s over!
[The signs] bother me in two ways: One, they should be considered littering; and two, they’re distracting and misleading to those of us who enjoy spending a Saturday morning visiting yard sales.
At least when you put up a sign, [include] the date. [A sign] that reads "Yard Sale Sat.," or, even worse,"Yard Sale Today!" doesn't do much good if it was the previous week.
My complaint isn't just [about] yard sale [signs], but election signs, lost pet signs, and let’s not forget [signs for] birthday parties. Nothing is more attractive than a weathered piece of pink paper and a couple of wilted balloons taped to a stop sign.
