Confusing Tourists again

Yahoo posters

Nice spot from
Thisisn't London:

"I was working in Epping today (argh). On my way home I spotted one of those Yahoo "Found" posters, with a purple arrow, that you occasionally put on your site; it said "Theydon Bois", the next station along the line.

The funny thing is, it was pointing in the wrong direction!

I took a (crap) photo on my phone, but the story is entertaining enough without it. And the poster has been seen by thousands of Eppingites.

Come on Yahoo poster putter up guys, at least get the direction right.

Just a reminder of the Yahoo ads we're talking about - yes, yes, I know it's Pimlico

I've been trying to get a picture of the one at Bank station pointing to Shadwell for ages and at least that is going in the right direction. But I must apologise for the lack of piccies from me recently. I have a new digital camera on my Xmas list as my current one is knackered. If anyone has any recommendations for small pocket sized one let me know - must have a microphone on it so that I can tape the buskers in the Waterloo and Shitty Line interchange.
