Short-Take

Watch out

 

BY JAMIL KHAN

 

WHENEVER I pass any under-construction building, first I find out the warning signboards being erected on surroundings of the site for the safety of the passersby.

But during one such excursion at the Al Nahda area, I was surprised to see the signboards, “Warning – Car Park At Your On Risk” rather than to “OWN” risk.

When I pointed out the spelling mistake to one of my friends who was along me at that time, his response was ridiculous than suggestive.

He said if you understand what they (construction firm) want to convey then what is the worry. “No one will find out spelling mistakes when stopping under construction sites and risking their lives,” was his argument.
