is that what they’re calling them these days…?

official names crack me up sometimes…

you know these things?

i always called them “switchbacks” because they make you walk back and forth much like “switchbacks” on a hiking trail.  anyway….  i found out this week they they are called “stanchions” and fall in the category of “public guidance systems.” 

public guidance systems!! 

for the love…

  1. Andrea, you crack me up!!! That is hilarious!!! C’mon, that’s first-year SovGrace stuff! ;o) Or maybe it’s cuz we live in a city of public guidance systems (Walt Disney World, etc)… course you wouldn’t know cuz you’ve never visited me. However, I am not bitter…
    Oh, here’s an assignment…what does the formation ‘pod’ look like for set-up?

  2. Hmm, I always just referred to them as “those ropey recoiling thingies that keep you in line.”  Of course, seeing as “thingy” is one of my favorite words, I’ve rarely seen the need to learn technical terms for anything.
