So the rest of the world thinks our exit signs are stupid.
According to this article, some in the international community want everyone to use an international sign for exiting.
Here's the thing, if I was going to China, before I went, I would learn all emergency signals that I thought were relevant. If you see the same thing in Chinese over every single door in China....well, lets just say it doesn't take a brain surgeon to figure out what it means.
So for all of you who think it's stupid, comon' now, it's really not that hard to figure out a big, red sign with the same four letters next to every single public door in the country. My kids knew what EXIT meant at a very early age. But then again, they are genius'!
Now myself, I'm not that smart. I really have a hard time looking at pictures and immediately knowing what they mean.
Take the signs below. WTF are they talking about?
