We talk about us, them, those people and in this case we talk about “that guy.” Who is “that guy” and why does he sometimes have a shorter life span than “other guys?” Let’s explore that is some detail.
I personally snapped this picture from a sign I saw near Cambria. My beautiful bride and I took a short trip to visit San Simeon to see Hearst Castle and Cambria and we happened on this sign near a large group of seals. Seals are massive animals who appear to be docile to the uninformed. The locals understand the sometimes aggressive nature of these animals and even after they explain what they have seen there are some people who discount what they hear.
This warning picture shows the result when someone hears the warning and then ignores the warning. Experience tells me the initial sign used to discourage people interacting with seals was the written word. Anyone who deals with the public understands the written word will suffice for most people and others needs additional interaction. This sign goes the extra mile in my opinion and tells the viewer to “not feed or touch the animals” and further states it’s “harmful and illegal.” The sign then speaks to the small percentage who were not reached with the initial signage by showing legs and a fishing pole underneath a massive animal. While the sign is quite graphic it gets the job done and might even save the life of “that guy!”
