Building Signs Only A Nerd Can Love

PIC-0004The sign lives inside one of the buildings here on the Microsoft campus, and to me it’s awesome for all the wrong reasons.

I am sure that there is an argument to be made that this sign does in fact make sense.  The numbers progress, sort of.  Perhaps the person who put this together has never had to actually walk inside of a building and find a cube or office.  It’s entirely possible that they simply hate people altogether.  Whatever the justification, I don’t get it.  I was staring at this sign for way too long trying to figure out where I needed to go.

  • I made the suggestion to HR long ago that moving to an Ave/St system would save Microsoft millions of dollars a year by enabling people to not waste time running in circles around buildings and staring in puzzlement at such signs. It apparently went into a black hole.
