Five Guys

So I went to Five Guys for lunch yesterday and the sign on the door read:

"We are closed due to water outage.  We will not be open no later than 4pm."


I stared at that last sentence for a few minutes trying to decipher it's intended meaning.  Here was my thought process:


"Not be open," ok - that's equivalent to closed.  "We will be closed no later than 4pm."  No later than 4.  That means 4 or earlier.  Ok so we've got "We will be closed by 4 or earlier." But wait, they're already closed....


At that point I realized I had spent way too much time thinking about an obviously moronic sign, so I whipped out my phone hoping to capture the stupid in all it's glory.  However, right before I was going to snap the shot a dude came out of the store.


Dude - "Yea, we're closed."


Tom - "Yea, I know."


Dude - "Yea, you see that water break over there.  We don't got no water.  Can't open for business without it."


Tom - "Ok, I was just trying to figure out what your sign meant."


Dude - "Yea, we're closed.  Gonna try to be open at 4 but I dont know."


Tom - "Oh, so it's supposed to say closed UNTIL 4?"


Dude - "We're gonna try."


Tom - "You know your sign says 'not be open no later than 4' right?"


Dude - "Yea, we'll see.  Gotta get that water working."


Tom - "Ok, good talk."

you're totally right haha. It's like a double negative in that sentence which just messes everything up, but us being intelligent humans, we're able to adapt to people's mistakes and understand them :)
