While driving in our car, I asked my father what the "Falling Rock" signs meant. He went on to tell a story about an Indian boy who was sent out into the woods to retrieve an animal for food to prove his manhood. The boy never returned.
My father explained that whenever I see that sign it means there has been a sighting of the young Indian boy named Falling Rock.
The sad part is that I thought I saw him a couple of times. Hey, I was young, alright?

I used to see anti-littering signs that read "Littering is Unlawful". Maybe because I didn't know the word unlawful, I always read it as "Littering is Unawful", which confused me for years!

I used to believe that the arrows on the road for going straight ahead actually meant up. I spend much of the time in the car looking for cars flying up and wondering why ours didn't fly!

Once I was able to read, when traveling in the car, I would see numerous signs on the highway for a "Frontage Road". I looked and looked, and for the life of me, could not find that dang Frontage Road! My dad later told me that the frontage road was the same as the service road.

When my family used to drive to my aunt's house, there would always be this billboard with a pool that I was convinced looked like a shell. with a toothpick that had an olive stuck to it sticking out of the middle. Every time we passed it, I would scream "SHELL!!!" My parents had no idea what I was talking about and one day they took me to a Shell gas station and said "THAT IS A SHELL."

You know those blue signs they have for roads under construction, the ones with the shovel and the hardhat? When I was little, I thought the shovel/hardhat thing was a monster and if I looked at the picture it would come to life and would make the road drop out from underneath our car... i would hide under my blanket in my car seat until we got home.

My Grampie used to tell us when we were very little that the sign on the road that says "Road Narrows" was a warning of little birds that peck your tires, so watch out. My cousin believed this until he was 15 and in driver's ED.

On the interstate some exits say "Exit Only." I used to believe that meant there was no entrance ramp back on to the interstate. If one wanted to return to the interstate s/he would have to go to the next entrance/exit. In other words, it was only an exit.

I grew up in the country where there are a lot of dirt roads and some tough roads that are paved. I used to see the yellow street sign reading not a 'through' street all the time. Except I though it advised that it was not a 'tough' street

We used to vacation in Hilton Head, South Carolina. And, I was the youngest of 7 kids, so I knew all the big-kid words at a very young age. Well, you can understand my dismay and confusion when I used to see signs down in South Carolina that read: "S.C. Law: Please do not feed or molest the alligators" I could understand telling people not to feed the alligators, but I never imagined that people in South Carolina would MOLEST a poor alligator!

when we were young, our family would vacation in Wisconsin at a resort on a lake. While traveling on one of the gravel road leading to the lake there was a sign that said Honky Dory, and we looked and saw a road grader. Until we were older and know the difference, we always thought a road grader was call a Honky Dory!

I used to believe that if a car drove over the double yellow lines to the other side, something would come up from the lines and stop the car and put it back on the right side of the road because you couldnt drive on the other side.

I used to believe that when you came to an intersection and saw a "ONE WAY" sign that you had to turn and go that way. I never understood why my dad would ignore those signs.

You know the Dead End sections of streets? I used to be so afraid of those sections. Usually when I went to one there was the woods, and I think I was scared of the woods when I was little, but it looked scary to me. I used to think a monster would come out from the woods or that the people in the car with me would die.

Don't take me to the dead end!!!!!!!!!!
