My sister worked on a road crew one summer. It was part time, nights and weekends so she could work around her full time job.
She was just holding the stop/slow sign.
She had some woman once lean out her window and ask my sister if it bothered her that the sign said "men working" when she was a woman?
My Sister: No, not at all.
Woman: Why not?
My Sister: Because I am not a moron.
Yeah, she has no problem stating her feelings/opinions directly, lol.
