    What frustrated you today?

    For me it was trying to avoid the pesky A-boards scattered like land mines on the busy pavement. Those effin' things outght to be banned! They are a literal pain to we blind and visually impaired people, as well as an obstacle that mobility impaired people need to negotiate their way around. Sweep the lot off the public pavement I say! And fine any anti-social businesses that put them out until they get the message and stop!
    So let the raucous sleigh bells jingle,
    Hail our dear old friend kris kringle,
    Driving his reindeer across the sky.
    Don't stand underneath when they fly by.

    You probably call them something else.

    Yes, I know only too well what you mean about daily frustrations! I wish I was able to see more and do more before my moley eyes decided that they'd done enough for the day.

    LOL! They simply must be A-boards. Thanks for educating us.

    EBay lists one as "Pavement Advertising Display Aboard Double Sided Folding Chalkboard Signs."

    This company simply calls it a chalkboard sign:

    I have one.
