Line painting - Fail

Spotted in the news:-

"A council has admitted workers painted a warning sign outside a nursey school despite it closing 10 years ago.
The yellow zig-zag "school keep clear" sign has been painted in Aberdeen at St Peter's Nursery in The Spital"
You'd think it was a bit careless, wouldn't you? Especially as

"The work - costing about £200 - was carried out despite the building being boarded up."

"An Aberdeen City Council spokeswoman said: "Staff have been instructed to check orders for all outstanding works to ensure they are still required."
Outstanding work?

Ten years!

Mrs R shakes her head and mumbles into her coffee.
