And these people work for us?

The English is simple enough to lorry drivers – but the Welsh reads “I am not in the office at the moment. Please send any work to be translated.”

An idiot emailed for a Welsh translation of the road sign and got an Out Of Office bounce.

That went up under the English version which stopped lorries going down a road near a supermarket.

The sign went up and all seemed okay until Welsh speakers noticed the fuck-up.

Oh good grief. Apart from supporting dying languages at great public (that’s you and me) expense, if we must waste cash then can’t we at least waste it efficiently?

And it’s on Pant-y-Blawd Road. No sniggering at the back about the Panty bit.
