A newly-painted road sign with a letter missing has caused much mirth on social media after a council quipped “someone is having a worse day than you”.
A photo of the “No Enry” sign, in Maldon, Essex, was posted on Facebook and Twitter by the district council, along with a face palm emoji and #oops.
People said it had “made their day”, asked what “poor ‘Enry” had done, and suggested staff were “on a T break”.
The sign is to be repainted, with the council adding: “We’re on’T To iT!”.
“If you’re having a bad day… just know that someone else is having a worse day than you!” Maldon District Council said.
In reply, a woman said “Just the sort of thing I would do”, while another praised the council for its “good response”.
“I think I heard a woman shout this at her child in Maldon once,” said another comment, while others joked: “Poor Enry, I feel for ‘im”.
The council, which has been asked to comment, was also urged to keep the sign “to give everyone a chuckle”.
