You've seen them They're all over. Those unfortunate people that have to hold signs for furniture stores that are having close out sales or car dealers which are promoting their next scam. It's all very boring. Now, sign companies are changing that by training sign holders to become sign spinners. A sign spinners does just what the name implies, spin the sign. Sort of like a baton twirler, sign spinners stand on street corner and, one assumes, attract more attention than regular sign holder due to their acrobatic spinning of the signs. One problem....and it's a very, very big one. With all those signs spinning, how's a passing motorist supposed to read about what's being advertised?

Of course, like anything which is supposedly new, sign spinning is certainly not. It's been around for 20 years and is said to have been invented by Eventz Extraordinaire. We suppose if sign spinnings been around for 20 years, our wonderment as to whether the signs work or not is moot.

"Unfortunate people"? "promoting their next scam"? I earn $30 an hour as one of those unfortunate persons pushing the "next scam" but the funny thing is, I don't really feel unfortunate at all and the companies I spin for are well known reputable businesses in the local area. Someone please point me in the direction of the informed rants please?
