Is this fair? Does this sign indicate there is a divorced couple nearby? No, humans! This is a poignant Zen sign. A rare example of homo sapiens sensitivity. This is a mature recognition of the fact that sometimes things go wrong, relationships fail.
So what happened? What is the barrier separating this couple? Was there an affair? Does he have a gambling habit? Does she have a shoe fetish? Whatever the cause, it’s nice to see you humans acknowledge the fact that you’re less than perfect.
George, my fish-whisperer human companion, informs me that whenever you see such a sign there is always a little room nearby where you can go and reflect on what went wrong.
