Mine would probably say: put me out of my misery. But that's another story. Today I want to show you what Rome's "Garden Service" van says. That's translated literally... probably more fitting is something like city landscaping or urban maintenance. In any case, I ran across one of their miniscule vans while walking home, and I found that it has a charming little message for all passersby. Take a look for yourself:
I'm environmentally-friendly: I run on methane and I don't pollute. BYE
So, I'm sure you can guess what I found so curious about this. Bye? Bye??!! What the heck is it doing saying "bye" to me? Ah, the mysterious use of the English language when woven into Italian. You've gotta love it. Well, bye to you as well, Mr. Servizio Giardini Truck. Have a lovely day, and please, say hi to your other environmentally-friendly pals for me.
