MARIETTA, Ga. — Remember the couple who put up signs in the yard reminding drivers in their neighborhood to "slow the F down"?
Well, someone stole the "F" from the display!
Jordy Johnston, a father of four, said he got tired of people going 50 mph in his 25 mph neighborhood - so he got creative, and a little in-your-face, with his message. He placed five huge neon yellow signs in his Marietta yard with a word on each one: "SLOW THE F DOWN!!!"
Not everyone was fond of his ... subtle ... message, and Johnston said someone even complained about the display - he got a visit from Code Enforcement over it (After adjusting the display's distance from the roadway, he was within compliance).
For Johnston, keeping the kids safe in his neighborhood is more important than a strategically placed "F" bomb. But it appears the feelings over the "F" have escalated. Johnston said he and his wife heard a trunk close on a car outside his house this week, and when they looked out, a black car was driving off with the sign!
Despite losing the sign, Jordy said not to worry - he plans to replace it with a much, much larger "F."
