There is a hilarious petition circulating to fix the nightmare holiday decorations on the Holland Tunnel sign. The OCD community has mobilized and is demanding the Port Authority fix their eyesore.
We don’t suffer from obsessive compulsive disorder but after looking at the sign, it’s hard not to feel their pain. Why in the world would someone place a Christmas tree over the letter ‘N’ when it so clearly fits over the ‘A’! Then they decided to ramp up their disaster by turning Tunnel into a “TONNEL” by putting a wreath over the “U.” It’s hard to believe someone stepped back, looked at the sign and thought it was time clock out and go get a beer.
Cory Windelspecht, 38, who started the change.org petition to fix the mess had the following to say
“I look at it and it makes me itch. It gives me anxiety and anger — why wouldn’t they just put [the tree] in front of the A?”
“When the tree is moved over to the letter A, this world is going to be a better place.”
As of today the petition had garnered 882 signees out of its goal of 1,000. Windelspecht now plans to speak at a public Port Authority meeting Thursday.
“Who are you hurting by changing it?” he said. “It isn’t going to cost you anything.” He’s made a valid point if you ask us.
