Sorry, We Really Have No Idea When We Are Open Saturdays

Reader Colin writes in to let us know that in Atlanta the emission station might be open on Saturday, but they’re really just not sure when.

In Atlanta, we have to have our cars checked to meet an emissions standard once a year. I just had mine checked last week and I noticed this sign on the way out as I left.

Not only do they have no idea what time they’re open on Saturdays, if you look closely, it’s printed right onto the sign. They paid money to permanently put a question mark on their sign. We might open at 8am on Saturdays, it might be 10am, we don’t even know!

Good thing I went on a Tuesday morning.
