quote Drug Free unquote

This sign comes via the “Blog” of “Unnecessary” Quotation Marks.

Of course, it’s an example of completely inappropriate use of quote marks, and yet… unintentionally quite accurate.
After all, it’s never really about a “drug free” workplace. Caffeine is just fine. So are plenty of other drugs. And when they test you, they don’t care if you were anywhere near the workplace when you were using or influenced by illegal drugs, so again, it’s not about a “drug free” workplace.
So maybe whenever you see a “Drug Free Workplace” sign, add some quotation marks around “Drug Free.” Make it obvious that you added them intentionally.
It’s just the kind of subtle protest that might intrigue a couple of eggheads at your place of employment.
