The Sign

One day I passed a sign in a mall store. The sign was in front of one of the checkout counters. Although I bought nothing in that store at that time, I did steal away with the immortal message printed neatly on the sign.

The Package You Take Home Gets There Faster

That may appear to mean that a package which is brought home upon purchase will reach its ultimate destination before a package that is to be delivered there does. That is not the real meaning of the sign. It would be cheating for me to tell you the meaning. You were waiting for a sign, weren’t you?

The package you take home gets there faster'

Meet you back at the ranch, Roy.
