Well, at least they were honest.

According to UPI, the Washington State Department of Transportation had to apologize to all the drivers after thousands of people drove past an electronic highway sign that said the following: “U Suck.”

Ruslan Kozlov was able to snap a photo of the sign mishap over the southbound Interstate 5, and share it on Facebook:

Maybe they’re right. Maybe I do suck…

Officials are now blaming the mishap on “a training error.” Now I don’t know how that even occurs, but something tells me that trainee has now been given the boot. Then again, perhaps an employee was fired and this was his/her revenge. You know, because they all suck.

WSDOT released a statement about the sign incident:

“This was an inappropriate message and we apologize if anyone was offended. This was due to a training error and clearly a mistake. We are taking steps to ensure this doesn’t happen again.”

It’s too late, Washington. Thousands of drivers are now calling their ex to say this: I guess you were right all along.
