Fun with Typos: Construction Edition

Today in Fun with Typos, we examine the word "expect," as in "Construction ahead. Expect delays."

What do you get if you swap the "c" and "p"? You get the word "except." And you get a sign that says: "Construction ahead. Except delays." Which means what, exactly? That there is construction, except there are no delays?

Big flashing sign on the side of the road. Most people probably drove by without given it a moment's thought. What is wrong with me that it is still bothering me some five hours later?
