Strange Signs

Recommended Posts

Another sign I saw recently in among some roadworks- 

 

Bus Stop Suspended

 

Really? Hanging around waiting for a bus takes on a whole new meaning!

I was always amused by a sign on a wire fence round a disused petrol station explaining that "In order to serve you better, this location is closed." This was followed by directions to the next nearest one, which if memory serves was more than 5 miles away. So glad they were trying to serve their customers better.

 

Then there was the wonderful billboard a few Christmases ago, advertising a local jewellery shop: "Ladies, come in any time. Gents, see you on Christmas Eve." Obviously the owner knew a thing or two about the Christmas shopping habits of men and women.

Another sign on a van:

 

"Tree Experts"

 

This time the van belonged to some tree surgeons and was parked on a river embankment the other day. A couple of workmen were standing nearby and carefully examining a tree.

 

Well you wouldn't need to be all that much of an expert to deduce what was amiss with the tree in question - it had quite clearly fallen in the river  ;)

Can just hear them now. "It drowned."

We went for a lovely walk this morning in the sunshine, and had a bit of a chuckle along the way.

 

There is a footpath which runs down between some houses and leads out onto fields beyond. At each end of the footpath, someone has attached a sign to the fence which reads:

 

Take care

 

You are entering

 

Dog Poo Alley

 

YUK!

Sign in a restuarant in London this weekend

 

"Unattended children will be given fizzy drinks and a puppy"  

 

I thought it was a fun way of telling people to keep their children under control

As long as it's intended for the 2-5 age range!!

Imagine a gullible 6 year old able to read the notice!! They might get upset when not given a puppy!!! :)

Helpful sign on a bag of frozen edamame: "Allergy warning! Contains soy!"

 

Well, yes, edamame actually are soybeans, I think I knew that they'd contain soy. Honestly...

Driving to work the other day when I went past a small van advertising a slimming product-the headline was 'Stink Yourself Slim'. It did cause my mind generate a few creative ideas as to what this might mean...?

Along the river embankment in Bedford there are many signposts, one of which is a triangular one with a duck on it.

 

Fixed to the signpost immediately underneath is a new sign:

 

"Average Speed Cameras Being Installed here Soon"

 

:blink:

There are so many road works in Brighton at the moment that it feels like they are mobile!

Just home after a long and boring drive up the M23, M25, M11, A1 etc etc, I was temporarily amused and distracted somewhere along the way, by a road sign indicating a crematorium off to the left. A few feet further on there was another sign saying No Dumping. :huh:

My local Morrisons has a sign outside saying "Start Saving For Christmas".

 

 

that's more of a customer base indicator; Lidl has theirs out on January 5th and Waitrose only on December 10th ;)

 

 

 

edit: I have no idea how I've just come to comment on a three year old post! sorry!

Driving down the high street of a nearby town, I saw a billboard sign on the pavement for 'Quality Solicitors', offering various services including Divorce from only £110!!! There was an * next to the !!!, so I imagine the 'from only' part is open to interpretation. Still possibly a bargain though. The degree of the quality was not specified.

At the moment I passed the sign, the radio was playing When Love Breaks Down by Prefab Sprout. How appropriate.  :(

While on holiday last week we visited the loveliest picture-postcard seaside village, bobbing painted yachts, gorgeous thatched cottages, marvellous views, ancient beautiful church, the lot.

 

As we were walking through the village and quite near the shore, we noticed a delightful little house for sale, and were thinking wow, how great to live in a place like this. Then we noticed the name painted on the gate and decided perhaps not, after all!

 

'Flood Cottage'

 

:D

I saw a great sign propped up by a Big Issue seller - "Come and buy your Big Issue. No pushing and shoving - please form an orderly queue!" I bought one from him just for his sense of humour!

My local market town has a food and drink festival today, with many stalls selling street food. One of them was selling specialist sausages and hot dogs etc, and the chaps serving had t-shirts with this emblazoned on the back:

 

Sausage Technician

 

:D

There is a well known takeaway chain that advertises for staff quite often. The job title is Sandwich Artist. I wonder what they call people who work in a pub nowadays!  ;)

With apologies for lowering the tone :), you've reminded me of a sign spotted in the ladies' loos in a theatre some months ago:

 

"All sanitary ware must be deposited in the Southalls bins provided ..."  I was trying to work out how on earth you could fit a washbasin or a toilet bowl in the bin!
