A sign of the times
Usually, road and warning signs are there to keep you safe and informed. Signs are meant to grab your attention and direct it to something important. On the basic level, signs are meant to be read and hopefully followed. So what happens when the very signs you rely on are clearly messing with you?
For the signs below, someone clearly had a fun day at work. The signs are clever, misleading, or sometimes even downright rude. Maybe these hilarious examples will remind you to not take every laminated sheet of paper or brightly painted sign as gospel. Sometimes it’s better to take in life, or a misleading sign, with a grain of salt and a sense of humour.
Cheaper than daycare and they learn a skill
Leaving children unattended is generally frowned upon. That is, of course, unless they could be useful. Children make a myriad of surprising noises at the slightest provocation – high-pitched laughs and low-belly shouts. In fairness, they might be the most versatile instrument this store has ever known.
This sign isn’t messing with you so much as finding a clever way to tell you to take it elsewhere. You and your cigarette should pack it up and move along. Or maybe just the cigarette. If you send him packing, or leave ’em in the pack, you can stay.
