Interesting Signs

After going through a bit of a "blogging funk," I am going to post some of the signs that have accumulated in my folder. I was so busy before Thanksgiving (before I stopped working at Starbucks), that my enthusiasm for my blog waned greatly. Then with the holidays and illness, it has taken me this long to "resurface." We'll see if this new beginning gets me going again.

Without further ado, I will now post this strange mixture of signs that have come my way.

If I am reading this first sign correctly, hardly anyone would qualify to use this toilet.

Disabled What?!

I would think that any of this company's personnel would be "organic," that is, unless they are robots or bionic or something similar.

Organic People Only

You've got to love unfortunate misspellings, as in this next sign.

Aunt Killer

Even though we got the flu shot this year, Becka and I both had the flu in the last couple of weeks. Maybe we got an insufficient amount of the vaccine.

Flu Shot Gallons

What's that old saying, "a gallon of prevention is worth..."?

It would be hard to resist the offer made by Taco Casa in this sign.

Free Straw

On my way home from Starbucks I would always see the following sign. I finally stopped to take a picture of it one day. I didn't know that flounder was a flying fish.

Flounder Wings

I'll put in several foreign language signs for the sake of former students who read my posts and also just to show that we're not the only ones in the world who have strange signs. The first picture is from Germany.


Umleitung = detour

Now one from France.

Long Lash Warning

In English it would read, "Warning: Long lashes can get caught in the doors."

Here's a great one with Braille that seems at least a little cruel.

Braille Doom

This sign seems to have left one word "out."

Of Order

Here are several interesting signs about closings.

Open Closing Soon

We Closing Dont Ask Why

I will close with a sign that was meant to be humorous, and succeeds.

Hokey Pokey Turn Around

Next week I plan to post the pictures of coffee mugs that I've received. If you meant to send me a picture and didn't, please send it before next Wednesday morning.

Keep a look out for interesting signs. 🙂

    I didn’t know you’d worked at THAT Starbucks! We pass that Carolina Express every time we go to church, & I keep thinking that SOMEone should take a picture of that sign. 🙂

    Great to have you back! I had no idea there were other Taco Casas in the world. I also regret the fact that I didn’t notice that odd expression at the Carolina Express.

    I may be noticing more signs in the future as my son seems to have a greater and greater interest in what signs say.

    I imagine the guy with the hokey pokey addiction put his best foot forward or in some positive position.

    We see the “flounder wings” sign every day as well on our way to and from work. It remains hilarious to us! 🙂

    The benefit of the flu shot is highly dependent on it being against the strain that ends up circulating, and this year the report is that it wasn’t. Hopefully at least your symptoms were lessened having had the vaccine. That seemed to be the case for me, anyway.

    My wife had a pretty hard case of the flu, with several days of fever. My case was not as bad, but then it went into bronchitis and required Z-Pack and codeine cough syrup.
