not YOU....


Autumn saw this at work. She acknowledges, "Knowing that this poor guy had to put up the sign for a third time, in a bathroom that grown women use, almost makes me excuse the excessive use of quotes." Almost.

That this is the third in a series of signs designating the "toilet" unusable is as funny as the quotation marks.

Actually it was probably because he put the first two notes in quotes that he had a problem. They didn't take him seriously.

plus bonus apostrophe abuse: "thank's" twice!

I think the second note is like subtitles for those who don't speak Brokenapostrophese.

snort. "Brokenapostrophese." Grammar geeks unite! We have a name for it!
Why would you use a broken toilet anyway? If it says its broken, go in the mens. I'd rather go in the dirty guy's bathroom then have a toilet flood all over my pants.

haha "i ask you.." i love this one. the desperation.

I have a feeling it's not out of order, and he finally put that sign up just to get people to stop. I'd do the same thing.

I guess once a toilet is broken, it becomes just a porcelain bowl with water in it, thus deeming it a quasi toilet, or "toilet".

i love how the first line contains nested scare quotes

"I ask "you" not to use"...
