Nobody believes that this writer would actually call it a "commode" if they weren't being polite. And they aren't actually polite, see the sarcasm near the word "thanks". Thanks, Calder, who saw this at Trident Technical College in Charleston, SC.
I don't usually post the following: newspaper headlines, personal email, craigslist postings, unprofessional websites. I also tend to not crosspost things from other blogs, since I have so much unique material waiting for me to get to it.
Things I see a lot: silica gel "do not eat"; hair dryer labels; inside the bus "do not drill"; Wal-mart sign about IDs; coffee machine with "2" cup sizes; employees must "wash hands".
