"when" does it work?


I've got to say, the best one about this one is the increasing number of punctuation marks at the end of the sign, indicating resignation and disgust. I mean, hello, it does "not" work. Thanks, Kelley.

it "dose" not work. What does that mean?

Sometimes it dose work, sometimes it's an overdose of work.

This is obviously a message in secret code. Unfortunately I don't have the key.

Why quotes *and* caps for "when"? That's an odd word to emphasize.

qualifies as a double submission to both the "blog" and passive aggressive notes!

VeggieT said...

Yes it's certainly passive aggressive

Since when do stalls work? The stall merely serves to house the toilet, which... oh, never mind.

this one makes me wonder if the person who wrote the sign is so unused to physically writing with a pen, that they used a kind of strange amalgam of pseudo-html and grocery-store punctuation - thus the inverted commas around 'when' are indicating *emphasis*, as asterisks might when typing in plain text.
which still doesn't answer the question of why 'when' should be emphasised.
