Actually, this sign makes it seem like this golfcourse really isn't closed, since you can call somebody and still play. Maybe it will cost you, hence the ominous "thank you and have fun". Maybe you'll play golf while being hunted like an animal for sport. Thanks, Heather.
Michael notes that this was spotted at "the famous, customer unfriendly Lorenzo's Pizza on South Street in Philadelphia." I don't know what people really take when they ask for a "cup of ice" but Lorenzo is on to them.
Rebecca writes, "When I was a bartender years ago, friends and family often asked when I was going to get a real job. So, this sign stood out to me, as it so blatantly questions the veracity of the profession."
Please send your submissions via email to bethanykeeley (at) gmail.com. I look at them all, but it might take a while to get to yours -- sorry! I love you all, but I only have so much energy in a day.
If you want your picture to make the blog DO NOT @tweet them, or leave them in a comment. I need them all in the same place. Make sure your emails are easily distinguishable from spam or viruses (I use gmail web interface, so images get previews).
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"; that failblog post.
