It's the thanksgiving holiday in the US today, and I'll be spending the day cooking and giving thanks. I have plenty to be thankful for, and a loyal blog audience is one of them. Especially those of you who send in pictures. As the image above says. "Thank" "you." I thought it apt to celebrate with the above cornucopia of quotation marks regarding the "moveing" day for this "mall" after "9" years. Thanks, Stacy!
Submitter Tyler tells us these signs are from a pet-themed trinket store. These must be some pretty sweet trinkets, since you can't mime photographing them, and they are only fake polite about keeping your kid's dirty mits off.
Luis spotted this in Venezuela and helpfully translates "Dear customer, to avoid misunderstandings, we ask you to please come "yourself" to the checkout counter to pay your bill." So I guess somebody impersonating you will do.
You know, since they started charging for checked baggage, I've noticed how the meaning of "one" bag has become a bit more flexible for some people. (Though on my last experience we all got a pre-emptive scolding at the gate). Thanks, Steve.
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.
