Signage

I escaped for a few days and went fishing at lake Buchanan down in the Hill country of Texas. Unlike my buddy who gets to stay for three weeks I only managed to get away for three days before catching a plane in San Antonio and flying home. I have a few pictures I'll share alter int he week but this one, snapped inside the San Antonio airport really cracked me up.

Remember people punctuation is your friend.


If you've read this blog very long you know I'm far from being a grammar guru, but even I couldn't help but ask myself questions after spotting this.

Is it okay to sit on table and improperly dispose of trash?

Can I just sit on the table and not dispose of my trash at all?

What if I first properly dispose of my trash and then sit on the table?

I love this 'Can I just sit on the table and not dispose of my trash at all?'

Clearly, sitting on the table is fine, disposing of your trash is fine, just don't do both together. :)

You have to wonder if anyone reads what they write anymore.

I feel a bit confused. I'm sure it's me and not the sign.

Maybe it was cheaper to have it done this way?

:-)

Hope you had a great time anyway!

Take care

ROFL

Pick one or the other but, for godsakes, don't do both.

See, these are exactly the type of ponderings I do on a daily basis. It drives my kids crazy. Thanks for sharing, Travis.

Bwah ha! Great capture. ;)

Hilary said...

Too funny. Perhaps you can just stand on the table and properly dispose of your trash.

Dawn said...

I think I'll just sit on my trash and dispose of the table!

That reminds me of "Let's eat grandma." vs. "Let's eat, grandma." Proper punctuation can save lives!
