Someone (who shall of course remain nameless so that other people may feel free to send me their hilarious photos) just sent me this extremely specific sign, spotted in a bathroom. Let’s take a look, shall we?
Wow. That is a level of detail that I was not expecting from a university, or a plumbing company, or…in a bathroom in general. Also, I’m wondering about the placement of the sign. Is it in the actual bathroom stall? And, not to sound totally uncivilized, but is this (ahem) particular detail something that you always have knowledge of when you go into the bathroom? I would think it would be too late by the time you knew you needed to (ahem) change venues, you know what I’m saying?
I think what I’m saying is, “OUT OF ORDER” would have perhaps been preferable to whatever this seems to be, wouldn’t you agree? I do not think this sign is going to have the desired effect, and if we’re being honest here, if the plumber knows he’s going to have to clean this up, why not just close the bathroom to avoid the risk? Finally, if they don't mean "other business," what OTHER kinds of "other business" might they be referring to? For instance, would it be ok if I went in there and promised to only do a conference call and send some emails?
I’m. Just. Saying.
