Observations...funny signs and situations! (#1)
Did you see that?
We see signs all the time, right? But do we really read them? Really?
Working in a variety of customer service settings, I am often convinced that most people don't actually take the time to read signs or think about what they are saying...occasionally, even those people who create or post them!
I really enjoy seeing the humor in everyday situations, and unusual (or maybe just silly) signs can be a great source of fun!
There are even websites dedicated to funny signage, as well as humorous situations caught on camera. Just google funny signs, or look at flickr or photo sharing sites, and you'll find plenty to keep you entertained. You can also find books with great photos of funny signs and situations.

But it's also fun (and not hard) to come across those moments yourself...if you're paying attention. I've posted some of my favorites here, along with some thoughts that naturally came to mind for me when I saw them. Yes, you're likely to notice some sarcasm. Hopefully, they will also provide some light moments to your day, and a reminder to take some time to stop and...read the signs! Let them also be a reminder that we're all human – no need to take ourselves too seriously.
