Off the wall at the BBQ Joint in Monroe, LA ...
May your health outlive your years.
I'm a big fan of signs in restaurants. This was in Sedona AZ.
The Main Street Diner in town has a sign that says "Free beer tomorrow." I think I will stop in there next time I'm in town.
Freighter Jim, Burger & Dick - Good stuff! I like the one that says words to the effect of:
"Don't be too critical of Mom when she asks for help on the computer,.....she taught you how to use a spoon".
Dad had one in the kitchen as you were leaving. It said "Don't let the door hit you in the a__ on the way out" I told him it was in poor taste. He replied "this way I don't always have to be here to tell you in person"! It must have made sense, I don't remember a time when it wasn't there. What a guy!
My junior high school drafting teacher had a sign by the clock, "Notice clock watchers. Time will pass, you may not."
At report card time he hung a towel on a hook by the door. The sign over it said simply, "Crying Towel".
In today's world he would probably have been in big trouble for posting such things.
I am a big fan of creative graffiti. My brother and I are "collectors" of wisdom as has been
posted above, and often find additional tidbits written on bathroom walls and elsewhere. We
can carry on whole conversations in "secret code" we have picked up from such sources. Our
wives often comment on "those Burger boys" and our "voodoospeak" that sounds like real
English, but makes no sense to anyone listening. We often leave everyone in the dust when
playing word games, when we can get the other to say some obscure word or phrase with the
simple drop of another obscure word or phrase.
The crying towel reminds me of a time when I hired my sister to do some work when she had
young kids and the cost of kiddy care made working a wash for any meaningful income. I had
a house going up, and the kids were free to run about the house and property all day while we
worked. All was good until the kids would either hurt themselves or get to fighting. Sis was at
a loss on how to keep them from crying, etc., so I gave Sis a lesson in Kidpsych 101 .... The
Crying Room. I found a rather uninviting place in the house ... the furnace room, and designated
it to the kids as The Crying Room, informing them that all crying was to be done there and nowhere
else. As predicted, the kids had a stronger disinterest in being in that room than they did with
crying. We had very little issues with crying for the duration.
I remember a sign in a small town café in the middle of Montana. Simply stated, "Be a good duck and take care of your bill"!!!!!!
Seen in a café,
The difference between this place and the Titanic?
They had a band.
The Difficult we do immediately,The impossible takes a minute or two! Please be patient with us while we work on your request.
This was the sign that hung over my desk when I was in the NAVY it now resides in my garage
Seen in a Sunset Boulevard second hand store: Old junk is better than new crap.
Everyone brings joy to this place, some by entering-some by leaving.
Grandpa always said this about "us boys"
"When you have one boy helping you,
you have the help of one boy".
"When you have 2 boys helping you,
you have the help of 1/2 a boy".
"When you have 3 boys helping you,
you ain't got shit".
I used to think grandpa was just being funny, but now I know he was speaking the truth.
Seen in a restaurant in Wallace, Indiana:
"I'm just working here until a good fast food job opens up!"
