Please Can't I Come Too?

  1. Do folk ever read copy before going to the expense of a sign? No as a nation we just love signs.

  2. I can just see that garden full of guide dogs! Thanks for the laugh. (You do have "an eye" for these things!)

  3. very ambiguous, eh? I suppose guide dogs read too as well as their other talents?

  4. hee hee

    Of course the dogies can read Scrappy Grams, most intelligent animals. Makes me wonder about the IQs of some sign writers/designers.

  5. I can just picture the blind people and their guide dogs happily wandering beyond the open gates.

    I saw a sign you'd like last week at the Emergency after hours doctors room: "Mobile phones are to be turned off when being seen by the doctors or nurses". I lay my phone on the bed and was trying to get it and the sign in the shot when the nurse came in and drew my attention to the next line - "No filming or photography". To my amazement she could not see what I was getting at! I think I was lucky she let me wait for the doctor.

  6. But...if only guides dogs are allowed, they will have no one to guide!

  7. Ah, well, those hard-working guide dogs need some time and space on their own, too, I guess!

    @Adrian: as a nation, I think Germans are even "worse" when it comes to putting up signs. And they do not proof read, either...
