See the Signs? You See Them. (#7 of 30)

I like to collect pictures of signs, and I’ve posted about them before. I like all kinds of signs, but my favorites are the ones with something either funny or a typo on them. I’ve collected more, so here are a few of the new ones…

Here’s one from my old Ford Focus. This was in the passenger foot well, on the door side. Who knows WHAT this was for??? And considering it took me 4 years before I ever SAW it, I don’t know who they thought was doing this…

Now, I’ve got a question. Does this mean the car will get cleaned, but will come out covered in salt?

Finally, here’s a sign found at my friend Linda-With-An-I’s “vacation” place. 

While I hate to speak ill of the dead (bookstores) and TECHNICALLY this sign doesn’t have a typo, one of these things is not like the other. Can you spot it? LOL.

Sign, Sign, Everywhere a Sign…

Sign Sign everywhere a sign
Blocking out the scenery breaking my mind
Do this, don’t do that, can’t you read the sign?

Signs are funny things. When drafting this post, I found I had a lot more Signs than I thought. Ready? Let’s go…

I saw this one at a Taco Bell near my favorite LYS. It’s the exclamation point that makes it for me.

This was on the road in Arizona. I was driving with my Aunt J and pulled right off the road to take this picture because it made me laugh…


This one stopped me in my tracks. This is the promo poster in the Los Angeles Public Library for their literacy program. I can’t QUITE figure out what they’re going for. If they’re trying to attract those that can’t read, well, then printing a sign with words won’t really work. And if you’re aiming for getting new volunteers to teach people to read, then if the people volunteering think this is okay, I think you have a bigger problem.

Here’s one for the Harry Potter fans here. It’s actually a shoe box in a store. It’s a Clean Sweep 7!

Mom at the Revlon Run/Walk in front of “Felix the Cat, Rat, Dog.” (Don’t ask. LOL) Thanks, Mom, for letting me post this one. LOL

Gas prices here in Los Angeles. Granted, this is from a few weeks ago, but things haven’t really improved all that much…

This was from a booksigning in San Diego a few years ago. Meet the “Witers”?!?! And when I pointed this typo out to the woman in charge of booksignings for BN, she shrugged and informed me it was no big deal. “No one will notice.” Ummm…Ok. I’m sure a bunch of writers and a group of women who read and/or write wouldn’t POSSIBLY notice.
