'No texting your ex after 2am': 20+ funny chalkboard signs outside of pubs and restaurants

'No texting your ex after 2am': 20+ funny chalkboard signs outside of pubs and restaurants

Every so often, you come across a pub with a clever enough sign that, at the very least, makes you consider coming in for a drink. Honestly, the truth is most professional advertising these days does not come close to the wit of these managers, employees, bartenders, etc. who happened to just come up with something clever on the spot. Perhaps making these signs was a creative outlet during their shifts. Or perhaps these folks should be the future of modern advertising and nobody is giving them…

‘Stay away, it's for your own good': Locals discuss top 28 'unwritten rules' in their country that tourists always break

‘Stay away, it's for your own good': Locals discuss top 28 'unwritten rules' in their country that tourists always break

Too often, I've seen tourists ignore big blatant signs in their own native language that read, ‘Do not enter'. But enter, they do. Sometimes they get lucky, while other times, not so much. And I'm not speaking from a ‘high and mighty’ place, because I myself have ignored instructions and had to pay the price. One person posted a question to r/askreddit, asking which unwritten rules tourists always seem to ignore when they are on vacation abroad. There is a whole variety of answers from people l…

'Every single ticket was dismissed': Serial speeder discovers legal loophole, saves thousands of dollars in speeding tickets

This dude discovered the ultimate driving loophole and has never looked back. He's like the definition of a person who's too smart for their own good. U/treize_k had a great story to share about their father's excellent malicious compliance . Dad found a way to speed without a care in the world. We've all pushed the speed limit at some point. There are places to be, and there's no one on the road, so you decide to drive a bit faster. And on highways, people routinely go 20 or 30 miles above the…

'Dishwasher detergent that looks like juice': 30 major and unintentional design flaws

Sometimes you take a look at a product in a store and immediately wonder what these people were thinking when they were designing this. You're thinking about how silly it looks, how useless it seems, and how many people signed off on this without using their evidently hollow brains. These flaws were compiled from the top posts in the r/BadDesigns subreddit from this past month. Some of these entries include store products, job advertisements, warning signs, and even architectural flaws. Regardl…

'The next day, signs go up on 80 trees in a row': Tractor trailer driver refuses to stop parking in a pecan grove, farmers try numerous tactics to get him to leave

This truck driver kept parking on an expensive and private plot of land . He didn't know it at first, but then even after he was told about the issue, he still kept doing it. The allure of being out on the open road and seeing thousands of miles of the country you live in is a great incentive for many truck drivers. As a driver, you'll get to travel through numerous states and get to see lots of different cities and towns. Plus, driving trucks is crucial to the economy---how else would food, cl…

'THIS IS A HANDWASHING SINK [...] NO WASHING YOUR FEET': 30+ funny and cringe signs

'This is a handwashing sink [...] no washing your feet': 30+ amusing and cringe signs

You might do a double-take and think you're misreading these signs. Fortunately, you're not crazy. These are actual signs from billboards, retail stores, and public bathrooms galore. Some of the requests being made are so ridiculous that you begin to question everyone else's sanity. For instance, do people really wash their feet in the sink of a public bathroom? Do people really tweet about a fire in the building before evacuating? Do the marketing teams of these major chains really not catch g…

'Non action and stop excitement': 20 Garbled signs that almost make sense

Creating a sign shouldn't be this difficult. We can't all be sign experts! And sometimes you need a quick sign ASAP. So you scribble one out with a marker, and carry on with your day. Sometimes the sign-maker is a bad speller. Others simply got too creative with the placement of each word, making it nearly impossible to figure out what the flyer is trying to say. People captured photos of these signs found out in the wild. Some say these posters and flyers are still up today, haunting the walls…

'[She] changed our sign to say 'open': Gift shop employee stops customer who insisted on shopping in a closed store

'[She] changed our sign to say 'open': Gift shop employee stops customer who insisted on shopping in a closed store

This customer has a life hack to get into any store . All you have to do is take a little initiative. What could go wrong? U/Sparrowmoss shared this wild story of customer entitlement . Some customers take deep offense to stores being closed, or having hours of operation in general. If the customer can't get that random item at 10:59pm, they'll insist that the store is in the wrong. It's not the employee's fault that customers procrastinate so badly that they intend to shop at a store that's cl…

'To use the disabled lift, please come upstairs': 30 People who had just one job and still goofed it up

Jobs, how do they work? These people made various levels of mistakes that they really should have caught before it went out to the public. Below are 30 people who had just one job to get right, and they couldn't even do that. The funniest versions of this to me are translators or transcribers who messed up. There are people who were writing copy, needed translation to another language, and somehow that never happened. Then you end up with TV captions of a person who says a Korean word, and the…

Hole-y bowls and double Doges: 20+ Designs that aren't quite right

Seeing these badly designed items really makes you appreciate the well-designed things in the world. Great design is one of those things you don't always appreciate right away. For example, anyone could make a chair, but is it comfortable? If the design of that furniture is poor, you're going to know right away. The same goes for funny signs , which can sometimes spell out funny words unintentionally. Or maybe it's intentional, and the sign maker is just hoping for the right person to notice th…

'The meter maid literally ran to his car to give him a ticket': Top 20 Mildly Infuriating Moments of the Week (June 1, 2023)

Without password sharing for movie streaming services, how will humanity survive? Families are being torn apart as some streaming services have ceased allowing families to share passwords with each other. Now, something that was once a legacy — having a cheap pass to let all your family and friends mooch off your Netflix account — is no more. Indeed, the younger generations are rolling their eyes and switching to the next cheapest service. That's just one of the mildly annoying things people sh…

A collection of funny signs and sign fails

20+ Signs that mean serious business

It's often said that for every rule, there is a story. Someone, somewhere, did something, and someone else made certain that thing was never going to happen again. The same is often true for signs; no one goes around posting them at random. No, a sign is only posted with a purpose; just sometimes, it's incredibly vague or confusing as to what that purpose was or why it needed to be a purpose at all. Well, these signs are here, and they mean serious business. As I look at each of these, I can't…
