This post is a follow up to my previous post on rude and polite signboards. This temporary signboard in 39st NW, Calgary, Canada is the only signboard, I have seen, to be polite enough to add a ‘Please’ in it!
I would love to hear from you on the issue of making the signboards more polite like this one!
I don’t feel like paying ‘here’. See how rude the sign board reads.
Pay here you … come on, pay here for parking…
I don’t see any reason why it requires two sign boards saying the exact same thing.
What does the arrow pointing downwards mean when the pay machine is located on the right? Is it asking you to stand at that location before you insert your card in the card reader?
Well, “Please Pay Here”, or “Pay Here, Please” would certainly feel good.
It sure sounds nice when ones says ‘please’. But, there are very few sign boards that are polite enough.
I am collecting ‘rude’ and ‘polite’ sign boards and till date I have sighted only one ‘polite’ one and all others are rude.
Let me start with the rudes …
The sign board reads :
CYCLIST DISMOUNT – WALK BICYCLE ACROSS ROADWAY
Cyclist dismount – Please walk bicycle across roadway.
or, Cyclist, please dismount – walk bicycle across roadway.
More of such sign boards will be coming…
