Driving down one of the main roads that goes through our town, I saw one driving school, named Leisure Driving is out of business. Hmm!

Not really a sign but...

I just received one of the most amusing mixups in an professional email newsletter. I belong to a national wine club that sends out weekly "wine profiles" on selections they have for sale. It usually has a photo of the bottle with a description of the maker, description of the wine, and suggestions for what it pairs with. This time however they mixed up the "tastes like" and "pairs with" text so that this particular bottle of wine pairs with "cherries, raspberry, clove and exotic spices" while it tastes like "grilled salmon, duck, wild game birds". Ew, I think I'll pass on a wine that tastes like grilled salmon :P

Please explain.

Is it the Korn that bothers you? That's just expected around here, like Kountry Kitchen. We all know it is annoyingly cutesy.

 I think it might be the coverd and the wtih - missing the 'e' and the 't' and 'i' transposed.

It's the words "coverd wtih" just below the cutesy Kettle Korn.

Common sense is not a gift, but a curse.  Because then
you have to deal with all the people who don't have it.

Thanks! I've seen that sign so many times I don't even see it anymore!  :)

The really sad thing it's mass produced!

Maybe somebody can explain this one to me, because I am confused.

Every day, on my way to my office at work, I pass a series of cabinet/closet type things that are used by student organizations to store stuff.  (I work on a college campus.) 

For the past few days, one of them has had a post-it note stuck on it with the words
"I can't get over the butterfly feet"
written on it in purple marker.

I have no idea what this means (maybe something to do with the sliding doors) but it makes me laugh.

Apparently it is making butterfly prints using your feet.

Like so:


Not my feet fyi.

Well, these are a bunch of college students, and some of the organizations that store stuff there mentor children as part of what they do, so that could very well be it, that there are some of those stored there.   :)

I didn't notice that initially...I thought we were all crying over the "NO BUTTER" part!

I despise the use of K or Q instead of C.

We have electronic signs all along the major roads to warn you of traffic problems ahead and the estimated travel time to a certain cross street.

Last week, while driving, I noticed the electronic signs were warning of traffic congestion, only the wrong direction as I had already passed the problem area.

Here's one from a bathroom stall...


In case you can't read it, it says "Jesus loves you!" with a smiley face.
Below someone has added "Yes, but He frowns upon vandalism"

This sign is on the napkin dispensers in the small Greek restaurant where I ate dinner last night

"Yes we have free WIFI. But why not talk to the people you're with instead?"
