This week we have discussed signs you should not have to post in public places and some signs we are grateful that are posted. Some are funny, some are not, but these are just a few to get the conversation started.
“Turn off your cell phone” falls into both categories. We should all know to turn off (or put on silent) cell phones for church, funerals, speaking engagements, weddings, public meetings, the library, school, etc. We also know that as much as we use our cell phones, it becomes an extension of us, and we are grateful for those reminders.
These same places should not have to post a sign to ‘use your indoor voice.’ And we should all know not to share our private and intimate relationships by letting the entire building overhear your cell phone conversation with or about your sweetie while you are not using your indoor voice.
One sign that should not have to be posted in public is to ‘pull your pants up in the back or your shirt down in the back to avoid embarrassing situations’. Invariably, the person who needs this sign is nearly always sitting at a public computer in the library (in my line of sight). We do not need to know your personal
business, including the color of your underwear. Thank you for covering up.
