SIGNS THAT DO MORE THAN INFORM!

SIGNS THAT DO MORE THAN INFORM!

Well, we are speeding towards the end of January. It’s cold and most of us are hungry, tired and broke! And not sure if it is just me but everywhere I look I seem to be affronted by images of slim, toned and tanned Z list celebs languishing in paradise with smug smiles and green smoothies!!

So, in the name of sisterhood this week’s blog is a random attempt to make ya smile. Over the past few months these are genuine signs I have seen whilst driving around and they made me giggle, I hope they tickle you too and roll on February!

NEARLY NEW BABY SALE THIS WEEKEND – PROMOTIONAL BANNER ON ROUNDABOUT

Seriously don’t know about you but if I am buying a baby I would rather buy a new one!

FREE EYE TESTS FOR THE BLIND – NOTICE IN MY LOCAL OPTICIANS

Optician ‘Well Mrs Smith the bad news is you are as blind as a bat, but the good news is I haven’t charged you for that eye test? When I first saw this I could not control my giggles and had to leave Tony in the waiting room whilst I left to compose myself.

SECRET BUNKER THIS WAY – ROAD SIGN IN CHESHIRE

Not sure what to say about this? Does not give me any confidence for our post apocalyptic survival.

CASH FOR KIDS – NAME OF LARGE REGIONAL CHARITY

This one always gets me, did no one think of the connotations of this name?

BAMBOO FOR SALE – WILL DELIVER – THIS IS A NOTICE OUTSIDE MY LOCAL GARDEN CENTRE

This always makes me think who in Cheshire is keeping pet Pandas? Why else would anyone need a bulk delivery of Bamboo?

STUDENT STORAGE – SIGN ON SIDE OF ONE OF THOSE HUGE STORAGE CENTRES

My imagination goes into overdrive on this one – I see parents delivering their unkempt, bedraggled teenagers along with a mass of boxes to put into storage for the summer!

BEST HAND JOB IN TOWN – SIGN ON ENTRANCE TO CAR WASH IN MANCHESTER

Not much to say about this one!

PAWN COMPUTERS – A LOCAL BUSINESS

The guy that runs this business, genuinely does not get how problematic this name is and how damaging for his brand, however, I suppose on the plus side it is definitely memorable and gets people talking!

Normal blogging will resume next week!
