Sometimes a common public sign contains hidden humor that was unintended by the original author.

Try to read familiar signs with “fresh eyes”, as though for the first time. You may get an unanticipated chuckle.

For example, a sign in a restaurant may read, “Please Wait For Hostess To Be Seated.” You know, she never sits down.

Or the sign in our elevator reads, “Occupancy By Six Persons Only.” It’s a challenge to recruit five others every time I want to use it.

Then there’s the temporary sign often displayed in public restrooms – “Wet Floor.” It’s not a good idea.
