Common Sense Membership

How many times have you walked into a business and saw a laminated sign on the wall advising you to do something:

Don’t smoke.
Don’t leave popcorn unattended in the microwave.
Don’t pee on the seat.
Clean out the fridge.
Refill the printer paper tray.
Turn off your cell phone.
Be quiet.
If waiting longer than 10 minutes past your appointment, advise desk.
Wait for your number to be called.
Turn off the lights.

And these signs are all signed with: “Thank you, MANAGEMENT.”

No shit.
Really?
Management?
Who did you think we’d think put that sign up? The sign elves?
Who else would be asking us not to flush things other than toilet paper down the john? The city waste workers? Doubt it.

Forgive me, but I refuse to make my butt an advertisement space.
Butt billboards – just say no. No, thank you. Most times, those girls/women who wear those butt ads really shouldn’t be drawing attention to that region in the first place. And why don’t you see guys wearing sweats that advertise one-word glorifications? Could be an entire host of possibilities out there the clothing companies are missing out on….just imagine.

Recently I was in Montreal walking down the street behind a guy wearing a snug fitting white jacket that stated, “Watch & Enjoy.” Hummm, watch and enjoy what? Your saggy ass jeans? You’re off your crackers. He thought he was all that and he’s not even the pickle on a sandwich. Seriously.

If someone locates the well of common sense, maybe we could sell memberships.
