Polite Notice?






I spotted this notice yesterday and share it with you without further comment.

Quality example of a British passive-aggressive sign there.

Tandleman, I have amended my article "Emperor's New Clothes" to remove any detrimental mention of CAMRA.

Tandleman said...

Papastonch - Cheers, but you didn't have to if that's what you think. I just thought I'd put the other side.

Enjoying your blog enormously.

As someone that used to suffer from disorganised twats constantly asking for change (which the bank charges you for) thinking that they had a god given right to it. I think I know where they are coming from.

Stonch said...

The bank doesn't charge you for change if you're nice to the girls behind the counter and bring them sweets...

Just seen my dad's comment above.

Don't let Tandleman bully you, dad, he's just a big vulgar Scotsman with a red nose! ;-)

Tandleman said...

I haven't got a red nose! (-:

This notice is in the tradition of pub classics such as:

"Please don't ask for credit as a refusal (or, alternatively, 'a punch in the nose') sometimes offends."

Or: "We have an arrangement with the bank: they don't sell beer and we don't cash cheques."

Not forgetting the all-time classic: "We only give credit to customers aged over 80 accompanied by both parents."

The long winter nights must just fly by as they dream up ever more witty notices for our entertainment.
