Friday FAIL

Signs are everywhere, supposedly to help us find what we are looking for, but sometimes the meaning is lost or obscured lost in translation. Here are a few examples.


This looks like a pharmacy, so "a time sex thing" is... who knows? Possibly Viagra?





No masturbation allowed in this store.





And the difference is?





Then we'll never know what the sign says :-(





This isn't a translation problem; just stupidity.



On your way down, get off at the 2th floor and Complete the Caption.

With our thoughts today that everyone is entitled to a job no matter the education we have to expect a few errors.

Hermoine, Sadly I have to admit a few years ago I configured a set of servers as “1th, 2th and 3th”. Thanks for the laughs. Have a great weekend!

In France, the 2nd floor is the premier étage (First stage), 5th floor (to us) is the quatrième étage, so this sign might be helpful to some travellers. But the "1th floor" is inexcusable! Lol

Hermione said...

Cat - You'd better ask Sir Wendel!

Sir Wendel - Oh, no, you didn't!

Jenn - Yes, that seems to be the case in Britain too But get the suffix right!

Hugs,
Hermione
