essay on performance management

You guys know how I love quirky things – like botched headlines and stupid laws that make us laugh out loud. So I thought I’d share some of these signs that my dad recently emailed to me. I got quite a hoot out of them, and I suspect you will too! Enjoy!

Our first sign leads one to wonder just what kind of laundromat these people are running:

AUTOMATIC WASHING MACHINES: PLEASE REMOVE ALL YOUR CLOTHES WHEN THE LIGHT GOES OUT

Here’s a real head-spinner, found in a London department store:

BARGAIN BASEMENT UPSTAIRS

I’m glad I don’t work in this office:

WOULD THE PERSON WHO TOOK THE STEP LADDER YESTERDAY PLEASE BRING IT BACK OR FURTHER STEPS WILL BE TAKEN

For that matter, I’m glad I don’t work in this office either:

AFTER TEA BREAK STAFF SHOULD EMPTY THE TEAPOT AND STAND UPSIDE DOWN ON THE DRAINING BOARD

Kinda gives new meaning to the “I’m a Little Teapot” song… Anwho, here’s another sign, found outside a secondhand shop:

WE EXCHANGE ANYTHING – BICYCLES, WASHING MACHINES, ETC. WHY NOT BRING YOUR WIFE ALONG AND GET A WONDERFUL BARGAIN?

Notice in health food shop window:

CLOSED DUE TO ILLNESS

Then there’s this gem from a safari park:

ELEPHANTS PLEASE STAY IN YOUR CAR

Seen during a conference:

FOR ANYONE WHO HAS CHILDREN AND DOESN’T KNOW IT, THERE IS A DAY CARE ON THE 1ST FLOOR

Notice in a farmer’s field:

THE FARMER ALLOWS WALKERS TO CROSS THE FIELD FOR FREE, BUT THE BULL CHARGES.

Message on a leaflet:

IF YOU CANNOT READ, THIS LEAFLET WILL TELL YOU HOW TO GET LESSONS

Is that right… Anyway, here’s a sign found on a repair shop door:

WE CAN REPAIR ANYTHING. (PLEASE KNOCK HARD ON THE DOOR – THE BELL DOESN’T WORK)

Note to self…

And now for the grand finale:

TOILET OUT OF ORDER. PLEASE USE FLOOR BELOW

Need I say more? I didn’t think so…
