This was a sign I saw at an Indian restaurant in Cardiff.
It entertains me in many ways…
Ricky Gervais’s character David Brent sings a request, “Please don’t make fun of the disableds, there’s nothing funny about those” yet underlying we know it is ‘wrong’ as it has the words ‘disableds’ and then the word ‘those’, which makes it funny.
The sign has 3 elements that are reflective of this:
- Disable (spelt incorrectly)
- Saying sorry for the ‘inconvenience’ when it is on a toilet door, and
- Saying it is ‘out of order’ – which you could take a meta comment upon the whole situation.
It’s the small things.
