I’m never shocked when I hear about people doing stupid things. I mean, I live in Florida. People doing stupid things happens pretty much daily down here. There are some things that I look at and think, “How many people were doing this that they had to make a sign telling them not to do it?”
I mean, it might only be one. For example, there are signs on the Mexico pavilion at Epcot in Walt Disney World because someone thought it would be a good idea to climb the steps of the Aztek pyramid outside.
When the parks reopen, don’t get drunk at Epcot and try to do this. Okay?
There’s also this sign my dad and his wife found when visiting Myanmar:
I really want to know what it says over the third panel. What was the person in that picture trying to do with the toilet?
Here’s another one from Thailand where I can’t believe it was happening so much they needed to make a sign:
While all of those signs are strange, I can understand them. The first one is to keep drunk guests from climbing pavilions (but if you’re that drunk, is a sign going to stop you?) and the other two are most likely cultural differences. Some people who live in countries where squat toilets are the norm might just be looking for what they’re used to, and I’m sure there’s a place in the world where you wash your feet in the toilet (I now know it’s a religious thing and they’re letting people know not to use the toilet, but a designated space nearby.)
But this one sign, or more accurately this sticker, always aggravates me when I see it in a hotel room.
STOP HANGING YOUR CLOTHES FROM THE SPRINKLERS!!!!
In this instance, the sprinkler heads were a good 8 feet off the ground. You’d need one of those clothes hanging devices from stores or at least a selfie stick to even think about hanging anything from the sprinkler head.
However, if you want to hang clothes from the sprinklers, you could always just use the other sprinkler head in the room. There’s no sticker under that one, so it must be okay, right?
Because sometimes, I start to think the rest of the world is normal and I’m the only one who can’t believe this stuff isn’t just made up.
