We Need Signs In Stupid

| Calgary, Canada | Right | December 2, 2011

(I am working at the security entrance of the airport. Baggage carts are not allowed into the gate area. I see a gentleman approaching with a cart and it doesn’t look like he is about to store it in the rack. Sure enough, he comes up to the entrance with his cart.)

Me: “I’m sorry, sir, but the cart is not allowed in the secure area. Please put it in the rack provided.”

Passenger: “Well, there’s no sign.”

(I point to one of the two signs framing our door clearly depicting a cart with a red circle and line running through it, indicating the cart was banned.)

Passenger: “Well, it’s not in English!”

Me: “Sir, it’s a pictograph. It’s supposed to be easily recognized and understood no matter what language you speak.”

    “Well, sir, it’s intended for people like yourself … those too stupid to read English or any other language. That’s why it’s in pictures.”

    Signs, signs, everywhere there’s signs. Blocking out the scenery breaking my mind. Do this, don’t do that, can’t you read the signs.
