Sign on the Westray Ferry


I love workplace signs. There’s something about working in close quarters with people that can really wind you up. The office kitchen with the rabid messages about wiping up milk spills. The workplace canteen with the strident “These tables are self-clearing” messages (“I’d better leave my tray here then as it says that the tables clear themselves.”) The gents’ toilet with “We aim to please, will you aim too please” bolted to the door. Here’s a classic sign from Orkney Ferries. Now what would make someone go and laminate that?
