Friday Photo

I read this sign years ago, at the Classic Fun Center in Sandy, Utah.

I’ve been told mine is an odd sense of humor. If pressed, I think this sign falls in my category of finding warning signs and disclaimers hilarious. You know they exist because someone did something that needed warning against…

    The mind does boggle somewhat at the possibilities. Maybe hospitalised because of a disastrous triple salko and double flush combination…

    I’ll bet there are women who try to skate around that requirement.

    “Getting your skates on” when leaving a “restroom” makes perfect sense. 😁

      You certainly wouldn’t want to rest in your skates.

    Just be relieved Tonya Harding hasn’t ripped the sign off the wall, stomping past it on her way to a pit stop.

    My father was something of a humorist, but also a Rugby Union referee. During a game of Rugby the referee may choose to issue a ‘caution’ to any player deemed guilty of foul play – meaning that any further infringement will result in that player being ‘sent off’, dismissed from the remainder of the game, in other words.
    So whenever my father saw a road sign that said ‘CAUTION – STEEP DESCENT’ or the like, he would feel obliged to immediately point to the sign and say, “Right, steep descent – one more like that and you’re off!’
    I suppose you had to be there …..

      😀 Have you ever heard of ‘dad jokes?’

        Indeed I have – and was treated to more than a few growing up.

    How funny! My current work in progress has a scene about my twelve-year-old protagonist going to the bathroom at the urinal, and he keeps rolling backward on his skates.

      Really! This sign was because of *you* then!

    Is there a similar warning for the men, or is this purely a female issue?

    You have to wonder 🧐

    Is there one of these starting with “Men” for the restroom or were the ladies the only ones decapitating people with their skates while going to the bathroom?

      I didn’t even think to look at the men’s room. I just let my imagination run with this one!

    my guess is this sign was at a hockey rink, and that yes, somebody had an incident in the restroom because they were wearing skates. I hope the person didn’t try to sue the owners of the hockey rink…

    This sign reminds me of that pic I took of a sign in the men’s room of a Vietnamese restaurant to remember to not flush sanitary napkins.

      I always, always wonder at the story behind the signs.
