The Old Dog Presents: A Sign of The Times Contest!

in contest •  18 days ago

When people show a lack of good manners others are sometimes forced to put up signs.


I'm touring around the Sirmione area on the Lago di Garda and I came across a sign put up in frustration over an all too common problem.  


Check Out This Tactfully Frustrated Sign.


This shop owner in Desenzano di Garda had put up with one too many four legged urinators and decided to take action.


I give the shop owner two 10's. One for penmanship and one for creativity.


Here's The Translation

I love animals and every form of life that the LORD has created.

I love every race of men.

I also love not wasting my precious time cleaning urine from your Dog off of the corner of this wall every morning.

For this reason I ask your co-operation so that I don't end up hating, with all my soul, dogs and their owners.


Thank you. 


Here you can see a photo of what made the shop owner so mad!

I'd like to see some of the creative signs that you've seen people put up in response to the rude behaviour of others.

@kus-knee,
"කුණු දැම්මොත් ගුටි" or "කුණු දැමීම බල්ලන්ට පමණි"
I see these signs around lots of places in my country.
කුණු දැම්මොත් ගුටි - If you needs to get punch, you can put your wastes here
කුණු දැමීම බල්ලන්ට පමණි - Only dogs could put wastes here

But I think the country got lots of dogs than men lol :D

Cheers~

Thanks for this. Any photos?

Some folks just refuse to obey a sign! Such gall! ;-)

Very true

I am not sure if this is exactly what you are looking for but it came to my mind when I saw this contest :) I took this shot on a parking lot in Puerto Aventuras, a little coastal town in Mexico. Smiling people only! :D

I love it!

·

So nice and so Mexico! =)

Is it considered bad manners to T-bone an elephant?! Elephant xing-1.jpg

·

Yes that would be bad manners.

Fun contest! :) Here's a sign I found in Chicago. It's about dogs too, but it didn't seem to work:

Yes that is a failure!

Thanks. Translation?

"If nothing saves us from death, may love at least save us from life."
Neruda won the Nobel Prize for literature.

I don't think anyone read the sign, haha ;)

Good one!

That's really brought the person to the nervous state, unfortunately we are still far from perfect education. Thank you for an interesting competition.

·

Yes we need to keep improving!

I thought this one was rather witty @kus-knee.

It is in a local cafe where there are 2 rooms, one designated for laptop use and the other one not. These signs appear on all the tables in the non laptop use room. 😂

·

Haha! I like this one!

·
·

Yep. You just know someone going to move it! 😂

·
·
·

As long as it's not YOU!! LOL

·
·
·
·

I might well have done if they hadn't put the sign there! 😂

·
·
·
·
·

Ohhhhhh! You naughty girl!!! LOL ❤️

·

Good one. Thanks!

·

Yes, but her problem, although similar was another one.

Great sign. And it's true, sometimes dog owners don't think. WHen I walked Ivan in our little English village I always stopped him from using the shops and planters on the high street. Our own two flower pots on our door which opens onto the high, did not fare as well :/

·

Poor dogs don't have much choice in many areas.

So it 's global .. Thought it was happening only in my country..

·

It seems that way!

Ha! I can see why the owner was "pissed" lol. I will have to see what I have :)

·

Yes you got it right. I look forward to your sign!

I saw this in Mexico, Cancun 😄😆. Some people don't understand that feeding wild animals is very dangerous. Sometimes theirs stupid behaviour can cost even life.

Yes it lures them to shore for the real food......people!

Some body doesn't like a particular brand of politics.

I saw this guy when I was driving.

·

Wow, quite the plate!

I hope to find a sign! :-D.....
Io penso di sapere perché i cani pisciano proprio sulla sua casa, con una frase come "ad odiare con tutta me stessa, cani e propretari" ti verrebbe da p.... in bocca.... come si puó odiare un cane? Prima prendiamo il territorio agli animali, li obblighiamo a stare al guinzaglio, li diamo da mangiare uno schifo in scatoletta, poi inquiniamo il mondo con i nostri sacchettini con cui avvolgiamo i loro escrementi per tenerlo piú pulito e ora li mettiamo pure il divieto di marcare il loro territorio.... ma cosa devono fare questi poveri cani?

·

For sure the dogs are not to blame.

·
·

It's also an hard way to ask people for a favor: "or you do what I want or I hate you", it was better to write it in a gentler way, so the propretaries will respect him too....

I love this contest! I will be on the lookout for a sign!

I feel for the business owner. That is an original sign. Yes a good idea for a contest. Thanks @kus-knee

·

Let's hope that you can find a sign to show us.

That must be a fustrating sign really

·

·

Haha do dogs read down under?
