Welcome to Melvin’s Lists
©Signs I’ve actually seen
If you’re not familiar with Stuckey’s roadside stores, they’re places on highways where travelers can stop and buy cheap souvenirs and a hamburger made in an Easy-Bake oven, while their car is being filled. In the seventies there was a sign on hwy 75 that said Eat at Stuckey’s and get gas. Needless to say, that particular Stuckey’s is no longer in business.
A sign held by homeless person. Will work for food. Why won’t you work for money? Does that make it too much like a job?
A sign on the door of the men’s room at Home Depot. We rent tools.
Two signs on both sides of the one-way service road of a freeway. Guardrail damage. Somebody took the time and trouble to silk screen the signs, attach them to poles, dig two holes, and pour and set with concrete. Why didn’t they just fix the freakin’ guardrail? Probably could have done that with less time and money.
A sign on the back of a delivery truck. How’s my driving? You don’t know? If you don’t know how your driving is, then maybe you shouldn’t be driving.
I was sitting at a red light (in my car) when a big truck drove through the intersection in front of me. The sign on its side read: Erection Specialist and it had a large crane sticking up in the air.
A little country store near a lake apparently sold sandwiches and bait, but their sign said: Bait Sandwiches.
