We've seen this sign before, but I liked Christin H's take on it:
"Maybe it just means that when they are watering the plants, it might make you have to pee, and then when you are crossing your legs and trying to hold it, you will be more likely to fall straight backwards."
Best to pee before shopping for plants.
Thanks Christin and thanks to Cynthia H for making Christian send this in to SGF! We love the word of mouth...!
I'm amazed at the variety in graphics for "Wet Floor" cones and signs. Are people working in safety graphic companies constantly striving to improve the image? Is there a competition? Seems like it. Let's take a look at all the varieties.
Here is a very standard sign, though interestingly, it doesn't tell you what to be cautious about. But Rubbermaid is making dang sure that you know who's warning you.
This one is more clear. Wet floor. Good.
But then why does it look like the guy is trying not to fall into a triangle shaped crevasse?
Again, more specific with the warning, but this guy looks like he's trapped inside a triangle shaped room and can't escape. What is with the triangle shaped warning anyway?
Jeremiah sent this in and I feel bad for this tortured soul who is kept floating in a hanging triangle cage. Someone let him out!
This guy knows he's stuck. TWO triangle barriers! He's just chillin, waiting for the Navy Seals.
This guy has Lionel Ritchie on the brain and is going to try dancing on the ceiling.
I LOVE this guy. Even going down, he does it with style, though less Fosse and more Twyla Tharp.
At least this guy is out of the triangle, but it seems more like levitation. And if you can levitate, you don't have to worry about slipping. Unless this area has less gravity and that is what the real warning is.
And my favorites sent in by my Mom. The dudes dancing a jig at Ross:
Keep sending in the wet floor signs -- I'll have a 2nd collection soon!
If you run across a safety graphic, especially ones in other countries, please take a photo and send it to me. I'll post your image and give you full credit. Send the images to: SafetyGraphicFun [at] gmail [dot] com.
