Signs that make you think... or laugh

So today I was sitting at the bus stop, waiting for the bus (obviously). I started reading the many different signs posted and my eye was drawn to one the told of a cleaning crew that would come to your house to clean it for you. Some parts of the sign went as follows, and I quote:

(there were exactly four question marks)

yes doing) FOR YOU!!!!!

-A deep cleaning, we let your place sparkling, just ready to moving in.

and so on and so forth.... haha

I wasn't sure what to think of this sign... maybe call them and help them put one out that made grammatical sense.(I'm not sure that sentence makes sense either and I wrote it!!) But then (while laughing at how funny all those sentences sound) I realized... maybe that was their trademark! That is what they were going for... great cleaners... not so great with advertising.

I saw another sign that made me laugh the other day... I've never seen this before in my life but I kid you not it was real. (Maybe people who have seen the
se signs wont find them so funny?) Isn't a farmer, in a tractor, crossing the street semi obvious?? I would hope that it is a given that in a farming area, farmers might cross the street now and again! I think the main reason it made me laugh is because they put up deer crossing signs to help drivers to look for the deer. Drivers need to look for deer because the deer aren't very intelligent when a car is coming at 50 mph! They don't run away from the car, they run into it! (Anybody who has hit a deer can attest to this) It makes it seem like the farmer is an animal that doesn't know what to do when a fast car is coming! Too funny!!

I decided a post about funny signs was necessary after seeing two that made me laugh in less than a week. I remember my brother Zach sending home all sorts of funny signs while he was on his mission.... I wonder what funny signs other people have seen. Here are a few that I found after doing some google research. Enjoy!!

At least they are honest right?

Make sure you catch the fine print... sorry kinda small:)

I just found this one... couldn't resist! haha

Happy Halloween:)

So, I love Halloween for one thing... but this year was extra fun because I got creative with my costume (with the help of my mom and a 10 year old) and had a fabulous birthday! I was out in the lobby at Hill Auditorium after the USO/UPO Halloween concert and saw a little boy dressed as a waiter with real food glued to the tray. I thought it was BRILLIANT! So I decided to copy his/his mom's idea and be a waitress! I borrowed an apron from work, dug out my EFY name tag, and went to work deciding what foods I wanted to have on my tray. My mom suggested wine glasses with a piece of cake so I started getting creative. I bought two cute wine glasses (which are both now broken... they didn't even last a week!) and a plate. Then I bought two jello packs orange and red, some styro-foam, and frosting. The finished product looked great and I think people loved it. One of the greatest costumes I have ever done!! I then glued everything to the tray and it looked completely legit! I did end up turning it over too quickly and lost one of the glasses. The other one lasted until last night when Helaman accidentally knocked it over. At least one lasted throughout the Halloween celebrations! So that was fun!

My birthday was also great... it felt like a five day birthday which anyone can appreciate. It was my 21st birthday so people seemed extra thoughtful. Some amazing friends in my ward sent me flowers! They are BEAUTIFUL! I am doing everything I can to keep them alive and well for as long as possible. My mom also sent me new make-up (always a favorite!) and a v-slicer! I have already used it many times and I am loving having it around our apartment. My dad gave me $100 which was also GREAT! People in the ward also took me to various meals, with cards and gifts on top. It was great and I couldn't have asked for anything else!
