Signs of our times Mk 2: Sept 6

Front door of, would you believe, a shop that specialises in eyebrows. And no, my ears don't normally stick out like that, the bloomin' mask loops pull 'em out.
yeh yeh blame the mask hahahahahahaha

@annied That's my story and I'm sticking to it!.
September 6th, 2020  
Oh yeah...this is crazy!
September 6th, 2020  
Another amazing sign!

@annied I see Annie beat me to a smart comment! Lots of signs around everywhere at present!

@dide I'm still sticking to my story! As for signs, it's a real growth industry in Oz.

@taffy The eyebrows bit, the sign, or maybe both? This is a double High Street frontage, when it was opened I couldn't believe women would be silly enough to pay good money for this (and other similar sort of things). Clearly, I was wrong, the shop's been there for a couple of years now.

@ludwigsdiana Far too many darned signs Diana. So many that people stop reading them at times.

Why not write an essay when you could just say it in one sentence - one person at a time! All the rest just follows! I too noticed the sticking out ears problem when I caught a glimpse of myself in a shop window. Not a good look! Lol!

@pamknowler Well said Pam. Our plethora of signage has displayed widespread ignorance of good English, let alone precision and conciseness.

Big argument going on here that you are allowed to go into salons like these for eyebrow treatments, but partners are not allowed to go to hospital with their wives who are giving birth for any scans or antenatal appointments - only for the birth itself once labour is established. They have to do everything else alone. Absolutely bonkers!

Thank God I don't have eyebrow treatment.

I think we will all need our ears taped back again after Covid.

Mostly our signs just say 'no mask, no entry'
I don't like the masks that fit around the ears, all mine either have ties or elastic that goes around my head.
September 6th, 2020  
I didn't realise that was you, I thought that was someone behind the sign hanging it, not in front! Err what is eyebrow threading?
September 6th, 2020  
Lol. I’m sure your ears always are out like this

Same sorts of inexplicable inconsistencies here Casa. The Big Boy footballers, AFL , ARL and the A-League (soccer) players and officials have all been allowed to enter and stay in Queensland where the borders are locked tight for the rest of us. Which includes dying relatives, funerals, weddings, births, recuperation from major surgeries etc, etc. Lots of muttering and and discontent about that.

@onewing Not wrong. Mind you, that'd be an new variation on the old threat 'if you do (whatever) I'll pin your ears back'!
September 7th, 2020  
@onewing Eyebrow treatment? I have less than no interest in same.
September 7th, 2020  
@salza The thing here seems to be why use two words when you can use a paragraph. I don't like the ear-loops, but I haven't seen any here with ties or elastic like that.
September 7th, 2020  
@fbailey I don't have the foggiest idea FB. I have less than no experience with, or interest in, eyebrow treatments.

@jgpittenger Only when I think someone's talking about me Jane. 🥴
September 7th, 2020  
No prisoners taken there! Like the strong and well explained rules
September 7th, 2020  
@joysabin Nope, just do as you're told.
September 7th, 2020  
That's a lot of instructions to read!!
September 7th, 2020  
@gilbertwood Wait till you see the servo front door!
