Be polite? by golftragic

Be polite?

I saw this sign on the main concourse at Kandy railway station. I don't usually photograph toilets, but couldn't resist this sign on the Ladies' toilet (for locals, foreigners are catered for elsewhere).
I liked the ad for Rhino Roofing!

@fbailey Yeah, there's Rhino Roofing signs all over the place, I couldn't quite work out why so many.

@jgpittenger @samae I didn't actually go to check that out, sorry.

Do you need to tell people about this?

A little reminder never hurts.... Actually, I quite like the idea of having positive suggestions in public sight.

Fascinating :)

I would it prefer to say "Be polite to EVERYBODY"!!!

What an interesting find

The lettering on the signs really draws me in. Totally agree with @gigiflower :)

Good advice and maybe product placement gone bad?

LOL, if it's the ladies restroom, why specify be polite in front of women? Were there herds of men waiting at the entrance?

I have Domenico's same question. Why in front of the women's restrooms? Interesting anyhow. Fav

@yaorenliu I guess someone thinks so.

@robz @gigiflower I totally agree too. Didn't find the men in Sri Lanka any problem, unlike the numbers of men I saw urinating in public in India.

@onewing Interesting? Yes. Puzzling? Yes.

@joysabin I really don't know, but I guess there must be some rationale in its placement.

@domenicododaro @caterina Sorry folks, I don't know and probably should've asked our local guide. I was too busy with other things for that to reach the forefront of my mind. My guess is that there has been some problem/s sometime with men urinating in public, but I don't know. I didn't see anything like that in Sri Lanka, unlike India.
