    That would be offensive to J.A.Prestwick........

    At my work I had the sign that said;
    There are those that are in the loop
    There are those that are out of the loop
    And those who don't know there is a loop.

    lg
    no neat sig line

    I remember a sign that went something like “If all you do is follow, the scenery never changes”

    I walked into a shop once that had a sign that read, I have an arrangement with our bank. They don't fix things and I don't give credit.

    Found on the wall of many an old-school auto shop:

    "We shoot every 10th a****le who asks to borrow a tool. The 9th one just left".

    The original:

    Das computermachine ist nicht fuer gefingerpoken und mitten grabben.

    Ist easy schnappen der springen werk, blowenfusen und poppencorken mit spitzensparken.

    Ist nicht fuer gewerken bei das dumpkopfen.

    Das rubbernecken sichtseeren keepen das cotten-pickenen hans in das pockets muss; relaxen und watchen das blinkenlichten.

    My translation:
    Attention all you onlookers!

    The computer is not for poking with your fingers or grabbing with your hands.

    It is easy to snap the spring works, blow the fuses with popping sounds and spitting sparks everywhere.

    It is not for use by dummies.

    You rubberneckers and sightseers must keep your cotten-picken hands in your pockets; just relax and watch the blinking lights.
    "Blinkenlights." Posted in every computer room everywhere from the 1960's forward.

    you know, that could always work out as a win-win for the person borrowing the tools..

    In my office at my shop in Texas I had a sign on my wall that read, To err is human. To forgive is not my policy. Another one read, I might not always be right but I am always the boss.
    Another one read, I have a wife and girlfriend and a note at the bank and they are all 30days over due!
