A picture (or a sign) says a thousand words
We always have signs posted in our facilities, right? We have lovely signs welcoming visitors, and we have signs bragging about how awesome our facility is.
We publicize awards we win, and we post signs if we are a “5-star” facility, well, just about everywhere. During Flu season, we warn everyone with signs of a cold or the flu to please not visit or to wear a surgical mask.
But yesterday, I was in Texas driving around and asked the person driving to stop so I could take a picture of what I saw posted outside of a nursing home:
All I can say is, “Only in Texas!”
So what is the wildest sign you've ever seen or posted in a facility? Please share in the comment area below. I can't wait to see what you've got!
