Borderline Retarded

Free drinks for ladies with nuts.....

I went to lunch today at this Mexican food joint with one of my co-workers. I excused myself to use the ladies room, and I was amused by the following sign:

"Please DO NOT throw tolit paper in the tolit. Please throw it in the garbage can"

At first I was chuckling to myself, because "toilet" was misspelled, and I am easily amused. Then, I actually read the sign...and thought, eewww. That's kind of gross for a restaurant, right? I kind of expected to go out and see this sign above the sink....

"Please DO NOT wash hands in the sink. Use the tolit"

  • My wife is Mexican and I think I have finally broken her of her habit of throwing her tolit paper in the tolit. But when I go visit the in-laws I have to throw my used tolit paper in the wastebasket.

  • KOM will have to plagarize some of the badly translated into English signs from other countries in this book he has. They are a riot!

  • a late comment, but i just came upon your blog: in central and south america, the plumbing cannot take any toilet paper without exploding. i have caused many a problem in many a hotel because i can never remember to throw my paper in the trash and not the "tolit". it's just a cultural thing. at least they provide a garbage can for it, which if you think about it is not that bad, when you consider all the poopy diapers that must be in restaurant trash cans everywhere.
