While stopped at an intersection

While stopped at an intersection I noticed a man standing on the corner in front of a Burger King. He was holding a ign that read “Will work for food.” If he had only looked up, he would have noticed that the Burger King sign directly a bove him read “Now hiring.”At an office: “This job is only a test had it been an actual job, you would have recieved raises, bonses and promotions.” SEEN ON A BILLBOARD ALONG A HIGHWAY: “Caution: Objects in the mirror may have flunked drivers education.”

In a Tacoma, Washington men’s

In a Tacoma, Washington men’s clothing store: “15 men’s wool suits, $10. They won’t last an hour!”On a shopping mall marquee: “Archery Tournament-Ears pierced”Outside a country shop: “We buy junk and sell antiques.”In the window of an Oregon store: “Why go elsewhere and be cheated when you can come here?”In a Maine restaurant: “Open 7 days a week and weekends.”
