It’s always bugged me that the Babies R Us near my home has this mixed-message sign on its entry door. The white-line-divied red circle screams “don’t go there!” but the wording says “Entrance Only.”
The other day I happened to have my camera with me, so I finally documented the insanity. Above is the view upon coming into the store — despite the fear-inducing red warning symbol above the arrow that tells you you should come in.
Then there’s what you see when you’re standing next to the Bob the Builder ride-on toy (which we use without giving the truck any money and just waiting until it spontaneously erupts in “Yes we can!” Obama may not have won Joe the Plumber, but he got Bob the Builder!)
Have you seen similarly problematic signage? What are the store designers thinking, and why has no one fixed this in the three years I’ve been coming to this store?
