We live in a world that is full of redundancy. Seriously, people need to learn how to get right to the point, cut straight to the chase and stop repeating themselves over and over again. I blame high school English classes for not doing their job. It’s a sad world we live in. Here are 25 signs that feel the need to repeat themselves.
1. Whiteboard cleaner
You already said that it’s whiteboard cleaner– you don’t need to say it again.
2. Buy 1 get 1 free
Ok, I think we get the idea. But thanks for hammering it home anyway.
3. Double stop signs
We’re sure the extra sign is because of construction, but it is funny seeing two signs that say the same thing right next to each other.
4. It must a bar
Ok, we get it. It’s a Mexican bar and a grill and bar. Because apparently those are two separate and distinct things.
5. Hey– here’s the garbage room, in case you missed the signs
The sign guy gets a little bit carried away sometimes. He must really like his job.
6. Fat free and non fat
Just in case you were concerned about it having fat– it doesn’t.
7. What was it before?
Wasn’t it always a men’s room?
8. No bills, no bills and no checks
If they don’t take bills over $20…then why would they take bills over $50….hmmmmmm.
9. It’s closed when it’s closed
That just seems a little bit redundant and unnecessary, doesn’t it?
10. Don’t press hard
Use gentle pressure. Don’t press hard. If you press hard it will come crashing down. We have to repeat it several times because of the idiots who don’t listen to instructions.
11. Can you spot the difference?
We’ll give you a hint— there is none, aside from color and text placement.
12. Makeshift TP dispenser
Yeah, that was entirely unnecessary.
13. My favorite title: fortifying fortifier
14. Peanuts are in this
We get that they have to be vigilant because of allergies…but isn’t this just a little bit overkill?
15. Peel back the label…
Only to discover that it says the exact same thing underneath. How useless.
16. So much natural flavor
We were unaware that natural flavor had so many different elements to it.
17. Double microwaves
So you can heat up your Cup Noodles and your burrito at the same time.
18. It’s the room room
19. Place in file and file
Isn’t that what a file is for? For filing? These directions are very direct.
20. Save the forest
Don’t cut down trees…wait…aren’t you wasting a tree by printing your little paper with a tree?
21. 25 cents in cents
Well, what other kind of cents could it be? Obviously they aren’t talking about sense….
22. Peep in
Just in case you missed the panel of glass, here’s a peephole too. Just to keep you busy.
23. Pre-paid pump required before pumping
Isn’t it easier to say, ‘pay before you pump?’ Saves words AND time…and brain cells.
24. Double exits
Just in case you don’t know where to go…the signs will point you.
25. Grape container contains grapes
We think this container has grapes.
