Great Bad English

Periodically, I go through my stuff, with the idea of simplifying my life, getting rid of old crap, and getting organized. I never really take the project to its ultimate consequence (a well-organized room), but I do run across stuff that, filed away so many years ago, strikes me as new, like a piece of paper with several examples of funny, non-native English, among them:






1. In a Paris hotel elevator: "Please leave your values at the front desk."

2. Outside a Hong Kong dress shop: "Ladies have fits upstairs."

3. In a Bangkock Dry Cleaner's: "Drop your trousers here for best results."

4. In a Bucharest Hotel Lobby: "The lift is being fixed for the next day. During that time we regret that you will be unbearable."

5. In a Leipzig elevator: " Do not enter the lift backwards, and only when lit up."
