That’s what the sign says!
I went to the company technical library the other day and on the restroom door across the hall it has these two signs juxtaposed: “Use Caution When Opening” and “Women”. At first I thought it was just a coincidence but there is an additional sign below these, spaced well away from them, that reads “Caution: Open Door Slowly”. And there aren’t any additional signs on the mens room door except “Men”. Corporate humor? Or safety information gone awry?
The morning guy on the radio played Bob Dylan singing “Mr. Tambourine Man” and then said that many songwriters were not the best performers of their songs and other singers who covered them did a better job than the original. (I know, we’ve had this thread.) But then he played William Shatner’s version. I had heard Shatner did an album and that it was bad, but until this day I didn’t know how bad it was.
Speaking of radio, I had to give my dad a ride last night and I got to sit in the car and wait for 45 minutes or so. I flipped the radio back and forth from a political talk radio show to Art Bell’s “Ghost to Ghost” – a special edition of his “Coast to Coast” show. One of the shows had a lot of gullible people calling in and talking about stuff that would be really scary if it were true but they were obviously self-deluded and would believe anything! The other was about ghosts.
