There was a Sign, Pt.2

So this sign is outside my library right now.

Remember the 4 rules for a successful sign?
1. See the Sign
2. Read the Sign
3. Believe the Sign
4. Do what the Sign FREAKING SAYS

Lets standard letter grade the sign:

1. See the Sign - It's placed right outside our doors. If it were right in front of the doors, it would be excellent. "B"

2. Read the Sign - The large text is good and simple, and our sign makers use a little creative subversion of rule to get the sign noticed. "A"

3. Believe the Sign - The sign text is blue on a pink background and looks a little too "cutesy". Also the wording is in the form of a question. Questions aren't very authoritative unless someone in uniform is asking them. "C"

4. Do what the Sign FREAKING SAYS - Considering the sign has no date or times listed for when someone can sign up only a vague location and phone number (blanked out for anonymity's sake), I don't think number 4 will be accomplished which is the most important thing. "D"

Grade Overall: "C+"

And a big THANK YOU to my co-vampire for taking this digital picture for me. I know all the smoking students looked at you funny, but it was worth it. Kept me from bugging you for an hour, didn't it?

Yes, the weird look from the kid was definitely worth the lack of bugging. You're special, that's all I'm going to say :-)

To my dear co-vampire:
Ah, if only people could actually hear the endearing way you say, "You're special." Then they'd truly know how much you love me.

Spike: Considering someone on the day crew took umbrage to the sign, removed it, called the number telling the students to collect it, and wrote a letter telling them that their sign had not been approved for display and would not have been approved if submitted, I don't know how many more of these dear things I'll see, and the reason I know all of this is b/c one of the poor students came to pick it up, I had to go retrieve for him, and I quickly read the letter before giving it to him.

LOL. A little Hitler in practice perhaps.

We once had a group that kept putting up little notices for something like a Native lesbian healing circle or some such thing. Our reference assistant would take 'em down, they'd keep popping back up.
