Nigel (Monday's letters), Letts Drive?
Nigel - "wet floor" signs in public lavatories!
John, Diss Norfolk (please don't!)
Nigel (Monday's letters), there is a warning sign at Colchester Railway Station which reads: "Do not run on the stairs, use the handrail". Surely running on the handrail is a tad more dangerous.

There was the classic "Drink Canada Dry".
I often see suggestions that Bill Posters should be prosecuted - anyone know what he did?
I recall a door leading off a flight of stairs at a London Underground station with the single word "refuse" written scruffily on it. I always wanted to add the word "no" underneath, but never actually did.

This may be an urban myth but a church hall's kitchen once had a notice "Anyone using a teapot would they please wash their bottom and stand upside-down in the sink".

I often see signs saying "Door alarmed" and wonder what it knows that I don't...

Oh, yes, definitely. "Refuse collection!" "Entrance!" "Free drinks!" And I'm still searching for that potter we're all supposed to be harrying.
Elspeth, Isle of Wight
I often see the order "wet paint", but hardly anyone does.

Sorry, Jo and Paul (Monday letters), but I think Themistocles Zammit is the best name I've encountered.

"Clegg pledges £100m for childcare" - I bet the one word he didn't use was "pledge".

Re this article going forward, I think we need to take a helicopter viewpoint of the situation, draw a firm line under it, and cascade downwards all the lessons learnt. Glad that's all cleared up...
