Emergency windows in trains are a joke. We will require another train to break them open, forget about those pins and screws.

If that was an inverted triangle, it would mean 'Give Way'.

Esteem bath! I like that

Once I shared a large house with a lot of people, and there was no lock on the bathroom door, but we had a sign to hang: bath in progress.

One day, two of us both had the same idea --- that it was an instruction in positive thinking!

Of course it is. A vehicle on an SH should yield only for the vehicles on an NH because priority is always for the drivers on the more prominant road. But how many know that anyway?

And I found this in Urwa Store in Mangalore.
Do not SPILT here!!

There seems to be some effort to clear up our area (which is nice) and a hand-written board carried these words:

Quote:
Don't dump here (in tamil)

Don't thought it (in English)
I guess they must have had Don't even think about it in mind!

We all know what happens when a very prominent Tamil movie star (his name starts with "R", ends with "T" and has "ajinikan" between those) thinks about something.

I think this means don't waste your time here.

Such messages are common in small eateries.
