Antisocial lighting?

[Picture of sign about antisocial lighting]SUPERMARKET FIGHTS ANTISOCIAL BEHAVIOUR USING LIGHTING!

Hard to believe I know, but it seems to be true — according to the sign in a Morrison’s Toilet.

It says:

CAUTION

The lights in this toilet

have been altered to deter

antisocial behaviour.

It may take a few minutes

for your eyes to adjust.

Can you believe this? Is it possible? Does it work? Is is safe? Is it legal? Is it moral? Things are definitely getting worse when this sort of thing can be allowed to occur without debate. I think the public ought to be informed that they may be subjected to conditions and forms of behavioural control.

Red Tape Departments

[Picture of a Direct and Care car, Glasgow]DIRECT AND CARE?

What on earth does that mean? Who thought up these ridiculous council department names?

If the purpose is to confound the ordinary council tax payers, then they are doing a very good job indeed. My point is that things should be simple and straightforward so that we can all understand who does what — and who to call when we need something done by the council.

Any suggestions for what the department for “Direct and Care Services” does? Things are getting worse!

John The Dots!

A GRAMMATICALLY INCORRECT BUSINESS NAME APPEARS IN SHAWLANDS!

[Picture of shop sign for letting agency in shawland]

The new letting agency on Kilmarnock Road opened up recently, and I could hardly believe my eyes when I saw the additional full-stop after the first name.  Clearly, the business (and person) is John C. Boyle — where the middle name is abbreviated to a single letter ‘C’.  Such contractions are indicated by full-stops. This simple rule seems to have been lost on this company, and may cost them business as a solicitor and letting agency; people may expect them to have an eye for detail and some evidence of a basic education!  Things are still getting worse.

High Drainage

YET ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF A STUPID DRAIN LOCATION!

[Picture of drain miles away form puddle]Just click on the picture to enlarge. Is it so difficult for road workers, foremen, drainage specialists, town planners and the rest to realise that drains should always be at the lowest point? Things are certainly getting worse!
