Rangers’ Fans as Pals

IN A GLASGOW CARD SHOP FOR VALENTINE’S DAY, I NOTICED A STRANGE SIGN.

[Picture of card shop sign]A Blue Nose Friend (in Glasgow) is a pal who is a Rangers’ Fan. While it may be true that “Everyone needs friends”, it is debatable that we all need friends who support Glasgow Rangers!

 

Fire Exit, No Really

EVERYONE KNOWS THAT IT IS IMPORTANT TO KEEP FIRE EXITS CLEAR.

[Picture of fire exit with many signs]I spotted a Fire Exit recently, and was struck by the number of signs.  Four fire exit signs and four keep clear signs. It is as if they really, really mean it — and yet it was nearly blocked by a large street bin as the door would hit this bin when opened in an emergency.

How odd.

Scum top cake?

IKEA IS PECULIAR; IT HAS DAFT NAMES FOR EVERYTHING.

[Pic of weirdly named Ikea cake - skumtopp]For example I spotted a lovely and potentially delicious cake in my local Ikea — unfortunately, it was called Sotsak Skumtopp.

Good grief!  Things are certainly getting worse when cakes called skumtopp are best sellers!

 

Needless Carelessness

GLASGOW IS A TOUGH PLACE, AND SHAWLANDS HAS A FAIR SHARE OF THE CITY’S TROUBLED SOULS.

[Photo of syringe]I took this photograph with my cameraphone across from a primary school in Shawlands. Yes, sadly it is a syringe. A needle discarded by a drug addict.

Goodness; things are getting worse when school children, toddlers, pets and everyone else can be stabbed in the foot by a discarded, and probably infected, hypodermic needle on a busy pavement.
