Safety Gets Dumber
Another one for our HOT TOASTER PAGE.
This sign was photographed by a reader in the room of a major city Hotel. I know that some people are concerned about picking up nasties like tinea and planters warts from public showers. When I was in the Army we showered in thongs (flip flops). I am assuming that there have been slip and fall incidents in this Hotel (probably not many) and this sign is the knee-jerk reaction of an over zealous and non-thinking safety person. Is putting up a sign like this really effective? The people who are so concerned about the risk to their health from disease are going to ignore the risk of slipping and falling (and the sign). This sign is only going to annoy and offend the vast majority of the Hotel’s Guests. If a Hotel shower is cleaned properly on a daily basis then the risk of disease spread is probably zero. Perhaps a better sign would be something like “Our Hotel rooms are thoroughly cleaned on a daily basis – have a fun and healthy stay with us”??????
This picture is going straight to our HOT TOASTER PAGE.

This equally condescending sign was posted in a holiday resort – so have their guests never taken a shower?
