I took this photo this week in downtown Washington, D.C.
A U.S. Postal Service priority mail sticker stuck onto a pole with a picture of ice cream–2 scoops–with dollar signs on them. And an eye in a pyramid on the lower left.
I am not sure whether the mail sticker was just a part of the grafitti here or whether someone was trying to make a statement about the financial state-of-affairs of the Postal Service–losing money–and the loses stacking up over time, as the watchful eye of Government looks on.
I love getting mail like everyone else–except bills and junk mail.
But with a multitude of technology (email, texts, and so on) replacing traditional paper mail–the Post Office needs a new business model.
How about a serious focus on package delivery (for all the e-Commerce ordering we are doing)?
Or then again, would anyone mind an ice cream counter in every post office to make some happy faces and real money? 😉
Going to a restaurant the other night, I stepped into the men’s room for a minute and noticed this sticker on the right of the mirror that said “Great Work” in big yellow letters on the red background.
I wondered what a strange sign to put in such a private setting as if we need applause for going to the bathroom or washing our hands.
Then again, if you’ve seen many men’s bathrooms, it could certainly be a time for kudos when it is kept clean and people use good personal hygiene–hence, the other sticker on the left, “It’s cool to care!”
The frog sticker in the middle, he’s just keeping an eye on things and thanking everyone for the job well done.
This is a funny commentary on our society these days where people seem to need a pat on the back for everything–even the highly mundane and personal.
Presumably, going to the men’s room will never be the same boring, uncaring event again–at least at this fine eating establishment. 😉
