Word Power

Thursday, 3 January 2008

The choice of words for public signage is always so important. Here are just 2 examples of signs which we thought could have been worded a LOT better.

Buggy Service signage at Bangsar Village II

Han pointed this one out. As a programmer, I suppose there are plenty of negative attributes to the word “buggy” with regards to his line of work. What the signboard was actually trying to tell us was that they have a courtesy car service that takes you to and fro your parked car on a little golf cart. It’s meant to be a safety thing. A good service, I think.

Signage at parking lot that says 'Take All Valuables'

Now was that a note to me, the one who parked the car, or the other guy who plans to peek into cars for valuables?
