Beware of Pickpockets and Loose Women

I saw this sign on the window of an apartment in the Lower East Side recently and thought it was a hoot. Apparently, the person (most like a man) has a message to share with everyone.

If you could put a sign outside your window, what would it say?

Especially beware or loose women, LOL. And he has the anti-deft thing on the windows. Why are those always so hugly - it spoil every nice windows or very goodlooking buildings. There should be another option.

I believe my sign would say, "Crazy? Yep, that's me. My motto: It's better than being dull and boring."

I suppose there's some room for interpretation there. Either a message to pickpockets (and those others) to beware. Alternatively, the rest of us should beware of them. Well, why spoil a good window?

I would leave a sign with "Welcome!" ... but possibly not leave it there every day and hour!

"Enter at your own risk..... Mom has gone mad"
I'd like to have that on my window some days!
Seriously, I would love to have a NO SMOKING ON PREMISES.....
I have family/friends that smoke and it drives us crazy to pick up their cigs and mess (plus that smell).....

Oh for the love of food! said...

Hey Ming, I don't think that I'm the type that would put up a sign of any sort outside my place, but I saw one that was pretty funny sometime back while visiting a friend. It said..
"Friends.. WELCOME!
Family.. PLEASE MAKE AN APPOINTMENT.
