Theme Photo: "No..." Sign

I am not on the list of blogs that are participating in this month's theme photo because I forgot to add my name to the list last month. Nonetheless, I am posting a photo for the theme.

This photo was taken inside the subway train and the sign warns passengers not to hold the doors when it is closing. Unfortunately, many people disregard the sign and hold the doors anyway.

Happy Theme Day everyone.

Happy July, Ming!

mind the gap!

Sometimes I don't, sometimes I do said...

That must hurt, if they insist on disregarding this sign!

Chuck Pefley said...

OK. I'd rather hold hands :)

babooshka said...

I had do not rather than no too. It's a universal sign, but again you'd think peoeple would know not to hold onto them wouldn't you!

pas bête comme recommandation, on dirait une publicité pour un péplum.

not as stupid recommendation, it looks like an advertisement for a péplum.

What the heck - who cares if you are registered: certainly not I.

I like the image of Atlas holding the doors ajar ...

I like the little guy in the graphic. You know, there are times something just makes me laugh. . . like that graphic. Without the wording, I don't think I'd have any idea what it meant.

Oh - I find it so irritating when people don't do what the signs say! Don't you? My post is quite similar, actually - someone else breaking the rules...

So will the subway still move with the doors open if people dont shut them? Or will it beep loudly or not run that way? :) thanks.

Ming the Merciless said...

The alarm would beep until someone lets go of the doors -- like an elevator. It would be dangerous if the train moves before the doors close.

Ugh..I hateh when people do that! And I hate when people get on the train and crowd the door, so that other people can't get on, and when it's time for other people to get off the train, these people don't get out of the way!! Grrrr...

I often ignore signs. It makes me feel like a rebel.

How does one join in on the theme?

Chuckeroon said...

You mean NY is no better than London?

Nice to have yr recent visits Ming. Tks.

USelaine said...

I'll bet a lot of people ignore that one - good catch, that fits NY.

Sometimes that just happens. Hey your bag gets stuck as you take a flying leap to make that tube.

marley said...

Glad you joined in! I'd be to worried about falling out of the train to hold the doors open!

Happy Theme Day :)

My backpack got stuck once in a French gate when I was getting off the train to Disneyland there....they had to come extract me!

I'm on those trains everyday, and everyday, someone inadvertently holds the door. Nothing you can do.

Paz said...

LOL! A very familiar sign for me. ;-)

We have similar signs in the trains here too.

But sometimes if the train's so packed like in Spore, you need to hold on the doors, if not you will fall.


Happy Theme Day
