15+ Funny Signs That Told Us Things We Never Thought We'd Need To Hear

There are some unspoken rules about life that we all come to understand as we grow up. No one needs to tell us these things, we just connect the dots on our own and figure out what's okay and what's not.

Some people...well, they simply don't learn these rules, so they need a little guidance. That's why these signs that tell us things we never thought we'd need to hear still pop up.

1. "I’ve never seen a hotel pool sign so blunt before."

Reddit | TurtlesTurnMeOn

In its defense, it sort of has to be. This isn't a subject that should be tip-toed around.

Reddit | Just_Barren_Mind

People will try. You think it's unnecessary, but people will try it, no matter how much we all want to think otherwise.

5. "A sign telling us that Leroy from the McKinleyville barbershop has donated 100 gallons of blood."

Reddit | aikinurse

To the barber shop? Was it his own blood? This leaves a lot of questions.

(But really, this is a huge feat, congrats to Leroy!)

6. "This bag of crisps tells you the best before date in astrological signs."

Reddit | Leowong8225

Someone in the comments clarified that Taurus, in this case, is a type of potato that was used to make the chips.

The zodiac sign idea is funnier, though. I'll only eat chips that expire under Aquarius.

Absolutely torn between wanting, no, needing to know the story here and also not wanting to mystery to be lost.

The way this is worded makes it seem like they want you to come back on purpose instead. Well, if you insist.

17. "Funny sign at my [veterinarian's] office."

Reddit | quintin9
