This is the sign that hangs on the door of an antique store in Charleston, SC. I have stared through the windows of this shop many a time, yearning to leisurely browse through their rooms of junk and treasure, but “2 X seriously” way too intimidated to ring that intercom!
What would possess the owners of a store to put up a sign that basically scares potential customers away? (Heaven forbid they let you in and you don’t find anything you want to buy – just imagine!!)
It’s beyond baffling.
And then I wonder, if I had to put (an honest) sign on my front door, what would it say?
Ring the doorbell,
take a seat on the porch,
and give me at least ten minutes to clean up.
