"Hey! I found this notice in a museum in Texas. By the way, could it be possible that the funny translations have the real context's name and the sender, so we can get points because of this. For instance, I found mine in Ripley's museum in San Antonio Texas.
Yappr is a really great site!! Thanks. Greetings from Mexico! Bye!"
While this isn't the traditional "One Way" sign you see in the states - the message is still pretty clear. We appreciate you sharing your photo and thanks for your submission!
Oh yes, please be sure to sign your name whenever you submit a photo. We want to know who you are!
See all the ways you can stay connected to friends and family

How about a little sensitivity here please!? In the states, words describing people as "old", "weak", "sick" or "cripple" are often viewed as inappropriate way to describe someone. One alternative message might be "Seats reserved for people with disabilities".

You're taking the metro train and you see this gem of a sign. Although you very well may get a breeze through this gap, I don't think this translation is correct! Remember to WATCH the gap!

This message is completely confusing at first! "CircumStance" appears to refer to the circumstance of pollution and they're asking for your help in preventing the pollution from ever happening. How? By doing your part and placing garbage where it belongs...in the trash can!
I'm not sure about you, but I like "Keep it clean" as the message here. Even better...forget the message, as the image says it all.
