15 Funny Out Of Order Signs That Are Worth The Disappointment
It’s so important to find humour in everyday things. Otherwise, life can become flat and grey. When you live your life looking for things to be amused by, you will find yourself amused much more than the other people who are bored and despondent. That’s why funny out of order signs are a ray of sunshine on a cloudy day.
The best part about them is that people probably have no idea how much joy these funny out of order signs actually bring to people. They don’t mean to be funny, they’re just funny by accident… which can be much more hilarious IMO.
Check out these funny out of order signs and get the breath of fresh air in your day that you need.
1. At least they nailed the double “u” in vacuum
I have a feeling this is a simple English as a second language mishap, but it’s still pretty cute to call it a bacuum.
2. Broked in so many ways
There are only a few ways to label a paper towel holder as out of order. This is one of them. And I appreciate that it gets straight to the point, because how frustrating is it to mess around when you just want to be told that today, you’re wiping your wet hands on your pants.
Extra words like “out of order” can really only get in the way at this point.
3. Office hijinks
I appreciate the carrier pigeon comment. This office worker with a dry sense of humour knows how much his/her sign creations can be a ray of sunlight on a grey day.
I absolutely love to think of some shy, well-intended office worker creating this sign not realizing how close the “pen” and the “is” are together. I wonder if that’s how it went, or if it was an ex frat boy who gets his kicks trying to make his co-workers laugh.
5. This freezer is lit
I mean, maybe they’re saying that this freezer is the best freezer ever. In fact, for funny out of order signs it seems the store should stock beer in here rather than whatever it is they have in there right now.
6. Witty banter through out of order signs
People can get satisfaction in so many ways. The person who wrote “the licorice doesn’t work?” probably thought they got in the last word.
But oh no. The creator of the sign even went so far as to call that person a “smart ass”. Communication is key.
7. Sometimes you just gotta try
I wonder how many times people have simply removed the sign hoping that it’s inaccurate and that the phone will work. Probably many, many times. Enough times for them to add the footnote that removing the sign won’t make the phone work.
8. Such a positive reframe
Rather than focusing on the fact that this escalator doesn’t work, they’ve pointed out that we should be grateful that the stairs still do. What a positive vibe to bring to an escalator. Funny out of order signs prevail
8. So I guess I’ll have…
Personally, I like the simplicity of this. With only one option, you don’t have the stress of making a decision. Also, points for the lack of consistency across all the out of order signs.
9. They’ve covered all their bases
After reading the entirety of this sign, there’s absolutely no reason to go to reception and explore the issue. Which is probably a relief to reception and the exact reason they created this highly detail-oriented sign.
10. Nom nom nom
As far as funny out of order signs, this is the most kid-friendly I’ve seen.
11. The addendum
Some people will really do anything they can to express their frustrations with the ol’ ex.
12. Keep it simple
13. Please do not have an emergency
I always wonder… are signs like this made with sincerity or jest?
14. Honest if anything
So many people have no idea what they’re doing. At least the elevator repair person who made this funny out of order sign can admit it.
15. So on-brand
This place offers tourists a dark tour through London’s past. In this case, they’ve carried their brand through their out of order sign and it’s pretty hilarious. Always appreciate the “we apologize for any inconvenience caused” close.
