English as a twelfth language

I was reading Reader's Digest October 2005 edition when i came across this article.

Hope this will beat the Monday Blues.

English is becoming the international language of business.  But you wouldn't know it by these signs, reportedly spotted around the globe.

A Bangkok dry cleaner asks its customers to:
"Drop your trousers here for best results."

A Norwegian cocktail lounge isn't asking for much:
"Ladies are requested not to have  children in the bar."

A laundry in Rome proves it knows la dolce vita:
"Ladies, leave your clothes here and spend the afternoon having a good time."

This beats them all.

In the window of a Barcelona travel agency that may not last long:

"Go Away".

Have a pleasant Monday.
