Ne pas se pencher au dehors

Today’s number (141) is from my train ticket that you can see on top of waste basket in the train compartment which in Slovenia is a regular place to lay off the ticket once it was stamped. Not in the basket but on top of it, I guess this is a precaution measure that you would not have to go through the garbage if the inspection shows up. Or it could be just another sign of barbarism of my fellow countrymen. Anyway, the title of the post is a sign on the window above the basket that was probably the first contact with French for most of the population of former Yugoslavia. I always wondered if it actually says “do not lean out of window” or if it actually reads like one of those funny hotel signs in English that circulate on the Web.

As for the PBs, I hate neck tags on T shirts: they usually scratch me so much that I wish I had cut them off as soon I geo back from the store. And then I eventually cut them off after the first or third time…
