The ever popular no parking sign is something I have gotten used to here in Sao Paulo. Instead of a big P you’ve got the big E. However, on my walk the other day I happened on a very unusual sign. I found it all the funnier, as I had been noticing all of these handwritten signs people had posted in front of their homes about not leaving dog poo and if they could kindly pick up their own waste (an issue here in Brazil). Anyway, without further adeu:
A few things pop into my mind.
- If I am the type of person to have a car that shouldn’t park there, would I be the type of person to relieve myself in your parking space as well?
- If am the type of person to relieve myself in your parking space, do I really care that you put up a sign?
