Sign mistake

Postby Dan_ad_nauseam » Sat 02 Jun 2012 10:55 pm

Seen at a restaurant in Portland, Oregon:

"Please buss your table."

I didn't ask if the health inspectors required a more through disinfecting as a result.

"Buss" is kiss.

"Bus" would mean to clear the used dishes from the table.

Thank you.
I like the idea of everybody kissing the table. :lol: Disinfecting? Most definitely. Lots of germs would be spread that way! :P
