My favourite is "This door is alarmed". Always makes me want to write underneath "So what? Mine is terrified."

Seen on the back of a VERY dirty van:
"I wish my wife was this dirty!"

One that really drags my brain into a haystack is 'Thank you for not smoking'

When you've only just got on the bus how can they thank you for not smoking when you haven't not smoked yet?
If like me you don't smoke anyway how can they thank you for not doing something that you don't do anyway before you've not done it because you don't?

No - it's because the buses go so fast you can't take aim quickly enough :P

Hand on heart, I have seen more than one with 'She is'

Incidentally, I always think that the ones, saying "If you cannot see my mirrors I cannot see you" should also say, "and if you can see them, I am not looking."

I remember the no spitting ones- on trams it was "No Spitting- Penalty Forty Shillings", on busses it was "No Spitting- Penalty Five Pounds". Obviously the trams were for the workers, busses for the nobs.
