  2. You’ve been busy. But I think you used the wrong 4-letter word up there. Shouldn’t you have said “F**k. I always miss the best deals”?

  5. I’ve dealt with the Chinese in manufacturing situations. There is definitely a language barrier, but this one is hilarious.

    • I lived on the other side of the divide for 5 years in french-speaking Switzerland. It is, ummm, a challenge. My foibles were always worth a laugh. The waiters at our favorite pizza place are still chuckling over the American who asked to be seated, well, basically, in the backside of the restaurant. Which is a different place from the back side of the restaurant. My husband was mortified. Me, I just laughed.

    Thanks for catching up with me, Frank!

  10. I belly laughed the second I glanced at this picture. I’m sure somebody in the marketing department is now out of a job.

    That sign would scare me into buying whatever they’re selling. You don’t mess around when someone throws down the F bomb AND the lure of 20% off.

  11. Very effective marketing campaign…just what kind of market are we talking about? 😉

    • One that sells a lot of crap???? Looking at the picture, it looks very much like your basic department store — a Macy’s or similar store. I’ve never seen signs like that in my Macy’s, though.

    Have you any idea how gross a latte looks on a computer screen?

  15. How can you pass up a sale like that?

    • I am sure that if we all promise to go to such a sale there will be many more. Of course, that’s how I have often referred to “Black Friday” sales anyway. I didn’t have a sign, though.

    • ah, I left a fuckin’ typo there. I meant ‘needed’ not ‘need’. (hey this fuckin’ thing may catch on for me now! I fuckin’ like it! I don’t think I’ve ever sworn so much in a fuckin’ comment section before. It’s like a huge fuckin’ release!)

      ok, I’ll fuckin’ stop now…

      • Nope, it’s all shielded from their innocent little eyes. Although my son once came home from preK, spilled his matchbox cars on the floor and yelled out “Oh man! You f—–rs!” I completely blame his teacher for that one.

        • My son Jacob’s first word was “Shit,” a fact that he finds hilarious. He stood up, hit his head, grabbed it and said “SHIT.” He clearly knew what he was saying.

          I blame my husband. Or your son’s teacher. Either works for me!

  19. Thanks, but actually I forgot to thank my friend Rob who sent it to me. As someone who has lived overseas, I love the foibles associated with not quite getting it.

  20. Hi Elyse,
    That is hilarious.
    I had to laugh at the article in the Huffington Post, when the guy who runs the restaurant in New York stated that he may have help start the profanity into mainstream Japanese culture.
    I certainly had a good laugh, great find, loved the post. 🙂
