Do Not Disturb !!!
« on: May 03, 2017, 06:06:23 AM »
Has anyone got any good signs I could print out, to accentuate the fact that disturbing the engineer whilst busy is a bad idea.

Something along the lines of throwing stones at a grizzly bear, etc etc

I've already said if they pay my hourly rate I will be happy to sit around and be ball boy.

I don't expect the kids to get it, but the parents might....   This is for my workshop door when I am working.  As I am just seen to be in the garden regardless of what I am carrying or writing.

 :doh:

Just get doing and make swarf, you can decide what its going to be later.   :thumbup:

Looks like this is the most likely candidate, and if that doesn't work I will add Andrews less than subtle in blood below.

Just a bit  :offtopic: but

I heard of someone who had a sign on their front door as follows:

Energy salesmen will be shot!

Survivors will be shot again!!

Reminds me of the story about the bloke who had a confrontation with some sort of villain.  When he phoned the police, he was told 'no-one is available'.
After a short wait he phoned again and said 'he's got a gun!'.
Within minutes, six police cars and two motorcycles arrived and the helicopter was hovering overhead.
The Officer in charge was a bit cross and said 'You said he had a gun!' to which the householder replied, all innocent like, 'You said no-one was available'.

OK, I'll get me coat!  And don't tell me not to give up my day job - I'm retired!   :lol:   :lol:   :lol: 
Best regards,

Pete W.

Thanks for reminding me I need to find an affordable way of getting our robot arms working properly, so yours can shake visitors by the hand. That'll put 'em off.

I'd be quite happy if the arm could just show a card with a fork on it, then spin the card and show OFF on the other side.

Of even more subtle - someone coughing...

Now that is all funny and I understand the point, sometimes I am annooyed when I get disturbed at the middle of creative process.

But a bit more polite approach might be in order?

Is there a expressive pictogram for "do not disturb"?

I prefer " your lack of planning does not constitute an emergency on my part - . Unless bearing coffee and biscuits do not disturb!"
