On the train to England to do our Christmas shopping this afternoon (taking advantage of the exchange rate), we stopped at one of the intermediate stations – no more than a halt, really. There, on a lamppost, under the station name, there was a sign headlined ‘Public Telephone’ which said
‘For information about the location of the nearest public telephone, please consult the station information poster which is situated near by.’
I think this is a strong contender for the most useless sign of 2009, but I am prepared to be proved wrong.
