You will remember, of course, that this was some excellent advice from Kev, who is an IT magician and retailer of high-quality wireless abbabs.
I have, therefore, put up signs enforcing this rule at work.
I was just going to take pictures of my new signage and then take it down, but when I actually put it up, I decided I liked it, so it’s now going to stay there permanently. It’s a good rule. Safety first.

This has everything I look for in a sign: words, fruit, colours and a bit of sass. This is an unmitigated triumph as far as I’m concerned.
I approve of this whole heartedly, and intend to do the same to our server room at work… once I’m allowed to go near it!
Has anyone commented on it yet? Or have the all assumed it is some new rule relating to ‘some guy who isn’t on their shift’?
I haven’t actually been in work since I did it, so I don’t know. I’m going to check it’s still there next time I’m in. And if it’s not I’m going to put a new one up.
There’ll be some squares who don’t agree with it, they’ll be getting all hot ‘n’ heavy about how it isn’t “regulated” and “professional” like some other signs.
It’s gone, unfortunately. I do still intend to replace it, but not today, because today I can’t really be bothered. But another day, I definitely will.
That’s a Chris Guarantee™.
Keep putting it up. Every single time they take it down put it right back up again. It’s the only way.
Yes. But not immediately. Every single time they take it down, I’ll put it right back up, but later on, when I can be bothered.
If you want to ‘Looney Tunes’ the hell out of this, print several and put them on top of each other. That way each time the offence tries to pull it down (wa-hey) they’ll have another one right underneath. Brilliant.
Brilliant! Wile E. Coyote the shit out of it.
I’ll also paint a fake tunnel on the wall of the server room with mangoes at the far end.
