well it's come to this

Don't panic friends in the south! This sign posted on my door does not mean alcohol free zone! No, no no!
Since I have moved to my tree house apartment, the door has been rattled at any hour for the call of the bottle. Seems the previous tenants were bootleggers. Now in a dry town, there will be good money to be made bootlegging and many people seem to have the entrepreneurial spirit. Unfortunately when you take over tenancy in a former bootleggers homestead you run the risk of or depending on your own entrepreneurial spirit, the option of having a ready made business.

Having turned many a potential customer away I have decided to save everyone the trouble and post a sign. The best part is; I had asked a co-worker to help me translate so that all comers would be able to understand. I had in mind a French, English, Inuktitut sign. Taadaaa! This is her translation. Now why didn't I think of that?

Gee, you could start up your own AA chapter!

I feel your pain. I once had a phone number that was 1 digit off from a prostitutes. I'd get these awkward sounding men calling at all hours who didn't know who they were or who they were looking for!

That would be worse! I'm glad to say the sign stayed and the door didn't rattle last night. Did you change your number?

I also has a number close to a booze delivery company ... stoners calling up with the munchies asking for Whoppers and Fries ... I always took the order (haha) and hung up! Kelley

I guess some things are universal.
