Monthly Theme Day: Big



I'd like to celebrate my return to town in a BIG way, by participating in City Daily Photo's Monthly Theme Day, which this month is: BIG. I found this BIG notice in my friend's BIG apartment building entryway. It uses BIG letters to address a BIG problem that they are having, even though as BIG people one would hope they wouldn't even have to talk about such things, or make such a BIG deal out of it...

It translates as:
FOLLOWING UNPLEASANT EPISODES IN THE PAST FEW DAYS WHICH HAVE CREATED PROBLEMS FOR MRS. DALIANI-POLI, THE CONDOMINIUM INHABITANTS ARE INVITED TO NO LONGER DROP VARIOUS FOOD RESIDUE (mandarin oranges, bread, sausages), WATER, CIGARETTE BUTTS AND OTHER THINGS, OFF OF THEIR BALCONIES. WE TRUST IN EVERYONE'S COLLABORATION SO AS TO AVOID POINTLESS AND UNPLEASANT ARGUMENTS.

Poor Mrs. Daliani-Poli. Who knows what happened to her?! I think she needs a BIG hug!

Hey, Saretta, great to see you back! I laughed at this although as you say, poor Mrs Daliani-Poli. Great post for today talking of something big, like an apartment block, yet so real and everyday life.

This could be easily here, very funny and a bit sad, as any such dispute...
A respectful big hug to Mrs Daliani-Poli and welcome back to Daily Photo!

This is a really good post! Nice one for theme day and a good return. Hope you enjoyed your break and are back feeling invigorated!

Welcome back. I don't suppose bringing Mrs. Daliani-Poli a basket of fruit, bread and sausages would help. This is a wonderfully creative post for today's theme.

That's a BIG sob story for Senora Dalinani-Poli! I think she needs a BIG kleenex! Happy theme day!

Welcome back, Saretta! You've started with lots of humour and that's really cool! :-)

Hilda said...

Sigh. You'd think signs like this wouldn't be necessary anywhere! :(

Welcome back, Saretta! I hope you had a great vacation and visit with your family!

I can see the attraction of just tossing an item over the balcony. Whatever it was must of done some damage. She does need a big hug.
