Galley bathroom reminder

This beautifully handcrafted sign hangs as a reminder (and maybe a warning?) on the door of the toilet that is located right next to the galley at Palmer Station, Antarctica:

No number 2!

Apparently, it’s not a plumbing problem – it’s the proximity.

About steffi suhr

Once upon a time, I was an enthusiastic and hopeful biological oceanographer who did a bunch of work in the Antarctic. I was alternately wearing labcoats or extreme weather clothing and hard hats, but have long since swapped survival suits for dress suits and do science management, currently as the BioMedBridges project manager at the European Bioinformatics Institute. I still like to use my brain. I'm a German serial expat, currently - again - living in the UK.

    However, the needlepoint sign is undeniably stylish.
