Translating Signs #1

This is the first of a serie of posts dedicated to decifer and decode some sings that we can normally find in public spaces, so let’s get to it

 This is a sign that I found some days ago in a park I cross almost every day on my way to work, in it we can read:

“Escoja construir en vez de destruir”

“Escoja cooperar en vez de ser indiferente”

“Recoja lo que hace su perrito”

This is a really funny sign, because it starts mentioning really philosophical quotes and ends up saying something we didn’t expect. so let’s break it apart.

“Escoja construir en vez de destruir” means: “Choose to build instead of destroying”

“Escoja cooperar en vez de ser indiferente” means: “Choose to cooperate instead of being indifferent”

“Recoja lo que hace su perrito” means: “Pick up what your little dog does”

That last sentence is the funny part of the sign, because it refers to the dog’s poop as the “what your little dog does”.

I hope you liked this post and you could learn something from it.

Thanks.
