Sign for tomorrow: Do Your Business Here

Tomorrow a landscaping company will deliver, via dumptruck, 2 cu yds of gravel into a corner at my house. I won’t be there, but it won’t be a problem since I told the company I would have a sign where I wanted the delivery. (I’ll move all the driftwood & blocks out of there…)

I made the design in the GFUI, and duplicated it so I could move things around for the cutting operations (text from the painted cardboard). I took the whiteboard and lightly scored outlines for placement. Then I painted & cut the letters & cat & deposit. I used hot glue to fix to the whiteboard. (it’s actually foam core board)

OK, I guess I shouldn’t have used a chewy.com box, but I put all their cardboard to reuse activities.

I stopped by the landscaping company on a whim (wasn’t planning to buy yet, just wanted the price). Price was right, so I placed my order. The cashier & I were discussing how to identify the location. We are both cat people, so she said, “just have a sign showing us where to poop.”

Et voila, a sign.

Are you sure the delivery people and sales person are the same? The delivery person may take the sign literally.

The delivery guy was hanging around, trying not to laugh.

That is absolutely brilliant! And you’re totally safe from actual poop incursions…when have you ever known a cat to do as it was told? :rofl:

I thought that was very polite of them. What do you want to bet the driver snapped a selfie with that delivery?

I did call the company this afternoon to thank them for the excellent service. The driver put the load exactly where I wanted it.
