A sign seen in the Corner Café in Annapolis, Maryland, hasn’t quite received the expected response after a photo of it was shared on the All Annapolis Facebook page, November 27.
The sign reads, “We do not have WiFi…talk to each other, pretend it’s 1995.”
The bid to get people communicating with other patrons instead prompted some sassy comments which took the sign’s meaning to another level.
“We don’t have language. Grunt to each other, pretend it’s 20000BC,” wrote Mark Baker on the post that had been shared over 700,000 times.
Jaymi Turra wrote, “Okay, I’ll whip out a newspaper and use that as a way to ignore people and show everyone that I don’t want to talk to them.”
While Ramon Salinas wrote, “In 1995 I don’t remember people putting up signs that said – We don’t have telephones here. Write a letter. Pretend it’s 1855.”
At least the cafe had good intentions.
