To be fair, the English in these signs is far better than my command of another language will ever be. Most of the time, the meaning still comes across and they also make you smile. :)

This one could even be an insight into the Country's sense of humour:

"In a Surat hotel lobby:
The lift is being fixed for the next day. During that time we regret that you will be unbearable."

Unlikely, I know, but I'd love to think the staff were getting their own back for the inevitable complaints before they even started. :P

Of course, if a sign could make the difference between life and death - a sign saying "Shark Infested Water!" for example - that's when you look into professional translation companies. But otherwise, there's no reason why a sign shouldn't give you a giggle.
