Rantings of a sub-editor

Watch out, bag

Filed under: bag searches,oops! — substuff @ 9:10 am

Every morning I walk past a pub that has a sign in the window saying:

Warning! Random bag searches are occurring.

And it always makes me snigger.



  1. Wonders whether this is a slightly non PC snigger!

  2. Well you can go to that strange place if you want! I was simply sniggering at the idea that at any moment a random search could attack my bag, when actually, the pub quite actively pays security guards to search the bags of suspicious-looking types. It should read: Warning! If you look like you have drugs or a knife in your fake Louis Vuitton, a weedy barman is going to tell that big guy in black to come give you a bit of a bullying.

    Use of the passive to dodge responsibility just looks silly.
