Every morning, large letters spelling out the store’s previous function are clearly visible to passers by in Reigate, Surrey.

Clare Ross, who owns Willows flower shop with her mum, Shirley, said: “We have done everything we can to get rid of it but it just won’t go.

“Every day it’s back. I knew this place had been a sex shop but it was completely empty when we took it over. There were no signs of its past at all.

“Then suddenly these huge letters appeared in the morning condensation saying licensed sex shop above our Interflora sign.” She sponged it away every morning only for it to come back the next day.

Some people might say that a flower shop IS a sex shop, just in a little more round-about way! wink

LOL

Guess the stuff they painted the sign on with takes more than a bit of elbow grease to completely remove…

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you’re a mile away and you have their shoes.

When life hands you lemons make apple juice. Then laugh while life tries to figure out how you did it.

What are flowers, but the sex organs of plants?

Heh. Amazing what a change in surface texture will do for condensation.

If memory serves, plate glass actually has a small amount of zinc on one side, due to the way it’s made: sheets are actually floated atop a bed of molten metal. Not sure if removing the lettering removed the zinc, or the lettering kept the elements from wearing it away, but rither way, you wind up with ghost letters.

1: Extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof. If it does what it says, you should have no problem with this.
2: What proof will you accept that you are wrong? You ask us to change our mind, but we cannot change yours?
3: It is not our responsibility to disprove your claims, but rather your responsibility to prove them.
4. Personal testamonials are not proof.

What part of ‘meow’ don’t you understand?
