If it says at the park gate 'All dogs must be kept on a lead' keep your dog on a lead

If it says in a public building 'please close the door' close the door behind you

If it says in a pub 'children must be supervised at all times' supervise your children

Signs are there for a reason eg in the examples above to

1. Allow people to use the park without strange dogs running up and annoying/frightening them

2. To ensure other people aren't sitting in a draught in the church/restaurant wherever

3. To make sure customers aren't being annoyed by kids tearing around or that kids aren't being put at risk by parents ignoring them while they enjoy a drink.

AIBU to think it's not rocket science and just do what the bloody sign asks?

If a road sign says 20, DO 20, not 40.

No parking . driveway in constant use.

switch mobile phones off in this place.

How about this one?

People don't read signs. Ask anyone in retail.

Why should I "obey" a sign, unless if a legal requirement? Sure if it's a polite request and seems reasonable, but we aren't obliged to "obey".
