IT has become normal for every motorist or pedestrian to take a picture of the trending sign at Phumla’s garage in Warrenton.

The unusual sign, depicting a urinating man with a pair of scissors and two testicles underneath, has been erected on the garage’s lawn.

Everyone who sees the sign seems to be intrigued and loves it to the extent of posting silly comments and funny faces on Facebook. Some of the comments include this from Mbongwa Dube: “Alternatively, guys should wear diapers.”

A worker at the garage revealed that the management was sick and tired of people, mostly males, urinating day and night on the green grass that was also next to the public toilets.

The garage also has a restaurant inside and the stench of urine is sometimes unbearable, especially during summer.

She added that they tried to be understanding if someone did not have a R2 to use the toilet, but people continued to urinate on the grass.
