Old school warning sign
Posted August 3, 2012on:
It is Friday and it is time for something light.
Earlier this week, I experienced my first MRI scan. It was nothing serious. A doctor just wanted a better look into my right leg that I have injured several times over the years.
I had to take all metal objects off my body for the procedure. When I changed into my hospital gown, I noticed the following warnings on a sign in the changing room.
But I had to wonder just how old the sign was. How many of us still carry floppy disks or consider a beeper (pager) a precision electronic instrument?
I was also wondering why anyone would want to bring mops, vacuum cleaners, and wagons to their MRI appointment.
I thought to myself: What an old school warning sign! Then I began to wish that there were warning signs for old school mindsets and practices.
I think I just found a pet project…
