A funny text or grammar mistake on the signboards makes them look interesting.  Here are 12 such funniest out of order signs spotted by different people around the world. 
1.Dummy ATM Machine

2.Don't Steal the 'Out of Order' Phone Signs

Most places will put up an 'Out of Order' sign if a certain object is not working. Sadly, there's always that one wannabe comedian who thinks it's funny to remove the sign and let people discover that bit of info for themselves. This place decided to place two signs on the phone and give those people who steal signs a little warning.

3.Broken Escalator?

This place should invest in a writer. The note should read: The Escalator has temporarily been turned into stairs. The way this 'Out of Order' sign is written, you'd think a caveman penned it. It doesn't take a rocket Scientist to see that an escalator isn't working. Usually when an escalator isn't working, there's tape preventing customers from using it, or people can be seen walking up or down the immobile stairs.

4.Photocopier Sign On Glass

If an item in the office isn't working, it would be best to put the note on the actual item. The office 'winner' opted to put a sign saying, "The Photocopier Out of Order" on a random glass window. The glass has nothing to do with the copier, but there it is hanging for only the people near it to see. The photocopier probably has a sign on it that says "See window for more details."

6.Elevator Out of Order For Years

The residents in this building all must have muscular legs. The elevator has been a work in progress for well over 20-years.

7.Find A Phone to Call About Out of Order Phone

This 'Out of Order' sign is an oxymoron. A courtesy phone is supposed to be up and running to help those who are in need. It's mind-boggling that a sign on a phone would tell someone to call from another phone for assistance. If they didn't need the phone, then they wouldn't go looking for it.

10.Use Sink instead of Toilet

If this is how hospitals operate, I'd rather be treated in a back alley. The sign tells visitors that the toilet is broken so they should use the sink.
