The Tokyo Metro Manners poster is all wet this month.
With much derp, the Tokyo Metro seems to want us to “drop” our umbrellas during Japan’s rain season (rather than taking care that our umbrellas don’t drip on others).
The strange part of this Metro poster’s engrish mistake is that the Tokyo Metro has a complete staff of interpreters who work at the subway’s information desks. However, somehow all the people in the PR department who make the posters forgot to have someone check the poster’s English, sheesh.
