R.E.S.P.E.C.T., Swiss Style
Respect for the organist in the organ loft, and respect for the sharing the road -- both signs are from Lutry, Switzerland and give a knowing glimpse into Swiss culture.
Bicycles, motor scooters, and cars are everywhere, so the "mutual respect" traffic sign is a good reminder to be diligent and patient while on the roads.
The sign in the organ loft, this one written in French, is polite and to the point. Even the "Merci!" in little lettering at the bottom has a pleasant wisp of kindness that goes with the reminder to be understanding of those who work on the keyboard.
Both signs add up to R.E.S.P.E.C.T., Swiss Style.
Aretha Franklin would approve.
