Only I read signs in elevators, but I got rewarded yesterday:
"When flashing, help is on the way."
Someone named help will be flashing? Cool!
This gem was next to the emergency light, which I imagine is the thing that will be flashing. The sign writer should have written this:
"When the light is flashing, help is on the way."
