Broken: Sign to restroom

Mark Hall writes:

I was recently in Zermatt, Switzerland where, after hiking for two hours to the top of the Gorner-grat bahn, I was in need of "the facilities." This is a picture of the sign that is supposed to direct you to them. Maybe it was the altitude, but my first impression was to walk around in a circle (or more exactly a rectangle) and the hope the toilet would magically appear.

In fact, the sign actually indicated that the entrance to the toilets was around the corner (just one corner mind you, not the three depicted). I guess I'm just used to the one-arrow-at-a-time approach to signage.


Mark... all Swiss intructions must be given in triplicate... simple really

I think it means go down then 1/2 way up!

This is NOT a fake, it is completely real. I've been to Zermatt and I got a chuckle out of this sign when I saw it for the first time.
