“Please forgive me Mel”

Says the signs on the way to work.

Has anyone else noticed the signs on the drive from Lanyon to the City?

They start off saying “Please forgive me Mel” near the roundabout just past Lanyon shops, then another two a bit further down toward tuggeranong saying, “I love you Mel” and two more on the overpass near the RSPCA on the Tuggeranong parkway.

What do you think guys, should Mel forgive the creator of these signs?

I think she should…

My partner and I have had a torrid amount of stress and finally last week that stress got to us. Melissa called it off just when we could see the finishing line from the stress.

I will give anything, do anything and help anyone if they can assist me win back Melissa. I finally found true love and I would do absolutely anything for this amazing women.

I want to show this wonderful lady just how much I love her. Melissa has had a tough time recently and on one occasion I should have been more sensitive. I just want her to be happy and know how great she really is.

If you can assist or know of people who could assist then please call Glenn on **** *** *** [Number supressed].

Mel’s got a $1,000 bounty on her head now?

It’s actually not AVO, its called DVO’s these days. Domestic Violence Order.

Unless I am wrong.

Jessieduck, who are we kidding? We all know Boatshed’s a cad. But Mel’s display of putting him in the doghouse is all show. We know she’ll forgive him. She’s too weak.

Don’t do it Mel!!

Hilarious – I noticed these over the last few days and considered posting asking the same question. They definitely say stalker to me.

I’m pretty sure one of the signs says “Melissa”.

Mel needs an AVO.

Almost out of here, but first, in a packed program this morning, the news…

AVO? Australian Valuation Office? Has Mel’s partner been diddling their land tax? That would explain a lot.

Are you guys all assuming Mel is a female? Maybe ‘Melvin” should forgive HER….

Kudos for the lateral thinking there, Swaggie.

So to continue my earlier analogy, maybe Mel’s partner is the ink pot that’s had the company quill dipped into…. this is all getting a bit too Two Ronnies for me.

So it’s goodnight from me, and it’s goodnight from me.

Good night.

Wow… He must have done something really bad…

I have noticed these signs the last couple of days… but only until this morning I saw the one on the tuggeranong parkway.

The first one actually seems to be in Conder, exiting Pockett Ave. It says something like ” I am sorry Mel, Boatshed”, then the other ones say things like, Give me 1 more chance Mel, Please forgive me Mel, and I love you Mel.

Someone is definitely in the dog house.

Thumper 9:07 am 24 Sep 08

Yep, I’m thinking someone forgot to put the bins out, or put the seat down on the toilet.

When in doubt in matters of the heart it always pays to listen to James.

Mel needs an AVO.

bubzie 8:46 am 24 Sep 08

Nah..could get more interesting!! 🙂

I’ve only noticed the ones near tuggeranong/lanyon myself..i never knew they were also on the parkway!

Overheard 8:45 am 24 Sep 08

I suspect not. Maybe the author has been dipping his quill in the company ink and is only now contrite that Mel’s tumbled his game.

Cad. Bounder.

Either that or he forgot to put the bins out for the third straight week.
