  1. Many things wrong.
    1. Should be “Business Hours”, not “business hour”
    2. “Monday-Sunday” is problematic. Better to leave it out but “Sunday to Saturday” is better than the current line
    3. There’s two pieces of white tape on the door that should be removed.
    4. The door on the right has an error in the Vietnamese sign.
    original wording
    cần tuyển
    nhân viên phụ bếp
    nhân viên phục vụ
    which means (I’m not Vietnamese and don’t speak it):
    Help wanted
    Kitchen Assistant
    Greeting Staff
    but the last line, nhân viên phục vụ, should read “phuc yu”

    It is not a translation of the English Covid-19 warnings on the left.

    1. Further clarification

      Google translate is great! So we know the sign says “help wanted”, followed by “kitchen assistant staff”. The last line is trying to read “wait (as in waiter/waitress) staff” as “nhân viên” means staff. We all know that waitresses, like flight attendants, hate us so the last part really is a typo and should read what they think of us, which is “Phục Yụ”.

  2. The pole in the background is REALLY leaning. Not sure what the purpose of this pole is.
    The quality of the photo isn’t good enough to read the fine print on the signs on white paper, so can’t tell if what’s printed is correct.
