A customer has revealed they quickly lost their appetite after seeing a sign revealing why the sandwich shop they were visiting was closed for a break.

Sometimes, especially when visiting smaller stores or food vendors, you may come across a sign on the door explaining that it's shut while whoever's working has their break.

And usually these signs are pretty run-of-the-mill, meaning the customer will either wait it out or come back later.

However, one Reddit user was left gobsmacked when they headed out to get some food and were confronted with a very X-rated sign explaining why the shop was shut.

The user, who goes by Barisidious_White on Reddit, shared a photo of the sign they'd seen, which suddenly made them rethink the hotdog they were planning to get.

They revealed that it read: "Closed for sex. Be back in 30 mins. Thank you."

The poster added: "I seemed to have lost my appetite for a good ol' fashion ballpark wiener."


Now, it goes without saying that such a candid sign would lead to a lot of questions, mostly about the logistics of what they claimed was happening.

People took to the comments to write: "'back in 30mins' That's a bit optimistic. Must be a 10min drive home."

Others added: "Weird flex but I respect it", "It’d be great if it said back in 5", and: "Fair reason. Can’t even be angry."

Another commented: "i'm hoping it's a bad joke but...", while someone else wrote: "Why would you write that …..just why …"

Let's just hope - if the sign is real - that they actually left the store and didn't decide to get down near any food preparation areas...

But getting frisky at work apparently isn't as unusual as you'd think (hope) it would be.

According to a recent report, a surprising number of employees in the US are having sex on the job - presumably without leaving a sign telling the world what they're up to.

As reported by the New York Post, a September 2023 report found that a quarter of employees who (thankfully) work remotely, have had sex during their working hours.

They are also reportedly putting emojis such as the “fire,” “smoke,” “sandwich” and “headphones” in their work statuses while going off to get down between the sheets.

Researchers from CalendarLabs, a digital calendar hub, told the outlet: "As remote work has become the norm for many workers, our findings show that many couples are taking advantage of the coziness of their own homes to improve their intimate relationships.

"Having these intimate moments during work hours could elevate anticipation and excitement [for partners]."

They added: "Using different emojis to note they are away from their desk seems to be an easy way for remote workers to get intimate during the workday, without co-workers or managers wondering if they’re working."
