Puneri Signs

Pune is known for people who have a distinct flavor of customer service. Anywhere you go you come across interesting signs that either scold customers or warn them in stern language what they are liable for. Here is a good example of such a sign I came across in the Volvo bus service office. Its literal translation is as follows,
"Please do not come to the counter asking again and again when the bus will arrive. When the bus comes we will call you. Pune traffic causes delays. Please note it. And please keep quiet!" (it probably looses its punch when translated in English but reading it in Marathi, it is very rude and very much puneri! :))

Hey, it says Krupaya!
May sound rude to you but polite enough to local folks.
