    Pizza Takeaway Makign me pay for a damaged sign 9th Oct 16 at 8:15 PM
    Basically last night went to papa johns for a pizza

    while waitiing a accidently lent against 1 of those stupid signs which are on laminated board on a metal a frame. thought nothing of it until the guy came over to me saying i would after to pay for the damage, basically he got the police and they more aless sided against him, the incident was on CCTV and only evidence ive got is a picture showing the broken plastic bracket

    basically i dont feel the sign was on the wall properly and was potentially a health and safety hazard as its not as if i vandlizaed it just leant against it.

    if they make me pay do you think i should take this to court as they have mentioned figures of around £200-£500 to fix it.

    What if there was photos hanging on the wall, should they also be sturdy enough to be leant on?

    Without the OP coming back to clarify, I can only think its like a sign in the picture below.

    Still ok in your opinion to lean on?

    It's a wind up. If it's not I'll pay for the damage myself.

    I don't either but places like pizza establishments must have sturdy signs to protect the members of the public who like to lean, or in this case lean accidentally.

    Of course that sign should be OK to lean on. It's bolted to the wall in four places. I wouldn't put my whole bodyweight on it, but resting my back against it while standing in a queue should be perfectly fine. Unless it's been very badly fixed, but a reasonable person would expect a fast food chain to affix large acrylic signs properly.
