The truth behind a disturbing sign in the parking lot of a supermarket in Sydney Woolworths has been revealed.
A photograph of the message is currently circulating on social media and attracts lots of comments from shocked Facebook users.
The note – which was not approved by the retail giant – was allegedly spotted “over a year ago” in the parking lot at Woolworths Neutral Bay, a confused suburb of the Lower North Shore in Sydney.
The sign reads: “Do not defecate in Woolworths Neutral Bay parking lot”.
It also contains a symbol showing a figure squatting and sending a stool with a large red cross through it, as well as the words “no pooping”.
It has been confirmed to 7NEWS.com.au that the sign was not approved by Woolworth’s staff and management.
Furthermore, Woolworths does not manage the parking lot where the sign was placed.
It appears to have been set up and placed in the parking lot by a concerned resident or shopper about 12 months ago and has recently started circulating on Facebook for unknown reasons.
Some Facebook users were alarmed to see the note in the parking lot of the Neutral Bay store.
“I lived there before, I had never realized that people in Neutral Bay were so inclined,” one said.
Added another: “I have a serious WTF moment.”
A third said, “I think the people sitting in parking lots are not reading signs or doing as the sign says.”
