    2. Beware of slippery floor.
    3. Please queue up for the next available service counter.
    4. Smoking is prohibited in all areas at this centre. Please proceed to G/F taxi station opening area if deemed necessary.
    5. Application forms are available for collection in rotary sack.
    6. Please submit the application form to Drop-in Box No. 1.

    Hi there,
    Thanks a lot.
    Since 'Beware of slippery floor' is posted on the wall. I would say:
    Mind the slippery floor. Am I right?

    For this announcement 'Please queue up for the next available service counter.' I think it means there are at least two counters and people will wait in line, so if one is busy, people can go to another counter. I don't know how to change it to mean that. Or just simply 'Please line up here for a service counter.'??

    For the last one: 'Smoking is prohibited in toilet cubicals.' This is posted on the wall in the toilet.

    tks
