    Hi there,
    I saw these announcements at a learning centre. Some of them wrong. Could you help to proofread them?

    1. Beware of dropping tiny objects into urinal bowls to avoid blockage.
    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.
    7. toilet cubical.

    Re: proofread

    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
    simon
