managing expectations

I love this sign stuck up near the entrance to a National Trust place we went to on Saturday:
“If you’re expecting a dazzling display of winter pansies and tulips in the Parterre this spring, unfortunately you will be disappointed”.
we weren’t expecting such things, but i felt compelled to be a little disappointed anyway.
