Translation #FAIL or a mischief?

After a hot and long blog discussion since the last days, here’s a much more relaxing (and funny?) blog post. The image below was submitted by one of my colleagues who shot this at a hypermarket in Mauritius.

For the group of people who did not notice anything strange : The hypermarket opens at 9am for those understanding French while it opens at 6am for those speaking english.

Update :
Our friends “S” and “Eddy Young” have found another glitch in the shot. In english, the hypermarket closes on Thursdays, while in english, it closes down on fridays lol!

What do you think?
