The problems of reflexive verbs, as seen in Macedonia

This past weekend, a friend and I took a trip to Skopje, Macedonia for a whirlwind weekend trip. We left on Friday evening and by the time our final flight arrived in Skopje, we were both tired and a bit out of it after our full work day.

When I saw the sign below, I had to read it several times. I kept thinking that I was tired so I wasn't reading it correctly. I finally realized that the sign was wrong and had a fit of giggles. It highlights how difficult reflexive verbs and pronouns can be to get right!
