A train station in the UK has put up signs banning kissing.
The goal is to stop departing passengers from pulling up in their cars at a crowded drop-off point and pausing to kiss each other farewell.
Virgin Rail says it installed the sign while refurbishing the station after a local business networking group said the place had to become more efficient.
But profit margins may have been a factor, too.
Virgin Rail says that if passengers want to share an embrace before they part company, they should pay to park their cars nearby where they can kiss all they want.
Kisses, $5 an hour.
I can't believe that a goodbye hug or kiss takes that much time.
