Be carefull, take care and other metro wishes.

Well, either the Greeks need to be exactly informed about the danger and foreigners need not, or the translator was just lazy.
The greek text inside the Athens metro trains reads "Mind the doors. They close inwards". The english text calls for being careful anyway (probably for doors, pickpockets, sneezing fellow passengers, stray animals, whatever).

This sign is totally for me! Translation or not, I crushed a finger on a train in France, not being familiar with public transportation. I even remember what finger it was almost three years later! There certainly wasn't a sign like this!
