[nagdu] Please don't pet me, I'm working.

I tried one of these signs a long long time ago. They didn't stop people
petting or distracting the dog. In fact, people would actually read the sign
as they were petting. Some people love them, but in my experience, they were
a waste of time and didn't cut back the unsolicited attention a bit.

Does anyone use these signs on their guide dog? I recently encountered
a couple people who said that I should have a sign on my dog's harness
so that they and others know he is a working dog and will not pet or
interact with him.
I argued that the idiots who lack self control and common decency will
still pet my dog, regardless of some sign that most people won't
bother reading.
But is this something worth considering?
