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

I had one and I used it for a while because a friend made it for me, but
frankly, I don't think they do any good.  If people ignore the harness and
the fact that the dog is a working dog, they're either going to ignore the
sign or laugh and say, "Oh, how cute is that!" or some such thing.

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
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?
