    Wonderful notes. As a related point of interest, a friend of mine and I once decided that it would take passive-aggressive to a whole new level if we were to post a response note to a complaint note that we never actually received.

    “Do not microwave four coworkers”?
    I have read about people flipping out and shooting their co-workers, but microwaving them? And I know there isn’t really anything in the picture to show the size of that microwave oven, but I guess I would be hard pressed to fit even one of my co-workers in there…

    lmfao. i can totally see that happening at my work. The manager took Polaroid pictures of the pen/paper-bookmark cups detailing the proper stocking technique not too long ago. It made everyone laugh.

    Smelly foods getting warmed up at work is the absolute worst… I used to work at a rehab center where one coworker would take fish atleast once a week, after heating it up the hallway was awful!!! (not to mention this persons other habits…. she could really have been recipient of several of these notes!)
