Grimace and the fry kids

April 23rd, 2008 · 124 comments

The school in Los Angeles where Anna works is under renovation, so a lot of the kids cut through the library on their way to and from the cafeteria. Recently, one of these fine young scholars spilled an entire basket of fries…and kept walking. One of Anna’s coworkers picked them up, but he missed one. another coworker posted this note.

Please note the offending French fry on the carpet in the library. Situations like this, people, are why we make you go around the library when you have food or drink.

The amazing thing, Anna says, is that the sign actually worked. “The student came in, took responsibility and even apologized.” Happy meals all around!

    Never mind the french fry, those shoes are massively offensive.

    Did the photographer go “Ok, now stand over there, I want to get a picture of you with the fry… now, smile!!”

    Did they want the foot there for perspective so that the kids would know this was on the floor and not the ceiling?

    So many questions, so little fries!

      The foot is in frame to offer perspective to the size of the offending fry. With out the foot, the amount of offense is seriously diminished. I also think that the foot/shoe/leg/pant-short/capri is there to add to the offending of the senses, where the fry only offends the librarian.

    Ladies and gentlemen of the jury I submit to you that this crime could not have been perpetrated by a student as both the submitter and the note poster insinuate, but rather an adult and most likely a female adult. Everybody knows that any kid and 99% of all men would have invoked the 5 second rule and salvaged every last one of those fries.

    In fact, I think we all know somebody who would have eaten those fries well outside of the 5 second window. This is a set up.

      I dunno, I don’t think the five-second rule applies in a school. All those dirty little hooligans (I’m assuming this is high school or middle school) running around and whatnot just filth up the floor. Besides, in a public place, you never know if that fry landed on a spot where someone who stepped in dog poo just walked.

      Good point Claw. Unless the offender was say…a homosexual man as there is no way a gay man would eat a floor hitting fry. This I know from my own H.S. days…although it was quite a long time ago. And it wasn’t until the 20 year reunion when he showed up with his life partner that it all became clearER.

      To secondsout’s question: snatching that fry up would have required bending all the way over or squatting down which in turn would have required standing back up. Either method would have been challenging at best for thick-ankled, hobby-paint shoes man. Why go to all that trouble for one fry when you can head back to the canteen for a whole new batch at arm level?

      Having the “French” capitalized is grammatically correct. In fact, the entire note – “people” included – is grammatically correct. Even if it is a little nitpicky.

      I think TECHNICALLY the “French” shouldn’t be capitalized … I do believe that the “french” in French Fries is a reference to the VERB french and would relate to the preparation method used on the potatoes not the nation of France. To “french” a food is to cut it into strips. Can we talk about Ramekins again?

    • #19.9   Lorrie

      Yeah, it’s still capitalized because they are not “frenched” fries – that would be the verb usage. In the term “French fries” it modifies the noun “fries” and is therefore an adjective. As in “French dude” – “That French dude sure smells funny.” Note: “freedom fries” are not capitalized. I believe cutting it into strips is “julienne” not “french”.

    The only thing this note is really missing, people, is a reference to being raised by wolves.

      Or Jesus. Even though he was born in a barn, he wouldn’t have left his fries on the floor.

      No, but he would have eaten them off the floor. Nasty bastard. And that’s accurate because his daddy never married his mommy.

      Jesus might have dropped the fries, though. When you have big holes through the middle of your hands, you tend to drop things. You should see that dude eat M&M’s.

    Came in and apologized? I bet it was more like a teacher saw the student and threatened him/her with a trip to the principle’s office if s/he didn’t. People who are piggish enough to dump food and the floor and leave it don’t have enough guilt over their messes to apologize.

    That being said, the sign is over the top. A simple “No food or drinks in the library.” would’ve sufficed. But then again, if everyone used their common sense, we wouldn’t have this lovely site, now would we?

      Well, as we all know, principles are like pheromones and tap into the brain’s more primal limbic system, allowing it to completely override any commands from the more evolved prefrontal cortex. Thus, the subject temporarily succumbs to PA-assery. Of course, this PA-assery can become a permanent state if continuously exposed to principles.

    I bet this is a Catholic school. They are the only kids who would have enough guilt to come in, confess and repent for their sinful french fry transgressions.

    hmmm, maybe the picture taker is really offended by the shoes,and used this as a passive aggressive way to tell the shoe owner. That is the only explaination, what a way to exploit a fry! The note should have had the shoe circled in red explaining the need for fashion police on school grounds. Then we would all be fascinated and guessing what that “thing” is on the floor next to the shoe.

    Speaking of America…”A horse with no name”

    On the first part of the journey
    it was a basket full of french fries
    There was ketchup and relish, and other things
    but they were out of onion rings

    And this guy, dressed like a clown
    His legs were fat and shoes were bright
    and his pants were way too loud

    You see I’ve been in the library to shorten my way
    It was good to be out of the rain
    The construction, it’s such a delay
    and there’s no hall pass if you get to class late

    When I saw him in his clashing plaid pants
    I jumped from the dread
    Spilled my fries near the plastic plants
    and I ran until my face turned red
    They posted a sign about the indiscretion of mine
    so I came back, this is what I said:

    Please note the completely random font on the passive-aggressive note. Situations like this, people, are why we should limit the number of fonts available on school computers.

    BTW, it’s Maiandra GD, just in case you’re filled with a burning desire to know.

      Wow, Maiandra GD font and a drop cap. I think we have an amateur passive aggressive graphic designer here.

      Although I find it hard to believe they couldn’t find clip art of an angry French fry holding a stop sign.

      This is one strategically placed french fry, it’s probably the offended party in this situation….

    I work in a high school library, and I spend a significant portion of my day trying to get people not to eat and drink in there. Then the kids argue with me, even though a) it is posted all over and b) it should be common sense not to eat and drink around books and computers. Then they sneak food again as soon as my back is turned. THEN the principal walks in and scolds me for not catching the kid with the food.
    Anyone who thinks this note is over the top or unnecessary has not worked at my workplace.

    That must be a REALY nice school to work at. If that was any of the schools I attended, even my current University, at least someone would have out “Nice pants” or “UR pants R offending me!!!!”

    Also, is anyone thinking back to the time they brought food in the library and spilt it? I swear the lone time I brought in apple juice, I ended up spilling it on a chair. So, I hid the chair, because it looked like I pissed on it. This was 4 years ago. Thank god this website wasn’t up. lol

    My law school library didn’t enforce the no food rule at all, and we all violated it because we lived there. The worst I ever did was share sushi in the computer lab. 4 friends of mine ordered Thai and actually had it delivered. Man, we sucked.
