Our anonymous submitter says this display is just one of many microwave missives his coworker has created. “Someone tore it down and threw it on the floor once,” he says, “but she put it back up, laminated with heavy-duty tape.”

WHOEVER HAD THE GENIUS IDEA TO BLOW UP PAPER, OR WHATEVER YOU USED, IN THE MICROWAVE AND DIDN'T CLEAN IT UP, KUDOS TO YOU AND YOUR SLOPPY BEHAVIOR. I'M ASSUMING YOU LIVE EXACTLY LIKE A PIG.

WEBSTER'S DEFINITION OF CLEAN: 1. Free from dirt; unsoiled; unstained 2. Free from foreign or extraneous matter 3. Habitually free of dirt WEBSTER'S DEFINITION OF CLEANLINESS: Neat, immaculate, clean, clear, pure refer to freedom from soiling, flaw, stain or mixture

And of course, the art-imitating-life inspiration for this post: Pam Beesly.

To whoever made the microwave mess: The microwave is a SHARED kitchen appliance.  By not cleaning it up, you are basically telling whoever follows that their time is less valuable, as they will have to scrub out your disgusting splatter. Sincerely, Disappointed

      Agreed, but to accuse them of “living exactly like a pig” is going a bit far. That would take a whole new level of commitment, and i doubt that some passive aggressive microwave explodage in response to excessive “sinage” equates.

      I thought ‘sinage’ was some complex mathematical equation for cleanliness that I failed to learn in algebra.

      Mmmmm… Sinage. I want to work here.

      Many people don’t realize that sinage roots from the word sin, as in “to do evil.” Even those that do, don’t realize that it does not relate directly to the act of committing a sin, but to the elaborate process of developing new sins. Clearly this is the Devil’s workplace where many hours are spent in collaborative sessions finding new ways for bad people to have fun.

      I’d be really good at that.

      I wonder where these people work. Apart from the field I work in (Advertising/Marketing) I’ve never even heard other people use the word signage. At least we spell it right.

      I’m just saying that if they don’t work in marketing or advertising than using the word signage is a lot like hearing white trash using the word equity. You just have to question the necessity.

    Dear Coworker,

    Can you teach me how to make paper blow up? And can I borrow your dictionary, I want to look up sinage.

    Thanks

    I wonder if this guy was the one using the microwave…

    (its about 5 minutes in, but a very interesting watch either way)

    (and if that’s the case, its NOT PAPER – that’s the whole point you idiot signage maker!)

    Dear slut bag,

    Look closer at the microwave mess. Yup, that was your cat, fluffy, and he was fucking delicious.

    Keep it up and your first born is next.

      Yeah, I “secant” that too. Only now I’ve got a hairball stuck in my throat that I want to have a few words with you about. Also, may we kindly remind you to please spay/neuter your pets, you irresponsible bitch.

      But really, Fluffy’s balls were fucking delicious too.

    The total failure to recognize that more notes will not help, but will instead only tick people off enough that they leave a mess on purpose, is what really elevates this PAN to brilliance.

    I just keep wondering whether the use of “kudos” is sarcastic, or whether the writer doesn’t actually know what it means. I’m leaning towards the latter.

      I don’t hate it, but don’t watch it either. IMO, it’s overrated. A feeble attempt to sound like the British Office. We tried a few episodes, but never really got into it.

      Loved the British one, the U.S. one not so much. It’s not a particularly annoying show, but it always annoys me when a big deal gets made over something I can’t see the appeal of.

      I like both, though I did see the British one first and still have a crush on Tim. Gareth made my skin crawl (so he was a great character). But the British one made me squirm as much as the American one, and there are times when I would have switched off either one. Watching it (either one) is a good way to pass half an hour.

      Okey doke then.

      I’ve only seen the American version. It was way too over the top and seemed like they were trying way too hard for something that’s supposed to be subtle. But then again, I’m a fan of British sitcoms.

    In the days before the internet I once had a roommate who once went out until the wee hours of the morning and then left signs up everywhere saying we had to be quiet due to the roommate’s late night and the fact this person was a light sleeper.

    The tone of this microwave note reminds me so much of the tone of the ‘be quiet’ notes. So self-righteous, so condescending and so bitchy. Like their notes were to be obeyed without question. Not knowing the notes would be relevant 15 years later I never took a picture of them, alas.

    The other roommate and I laughed at the signs and ignored them, and wrote a P-A note back and stuck it on the sleeping roommate’s door. It read, “Buy earplugs.”

    We can’t see the clip as Hulu/NBC won’t allow viewers outside of the US. Could you post clips on a host that will allow other countries to view… i.e. youtube… pan does have a worldwide fanbase after all. Cheers.

    I think the best solution to this problem is to clean the microwave before using it and then re-creating the mess once you’re done so that someone else will have to clean that up.

    That way if everyone else still insists on not cleaning the microwave you end up being the only person using it.
