Really? No other pithy wit other than claiming your numerical order and therefore your IQ?

Or stealing other people’s handle?
Dec 18, 2008 at 2:57 pm rating: 6
mind you, you could register your handle, and then no one could steal it.

Dude, this is PAN, not 4chan.
Thank god it’s not 4chan… *shudder*

Oh, I get it now. I had to look it up. I just never knew there were guys so intimidated by real women that they jerked off to cartoons!
“Possibly the strangest sub-culture in all of geekdom. Furries range from being harmless fans fascinated by anthropomorphic characters and animals, to immensely withdrawn or self-absorbed persons who actually believe, or want to believe, they’re eagle-winged fox-like versions of themselves with giant genitalia who wouldn’t dare be anything else that could be considered mundane.”

People will jerk off to anything. You should check out the smutty fanfiction people write. Most of it’s crap written by teenage children who’ve probably never had sex featuring their favorite TV, book, or anime characters fucking (who, of course, would never actually fuck in the canon of their fictional universe) that’s so horribly written you want to tear your eyeballs out. Although well-written stuff is pretty fucking hilarious too. It’s like a combination of a car wreck, a grade-b horror movie, and a Harlequin romance novel; it’s utterly horrifying and confusing, but also so utterly hilarious and ridiculous that you can’t tear your eyeballs away.
And before you say anything (which I know somebody will), I don’t jerk off to that stuff. I save that for real-people porn.

WTF kind of laundromat doesn’t have change machines? hint to owners … a shitty laundromat attracts shitty customers.
Dec 18, 2008 at 1:57 pm rating: 58
Since when is it not okay for the customer to spit on employees? I’m not playing anymore if that’s the new rule.
Dec 18, 2008 at 1:57 pm rating: 29
Actually I think you have to pay extra for that.
Dec 18, 2008 at 2:41 pm rating: 18
I have a whole roll of quarters ready if that’s what it takes to get Frankie to spit on me.

It seems odd that hippies would get so upset about doing laundry. Aren’t they busy saving the world from Republicans or something?
Dec 18, 2008 at 2:00 pm rating: 0
Or maybe only SOME hippies are busy doing that, and the rest have forgotten their bongs at home.

Canadian post offices operate on exact change like buses.

I’m really most impressed by the subtle message sent by the stacks of “chill pills” on the sign.
Dec 18, 2008 at 2:07 pm rating: 6
OH! I thought those were pogs.
Dec 18, 2008 at 3:28 pm rating: 12
Yikes! And I thought Canadians were supposed to be the friendly ones. Just another example of the American way infiltrating foreign cultures…
Dec 18, 2008 at 2:08 pm rating: 2
More likely the opposite, the American way is waning from foreign countries, making way for the rude Canadian sons-of bitches and their snobbish French ways.

Is that stacks of coins in the clipart? At first I thought it was some kind of freaky bamboo stalks. What country has coins that thick? People will be trying to use Rolaids as slugs in the coin slots.
Dec 18, 2008 at 2:11 pm rating: 12
I had thick coins like that once. They came with my Fisher Price cash register.
Dec 18, 2008 at 2:15 pm rating: 29
Yay! Fisher Price coins! They were each drastically different-sized, and easy to find with your barefeet in the dark and didn’t work anymore in the cash register after your little sister chewed on them.
Dec 18, 2008 at 2:27 pm rating: 12
Do we have to pay extra for your little sister to chew on our bare feet? Or is that included…?
Dec 24, 2008 at 11:28 am rating: 1
We Canadians are friendly, just not so much to each other.
Dec 18, 2008 at 2:35 pm rating: 11
now why’d ya have to go saying that? fuck off, eh.
let’s keep our dirty laundry at the laundromat.
Dec 19, 2008 at 12:57 pm rating: 3
I heard that Canadiens really like to make out a lot though.

Miss Manners had fallen on hard times and has taken to peddling advice and cold change in laundromats.
Some say she is into money laundering.

is ucluelet the Inuit spelling of “you’re clueless”??
Dec 18, 2008 at 2:48 pm rating: 3
No, it’s the cleft lip pronunciation of “you’re clueless”***groan***

Members Only jackets are fair game though.

It’s subtle but “behavior” is spelled wrong, at least according to Canadian spelling. Change starts with “u”.

Must be close to the border… overrun by undocumented lumberjacks from Seattle. Wherever they go, their native spellings creep into the vernacular.

Bring your own change, eh?
Dec 18, 2008 at 3:06 pm rating: 5
Can we spit on the wholesalers who supply those tiny boxes of detergent?
You need 6 or 7 of those for a “Giant” machine.
Dec 18, 2008 at 3:23 pm rating: 4
Please. Spitting on someone isn’t rude. Jizzing on someone is rude. Especially if you don’t call the next day.

“… SOME customers have forgotten their manners at home.”
Does this mean that SOME customers have LEFT their manners at home, or does it mean that some customers live in the laundromat and seem to have forgotten their manners there?
Dec 18, 2008 at 3:51 pm rating: 6
Maybe they’re at home, forget their manners while they’re there, and then spit all the way from there to the laundromat?

I would have awarded extra points if they had begun each line with one of the letters from the vertical M-A-N-N-N-E-R-S, like thus:
May we bring to your
Attention the fact that providing change is
Not the responsibility of the Post Office?
No spitting on Retailers is
Ever allowed- remember, your change is your
Responsibility! Sorry, but
Some customers are ruining it for Everybody!

Spitting?! Customers are SPITTING?! IS spitting on people legal in Canada? Because it sure is hell illegal in the U.S. Sharon Osbourne said so.

I would like to remind my customers that it is not my responsibility to resuscitate you when I beat you into a bloody pulp for spitting on me. I would also like to inform my customers that I am not allowed to give mercy.

It has come to our attention that Management has forgotten its role at work and neglected to get quarters at the bank today.
As a result we will swear, raise our voices in protest and even spit, as we now have wet clothes and no way to feed the dryers.
If management knows what’s good for it, it will move its ass posthaste to the bank before we riot.

What the F@#$ kinda laundrymat doesn’t provide change and/or a change machine? Now I have been to some ghetto-ass laundrymats – at any given time, the change machine is broken because 7 or 8 unattended 4 year olds are shoving stuff off the floor into the dollar feeder – but the management didn’t actually expect you to be cheerful and accepting about it. They didn’t give a rat’s ass but they didn’t blink an eye when you had a hissy. I mean, really. And what is up with the whole Post Office thing? A post office as in the US Postal Service, except Canadian? Why is it located in a laundrymat? It’s suspiciously wierd. Like getting a sandwich from a place that also sells lottery tickets, hems pants, and will babysit your cat. Don’t eat that sandwich.
Dec 18, 2008 at 7:57 pm rating: 23
Places like that always have dolls for sale, too.

I’m guessing the Post Office is next door, and has complained to the laundromat owners about the volume of laundrydoers trudging in to ask for change.
Dec 19, 2008 at 10:18 am rating: 1
There are a few independent post offices which have broken out and have their own buildings, but for some reason, many post offices seem to be located in drug stores (WTF?) I have always found this weird. Ucluelet is a bodaciously small town. Maybe this is why the post office is located with the laundromat?

Ah yes, Canada Post and Sudafed, all in one place for your convenience.

When during my time at home do I encounter an asshole laundramat with no change for me to do business with and dick employees I cannot get change from for me to spit on? Because I might… though my washer is cool doesn’t give me shit about not having quarters.
Dec 18, 2008 at 10:42 pm rating: 0
I often find change available to me in the bottom of the washer. I don’t think management provided it, though.

Who knows, once Obama’s inaugurated there might be enough change for everybody. Even those crazy spitting Canadians in BC.
Dec 19, 2008 at 9:42 am rating: 13
Yes we can. Change is coming. Just not at this laundromat.
Dec 19, 2008 at 7:34 pm rating: 5
Come on, really? It’s 2008, if you read popular science ya kinda get the feeling flying cars are right around the corner and we still have yet to implement laundry mats with appliances which accept bills? Are the engineers too busy?
Sheeeit, those things should run off food stamps AND give cash back for the dime bag your about to buy from the guy outside on the corner… know your market!
Dec 19, 2008 at 12:46 pm rating: 3
Well, in Canada the smallest bill is a $5. Perhaps it’s a good thing that laundry is not yet $5 per load.
Dec 19, 2008 at 7:33 pm rating: 1
I suppose they were going to the post office for change to wash their clothes.. Oh well, at least these people wash their clothes! lolz

if they don’t want to give change, they should just move on to the cashless system like just about every laundromat in my area (there’s a little card you load money onto, and a machine with which one can do this for oneself).
Otherwise, Management should just break down and get a change machine and quit bitchin’.
