Don’t blame us

July 28th, 2009 · 158 comments

Exhibit a) Spotted at a laundromat in Silver Lake by Jessica in Los Angeles…

Don't BLAME Us If there aren't any paper towels!!! We do our best to have a clean well run Laundromat for you to do your laundry. But, someone is: STEALING PAPER TOWELS. Taking a bunch of towels off the dispenser and taking them home. Can you believe it???? So, if there aren't towels when you need one, now you know why. Thank you.

Exhibit b) From Ronnie’s Diner, also in LA.., by Valerie:

No dogs on the patio. Thanks to the crazy lady that called the health department. Mean people suck.

Exhibit c) From Barnacle Bill’s in Sarasota, Florida:

We regret not being able to provide these products: MILLER LITE, HEINEKEN, AMSTEL LITE, COORS LITE, FOSTERS, SAM ADAMS due to extremely poor customer service by J.J. Taylor.

Exhibit d) From, as Miranda explains, ” the local ‘community thrift store’ in Dahlonega, Georgia, where everything is donated, and all the people who work there…are volunteers. Raising the prices to compensate for the volunteers’ efforts? Makes TONS of sense to me!”
Due to shoppers not willing to put things they look at back as they found them the price is being increased due to the time spent by volunteers trying to organize room

But (because the decision had to be made) I would say that this  final note — spotted by Rusty at a B&B in Newfoundland — is my absolute favorite.

LAUNDRY IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE. SORRY Due to Circumstances, the Decision HAD TO BE MADE.

      I hate to sound like a dick, but i wouldve probably called too. Theres only about 5 things i hate and one of them is Animals within a 20 foot radius of my food.

      (One of the other things are commas)

      Don’t go to Europe CS. All of the places I visited seem to have the same policy. Dogs and little children *shiver* were allowed in the dining areas. Free to roam at will they begged from table to table. Though I must say the dogs behaved themselves and slept at their masters feet for the most part.

      The place is a sidewalk cafe. A lot of places like that don’t care if you have a dog with you if you sit outside, nor should they. If you don’t like eating near animals, even outdoors, because of some strange bout of mysophobia, then go fucking sit inside or go somewhere else. Naturally this would take place in California, the home of the big brother state.

      Some people just need to go the eff home and stay there. We have a patio where I work, and I have had people complain to me about the “noise” from the street traffic, the skateboarders, and yes, even a homeless guy hanging out…almost a block away! I never know what to say to these people,( without being rude, of course) but it’s obvious to me, that if you’re bothered by in general life activity going on around you, you should take your (un) happy ass to some secluded, unpopulated place and stay there.

      the crazy lady is excactly that. I live 2 blocks from Ronnie’s – it already has a class “B” health grade, WTF is the point of complaining about animals OUTSIDE? The place has good, cheap food and is constantly frequented by locals walking their dogs. If crazy lazy shows up again *someone* is going to follow her home and commit some atrocious vandalism.

      How far we’ve fallen. Ronnie’s is the actual location where they took that classic photo of dogs playing poker, titled “A Friend In Need”.
      The new ownership is probably upset due to being taken to the cleaners by a cardshark pug too many times.

      How about, if you’re going to a restaurant, leave your dog home where they can be comfortable?

      At the very least, taking your dog to a restaurant, where he/she can’t partake in the lovely food you’re enjoying, is unkind. Dogs and restaurants don’t mix.

      orangetiki. your comment reminds me of this:

      We looked! Then we saw him
      Step in on the mat!
      We looked! And we saw him!
      The Cat in the Hat!

      I just hope you know how to remove the ring from the bathtub once your cat has got through with that place.

      de nada… I’m leaning towards agreeing with you, depending on the type of place, how long you are there, whether it was somewhere you dropped into after a lovely long walk with your dogs (which they thoroughly enjoyed), which also provides an ice cream container full of water for them while you grab a quick refreshment for yourself.

    Considering the shaky writing in the last note, the note-writer was either cut up about the whole affair and their grief is reflected in their penmanship

    OR

    They were writing it on the last working (and currently working) washing machine. People were taking a bunch of washing machines and taking them home. Can you believe it????

      I am leaning toward the idea that they first taped the sheet of paper up and then wrote on it on the wavy panelled wall.

      Which makes me think maybe the “circumstances” were that they kept trying to dry their clothes first and then wash them, and then blamed the machines for not working right.

      It’s a working theory. I’m still collecting data on it.

      Regan, yeah I know. I was watching an episode of the Simpsons last night where Marge was in bed and Homer was standing before her in his underwhere saying something like “Owww look at me Marge, I’m making people Happy! I’m the magical man, from Happy Land, who lives in a gumdrop house on Lolly Pop Lane!!” He walked out, slaming the door on his way, but then opened it again and said, “By the way, I was being sarcastic.” (to which marge replies, “well, duh”) So that’s the reasoning behind my insanity….just so you know.

    The second note now violates federal ADA law, not just state/municipal health department regulations.

    All signs specifically forbidding pets or animals MUST include phrasing similar to or expressing the same idea as, “except for service animals.”

      I’m kind of with the note writer on the pets ban. I love my dog, I love going out for a walk with her along the pier. If I spy a little dinner, I’d love to sit on the patio, watch the waves with my favorite girl, and eat a sandwhich. If I have my laptop with me, I’ll pull it out and write, but because one person has a problem with animals, I’m not able to enjoy the sunny weather with my sweet passive dog. Thanks a lot.

    Mean people don’t suck. They aren’t always fun to be around but mean people are much easier to deal with than snotty little jerks who regularly engage in douche-baggery.

    I’m a mean person. I’ll look you right in your eye and tell you that your kids are ugly,stupid and the product of an incestuous affair. I regularly step on old people’s heels and then plow over them when they fall. My favorite movie is Logan’s Run. Fuck old people. I’ll screw your wife whileyou’re golfing with the boss and leave the used rubber in your dress shoes. Then I’ll hand the video to your daughter when she’s at the office for career day. You don’t even have to piss me off, just annoy me a little. Piss me off and you’ll be a grandfather before you turn 50. Fuck the age of consent.

    I like dogs and cats. Even annoying, yappy debutant accessories and those big monsters that pooped in my yard. When dogs piss me off I blame the people and I take it out on them. How? Well it’s pretty easy to stage an accident where you spill a frozen margarita all over the idiot who brought the unruly dog. It’s also easy to wait in the parking lot and call them in to the state troopers as a drunk drive who nearly ran you over. And then pointed a gun in your face as they drove off. My neighbor’s with the heavy shitters? A midnight dump in their chimney will handle that.

    A mean person would never call the health department because mean people are assholes and not douche bags.

    I’m intrigued by something in the second photo. The paper appears to be standard notebook paper, but it is larger in size than the woman standing by the car. Where does one go to purchase this giant paper?*

    (And do NOT tell me the woman is a midget, because that would mean the car next to her was miniaturized, as well, and THAT, my friend, would be highly dubious, indeed. So, don’t even start down that path. It just leads to a dead end.)

      Also, while it would be nice for taking notes (because you would be able to fit a whole semester’s worth of them on one sheet of paper), the downside would be the necessity of buying a giant printer.

      Most college dorm rooms are too small to comfortably house such a unfeasibly large auxiliary appliance. Still, I know that many college kids are willing to make sacrifices for the latest “tech gear.”
