It’s not a chore; it’s a date!

Spotted by Kathy at her office lunchroom in Seattle:

1: Hate to state the obvious...But-Your Mother doesn't work here...Please clean up after yourselves 2: Mom never really did much cleaning. She was kind of a drunk. 3: it shows...

The real sad reality?

    Is it weird that my first thought was “Wow, what is their budget for colored paper?!”

    Wow, Mr. Orange Paper has “Hey, guys! I can be funny, too!” written all over him in so many sad ways. The lack of capitalization at the beginning. The ellipses for no good reason. The gratuitous quotation marks. The glib dismissal that makes no sense when you think about it for more than 0.3 seconds.

      I definitely guffawed out loud at the part with the lysol and the condom… though unfortunately, that’s not far from the truth 60-100 years ago…

      Lysol actually used to be a vaginal sanitizer. Yes, ladies, your grandma probably sprayed Lysol on her bajingo.

      I had to research the history of Lysol. Holy cow. Sure enough… was marketed as a douche! Also used by alcoholics for its alcohol content. My teeth are grinding together and I can’t stop it. AAAARRRGGGH!

    Hate to state the obvious, but love to open the package of bold-colored paper to -really- emphasize my point!

    What I love about Sarah is how she subtley flaps her arms while she talks. She’s a virgin white dove in her heart.

    I love the link that you posted! Thank you!!! I shared it on my Facebook page. It makes me crazy that women are almost always portrayed as the cleaners of the family.

      Well, as sexist as it may seem, there is some truth to it. I can guarantee you that if you surveyed every household in America, women would make up the majority of “cleaners.” There’s more money to be made by advertising to the larger audience, but rest assured that there are some new commercials targeted at men. Gender roles are slowly but surely becoming more blurred.

    Kills 99.9% of 3,000,000 germs? That leaves 3000 germs per square inch! How’s anyone going to survive that?

    And let’s not forget the commercials where women represent dirt and mud who are ecstatic at being “picked-up” after being rejected for so long. Way to target the market.

    So we get it now.
    In addition to all men being portrayed as idiots all women are desperate housewifes who lead unfulfilling lives.

    Ad people are creeps

    I wonder if family owned and operated businesses have a different line they use, in case someone’s mother does actually work there. Or does the mother actually clean up the place, making such notes unnecessary?
