Spilled Milk Carton Kids

August 3rd, 2012 · 23 comments

Karen in Madison, Wisconsin says her daughter left this note on the fridge sometime between midnight and 6:30 am:

If you are going to leave an open bottle of milk on its side in the fridge, make sure the cap is ALL the way on!!! I'm angry with you. >:(

The following afternoon, her brother came back with this:

*ATTENTION* If you ever want to see your milk cap again place 100 dollars in the envelope below

      Well, the post doesn’t quite state that they are kids even; they could be adults living with their parents for all I know.

      Having said that, I’d guess between 10 and 16 or so, likely on the younger end of that range. Are we back on the whole no one under the age of 21 has any wit or intelligence thing?

      It’s Madison, both a big university town and the home of kids who never leave home, my first thought was that the kids were adults in their early 20s or so.

      Yeah, they could absolutely be both young and intelligent. You don’t have to be over 18 to know how to do smart things like keep your cat indoors. :P

      Hmm, how old does someone have to be to appreciate a 9 day old callback?

      At least 9 days old, I would assume.

    I like that the daughter crossed out the misplaced apostrophe.

    I want to know what’s up with the bottom magnet in the top picture. I get all the canoeing and kayaking symbols, but what’s the beet for?

      It’s a rutabaga. Rutabaga is a local paddlesports shop.

    This is so funny! By that I mean, it must be a slow day.

    I wish I could see what’s written on the paper in the photograph. It looks like a threat.

    I did something like this with my mom once. I did laundry while visiting and accidentally brought home the little fabric cover of the couch arm (must have been folding clothes on the couch). I laughed so hard when I found it in my laundry. I took pictures of it and sent a ransom note made out of newspaper clippings.

    I have a son and a daughter. I anxiously await these kind of notes to each other being left around the house.

      My daughters are 8 and 6, and they already do stuff like this.

    Hey sis, haven’t heard not to cry over spilled milk?

      She didn’t cry, she got angry, and you wouldn’t like her when she’s angry.

    Team sister here. No-one likes having the fridge filled with milk.
    Though the brother’s note is hilarious.

    So the 16yo who wasn’t responsible for the leak cleaned it up! There’s a parenting win right there!

    Meanwhile, last week, I opened one of the kitchen cupboards at work to get out my jar of peanut butter, and found the bottom of the jar covered in honey. I cleaned it off the jar, and then opened the cabinet to look for spilled honey, and found that my boss’s ancient can of pineapple had exploded at some point, and the juice had congealed in there. I just closed the cabinet and took my PB back to my desk and tucked it into the drawer.
