Sink squatters

December 10th, 2012 · 23 comments

Spotted, appropriately enough, in New York’s Theater District (though I guess Hell’s Kitchen would have made sense, too):

I've been here since Monday. How about you? I got here last week. I'm staying. Me too. I'm never leaving. Let's make salmonella.

    If you have the time to print notes, you have time to throw that stuff away.

    Or, if you really wanted to be passive aggressive you could clean everything up nice and neat, install a camera and then track the dish leavers. At the end of every night put the offending dish on (or in) the person’s desk with a note. “you left this in the sink.”

    hmmm… maybe it’s a good thing that I work at home.

      and why would I clean up after other people in the office? I am not their maid, mother or wife.

      Probably a good think you do work at home.

      Wait… what? So you are saying wives are supposed to clean up after their husbands? Is this the 1950s?

    The next submitter who sends a photo using a Hipstamatic filter should be stabbed with every one of those salmonella-encrusted forks and knives.

      …and then left in the sink.

      Thank you! What is the point of having a high quality digital camera on a phone if you’re just going to ruin the picture with some silly filter.

      That’s what that is? Oh thank goodness. I was getting seriously icked out. Dishes left in the sink is one thing. A sink rusting out and/or crusted over is another.

    The sink’s so dirty, notes are of irregular shape and something about lighting and color make it look like an art piece to unaware reader.

    You can tell how much I adore pretentious art from the above statement. Can’t you?

    “Let’s Make Salmonella” sounds like a showstopper.

      Well, those utensils probably took a lesson from the media’s
      coverage of the Occupy events, what with their incessant
      “But what are your demands?”

      On the other hand, it could be a bacterial channeling of Walter Sobchak’s line in The Big Lebowski: Nihilists! Fuck me. I mean, say what you like about the tenets of National Socialism, Dude, at least it’s an ethos.

    I always have sympathy for the person who is fed up with cleaning up after other adults in a shared kitchen. At least they went cute instead of bitchy.

    And yeah, that Instagram filter has got to go.

    Ugh, that’s so disgusting. How can a human being do that? It makes me retch. What kind of horrible piece of garbage can’t even take a picture of a sink full of dirty dishes without using Instagram?

    All those utensils with their points up… Makes me shudder a little to think about someone stabbing themselves.

      Oh, I agree. My brother’s girlfriend’s mother’s best friend’s grand daughter put her hand in the sink and stabbed it on a fork that was pointed upwards and she had to get a tetanus shot.

      That couldn’t have been the first time she had to get a shot after getting forked.

    Last time I saw a sink that colour it was in a 1940′s dark room (in use until the late 80s).

    OMG, I just thought the sink was old and gross. I didn’t even realize it was Instagrammed or whatever. Fucking hipster douches. I am sick of you!

      Good, I’m not the only one who thought that it was an old sink.

      The Dish and Spoon are missing. They must have already hooked up.
