A call for ceasefire in the Post-it Note Wars

January 29th, 2013 · 35 comments

Could one final Sticky-Note Bomb be enough to put an end to months of guerilla-style passive-aggression?

Next time you have a problem with me skip the Post-it and fucking ask. Thank you. We will not have this prob again.

    This looks like something my inlaws would post on facebook. Is there no shame left?

    What’s the problem? It’s obvious that she cleared the time on the microwave already.

      We can’t see the inside of the microwave or what’s in the sink. It’s entirely possible that one, or both, is filled with something disgusting that no one wants to clean even though they caused it to be there.

      Maybe she forgot to change it for Daylight Savings.

    I love the way the efficient way the writer crosses the H and E and THE and the H and A in HAVE to save time.

    Weirdly, these cabinets looks different from the ones in “Post-It Wars” link. Is it the same people/place?

    They used an entire Post-it for the word “And,” but then squeezed too many words in on the last note and had to abbreviate “Problem.” I bet this was written by a woman since they’re worse at spacial reasoning.

    Yeah, that’s right. I went there. Come at me, sis!

      pooham, you are a genius.

      PS–I always kick my partner’s ass with spatial reasoning. Weirdly, just had this conversation a couple of days ago–him: “there’s no way that could have created that mark, it is the wrong size.” me, “I’m really good at spatial stuff. Trust me. It made the mark.” Him: “No way.” ::tries it:: “Whoa.”

      It was even better before the editor took out the spacing that made the shorter lines centered.

      You know, Poltergeist, I always thought you were female. I suppose you could be, and you’re just speaking from experience… but I apologize for picturing you as a 20-something, skinny girl with purple hair, if that’s not what you are.

      Well thank the gods above we can at least spell the word “spatial.”

      I’m pretty sure you can spell it both ways, but even if you can’t, I still like my way better.

      edit: I guess I also like spelling my name with an extra “st.” I’m revolutionizing the English language!

    It originally started with a single note on the right merely expressing someone’s frustration with not being able to book a table at a well known chain eatery.

    What I want to know is: these notes all look like they were written by the same person at the same time. How do they know that they’re not going to have the same problem again? Because their message is just SO persuasive? Personally I’d say this was just screaming out for further post-it note complaints about every minor niggle.

    I have shown this photo to my friend in accounting who knows every little thing. He says these are not post-it notes. They are from some cheap-ass scratch pads whose only glue is on one edge of the pad. Thus, the need for tape to affix the sheet to the cupboard.

    He also says I own him five cents from his recalculation of our lunch ticket last month, but that’s a different prob.

      Naw, I work in an office and I used to have some off-brand post-its in this color. They come in packs of Yellow! Bright Pink! Bright Green! and this weird dour purple. I used to avoid using this color until the last because every other color was much more attention grabbing and I am one of those absent minded people who puts sticky notes all over my computer and desk to remind myself of tasks. I assume this person, who is anal retentive and frustrated enough to make this sticky note creation, wanted to make sure that his or her sticky notes did not fall and ruin the masterwork.

    Meh. I’d rather someone e-mail or write it down instead of verbally confronting me over it. Then I have evidence of whatever happens.

    I don’t think I’d be able to stop myself from re-arranging these. If you overlap them just so to hide the words lower on the post-its, you can totally change the message.

    skip
    fucking
    with me
    and
    next time
    you
    post
    a problem
    we will not
    thank you

      I picture Elf sitting at her desk, copying out these post-its and rearranging them until she got just the right message.

    I can imagine some annoying smartass taping a piece of paper to her door with a note on it. “But you specified I should skip post-its! This is plain paper so I figured you had no problem with it.”

    Lessons in not using brand names.

    Ech… this offends my graphic design sensibilities:
    Reading left to right on a diagonal – no problem. Reading right to left on a diagonal – no problem. Reading right to left on a diagonal with a sudden switch to left to right of the last note – CONFUSION! CONSTERNATION! RAAAGE!
    … only, y’know, less capslock-y…

    Note-writer fails!

    Looks like a person who’s too cheap to buy the magnetic poetry words kit.
