Our submitter in Portland, Oregon saw this sign while out for her morning run. Strangely, she took a pass on the hot date.

Noooo! Why the blurred number? He sounds like quite the catch.

Dibs! Keep your nasty paws off my man! He obviously knows how to please the ladies!

Say no more,you had at me at “cheating”..

I’m dying with curiosity about the comment scrawled on the bottom: “SHE DID–BUT I WOULDN’T–”
Sep 5, 2013 at 1:31 am rating: 39
She, who?? The 17-yr-old? One of the Craigslist hookers? Another woman? A passerby (in which case the passerby’s friend would be a second notewriter)?
I must know!

If I had to guess, she’s talking about her refusal to go downtown on him which is obviously why he had no choice but to turn to the red light district and an experienced high school junior.

“Gave me an STD.”…Bastard! He never gave me anything!
Sep 5, 2013 at 5:42 am rating: 53
Does he have a sister?

This is more sad (std and pregnant) than funny.
I think the comments will prove to be funnier than the PAN. ; )

Yeah, this PAN broke my heart a little bit.

I hope 708 is the prefix cus 708 area code is here in chicagoland

Clearly says “Portland, Oregon.” Though I suppose he could have moved or be from Chicago.

The best hookers are in Shaumburg, natch.

If this sign is the worst of her wrath, he got off easy.
Sep 5, 2013 at 10:23 am rating: 22
This, exactly. Hell hath no fury like a pregnant and infected woman scorned.

Is this the new way to announce you’re having a baby. I’m curious to see what the birth announcements will look like.
Sep 5, 2013 at 10:25 am rating: 26
Is there a Hallmark card for that?

I’m envisioning this note sticking out of the beak of a cardboard stork-dressed-as-mailman with the little pink/blue balloons floating overhead.

I’m surprised that “left me pregnant” was the least of her concerns. It’s like she was more angry about the cheating and hookers than her own reproductive health.
Do you think she will have the baby?
Sep 5, 2013 at 11:32 am rating: 1
She did- But I wouldn’t-
Sep 5, 2013 at 2:19 pm rating: 27
Well, the cheating, hookers, and STD all have an effect on her reproductive health and the health of her baby. If it’s one of those STDs that can only be treated, not cured, she has to watch out to make sure the baby doesn’t get it. Right down to possibly having a C-section so the baby won’t get genital warts on it’s face or something of that nature the second it’s born.

I didn’t get that impression at all. I think she was following the chronological order of events.
Sep 5, 2013 at 5:13 pm rating: 7
Hopefully she was infected before she was impregnated. Catching something during a pregnancy, especially early pregnancy, is dangerous since relatively benign bacterial and viral infections can cause horrible illness and deformity in a developing fetus.

One day when taking a country highway from the Twin Cities down into NE Iowa, I saw a HUGE sign on someone’s big front yard, naming the guy who’d done her wrong and calling him a lying, cheating bastard. If I’d had a camera back then, I probably would have pulled over to take a picture. The letters had to be painted pretty big in order for me to read the whole thing as I drove by at 50-60 mph. I rarely go that route, only when I’m going to that part of Iowa, so by the time I had to go that way again, a couple of years later, it was gone.
You’re welcome for this pointless post.

This is the second time you’ve told us about something PAN-worthy, but didn’t have the picture of it. In beginning to think you’re a tease!
Sep 5, 2013 at 4:37 pm rating: 17
I AM a tease! BUT: If the boyfriend and I run errands as part of date night tonight, I will ask him to stop at the corner to take a picture of crazy neighbor’s signs on his property! AT christmas, the guy decorates the borders with lights. : )

What a slimy douche. I’m glad he’s her ex.
Sep 5, 2013 at 5:15 pm rating: 2
The person who wrote the sign is the man who was cheated on. The person he is describing is his wife, who cheated on him with a man that…
That’s why “she did – but I wouldn’t”.

Would you care to explain how a man was ‘left pregnant’?
Sep 5, 2013 at 9:52 pm rating: 14
I’m sure the need to explain such things is what drives Ms. Onymous’ desire to post Ann Onymously.

@Dan There are men with uteri.
Sep 8, 2013 at 11:24 pm rating: 0
Some men have more than one uterus? That’s terrifying.

That dog in the bottom right corner of the picture looks pretty interested. Probably because that sign is blocking access to his favorite piss-spot. Which begs the question: why is this sign posted on a bush?

I hope for his sake, the ex-husband swung up to Washington for the 17 year old as 18 is the age of consent in Oregon. This story could get far more dramatic very fast.

Vancouverites come down to Portland to duck the sales tax, Portlanders head up to Vancouver to duck the age of consent.

Yaknow, that was a perfectly good box before she ruined it with her missive. I weep for the box.
Sep 6, 2013 at 4:47 am rating: 2
You are looking at it all wrong. She recycled it into a sign. When the divorce is final, the court will most likely award this sign, and nothing else, to the cheating husband. He will then use it as a nap mat when he’s homeless and living on the street. She gave new life to that old cardboard box. She’s to be commended.
Sep 6, 2013 at 7:23 am rating: 9
But it wasn’t an “old” cardboard box, and it wasn’t “recycled” — that was a brand new box! The little tab that holds the top flaps open until you’re ready to close them is even still intact. (It’s below “WITH” / above “AND” on the second/third panels.)

Well that just tears it! My hubby must be slacking, all he leaves me with is a wet butt when he doesn’t put the seat down.
