Writes out submitter, Erica: “I work in the Lower East Side of Manhattan, in a building comprised of a variety of offices and studios (fashion brands, art galleries, recording studios, artists, etc.) I find this note exceptionally funny, because in the three years I’ve worked in this building I’ve experienced the exact same rude, pompous behavior.”

My first thought after reading this note: “Hmm, I’m not sure what being a “wannabe hipster” has to do with not picking up your mail.”

Our submitter, a teacher in North Carolina, received this from one of her students at the end of this year. I think my favorite part of this letter is the part that got erased — which, as far as I can make out, says, “I thought were kind of nice” and “P.S.

Our submitter, a pharmacist, says this note was written on the back of a patient’s invoice. “She often has hand-written notes demanding an explanation for charges she incurred, but I think this might be the first product complaint I’ve seen,” he says. “I’m kind of surprised it has taken her 80-some years to learn that cough syrup tastes like ass.”
