Alexandra and her best friend David were thrift-store shopping in Memphis, Tennessee when they spotted this sign (in the restroom, this time…not the fitting room).
What I love about this one is that, unlike most of its kind, this notice doesn’t issue any kind of directive (e.g. “Hey nitwits, don’t flush the merchandise!!!”), nor does it directly address the salient issue at hand (Does the toilet actually work now, or not?). Because, really, a simple “Out of Order” sign would have sufficed, if the latter were the case. Instead, it’s just like, “This one time, at band camp…”
In place of “Thank You,” I think it should say “The End.” Or maybe: “Who the hell wipes with a child’s T-shirt?!”

The long arm of Uncle Sam has extended all the way up to this roommate squabble in Peterborough, Ontario.
“The note on the right,” our submitter says, “is is written by a roommate who (as you can see) does not recognize the hypocrisy of calling someone out for being passive-aggressive in her own passive-aggressive note.”

The curious note was posted in the women’s bathroom of New Orleans City Hall…leaving many unanswered questions behind.
Mad Libs, anyone?

Sure, we’ve seen notices like this one before…although they’re usually from parts of the world with much more questionable plumbing than you’d find (as Jason did) in Northern Virginia.
But this doozy, spotted by Dana at a local coffee shop in Canada, is a first.

Based on the evidence below, I’d say one of John’s male coworkers in Sydney, Australia has taken “holiday spirit” too far. Way, way, too far.

Francesca in Boston spotted this posted in a bathroom on Santorini in Greece. “Because of the island’s old-fashioned plumbing, many bathrooms had similar notes, but only this one had the implied threat of sexual harassment by a Sea God.”
Honestly, though, it’s the awesomely unnecessary 80s-power-suit clip art in this notice — spotted by Taryn in Irvine, California in the ladies’ room of the mortgage bank where she worked one summer — that really cracks me up.

This restroom sign from Baton Rouge, Louisiana manages to combine variations on two of the genre’s most irritating cliches — the rhyme that must be flushed and the clip art that must be stopped…with some additional ridiculous floral clip art thrown in for good measure.
And yet, somehow, this note manages to offend me even more. I don’t think I’ll look at cupcakes the same way again.

I didn’t think office sign illustration could get more gratuitous than this guy, but then Corinna in Seattle came through with this.
(Add a few hand-drawn penises and you’ve got yourself a Perez Hilton special!)

Writes Chris in Riverside, California: “My friend Eric essentially has a LAN center in his garage. Cigarettes and energy drinks are the diet of choice and we (usually 5 to 7 people lanning there at any given time) piss on his fence so we don’t flush the toilet too many times over the evening. He woke up one morning with this note from his mother.”
I’d say Eric got off pretty easy, no?
