Chris in Cincinnati says this came in the mail with no return address.

The butterfly sticker is a nice touch, no?

Isn't it nice the Garbage men come and take you'r [sic] garbage away, then leave you with the EMPTY cans so that you may put them away.

Screaming Infidelities

April 29th, 2015 · 175 Comments

Writes our submitter in Iowa: “This anonymous note from our “disappointed neighbors” was taped to an iron bench in front of our house – on Earth Day, no less!”

Dear Homeowner,   We, your neighbors, cannot help but notice the obscene amounts of dandelions on your lawn. Do you not realize how terrible it looks? Do you not realize the effect this has on community pride, not to mention property values? A few dandelions - sure. But your lawn is an absolute embarassment. you are screaming, 'I don't care how my property looks' with every passing day. We all agree that your lawn is currently the absolute worst lawn in blocks, and urge you to seriously evaluate your lawn care priorities. Signed, Your deeply disappointed neighbors

Return to sender

October 11th, 2014 · 49 Comments

Writes our submitter: “This note was left in the TEMPORARY mailbox that we put up to collect mail during a substantial construction phase at our house.”

In order to appease the anonymous critic, she says, “I have since placed a large neon green bow around the offending structure,” and plans to continue. “I’m going for the ‘North Pole threw up here’ look,” she says.

You have a beautiful house but your mailbox is ugly. Change it with a better one. xxx

This used to be a pretty doormat.

September 26th, 2014 · 26 Comments

Out submitter in Chicago notes that, remarkably enough, within a day or so of this note being posted (or rather, secured with packing tape to the floor), the oh-so-pretty doormat magically reappeared!

This used to be a pretty doormat until some dumb fuckin' asshole took it

(I’d like to imagine that this was the stolen doormat in question.)

So…what is it about the Minnesota suburbs that makes the idea of killing someone’s pet the height of hilarity?

Here lies the last dog that shit in my yard

Here lies the last dog that pooped in my yard.

At least in Seattle they try to be a bit poetic about it.

Here lies cold and hard the last damn dog that shit in my yard
