Upon moving into their new college house this fall, Danny and his roommates at Boston College received this delightfully punctuated welcome letter from their next door neighbor — delivered via U.S. Postal Service, no less.
I, for one, can’t wait ’til the Ben Affleck adaptation comes out. We’ll have a “late night beer party” to celebrate!

Exhibit a) Spotted at a laundromat in Silver Lake by Jessica in Los Angeles…
Exhibit b) From Ronnie’s Diner, also in LA.., by Valerie:
Exhibit c) From Barnacle Bill’s in Sarasota, Florida:
Exhibit d) From, as Miranda explains, ” the local ‘community thrift store’ in Dahlonega, Georgia, where everything is donated, and all the people who work there…are volunteers. Raising the prices to compensate for the volunteers’ efforts? Makes TONS of sense to me!”
But (because the decision had to be made) I would say that this final note — spotted by Rusty at a B&B in Newfoundland — is my absolute favorite.

Amber received this amazing note in an envelope on her doorstep in Sacramento. “I have no idea which neighbor sent this to me, but I can only assume it was the paranoid-looking woman who lives above me,” she says. “But I don’t do drugs. I don’t even smoke cigarettes!”
