So, this is what you’ll see if you visit Whitehouse.gov right now. Sigh.

Some submissions may not be processed, and we may not be able to respond to your inquiries.

The gift that keeps on giving

August 12th, 2013 · 54 Comments

Our submitter stumbled upon this (excessively punctuated) gem while reading reviews for a product she was considering purchasing on Amazon.

A gift for my niece. I sure hope she like's it. She didn't write me a Thank-you note. But, she likes to sew, so it seemed like an appropriate gift.!

How many roommates does it take to change a light bulb?

April 14th, 2013 · 65 Comments

It’s stuff like this that makes me remember why I live alone…

How many Marks and Kirks does it take to change a lightbulb? Answer: It takes Will and Jenni. How many Wills and Jennis does it take to buy household items (ex: Toilet Paper/paper towels/dish soap/chips/soda/lightbulbs/trash bags/etc)? Answer? None, because Mark buys all that stuff with money from his own pocket. Maybe if Will and Jenni spent more money on others, rather than just on themselves, this kind of thing wouldn't happen.

Do you hear the people sing?

Cynthia in San Francisco says she was about to check the class schedule at her gym when she saw that their website was no longer operational. “There is so much YES going on here,” she says, of the screenshots she was able to grab. “I barely make it to the gym anyway and this is a great excuse to quit altogether. I’m more of a yoga person anyhow!”

Fitness SF preferred to ignore our invoices instead of paying them. As a result this website is no longer operational.

Writes our submitter, “Bob L,” in California: “I posted a negative review on Yelp of a local business. Next time I came in, I saw this note posted on their bulletin board. Glad I didn’t use my real name!”

Bob L. From Yelp, When you grow up or grow a pair, you know where to find me! Unlike you, I don't hide behind the internet!!

Are you Facebook friends with your landlord?

December 3rd, 2012 · 59 Comments

Ryan’s friend M is “…very direct, let’s say.” So when her property management company sent Facebook friend requests to her and her housemates — after ignoring countless communications about various maintenance issues — Ryan knew the results would be “interesting, let’s say.”

Err, perhaps the division of Facebook friends should have been included in the settlement?

How many scientists does it take…

June 19th, 2012 · 37 Comments

Two unisex bathrooms; two crops of overly-educated office drones; one shared problem.

IT DOESN'T TAKE A BRAIN SURGENT TO CHANGE THE TOILET PAPER ROLL. SERIOUSLY... [Apparently, though, it takes a Scientist to spell Surgeon correctly.]

Women. Always something to complain about.
