Emily from Boston summed this one up beautifully, so I’m going to let her take it away. Writes Emily:
1. I’m not making this up.
2. The 389 Highland Ave referred to in the note is a shop called “Your Move Games.” They have a basement where dorky kids congregate and play D&D and WoW and such. Evidently the author and his six witnesses are patrons.
3. Not only is the number six circled, but it is underlined — not once, not twice, but three times.
4. Note the close up. Under the crossed out section it reads “go fuck yourself you corrupt [something i can't make out]. Whatever it was, he rethought his wording and decided to go with a subtler “you’re corrupt.”
Seriously, this note is a work of art.

Casey from Shreveport, Louisiana spotted this on the Coke machine in the office break room. she clarifies: “Henry G.’s comment is in reference to the increase in price, not Katie’s wanting more Coke Zero.”
Meanwhile, Breanna in L.A. saw this somewhat amusing notice in a liquor store on the corner of Hollywood and Wine. (“Did someone pee on it?” she wonders.)

“Our CA (community advisor) posted this friendly note on our bathroom door,” says our submitter, a college student in Milwaukee.
The dorm residents — apparently a libertarian-minded bunch — were pissed about frequent CAD (common area damage) charges for putting recyclables in the trash instead of the mandatory recycling bin. They took a break from ranking up Ron Paul stories on Reddit and Digg to add their two cents here.

Garvey is a 3L at a “relatively cheap” state law school in New York City, where he says “there’s a perpetual joke that it’s still a bargain, even with all its many, many problems.” Garvey found this note attached to one of the ancient computers in the school’s less than state-of-the-art law library. (I mean really, Internet Explorer? puhleez.)

Lanqui spotted this note on a moped that was locked to a street sign in Greenwich Village. That bit of orange there? Yup, that would be a ticket.

Writes Mel in Beaufort, South Carolina: “Our city has decided to go with those shorter, more pleasing-to-the-eye signs for businesses. All new businesses have had to have them for a few years now, but existing businesses are just starting to have to replace their signs. I guess the local liquor store wasn’t too pleased.”
