My esteemed housemates, I have some unfortunate news to report. It appears that our ongoing experiment to see if the dishes would indeed wash themselves has ended and ultimately failed.

If you sprinkle ellipses when you tinkle…

Maybe it’s the manic use of ellipses and exclamation points, but this note makes me extremely uncomfortable.

Says submitter Erica in New York City, “As bad as it can get in the ladies’, I’ve been told the men’s bathroom is even worse.”

PLEASE LADIES........PLEASE

In her defense, Eeka says there were three to four empty spaces available in front of her house when this note was left — two of which she shoveled out herself.

This exercise in redundancy is brought to us by Erika in Los Angeles. It’s like the note-writer couldn’t decide which tactic would be most effective and just opted for all of the above.

REMEMBER!

Four legs good, two legs bad

After reading apt. 10′s response, I can’t help but side with the defendant — especially after Melissa in Omaha revealed that this particular neighbor posts notes like this quite frequently. Because really, that shit is disrespectful.

Dear Lazy Filth Pigs in #10, Since your little boy is too small to get bags into the dumpster, we now have a bag of your trash, diapers and all, lying spread on the ground in front of the dumpster. Not like anybody in this building has any hope that you will, but would you clean up you garbage?

OK first of all I did not now [sic] that. That had happen my son did not tell me.
