Our submitter in Chicago says that there a used to be a trash can near the front door of her apartment building, but because it was always overwhelming with doggie poop bags and other smelly trash, she wasn’t sad to see it go. Apparently, some of her neighbors are still in denial.

Keith passed along this gem from his friend Ben, a professional musician, who spotted this on the wall of a restroom at a Central Florida club. (Another one for the “How many times did this have to happen before they made a sign about it?” files.)

Our submitter from Little Rock, Arkansas offers the following mea culpa: “I was heading to the pool this afternoon, and while loading my car (a blue Mustang) I set my cup of ice water on the ground.

Sure, the notewriter could have simply thrown the cup in the garbage using half as much effort — and that might have been the classy, neighborly thing to do. But it’s the principle of the thing, you see: honest mistakes will not be tolerated!

That note, in turn, inspired this Dadaist creation:
