Well, besides that whole skin cancer thing, there’s the fact that tanning booths — like thrift-store fitting rooms — seem to bring out the animal in everyone. And that’s probably not the kind of “golden glow” you were aiming for, right?
Exhibit A) From Margo in Indiana:
Exhibit B) From Lisa in Ohio, an ominous threat indeed:
Exhibit C) From Emily in England:
Exhibit D) From Ann in Arkansas:
And Exhibit E) From an anonymous fake-baker in Louisiana:

Our submitter, Rob in Cleveland, says he found this note on his computer screen upon returning to his desk after lunch one day. “I honestly don’t bring my toenail clippers to work,” Rob says. “They were just hurting inside my pocket so I put them on my desk and forgot about them, and this is what I get.”
At first glance, I thought the note must have been sarcastic — surely, no one would actually borrow another’s toenail clippers, right? — so I asked Rob for some clarification.
As it turns out, Rob is pretty sure the note was no joke. “The guy who wrote it is one of the grossest people at work,” he explains. And as for why he had toenail clippers in his pocket to begin with? Says Rob: “I cut my nails in my car on the way to work.”
Of course. Well, I’m glad we cleared that one up.

Emily spotted this please in the bathroom of a women’s college dorm in New York City. (“I think the ‘women’s college’ portion is the imperative detail here,” she adds.)
Meanwhile, I’m still a little suspicious of the fact that this person seems dead-set on getting this razor — a razor that has been presumably been used by someone else — returned for her own use. I’m assuming it’s one of those replacable-head types, but even so, you still run the risk of come face-to-face with something like this — a Venus razor used by a roommate of Kayla in Tennessee:
It’s hard to think of something less appropriately named after the goddess of love and beauty, no?

Two simple rules for using the garbage chute:
DO put your dog poo down the chute.
DON’T put your dog, Pooh, down the chute.

So, apparently this is a thing.
At a service station in the U.K., as Kerrie from London noticed, personal safety is the justification.
At a University in Florida, it’s cleanliness.
Meanwhile, in Canada…

Are you enjoying the last few weeks of swimmin’ pool season, kids? Tom in Fayetteville, Arkansas was…until he saw the 11th commandment posted nearby.
And if that doesn’t make you want to suit up and dive in…

Ah, college. While living in an all-female dorm might reduce some types of conflicts…
You also get…this. Explains Hannah in Pullman, Washington: “I live in an all-girls dorm, and guys aren’t allowed to use the bathrooms in the hall. The rule is they are supposed to be escorted out into the lobby…which is a apparently too long of a walk for some people.”

“It seems too many people have made love to the office water cooler,” says Lizzy in New York. And some of them, it seems, are getting a little sloppy.
Lizzy says the “Office of Water” thing refers to the fact that “Our office is full of water. Like, the fridge doesn’t have anything but bottled water and Coke,” but I’m not quite buying it. I’d like to think this came from the EPA’s official Office of Water (Benjamin H. Grumbles, assistant administrator).

Well, our anonymous contributor in Pompano Beach, Florida has one for you.
He explains: “I keep a gym membership so that I can feel good about my financial commitment to my health — not so much for the actual health benefits per se. I hadn’t been to the gym in at least two months when I came across this note posted by the showers. (My shower at home was being worked on.) I’m glad I make it a habit to wear sandals in the shower during my quarterly visits.”

Hannah saw this note on the window of a small toy store in downtown Sarasota, Florida. “They are really cool about it,” Hannah says, ”but people still kiss the window.”
UPDATE: Jessica stopped by the same store recently (nearly two years later) and the sign is still up!
