“Is it doubly passive aggressive to use this site to convey this message? I am the creator of this note, and the photo depicts actual conditions. I would love to send a post of this to said roommate at work.” —flushpatrol in Washington, D.C.

Scott saw this note posted to the refrigerator of his friends’ house in D.C. and surreptitiously snapped a photo. “I didn’t want to pry by pulling out the whole note,” he says. “I’m pretty sure Alex was a roommate in the house at some point, but it’s probably been years.”
The magnet’s a nice touch, though, right?

This is a special note indeed. The idiosyncratic spelling, spacing, and bolding are fascinating — and I love how the third sentence is so rhetorical it doesn’t even deserve a question mark. I think what I enjoy most, however, is the after-the-fact realization that the desired action here just wasn’t quite explicit enough.
(Thanks to Molly in Washington, D.C. for submitting!)
