They take their white carpet very seriously.

Alice in Columbus, Ohio noticed this note taped to the door of a neighboring apartment. “I guess the tenants must have taken over a place that had formerly housed drug dealers and they were fed up with people coming by looking for drugs,” she says. “The note begins amiably enough — ‘Take shoes off at door’ — then takes quite a turn with its devastating conclusion.

Take shoes off at door. We don't sell drugs. Don't look in the window. ***You will be shot.***

Fashion tip: deodorant doesn’t go out of style after Labor Day

September 1st, 2014 · 49 Comments

Scott in Cincinnati says this is merely the latest notice he’s seen posted at his father-in-law’s cab company.

Notice; It has come to my attention that some of us aren't using deodorant. We all need to use deodorant. Also, no more tank tops or sleeveless shirts. this only brings out the B.O.

The cowardly lawn

January 22nd, 2014 · 83 Comments

Writes Claire in Cincinnati: “This individual moved in a month ago and is already getting into a note war with the neighbors!”

To the 'neighbors': Thanks for the letter. Worry about yourself. Not my lawn. For our real neighbors, we apologize. Thanks for being a coward!

Blah blah blah…MURICA!

“From what I know,” says our submitter in Dayton, “the owner of this building wanted to open a used tire store, but city officials denied his paperwork. He eventually opened the business in a neighboring town,” leaving behind this monument to ‘Murica.

Sorry to have painted this flag in the city of Dayton. I wonder if I can get on the wish list. Ha Ha. BS we welcome new businesses. I asked to open in July of 2008 but I'm still closed in the city of Dayton.

Over the (top) rainbow

Writes Tom in Cleveland: “In the parking garage of my apartment building, some B parked in assigned spot 144, which belonged to another B, who then covered B1′s Jeep in harshly-worded notes on multi-colored construction paper.”

DISLIKE This person parked in my spot. Inconsiderate much? I had to park 3 blocks away just so a person could park in a spot I paid for. I'm posting pics of your car info on social media. I have 20,000+ followers. Don't worry...I called management. Leopard print? Try the Jersey Shore!!!

“Frankly, I find this a little bit ridiculous,” says our submitter in Ohio, “but then again, I’m not a man.”

Election fatigue

November 5th, 2012 · 91 Comments

I’ve done some political canvassing before — once in Columbus, Ohio — and in my experience, it was no fun for anyone involved. But don’t worry, kids. It’ll all be over soon.

From Minnesota…

Yes - we're voting. No - we won't be discussing who we are voting for. Yes - I know where our polling place is. No - I'm not telling you if we support or oppose the marriage amendment or school refferendum [sic]. Please don't leave campaign documents.  Thank you!

And Columbus, Ohio…

ES, I am voting for OBAMA, and YES, I know where to VOTE. So please don't knock on my door. P.S. I don't want to hear about the MORMON faith, either. Have a wonderful day.

Garage sales are serious business.

May 29th, 2012 · 94 Comments

Amy in Ohio found this delightful diatribe while browsing through area garage sale listings on Craigslist. “Fortunately I snapped a screenshot, because this gem was soon flagged for removal,” she says. “My favorite part: ‘…nothing but ignorance!’”

To ALL individuals having garage sales and the like. IF you are having a garage sale, PLEASE DO NOT close up at 1:00 p.m. You know you are having a garage sale and to close up so early is nothing but ignorance! Like the flea market vendors. Many people must work (thank God) until 3:00 p.m. or later BEFORE they can make it to any of these functions, and to close up early tells me you are not interested in selling at all, just to have the function to feel you need to be part of a group of people to sit around and gossip and eat. In that case, why not just have hot dogs and pop and not have the garage sale. Also, if you are going to let your nit wit children handle it, well,  you just lost money as well. So please, when having your supposed garage sale, please stay open later or just give it all to the your local charities and get a write off. Gas is very expensive to go running from door to door, let alone to do nothing but close up at 1:00 p.m. and talk with nit wit kids!!!!

Well, it’s not a horse’s head in your bed…

Kayla says this message was left in the dorm laundry room after a girl’s clothes disappeared.

(I can just see the snarky follow-ups now…”Awesome! Free goldfish!”)

This is what will happen to you if you take people's clothes.
