Thank you for ruining for my life.

Shanna spotted this note of appreciation outside the room of an resident advisor in her freshman dorm. ”And yes,” she says, “he actually did get in bed with someone’s girlfriend.”

Jeff, Thank you for getting in bed with my girlfriend. You ruined my life.

An artistic phallacy

September 9th, 2011 · 51 Comments

Says Michael, of this note from the bulletin board of his college dorm: “It pretty much speaks for itself.”

TO THE INDIVIDUAL OBSESSED WITH DRAWING PENISES: Rest assured that you are the only personal who finds humor in this. While I am glad you are so open in expressing yourself, it is rather distasteful to be depicting to your desires in such great detail on everybody's doors. If you care to enjoy your phallic artwork alone in your own place of residence, that is perfectly fine by me. However, there are a number of students who fail to appreciate your unique style of expression on their property. The next time time you feel the urge to create penises, do it on canvas and take it to an art show. Maybe you'll make some money out of the deal.

Okay, crazy cat lovers — enough. Let’s get back to a topic we can all agree on, like, say, how some people are OMG soooo dumb. (Lawls all around!) For example, Jeremy claims the colorful banner to the left was posted by an R.A. at a dorm on his California college campus.

Do you feel inspired now?

March 18th, 2010 · 198 Comments

At our submitter’s college dorm in Lexington, Kentucky, one of the RAs posts an inspirational quote on the bathroom door each week. When one of the residents questioned why those “thoughts/encouragements” always happened to come from the Bible, the RA responded with a new source of inspiration.

You know, the Bible isn't the only place to get inspiration quotes FYI.

’Bama bombs

January 7th, 2010 · 81 Comments

Tripp was visiting his friend’s dorm at the University of Alabama when he spotted this note from the floor’s RA posted on the door to the men’s bathroom.

Adds Tripp: “I’m with the person who added on to the note. A bunch of teenage boys probably aren’t going to be spending that much time hocking loogies at the shower walls.” To which I would add: “Ewww, gross.”

Are you sure it's spit?

P.S. Hook ’em Horns!

The hair-on-the-wall problem

May 2nd, 2008 · 75 Comments

This note was posted in the girls’ toilets at a college dorm in Canberra, Australia.

ATTENTION: NO MORE APPLYING HAIR ON THE WALL CRAP! IT'S SIMPLY DISGUSTING AND CREEPY! OK, DON'T THINK YOU CAN FOOL ANYONE BY PUTTING YOUR HAI ALONG THE BLACK TILES NOW. T'S A FUCKING SHOWER, WHICH MEANS THE WATER IS RUNNING. WASH IT DOWN! YOUR MOM'S NOT HERE TO CLEAN FOR YOU.

Later, this note was slipped under the doors of everyone on the floor.

Or take a cab!!!

Cameron says the window cases in her college dorm are typically filled with run-of-the-mill upcoming event calendars or bland motivational posters, so this educational display caught her a little off guard.

No bread and circuses! But maybe an ice cream social?

November 15th, 2007 · 162 Comments

“Our CA (community advisor) posted this friendly note on our bathroom door,” says our submitter, a college student in Milwaukee.

The dorm residents — apparently a libertarian-minded bunch — were pissed about frequent CAD (common area damage) charges for putting recyclables in the trash instead of the mandatory recycling bin. They took a break from ranking up Ron Paul stories on Reddit and Digg to add their two cents here.

hey guys!

Come get some

October 26th, 2007 · 148 Comments

Lisa in Berkeley says she was doing laundry in her dorm building when someone pointed out this amazing note to her. “According to that person, who knew the note-poster through a friend, ‘The towels were actually nice. They were from Kohl’s or something.’”

I just want whoever stole my fucking towels last night, btwn the hours of 3 and 8 am, to know that u deserve to die for that shit, its [sic] trifling, and disgusting. I wiped btwn my legs with those towels! U are nasty. Please know that if either I or my roommate notice our towels in your load one day, and [sic] ass kicking will surely follow. 4th floor Slottman residents, come get some.

Lisa says the note has since been taken down. “I guess either an RA got to it, or someone got a beating.”
