This brilliantly understated little note comes to us from a campus library at the University of Auckland, where submitter Louise says the staplers do seem to get jammed into disrepair on a fairly regular basis.

Writes Heather in Kentucky: “I keep a basket of candy on my desk, but after having my candy basket completely cleaned out during the night shift on several occasions, I started locking it in my boss’s office overnight.”

Various religious-themed notes have been popping up all over our submitter’s workplace in Phoenix, Arizona. “Several co-workers have found these messages in their offices, stuck in between papers, and written on whiteboards,” she says, but so far no one has come forward to claim authorship.
One of most recent notes showed up in the office kitchen one morning.
Another note turned up beside it sometime after lunch.

“My buddy has to share his office with the only color printer on the floor,” says Murray in Birmingham, Alabama.
(Based on this note, I wouldn’t be surprised if he shared his office with a Louisville Slugger, too.)
