I’ll tell you what’s classy, though…

“Let me preface this by saying that the ladies’ room at work is quite clean,” writes Angie in Stamford, Connecticut. “I’m not saying it’s where I eat my lunch, but it’s a very satisfactory restroom.”

It was something of a surprise, then, Angie says, when this sign appeared on each of the walls and stall doors.

COURTESY 101: Ladies - When you are done handling your business please spray. It is not lady like or classy to leave lingering aromas.

In particular, Angie would like to draw your attention to the lower left-hand portion of the sign. “There are several lessons to be learned here,” she says, “perhaps most importantly that one should spray one’s corpses prior to placing them in the ladies’ room.”

There are only 10 types of people in the world…those who remember to bathe regularly, and those who don’t.

Neumont is a strictly computer-science college located on the second and third floors of an office building,” writes Jared in South Jordan, Utah. It’s therefore a point of pride for Neumonters that out of several hundred CS students, “there are [only] a few who seem to forget to shower for a few weeks at a time.”

Thanks to all Neumont U folks who were kind enough to shower and wash their  hair today it made the elevator ride so great. Oh Except that one Guy who's hair has never been washed.

A filthy hap pit

A sign (or ten) that your HR department might have too much time on their hands

September 21st, 2008 · 146 comments

The tenth-floor kitchen at this office has no fewer than ten of these painstakingly laminated, clip-art-covered notes — and our anonymous submitter says this kitchen is only the tip of the iceberg.

“Nearly all of the notes in our office receive the same attention to detail,” our submitter says. “Every time I come to work I have to remind myself that I’m not in a cartoon fairy-tale land of fun.”

Facebook: a place for frenemies

September 19th, 2008 · 124 comments

In this edition of Facebook Friday…an assortment of cat fights in the making, plucked from the newsfeeds of the innocent Facebookers caught in the crossfire!

Exhibit a)

HOW IS IT YOU CALL TO SEE IF A FRIEND WANTS TO CHILL AND YOU GET BLASTED ON OVER SOME BITCH BULL SHIT! THAT MEANS YOUR BULL SHIT JENNY!

Exhibit b)

Wow never thought you could be shit on by the same two people so many times in a month!! Good Riddance & fuck you!!

Exhibit c)

Jordan is beyond pissed at her retarded roommate (but still loves the other two bundles :) )

The smiley face there is a nice touch, but my favorite this time around has to be this doozy of an about-face (read from the bottom up):

Buskers & broomsticks

September 18th, 2008 · 206 comments

Zora Zero spotted this ongoing street-musician spat in Portobello Road Market, London.

BUSKERS Please note: WE LIVE HERE. We can't hear TV/radios or open windows when you play. Buskers who play here have had + and will have water thrown on them and the police called. Please be kind enough to play elsewhere. Thank you

I’m not a Londoner, but living near Portobello Road and complaining about the buskers seems like living near Times Square and complaining about the lights, no?  I was cheered, therefore, to see the responses added by other more busker-friendly neighbo(u)rs at the bottom of the original note.

Buskers, we live here as well and we miss you!!

Admits our submitter (who described herself as “team foreigner, with busker sympathies”): “the paint on the railing was indeed being damaged by the original anti-busking clear-plastic-envelope-taping resident.”

Communication needed

September 17th, 2008 · 147 comments

Writes Harry in New York: “My roomie sent me this e-mail two weeks after telling me I need to move out.  I guess it’s a case of retroactive passive-aggression on my part.”

communication needed

In his own defense, Harry adds, “the ‘light’ is a nightlight and the ‘AC’ is a window fan.”

Lost & found

Our anonymous submitter in California is not the resident of Apartment 105, but she knew exactly who this note was intended for. “The dude in 105 lets his dog out, deposit her gifts on the sidewalk, and then run back. Dude stands and watches her, perfectly at his ease,” she says. “This has been going on for as long as I’ve lived here, so I guess someone finally got fed up.”

Property of Apt. 105

Adds our submitter: “This is not the first time I’ve seen a note like this. The shameless are immune to passive-aggression.”
