Edward says this sign was posted on every floor and inside all the elevators at the hotel that headquartered UCLA’s study abroad program in Granada, Spain last semester.
Can you blame them? I mean, really — what a waste of perfectly good manchego!

Our anonymous submitter says his coworkers were taking stacks of paper towels from the bathroom and putting them in kitchen.
“HR evidently does not agree with this practice and decided to enact a one-towel play in the breakroom kitchen,” he says. (The office billing manager added the follow-up on the towels’ behalf.)

Jesse says he spotted this sign at a great Mongolian restaurant in the Dallas area. “They recently changed their name from Ton’s Mongolian Grill to Tao’s garden, but apparently they haven’t figured out how to spell it yet.”

Three U.S. cities where nature-lovers might want to keep their hands to themselves:
1. Austin, Texas
2. Macon, Georgia
3. Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
(Thanks to Don in Austin, Elizabeth in Macon, and Jasmine in Pittsburgh for risking the wrath of some devoted gardening/second amendment enthusiasts to document these warnings.)

Last year, Emily in Canterbury, England lived in a house with six other roommates — two guys downstairs, five girls upstairs. As is wont to happen in such circumstances, “we were originally all really good mates, but relationships deteriorated as the year went on,” Emily says — “the boys thought the girls were too messy!”
One source of flatmate friction, Emily says, was the habit a couple of the girls had of forgetting their keys when they went out clubbing…and then pounding on the front door at 3 a.m., raving drunk, until one of the guys let them in.
The low point came when one of the guys got woken up by an angry taxi driver rapping on his window (after one of the girls had tossed him 50p and run upstairs). Emily says this note appeared soon after.

You say you’re politically engaged, but do you know where your candidate stands on…vanity license plates? Are they:
a) a bombastic example of the first amendment in action
b) a potent symbol for the reductive nature of America’s two-party political system
c) unwise at any speed
Still undecided? Take a look at the tags Rachel has on her car in Austin, Texas:
And the note she found recently on her windshield:
Meanwhile, in blue-state land…
Which led to this note posted in the office parking garage, and documented for us by Melissa in Long Beach:

Jasy from Laurel, Maryland spotted this beauty while driving down the New Jersey Turnpike.
“I’m dying to know just how blasphemous Denise is to deserve the sign,” Jasy says. “But is it really that surprising that the Anti-Christ would claim Jersey as home base?”
