This isn’t just a note — it’s a work of art. And it’s about 100 shades of amazing.

I’ll let Rich explain: “I had a party at my house once in college, and one of our roommates who was going to be gone was really scared that someone was going to sleep in his bed. so, instead of, you know, telling us not to use his room, he decided to post this hilarious note that only an aspiring personal injury lawyer could produce.”

Found on the company dishwasher by Pete M….

DO NOT OPEN THIS MACHINE WHEN IT IS ON!?!? If you would like a lesson in telling the difference between the machine being on or not, please see reception

The text at the bottom reads: “If you would like a lesson in telling the difference between the machine being on or not, please see reception.” ) Now that’s a Power Point presentation I’d love to see.

A holiday wish

June 6th, 2007 · 9 comments

Writes Heidi in Kansas City, Missouri: “In my building, the decorating committee of condo owners added lamps to the hallway tables on each floor. Someone started turning the lamps off on some floors, and someone else left this note on the bulletin board in the building’s laundry room. Gotta love that festive holiday stationery!”

Dispatches from an oh-so-common passive-aggressive battleground: “the common area.”

THESE TABLES ARE EVERYBODY'S NOT JUST YOURS! IF U CAN STORE JUNK UNDER THEM, I CAN STORE PAINT ON TOP OF THEM. WORD.

So, whose side are you on?
