Writes out submitter, Erica: “I work in the Lower East Side of Manhattan, in a building comprised of a variety of offices and studios (fashion brands, art galleries, recording studios, artists, etc.) I find this note exceptionally funny, because in the three years I’ve worked in this building I’ve experienced the exact same rude, pompous behavior.”

My first thought after reading this note: “Hmm, I’m not sure what being a “wannabe hipster” has to do with not picking up your mail.”
Then I read our submitter’s (unapologetic) explanation: “My neighbor left this taped to the mailbox in the lobby due to my tendency to leave coupons that are mailed to me on a small table under our mailboxes.” The connection: Both can be really fucking obnoxious!

Our submitter, a teacher in North Carolina, received this from one of her students at the end of this year. I think my favorite part of this letter is the part that got erased — which, as far as I can make out, says, “I thought were kind of nice” and “P.S. I think you were nice sometimes.” Way to dial it back there, Faith.
Sure, she failed you, Mrs. B, but she signed it with love!

Meanwhile, our submitter Ellen spotted this one at a drive-through daiquiri-store in Louisiana. “Apparently, you can buy everclear in a Styrofoam cup at 11 am without leaving your car, just you can’t pay for it with boob money.”

Our submitter, a pharmacist, says this note was written on the back of a patient’s invoice. “She often has hand-written notes demanding an explanation for charges she incurred, but I think this might be the first product complaint I’ve seen,” he says. “I’m kind of surprised it has taken her 80-some years to learn that cough syrup tastes like ass.”

Writes Libby in Green Bay, Wisconsin: “In my office, about 100 people share one communal fridge. One person has been bringing a gallon of milk for months and completely ignoring how much room it takes up. Apparently, someone had had enough of their inconsiderate nonsense.”
After all, the considerate Wisconsinite would just hitch his dairy cow up in the breakroom like everyone else.
