Sinners in the hands of an angry American

January 29th, 2015 · 76 comments

Amanda in Florida works near a lovely bridge where, she says, “you are almost assured to see manatees at every visit.” On one side of this bridge is “a very beautiful home”…and now this very disturbing sign.

I hope God takes pity on your soul because my nostrils are eager to be filled with he stench of your burning flesh as you descend into the depths of hell

Have you and your kids had “The Talk?”

January 23rd, 2015 · 72 comments

Something to consider the next time you consider staying at a Holiday Inn Express on your next family vacation…

Sounds like you guys had a great night. Congratulations. Just wanted to thank you for the opportunity to, at 3 am, have the conversation with my 7 year old son with autism that no one was coming through the wall and the people next door aren't really hurt. It was really awesome. Have a great day. #thishotelhasthinwalls

When I first saw the above note on reddit, I experienced a bit of déjà vu. It took me a sec to figure out why…

Who’s going postal now?

January 18th, 2015 · 58 comments

Emily in Pennsylvania recently received this New Year’s Card — only a few weeks late, and oh-so-charmingly decorated by the person who mistakenly received it in the first time.

Please deliver to CORRECT ADDRESS. You stupid mail people are constantly delivering various letters to WRONG ADDRESSES.  LEARN TO READ CORRECTLY.

“So seldom that a letter, among the thousands that are constantly passing about the kingdom, and not one in a million, I suppose, actually lost!”

—Jane Austen, Emma
