And/or random things

May 22nd, 2007 · 11 comments

Such a perfect little hat trick at the end of this note (submitted by Laura in Baltimore) — the four exclamation points, the heart, the “thx.”

Please refrain from leaving piles of work and/or random things on my chair when I'm away! It makes me want to poke my eyes out!!!

    This note just exudes the author’s self-satisfaction. What’s most un-charming in a note like this one is the absolute ignorance about how it will be received. I can imagine the chair the NEXT time the author is away.

    I agree 100% with the sentiment of the note, yet the last post made the most sense of it’s probable perception – and backlash.

    I’d like one, quite similar to this note here, but it would list MY KEYBOARD or RANDOMLY ON MY DESK… you know, the INBOX I have just doesn’t have the impact I suppose of getting the work to me.

    Sadly, my work areas is in such a constant state of disarray that the only way for anyone to be sure I will see a fax or new mail or anything else left while I am away is for them to leave it in my chair! Hey, it’s a newsroom.

    Hmmm… well, I’m not going to stop, so you’d better sharpen your knitting needles, chum.

    The heart at the end is that delicate touch that makes this piece passive-aggressive.
