And after all, the people to whom these notes were addressed are the ones who put them online for the whole world to see, so we’re all good. In fact, we’re so good we figured you would enjoy a second installment and went to work in order to make it happen. Grab a pen and take a look.
The Right Kind of Note to Leave
Maybe you’ve worked in a place that has a communal fridge. Maybe you’ve worked at a place that has had a number of thefts from the fridge, and tempers have been blown. For some, the workday is a difficult time, and knowing you have a soda waiting in the fridge for you might be the only thing that helps you get through all eight hours of your day.
But then you open the fridge to find it stolen... Well, this person did some stealing but was willing to replace it. We wonder why he took it in the first place. Was he desperate for caffeine? Did he require a jolt of sugar for some diabetes-related reason? Was he unaware of ownership and, once notified, ashamed of his actions? No matter the reason, good on Justin.
Hiding the Truth
This coaster brings up a somewhat salient point – at what point does a desire for alcohol go from a hobby or something you do with your friends into a problem? The somewhat recent advent of fun microbreweries or little pubs that have exploded across America can help to hide the truth for a little longer. However, even the people who are downing one special, fancy, limited-edition beer after another will eventually realize that they need a little bit of help.
Then again, a person who writes such a nice note on a coaster probably won’t feel like doing anything about it any time soon. We do hope that this note was at least partially in jest – it’s hard to enjoy it when someone really needs to get help.
No, Daddy Loves You More Than That
This guy built a little blackboard for his daughters to leave him notes, and at some point after it, a neighbor came over to borrow something. We’re assuming it was a tool, but we don’t know why. The owner of the house (whom we are going to call Daddy) then caught sight of the blackboard, which now bore this message.
It almost looks like the daughters themselves left the message, but it’s hard for anybody to write on a blackboard very well their first time. It’s really only teachers who ever gained the skill in the first place, but now they all have whiteboards, so it doesn’t matter anyway. Now the big question: did Daddy leave this message up for his children to find, or did he get rid of it as soon as possible?
We’re So Sorry About Your Ebb and Flow
This is a whole lot of words that basically come down to, “You’re parking somewhere I don’t like, and I’m going to make up reasons to get you to move.” Maybe this person is parking on the street (which would certainly, in the words of the note, "certainly ruin the ebb and flow," whatever that means).
Maybe the person was parking in front of the note-giver’s property, which would make us a little more willing to be on their side. Some of us have probably had to deal with something like this, so we might be ready to get in line behind the person who left this note so we can leave our own. Honestly, though, this note seems a little more mean-spirited. “Ebb and flow.” Give us a break.
They Can Get Quite Hot
Using a hair dryer on your hair helps to keep it looking good and ready for stepping out of the showers at your local gym, but that’s more or less the only thing you should use it for, other than drying off books like in “The Incredibles.” It’s called a hair dryer, and that is what it’s for. If you’re in a gym locker room and see anything else being dried off, it can pretty quickly turn your stomach.
Not only that but there are some safety reasons why the management wouldn’t want to encourage any misuse. Stuff can be melted, and people can angrily want it replaced. Well, you shouldn’t have shot hot air at it, then. Also, there’s a sanitation problem for some people, so please just use it on your hair. Your HEAD hair.
We Think This One Might Be a Little Unreal
A person reports that he or she found this note wedged into the door and was embarrassed about it, but it’s pretty clear that this isn’t really a note that a neighbor wanted to pass on. For one, Reddit and karma (the fake internet points that you can accrue on that site) are pretty blatant and are probably a reference to all the other notes of this variety that people “find” that are half bragging and half trying to create something that is popular on the site.
This one is clearly fake, but we’re not sure if any of the other notes on this page will be real or not. It can sometimes be hard to tell, but there are always going to be those cynical people who refuse to believe anything. Because they’re broken inside.
A Very Heavy Note
Clearly, this person is not happy about anything that is happening in his or her life, but at least they have some pretty good handwriting. It’s hard not to feel bad for this person since he or she is very clearly suffering in some way. Is this just the same kind of aimless teenage angst that we all feel between the ages of thirteen and nineteen?
Or is it the more long-running dread that people in their twenties have been experiencing thanks to our brave new world? A change in scenery is one of many ways people try to elevate themselves out of their lengthy funks, but this was clearly not the proper tactic for this person. They at least liked the place they stayed, we guess, so there’s that.
Kinda Looks Like a Baby Ruth
A new employee starts working and decides to bring in a snack for all the other employees, along with a note saying how excited he or she is to start working. So far, that sounds great. Quite thoughtful and an excellent way to not only let people know you’re working there but to immediately make a statement. If it had stopped there, we would have had no notes. But...you see...the brownies have a particular shape.
The funny thing is, if they weren’t in that shape, they would look amazing, which tells us something we never knew about brownies. Apparently, this is for an outpatient clinic, which does explain a little – if you work in the health field, you start to worry less about how things look. They can have a twisted sense of humor.
Not Sure How We’d Take This One
“J,” a girl, gets this note from someone, and it goes on for a while. The guy worked on a 147-acre farm like a man when he was ten. It’s hard to compete with that. Then again, there are lots of other people out there who know how to spell this woman’s name and will be able to leave their own name at the bottom without being an embarrassment.
They probably won’t just leave a note that will make J want to start carrying a weapon with her at all times. At least he was able to leave a compliment and say that she smells good. If you want to attract a woman, it’s always a good idea to lead with a good word. But maybe don’t say that you’re obsessed after one meeting.
Letting the Whole Neighborhood See
When we as humans are at our most intimate and uncovered, most of us prefer to have some element of safety. We only get this way when we are alone or with one specific person. So receiving a note like this one in your mailbox, which very gently lets you know that you might be showing off a little more than you had imagined, is mortifying for most.
They thought they were the proper amount of sneaky with it, but curtains can show more than you think if you don’t take the time to test things out. These neighbors were able to watch the whole show, and whether or not they were interested, they were able to figure out what was happening easily. It's time to invest in some heavier drapes. Or maybe turn the light off.
I’ll Monster Truck You
There are few things worse than when a car blocks you in. It can really ruin your entire day and make you very late to work. In this person’s case, it clearly had a very negative impact on their morning, as seen by the intimidating note that they left. We are wondering how they have access to a monster truck.
You can be sure that if this car blocks this person in again, there will be serious consequences, and to be honest, we don’t blame them. We know just how much that can ruin your day. And no offense to the monster truck owners out there - but they're pretty big.
Malcolm's note seemed to exude a sense of satisfaction that can only come from rubbing something in someone's face. His joy must have been palpable, but it serves as a warning to us all. Our behavior towards our neighbors can have far-reaching consequences, and we never know when we might need their help.
It's easy to fall into the trap of thinking that we don't need to be nice to those around us, but the truth is that we never know when we might need their assistance. Malcolm's message reminds us that we should always strive to be kind and understanding.
The Dog Park
Listen up, doggo, if you wanna sit on the ground and chill all day, make sure you're not doing it in someone else's parking spot. This car owner needs a spot to put their car because, evidently, there is nowhere else to do so. It also appears that this is the only space for the dog. Sounds like a conflict.
The best part about this? The dog will obviously get the memo once he reads the note on the windshield. Must be a very intelligent dog! Come to think of it; we have a feeling that this person might not have been addressing a literal dog who can drive a car with his bare paws.
BMW State of Mind
BMW people are not like us common folk. Or at least that's what they like to think. The truth is that on the inside, they are just as insecure as the next person, only with fatter wallets. As evidenced by this note, this inconsiderate BMW owner took up some unnecessary parking space.
This note writer, who also happens to be a "worthless Toyota driver" (just to get the point across) thought it was good to let the driver know. We appreciate the humor! Listen though, we don't care if you're driving a BMW, a Toyota, or a toy car - don't take up as much parking space as necessary!
Move Away Maybe
Passive-aggressive behavior can be quite frustrating to deal with, especially when it comes from someone living in close proximity. However, the sarcastic remark about "adding some color" hints at a more humorous approach to the situation. Perhaps the neighbor who receives the note will appreciate the musical reference and see the irony in the situation.
As for whether the note will actually change their behavior, it's unlikely. But the writer's talent for writing and their ability to create a clever and well-written note is certainly admirable. Who knows, maybe they can use their writing abilities for more productive endeavors in the future.
Best Note Ever
Leaving one's clothes in a shared dryer for an extended period can be an incredibly frustrating experience for others in the building. Not only does it cause delays and inconvenience for those waiting to use the machine, but it also creates a sense of disrespect towards others' time and space.
However, amidst such situations, there are individuals like Max from 3F who make a living in a shared community a more pleasant experience. Max's creativity is not limited to his artistic pursuits, as evidenced by his attempt to help his neighbors by folding their sheets. Such acts of thoughtfulness and consideration make him an ideal neighbor, and it's no wonder that his fellow residents support and appreciate him.
Snorkel Not Included
The theft of a 4-year-old's paddling pool may seem like a senseless act, leaving both the child and their family feeling frustrated and violated. However, it is possible that the thief had a valid reason for taking the pool, such as concern for the child's safety or a need for a pool themselves.
The note left by the neighbor suggests that they may be quick to judge others and assume the worst about their actions. Instead of giving their neighbors the benefit of the doubt, the neighbors chose to confront them with a sarcastic and potentially hurtful and psychologically devastating message.
Although "Game of Thrones" has aired its last episode, we are not going to risk any spoilers for the book, which turned into a hit television series, pretty much followed by every person on the planet. Instead, we will just explain the note that was left on this windshield.
On the show, the Lannisters are famously known for executing anyone who gets in their way. Accordingly, whoever parked here should definitely feel threatened and start watching their backs. After all, the Lannisters were known for hating people who parked their horses in their stables if we're going to use an analogy from that fictional time period.
Upon reading the note left by her neighbor, the "Lady of the House" felt a sense of unease and concern. The message seemed ominous, and she couldn't help but wonder if she was in danger. Perhaps her neighbor had taken an unhealthy interest in her life, or worse, had sinister intentions.
To avoid any potential conflict, it may be wise for the "Lady of the House" to reach out to her neighbor and establish a friendly rapport. A simple wave or greeting could go a long way in diffusing any tension and preventing any "True Crime" scenarios from playing out. It's always better to err on the side of caution.
Unlocked WiFi Connection
While Nick's note may appear to be a genuine concern for others, there's a possibility that it was actually the work of a selfish neighbor looking to leech off of his Wi-Fi connection. It's not uncommon for people without internet access to try and mooch off their neighbors' connections.
But it's important to remember that using someone else's Wi-Fi without permission is not only inconsiderate, but it's also illegal. Regardless of Nick's true intentions, the note serves as a reminder for all internet users to protect their Wi-Fi networks with a strong password. This can prevent unauthorized access and safeguard personal information.
Part of living around other people involves having to deal with hearing them go about their daily life, but when you can hear a neighbor’s car alarm going off without end for an entire night, anyone would be justified in leaving a threatening note.
How they’re that heavy of a sleeper is beyond us, but hopefully, the note worked. But probably our favorite part of the entire note is the little award at the bottom of the piece of paper. They could have simply written that little strip of blue letters, and they still would have got the same point across.
Just Letting You Know
It must be nice for this note to be the first thing you see in the morning before getting in your car to go to work. Or at any time, for that matter. To be fair, any time of the day is probably an optimal time for two squirrels to start trying to have a baby.
So the morning is just as good as any time. Not only do you not want to imagine two animals mating in your car, but you start to seriously wonder whether the person who left this note was trying to be friendly or cheeky. But hey, apparently, it was important enough for them to leave a note!
It's a common experience to feel paranoid about whether or not you've locked your door before leaving your home. However, it seems that one neighbor may have taken their concern to the next level. A surprising note was left on the door of the apartment owner, indicating that the neighbor had noticed the door was left unlocked and open to potential intruders.
While the note may have been jarring to receive, it's clear that the neighbor had good intentions and was looking out for the safety of their community. The incident serves as a reminder to be vigilant about securing our homes and to appreciate the watchful eyes of our neighbors.
A Particular Set of Skills
Whoever wrote this note has certainly taken some cues from Liam Neeson’s convincing portrayal in the movie "Taken." They have clearly seen this film a few times too many and have learned this monologue by heart. Although to be fair, in the film, Neeson plays a father whose daughter was kidnapped and is trying to get her back.
Here the threats are directed at someone who can’t park, but nonetheless, if they don’t follow instructions, they will be found – and boxed in! We love it when someone takes an iconic line from a popular movie and flips it on its head. That's exactly what this person did!
My Anaconda Note
The thought of a 7-foot snake slithering around freely can be terrifying, so it's understandable why people might have been concerned after receiving the note from Nick. However, the irony of the situation lies in the fact that Nick claimed to have "accidentally" lost the snake, yet reassured others that there was nothing to worry about.
It's difficult to imagine how someone could lose such a large and potentially dangerous creature without being concerned about themselves. The note may have been intended as a prank designed to elicit a reaction from the recipient. However, it's also possible that Nick was being sincere and simply underestimated the severity of the situation.
The person who wrote this note has a way with words and also quite clearly a sense of humor. They put their complaints in extremely courteous words, making sure that the whole matter was as civilized as possible. Even though car alarms going off for no reason is one of the most aggravating things on the planet.
You can plainly see that Sir Tyrannosaurus Rex is a dinosaur of elegant breeding and habits; just check out the tophat and wine glass. Let's face it: when your second name is Rex (which literally means king in Latin), you know you are some kind of boss.
If you order 30 rolls of toilet paper on Amazon, it would only make sense that you would also take comfort in poetic vengeance via a cleverly written note. What we’re not sure of, though, is where exactly he or she put the note, considering the package was already taken.
Perhaps the note was placed inside the box of toilet paper rolls, nestled between the layers of soft paper. Or, it could have been attached to the outside of the package with a brightly colored ribbon, catching the eye of the delivery person as they made their way to the recipient's doorstep.
The Passive-Aggressive Smiley Face
The use of a smiley face at the end of a neighbor's note can be a relief when receiving a message that may have been frustrating or even confrontational. In this case, the writer of the note appears to be correct about the need for a permit to build a garage that encroaches on another's property.
It is understandable that the recipient may have been annoyed or embarrassed upon receiving this note, but the use of a smiley face may help ease any tension and prevent a potential conflict with the neighbors. Additionally, the note's welcoming tone implies that the neighbors are friendly and open to communication, which bodes well for a positive relationship moving forward.
Sarcasm is a beautiful thing when it comes to leaving a note, and this next note took it all the way. Instead of using harsh words or cursing whoever moved their bins to the park, they were super polite, but somehow, the message still came shining through. And boy, did it deliver.
Honestly, it would make anyone mad if someone moved their trash cans and kept them from being emptied. Just in case the recipient of the note got confused by all the kind words and the heart decoration, the signoff could not be clearer. Revenge is a dish best served sarcastically.
Stealing a Man's Cup
The act of stealing is always wrong, but stealing something as personal and important as a man's package protector takes it to a whole new level. This item is designed to provide comfort and support for a man's most sensitive area, making it an essential part of his daily routine.
To take it away is not only a violation of his property but also an invasion of his personal space. The writer of the note expresses their hope that the victim of this theft is skilled in a sport that involves physical retaliation, suggesting that they believe the thief deserves a taste of their own medicine.
Feeling Like a Star
Sarcasm can be a useful tool when dealing with a person who continuously obstructs the path that people use to walk on. While it may not solve the issue entirely, a well-timed sarcastic remark can convey your frustration and make the person aware of their actions.
On another note, when it comes to a warning note left on a car parked in a precarious location, the use of all caps suggests that the writer is not entirely optimistic about the car's safety. The writer may be implying they are not responsible for any potential damages resulting from the driver's reckless parking.
Have you seen the movie "Frozen?" Well, this is the real-life car version. When this car got a ticket for being parked there for too long, the owner wrote a note replying to the ticket explaining that his door is frozen shut and he can’t open the car to move it.
There are several ways to unfreeze your door and even things you can do to prevent your car door from freezing. Next time, try some WD40. Either that, or just buy a new car and move to a warmer part of the country. Those are your two options.
Hitting someone’s car and not leaving a note is definitely high on our jerk-o-meter. Accidents happen, but it is basic human decency to leave a note with your details and take responsibility for your mistakes. Whoever hit this car didn’t do that, but luckily there was someone around who saw the whole thing and took matters into their own hands.
Now, when the person calls their insurance company, they will at least have some basic information about who caused the damage. Unlike other notes on this list, this note wasn't written by the offended or the offender but by a third party, making this one completely unique.
Public Relationship Issues
The note suggests that the couple's relationship has deteriorated to the point where their arguments are loud enough for their neighbors to hear. The writer seems to be frustrated with the couple's behavior and implies that they need to work on their communication.
It's clear that the couple's issues are now affecting those around them, which is never a good sign. The thought of being the subject of gossip and scrutiny can be incredibly uncomfortable, and it's unfortunate that the situation has reached this point. Hopefully, the couple can find a way to work through their issues and bring some peace back to the building.
Leaving a rude and offensive note on someone’s windshield is never a good idea, especially when it involves making fun of someone’s disability. Comparing the driver’s parking to Stevie Wonder’s vision is not only insensitive but also inappropriate. The person who wrote this note could have simply expressed their frustration with the bad parking without resorting to such a hurtful comment.
Furthermore, assuming that the car belongs to someone with a visual impairment is not only presumptuous but also ignorant. Blind people can own cars and drive, too, with the aid of specialized equipment. We should be more considerate and respectful of others, regardless of their abilities or disabilities.
We’re All Human
The writer of this note seems to have a bit of a dry sense of humor. They’re politely but firmly telling the driver to be more considerate of others on the road, but with a touch of sarcasm. And while the use of “bloody sardines” may suggest a British origin, it’s also possible that the writer is simply a fan of British English or has spent time in the UK.
Regardless of their background, it is clear that they want drivers to remember that they’re sharing the road with other people who have their own schedules and destinations to reach.
Shoveling snow is brutal. You are out there toiling with fingers that gradually go numb, but, you have no choice if you want to have a proper parking space. Can you imagine the horror of coming home and seeing that somebody has assumed your parking spot as their own? That must be very disheartening.
We must say, the note that they left the parking spot stealer is not as ruthless as it could have been. They could have even called the tow truck. We hope that this driver has the heart not to try to pull this move off again.
Deserving of a Mean Glare
This note highlights the frustration of a kind-hearted individual who is trying to share free books with the community but is being undermined by one person's selfishness. But seriously, who would try to steal all of the books from a library?
The writer's appeal to fellow book lovers to keep an eye out for the golden sedan lady and give her disapproving glances is both humorous and effective in making the point that this behavior is not acceptable. The note also reminds us of the power of community and how small acts of kindness, like sharing free books, can bring people together and promote a love of reading.
It can be frustrating to pay for something and not get what you expect. While the note may come across as harsh, it's possible that the writer had received poor coffee from this barista multiple times before. It's also possible that the barista was new or in need of more training.
Whatever the reason, it's important for baristas and other service workers to strive to provide their customers with quality products and experiences. Hopefully, this note will serve as a wake-up call for the baristas and encourage them to improve their skills. Because there is nothing worse than having a bad coffee in the morning.
Number Two Emergency
Leaving a note was definitely the right thing to do, and it is good to see that this driver acknowledged their mistake. But, of course, it is important to remember that parking in a no-parking zone can still be a safety hazard and cause inconvenience for others. It is always better to find a proper parking spot or wait until one becomes available.
Hopefully, the driver was able to quickly finish their business and move the car to a more appropriate location. Let us all strive to be responsible drivers and considerate of others, even in urgent situations. And we will drink to that when we get home, that is.
Save The Squirrels
Although the woman's driving may have caused some damage to her mailbox, it's hard not to appreciate her compassion for wildlife. It's clear from her husband's note that she was trying to avoid hitting an animal, and that is definitely a worthy cause.
While it's unfortunate that her mailbox was destroyed and ruined in the process, it's reassuring to know that there are people out there who prioritize the well-being of animals over their own property. The note also shows that the woman has a supportive husband who is willing to take responsibility and make amends for the damage caused.
Without An Ulterior Motive!
It's refreshing to come across acts of kindness that are purely for the sake of being kind, and this note is a perfect example of that. The writer took the time to compliment the recipient without expecting anything in return, which is a rare and admirable trait in today's world.
It's heartwarming to imagine how much this simple note must have brightened the recipient's day, and it serves as a reminder that sometimes the smallest gestures can have the biggest impact. More people should take inspiration from this note and spread love and positivity wherever they go. The world could use a little more kindness.
The mention of a "monster" lurking in the attic definitely leaves us with a lot of questions. It's understandable that the workers had to make a quick exit after discovering the creature, as it could potentially be dangerous or unpredictable.
The note doesn't provide any additional information about the type of animal or creature in question, leaving us to wonder if it's a bat, raccoon, possum, bear, or even something more otherworldly like an attic goblin. It's definitely a situation that warrants further investigation, and we hope the workers will report back with more details soon. In the meantime, it's probably best to steer clear of that attic until the mystery is solved!
The Kindness of Strangers
It's heartwarming to hear about acts of kindness like the one Liz performed by paying for a stranger's parking ticket. Her generosity and compassion towards a random person not only helped them avoid a fine but also made their day a little brighter.
It's rare to come across such selfless individuals who are willing to go out of their way to help someone else without any expectations in return. Liz's act of kindness serves as an inspiration for others to spread kindness and positivity in their communities. It's entirely possible that the person whose ticket was paid forward this kindness to someone else, creating a chain of positive actions.
Facts are Facts
It's not entirely clear why the person who wrote this note decided to include a drawing of a dinosaur, but it does add a touch of humor to an otherwise straightforward announcement. Perhaps the person thought the cute dinosaur might soften the blow of the news that they are quitting.
Regardless of the reason, the note writer chose to stick to the facts and clearly state their intentions. The inclusion of the dinosaur drawing doesn't detract from the main message and may have even made it more memorable. In situations like these, it is important to be clear and direct.
It's a shocking and unsettling experience to be attacked by a drunk co-worker at work, and one would expect the attacker to be held accountable for their actions. However, in this particular case, that didn't happen, and it's understandable why the victim chose to call out their boss publicly.
It's not fair for the victim to continue to serve customers in an environment where their safety is compromised, especially if the attacker is still present. The victim's public call-out may have been the only way to draw attention to the situation and hold the employer accountable for their lack of action.
If You Gotta Eavesdrop…
Eavesdropping can be an uncomfortable and even unethical practice, but sometimes it's unavoidable. In this instance, the eavesdropper went above and beyond by leaving a note that not only acknowledged their actions but also put a smile on the person's face.
The eavesdropper's intentions were clearly good, as they wanted to give the person a vote of confidence during what seemed to be a difficult time for them. It takes courage to reach out to someone, even anonymously, and the eavesdropper deserves credit for their thoughtfulness. Leaving notes of encouragement or positivity for strangers can make a real difference in someone's day.
A Very Polite Printer
There’s always something so charming about personifying inanimate objects. Whoever wrote this note made the printer seem like the politest old little guy who just doesn’t have it in him to keep going. After all, a lot of printers out there are, in fact, old, and being replaced by younger, more effective printers.
How could you be mad at the printer for conking out after 14 full years of service? We approve of this kind of note and think maybe people should use this approach more often with electronics. Either that, or the printer actually typed out that note himself as some sort of end-of-life malfunction.
Anonymous Words of Wisdom
Sometimes, all you need is just a little pick-me-up. In this case, the pick me up came in the form of an anonymous note letting you know wherever you are in life is just fine. And to carry on the metaphor of the note. Life is like a puzzle. It is full of pieces that make up the entire picture, which ends up being beautiful.
We are all just kinda figuring it out as we go, and a little reminder you’re doing fine is always welcomed. People should leave more notes like this around. Either that, or they should leave some puzzles around for people to play. They are actually pretty fun to do.
Seems Uncalled for
There are two scenarios that usually occur when you see someone has left their car door open by accident. Scenario number one is that they are good samaritans, and they simply close the door. Scenario number two: they are not good samaritans, and they steal all your stuff.
This scenario here is definitely an outlier and one you do not come across every day. Why on earth would someone who sees an open car door leave a note that says...well...this? We can only imagine what goes on in the mind of this peculiar offender. If we were the driver, we would just go and buy another car.
Muffin or Doorknob?
If you have to lose a doorknob, you might as well lose it to a neighbor who is, as he says, trippin’ pretty hard. The fact he thought it was a muffin instead of a doorknob has us dying to know what did he do with the knob once he had it?!
Try to eat it?! Realize immediately it wasn’t actually a muffin?! We have questions, and we must have answers! One thing is for sure: if you try to eat a doorknob, then you will probably chip at least some of your teeth if you do not break them completely.
Sweet or Creepy
We’ll leave it up to you guys to decide if this “love note” from the guy in the blue shirt in class is very sweet or just plain creepy. Ultimately, we guess he’s trying to compliment the class hottie. In case the girl was confused about who wrote the note, it was from the guy in the blue shirt. No name is required.
That being said, he might have slightly missed the mark with this one. Maybe going with “You look cute” or “Would you like to grab a drink sometime?” would have been slightly more appropriate. But we could imagine some recipients blushing at this cheeky pickup line.
Leaving a note after clogging a toilet may seem like an embarrassing and awkward task, but it's the right thing to do. Whoever left the note in this particular instance showed consideration and thoughtfulness by updating others before they had the chance to discover the damage for themselves.
The note also suggests that the person may have been feeling unwell, which is a legitimate reason for the incident. While the assumption that the next person to enter the bathroom would be interested in knowing how they were feeling afterward may be naive, the note still serves a practical purpose. It's a small act of responsibility that can save others from a potentially unpleasant situation.
Called out HARD!
This one is supremely awkward. Yes, some people are married to noticeably attractive people. No, this does not give others the right to focus solely on them and completely ignore their significant other or friends or whoever else may be sitting with them. We want couple equality on all fronts, people.
It’s pretty likely this waiter didn’t get a good tip, and if they have any feelings whatsoever, they’ll probably be pretty embarrassed to discover why. We think this is a pretty legitimate reason not to give the tip. We don't care if the food and service were incredible. Obviously, the latter wasn't.
A Secret Message
A standing ovation is here for whoever put this much effort just to secretly show the world what they truly feel about their boss. It really is a sort of "blink, and you'll miss it" situation. The creativity is very impressive, and they really got the ticket spot on.
The beauty in this one is that the boss might actually never find out, but he will need to catch on eventually after the employee no longer shows up to work since their week's notice is over. We want to know just how long it took their boss to find that note!
Stick it to the Man
If you hold your employees to a certain level of compliance, then it’s only fair that you follow your own rules as well. After all, the classic phrase "do as I say, not as I do" exists for a reason, you know. As a boss, you should set an example, and the hope is that your employees work according to that.
Well, this boss definitely did not set the right example, and well, this is what happens. Workers lose patience, and then the employer ends up with a closed store when it was supposed to be open and an angry note on the door for everyone to see. This is not how you do it.
A little sarcasm goes a long way. It can push the recipient in the right direction when it comes to understanding your point. But you don't want to go overboard with the sarcasm. It’s not just your simple request not to park too far out into the road. It feels more like a “did you really do that?” kinda thing.
On some levels, this stings more than just a polite note. It seems like the person who wrote it feels pretty justified in their complaint, so in a moment of anger, they wrote a passive-aggressive note. We can’t really blame them and we want to see more of this kind of language on notes in the future.
The use of Post-It notes with the word "really?" printed on them has sparked some curiosity as to their origin. Did they find them pre-printed or did they create them themselves? Either way, it's clear that the dishes have been a recurring issue in the household, leading to the use of such notes. Perhaps the notes serve as a humorous yet effective reminder to those who leave their dishes behind.
It's understandable why the note-taker would feel the need to use them. After all, the lack of cleanliness can become frustrating, and a reminder can be helpful. In the end, it's important to address issues like these in a calm and respectful manner, using creative solutions like these notes if necessary.
Grumpy Cat's Disapproval
It’s hard not to be charmed by the cute face of Grumpy Cat! After all, we love cats as much as the next person. They're furry, calming, mysterious, and bring a lot of charm and warmth to any household. The important thing here is not to focus on that and miss the message completely.
Of course, Grumpy Cat is grumpy because he is calling someone out for snagging someone else’s parking spot. Big no-no. If Grumpy Cat says it is so, then it must be so. We hope whoever received this message got that point and immediately moved the vehicle. For the sake of the cat, at least.
A Well Deserved Goodbye
The passive-aggressiveness is just oozing from every angle of this letter. There is nothing apologetic about this note, and from the sounds of it, rightfully so. It's just downright direct, takes no prisoners and gets down to brass tacks - just the way we like it (as innocent bystanders, that is).
By reading this letter and a few others on this list, it is safe to say that we think it’s time employers wake up and start treating their employees like human beings. The better the work conditions, the less likely employers will be to receive resignation letters like this one, calling them out on their BS.
Whoever wrote this original note wasn’t politely asking their co-workers not to touch their mug. As far as they’re concerned, it’s a given that no one touches the reindeer mug! After all, the reindeer mug is sacred. It was forged in the mines of Lapland and is only ever drunk out of by Santa Claus himself and this employee.
Clearly, this assumption is just begging for the mug to be touched — and touched it was. Luckily for the guy who wrote the note, it seems that it was only touched, nothing more. But maybe that makes it worse? You'll have to ask him. And hopefully, coffee time isn't too awkward.
A Real Funny Guy
To be honest, we are not sure if this practical joke is some type of revenge thing or rather a gag between friends or family members. What we do know is that momentary feeling when you see a piece of paper on your windshield, and your heart drops into your stomach, is not fun, to say the least.
I guess we’ll never know what the receiver did to deserve this prank, but we imagine it probably did the trick. And we will also never know how the receiver reacted to the fake ticket. What we do know is that they took a photo of it and posted it on social media. So they didn't ignore it, that's for sure.
Sorry Not Sorry
The old adage "what goes around comes around" seems to have played out in a recent employment situation. The employer in question appeared to lack empathy when their employee required time off for personal reasons. In response, the employee delivered a scathing and sarcastic "apology," suggesting that their need for time off was not taken seriously by their employer.
While this may seem harsh, it's possible that the employer's lack of understanding was equally unforgivable. Perhaps this situation will serve as a lesson to the employer, reminding them to treat their employees with compassion and respect, especially in difficult circumstances. In the end, it's crucial for companies to prioritize the well-being of their staff, recognizing that happy employees make for a productive and successful workplace.
It’s a SPOON SPOON!
This one feels supremely justified and quite a creative solution. Nobody wants all kinds of different hands touching the object that’s going into their mouth. We think it’s a great idea and applaud whoever thought of it. But also, we can’t let go of the fact that they seriously missed the opportunity to say SPOON SPOON!
Now, the more we think of it, the more we begin to realize that the one behind this must be Mr. Seinfield. This followed George's double-dipping incident, and he decided to put an end to it. Not sure what we are talking about? Seinfeld Season 4 Episode 19.
Creativity Passive Aggressive
When two or more people live together, and it doesn't matter if they are blood-related or not, there are going to be arguments. We’re fairly certain one of the biggest disputes between people who share the same four walls is dishes. Dirty dishes.
Leaving a note is the ultimate passive-aggressive move, but honestly, if you’re able to add a little bit of creativity to it, then maybe it’s not so bad. We’d like to assume this note came after multiple times the recipient of the note was asked to start doing the dishes more often. A last resort, if you will.
A Sign from Prime
The holiest keeper of cars, Optimus Prime, is the perfect way to let someone know their parking is a complete mess without making the note too blunt. Whoever parked that car may never know who actually wrote the note, but they will know their parking job sucked, and the note writer definitely invested a bit of time in that tiny caricature at the bottom.
We have one question. What if the car driver who terribly parked the car was born after the year 2000 and has no idea who Optimus Prime is? Is there a modern equivalent we can refer them to?
Applause for the Attempt
This solid attempt to get out of jury duty deserves a round of applause. We couldn't have thought of a more creative, honest, and BOOM in-your-face way of doing this. In order to get out of your civic duty, you might have to prove you’re just insane enough not to be able to judge someone else.
Implying that anyone who enters the court will get what’s coming to them because you’ve deemed yourself a vigilante for justice is, quite frankly, genius. Could you imagine a criminal defendant knowing that some lunatic like this is going to determine their future? God help us (of them).
With a Little Help From Carly
If you have to call someone else for blocking your driveway, it seems that maybe it would soften the blow to quote a popular tune. The person who blocked the driveway probably doesn't deserve something this creative, but they got it anyway.
When you get the urge to quote, you just do, and there's nothing that can stop you, even if someone is stopping you from getting out of your driveway. What to spice things up even a little more? How about adding a barcode to scan leading to the song on YouTube. That way, there will be no room for misunderstanding.
Short and Sweet
Some people don’t like to mince words. Keeping things short, sweet, and to the point is their style. They don't believe in giving explanations and don't leave too much room for imagination. When they have something to say, they just say it. No matter how few words they have to use.
There’s absolutely no question here that whoever wrote this note is one of those people or maybe even the king of those people. Is the message clear? Absolutely. Is it missing some sort of emotional touch? Yes. Most definitely. But we’re not here to judge. To each his own, ya know?
You leave the house in the morning, getting ready for another day in the office, overwhelmed by the affection sharing you witnessed the previous night. And then this. We can only imagine the disappointment one might feel after they get a written love note left on their car, only to realize it wasn't actually meant for them. Ouch.
Now, in all fairness, the person who wrote the note can’t let the car owner go on thinking the love note was, in fact, intended for them. That being said, we can’t help but feel a little bit bad for the unintended recipient.
No Spoilers Please
There are few shows where each and every episode is truly epic and cannot be missed. "Game Of Thrones" happens to be one of them. Whether you were a fan or not, during the GOT heyday, you couldn’t walk around and not hear everything that happened in the previous episode.
If you were super into the show (and if you weren't, we find it very hard to believe) but happened to have missed the last episode, chances are, someone was gonna spoil it. This person really thought ahead and wanted to make sure no one spoils the show for them. We have to applaud the foresight.
What Makes You So Special?
Okay, we have to ask the obvious question before delving into this one. Does the person who drew this always walk around with chalk in their bag, or did he specifically wait for the nearest Walmart to open their gates? Phew, I'm glad we got that off our chests.
We’ve all encountered people who seem to think they deserve everything ( and that parking spots await them). This type of person thinks they can park wherever they please, regardless of parking lines. Well, this person was ready with the chalk to call them out on just how douchey their behavior really is.
A Game by Sadists
This is, without a doubt, one of the more vicious notes we’ve seen, and in our opinion, only the most intelligent people could have thought of this. It’s fairly well known that traffic cops, parking police, and meter maids are universally hated no matter where you live in the world. (We’d like to point out that these people are only doing their job, and we fully support that).
But nobody, and we mean nobody, likes getting a ticket. So, forcing the traffic warden to search for the correct parking ticket that gives you permission to park there is just evil. But also, it is genius.
Moving on to a Better Place
Dang, people are starting to get really creative with their quitting notices. It is pretty creative to go in the direction of a Hallmark "I’m sorry for your loss" card. As if this person would effectively draw the comparison between losing a loved one and handing in one's notice.
Clearly, Alex saw himself as a keystone member of the crew whose absence would be taken very hard. At least he was kind enough to give them a two-week notice. We love it when employees act ironically sad when they are, in reality, just so excited to run out of the door.
Real Life Office Space
So in case anyone here did not get the message, the “that would be grrreaaat” at the end is from the classic movie "Office Space," repeatedly spoken by the unbearable boss Lumberg. We love that cult classic flicks, which are based around the workplace. So, it makes perfect sense to use that language in everyday notes, especially in an office setting.
This guy clearly cares very little about this job since he put exactly zero effort into spelling or grammar. Props for the reference, though; we hope his boss appreciated it. We just love how lackadaisical the message is for the boss. We would potentially expect something a bit more formal to throw in the professional towel.
It is always awkward to put in your two-week notice at any job. And yeah, maybe it is a little bit unprofessional to put that notice on a note….of lined paper clearly taken from a notebook….with a stick figure drawing announcing you are quitting. We'd say that email is the bare minimum format in this day and age.
But honestly, mad points for creativity. It is kinda savage if you think about it. She did not even give a two-week notice; she just wrote: “Effective immediately.” We guess it's true when they say when you've got to go, you have got to go. And that can also apply when jobs are concerned.
3 Signs for Cat Safety
Everyone knows cats are sneaky little rascals, and nothing is more enticing to them than an area they are not allowed to go to. In this case, the great outdoors. After all, they did originally hail from the jungle, so it only makes sense that they like to go out and about, from time to time.
One sign seemingly was not enough to prevent these cunning critters from making a run for it the second the door opened. Actually, it seems like two signs might also have not been enough. You know what they say: the third time is the charm.
Too Close for Comfort
Parking can be a very sensitive subject. Like, in some cities, driving around searching for parking can take well over half an hour! So yeah, we get why people will take extreme measures in order to reserve a parking spot. It is the holy grail, as far as drivers are concerned.
If you’re lucky enough to have a designated parking spot, there is no way you are letting someone else snag it for free! This potential Vaseline bandit thinks it's totally fine to threaten whoever thinks they can just swoop in and take their spot, and honestly, we can't judge them.
A Horse Marks His Territory
Some might see him as a villain. Others might see him as the hero we never knew we needed. Tic Tac sees a car and just gets the urge. Maybe he thinks it’s funny. Maybe he's just a horse and needs to urinate in a prime location. Whatever the case, he did his business, and his own was immediately guilty.
Maybe Tic Tac is just a practical joker. Either way, we know one thing here is undeniable. Tic Tac is an absolutely hilarious name for a horse, and it makes the note that much funnier. We assume that Tic Tac is completely white and his pee has a mint-fresh smell and taste to it. We can only hope.
Always the Wise Guy
Okay, someone here saw an opportunity they simply could not refuse, and it started a whole trend. Yeah, it is absolutely better to get into a public restroom and find a clean toilet bowl. It just sets the tone in the perfect way for whatever you're about to do in there.
But someone just had to be the wise guy and mark that they remembered to flush. Since it is undeniably funny, everyone else decided to get on board with the dad joke. Now, if the bowl is not clean, you will at least get a good chuckle out of it.
They’re Sometimes Food, People
There are a lot of businesses that have found a little pick-me-up like a candy dish to be a really handy way to keep morale higher. Maybe an employee has been staring at their screen for a few hours and needs to take a little trip to the candy dish. Far too often, however, the candy dish is empty because a lot of people love candy. And that shouldn’t really come as a surprise – people like candy; wow, what a revelation.
But it’s certainly true that some people like candy a little too much. Of course, this depends on how big of a business it is. If there are a hundred people there, we bet that this candy dish will be emptied right away, no matter how big or full it is. If it’s only a dozen people, that’s a little worse.
We’re Amazed This Note Had to Be Written
Public bathrooms can be a dangerous place when it comes to people who don’t have much of a brain in their skulls. What other thought could go through your head if you find a door to a public bathroom that is locked? What other option than “there is someone already using this stall” could there possibly be? Using a public bathroom isn’t the most difficult or dangerous thing in the world, but there are some people who can struggle in such an environment.
They’re used to things being a little more private and personal. So when someone comes and tries to rattle open the door, they, in turn, get rattled. Maybe the other person was deep in thought or something like that, but it still shouldn’t be done.
Like From a Detective Show
Writing a note on some stationary and then tearing the piece off might seem like you haven’t left any evidence, but as we can just barely see, the imprint goes through to the next page. It’s tough to read this one – it says, “If you were a pineapple...you’d be a pineapple.” After those words, there’s a drawing of a pineapple with sunglasses on and a couple of exes and ohs.
It's probably not as fun to find as a private gumshoe finding where they were taking the money, but it's still kinda fun. It’s an old line, but if you’ve never heard it before, it can still make you laugh. Most likely, this is just a sweet note from one person to another, like so many other notes they’ve passed.
Not So Much an Announcement as a Notification
It seems the neighbors have all seen enough and decided they would leave a note. Quite a fancy note, too. Not everybody is an expert at two-way glass, and it seems that the person who installed this one wasn’t paying attention to which side of it was supposed to go in. The people who used the bathroom didn’t notice since they couldn’t see out – it was just frosted glass to them. No problem.
But the people who could see in figured it would be best to let them know there was, indeed, a problem. How much did they see before they figured they needed to leave a message? This kind of note is embarrassing, but it’s like being told your fly is down – you’d rather be told than find out yourself after getting home from the opera.
Don’t Leave This Kind of Thing Out in the Open
We’ll get this out of the way quickly – if you’re staying in a hotel room and you’re there for a couple of days, don’t leave something really nice and fancy, and that could be hocked for a quick stack of cash out where the housekeeper could see it. We’re not saying it WILL be stolen or that all housekeepers are thieves, but it is certainly leaving things up to chance when you could at least put your 3DS in your bag.
That aside, that’s a super fun note to receive from the housekeeper, as long as the housekeeper did actually leave it. There’s always a chance every single one of these notes is fake, but we hope this one is real. It’s pretty great.
Things That Go Bang in the Night
People living in apartments become accustomed to a lot of things. The sounds of people walking over your head, people running down the hallway, smells that might be coming in from balconies, or other things like that. They can be dealt with mostly, but if you can’t sleep over a period of nights, they get harder and harder to stomach.
A really loud, rhythmic knocking sound while you're trying to sleep – and it’s very likely right above your head – is one of the worst, and everybody knows exactly why it’s happening, too. Plenty of people have written or received these notes, begging for a little bit of peace and quiet. It can be a touchy subject. And not just because of all the bodily contact that is happening.
And a Handy Gift at the Same Time
A note AND a present, how nice. But this note isn’t a very nice one, even if all of us have wanted to leave the same kind of note a bunch of times. There are some places where people just consider the lines marking the spots to be more like guidelines than rules.
Apparently, the person who received this note was taking up a full three spots, and that was too much for this person to stomach. They wanted to make sure the person who had parked was aware that he (and odds are it’s a he, for some reason) shouldn’t have any kids. There was also an aid to help facilitate not having any kids; how nice.
The Book was Better
Those who read “The Hobbit” before seeing the movies were in for a wild ride – a whole lot had been changed, stretched out, and added to make it three movies long when it really didn’t need to be. We could see two movies, maybe, but it would have excelled at a shorter, simpler story that didn’t try to bring all the amazement of the “Lord of the Rings” movies back.
This note was left inside a copy of “The Hobbit” that someone picked up at the store, and it was a little bit of a warning. The book won’t be the same as the new trilogy, no, but you’ll still be able to get something out of it. You might even be able to get more out of it than you thought.
The Kind of Note an LT Would Write
Ten cents isn’t a lot, but if you’re just looking for a little bit of sugar on a long day of working in the barracks, that might be enough to push you over the edge. You’ll have to go rooting around for an extra ten cents, and who carries dimes around these days? Dollars, sure, but that’s about the minimum unless you know you’ll have to feed quarters into something.
Dimes aren’t the most likely thing to carry around with you. This well-written and forthright note tells us everything we need to know and everything that should be done to fix the situation. This could have been any member of the armed forces, but it certainly seems like the kind of thing that an officer would write.
A Time of Sticking Together
The last couple of years presented lots of opportunities for people to help out their fellow man, and we’re happy to say that at least one person working at Domino’s did their best to uplift. If you’re sick or you’ve had a long day, ordering a little bit of pizza is a nice pick-me-up. If you’re suffering from a bad illness, it can mean a miserable day or a much, much better one.
This person ordered some pies, leaving instructions to put them on the front porch due to a bad illness in the house (you can probably guess which one), and the person delivering the pizzas left a sympathy note. A very nice gesture, even better since the person would have been happy just getting the food he or she ordered.
Telling You a Lot About the Room
Why yes, this is a very strange note to find, but the place it was found makes all the difference. It was found by a woman in a hotel room, inside her robe. Yeah, it's starting to make a little more sense now, isn’t it? If the robe HAD been washed, the note would have been removed or ruined in the wash. But the note was there, meaning that the robe hadn’t been cleaned at all.
The person before the woman who found the note (or maybe multiple people before) did everybody a solid by pointing out just how much this hotel washes things. The answer, just like most hotels, is not enough. Even if it’s something that would be right next to a person’s naked butt, it might not get washed.
Candy Can Stay Over Anytime
Leaving aside the fact that calling a guy Candy must at least have a fun story attached to it, this is a wonderful note to receive. The guy was too drunk to go home, so he slept on the couch. In the morning, he woke up and went on a cleaning spree. He washed the dishes and put them away, cleaned the stove (a messier job than some people think, depending on the kind of stove), and even took out the trash. What a mensch.
Not only those three things, but he also drew a little picture of the people who lived there. It’s a pretty good picture, too. The squirrel is helpfully labeled, even though it looks exactly like a squirrel. All in all, the right kind of party guest.
Love Notes for the Modern Era
Passing love notes? In class? Well, it’s something that’s been done ever since the time of classrooms and notes and the idea of passing things down a line of people. Yet everything must change with the times – for instance, this note isn’t talking about the eyes of a person or their hair or how big their muscles are, but because they hope the other person will smile looking down at his or her phone.
That’s how you know that the people who are involved with this note are a little younger than the average since they had to include the phone thing in there. The smartphone really has changed the whole world. Also, the person who wrote the note misspelled “reason,” so that’s another good indicator.
Succeeding in Only Raising More Suspicion
Yeah, that’s the kind of note that will make sure your garbage can gets investigated. Definitely not your wife, you say? Well, then, I guess you won’t mind if we open it up to make sure. People who live in places that have a lot of hunting will see this a lot, but that just means it’s the perfect way to dispose of someone that you’ve stopped being fond of.
But are garbage collectors really going to open every bag of body parts they find just to make sure they have hooves or antlers or things like that? No, of course not. They’re going to hope that the sign isn’t lying and get on with their day. Even if it is lying, it’s not like it will be hard to find the person responsible. He left a note, for Pete’s sake.
Everything Is Grosser Than You Imagine
Well, that’s okay; we didn’t want to have to eat lunch anyway. And now that we don’t have an appetite left, we don’t have to! Perfect. Yeah, there are a lot of restaurants or other places of business that should probably do a better job of cleaning certain things. Things like Parmesan cheese shakers, which you have to use like a salt shaker.
There was a girl licking one of them, which means all the cheese that comes out has kind of been licked by her. That’s a thrilling thought. It might be best just to take a big bucket of sanitizer and wash everything in the entire vicinity. All the tables and chairs and the floor. Might as well get the walls and ceiling while you’re at it. Who knows where that kid could have been licking?
Bringing the Bike Back
Bikes are a great thing to have while you’re in college. They don’t take up much space, they don’t need to be gassed up like cars, they’re way cheaper, and you can lock them up to keep them from being stolen. Well, normally, anyway. They can be whisked away by a thief who needs a ride of his or her own. Usually, they don’t come back, but in this instance, the right kind of thief was there.
This person blacked out and needed to get home, but he not only decided to bring the bike back to where he had gotten it but also left an apology letter that gave an explanation. We’re guessing this guy didn’t really want to steal a bike, but it was important.
Pretty Good Handwriting for Someone Like That
This person is hungover AND might still be a little drunk, but is able to write a note that not only has better handwriting than we could do on our best day but very few spelling or grammatical errors. How long did this person take? Was it word by word? Did he write a single letter before taking a break? Maybe this letter was written long ago and then was saved until the right time. Or maybe it was used a number of times.
Most people don’t really care that much if the “Pizza Deliverer Person” sees them in a sorry state – it’s not like it will be the first time that they’ve seen someone like that. But this person still had a little bit of self-respect left even after a wild night.
A Critical Part of the Process
Lots and lots of people love Lego, but we guess that not everybody understands the basics of the brand. You have to put them together yourself. That’s how they go. We don’t think there’s a single Lego set in the entire world that comes pre-assembled. You have to put the little pieces together, for Pete’s sake. They might only be two or three pieces, but you have to do it.
This person thought he or she was getting some kind of toy that was built out of little blocks and such, and they wouldn’t have to put it together. That’s the best part about them! We wouldn’t be surprised if more people enjoyed actually building the sets more than playing with them after they were built. Plus, you can build other stuff out of them!
No Choice but to Turn the Volume Down
Night after night after night the same repetitive sounds will make a person go crazy, and that’s not a joke. Living near the wrong people can make your life hell until you find some way to fix it, and for many people, the best way to do that is a note like this one. Actually, this one goes quite a bit harder than a lot of other notes.
It insults the person responsible, it makes fun of their music choices, and it insinuates that they’re breaking the law. Now, these aren’t the kinds of things that you want to do right out of the gate, but you have to admit, this kind of note would likely get you to worry a little more about how the neighbors think of you.
