Writes our submitter, “Bob L,” in California: “I posted a negative review on Yelp of a local business. Next time I came in, I saw this note posted on their bulletin board. Glad I didn’t use my real name!” related: “The bathrooms are the best thing about this restaurant.” extra credit: Portlandia “Bad Yelp review” [...]
“Understand,” writes Beck in Philadelphia, “I love this city. Filth and all.” But he also had to give props to this guerilla PSA — done in the style of the Philly Tourism Board’s “with love” ad campaign — adding, ”I regret not actually being able to photograph all the trash that really was on the ground.” related: People [...]
Bill says he’s lived in the same building in Shenzhen, China for four years, “and the place still cracks me up, daily.” The latest from his building’s noticeboard: related: Beware of falling hairballs
This one was spotted by Liz from British Columbia in what she describes as “a popular drinkin’ park often featuring empty Colt.45 cans.” related: What kind of person steals flowers from a grave?
I’m normally not the littering type, but something about this mess of bullet points makes me want to upend the nearest trash can and just go absolutely apeshit. (And how was your holiday, boss?) related: Clues that you might be trapped in a soul-sucking job
Thanks to the magic of analytics, I’m able to see the unique search queries that bring people to this little website — and unique they are! (For many people, Google seems to serve much the same function as a Magic 8 ball.) If you’re feeling voyeuristic, take a peek below at some of the more, shall [...]
Here it is: a look back at your favorite notes of 2012, from heartbroken kids to self-righteous vegans and everywhere in between. (Just click on any of the notes to see the original post, with context.) But first — drumroll please — our two candidates vying for the title of 2012 douchecanoe of the year! Which note [...]
While at his parents’ house in Indiana for Christmas, Jay says his mother passed this card around to everyone, saying, “Can you believe this?!” The awkward part: Terry (not that Terry) is their next-door neighbor. related: Happy Holidays! So glad we’re not together!
The most extreme case of ice hoarding I’ve seen comes to us from an office in Fort Washington, Pennsylvania: Personally, I think Nicolette’s “Aunt Anny” in California is onto something. (Assuming, of course, that people have the recipe.) related: Four approaches to ice cube maintenance
So far this year, we’ve gotten no missing Baby Jesus reports. (Yet.) However, it looks like it’s still hard out there for a candy cane. Just ask Anderson in Huntsville, Alabama: Gina in New Philadelphia, Ohio: or Rod in Jenison, Michigan: related: The circle of Hell Dante forget to mention
While walking down a quiet street in Leicester, Tom says, he saw this “ANGRY CAPITALISED note” in the window of a house. “Amid so many unanswered questions,” Tom says, “one thing is for sure: Mike has a window and he ain’t afraid to use it.” related: Desperately Seeking Closure
Apparently, when is comes to judging the average person’s ability to correctly assess, “Should I urinate here?” you really can’t be too careful. Especially, it seems, in Chicago — as witnessed by both Julie and Whitney. (Although, “To be fair,” Whitney adds, “the entire city seems to be fair game for public urination.”) related: What is it [...]
This could be a hint that your former housemates have grown weary of you treating their home as a rent-free walk-in closet. (Admits our submitter: “If I’d had my way, it’d be on the sidewalk with a ‘free stuff’ sign.) related: P.S. Go to Hell
While admiring the neighborhood’s holiday decorations with his family, our submitter in Denver came across this “bokeh of Christmas joy.” Noticing a folder of photocopied flyers labeled “please take one,” our submitter did so, and while his daughter stared in awe at the abundance of LED-powered holiday cheer, he gawped at the Grinch-like screed that [...]
I’ve spent most of the day curled up reading John Irving’s latest, In One Person (“a compelling novel of desire, secrecy, and sexual identity.”) And yet, since stumbling across this novella — from an office fridge in Maryland — I’ve had but one phrase echoing in my head: ”We are not so unalike, [you and I]. I, too, have a [...]
The office break room: where everything is somebody else’s responsibility. related: I am clearly too busy writing notes, so could somebody less important than me take care of this?
The porcelain throne, it seems, serves as a muse to many…with predictably crappy results. And the response: related: Couples for the Crapper
