let’s talk washing up shall we

any note that starts with “let’s” i kind of immediately love. this one was forwarded by lindsay in watford, england:

which one of these is not like the other?

along with the mad bomber series, i’d say this note is one for the hall of fame. there are so many amazing elements here i can’t even pick a favorite.



welcome to the office


explains jdb: “the blue note went up first, then we hired a bunch of contractors. the red note went up shortly after that.”

danke [for the sarcasm]!!!

tim found this note in the basement storeroom of an apartment building in kiel, germany:


tim’s rough translation:

THANKS for filling [up the storeroom]!!!
i was able to get to the meter just SUPER!!!
tenant 5/1 [fifth floor, first apartment]

[hand written at the bottom] many thanks from me too, tenant 5/2

lydia decided to add a few post-its of her own.


(the large signs on the oven and the microwave were already there.)

please ladies please

maybe it’s the manic use of ellipses and exclamation points, but this note makes me very uncomfortable.


says erica in new york city, “as bad as it can get in the ladies’, i’ve been told the men’s bathroom is even worse.”

stay home!!!
