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.”

let me help you out


from an anonymous submitter in new york city, who explains: “i was out of the country for a week, and when I came back, I found this gem taped to the bathroom mirror….even though I’ve since moved out of the apartment (after she accused me of peeing on the bathroom floor and into the non-existent bathroom air freshener, and I decided I couldn’t take any more of her), she’s still around (we go to the same school), so I don’t want her to accidentally stumble upon this and cause me more hell.”

to put it as politely as possible


from andrea in astoria, queens, who promises more to come.

(yeah, it’s hard to read, but worth squinting over, i promise.)

UPDATE: andrea has posted a transcription of the note here.

i spit in mine

thanks to rachel for bringing to light another key battleground for office passive-aggressives: the thermostat.
