Happy Thanksgiving

I found this note on day in my classroom after the kids left. I was initially sad to hear that somebody had a rough morning and then i realized that some of the kids hadn’t been on task the entire time during the period dedicated to silent sustained reading.

A Retirement Home Is Not a Nightclub

I live in a retirement home that also has students living here too (I’m one of the students). One night some students were playing music in the student floor lounge and some guy who was staying in one of the bed and breakfast rooms came in and yelled at them. Then he left this note.

Feal the Need

I found this in the laundry room of my apartment complex. Apparently someone felt passionate about not having their clothes placed on a “dirty-ass washer.” I like that whoever did the horrible deed posted an anonymous reply below.

I’m The Boss Bitch

This was slipped under our door on the last day of finals at Heidelberg College. We have no idea who it is from, who wrote the reply, or why it was given to us. I especially like how they wish the “loud music playing man” a great summer.

The Honesty’s Too Much

Found this at the local credit union on the table where you fill out your deposit slips. The best part? At the moment I found it, the bank’s Muzak started playing “Sometimes When We Touch”! How appropriate.

Cover Girl

I found this item in a drawer of a sewing machine from the 1970s. I bought the machine for fifteen dollars at a fundraising garage sale for Boy Scouts about four years ago. It is written on the back of a blank Allstate Insurance Inspection Report. I still wonder if she ratted the cheater out.

Can Opener

I lived at an apartment building with a less-than-ideal parking situation when I found this, so these kinds of notes were common. But, I especially liked the imagery in this one.

And You Said MY Grammar Was Bad

To the best of my knowledge, this is a letter written from a parent to a child. The irony of it all makes my head go silly inside.
