I Know When I’m Wrong


FOUND by Joe Briggs in a dormitory on the campus of the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh, Oshkosh, Wisconsin

When I was in college, I used to clean dorm rooms in the summer to make ends meet. Other student workers and I would wake up much earlier than we were accustomed to and dread that first week of the summer. We would enter rooms, black garbage bags in hand, and encounter freezers with exploded Colt 45′s and used condoms glued to mattresses. But, sometimes what we found would stop us in our tracks. I found this note attached to a bouquet of flowers that was in the garbage. I wanted to take the bouquet and the note, but I don’t think our boss would’ve liked that. I met my wife while working this job and our inside joke, whenever we have a fight, is for me to end the tiff by saying, “I’m sorry I called you high maintenance.”

Penn Sucks


FOUND by Stefanie Allen in Baltimore, Maryland

I moved into a new apartment in Baltimore and started drinking early with some friends to celebrate. Needless to say, I forgot I parked my car in a small alleyway to move my things in through the backdoor. I woke up the next morning with this note on my car, which has a Pennsylvania license tag, and realized that the trash men indeed could not possibly get through, but rather laid on the horn for an hour or so.
