FOUND by LB in a Poundstretcher store, Hertford, England
Found this on the floor of the shop where I work last week, folded with only the corner that reads “£70 tips missing” visible. It appears to be two sides worth of reasons why somebody is about to get fired, (definitely a different workplace to mine by the practices described – one of the nearby pubs?)
FOUND by Derrick Nelson in the Reading Room of the New York Public Library, Manhattan, New York City, New York
Found this casually discarded by itself on top of a bookshelf in the main reading room of the New York Public Library (the Stephen A. Schwarzman building to be specific). I am torn between thinking it’s sad that a mom couldn’t say this in person to her kids, it sounds like she abandoned them, and what kind of mom uses the formal expression, “thank you in advance for your understanding”? At the same time I think how cool it must be to have a mom that leaves you secret messages hidden throughout NYC.
A group of friends and I were on our way to a “Jungle Fever” themed dance when we decided to ditch the dance for some Mexican food. As we were walking to the restaurant I came across this piece of paper on the floor. I’ve kept it in my dorm since.
