Are there any funny passive-aggressive notes up in your office?

“DID YOU REMEMBER TO CLOSE THE REFRIGERATOR DOOR!?” Is posted in on every single wall because a coworker of mine would leave the sliding door to our fridge open after every time he used it. After the 3rd time of it happening overnight with about $10k of antibodies inside I decided to put a sign on just about every surface. It makes me laugh when I see it now because I’m reminded of how dumb he can be. He asked me once if he could take them down and got a resounding “NO.”

iarebridezilla:  Ours aren’t really passive aggressive, but they’re stupid common sense things from HR. And they are both bathroom related! 

One is something about singing happy birthday twice while you wash your hands else they’re not clean enough. I have never once seen anyone stand there that long because I have tried it.

The second is about making sure the toilet is flushed. Ummm… isn’t that just standard operating procedure?? It is in MY book!!

You should take down the coffee note and see all hell break loose!!! Bwahahaha!

It’s not currently posted, as it was not allowed to stay for long, but my favorite was when someone leaned a crutch against the wall and posted a note on it that said “Use this when management cuts your legs out from under you.” It was only allowed to stay up for less than a day. But… just… wow. I mean, WOW.

someone at my old work used to send out mass emails about the fridge that was near her desk on our floor.  her subject line was always “the frig?” and i would just die laughing every time

also, our cafeteria staff would send out mass emails when things went missing.  my fav was all the winnie-the-pooh emails i got after they sent out one about missing honey. 

i seriously miss office work some days hahaha

We have little notes that management posts, but people always write in little replies until the note disappears. Recently, management posted a paper with some “suggestions” of extra work we should try to fit into our day, but any of the workers knows we’re SUPER short-staffed right now, so someone wrote, “Really, suggestions?! Hire more people!!” on the note. It then disappeared.
