@littlemisst08:  OMG that happens to me all the time! My pants are always wet in one spot from leaning against the bathroom counter when washing my hands :-/

@littlemisst08:  Oh ew! I have the same thing here!  Extra fun, because the countertop is at the exact height of my crotch – looks like I didn’t make it to the toilet fast enough 🙁

Dear co worker from hell,

It would be much appriciated if instead of blaming me for something that you did… TO MY SUPERVISOR, you went ahead and ate a big steaming bowl of s*it.

@littlemisst08:  Guess it happens everywhere.  If someone’s around, I’ve stopped being subtle…I just bitch loudly, and wonder aloud what people’s houses must look like.

Oh, and the refrigerator issue.  I also have no problem cleaning that bad boy out with no hesitation.

Passive aggressive bathroom notes backfire where I work. Someone wrote one about not putting the paper towels in the trash after using them, and people responded by 1. openly making fun of whoever did it and 2. printing out notes from a tumblr feed of passive aggressive bathroom notes and putting a new one over that note every day.

@littlemisst08:  Hey, at least they are washing their hands. Yep, there are several ‘offenders’ in my office who can’t even wash, or wash their hands for such a minimal time it can’t do any good.

Buy a fake camera from the joke store and stick it up on the wall with Comand strips. It wil look like a security camera. No one’s privacy is being invaded as it will be in the open area of the washroom.

Passive aggressive notes work sometimes.

I live in a nice high rise, and it has a trash chute on every floor in its own little room. People kept leaving pizza boxes, bags of kitty litter,  boxes of spent wine bottles, etc. in the room, instead of putting them down the chute.Granted, some of these things are larger, but it’s like they didn’t care to take the time to fold up the box or rebag the litter into smaller containers. They just waited for the maintenance guy to come around and get it. Once I even saw one that had a post it on it that said NOT TRASH-RECYCLING. It had all these soda cans and the bag wasn’t even TIED. Um, hello…recycling doesn’t pick up here!

It was really annoying having to step around all that to throw our trash the proper way, but I told myself I wouldn’t say anything about it until it caused a problem.

Sure enough I saw a bug right by our door one day (we have the “honor” of living right across from the trash room.) It was giant! We keep really clean when it comes to food, and have only clutter otherwise, so I knew it had come from the trash area.

I put a Ziploc over the bug and caught him, then put a bit of alcohol in the bottom to euthanize it. Then I wrote a note that said in huge letters “SAY HELLO TO YOUR NEW FLATMATE. Garbage belongs IN the chute….not beside it.” I even put a little word bubble on the bag coming from near the bug’s mouth area saying “Yum! Garbage!”

And I taped the Ziploc with the bug to the note and hung it facing the elevators,where everyone and their guests could see it.

Nary a problem since with trash not going in the chute, and have never seen another bug.
