These Notes Left for Strangers Will Restore Your Faith in Humanity

31 May 2024

Leaving notes is still a popular tradition. People do it at home when writing messages for their loved ones, and even strangers do it to convey something to random passersby. We have compiled for you a selection of the quirkiest notes ever left by people to strangers. Scroll down and lift your spirits.

1. A Coaster that Carries the Truth

This coaster raises an important question: when does a desire for alcohol shift from being a hobby or a social activity to becoming a problem? The recent surge of microbreweries and charming pubs across America can obscure this reality for a while.

Yet, even those indulging in one exclusive, limited-edition beer after another will eventually recognize their need for help. Someone who pens such a thoughtful note on a coaster might not be ready to address it just yet. But despite everything, these words are a good message and a reason for reflection.

2. Eavesdropping is Sometimes Helpful

Eavesdropping can be uncomfortable and even unethical, but sometimes it's unavoidable. In this case, the eavesdropper went a step further by leaving a note that not only acknowledged their actions but also brought a smile to the person's face.

2. Eavesdropping is Sometimes Helpful.jpg?format=webp@Die witzigsten Notizen, die Menschen an völlig Fremde geschrieben haben/

Their intentions were clearly good, aiming to offer a vote of confidence during what appeared to be a difficult time. It takes courage to reach out, even anonymously, and the eavesdropper deserves credit for their thoughtfulness. Leaving notes of encouragement or positivity for strangers can genuinely brighten someone's day.

3. The Perfect Note

Perhaps you've worked in a place with a communal fridge. Maybe you've experienced the frustration of repeated thefts from that fridge, leading to flaring tempers. For some, the workday is tough, and knowing there's a soda waiting in the fridge might be the only thing that helps them get through the eight-hour grind.

3. The Perfect Note .jpg?format=webp@siredwardh/

But then you find your soda has been stolen. In this case, the thief not only took it but also promised to replace it. We question why he decided to take it initially. Was he desperate for caffeine? Did he need a sugar boost for a diabetes-related reason? Was he unaware it was someone else's and, once informed, felt ashamed? Regardless of the reason, good on Justin for making amends.

4. A Dissatisfied Guest Who Should Not Have Been Invited

Clearly, this person is unhappy with their life. It's hard not to feel sympathy, as they are suffering in some way. Is this just typical teenage angst, the kind many of us experience between the ages of thirteen and nineteen? Or is it the more persistent dread that people in their twenties often feel in today's world?

4. A Dissatisfied Guest Who Should Not Have Been Invited.jpg?format=webp@impactofreasons/

People often seek a change of scenery to lift themselves out of prolonged funks, but this tactic clearly didn't work for this individual. At least they liked the place they stayed, so there's that. We hope this is the beginning of positive changes that the person isn't even aware of yet.

5. Would You Risk Tasting It?

A new employee joins the team and decides to bring snacks for everyone, along with a note expressing excitement about starting work. So far, so good - thoughtful and a great way to make a positive impression. If it had ended there, there wouldn't be any notes. But... you see... the brownies are shaped a certain way.

5. Would You Risk Tasting It.jpg?format=webp@riabetes94/

The funny thing is, if they weren't shaped that way, they would look fantastic, which reveals something we never knew about brownies. Apparently, this is for an outpatient clinic, which explains a bit - in the healthcare field, you tend to worry less about appearances. They can have a rather twisted sense of humor.

6. It Was a Very Weird…

"J," a girl, receives a lengthy note from someone, delving into various topics. The guy boasts about working on a 147-acre farm like a man when he was only ten - quite a tough act to follow. Then again, there are plenty of other people who know how to spell this woman’s name correctly and can sign their own name without causing embarrassment.

6. It Was a Very Weird….jpg?format=webp@rwnt/

They probably won't just leave a note that makes J feel like she needs to carry a weapon at all times. At least the guy managed to pay a compliment and mention that she smells good. If you want to impress a woman, it's always a good idea to start with a kind word. But perhaps refrain from declaring obsession after just one meeting.

7. Assembly is Required

Many people adore Lego, but it seems not everyone grasps the fundamentals of the brand: you have to assemble them yourself. That's just how it works. We doubt there's a single Lego set anywhere in the world that comes pre-assembled. You've got to put those little pieces together, for goodness' sake. They might only consist of two or three pieces, but assembly is required.

7. Assembly is Required .jpg?format=webp@lessons_learnt/

This individual seemed to expect a toy already built from little blocks and such, without any assembly needed. But that's the beauty of Lego! We wouldn't be surprised if more people enjoyed the process of building the sets than playing with them once completed. Plus, you can get creative and build other things with them too!

8. Be Polite, Even in the Worst of Times

This individual is hungover and possibly still a bit intoxicated, yet managed to write a note with better handwriting than we could achieve on our best day, with very few spelling or grammatical errors. How long did it take them? Did they painstakingly write it word by word, or perhaps pause after each letter? 

8. Be Polite, Even in the Worst of Times.jpg?format=webp@cheeseburgercat/

Maybe this note was penned long ago and saved until the right moment. Most people wouldn't worry too much if the pizza delivery person saw them in a sorry state – it wouldn't be the first time they've encountered someone in such a condition. But this person still retained a shred of self-respect even after a wild night.

9. Exposing the Entire Neighborhood

When we humans find ourselves in our most vulnerable and unguarded moments, most of us prefer a sense of security. We usually reserve such moments for when we are alone or with a specific person. Therefore, receiving a note in your mailbox gently informing you that you might be unintentionally revealing more than you realized can be mortifying for most.

9. Exposing the Entire Neighborhood.jpg?format=webp@_river_song_/

The sender likely thought they were being discreet, but curtains can reveal more than expected if not properly tested. These neighbors had a front-row seat to the entire spectacle, whether they were interested or not, easily deciphering what was happening. It might be time to invest in some thicker drapes or simply switch off the lights.

10. The Owner of a Monster Truck that Knows How to Ruin a Day

Few situations are as aggravating as being blocked in by a car. It has the potential to completely disrupt your day and cause significant lateness to work. In this individual's situation, it's evident that the experience had a profoundly negative effect on their morning, as evidenced by the stern note they left. It leaves us pondering how they gained access to a monster truck.

10. The Owner of a Monster Truck that Knows How to Ruin a Day.jpg?format=webp@VQHvXj6/

If this car obstructs their path again, there will undoubtedly be serious repercussions, and frankly, we can't blame them. We understand the extent to which such an inconvenience can ruin one's day. And no offense intended to the owners of monster trucks, but they tend to be rather imposing vehicles.

11. An Inspiring Act of Kindness We Could All Learn From

It's heartwarming to hear about acts of kindness like Liz's decision to pay a stranger's parking ticket. Her generosity not only helped someone avoid a fine but also brightened their day. Such selfless individuals, who go out of their way to help others without expecting anything in return, are rare. 

11. An Inspiring Act of Kindness We Could All Learn From.jpg?format=webp@Found this on my windshield.../

Liz's act of kindness serves as an inspiration for others to spread positivity and goodwill in their communities. It's entirely possible that the recipient of Liz's kindness paid it forward, creating a chain of positive actions. This case is a great example of human kindness.

12. The Breaking Point of Parking Spot Frustration

It's easy to imagine the frustration building up each time the rightful owner of the spot arrived home, only to find it occupied. The note signifies a breaking point, where polite patience gives way to blunt confrontation. While the choice of words underscores the exasperation, it also hints at a last-ditch attempt to resolve the issue without escalating further.

12. The Breaking Point of Parking Spot Frustration.jpg?format=webp@calypsos/

The car owner might find the note amusing or perplexing, but the message is clear: the spot is reserved, and parking there again will not be tolerated. It's a relatable scenario for anyone who's ever had their parking spot taken and had to circle the block looking for an alternative. 

13. The Ripple Effect of the Kindness

Malcolm's note seemed to radiate a sense of satisfaction, the kind that comes from rubbing something in someone's face. His joy was likely evident, but it serves as a cautionary tale for us all. How we treat our neighbors can have long-lasting effects, and we never know when we might need their help.

13. The Ripple Effect of the Kindness.jpg?format=webp@J9W2fBll/

It's easy to think that being nice to those around us isn't necessary, but the reality is we never know when their assistance might be crucial. Malcolm's message is a reminder that we should always aim to be kind and understanding.

14. Humor and Irony in Handling Passive-Aggressive Neighbors

Dealing with passive-aggressive behavior can be incredibly frustrating, particularly when it comes from a neighbor. However, the sarcastic remark about "adding some color" injects a bit of humor into the situation. Maybe the neighbor who receives the note will appreciate the musical reference and recognize the irony.

14. Humor and Irony in Handling Passive-Aggressive Neighbors.jpg?format=webp@oligarchy/

Whether the note will change their behavior is doubtful. Nonetheless, the writer's talent for crafting a clever and well-written message is commendable. Perhaps they can channel their writing skills into more productive endeavors in the future.

15. Max from 3F and Community Courtesy

Leaving clothes in a shared dryer for too long can be incredibly frustrating for others in the building. It causes delays, inconveniences those waiting to use the machine, and shows a lack of respect for others' time and space. However, there are individuals like Max from 3F who make a living in a shared community more pleasant.

15. Max from 3F and Community Courtesy.jpg?format=webp@FactsLaughable/

Max's creativity extends beyond his artistic pursuits, as shown by his thoughtful gesture of folding his neighbors' sheets. Acts of consideration like this make him an ideal neighbor, earning the support and appreciation of his fellow residents.

16. A Note Filled with Anger and Despair

The theft of a 4-year-old's paddling pool may appear senseless at first glance, but its impact on both the child and their family is profound. What might seem like a minor incident to some carries significant emotional weight for those affected. For the child, it's a loss of joy and innocence, a beloved plaything abruptly snatched away. 

16. A Note Filled with Anger and Despair.jpg?format=webp@eefurr/

In response to this act of theft, the child's father penned an angry note, expressing not just frustration but also a raw surge of emotion. Wishing the thief to drown in the pool might seem like an extreme reaction, but it's a visceral response born out of a mix of anger, helplessness, and perhaps a desire for justice or retribution. 

17. Trash Can Notes and Unforeseen Consequences

Sure, that's the kind of note that'll ensure your trash can gets a thorough inspection. You're not suggesting it's your spouse, are you? Well then, I suppose you wouldn't mind if we took a look inside, just to be sure. This scenario might be common in areas with a lot of hunting activity, but it also presents an ideal opportunity to dispose of someone you've grown tired of.

17. Trash Can Notes and Unforeseen Consequences.jpg?format=webp@fleetingambition/

But let's be realistic, are garbage collectors truly going to sift through every bag they come across to check for animal parts like hooves or antlers? Certainly not. They'll likely take the sign at face value and carry on with their tasks. Even if the sign is misleading, it wouldn't be too difficult to track down the person responsible—they left a note, after all.

18. Revealing Insights About the Hotel

This note might seem odd at first glance, but its discovery in a hotel room adds context to its peculiarity. Found tucked inside a robe by a woman, the situation starts to make sense. Had the robe been laundered, the note would likely have been removed or damaged. Its presence indicates that the robe hadn't been cleaned at all.

18. Revealing Insights About the Hotel.jpg?format=webp@ulewde/

The individual preceding the woman who found the note did everyone a favor by shedding light on the hotel's laundry practices. Like many hotels, this one falls short in terms of thoroughness. Even items near a person's skin, such as a robe, may not receive proper washing treatment.

19. Neighborly Concerns

Upon discovering the note left by her neighbor, the "Lady of the House" experienced a feeling of unease and apprehension. The message carried an ominous tone, prompting her to ponder if her safety was at risk. She couldn't shake the unsettling thought that her neighbor might have developed an unhealthy fascination with her life or, worse yet, harbored malicious intentions.

19. Neighborly Concerns.jpg?format=webp@kBOYdc7/ 

To preempt any potential conflicts, it might be prudent for the "Lady of the House" to initiate contact with her neighbor and foster an amicable relationship. A simple gesture like a friendly wave or greeting could significantly ease tensions and deter any potential "True Crime" scenarios from unfolding. It's always wise to prioritize caution in such situations.

20. The Book Outshines the Film

For those who delved into The Hobbit before experiencing its cinematic adaptations, it was a rollercoaster of surprises. Much was altered, prolonged, or added to stretch it into a trilogy when a simpler, more concise narrative would have sufficed. While two movies might have done justice, the attempt to recapture the epic scale of The Lord of the Rings films felt excessive.

20. The Book Outshines the Film.jpg?format=webp@bigbruck/

A note discovered within a copy of The Hobbit serves as a gentle caution to readers. The book diverges from the trilogy's path, yet it retains its own magic. Delving into the original text might unveil even more treasures than anticipated.

21. A Playful Twist on a Familiar Threat

The author of this note seems to have drawn inspiration from Liam Neeson's intense performance in Taken. It's evident they've watched the movie quite a few times and have memorized Neeson's iconic monologue. However, while Neeson's character is a father seeking to rescue his kidnapped daughter, here the threats are humorously aimed at a poor parker.

21. A Playful Twist on a Familiar Threat.jpg?format=webp@OuCrj7g/

Despite the comedic twist, the note conveys a clear message: failure to comply with parking instructions will result in consequences – perhaps even being boxed in! It's a clever play on a well-known movie line, showcasing the writer's creativity.

22. Most Persistent Noise Disturbance

Living in close proximity to others inevitably means enduring the sounds of their daily routines. However, enduring a neighbor's incessant car alarm blaring throughout the night warrants some action, perhaps even a strongly worded note. It's baffling how someone could sleep through such a racket, but fingers crossed the note does the trick. 

22. Most Persistent Noise Disturbance.jpg?format=webp@KfqUD9f/

The cherry on top? That tiny "award" at the bottom of the page. Just those few blue letters would have sufficed to convey the message loud and clear. The note, with its not-so-subtle hint, reads: "Congratulations! Your car alarm has won the 'Most Persistent Noise Disturbance' award for the entire neighborhood. 

23. A Subtle Hint

In a parking lot bustling with activity, a man's vehicle stood out, not for its make or model, but for its audacious occupation of multiple parking spots. It was as if the driver had a blatant disregard for the parking norms, leaving frustration in his wake. Witnessing this automotive arrogance, another member of the parking community took it upon themselves to deliver a message. 

23. A Subtle Hint.jpg?format=webp@DedsecWatcher/

With a mix of irritation and humor, they left a note tucked beneath the windshield wiper, bearing a pointed complaint. But what caught the attention, or rather raised an eyebrow, was the unexpected addition—a condom, accompanied by a stern inscription: "Do not reproduce."

24. The Passive-Aggressive Smiley Face

Seeing a smiley face at the end of a note from a neighbor can provide some relief, especially when the message might otherwise be frustrating or confrontational. In this particular instance, the note's content seems to be accurate regarding the necessity of a permit for constructing a garage that encroaches on another's property.

24. The Passive-Aggressive Smiley Face.jpg?format=webp@HIXy9nw/

While it's understandable that the recipient might feel annoyed or embarrassed upon receiving such a note, the inclusion of a smiley face could potentially diffuse any tension. It serves as a subtle gesture to soften the tone and indicate a willingness to maintain friendly relations. 

25. The Lannisters are Coming to You

It's safe to assume that most people have indulged in the epic saga of Game of Thrones. And it appears that the individual behind this note left on a car windshield, drew inspiration from the series. Allow us to elaborate. In the world of Game of Thrones, the Lannisters are infamous for their ruthless nature, dispatching anyone who dares to cross their path without hesitation.

25. The Lannisters are Coming to You.jpg?format=webp@TheCircusOfValues/

Consequently, the implication is clear: whoever parked in this spot should perhaps start watching their back. Just as the Lannisters fiercely protected their territory, the analogy suggests a similar sentiment toward parking violations in this fictional context.

26. Just Simply a Story about Two Squirrels

It must be quite the sight to wake up to this note greeting you before you hop into your car for work, or really, at any moment of the day. After all, any time seems to be prime time for two squirrels to begin their mating ritual. So, whether it's the crack of dawn or high noon, the timing seems fitting.

26. Just Simply a Story about Two Squirrels .jpg?format=webp@oPqSPyu/

The mere thought of wildlife romance unfolding within the confines of your vehicle is not one you'd care to entertain. Yet, it leaves you pondering the intentions of the note-leaver—were they aiming for friendliness or a touch of cheekiness? Nonetheless, it appears whatever message they had was significant enough for them to jot it down.

27. Note with Hate

Sarcasm can wield a certain beauty, especially when employed in a note, and the following example takes it to the extreme. Rather than resorting to harsh language or outright cursing at the culprit responsible for relocating their bins to the park, the note's author maintained a facade of utmost politeness. 

27. Note with Hate.jpg?format=webp@ra1lLFB/

Undoubtedly, it's infuriating when someone interferes with the placement of one's trash cans, thereby disrupting their regular disposal routine. Just in case the recipient of the note found themselves momentarily perplexed by the seemingly kind words and the decorative heart adorning the message, the sign-off leaves no room for misinterpretation. 

28. Taking a Man's Protective Gear

Stealing is unequivocally unethical, but the theft of something as intimate and vital as a man's package protector transcends mere wrongdoing. This particular item is crafted to offer comfort and support to a man's most delicate region, rendering it indispensable to his daily regimen.

28. Taking a Man's Protective Gear.jpg?format=webp@Uselessmelody/

Removing it constitutes not only a breach of his property rights but also an intrusion into his private sphere. The note's author articulates a wish that the individual who fell victim to this theft possesses prowess in a sport necessitating physical retribution, implying a belief that the thief merits a dose of their own medicine.

29. Caught in the Act

Colliding with someone's vehicle and neglecting to leave a note ranks high on our scale of disrespectful behavior. While accidents are inevitable, it's a fundamental display of human decency to leave a note containing your contact details and acknowledge your mistakes. Unfortunately, the individual responsible for this collision failed to adhere to such basic courtesies. 

29. Caught in the Act.jpg?format=webp@Ayrity/

However, fortune favored the victim as a bystander who witnessed the incident and took action. Now, when the affected party contacts their insurance provider, they possess essential information regarding the perpetrator of the damage. Unlike other notes featured on this list, this particular message wasn't penned by an uninvolved third party, rendering it entirely distinctive.

30. The Trials of Apartment Living

Apartment dwellers quickly grow accustomed to various aspects of communal living. The cacophony of footsteps echoing above, the swift pitter-patter down the corridors, or even occasional odors wafting in from neighboring balconies become part of the daily routine. While most of these disturbances are tolerable, the inability to sleep through successive nights intensifies their irritation.

30. The Trials of Apartment Living.jpg?format=webp@saved_by_Singularity/

Among the most aggravating disruptions is the relentless, rhythmic pounding, often emanating from directly overhead, disrupting attempts at sleep. Many have either penned or received notes pleading for a modicum of tranquility in such instances. Yet, addressing the matter delicately is crucial owing to the sensitive nature of the issue—especially considering the proximity involved.

31. Public Relationship Problems

The note indicates that the couple's relationship has deteriorated to the extent that their loud arguments are disturbing the neighbors. The writer expresses frustration with the couple's behavior, implying they need to improve their communication skills.

31. Public Relationship Problems.jpg?format=webp@HDerrick/

It's evident that the couple's issues are now impacting those around them, which is never a positive development. The idea of being the subject of gossip and scrutiny can be extremely uncomfortable, and it's unfortunate that things have escalated to this level. Hopefully, the couple can resolve their issues and restore peace to the building.

32. Remarks in English

The author of this note uses dry humor to deliver a polite yet firm reminder for the driver to be more considerate on the road, laced with a hint of sarcasm. The phrase "bloody sardines" hints at a British influence, whether the writer is actually British, a fan of British English, or has spent time in the UK.

32. Remarks in English.jpg?format=webp@PutADonkOnIt/

Regardless of their background, the message is clear: drivers should remember they are sharing the road with other people, each with their schedules and destinations. The note’s tone suggests frustration with inconsiderate driving habits, urging more mindfulness. It's a gentle nudge, reminding us that everyone has places to be and their challenges.

33. A Frustrated Book Lover’s Plea

This note expresses the frustration of a kind-hearted individual trying to share free books with the community, only to be thwarted by one person's selfishness. But seriously, who would try to take all the books from a library? The writer's humorous appeal to fellow book lovers is to watch for the lady in the golden sedan.

33. A Frustrated Book Lover’s Plea.jpg?format=webp@OctopussSevenTwo/

Also, he advised to give her disapproving looks effectively underscoring that this behavior is unacceptable. The note also highlights the power of community and how small acts of kindness, like sharing free books, can unite people and foster a love of reading.

34. A Bad Cup of Coffee Jumpstarts a Grumpy Morning

It's frustrating to pay for something and not get what you expect. While the note might seem harsh, the writer may have experienced poor coffee from this barista multiple times before. Alternatively, the barista might be new or in need of more training.

34. A Bad Cup of Coffee Jumpstarts a Grumpy Morning.jpg?format=webp@E7dTDMB/

Regardless of the reason, it's crucial for baristas and other service workers to provide their customers with quality products and experiences. Hopefully, this note will act as a wake-up call for the baristas and motivate them to enhance their skills. After all, there's nothing worse than starting your day with a bad cup of coffee.

35. Saving Squirrels Above All Else

Although the woman's driving might have damaged her mailbox, her compassion for wildlife is admirable. Her husband's note reveals that she was trying to avoid hitting an animal, which is certainly a noble cause. In contrast, it's unfortunate that her mailbox was destroyed in the process.

35. Saving Squirrels Above All Else.jpg?format=webp@LukeDarkwater/

It's heartening to see that some people prioritize the well-being of animals over their own property. The note also emphasizes that the woman has a supportive husband who is willing to take responsibility and rectify the damage caused.

36. Turning Down the Volume Becomes the Only Option

Enduring the same repetitive noises night after night can drive anyone crazy. Living near inconsiderate neighbors can turn your life into a nightmare until you find a solution, and for many, a note like this one is the best option. This particular note is more intense than most.

 36. Turning Down the Volume Becomes the Only Option.jpg?format=webp@Yossarian_Noodle/

It insults the person responsible, mocks their music choices, and suggests they might be breaking the law. While these aren't the kinds of things you want to say right away, you have to admit that a note like this would likely make you more conscious of what your neighbors think of you.

37. Retrieving the Bike

Bicycles prove invaluable during college years. They occupy minimal space, require no fuel like cars, are far more affordable, and can be secured with a lock to deter theft. Usually. Occasionally, they vanish, taken by someone in need of transportation. Typically, they never return. However, in this instance, the thief's conscience prevailed.

37. Retrieving the Bike.jpg?format=webp@MegaThrustEarthquake/

This individual, in a state of blackout, required transportation home. Yet, instead of abandoning the bike, they returned it to its original location, accompanied by an apologetic note providing context. It seems likely that this person didn't intend to steal the bike, but circumstances compelled them to do so.

38. A Time of Unity

In recent years, there have been numerous opportunities for individuals to support one another, and we're pleased to acknowledge that at least one Domino's employee went above and beyond to uplift others. Whether you're feeling unwell or simply had a challenging day, ordering a pizza can provide a much-needed boost. 

38. A Time of Unity.jpg?format=webp@baDaXeMan/

In this particular instance, an individual ordered pizza and requested they be left on the front porch due to a severe illness in the household. The delivery person went the extra mile by leaving a note of sympathy—a thoughtful gesture that exceeded expectations, especially considering the recipient would have been content with the food alone.

39. The Letter with Detailed Instructions

While ten cents may not seem like much, on a particularly exhausting day, it could make all the difference when you're craving a touch of sweetness. Yet, scrounging for a mere dime becomes an additional task, and who carries spare dimes nowadays? Most people have dollars handy, at the very least, unless they anticipate needing quarters for something specific.

39. The Letter with Detailed Instructions.jpg?format=webp@OctoSnake/

Dimes aren't typically part of one's everyday carry. This well-composed and candid note provides all the necessary information and outlines the steps required to rectify the situation. This note possesses precision and clarity. It can be useful for anyone.

40. Straight Out of a Detective Show

Penning a note on stationery and then tearing it off might give the impression of leaving no evidence behind. However, upon closer inspection, the imprint seeps through to the subsequent page, revealing a hidden trail. Deciphering this cryptic message proves challenging—it reads, "If you were a pineapple... you'd be a fineapple." 

40. Straight Out of a Detective Show.jpg?format=webp@DaruSupaHaka/

While stumbling upon this note might not offer the same thrill as a private eye uncovering a money trail, it still carries a hint of amusement. Although it's an old line, if you've never encountered it before, it's bound to elicit a chuckle. Most likely, this note serves as a sweet exchange between individuals, akin to countless others they've shared.

41. It's Astonishing That This Note Needed to Be Penned

Public restrooms can become precarious zones for individuals seemingly devoid of common sense. When encountering a locked door to a public restroom, what other conclusion could form in one's mind except that the stall is currently occupied? Using a public restroom may not rank among life's most challenging or hazardous tasks.

41. It's Astonishing That This Note Needed to Be Penned.jpg?format=webp@Vital_Granade/

Yet some individuals may find themselves struggling in such surroundings. Accustomed to a degree of privacy and personal space, they become unsettled when someone attempts to force the door open. Perhaps the other party was preoccupied with their thoughts, but such actions should still be avoided.

42. Occasionally, Treats, Folks

Many businesses have discovered that offering a small pick-me-up, such as a candy dish, can significantly boost morale. Perhaps an employee has been glued to their screen for hours and could use a sweet break. Unfortunately, the candy dish is frequently found empty, as many people have a fondness for sweets. But that's hardly surprising—after all, who doesn't enjoy candy? 

42. Occasionally, Treats, Folks.jpg?format=webp@jazullo913/

However, it's also true that some individuals have an insatiable sweet tooth. The extent of this depends on the size of the business. In a larger company with hundreds of employees, the candy dish will likely be quickly depleted, regardless of its size or capacity. In a smaller group of a dozen people, the situation becomes even more dire.

43. This Problem Could Be Solved

So, get this—the woman's neighbor dared to suggest she get her dog's vocal cords cut. Can you believe that? It's beyond absurd. Here's the thing: if a dog is barking when you're not home, how are you supposed to know?  It would be better if someone had the decency to approach this woman directly. You see, addressing the root cause of the barking is crucial.

43. This Problem Could Be Solved.jpg?format=webp@I know I've been tempted to do this to my neighbor/

It could be separation anxiety, boredom, or even fear of the neighbor. But none of these issues can be resolved if they're not brought to light. Unless you live in the middle of nowhere, it's essential to train your dog not to bark incessantly. It's just a common courtesy to your neighbors and better for your furry friend's well-being in the long run.

44. In Case Anyone Forgot - Hair on the Head

Utilizing a hair dryer to style your hair and prepare for post-shower outings at the gym is its primary purpose. After all, it's called a hair dryer for a reason – to dry hair. Witnessing it being employed for other purposes in a gym locker room can be rather off-putting. Moreover, there are safety concerns that management understandably wouldn't want to endorse any misuse.

44. In Case Anyone Forgot - Hair on the Head.jpg?format=webp@PitoChueco/

Items can be damaged or melted, leading to requests for replacements from disgruntled individuals. Well, it's only logical not to subject items to blasts of hot air in the first place. Additionally, there's the issue of sanitation that some people may find concerning. Therefore, it's best to reserve the hair dryer solely for drying your hair – specifically, your head hair.

45. We Regret the Disruption to Your Routine

These lengthy messages essentially boil down to, "You're parking in a spot that inconveniences me, so I'll find any excuse to persuade you to relocate." Perhaps the individual is parking on the street, which, according to the note, would "disrupt the ebb and flow," though the significance of this phrase remains unclear.

45. We Regret the Disruption to Your Routine.jpg?format=webp@saddle_man/

Alternatively, if the person is parking in front of the note-giver's property, it might garner more sympathy and support from us. Many of us have likely encountered similar situations, making us inclined to align ourselves with the individual who left this note.

46. Toilet Dilemma

When you purchase a hefty supply of 30 toilet paper rolls from Amazon, it's only natural to seek solace in a bit of poetic justice through a cleverly crafted note. However, what remains uncertain is the precise location where this note was placed, given that the package has already been retrieved.

46. Toilet Dilemma.jpg?format=webp@Uselessmelody/

One possibility is that the note was tucked inside the box among the layers of soft paper, awaiting discovery by the recipient upon unpacking. Alternatively, it might have been affixed to the exterior of the package with a vibrant ribbon, catching the attention of the delivery person as they journeyed towards the recipient's doorstep.
