This has to be one of the best office notes ever. Everyone needs some color in their lives and that’s exactly what they got.
4. Kevin the Sandwich
If you don’t get those office trends too, don’t worry, we don’t either. This note did a perfect job at telling everyone how silly those trends can be.
5. To-do list
Well, at least the coworkers are honest. They have a great sense of humor too. What else can you expect?

We all need a crash course in philosophy to be able to grasp the true meaning of life. Whoever put this note has clearly discovered it.
10. “Leave The Office For 10 Mins”
Reading this note reminds us of the song ‘Faded’. ‘Where are you now?’ ‘Were you only imaginary?’
11. “An Email Went Out Around The Office About A Lost Pen. This Appeared In The Break Room The Next Day”
To the guy who wrote this note: if you’re going to hold the poor pen for ransom, at least have the courtesy to spell ‘plain’ correctly. Or just don’t use autocorrect while writing the ransom note.
12. The dishes myth
This goes against everything our parents have taught us. Dishes don’t do themselves? Think again!

Debbie you should definitively think more about the environment before wasting so much paper again. We hope the office has proper paper recycling service.

Some people just can’t help themselves when it comes to sarcasm. We admire the determination of whoever put the note, sacarsm is a bad thing.

Hardly anyone can tell the difference, really. If you’re not careful you might end up with a can made of paper.

21. Large Jobs
Jobs for everyone! Please print your Jobs as large as you want him to be.

It’s never a good idea to raise the alarm at the office without a good reason. Who can blame whoever left this note for feeling alarmed?

Number one rule when it comes to eating healthy is a diverse diet. One simply can’t survive on 0% percent yogurt and hot dogs.
24. “My Office Refuses To Take Down This Non Operating Antiquated Piece Of Equipment , So I Did The Only Logical Thing”
Employers can be sentimental to the point of refusing to introduce any changes, or even keeping up with the times. Very annoying. Let’s hope nobody at the office got communicable disease.

It’s never too late to say sorry. Now not only the newsroom will smell like day old ketchup but so will the paper sheets.

Our explanation is that they need two microwaves in case one of them stops working. That’s why they warned everyone to use just one at a time. We’ll probably never know the truth.
29. Brutal but honest
When you write a note like this you surely must be a proponent of anarchy, or you’re simply too hungry to care. For some reason, we prefer the former.

We live in the 21st century, don’t we? Why let Brian do your dishes when there’s a machine perfectly capable of doing them much better – and faster.
31. “Microwave At The Office Is Out Of Order & I Work With Artists/Comedians”
