A Note to Some of My Coworkers

Dear People in my Office:
What the eff?  Is it really necessary to leave 2 sheets of toilet paper on the roll and not change it.  I can see how it could be taxing as the new rolls are about a foot away.  Are you the same person who leaves the last sheet of paper towel on the roll?  I always like to use that glue-covered last piece while drying my dishes, warming up my lunch, etc. 
Please take an additional 3 minutes to refill the ice cube trays.  I'm aware that you're busy--we all are.  But until we get a new fridge with ice maker, REFILL WHAT YOU FINISH!  That goes double for the coffee.  Yes, I'm talking to you six-cups-of-coffee-drinker.  You know who you are.  You're the people who will take from the new pot so you don't empty the old one.  Just make more coffee.  While we're on the subject--if you spill coffee grounds, sugar, and/or creamer, clean that ish up.  Do you leave messes like this at home?  Does your significant other clean up after you as though you're a child?  I think it might be time to grow up.
Kthx =)


  1. And while you're at it, knock before entering a bathroom. And it doesn't count if you knock and open the door at the same time.

  2. And quit leaving all of the standing water around the sink so when I lean up against the counter to get my eyelash out of my eye, I don't walk out of the bathroom proudly showing off my new faux incontinence problem!

    But it's okay to DRINK six cups of coffee, right? As long as I make new coffee?

  3. Do we work with the same people? Because seriously, MAKE MORE COFFEE PEOPLE.

  4. Forgot to say, found you via The Bloggess. Funny stuff here, I'll visit again!

  5. Theresa--I'm very grateful we don't have that problem! We have working locks, which I *really* appreciate.

    Julie--you can drink as much coffee as you want, just make more.

    Jenny--I don't think we work with the same people...unless there's more than one Jen in my office, in which case I should really pay more attention...

  6. Saw you on The Bloggess...

    Pencils and pens and note pads... someone has ALL of them stashed in their desk and WILL NOT share!

    I drink all the coffee, but I always make sure there's another pot brewing! Sucks to NEED caffiene and there's none to be found...

  7. my co-workers are the same, the guys flick boogers on the wall in the bathroom next to the about WTF??!
