Whoever posted this sign is either not the same person that printed it up, or they hadn’t had their coffee the morning it was put up. Do you see anything wrong with the sign? Yeah, so did everyone in this office. So, they responded to it in the best way possible: with passive-aggressive sarcasm. Yay!
The first person to notice the hypocrisy simply left a sticky note showing their confusion. But everyone that came after the original sticky note was just plain old sarcastic. With each new piece that got added, the joke just became even better. Of course, there’s a good chance that thumbtack-guy didn’t even notice the responses.
Apparently, Ed is quite the commodity in this office, and people always seem to be searching for him. When they don’t automatically spot him, they ask his closest coworker, who started getting irritated about the repetitive question. So, he designed this sign to hang by his workspace.
Now, when someone comes up and asks if Ed’s at his desk (which happens at least a few times per day,) this guy can simply point to his sign without even looking up from his computer. Do you blame him for trying to make life easier? We’d make a sign, too, if it meant less human interaction around the office! Fortunately, Ed has been around the office a lot more lately, so the sign hasn’t been necessary.
Some like it hot
If you’ve worked an office job, you know that things seem to break at least every once in a while. But people need their coffee to function in the office!
At least these coworkers were able to make the best out of a chilly situation. Ted knew it was his time to shine as soon as he saw his opening to use this joke. It’s lucky for the coffee maker, too, because it was probably feeling pretty self-conscious after the first note. Maybe they’ll bring in Mr. Coffee to heat things back up around there.
There’s always at least one person in every office who gets a little too handsy…with their coworkers’ food. Most office workers simply choose to label their goods to keep others from getting to their lunch first – but that wasn’t enough in this situation.
Nope, they tried labeling them first, which you can see by the giant “P” on the container to the right. Unfortunately, the milk bandit wasn’t fazed, so the owner had to take the next logical step: they used a padlock, obviously. The lock couldn’t have done too much good, tactically speaking, but it sure sends a message: stay away from that milk unless you’re the one that took the time to lock it down.
Ben wasn’t happy sharing a restroom at work because of his shy bladder, so he decided to try and pull a fast one by replacing the signage on the door. Hey, it doesn’t matter what a door says when someone has to pee badly enough.
The façade didn’t last for very long, as the other two male workers in the office eventually needed to use king Ben’s throne. Even if but just for a day, though, he had to enjoy it while it lasted. Maybe next time, he should shoot for replacing the second word with some reverse psychological effects: “welcome to the men’s doom.”
