All is fair in love and keeping order in the break room.
You could have just said "stop stealing my yogurt." No need to thin-brag, Daniel. (via)
Adults are basically just children who've grown fat, watched their dreams die, and learned to shrink from confrontation. So it follows that the modern workplace is just as petty and territorial as your typical elementary school playground, except there's a lot less spitting and hair-pulling, and a lot more bitchy note-writing. The most successful workplace notes strive to entertain just as much as they impolitely advise and chastise, and the notes collected here are some of the best of the medium.

A pen so awesome it will make you racist against yourself.
A delicious treat and it makes you regular? Sign us up!
Don't fall for the sign. They eat donuts really awkwardly too.
I like this office. They don't mess around.
...and coffee is the only thing that puts us back together.
She went out of her way to make such a nice sign. She porbably appreciates the notes.
Probably a restaurant. Anyone with a special "pasta fridge" in their office has no right to be angry.
No, honey, I haven't been kissing anyone. I've just been stealing food.
Did she spell "highness" wrong? Or "You're"?
Worst. Day care center. Ever.
I'd brew me. I'd brew me so hard.
Offices shouldn't be telling us how to love!
Open casket. It woud have wanted it that way.
The signs are breeding.
Say yes indeed to weed.
They really need to clean that vending room if it's got a groundhog problem.
Alert. Pointless Signs!
If you'd taught the kitten to attack, the Tupperware thief would have been dead already.
Hopefully our time machines will be more reliable than our copy machines.
We all have our signature style.
The TL;DR version of the above.
Speak for yourself. My nickels give me balance.
Physician, heal thyself.
You've got to really love stealing office equipment if you're taking the drains.
We'd risk our job for half an oreo.
Side-note: Keurig coffeee is always horrible. We'd quit if they started making us use those K-cups.
So medium-sized poos are cool?
If you know the author of this sign, withold your love from them. They are undeserving of love.
Thanks for the choices! We'll take option B.
Follow the old ladies. They know where the comfier chairs are.
Or just burst in. It's adorable watching them scurry under their desks.
But we took the red pill! You have no choice when you work in an office.
You mean besides cut-up chickens, pigs, cows, and probably horses if this is Europe?
"Pardon me, I was just wondering where I could get one of those signs!"
Some people give a shit; others take them without warning during the work day.

I'm sorry. Your husband didn't put a lid on his reheated pasta. Now you have to pay.
He might have fun. He might also discover who he was meant to be.

When will Serge and Wendall stop this bickering and realize they're in love...with pee?
Please try to achieve the level of joylessness that's expected of you.

We were going to drop some M-80s down its drain, but the sledgehammer sounds fun too.
If our workplace instituted this rule we'd strike.
The zombie thing is cute, but does the original sign mean you could really lose your job for eating someone's hot pocket?
That stuff really works, btw. We can steal Karen's yogurt whenever we want now!
It's worth the $18/hour. Sandra is an absolutely scintillating conversationalist. You'll weep.
That drain sucks!
They still don't know who shot that room.
Matt doesn't have a whole lot going on for himself right now.
These facility repairs will be seen as cheesy at first, but will attain a cult status when they hit video.
Fran will devote the rest of her days to making you shit too much.
"Did you see Homeland last night? It made me reflect on Plato's Cave and ideal forms."
The prophet Isiah said one day a female Messiah shall deliver women from Aunt Flo.
Dietary harassment is a growing problem in the modern, fat workforce.
That mug is the reason local news now shows Ceramic Alerts.
Something tells us that guy likes to push everyone's buttons a lot.
After all, if you don't throw out the box, no one else can put in food to steal.
That lack of self-control also applies to resisting the urge to write passive-agressive notes.
