Canberra makes passiveaggressivenotes (again)

Well it’s been a while, but denizens of our fair city have rated another mention at passiveaggressivenotes.com.

Connoisseurs of the genre will score the methodical structure highly. For mine the bonus points goes to the logic (yes! logic) shown at point 3. The author understands their effort to make Avocado-Thief learn the error of their ways will go unrewarded, and so prepares for next time.

I’m guessing here but with clues of four floors and students, it’s got to be ANU or UC.

Hats off either way.

What’s Your opinion?

Thank you for posting that sns. I had never heard of this passiveagressivenotes website, but after discovering it today was hypnotised by it for about 4 hours. What a hoot! I have just been liberated from a passive aggressive flatmate, so it was quite therapeutic.

Nothing wrong with soy milk, taste or otherwise

I dwelled in Toad many decades ago, in a pod with 9 other students… all Asian guys from Malaysia and Indonesia. Quite wealthy, they seemed to be.

And they persistently nicked my milk! I had my milk in a milk bottle (yes it was that long ago), and they’d just use it. I got sick of emerging from my books to make a coffee, and finding my milk all gone (and the bottle empty in the fridge).

So I grated up some white bath soap, dissolved it in some hot water, and sacrificed some milk to mix it in. And waited.

Some hours later, some swearing (in asian, I assume it was swearing, it sounded like swearing) from the kitchen, and running of the tap and more swearing. I came out and caught the thief, well one of them anyway.

Bugger writing a note, this was way more satisfying.

Hilarious!!!

A person in a building I worked in some years back would protect his milk by tagging it “breast milk”. No one ever touched it.

Soy milk would be worse, though.

Soy milk gets the same reaction from those who expect cows milk.

Still, Ant (#7) has the right idea.

they’d hire loui, no doubt!

All that for an avo? I’d love to see what they’d do if you really pissed them off.

This note is quite old (ie 2008). It was the 4th floor of the Asian Studies Building (in the team room) at ANU, and it wasn’t 1 note, it was 20 of them. They were placed on the fridge, the tables, the bench tops, the walls, the door etc Clearly the person wanted to get the message across.
By the following week (a) an anonymous avocado was left in the fridge and (b) on the door of the tea room was a mock Indiana Jones poster titled ‘Raiders of the Lost Guacamole’

Oops, I shouldn’t have assumed the writer was female.

misspris 11:59 am 21 Jul 09

I wonder if they’re an American or just can’t spell? And how do they expect the person to “return” it? Via barf bag? Perhaps she should have asked for a replacement!

awww, the note i snapped in the kitchen of Hush hasn’t made it up yet. 🙁
