Never Above 70
Heating up a room costs a lot of money. So some people like to keep a thermostat beneath anything even remotely resembling a warm temperature. But if other people have access to that thermostat, they may turn it to a temperature you don’t like.
If you can’t find any other way to stop them and you don’t like confronting them to their face, just write them a note that makes your stance clear, right? Maybe remind them to wear a sweater from time to time, if you think it will help.
When it comes to note-to-note combat, the exchange is usually only one note answering another one. But when a topic is very hotly debated, there may be far more notes involved. These individuals, however many there may be, are arguing about coffee.
It’s a very important subject to debate, wouldn’t you say? However you feel about coffee, it’s almost guaranteed that someone disagrees with you. But at least they decided to have the fight in a civil, note-related manner. It could have been worse.
Do It Yourself Mom
Lots of parents make their kids do things they don’t want to do. Usually, the kids complain about it to their faces, because why stay silent about something like that? But some kids decide that a note would be better.
Well, chances are this wasn’t a note they were giving to their parents: probably something they were forced to write at school or something. Either way, it fits into the mold of passive-aggressive notes that someone writes that made them happy.
Please Claim This
Lots of people like cats. But a lot of other people don’t. Or sometimes, they just don’t like certain cats. This individual wrote a note of sorts that shows just how they feel about some person’s lost cat and the effect it is having on them.
Well, not all cats are well-behaved, so we get someone being a little upset about having a stranger’s cat intruding on their home and their lives. That said, this kind of poster is something we’ll count as a note.
At Least Steal Properly
Sometimes, you aren’t even that mad about something. So when you leave a note, you don’t accuse someone, you just give them more advice on how to do their crimes a little better. These types of notes are actually the most amusing.
Not to mention, these notes are kind of informative. We’ve actually learned quite a bit about rhubarb here, though we’re not sure what we would do with that information regardless.
Read the Label
Are people just not getting the message when you tell them that the food in the fridge belongs to you? Is one note not enough to get their attention? Well, you can always leave a whole bunch of notes if you really have to. Just cover the whole refrigerator!
That way, no one has any excuse to eat your food. Especially not Debbie, that little thief. Can’t she read? How much more obvious do you need things to be, Debbie?!
A Little Judgmental
OK, not everyone is very nice. And while some notes may be pretty funny, we have to admit that this one is a little judgmental and critical. We know some hipsters can be annoying, but not all of them. Some hipsters are just cool people.
But maybe the sign is just all in good fun. If not, it’s a little offensive, but chances are most of the hipsters reading it probably don’t care that much about it. They tend to be pretty swell.
Don’t Cut My Hair
Some people are very fond of their hair. But when they are still kids, they don’t really get a lot of autonomy regarding how their hair is kept. Usually, parents get to choose that kind of thing. But that doesn’t mean a kid can’t be unhappy.
If they really want to express their discomfort, they write a note. And then, they add some nice little doodles to that note so that it is truly clear how upset they are. How could anyone deny a little girl that?
Only Two Options
Here we are again with another note involved in the refrigerator. Apparently, people stealing food is a pretty serious problem, which is why we can encounter so many examples like this one. Sure, there’s only two notes this time, but still.
Will people ever learn to only eat their own food? Maybe people need to start actually locking their food somehow. Padlocks on Tupperware, anyone? That’s not too silly, is it?
Easy to Read
Graphs are nice because they readily explain things without much trouble. It can be used to explain to people what they should and shouldn’t do, especially if you have to use a note instead of having a conversation. Nice and easy!
We just can’t get over the fact that someone got tilted enough to draw out this whole graph, after which they went to go and put it in a bathroom. People must have really been ticking them off. Well, the problem at hand was kind of gross.
Tired of being asked the same questions all the time? Well, that’s easy enough to take care of: just write out a nice little note that answers all of those frequently asked questions. A quick FAQ, and all of your problems are solved.
It saves you a bunch of headaches, and everyone gets the information that they want. Everyone wins. More importantly, your patience gets to survive, which is the most important thing of all.
If fish had fingers, they would write things like this regarding people that don’t take proper care of them. In this case, someone else wrote this note on the fish’s behalf. Fish need to be fed in a timely manner, you know! At least Tiffany took care of it.
Still, hopefully, the note’s recipient learns their lesson and actually takes care of the fish from now on. Fish lives matter too! Keep those poor things fed!
Marking Your Spot
Living in a snowy, frozen area means you have to deal with the reality of snowed in parking spaces. Often times, you’ll have to dig out a spot to park your car. And if someone takes that hard-earned spot? Well, obviously no one is going to be happy about that.
If you can’t find the time to confront them, you can just leave a strongly worded letter, letting them know how hard you had to work to secure that parking space, and also how inconsiderate they are. Works every time.
Highly Valuable Heirlooms
Lots of people leave notes in a fridge for people to read. Usually, people who are eating food that isn’t theirs. However, it’s hard to get people to actually listen to those notes. Maybe all you have to do is make the note more interesting somehow.
Making something interesting up about the food in question might actually do the trick. Label your eggs as family heirlooms or something. That’s sure to get the attention of whoever is eating your food, though they may eat your food regardless.
We Have Standards Here
Using notes to respond to notes is something that doesn’t happen too often. But when it does happen, it can be pretty funny. This is one such situation, where someone felt a little miffed about some low standards going on in their workplace.
They are a Fortune 500 company, after all. Comic Sans is beneath them! At least, someone in charge believes it is. We don’t necessarily disagree, though that might be because we don’t like Comic Sans in general. Is that biased?
Attention to Details
If you are going to write a note, you should at least make sure that note is written with the highest level of language arts. Otherwise, people might call you out on it, much like they do on the internet. Some people are just sticklers for details.
Besides, the idea behind a passive-aggressive note is to make yourself feel better, so having someone correct you for all to see isn’t very conducive to that, is it? Good grammar and spelling goes a long way towards one’s confidence! And dignity.
Do It For Me
If you have roommates, you may choose to talk to them via notes, rather than any other option. Maybe you just don’t like talking to them, which is pretty fair. So leave a note for them in the spot that they bother you. Usually, they see it.
Of course, how they react to it is another matter entirely, isn’t it? Most people don’t actually take notes too seriously, and if they were considerate enough to not do the annoying thing at all, then chances are a note wouldn’t be needed anyway.
Thinly Veiled Shout Out
This is an interesting thing to call a ‘note,’ but we’re going to include it anyway. After all, it is a bit of written text being used to call out someone in a passive-aggressive manner. This time, it’s a Wi-Fi password, which is something that is often jacked by other people.
Lots of people change the name of their Wi-Fi password in order to send a thinly veiled message at the people trying to steal it. This is just one such example of exactly that kind of thing. The creativity is always impressive.
Those in the service industry can rarely say the things that are really on their mind. Notes are a way to get their ideas across without incriminating themselves. It’s also a great way to be somewhat passive-aggressive with the customers.
This note about areas that people can’t smoke in is a clear example of a service worker feeling the need to be little aggressive with their customers. But hey, we can’t really blame them: it’s tough working in the service industry!
Tell Me How You Really Feel
Family is generally supposed to send you cards that accurately represent how they feel about you. Well, most cards are worded pretty well and say pretty nice things. And sometimes, that’s not how your family feels about you. When that happens, they may edit a card to get their real feelings across.
Well, at least there’s no way to misinterpret how they feel about you in this case, right? Isn’t it better to know for certain, even if the things you know aren’t very kind? Knowledge is power, and also a great way to know who your friends are.
A Big Difference
When most people hear the word buffet, they automatically assume that it means an all-you-can-eat buffet is in the cards. However, this is not always the case. In fact, there are many buffets that do not allow you to eat everything you want.
Having to tell every single person in the restaurant such a thing would be tiresome, so writing down a note to explain everything more easily (and with a degree of passive aggression) is probably the most efficient option.
Mind Your Business
Working in a cubicle with other employees nearby? Usually, they are willing to tell you if they think something is wrong with your work. However, if they don’t like confrontation, they might just use a note to get their point across.
This way, they get to remain anonymous, which means they don’t have to fight with anyone. But at the same time, they get to say their piece against someone that they want to judge. Really though, can’t they mind their own business?
Calling You Out
At first, this note seems like one that wouldn’t be considered passive-aggressive. But it’s pretty obvious that they are calling out Jay Parker, whoever that is. Well, maybe he should have been eating his food like a normal person.
Either way, a lot of effort went into this note. Someone had to think up a whole anagram, after all! Kudos to them for putting their anger and frustration to use in a creative way. Some people can’t do that.
Let’s Break Up
When you provide a note to your employers letting them know that you won’t be working for them any longer, you tend to show how much you did or didn’t like them. This note makes it very clear that this individual didn’t like the place they worked.
The note itself is actually quite eloquent, even though it is very displeased and unhappy. That in and of itself makes it more interesting to read, at the very least. What a way to burn those bridges, indeed.
The Truth of It
Baggage handlers have a hard job. Well, all they do is carry around heavy things, but that in and of itself can be very demanding. That’s why they might make a ‘note’ like this one, expressing how they feel in ways they can’t say to people normally.
That’s the point of passive-aggressive notes, right? They are great ways to say things that you can’t really say to people. It’s also a great way for people who aren’t very combative to get frustrating things off of their chest.
Some Helpful Advice
Most passive-aggressive notes refrain from being outright confrontational and present some sort of pretense that makes it sound like they are just trying to help. This is one such note. Well, we can’t really blame them in this instance.
People shouting at the top of their lungs late at night is pretty annoying, there’s no denying that. If you can’t identify who they are, leaving a note for them might be the only way to get your disgruntled feelings across.
Keep It Clean
Trying to protect an innocent child from the dangers of the world is harder than ever considering how easy it is to get information these days. But at the least, you should be able to avoid such things from your neighbors, right? A passive-aggressive note may help with that.
At the least, it might get your neighbors to be a little more mindful of their activities. On the other hand, they’re free to do whatever they want: but maybe they could do it a little quieter, no?
Thinking of You
Husbands and wives may be in love (sometimes), but that doesn’t mean they don’t have gripes against one another. Usually, it’s small things, like putting down the toilet seat or nagging. And of course, those small things usually result in small shots at each other.
Sometimes, a small note is the better way to take those shots, because then they can be interpreted as cheeky instead of offensive. That’s the best way to make these little potshots without starting anything.
The types of people who respond to passive-aggressive notes are usually the types of people that have a great deal of sarcasm and cheekiness on their side. This is an example of someone who clearly thinks of themselves as very funny.
We have to say though, it’s pretty gross for them to have hunted down a fly just for this joke. Like, did they do the school project thing just to make this point? It’s more than a little unnerving to go to such lengths.
Pay It No Mind
When you are really loud, your neighbors might assume that something bad is happening. But maybe you’re just playing a video game online and all those internet strangers are successfully dunking on you all the time.
That kind of situation usually ends up with a lot of yelling and whatnot, and if you need to clear that up, a note is something you an rely on if you have to. They tend to work decently, assuming they are actually read.
More Aggressive Than Most
People who have dogs should pick up the dog’s droppings, in order to keep grass clean for other people. But not all dog owners do that, even though they should. If you get annoyed by that kind of behavior, you can do what this individual did.
Well, collecting all that dog poop yourself does seem pretty gross, actually. But there’s little doubt that it would get your point across quite easily. Also in a pretty gross manner, but across, at the least.
Learn to Conserve
Toilet paper isn’t cheap, you know? Well, it’s not terribly expensive, but either way, any money you don’t have to spend is money better spent. So if you have to share your toilet paper, you may feel the need to remind those you share with to conserve where you can.
What better way to do that than to write notes directly on your toilet paper? There’s no way the person you share with could miss that, right? Of course, there is something to be said about how much marker is wasted.
Being Honest, At Least
If you hit someone’s car, you should leave them information about your insurance so that the damage can be fixed. But you know, not everyone wants to do that. Some people like to put up a front to make themselves appear responsible.
But at least they apologized, right? That makes it… a little better? Not much, but a little. They could have been entirely rude and unapologetic about it, which is a bit more irritating and unforgivable.
Very Rude and Frank
We actually struggle to call this note passive-aggressive, as it really just seems… aggressive. Actually, it’s pretty upfront about how displeased they are. They even introduce themselves as ‘disgusted.’ Can’t get much more judgmental than that.
So maybe it doesn’t fit perfectly, but we do feel that it’s close enough to be on this list, considering a variety of different things. Still, what an aggressive letter!
A Thousand Curses Upon You!
If you’re going to leave a note, you may as well make it a very interesting note to read, right? This one pretty much tops the list in regards to being unique and fun to read. It’s also very passive-aggressive and quite eloquent.
That’s a long list of curses. Next up, a hex of some sort? Do you really have to wish all this bad stuff on them for some dirty dishes? Well, we do know how annoying it can be when people don’t clean up after themselves.
OK, so we’re cheating a little bit with this one, as it is obviously tied to the note that came before. But it’s just so amusing that we have to include it no matter what. Besides, it is technically a different note, so it’s fair game!
At this point, maybe we’re willing to admit that leaving your dishes in the sink is pretty rough, especially when it gets in the way of another person’s cooking and cleaning. Take care of your mess or be cursed in such a fashion!
That’s Just Rude
This note really reminds us of those moms or grandmas that always have bad things to say, but in subtle, not so obvious ways. You know, the way where you know they are insulting you, but you can’t call them out on it because it wasn’t direct.
We’re not sure why this note was written, but it is definitely pretty rude. Downright offensive, really. Needless to say, we don’t condone this type of thing.
Answering the Call
Answering a note that was left to accuse you with a degree of anger is pretty understandable. That said, we’re not sure if the person should be labeled as self-righteous. After all, slamming doors at the wrong time of the day or night is pretty rude.
Not that we can say who does and doesn’t deserve to be criticized. Either way, it’s pretty clear that the people who wrote these passive-aggressive notes are cut from the same cloth.
Get an Ashtray
The best passive-aggressive notes are the ones that aren’t written on paper. They are especially good if they use special materials that prove their point to get that point across. Just take a look at what we mean. It’s very clever.
After all, there is a good point here. With all of that ash on the ground, someone was able to spell out all these words in pretty large letters. That’s a lot of ash just being left around in the open.
Is That Plagiarized?
Alright, so this little speech is totally ripped off from a certain movie starring Liam Neeson. But hey, it’s a really good speech! Can’t blame anyone for using it in appropriate situations, right? And this is definitely an appropriate situation.
After all, decaf in the regular coffee pot? Now that’s just heinous. This speech is perfectly fitting for a criminal of that degree. We can all agree on that, right?
There are a lot of chores to be split up when you live in a house full of people. It’s always best to share these responsibilities. Otherwise, you might wind up finding a rude note like this in your meal.
Clearly, this person is tired of making dinner and wants a little break. If they didn’t, they wouldn’t have taken the time to engrave the top of this shepherd’s pie.
Pick it Up
When you’re a dog owner, one of the tasks you have to do on a daily basis is take them for a walk. This allows them to get exercise as well as to go to the bathroom. But, most cities require you to pick up the poop when you’re — and understandably so!
Apparently, this woman doesn’t do that and this person, wanting to get the message across, decided to leave this passive-aggressive note for all to see.
Keep it Clean
It’s always nice when your apartment complex has a laundry room included. This allows you to make sure you can keep your clothes extra clean but, apparently, this laundry room has one issue.
Maybe this person walked in on a nude individual doing their laundry, and that’s how this note came about. The only question we have is — why is this person doing their laundry with their clothes off?
Figure it Out
When you live in an apartment complex, you can often hear whatever is happening in the apartments near you. If the walls are thin enough, sometimes you can even hear them above and below you.
Tired of all the screaming and yelling, this person decided to leave a note for one of their neighbors, giving them a little bit of friendly — or passive-aggressive — advice.
Some people just really get into music and will sing along with their favorite songs. They may not necessarily think they have the best voice, but they definitely feel the groove, and they just have to let the music out.
This person felt that they needed to be a critic and leave this rude note on their neighbor’s front door. They didn’t even dare to sign their real name!
A Little WD40
The noise from other people’s apartments is annoying at any time of the day. But, it’s especially bothersome when it comes to late-night hours, as that’s the time you’re trying to get a little shut-eye.
This neighbor was just trying to kindly give the guy advice and was extremely supportive in doing so. In fact, she even admitted that she was impressed by her neighbor’s stamina. Still, some WD40 will do the whole apartment building some good…
Sometimes, the notes that are left can be adorable but still a little rude. This kid decided it was time for his mom to understand what it felt like to have to deal with grades. So, she crafted this very adorable report card for her.
It seems that she does a good job in almost everything except for cooking dinner — that’s just not applicable. From the sounds of it, mama bear doesn’t cook dinner as much as her daughter would like. Or perhaps the dishes just aren’t that yummy?
Let Me Show You
When you’re working in an office building or an establishment where everybody shares the bathroom, certain etiquette needs to be maintained. One of those is to make sure that you don’t drip on the toilet seats.
This person thought that they would just leave a nice note giving a little bit of an instructional diagram on what that looks like. Seems fair to us!
There are a lot of things that happen in public restrooms that nobody wants to talk about. But, if it’s a restroom that’s attached to an office or business, there should be certain care taken when utilizing it.
For instance, you shouldn’t be blowing up the toilet at work without having with you some sort of deodorant to make the room smell good again. That’s just common courtesy!
Many cities allow people to drop trash on the side of the curbside to be picked up by the garbagemen on certain days. But, some people take advantage of that and just leave their stuff lying around at all times of the week.
This person wanted to make sure that the culprit was aware that they knew the rules and were willing to help him out this one time.
After a long hard day, sometimes all you want is that 15-minute break where you can grab yourself a candy bar or a bag of chips and relax. You don’t need anything else stressing you out.
But, it can be frustrating when the machine decides to take your money and not give you what you want. So, this person decided to leave a note for the guy who fills the vending machine to let them know their feelings on this situation.
After experiencing a certain thing over and over again, sometimes people just get tired and frustrated. This person took a creative method to solve the problem, though. They left the culprit this sweet, little note.
They even included picture diagrams, so the offender can really understand why others are so frustrated with them. Still, we’re not sure that leaving it on the cup of tea was the best idea.
Explaining it for You
Sometimes, no matter what you do, you will get sick when you’re at work. This can be embarrassing and leave you in situations that people talk about over and over again. When this happens, there may be times that you can’t quite make it to where you need to go.
So, while we understand where this person is coming from, it’s also a good opportunity for them to show a little compassion rather than posting a passive-aggressive note about the situation.
We See You
Most places of work have some sort of video surveillance in them. This means that you cannot get away with much of anything, and this person’s note proves it. It seems that somebody has been leaving trash and food in the sink for others to pick up.
At least this person didn’t really call them out the first time through, but there’s clearly a chance that the culprit’s identity could eventually come out.
Just a Little Suggestion
We can definitely understand the frustration that comes when having to clean up after other people — especially when it’s not really that difficult to rinse off a dish and put it in the sink.
But, this person took their frustration out in a whole different way with this unique and quite artistic note. It was a little passive-aggressive and rude, but it still gets the point across.
A lot of organizational skills and guidelines can be put in place to make sure everything stays fresh and clean. One of these most often used is the dating of food within the refrigerator.
This person, though, felt some sort of way and wanted to be a little passive-aggressive as well as sarcastic when it came to the note left on the fridge. Nonetheless, it’s kind of humorous, we have to admit!
Many office jobs are required to utilize copiers or printers on a daily basis. Sometimes, those machines aren’t necessarily the newest and have quite a few glitches. This person took offense to that and felt they needed to leave a note for everyone.
They may have thought utilizing a little bit of humor would cushion the blow of the truth bombs that came out of this note. But, they also didn’t leave it signed, so this is kind of a rude and passive-aggressive way of handling a situation.
Some jobs require a lot of quiet and patience for the workers to concentrate on what they’re doing. Programming is definitely one of those. But, the other people in this office building decided to have a little fun with these focused programmers.
Even still, if you want to make sure that people enter a room quietly, maybe just ask them to please enter quietly next time.
So, you know you work in a place with a bunch of sarcastic people when you put up a simple note like this, and this is what happens. The notice is simple and not altogether rude, but even still, it seems to be a little condescending.
However, the people that responded to the note aren’t helping the situation either. Maybe this is something they should bring up at the next office meeting. We probably would have reacted the same way to this note.
Leave My Stuff Alone
Sometimes, it’s nice to have your own personal things at work. Many places have little break rooms, so having your own coffee mug can be a nice touch and take you outside your stressful job for a few seconds.
But, you also open yourself up to people touching your things. This person just wanted to leave a note to keep people from doing that, and her sarcastic workmates had to retaliate.
Like with everything else, there are people that get super attached to certain things at their desks. For some, it’s a paperweight, and for others, it’s a coffee mug. For this person, apparently, it’s a pen.
We kind of understand because it seems that pens always disappear. But, threatening to take someone’s soul seems a little bit of a steep price for someone that just walked off with some ink.
Follow the Trail
It’s always nice when you’re going to be out of the office to leave a note so that people coming to see you know that you’re not there. This guy did that, but unfortunately, the rest of his teammates wanted to be a little childish.
So, they kept the note going almost like it was a treasure hunt. We would have loved to see the look on this guy’s face when he returned to his office. We bet he got a little bit of a chuckle!
Sometimes, when office buildings are remodeled, they move stuff around. To understand that things are going to be continually moving, there are notes left behind — like this one that says the “printer is here temporarily.”
Of course, someone in a passive-aggressive way went a little philosophical and left a sticky note behind. Though they do have a point, it seems a little too much for this type of atmosphere.
Holding it Hostage
In response to someone who’s super possessive of their pens, this person adopted a new way of returning the pen. Of course, it’s humorous, but it seems a little bit childish as well.
They know it’s messed up because they even say in the note not to notify HR or management. So, if that’s how they felt, why would they even take the risk of leaving this note behind?
For those living in a house with more than one person or working in a place that has a kitchen for the staff, it can be pretty annoying to walk in and find dishes in the sink. No one wants to be the person who continually has to clean up after other people.
So, this individual decided to be a little artistic when they left their note behind. This is actually quite clever and a little humorous — though we’re sure the people that were leaving the dishes didn’t find it quite so funny. We hope the note drove the point home, though!
Do As I Say!
It’s one thing to create a new system in an office and leave notes behind with instructions. If you’re going to do this, though, you need to make sure that the note is not contradictory to something that’s occurring in this situation.
This person left this note, and the rest of the staff wanted to make sure they understood that someone was being a little hypocritical in laying out the new rules. After all, the note was secured on the wall using thumbtacks.
Sometimes, it’s fun to add a bit of humor to the work environment. So, having fun little notes up on the walls and everything can actually inspire a little bit of pride and help build staff relations.
But, when you leave a note like this, you’re kind of opening yourself up for a lot of sarcasm and semi-rude messages. Take, for instance, this one — which we think is pretty darn witty!
What Is Your Name?
So, when you bring food or beverages to work and place them in the refrigerator, you’re often concerned as to whether or not your coworkers will take your stuff. That’s why the original Dave here left his green tea in the fridge along with a note written on masking tape.
Unfortunately, his name is pretty common and so, it may not have been the solution he was really looking for. The other Dave left a priceless note behind, and though some may find it rude, we definitely find it funny.
When you work in small companies, sometimes, it’s not as easy to replace broken equipment as it is in a larger company. So, oftentimes, you have to deal with broken printers and other technology until new ones can be found or purchased.
So, this person was just trying to save a little bit of life with this busted printer. Though the message is a little short and possibly a bit rude, it still gets the point across.
Learning the Hard Way
Whenever you think something is being kept a secret, you’re probably wrong. Someone always seems to know, no matter how hard you try to hide it. If they never reveal it, that’s all well and good. But if they leave a note to let you know…
Well, you’re fine, depending on who reads it. But we assume that this note was probably seen by people that would be very judgmental about it. There were probably some very unhappy kids in this situation.
Give Me The Money
Even kids have to write somewhat passive-aggressive notes at some point. Thing is, they may write it to an odd recipient. This kid felt that the tooth fairy was taking a little too long to get their money to them, so they wrote a letter.
It’s not quite as friendly as letters that are written to Santa Claus, is it? Well, at least the kid was slightly apologetic about it. We may never know if the tooth fairy stepped up and did her job a little faster, but we hope so.
Tell It Like It Is
Usually, we don’t think of politicians as very honest, but there are a few who actually share certain views with us. By reading this note, you can see that we aren’t really alone when we think that the government isn’t focusing on the right priorities.
This guy was clearly of the mind that political priorities were not in the right place. Well, considering the content on display here, we can’t actually disagree.
Science It Up
If something is too hard to explain, you can always leave an informative note. A very informative note, in this case. Maybe this guy is a scientist or something, or maybe he’s just very well informed. Either way, we wonder how many people would actually read something this long.
If they did read it though, they would learn a thing or two about the way air conditioners work. A lot of really interesting information, actually. We ourselves consider ourselves enlightened after reading this note.
In So Many Words
Notes are generally supposed to be short and sweet, but that isn’t something that smart people care about. Or rather, people with degrees tend to explain themselves in more words: got to put all that money to work, right?
But hey, sometimes these long-winded notes are actually a lot more interesting to read than a normal note, and if it is noticeable in such a manner, then people are more likely to pay attention to it, right? That makes it even better at its purpose.
