This picture is one reason you should never go to your grandparents’ house unprepared and without the right clothing. This is what happens if you forget your pajamas and ask your grandma for some to wear. You should keep in mind that this type of pajamas was trending when they were very young. So go prepared, or you will end up like this guy in the picture with an oversized granny nightgown.
It ‘s funny how one word can mean two different things to two people, and they are only one generation apart. Maybe this grandpa never saw himself as a lovebird and deliberately misunderstood what he was called. Or maybe he completely forgot what that word really means, or he was just fooling with the young person. But for all we know, he knew exactly what his grandchild meant and was just mocking him. Nobody really knows the minds of older people.
Not the Face
If you want to have a Facetime chat with your grandparents, you should teach them how to do it first. Or you will end up like this guy who had to have a sweet face chat with his grandfather’s ear. And it is not easy to get older people to change their habits if they have been doing things a certain way for years. That was what he had learned to do since the first time he had to speak to someone on the phone, how else will he know?
This is a thing that all grandparents can do when it comes to spending money on all types of accessories. This grandmother simply does not throw away anything, and as you can see this picture, not even the iPhone container. This grandmother saved some money and thought this container looks nice and beautiful enough to be used for the butter. Thank you, Apple, for this thoughtful and modern butter dish that can be used by grandmas.
Stay Away From Me
This grandmother tries everything to avoid being alone with her neighbor. He is clearly interested in her and maybe in love with her too. Sometimes when people are in an awkward situation or are pushed into a corner, they will say the first thing that comes to mind. And the best thing this grandmother could say when the neighbor wanted to get acquainted again is that she does not eat. That was after he asked her if she had eaten dinner yet.
Save Some Space
There is a lesson we all need to learn. What is that lesson? Do not visit your grandparents around lunchtime after you’ve eaten. We all know that grandmas always believe that their children do not feed their grandchildren properly. And grannies are determined that they will fix that. In this picture, you can clearly see what we mean with that; you just can’t win when it comes to feeding time at grandma’s place. It will always feel like there is just too much food at their house.
With a harmful addiction, this grandfather had to get something to help himself control it. And who would have guessed the doctor had a sense of humor and prescribed pills that look like the addiction. This is a sure way to cope with the illnesses that come with old age that need to be treated promptly. But that works only for certain old age problems and illnesses, and not everybody will benefit from it.
This grandma thought that what she had was a beautiful rock that could be used to decorate her home. Hopefully, it did not attract an army of ants, because then she would have known what it really was she was hoarding. On the other hand, if you do not know how to tell her it is some candy, you should just ask her for it. We all know that grandparents do not really like to say no, and the dilemma would be resolved.
Getting Too Old For This
This will never get old, and even grandpas still use this when they are getting overwhelmed or just to add some humor. When this grandpa was bitten by a spider, he mumbled that he is too old for the responsibility of being Spiderman. At least one thing older people seem to gain a lot of is humor, and that helps to soften the blow of aging even when their minds are still sharp as a tack.
When this person asked their grandma for a pair of Converse sneakers, he should have said exactly what he meant and wanted. As you can see in the picture, that is not what he expected while grandma knew exactly what she made for him. When it comes to grandparents and modern clothing, you should be more specific and explain what you want, or you’re in for a surprise. Remember, they might know everything, but they grew up in a different era.
Back to the Future
When it comes to terms for modern technology as well as the names of new gadgets popping up everywhere, it is kryptonite to some of the older generations. Yes, this is the weakness of the older people, and we need to be patient with them when talking about it around them. Like this grandma, when her grandchild brought out an iPad, she thought it was a cutting board. Imagine how confused they are sometimes while we are talking high-tech in front of them.
Only the Best
This is how grandmothers’ minds work when it comes to feeding their grandchildren, no matter where they go. This person received a visit from their grandma, and the first thing that came out of her suitcase was food. And not just food, but the best they can afford and more than enough to last the grandchild for quite some time to come. She just wanted to make the most important things come first, and that is to feed them.
Like a Child
When it comes to new and modern gadgets, grandparents are like little children with a new toy, but they do not know how it works. They will annoy whoever is nearby with their new smartphones and want to explore all they can do with it. That is why this grandpa wanted his grandchild to help him so he can see who he is calling. But sometimes grandparents find new ways to use technology that we didn’t even think of!
The movie The Terminator came out when many of today’s grandparents were still young enough to have seen it. Even the actors in this movie are grandparents now. Maybe that is why this grandpa does not trust the robot vacuum. Or he simply just believes that certain jobs were meant for people and not machines that do not even know what dust is. But that is the case with most older people; they do not trust machines to do the job.
Rules Do Not Apply
That is the case when it comes to grandparents and grandchildren and the strict rules for their children. In this picture, the grandchild was allowed inside the refrigerator just so grandma could share it with everyone. Now, where are the rules that applied for that grandchild’s parent now, and how is it not enforced? But as we know, the rules are only applicable between parents and children, and that is the extent.
Why Did You Do It?
This is certainly the question that this cat wants to ask the grandchild who got their grandma a camera phone. This might be good for people, but for animals, it turns into a nightmare when grandmas get camera phones for Christmas or their birthday. As you can see in this picture, the poor cat is dressed up, and with a happy birthday sign, his picture is sent into the world. What will the lady cats say? Oh, the humiliation.
The Myth Is Confirmed
Some grandchildren think their grandparents know everything, and this might just confirm that theory. Not all grandparents are uninformed when it comes to technology and modern gadgets, as it is clear in this picture. Who would have thought that if you asked your grandmother for the rice to dry out your cell phone, this would happen? A container that was set aside with rice in it, especially for the occasion of drying out your wet phone!
To Thy Aid
When you get older, there are certain things that might slow down, like your steps, or your hearing. And for that, you will be able to get some devices that might help you to still enjoy life to the fullest. But according to this story, the problem of lack of hearing might be a blessing in disguise if your ears can not handle the noise. This grandfather probably felt sorry for those around him.
When this grandchild asks for a packet of onion and sour cream chips, they get literally just that. The grandma bought them a packet of Funions and a container of sour cream according to their request. Of course, the child meant chips that are flavored with sour cream and onion, but that is why you need to explain to the older people what you want and not just assume they understand. We must remember that they grew up in another era and some things are still new to them.
This grandpa does not need a therapist to sort out the little problems in his marriage; he does it the old fashioned way. When his wife is cross with him and gives him the silent treatment, he has a remedy for that. He just tightens the pickle jars so she will have to talk to him if she wants to get it open. And that is how you do it folks, no professionals that will charge you a lot of money, just simple tricks.
The Walking Circus
When it comes to grandchildren, grandparents are the most patient people you can find in this world. If you look at this picture, you can understand why. The granddaughter is making a circus out of her grandpa, and he just sits there. As long as she enjoys herself and as long as she is happy, this grandpa is also happy…no matter what the words say. But in the end, it is really fun to be a grandfather…and a circus.
In this picture, the grandchildren were making fun of their grandpa while he was taking a nap. But they did not know what was coming for them, and he got back at least one of them with a good retaliation. One would always wonder what went through the young ones’ minds when he found out that the revenge was sweet. And there is also the other one of that gang that still needs to be repaid.
Take My Seat
This guy might look like a grandpa, but he is still very much alive and definitely not an elderly person. When someone offers him a place to sit because he’s an older person, this grandpa showed them what he still can do. If you ever looked for an example of why you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, this is the one you were looking for. Nobody will offer this grandpa a seat for the elderly ever again in a public place.
They Never Say No
This is one of the best things, and that is to have grandparents who never say no to their grandchildren. And that mostly happens when mom and dad are not around, and you want more than just the one candy. The biggest problem here is that your hands are not big enough to hold more than what can fit in them… like the whole bag of candy. Maybe next time it will be better if granny takes a handful and gives it to you before mom comes.
That is Not How We do it
Anybody would have felt the same as this pelican did after he got a good scolding, and clearly, this animal deeply regretted what he did. He could not even look this grandma in the face after that tirade. That is what happens to a pelican who bites a grandma and thinks he will get away with it. This poor animal will not bite anybody again ever in his life after this lesson of humiliation from this sassy granny.
If you want to disappear in your own home, this is how you do it, and it’s not even high-tech. Did this grandmother need a break from the daily responsibilities and decide to take that break without going far? The next time you cannot find your grandma, start looking down, you might just find her right under your nose. And that is how grandmas use their superpower to vanish in plain sight.
When Your Eyes Let You Down
This grandmother got a John Cena bracelet, but she was entirely under the impression it was one of Jesus. How this could have happened, we might never know, but this is the problem with aging. Your eyes will just one day begin to let you down, and you will not even know it. Hopefully, someone informed her of this misunderstanding so she will not feel embarrassed, or maybe she took it in stride.
It Is Well Done
When Jean let his phone fall in the water, he asked the grandfather to put it in rice to dry it out. But this is what he did; as you can see in the picture, he cooked it with the rice to get it dry. Perhaps next time Jean will give clear instructions on what he meant – put wet electronics in rice to dry it out. This is not something the grandfather should know; at least he left a note with the cooked cell phone.
Keep the Fire Burning
This grandma takes a photo of her husband every time they go to In-N-Out Burger and texts it to her grandchild. If you look at the history of this fast food joint, the owners started it when they were newlywed. And these grandparents are just following tradition with a photo to keep the marriage going, just like the owners. This grandma must be an undying romantic, and that is why she keeps celebrating love.
That’s How It’s Done
When this grandpa got the invitation to come to a wedding with a medieval theme, he took it upon himself to come well-dressed. And he literally included everything medieval in his costume from the clothing to the transportation of the time period. There was even space to put down his drink without the need for a table. I just wonder if he got a chance to dance and if he could find a dancing partner.
This is How it Works
Sometimes small children might think that grandparents are there to be their playmates, or else to put them back in their place. This grandma just found a way out of being a playmate, even if she was there for her grandchild. She just showed a child how things work in this life, and one of them is to keep respect for the elderly. And maybe that is a lesson we all need to learn, to not take the older people for granted.
Who Are They?
These grandparents came to a costume party as snowmen, and they looked like characters from a scary movie. But what was the intention, did they try to dress up as some family of Olaf the Snowman? At least it was an original idea and must have taken them quite some effort to get those costumes made. Who says that grandparents can’t be original and innovative – and even scary – at the same time?
Thou Shall Not Pass
This is how seriously a grandma takes her job as a security guard at the ATM while her loved ones are drawing money. Maybe this is the solution for crime in the world, to shame those who take others’ hard-earned money. As you can see in the picture, this grandma is ready for anything or anyone that might come to take their money. Not that she will be able to stop the thief, but her heart is in the right place.
Old Tech Efficiency
This was how you listened to music when this grandpa was young, and it still is a very effective way. It might be a little bit heavier than the MP3 players or smartphones nowadays, but it still gets the job done. He might also have turned a lot of young heads with his old ways of listening to his music in a public place. But who cares? He was happy, and everyone around him thought it was funny, so everybody was happy.
Here Comes the Bride
Some people believe that you can be too old to ever love again. These people claim that once you reach a certain age, you have missed the boat and could never find true love. If ever there was evidence that this is simply not the case, it would have to be the following Tweet. This woman isn’t just a grandmother – she’s a great grandmother. And even at this stage of her life, she ended up falling in love with someone and is enjoying her wedding day.
A College Collage
Any grandparent is bound to be proud the day that they find out one of their grandkids has enrolled into college. It’s a huge moment for any family and is a testament to how far they have come in life. However, when so many of your grandchildren have attended university, the amount of pride and happiness you must feel is unfathomable. This heartwarming photo sees a granddad posing in front of a number of very meaningful baseball caps.
A Sport for All Ages
It’s not just parents who should be able to enjoy watching their kids play sports, whether it is for a local club or for their school. Grandparents should also be welcome for the ride and this grandad loves nothing more than watching his grandkids play soccer. That’s not all though, he also cares a lot about his teammates and can’t help but gasp whenever one of the players is down and potentially injured. This is one grandparent who cares for all kids.
Suited and Booted
These photos just go to show that you can never be too old to be incredibly romantic. It seems like this couple’s relationship just gets better with time. Even though this grandmother had to spend her 57th anniversary in a hospital bed, this didn’t mean she didn’t get to celebrate with her beloved husband. And he certainly made the most of the situation, dressing up in a tux and bringing flowers to her. This man has plenty of tricks up his sleeve.
A Way With Words
It is no secret that grandparents absolutely adore playing Scrabble. This classic word game is believed to improve cognitive strength and generally improves one’s vocabulary. However, the following grandparent seems to want to up the difficulty by changing the rules so that you can only use the names of their grandkids. If this was to work though, you’d probably have to have a lot of descendants to even stand a chance of winning.
The Dynamic Duo
It is well-documented that having a pet in later life can be hugely beneficial for one’s emotional and mental wellbeing. Having a close bond with an animal can only help us and it seems like this grandfather is loving spending time with his new dog. Moreover, the photos that his caregiver took of him with his new pooch are absolutely heartwarming, to say the very least. If this does not light up your day, we honestly don’t know what will.
Some Memories Aren’t Worth Sharing
Grandparents tend to not make the best decisions when it comes to social media. As soon as they discover a new facility on Facebook, they are all over it in a heartbeat. However, that doesn’t mean that they know how to use it properly. Take this grandmother, for example, who was excited to share memories on the social media platform. What she didn’t realize though is that there are some memories that others simply want to forget.
Grandma’s Always Right
While many of us enjoy having a relationship with our grandparents and do a good job of staying in touch with them, there is no denying that conversations with them aren’t always that easy. In fact, it can be easy to get into all sorts of silly arguments with your grandparents. Take this guy, for example, who spent a quarter of an hour arguing with his grandma about how old he is. Little did he realize though that he had got his own age wrong.
Age Is Nothing but a Number
Many grandparents do a good job of showering their grandkids with love and presents. Whenever the kid’s birthday comes around, it is likely that Grandma and Grandpa will be quick to spoil them with all sorts of treats. At the very least, they are bound to provide a sweet birthday card, maybe even with some money in it. The following grandparent though wasn’t exactly interested in finding the perfect card for their grandkid’s big day. Hey, it’s the thought that counts.
Tweet Texting – That’s a New One!
It has become a common occurrence for grandparents to not really understand the dynamics of social media. How often have you seen a grandparent try to engage in a conversation with someone online that probably should have happened in their inbox? However, this grandparent managed to take things to a whole new level. They thought that they were texting their grandkid when in reality, they were writing a tweet! Someone needs to give them a 101 on texting.
It can often feel like our grandparents are from another planet. After all, we did grow up in completely different eras and as a result, our way of thinking might be different. Moreover, grandparents can often be stuck in their ways and unfamiliar with what’s new and current in the world. Take these grandparents for example, who don’t completely understand what their grandkid is telling them. Nevertheless, they are happy to nod along and will support them no matter what.
No Glass Slippers Here
Every woman at some point in their life has wished that they could have some sort of fairytale happy ending. As in, they are the best-dressed person at the party, a handsome man swoops them off their feet and rides off into the sunset with her. That’s why so many girls want parties that are in the theme of iconic Disney princesses, such as Cinderella. That’s what this girl wanted. However, her grandmother managed to grant her wish in the most unconventional way imaginable.
There is no denying that from time to time, there are going to be some awkward exchanges between a grandparent and their grandkid. The difference in age definitely has a part to play in it. But at the end of the day, it is the parent’s job to teach their children tact and it seems like this kid hasn’t been taught any. Rule number one – never ask any woman if they are pregnant. We’ll give this kid a pass because they were probably very young.
The Gift That Keeps on Giving
Grandparents are renowned for bestowing plenty of experience and wisdom on their grandkids. However, that’s not all that they are good for. They also have a tendency to spoil them rotten with all sorts of gifts, both essential and non-essential. When this young lady told her grandma that she loved her sneakers, she quickly obliged and made sure she had a matching pair. This is clear proof that grandmothers are the absolute best in the world.
Bingo Hard or Bingo Home
It has become quite the stereotype that elderly people enjoy playing Bingo. To be fair, the majority of contestants and a variety of Bingo venues are retired and 70+. It makes you wonder, why don’t more young people play this numbers game? It sure is a lot of fun! The following person though had a bone to pick with this game, as well as her own grandmother. She believes that she loves Bingo more than her own granddaughter. Maybe it’s a joke.
Sometimes it seems like your grandparents have no filter and say the first thing that pops into their head. While waiting in a hospital waiting room, an older lady was overheard saying something that tickled the whole waiting room. Upon seeing a skinny girl from the valley walk in, Grandma pipes up and says “this hospital doesn’t fill me with confidence if they can’t even stop the skeletons from escaping from the morgue.” Grandma behave!
Cute and Clueless
Imagine this guy’s surprise when he saw the gift that his daughter’s great grandmother gave her for Chrismas! We’re not quite sure if his grandmother is utterly clueless or was just trying to be funny… Eventually, we decided that great-grandma must be sweet, innocent, and clueless, mainly because we like to sleep at night, but also because of the lack of emojis that would usually follow such a crass joke.
Tell it Like it Is Grandma!
Once upon a time, grandparents were known for their more conservative nature, but as we can see from this one girl’s experience, times have changed! Grandma seems very proud of her sexual prowess, married or not. If you’d said this to your parents at that age, we’re pretty sure they’d encourage this ideal of celibacy until marriage, whether they believed in it or not. But not grandma. She tells it like it is!
Tweeting With Pride
This grandma quickly saw the irony of her grandson defiantly lying down in the road right on top of a no parking sign. Luckily for us, she quickly snapped a picture of him and shared it for all the world to see. That’s one pretty media-savvy Grandma. We’re particularly impressed with the correct usage of hashtags. This Grandma navigates Twitter like a queen, but we hope she moved her grandson from the road before sharing her pic.
If at First You Don’t Succeed…
Don’t you just love the resilience of the older generation? People tend to give up too easily these days when they’re knocked down. Not this grandpa. It looks like he was quite determined to make his voice recognition work. He gave the voice to text service several tries before deciding to send the birthday message anyway, errors and all. Luckily, thanks to your Facebook profile, they knew who the message was from grandpa Chuck.
A Simplified Version
While some grandparents seem to be excelling at using technology and social media, others still get confused with the remote control for the TV. However, this grandfather quickly learned which buttons he needed and which ones were only put there to confuse. If we’re honest with ourselves, we don’t know what half of the buttons on our TV remote do either, so maybe we’ll take a leaf out of grandpa’s book and tape up the unused ones!
She’s Still Got It
Take a look at this grandma doing some of the more advanced yoga poses. At age 83, she could give women a quarter of her age a run for their money. Some of these poses take years of training to master and grandma has certainly had a lot of time to practice. We think it’s amazing that she’s managed to stay in such great shape over the years. Just wow!
Grandma Knows Best
You don’t get to grandma’s age without learning some valuable life lessons about how to treat people. This grandma was quick to school her granddaughter on how she should be nice to people, even if they’re mean to her. Obviously having no clue who this internationally famous pop star is, grandma publicly told her granddaughter to be nice to her. We think grandma’s right, Rihanna doesn’t deserve your hate, even if she doesn’t return your calls.
Coming Out to Grandma
The uncle that’s featured in this story obviously waited a long time to come out to his family and may have been dreading telling grandma, as the matriarchal head of the family. Well, it turns out there was no need to worry as grandma is more astute than people give her credit for and knew all along. She probably rehearsed this clever and witty response for years, waiting for this very moment.
If You Don’t Know, Just Ask
Many people get embarrassed when they don’t understand a joke or reference and oftentimes will laugh or nod knowingly anyway. But not the grandpa featured here. He relies on his grandchildren to keep him up with all the latest textspeak. Grandpa proves that people only get better with age by being honest and ridiculously cute when he asks the grandkids what YOLO means so that he can look cool in front of all of his friends.
This is how things were done in their time when this grandmother was still young, when everything was personal. Even the service providers and the doctors had personal service to their clients and patients. Maybe this grandmother just wanted to show the next owner of the house how much she enjoyed staying there. And what better way to do that than with pictures of a real person living in the house. That is what a home is, full of loving people.
And They Will Be One
This is a good portrayal of the real reason why people get married, and that is that they will be one. Maybe we should take a lesson from these grandparents and let marriage be what it should be and even show it. With this image of two people together after half a century, and wearing the same color every day, you can do it. Thank you, grandparents, for a good example you are showing to the new generation, we will learn.
Find the Right Frequency
This is what these grandparents were asking when they got their smartphone. To what frequency should I tune to get the internet? They thought that they needed to find the internet station as in the time of short band radios. When you give new tech to older people like grandparents, please explain to them the current technology. This will just embarrass them when they are not among their own people and they get stuck.
With this picture from the grandparents on Valentine’s day, this can only mean one thing, and that is to stick together. Together in the tub or the washing machine or the dryer, they did everything together and stayed together through the wet and the dry. It is a fun lesson for others, which is that through the good and the bad they just stuck together. And they do not need a lot of space to enjoy Valentine’s day together.
One For the Road
Grandparents know that children are not allowed to eat too much sweet food, like candy and chocolates. And they also know that parents try to keep it away from their children, so that they don’t have to deal with a child on a sugar-high. That is what happened in this picture when their grandchild had to go home, they just had to let her have one last bite. They cannot help but feel sorry for their poor little grandchildren.
For the Attention of Everyone
Notes are pretty commonplace when it comes to office life. Think about it — offices are a mishmash of people with different habits and behaviors, and everyone is sharing multiple spaces. Plus, there’s bound to be an office nitpicker who gets irritated if people don’t follow the rules.
Whoever left this note was clearly sick of encountering other people’s business. It seems that the office really got behind this note, with everyone drawing a tick to show their agreement, or perhaps they’re just taking the note too literally…
Sorry to Say
This unusual and hilarious note was left on a street light in someone’s neighborhood, and addressed to everyone that lives there. It seems that an enthusiastic and romantic husband decided to put a love note on his wife’s car. Unfortunately for him — and his wife — he accidentally left the note on a different car entirely.
It’s nice that this man has taken the time to tell everyone about his late-night snafu. We’re especially glad he clarified that he’s not in love with anyone else…aside from his wife, of course.
Drinks for Daves
Here we have a battle of the notes, where one note leaver outsmarted another. It seems that someone is stealing Dave’s green tea, prompting Dave to leave a passive-aggressive note asking, “Is your name Dave?”
It seems that Dave should have just written a note reading “Don’t drink my green tea” because another Dave decided to get in on the action. Dave number two then leaves his own note, pointing out the loophole in original Dave’s message.
Tic Tac Strikes Again
Some notes don’t need a lot of detail or information. Some notes just need to tell someone that a horse named Tic Tac urinated on their vehicle. After all, what else could this note owner write? Presumably, the owner of this pee-soaked car doesn’t want more details about how or why a passing horse decided to use their vehicle as a horsey bathroom.
We’re pleased to see that Tic Tac’s owner, Stan, decided to leave $50 to contribute towards a thorough car wash.
A Very Close Call
When you park in somebody’s reserved parking space, there are a range of reactions they might have. They might assume it was a mistake, politely inform you the next day, and get on with their lives.
Or, they might become incensed with you, plan their revenge, and then leave you a warning note telling you what your fate would be should you park there again. This note threatens revenge via Vaseline and tow truck. This person means business.
He Will Run Out
Sometimes, one note just isn’t enough, especially when it comes to that one big cat that tricks people into letting him out. This cat owner started off with a note that simply told guests not to let the cats out. That mustn’t have been enough, because then they added another note with further warning — these cats will run!
Finally, a third note warns that the big cat will pretend to be uninterested but not to fall for his tricks. Hopefully, there aren’t more notes underneath the door handle.
Truth Be Told
This note is excellent. It tells the reader exactly what happened in order for it to be created, and shares the note writer’s thought process, too. It seems that someone hit another vehicle, and then decided to leave a note to come clean about it.
However, in that situation, people usually leave their contact details so that they can compensate the other driver for any damage. That doesn’t seem to be the plan here, because whoever wrote this note judged the other driver to be rich enough already.
Do Not Feed the Programmers
There are lots of creative ways to tell people not to enter your workspace. You could ask them nicely, or give a practical reason for them not to enter. But, would that grab their attention? Would it properly prepare them for the workspace they’re intent on entering?
This note definitely makes people stop before entering the room. Much like zoo animals, the creatures behind this door need lots of warning, and some calming music to get used to guests.
All About the Font
As font sticklers ourselves, we’re thrilled that someone posted this note in response to another note. After all, why have one note when you can have two? It seems that someone in a Fortune 500 company (lest we forget) posted this sign telling people to keep the door closed.
It’s worth pointing out that they used six exclamation points in this first note. In response, someone else from the company rightly criticized their use of the Comic Sans font, because it should be banned.
Committing to Quitting
When it comes to resignation notes, maybe the bosses at a bunch of chain restaurants are excited when one of their disgruntled employees finally dares to leave. Perhaps these employers are eagerly awaiting the next sympathy card, furiously scrawled note, or hastily drawn doodle. It’s bound to break up the day.
For her resignation note, Bella drew a picture of her newly unemployed face and a proud declaration that she’s “a quitter.” You go get it, Bella!
Sometimes, You Just Hafta
This is an excellent note because you can hear exactly how the person who wrote it sounds. It seems that Tom is handing in his two weeks’ notice, and has transferred his nervousness to the letter he left for boss Doug.
Or, maybe Tom is just sick and tired of whatever field he’s been working in, and wants Doug to know that he just doesn’t care. The fact that Tom opens his resignation letter with “yyyyeah” suggests that perhaps Doug has been expecting it.
Sorry for Your Loss
Here’s yet another creative resignation letter, this time from Alex, who definitely has a sense of humor. Everyone who works a part-time job knows that you’re supposed to give your boss two weeks’ notice when you decide to leave. However, many workers have lost interest by the time they decide actually to leave.
By then, they aren’t bothered if their resignation note seems cheeky — they just want out of there! We commend this sympathy card; full points for creativity!
An Icy Message
This note left for a stranger, by a stranger, doesn’t even require a pen and paper! This creative note maker made use of their environment, creating a note on top of the very thing they’re complaining about.
After all, what’s worse than someone leaving their car in a selfish or dangerous place? And how else can you tell them how annoying they are? Hopefully, there wasn’t more snow by the time this car owner made their way back to their vehicle.
Make Your Choice
In horror franchise Saw, John Kramer — or Jigsaw — communicates with his test subjects using Billy the puppet, a tricycle riding ventriloquist’s dummy (creepy, right)? The owner of this car has decided to use Billy to speak to the traffic warden, and has left tons of parking tickets scattered along his windshield.
Presumably, the game is that the traffic warden has to search through the pile of tickets until they find the one that allows the car to park in that area. Fun!
Say it With Cake
We’ve already seen some great resignation notes, but this one really takes the cake (see what we did there)? This airport worker — also known as Mr. Cake — decided to quit his job using the medium of cake. Not only that, but Mr. Cake also used his cake resignation to advertise his cake business, and to give the gift of cake.
We’re impressed by the eloquent language on this cake resignation, as well as the very precise icing. We wish Mr. Cake all the best in his future cake endeavors!
Spelling it Out
Is there anything more annoying than someone parking their car right in the middle of the assigned spaces in a parking lot? Obviously, clearly, and blatantly, the painted lines in parking lots show where cars are supposed to go.
They’re designed that way so the maximum amount of cars can safely fit in an allocated area. It’s not rocket science. For some drivers, this doesn’t seem to matter. Thankfully, someone left a note in chalk for this selfish person.
And Now My Watch Begins
Honestly, we’re surprised that notes like this aren’t more common. In the age of streaming, everyone is watching TV shows at different times, and for some shows in particular, that’s a big risk.
Of course, when Game of Thrones was still airing every week, people discussed each episode at length the very next day. Clearly, whoever left this note needed everyone around them to know that they were not interested in hearing any show related conversation.
Who Let the Dogs Out?
When it comes to pets, and keeping them safe, notes can be essential. Some households need everyone to keep the toilet lid down so that their cat won’t drink from the toilet bowl. Others need everyone to tidy their food scraps away, so their hungry Labrador doesn’t sweep up the leftovers.
In this household, the door needs to stay closed in order to keep Rusty, the AC, and Jay inside. We think at least one of those is an animal.
Dealing Vigilante Justice
From the look of this note, we can confidently say that somebody is trying to wriggle their way out of jury service. In order to do this, people have to seem unwell, be struggling in their personal lives, be an expert on the subject at hand, or just have a bad attitude.
This jury duty dodger is declaring that they plan to make a costume before having the opportunity to “deal vigilante justice unto those evildoers.” Good job all around.
Optimus Prime Says So
One of the best ways to make a note a little less threatening is to include a fictional character. Telling someone their parking is “horrible” is one thing, but having a fictional extraterrestrial species of sentient self-configuring modular robot do it, is another.
What we’re saying is, as long as you can draw a rudimentary approximation of a fictional character, you can get away with saying whatever you want. Even better, write, “[the character] disapproves,” and they’ll take the blame, rather than you.
Framing the Problem
We have to hand it to this note maker, as their creative frame note is reusable, to the point, and quite funny. Basically, this note is made up of a piece of paper with a hole cut out of the center.
When placed on top of some dirty dishes, it perfectly frames the problem at hand, making it impossible to ignore. The caption makes this note even better, as it makes the whole thing feel like an anti-inspirational poster.
Spoons and Scoops Only
Isn’t is strange to get a sneak peek into other people’s realities? Here we are, all living our lives while some people, somewhere, use a spoon scoop to get a spoon from a drawer. Don’t get us wrong — we totally understand the hygiene reasons behind not wanting a bunch of grimy fingers on your cutlery.
But, a spoon scoop? Really? There’s bound to be a better way to store and access spoons than this. We’d bet all of our spoons on it.
An Insincere Apology
We applaud whoever wrote this resignation letter to a boss that sounds absolutely awful. This understandably disgruntled former employee has used this note to express all of her pent up emotion, and included a hefty dose of sarcasm for good measure.
It seems that this person’s boss has been criticizing the fact that they had to skip work due to a family emergency. Our favorite part of this angry masterpiece is the final sentence. Mic drop, and out.
Just Messing With You
Sometimes, the best things in life are the simplest. That’s why we adore this small but effective note left by a stranger. It’s not a huge essay, it’s not a detailed message — it’s just a piece of yellow card pretending to be a parking ticket. It’s a prank note, and we have to praise that.
We hope that whoever found this on their windshield repurposed it and put it on somebody else’s. This little rectangle card could bring so much happiness — or fear.
Not Great With Words
In the case of this stripped-back note, an employee was told they had to submit a letter of resignation in order to leave their job. Either this person doesn’t have much to say, or they didn’t enjoy their time working there. Whatever happened, this letter tells us all we need to know.
Perhaps this note should have included the date, or the person’s name. But, hey — they were asked for a resignation letter, and they submitted one. Job done.
Asking for It
Offices are tricky places to navigate. You have to share various working spaces, though you probably have a pleasant enough rapport with most people in there. Still, your coworkers aren’t your friends, and they do have some pretty irritating habits.
This person left a rather threatening note in the shared office kitchen, declaring, “People know not to touch my mug.” Well, the people had something to say about that, and posted a note of their own. Completely deserved and beautifully executed.
Time for the Truth
With the amount of passive-aggressive resignation notes on this list, we’re starting to feel a little sorry for the bosses involved. Just kidding — we absolutely don’t. These bosses deserve these emotionally fraught resignations, and much worse, to be honest.
The person who wrote this note has gone for a sarcastic tone that matches their burning rage. They’ve kindly spelled out all the ways they are a great employee, and then signed off with an insincere “Good luck with everything.”
Carly Rae Is Calling
In 2012, pop star Carly Rae Jepson released catchy hit “Call My Maybe,” and ever since then, people have been using its lyrics in their own notes and jokes. It’s a testament to the song that people keep switching its lyrics to suit their own needs.
It seems that “Hey I just met you, and this is crazy” is just the ideal opening line for all sorts of situations. In this case, the lyric is used to chastise someone for blocking their neighbor’s driveway.
Ghosts of Grumpy Cat
The original Grumpy Cat was a feline named Tardar Sauce, with an underbite and a case of dwarfism. This caused the cat’s face to look permanently grumpy, birthing thousands of memes, lolcats, and parodies. Sadly, the world had to say goodbye to Grumpy Cat in 2019, but her unamused spirit lives on.
Here she is in a note left for yet another bad driver. As we’ve learned, including a fictional character in an angry note is a good strategy for not causing a real fight.
The Perfect Couch Guest
This scrawled note is a little difficult to make out, but it’s worth it to see what Andy — the guy on the couch — has to say. It seems that Andy, who is likely a complete stranger, spent the night on someone’s couch and then woke up and got to work.
Lovely Andy washed the dishes, took out the trash, and even cleaned the stove. Best of all, he drew a picture for his hosts, just to make the whole thing a little weirder.
Obviously Broke Already
In the USA, each state has its own rules for parking. In many cases, people with physical disabilities need to apply for a sticker that they then display in their car. When displayed, this sticker allows them to park closer to buildings, or for free.
This note left for a traffic warden is pleading in its tone. Apparently, this car owner is waiting for their parking sticker in the mail, and constantly receiving parking tickets in the meantime. Hopefully, this warden has a heart.
We Can All Play
When it comes to notes left for strangers, these post-it style “Really?” notes are top quality. Somebody must have left one of these accusing stickies on a dirty cup, and then everyone else in the office decided to join in.
What we want to know is if the first person made a big stack of these notes and then left them lying around for everybody to find. Or, did everyone make their own replicas? Either way, they’re reusable!
Watch Your Tone With Me
The person that wrote this angry note for a stranger was clearly in a pretty bad mood. It almost seems like they had a full-on angry rant with the person in their head, and then transcribed their feelings word for word.
It’s great that people can fit so much emotion into such a small space. With the use of some capital letters and an exclamation point, this person has really communicated how livid they are.
Employees Rise Up
At this point, there should be a hall of fame for employees that have left angry notes for their employers. These workers have had enough, and they’ve spewed out their true feelings on handwritten notes, with no fear of the repercussions.
The employee that wrote this note was sick of waiting for his boss to arrive, and furious that he didn’t even receive a phone call. Upon writing and posting his note, the worker then left the shop and went home.
The Important Details
This note left for a stranger is both detailed and familiar. Upon reading it, you almost can’t help but like the person who wrote it. Think about it — this person could have hit someone’s mailbox and just posted their name and number. That wouldn’t be much fun, would it?
Thankfully, this person was dodging a squirrel, and filled his neighbor in on that very important detail. How could you be mad at property damage when a sweet, little squirrel is involved?
What a Deal!
It seems like no matter where you shop these days, there is some laminated tag that includes all the essential details about the product in question. Like how much it weighs, how much it can store and how many years warranty it has, etc.
Never in our lives though have we seen an anonymous message from an absolute stranger added to this kind of tag. Also, it appears that it is a sneaky little resignation note from whoever used to work here.
Here’s a Tip for You!
In many countries, it is common courtesy to add a tip after receiving at least on par service from a waiter or waitress. It is becoming increasingly common though for customers to provide all kinds of complaints about the seemingly poor service they received as opposed to some kind of gratuity fee.
Truth be told though, we can’t argue with the following customer. They were right to call out the water for only look at his wife the entire time.
Good to Know Dude
When using a public bathroom, the last thing we want to receive is some kind of a note from an anonymous source. Sure, coworkers are technically not strangers, but this guy had no idea who wrote the following note!
Sometimes, it’s just a case of “out of sight, out of mind.” There is something about the red-colored lettering that really gives us a sweat. But we are sure that the guy just conveniently had a red pen at his disposal.
Don’t you just hate it when someone has the hots for you in class and they can’t even muster up the courage to say “hi” in person? Instead, they have to write some nonsense on a note. And then, you might not even find out who wrote the darn thing.
We can imagine Barney Stinson from How I Met Your Mother writing this kind of cheesy pickup line on a note. But the likelihood is that it was just some random classmate of this poor victim.
More Like, Raggamuffin
Receiving a note from a stranger is one thing, but to have one of your belongings returned to you with it is another thing entirely. Imagine if you returned home one day, only to find that your doorknob had been removed, preventing you from entering your own house!
That’s what happened when this person got home one day. It turns out that the person who returned it chewed it off because they thought it was a muffin!
That Should Teach ‘Em
Ladies and gentlemen here is a little piece of advice that we are sure will help you avoid a turn of unfortunate situations along the way, especially if you drive a car: don’t leave your car door open and unattended.
Otherwise, some crazy stranger might come along, put something that belongs to them all over your car furniture and write a note to confirm this! We decided to blur out the keyword in this note, so please use your imagination!
What a Puzzling Note
It seems like the following person discovered this note while pouring out their soul to someone while sitting at a bar one night. Apparently, the poor individual admitted that they didn’t have it all figured out and that they needed some serious direction in life.
Thankfully, a stranger came along and left this note, suggesting that they weren’t as lost as they thought. Also, they suggested with some cheeky graphics that maybe they were the missing piece to the puzzle that is this person’s life.
Rise of the Machines
We are not entirely sure if this note qualifies to be included in this list. After all, can a printer qualify as a stranger? It seems like this printer explicitly wants people to know that it was them who typed out the note.
Of course, we know better and know that some co-worker simply masked themselves as the printer, and gave them a letter of “resignation” after the printer stopped working. It’s pretty clever, but also a bit too long.
Cutest Dropper of Eaves Ever
Sometimes, we just need a little pick-me-up to get back on our feet and get on with our lives. If this young lady doesn’t feel better after receiving this note from someone, we don’t know what will.
There will come a time when someone overhears you in a public setting complaining how much your life sucks. Let’s hope that they have the compassion to simply write an anonymous note to you to reassure you that everything will be OK.
Sometimes, we might have no choice but to throw in the towel and say, “enough is enough, I need to quit this job.” There might be times when someone at work is making you have a terrible time and upper management simply won’t do anything about it.
So what can you do other than decide to move on? At least this guy had the common courtesy to alert the next customer that someone would be with them shortly.
We don’t know for sure why this person felt like drawing a cartoon dinosaur would be enough to qualify as their resignation letter.
Maybe it was a way of symbolizing how they felt like they had been working at the company for millions of years and now was the time for the Ice Age – aka, time to freeze this period of their lives. We don’t know. All we do know is that this is kind of funny and not as brutal as what he could have written.
Pay it Forward
Sometimes, strangers aren’t trying to passive-aggressively complain at you and sometimes, not even trying to ask you out on a date. On the rarest of occasions, they might be simply trying to extend some help to you and give you some kindness to help you improve your life just a little bit.
This person was kind enough to attach some money to the note in order for the recipient to “pay it forward.” Kudos to them for trusting this person they don’t even know!
To be fair, even though these maintenance guys provided their names after their time spent at this person’s home, they still qualify as strangers, which makes this note qualify for this list!
At first, their notes on the maintenance seemed to be pretty formal and sensible. This was until they mentioned the word “monster” and threw the customer for a loop! What do you mean that there is a monster in the attic?!
From One Bookworm to Another
Do you know what’s still an awesome place to meet someone with who you could potentially go out on a date? That’s right folks, the library. After all, they don’t just call it “hitting the books” for nothing.
There is nothing more stimulating than finding someone who is intelligent and knows their way with words. Imagine opening a book you liked to find a note with the following anonymous message! We’d be running around the library as quickly as possible!
Secret Admirer Alert
When anyone positively comments on your for your looks, you know that your day is going to improve considerably from that day onward. This woman couldn’t believe her luck when she returned to her car to find this beautiful note.
Sure, she’s married with kids and is deeply in love with her husband. But still, it’s nice to get compliments wherever they might come from. It’s good to know that strangers still find her attractive!
Too Much Information
For some reason, some people think that rules don’t apply to them. These people think that they can explain their way out of things, somehow pulling out a reason that tops all others. The person who left this note must be one of those people because they pre-emptively explained their way around a parking ticket.
Don’t get us wrong — we recognize that a bathroom trip can be an urgent matter. However, part of us hopes this person got a ticket.
This Is a Community Announcement
The first thing we notice about this note left for strangers is the strange font choice. Why would such a message be delivered in such a font? Doesn’t this look more like the pamphlet you get when you enter a funeral home?
Anyway, this note was posted by a group of neighbors who needed to inform another neighbor that they were getting more than they bargained for. It turns out the frosted glass in that person’s bathroom wasn’t precisely installed correctly.
Why Do You Come Here?
We’ll admit that we laughed out loud when we read this note for a stranger. We have so many questions. The person who wrote this note apparently goes to Costa every day for a cup of coffee, and absolutely detests the coffee-making skills (or non-skills) of one of the baristas.
For some reason (who knows what), this person felt the need to leave a note for this barista, informing them of just how awful they are at their job.
And I’m Out
Of all the resignation notes we’ve seen so far, this one goes pretty easy on the employer at hand. It appears that employee Elizabeth has decided to leave her part-time job, and got a little creative when crafting her resignation letter.
Politely, Elizabeth begins by thanking her employer for the “wonderful time” she had working there. Less politely, she draws a microphone on the floor, and explains that it’s a mic drop. And with that, she’s out.
The Book Bandit
This note left for strangers is a tale of two parts, starting off upbeat and uplifting, and ending on a more combative tone. Sam has put together a friendly neighbor library, where people can share their books for free. That all sounds lovely so far.
However, as a post-script, Sam tells readers of his note that a lady driving a gold Sedan keeps robbing the library blind, taking every single book. Sam threatens mean glares. We got you, Sam.
