Camping gives us a chance to fall back in love with Mother Nature while enjoying the peace and serenity of the great outdoors. Thankfully, the best places to pitch a tent around the world give us the chance to enjoy those places just waiting to be explored.
Boya Lake Provincial Park, Canada
The clarity and color of Boya Lake draws many people to the park every year. Amazingly, the water is warm enough to swim in as well as being the perfect place to enjoy plenty of water sports. There are also plenty of hiking trails to enjoy to take in the view.
Flamenco Beach, Puerto Rico
Believe it or not, but Flamenco Beach is considered to be the most beautiful beach in the world. Pitching a tent hear means that you can wake up to the softness of the sand before spending the day sunbathing, swimming, and snorkeling. Could life get better?
Maasai Mara National Reserve, Kenya
This is one of the best places to enjoy a traditional safari thanks to the incredible number of animals who are all protected within the reserve. Guests can camp alongside the Mara River where you not only get to enjoy the wildlife, but you can hang out with the locals, too.
Yosemite National Park, California
This national park is almost entirely free of electricity and buildings, meaning the only way to enjoy it is to sleep under the stars before hiking through the wilderness. The sights on offer at Yosemite are unlike most others in the world as it’s still so untouched by people.
The best places to pitch a tent around the world can show us all the hidden gems that are waiting for us. The best bit? You’ll probably feel closer to nature than ever before, and experience the wilderness in a whole new way as a result.
It may not always be fun receiving one, but it sure is hilarious seeing it delivered to someone else. We’re speaking, of course, about passive-aggressive notes. Check out these hilarious acts of passive aggression.
We’ve Left the Lemonade Stand
It isn’t the strangest thing in the world to find that certain employees prefer to have their office doors shut. However, this employee clearly didn’t stop and take office culture into account when typing up this note to hang from their door. Apparently someone in the office took offense to the application of the more playful comic sans font, and demanded that a more professional font be used at this prestigious company – even in the event of passive aggressive notes.
Just a Helpful Office Reminder
Maybe there’s a coworker who, when growing up at home, didn’t have to worry about washing dishes. Maybe mom or dad or an older sibling was more than happy to oblige and return the dish good as new. As a result, it might’ve appeared to some people that the dishes just magically washed themselves! Leave it to a passive aggressive note to shatter that reality, and bring someone back to earth where they do have to wash their own dishes.
Oh Really? Yup. Really, Really.
It’s likely that whoever left these Post-it notes had been trying to convince their colleagues to clean up after themselves. Instead of acting like adults and washing their dishes, this person’s coworkers decided to continue leaving their dirty cups laying around. Well, if that’s the way they wanted to play it then drastic action had to be taken. In the form of passive aggressive Post-it notes with the word ‘really’ on them to remind their coworkers to wash up already!
When ‘Wash Me’ Isn’t Enough
It’s tempting, when seeing someone parked illegally, to call the city and have it impounded. Especially if that person is blocking a driveway or something that could save lives in an emergency, such as a fire hydrant. Rather than make the call to impound the vehicle, these good samaritans decided to take a somewhat more merciful approach, at least financially speaking, leaving a message in mud in order to remind the naughty parker to make better choices in the future.
Hey, Programmers Get Scared Too!
Programming is a difficult and tedious task, and any good office researcher understands that any good programmer deep in concentration can become startled and volatile when disrupted. Unfortunately, not everyone is aware of this vital fact and can burst into a programmer’s office asking them how their day is going or offering them extra bagels from lunch. Thankfully, somebody took it upon themselves to leave a note for their ignorant employees not only for the programmer’s safety but for everyone’s.
Is That Enough Milk Yet?
Oh boy, this one is a serious crime. Everyone who’s worked in an office or a shared space understands that fridge space is the most valuable real estate in any workplace. Well it looks as if this Chael thought she’d flex some muscle and take up more space than necessary with her gallon jug of milk. Chael’s workers decided to begin with a joking note, but then put their money where their mouths were by buying her an actual cow.
It’s Just A Friendly Reminder
Everybody loves an office dog – they bring energy and happiness and a fun distraction from a regular work day. They also bring rules though, in this case, those rules can also extend to certain… ahem, unruly work mates as well. For whatever reason, it seemed as though Jay occasionally liked to follow Rusty on his adventures around the office, and maybe even slip out for a minute. Thankfully, that sign reminded everyone that Jay and Rusty needed to stay put.
Let The Hate Flow Through
If it’s not a rude office incident then it seems the number two place to leave a passive aggressive note is on some selfish driver’s car. Looks like someone was in a hurry, or just was practically falling asleep at the wheel, and didn’t move his car all the way into the designated parking spot. One can almost feel the visceral hatred emanating off this note as a fellow commuter decided to leave the perpetrator a not so friendly reminder.
A Party of Only Daves
Here’s a clever idea, make sure that whoever is taking the Lipton green tea is named Dave. If there’s only one Dave in the office then congrats! That Dave gets all the tea. Unfortunately if there’s another Dave in the office then that plan is going to backfire faster than one can shout, “For Dave’s only!” Well whoever made this taped off sign forgot that he shared a name with someone in the office – better think that plan over twice.
But It’s So Darn Shiny
Everyone likes having their own personal office mug, in an office where everything is communal or belongs to the company it’s nice to feel like something belongs to the individual. Well this individual was very protective of their particular mug and wanted to make sure that others were aware not to go messing with their mug. Little did they know that their coworkers had a bit of a rebellious streak and couldn’t resist a mug quite so beautiful and forbidden.
Using the Spoon for Spoons
One might think it couldn’t be difficult to select a spoon out of a drawer of identical spoons, but one would be wrong it appears. Apparently someone was sticking their hands in the spoon drawer, rummaging through each one until they found the perfect spoon to eat their soup with. As a result, this passive aggressive sign was posted, along with a separate larger spoon to select all the other spoons with. Lesson being just pick a darn spoon already!
The Unknown Dangers of Soy
Who knew that soy milk could be so dangerous when brought to work? Well someone got a rude awakening when they found this sign plastered on their soy milk by an anti soy coworker. Apparently some people just can’t wrap their minds around the idea that regular milk is no longer the only option, and that dairy substitutes can be great too! But no, instead they just went ahead and plastered their disgust for soy all over their coworkers containers.
Uh Oh Spoiler Alert Ahead!
Remember when Game of Thrones fever was sweeping the world? There was nothing like staying up to watch a new episode and then dissecting it for the next week or two until the next one came out. Of course, there’s always that one person who wasn’t able to watch the episode the night of and doesn’t want to hear about what happened the night before. Rather than scold everyone numerous times, this clever individual made a sign as a reminder.
More Than a Ketchup Spill
Most people who’ve worked in a restaurant understand that sometimes, when things get a bit chaotic, things slow down a little bit. It shouldn’t be unusual for someone to wait five or ten minutes before being served on a busy shift. But twenty minutes, thirty? That might be pushing it no matter how busy. For this table of hungry customers it wasn’t enough to just get up and leave. They made sure to leave a note detailing how they felt.
This Plumbing Problem Is Hairy
There is a plumbing problem that does seem to affect women far more than it affects men. We’re speaking of course, about the shower drain getting clogged with clumps of long hair. For many men who move in with their wives or girlfriends this discovery can be quite disgusting, particularly if it was totally unexpected. Whoever did this was clearly upset by the build up of his girlfriend’s hair in his shower and wanted her to appreciate his cleaning sacrifice.
He’s Got a Home Now
This is one that easily gets under people’s skin. Whether it’s at home, in the office, or just anywhere really – if you finish the toilet paper then throw the roll in the trash! Well somebody decided that they’d had enough and that a message needed to be left reminding the perpetrator to throw the toilet roll away (in its “home”). What resulted was, rather than being thrown out, a begrudgingly hilarious makeshift house for the lonely leftover toilet paper roll.
That Horribly Creepy Nighttime Van
There’s always something suspicious about a windowless van parked outside our house, especially at night. It’s probably because of all the horror or thriller movies in which the villain hides in a van, stalking and watching his hapless victim. What resulted was, rather than being thrown out, a begrudgingly hilarious makeshift house for the lonely leftover toilet paper roll.
The Subjective Nature of Art
By now most of us have heard the story of some rich art curator buying a banana taped to a wall for a whopping $120,000. After that story went viral it’s likely that someone got the idea of replicating that masterpiece by using the rancid milk in the fridge. Perhaps, like a fine wine, this milk will only become more valuable the longer it stays in the fridge. That, or their coworker will finally wake up and throw it out.
Just a Friendly Roommate Reminder
Here’s a delicate situation: confronting a roommate. Unlike at work there’s no intermediary to help calm things down should problems get out of hand, and roommates can turn a relaxing night at home into a nightmare should they so desire. This housemate was torn between a direct confrontation over dirty dishes or keeping a fun, friendly atmosphere. At the end of the day they found a nice middle path sprinkled with a bit of cheeky humor to keep things light.
Too Good to Let Go
Ah yes, sarcasm, it is the language of many folks. Done correctly it is a hilarious way to express disagreement while still keeping things fun. But like most things in life, it should only be used in moderation. This work place decided it was time to try and reel people in from their sarcastic tendencies, but didn’t check their spelling first. That’s a rookie mistake when you’re working at an office full of people fluent in the language of sarcasm.
When You Need Extra Insurance
The food thief, they are the bane of every office, a scourge whose very presence causes distrust and paranoia to run rampant down each hall and through each cubicle. Things got a little desperate when home cooked lunches kept vanishing and as they say, desperate times call for desperate measures. This employee devised a scheme to ensure that food would remain in place for its rightful owner. The food may be hot but revenge is a dish best served cold.
Better Safe Than Sorry, Right?
After seeing time and time again that others were failing to change the toilet paper after they finished a roll, one employee felt that enough was enough. We really have to commend them as well, this person clearly went out of their way to make a visible and amusing sign as a reminder to others to do their part. Clearly this is an office of comedians, as someone didn’t want to take the risk in spite of the sign’s assurances.
To All the Crappy Neighbors
There’s nothing more heartwarming than an adorable and playful pup just looking for attention. They bring joy to the word and a smile to our faces. Unfortunately that smile quickly fades when we discover that they’ve left little presents on our lawn. Apparently some people in this neighborhood were under the impression that there was a “your lawn, your problem” policy going on, and didn’t want to be responsible for their dogs. It turns out that they were sorely mistaken.
The War of the Coffee
Who knew so many coffee experts could all work together in one building? While that sharing of knowledge is impressive, the downside is that these “connoisseurs” all like their coffee in a particular fashion, and they’re not afraid to say it. Well, they’re afraid to say it to each other’s faces, but they’re not afraid to leave a note to say how they feel. Hopefully, after all the trouble that went into this, they were able to find a compromise.
Brian Finally Makes a Stand
Oh Brian, our heart goes out for you. Sure he didn’t mind washing the dishes a few times, after all people are busy and they have deadlines to hit – it’s likely those things got in the way. After enough times Brian realized that his coworkers were likely taking advantage of his kind nature and decided to set them straight. Hopefully his note was able to clear a few things up, like where the dishwasher is and what it looks like.
Brian Finally Makes a Stand[/caption
Should’ve Double Checked That First
If there’s one take away from leaving a passive aggressive note that can be learned here it’s this: nobody takes seriously someone who hasn’t mastered basic grammar and spelling. Especially in today’s day and age of spell check and other helpful writing tools, there really is no excuse. Rather than focus on the message being delivered, Carolyn decided to put her editing skills to work and remind their accuser that spelling and grammar matters no matter what the situation is.
There’s an Office Food Bandit
Looks like somebody in the office wasn’t too picky about the food they were stealing. Not one, but three separate Post it notes were left on the refrigerator door all begging the office food bandit to please abstain from touching their food. What did this criminal do? Repent? Apologize? Not even close. In a cruel (albeit, pretty hilarious) twist this hungry employee instead demanded that their coworkers mix it up a little bit, and give several more options to steal.
A Brand New Office Odor
One of the most offensive things one can do in an office is introduce a repulsive odor to disrupt the flow of a work day. It’s no secret that many people are particularly sensitive to smell, and it seemed as though this employee was tired of the day old ketchup smell which was invading the work space. We have to admire this person owning up to being passive aggressive, but they were still no match for their ketchup smearing coworker.
The Toilet Needs a Toilet
No matter how many times people hear it, it seems as though some just can’t stop trying to flush paper towels down the toilet. One company decided that they’d had enough of it and, after trying and failing in several ways to grab people’s attention to this problem, came up with a unique solution. Perhaps they thought that by relating people to the toilet it would generate a little sympathy and maybe stop certain individuals from being quite so uncaring.
That Record’s About to End
Ever heard of an earworm? It’s when a lyric or a song is just so darn catchy that one can’t help but sing it over and over again. Looks like for this group of Disney lovers, Frozen was simply chalk full of earworms, getting to the point where the office had to create a group competition to stop the songs from being sung. The only problem, just looking at the sign makes us want to start singing, “LET IT GOOO!!”
Don’t You Dare Do It
There is something about being told not to do something that just makes doing it all the more satisfying. It’s likely that had the microwave had a simple “out of order” sign on it, nobody would’ve given it a second glance. Looks like for this group of Disney lovers, Frozen was simply chalk full of earworms, getting to the point where the office had to create a group competition to stop the songs from being sung. The only problem, just looking at the sign makes us want to start singing, “LET IT GOOO!!”
Stuck in the Friend Zone
There’s nothing like someone’s dirty mind to make everyone’s life more interesting. One employee wanted to leave a friendly and helpful reminder to their coworkers to always leave dates on the cans of food that they were eating. Of course, this ended up backfiring in a hilarious way after another employee couldn’t resist the urge to leave a hilarious joke. Hopefully this person’s dating life with people is much better than their attempts to date the cans in the office.
Making Sure Everyone Else Knows
This appears to be one of those jokes that just got way out of hand. Who could’ve guessed that it would all start with a few people forgetting to flush a toilet. Well the joke was on whoever was trying to make sure that people took a few basic steps to leave the stall ready for the next person. After one or two people started leaving check marks everyone else began bringing pens into the stall to join the fun.
Which One Is for Debbie?
This is what happens when an office discovers who has been stealing bites out of everybody else’s lunch. Looks like Debbie got caught red handed diving into food that she didn’t bring and as a result her coworkers took new steps to make sure that Debbie would never again make the same mistakes. Poor Debbie, but this is what happens when you go taking other people’s food. Maybe next time she’ll think twice before she grabs someone else’s delicious meal.
No This Is Definitely Working!
Ah yes the impatient person who needs to print something. We’ve all encountered a person like this whether he or she is furiously honking in bumper to bumper traffic, non stop smashing the crosswalk button, or, as is the case here, unable to wait for the necessary time for the printer to finish its job. With a little tongue in cheek humor, a “concerned” employee decided to give this person a boost, reminding them that the endless pushing does work.
That Printer Is Definitely Jammin’
Jamming printers have been one of the greatest office nuisances for as long as there have been both printers and offices. How is it that something that was meant to make our lives so much easier can also leave us pulling our hair out? With a little tongue in cheek humor, a “concerned” employee decided to give this person a boost, reminding them that the endless pushing does work.
An Important Message to Understand
Some people get pretty protective about their personal property at work, but none quite like this guy. We have to admire how he was able to funnel his rage into something that is arguably a pretty funny joke (at least we hope he meant it as a joke). When asking for someone to put your pens back doesn’t work this seems to be like an appropriate alternative, hopefully, nobody forgot the message and ended up getting their poor souls devoured.
The Work Somehow Piles Up
Running around the office, taking care of business, can sometimes mean that not everyone is sitting at their desks at the moment that you’d like them to be there. For the most part this is okay, but for some people they are simply too essential to be out of their offices for even a brief moment. To drive that point home these coworkers made a series of signs letting their manager know that they weren’t around when they needed them most.
The Office Suddenly Gets Philosophical
Every office has one, the guy who should be sitting amongst his fellow intellectuals waxing prose and praise for the world’s greatest thinkers and artists. Somehow though he found himself at work and now we have to be the ones to listen to him take a simple comment and expand on it causing everyone to roll their eyes. Seems like this office philosopher couldn’t keep to just conversation, reminding everyone that when mentioning something like temporary existence, everything is relative.
The Missing Pen Shows Up
Most people get hundreds of emails a day when working in an office, and most would probably agree that a large percentage of those are nothing but a huge waste of time. So when yet another email was sent about something as silly as a lost pen, someone in the office decided to act. Perhaps they thought that if they were going to get their time wasted then a ransom note wouldn’t be so bad, or they loved the pen.
Wait, What Are the Rules?
In our opinion, there’s nothing funnier than rules that contradict themselves, and this particular office incident had us in tears of laughter. Apparently someone wanted to make it clear that the board on the wall was most certainly not allowed to have thumbtacks in it. How did they post this notice? Why with a thumbtack of course. This was immediately pointed out to them only to create a long exchange of rules which are then immediately broken in hilarious ways.
The Thief Covering Their Tracks
Here we go, another office criminal decides to stick their head into the shared office refrigerator and grab something that didn’t belong to them. It’s beyond annoying to the people who just had their stuff stolen from them, a fact that perhaps this thief recognized and wanted to rectify themselves. As a result, the paper copy of a bottle of Red Bull was placed into the freezer. It’s not going to trick anybody, but maybe it will cause a smile.
A Funeral for a Cricket
Just when office shenanigans seemed like they couldn’t get any more strange, a group of characters at one company decided to throw an impromptu memorial for a dead cricket that they found. As a result, the paper copy of a bottle of Red Bull was placed into the freezer. It’s not going to trick anybody, but maybe it will cause a smile.
Nothing Worse Than Spoiled Milk
It’s fair to say that, at this point, everyone knows that milk spoils if it’s not left in a cold environment like the refrigerator. It appears then, that this person decided that if they were going to throw down the gauntlet with an obnoxious, passive aggressive note, then they just had to up the ante. This talented artist and comedian decided to create a little poster which showed the spoiled milk, reinforcing to everyone the importance of closing the door.
It’s the Old Telephone Museum
Not that having an old phone on the wall is a waste of space or anything, but for some companies, it can damage the image they’re trying to project. In this day and age many companies want to show that they are ahead of the technological curve, and having a landline on the wall tends to contradict that message. After having their complaints ignored, this office worker knew exactly how to make the old telephone work to their company’s advantage.
Please, Just Take a Number
Not everybody likes constructive criticism but many feel they need it in order to be the best they can possibly be at their jobs. Well not this person, who felt that they were doing just fine and they didn’t need to hear whatever bogus opinions their clients or coworkers had about them. That’s where this little contraption comes in handy. We’re not sure if it’s real or fake but we definitely wouldn’t want to be the first to find out.
Just Asking the Obvious Question
Sometimes the most obvious questions are also the ones that are most frequently overlooked. In the case of this office, it was the office manager making it clear to the employees that they are to only use one microwave at a time since using two apparently would trip the breaker and cause an office-wide blackout. If that was the case, and if using two microwaves was so risky then someone had to ask, why bother even having two microwaves?
The Mystery Hair Just Hanging
Not everything is what it always seems. Here we have a classic case of something that looks like one thing when it is actually another. After having been ignored by the cleaning crew under the assumption that it was just a crack in the wall, someone decided to step forward and explain to the world what was really going on. In reality that “wall crack” was a hair that had somehow gotten up there and had been hanging six months!
This Is an Intense Office
Alright not this again, something that belongs to one person, or to the office as a whole, suddenly goes missing. Guess that means it’s time to get up and start asking around again. But wait, this is no ordinary theft, it’s a kidnapping! Whoever took this Mr. Potato Head wanted to let the office know that they meant business as well, leaving an incredibly creepy ransom note. Looks like whoever works here better keep an eye on all their stuff.
It’s a Big Font Problem
Some people have pet peeves that go far beyond passive-aggressive notes. In the case of this individual, it was the “whimsical” font that used to tell employees not to use the coffee maker. Normally we wouldn’t care about something so minute in detail but, in this particular scenario, we have to agree with whoever wrote the second note. Something about this ridiculous font makes both the message harder to read, and, more than likely, the note harder to obey.
The Most Alarmed Door Ever
Some people just have the most creative imaginations! In this case, the thought of a door being alarmed when someone tried to push it open was too comical to ignore. This funny employee made sure that everyone understood that the alarmed door was not to be taken lightly, just in case the first sign didn’t quite do the job. We don’t know where these people are working but it’s folks like them that make coming to work that much better!
Staying Inside the Lines
We all know the frustration behind a note like this. After driving around in a parking lot for what feels like hours there suddenly appears to be a spot open and available! Upon closer inspection it seems as though one overzealous driver has decided to take up two spots instead of one. While this note is hilarious, we’re not sure if this person already had this note with them or if they went home, made it, and drove it back.
What’s With All the Labeling?
There’s no doubt that it’s frustrating when, after tediously preparing a delicious lunch at home to bring to work, some hungry coworker gets “confused” and decides to take it for themselves. As such, employees at this office decided that from now on, everyone was going to label their food. But there’s always one in every office who just can’t take the rules seriously and decided to play a little prank on his coworkers, leaving a note laughing at the labels.
Ode to the Soap Thief
This is one of those stories that become the office legend that gets passed down from coworker to coworker. After it was discovered that someone had stolen all the dish soap, one enraged employee left a long note railing against the thoughtless coworker. This was followed up by an even more creative note, a poem about the soap that got stolen. Finally, these letters descended into a conversation about Margaret Thatcher and the pros and cons of various political systems.
Mama Isn’t Here to Clean
As yes, the office sink. A place where battles are fought and lost as stubborn employees refuse to accept that their workplace is a shared area where they are expected by one another to act and behave like responsible adults. After receiving numerous complaints management decided to break the cycle by reminding everyone of one simple fact: that they are big boys and girls who’ve left their parents’ house and should know by now how to clean up after themselves.
Here Comes the Office Rebel
A lot of people growing up have a rebellious streak. Usually they grow out of it and become a respectable adult ready to join society. Every now and again, one encounters an individual who shrugs off society’s rules and does whatever he or she wants. In the case of an office birthday cake, rather than wait for candles and singing, this person went ahead and helped themselves to a large slice, leaving an ominous note behind as their only clue.
And the Lord Then Commanded…
When the office’s Diet Cokes start disappearing one after the other there’s only one thing left for the concerned employee to do, leave a picture of Jesus to instill some religious guilt in the office coworkers. Unfortunately when you engage in a battle of scripture there’s always the chance that you’ll encounter the random theologist. Turns out that this coworker knew a thing or two about Christianity and left a counter note which justified the taking of the refreshing beverage.
The World’s Worst Goodbye Party
Sometimes a coworker is so beloved around the office that everyone starts to think that they’ll be working together forever. So when they find a new opportunity and move on it can feel like getting stabbed in the back. At least that was the sentiment around this office. Rather than using words to express their feelings the office decided to surprise their coworker with a cake that said it all, and a warning to never come show their face again.
Nobody Orders Steve Jobs Around
When invoking the name of Jobs it’s important to be sensitive. Not only was Steve Jobs a business tycoon, he was also a revolutionary inventor who completely changed the world. So when someone’s saying not to print big jobs they are clearly throwing down the gauntlet. Right? Well they certainly were in this office and people weren’t about to take that lying down. So to answer that challenge a large picture of Steve Jobs was hung as a fierce rebuttal.
Life Is More Than Money
It’s always refreshing when people try and mix up a mundane notice. Even when something like ‘out of order’ could suffice, some people would rather put a smile on their coworkers’ faces by adding just a little extra pizazz to everyday occurrences. In this case the sign ‘I’m Broke’ followed by the cheeky ‘but I’m rich with experience’ no doubt put a smile on at least a few people’s faces… until they realized they’re going to have to hold it.
