Sorry for the Re-Stealing

Whenever I’m having a bad day, I head over to to find people who are having a much worse day.  I was happy to find a DC-based note yesterday about a bike.  Here’s the text of the note:

“This bike was stolen 2 Fridays ago near 14th and Q.  I am taking it back now.  Sorry for the re-stealing.”

I don’t think this is passive aggressive as much as it is completely awesome.  I’d love to hear the story of the rightful owner of this bike who had it stolen and recovered within 2 weeks.  So mysterious Washingtonian with the yorkie stationery, where are you?

Passive Aggressive Notes About Parking Spaces

Now that the snow is melting and parking on streets is becoming easier by the day, we’re seeing fewer spaces marked with chairs or tables.  Sure, if you spend hours digging out a parking space, it’s understandable that you’d want it to be there when you return, and you’d be angry if someone else parked there.  But this collection of snow parking passive aggressive notes (including a few from the DC area) is just ridiculous.

Here’s hoping that the melting snow and eventual thaw will mellow people out a bit.
