Minor Annoyances (Vol 2)

I went through a phase of looking up card messages online and using the stupidest ones I could find.

This backfired on me when I wrote a really sappy and saccharine message in this girls leaving card because I thought it was funny, and then it turned out she was just moving to another team in the same company and then thought I secretly fancied her the whole time.

I once signed my own card in the office when it was passed to me to contribute. 

"To Tommy, best of luck in the new job! From Tommy".

It went around the other 2/3 rds of the office after and no one clocked it.

I just add a nob under the name of the person I like the least.

My mate Al just writes "Have a good one, Al" in every card that comes across his desk, assuming it's a birthday card and not bothering to check who it's for.

Thus far it's made it into a couple of retirement cards (not too ill-fitting), several leaving cards (less so) and one unfortunate sympathy card.

Yes! Kisses under other people's names is something I started doing a few years ago. Throw in the occasional other person's mobile number and it can be a good laugh.

Amazing how having the zip on the other side / buying a woman's garment completely throws you off. I had a jacket like this a couple of years ago and I had to get my 14yo to zip it up for me, which they then followed by asking, "Should I put you in an old people's home now I'm doing your clothes up for you?"

Funny.

Slightly sociopathic.

I mean, I’ll occasionally squeeze the odd “love from” in between the message and the name but I’m not about breaking up happy homes!

That's actually sort of why buttons/zips are on the other side for women's clothes; when buttoned clothes were first introduced, rich men would have dressed themselves, while rich women had servants to do it, so buttons were positioned accordingly.
