Anonymous Workplace III (Needs a Copy Editor)

Have you read your work refrigerator lately? I think most workplaces have some kind of sign relating to the fridge being periodically emptied (often an empty threat, in my experience) or expressing pleas for people to do their share of the dishes, stop pilfering someone’s yogurt, etc.

This particular sign earns its spot here not only for the “quotes of irony,” but because of the amazing syntax employed in the “Please remember” sentence. Well said, HR.
