Above and Beyond! Lost and Found: Part 3


Nothing "bad" here; just a final installment of "Lost & Found Week" to remind us there is hope for humanity.

Slow News Day (Guest Signage: Matt DiDonna!)

I imagine there was a lengthy debate at CBS's headquarters as to whether to go with Syria or Scotch Tape to lead the "Breaking News." To be fair, they both start with "s."

Who You Gonna Call?!? (Guest Signage: Erica Johnson!)

This makes me smile for so many reasons. But if I have to pick a favorite, it has to be the "Falls Signage" categorization. 
(the lobster-claw hand is a close second)

"Employee Theft" Redefined

A sign that combines mangled formatting, grammar, and definitions into one wonderful message.

Sasha Baron Cohen's Next Movie: The Employer

This absurdly long job listing makes us wade through too much detail before delivering a wonderful punchline. For your sanity, just skip to the highlighted sections and enjoy random formatting and bad grammar.

So Little to Get Wrong


Simple: The meeting starts at 3:00 p.m. and ends at 5:00 p.m.
Here is the attached agenda:

At least they got the date right...

We'll Schedule the Meeting Tomorrow, I Swear...


An email blast from NYU that raises a serious question:
Is two hours of pastries and coffee really the best cure for procrastination?

Unclear on the Concept (Guest Signage: Chris Arter!)


This company seems confused about two things:
1. The meaning of their name.
2. The importance of faxing in 2013.

Unreliable Reference


Perhaps I'm unclear on the concept. 
But I think that if you don't want HR contacting your personal references (not your past employers, mind you), you may have a bigger problem than a lack of employment.

Profiling




This raises a question: At what point in the polygamous process do you give up on trying to remember names and simply resort to ethnicity?

More is Better! (Guest Post: Matt DiDonna!)

This is what happens when a director of athletics with an inferiority complex realizes that several elite institutions -- including Yale College, Columbia College, and Wesleyan College -- have three L's in their names.

I'll Take Two

"Daily Product" for an unknown price above $0.99? 
Who could ask for anything more?

Getting It Straight (Guest Signage: Kyle Heckman!)

Forget the typos, grammar issues, and lack of punctuation--let's talk alignment: 
You can't criticize someone's steering 
if you can't format a word document.

We're Gonna Need a Bigger Business Card

At least the requirements aren't too bad: just be willing to learn. Oh, I almost forgot: play an instrument, like children, and speak English and two kinds of Chinese fluently. That's a tall order coming from someone who created the word combination: "Please make sure to include, but not limited to, the information listed below in your email."

Restaurant Week Day 5: It Is NYC, After All

I know it's NYC, but that better be diamond-encrusted cheese! 
(This place has so much to offer that I decided to throw the side of cuscus in as a bonus.)

Restaurant Week Day 3: Because the $X.99 Model Is So Cliche



It's not just the random price points that please me; it's the way the pricing is offset just enough to give the illusion that a medium cappuccino is over a dollar more than a large.
