Reddit user publishes picture of funny notice
The user Magurdrac shared a picture that was taken in his company. There are two notices on it that comment on each other. The purpose of the top note is to inform the employees that the company toilet * is defective and should not be used.Workplace Custom - Amending / Adding to notices around the office. from r / funny
However, one employee felt provoked by the top note. He referred the message "out of order" ("out of order" or "does not work") to himself, which is why he responded to this alleged insult with a second notice : "I'm not sure if you know who you are with Talking here. Doesn't work? If you don't work at all, my friend. I didn't do anything to you, I just came in here to do my business in peace and then continue to work. Therefore I don't understand why you are looking for a fight. By the way: The toilet is broken. Please fix it. "
The comment is of course meant ironically. But why does anyone answer such an unspectacular notice at all? The answer is hidden in the heading of the Reddit article: It is a tradition of the company . As a response, another notice must be stuck under each notice.

Users react to the notice with a known film quote

I'll show you , which means 'does not work'! " The notice was probably even inspired by this quote.
