Woman Spreads Happiness: Sticky Notes Bring Smiles To Walmart Shoppers
It’s no secret that retail employees work extremely hard, especially during the craziness of the last few years. Often, we take all that they do for granted. Amy Cook, an Ohio native, recognized that and wanted to do something about it.
She wanted to bring some smiles to the retail workers’ faces. So, she stuck some sweet and humorous notes on random objects throughout a local store. We love that.
Uninstalling And Reinstalling The Past Few Years
We’ve all encountered computer malfunctions in the past. When programs are acting out of line, there’s usually a simple solution to fix them. Uninstall and reinstall it! Easy, right? Or, if it’s a PC, you turn it off and turn it back on (if only we could do that with life).
It’s understandable that anybody would want to uninstall and reinstall the past two years. If only somebody figured it out by now, everything would seem a lot better in hindsight.
Sneezing A Couple Of Months Ago Vs. Sneezing Now
During specific times of the year, sneezing is a common occurrence for a lot of people. But, due to the circumstances of the last few years, whenever you hear a sneeze you likely do a double-take. It’s even worse in public places.
This wonderful woman’s sticky note hit the nail on the head, so to speak. Yes, the world has changed significantly since 2020. Sneezing can be seen as an act of aggression these days, so beware! Obviously, you can sneeze, and some people might just react differently than others.
Remember Social Distancing?
We all are familiar with the term “social distancing” these days. In fact, it’s become a common term in our everyday lingo and daily lives. But, at times, it’s difficult to judge the distance properly, or maybe people are just lazy. Amy is trying to fix this problem!
Aside from the fact that the placement of the sticky note is perfect, it surely made the worker giggle and smile a bit. Hopefully, nobody has had to put this theory into practice, though.
Allergy Season Is Upon Us
Suffering from allergies is one of the worst agitations to deal with, specifically on a daily basis. Unfortunately, many of the symptoms of allergies are similar to another highly contagious thing. With this note, Amy is plainly speaking the truth and we love her for it.
She’s right, though. We’re sure that the workers who came across this funny note could relate to the comment. So, we hope that they stocked up on as much allergy medication as possible.
Let Me Know If You’re Free
Being confined within the walls of your home for months surely drove you crazy. Naturally, you’re likely to come up with some off-the-cuff ideas. But, storming Area 51 to see if they really are storing extraterrestrial beings is one of the wackiest things (especially if you tried to follow through with it).
Don’t let us stop you. If you have enough free time, maybe social distancing is quite easy to do there. Also, make sure you pick up some tin foil so you can make your hats while you’re on the road.
Please Finish This Game Already
All of us probably loved the Jumanji movies, but we didn’t ask to be the lead characters in a live-action version. Needless to say, Amy has the right idea with this note. We’d love to see someone roll doubles and actually complete the game.
Sadly, it didn’t happen in 2020! Maybe the game will end this year, finally. Despite the craziness of the last couple of years, it wouldn’t be a total shock to see random animals running around in the street.
Asking For A Friend…Please Help
Parents were truly one of the big heroes of 2020 because of the global situation. They had to take on teacher roles, not just parenting ones. This big shift proved how much teachers were truly dealing with on a daily basis.
It maybe didn’t take too long for parents to figure out. If anything, it was probably a lesson learned fairly quickly. For anybody who was working and also had to teach their kids, we commend you. After all, teaching and parenting are hard work!
Avoid Beans At All Costs
We all recall when a toilet paper shortage was something to worry about, leaving people with some important decisions to make. One of these decisions was to decide whether or not they should consume fiber-rich foods, such as beans, for dinner.
Amy laid it out for the workers, with her answer being to avoid beans. So, if that person was planning on cooking beans that night, they should probably reconsider and make something else. Amy has a good point!
Drink At 9 AM If You Want
Traveling can be pretty fun. You don’t necessarily have to abide to societal norms and rules. Sleeping in later and doing things you wouldn’t normally do (enjoying a drink early in the day), become acceptable. Hey, when you’re cooped up at home, time feels different, so standard rules don’t really apply.
According to this sticky note, the answer is a resounding “No!” Because you’re not going to work, vacation rules are in full effect. Amy, you’re a rockstar!
Opting For The Big Bottle
Grocery shopping can be fun, but it can also be stressful. When you’re staring at an item wondering if you should get the small or big bottle, you could be standing there for so long trying to make a decision. Due to being financially responsible, the small bottle would probably win.
The times they are changing, however. Buying the big bottle is the way to go since you won’t have to make another trip to the store for awhile. Plus, doing this is a true public service
Sharing Toilet Paper Is Caring
It’s hard to understand the motives behind the people who were hoarding toilet paper back in the day. But, we also weren’t in their exact position. Amy’s hilarious note reminds hoarders that there’s another option.
Employees probably really appreciated this piece of sage advice! And, she also directed them to which aisle the body wash was stored. There are also only so many times that you can reiterate to someone that the toilet paper shipment is delayed.
Flashback To The Good Ol’ Days
Despite the fact that you are extremely cautious (and a major germaphobe) when it comes to washing your hands, we’re sure that the last few years have altered your outlook on the whole thing. At least for us, it was challenging at first.
If we only saw this note sooner, then we might have hopped aboard the train a bit quicker. We think Amy should have her own podcast so she can share all of her amazing advice with us clueless folk.
It’s Not You, It’s Me Needing To Social Distance
We’ve all probably been at that point in our lives where something isn’t working out in a certain relationship and we need to break it off. The past couple of years certainly gave everybody an out, especially when there were stay-at-home orders in place.
So, Amy has the right idea to break things off. If you were in that situation, the other person hopefully wouldn’t argue with you. We admire this humor and appreciate the advice when it comes to relationships!
Milk Products Are At Max Capacity
If you wanted to have friends over during quarantine, that was probably a big challenge and definitely took a hit on your social life. The CDC was putting a huge damper on all of the social events we were looking forward to, but it was all for a solid reason.
We hope Kelis wasn’t offended by Amy’s comment. Unfortunately, you can’t bring all your peeps to the yard because of the strict quarantine rules. Regardless, this note certainly lightened up the mood quite a lot.
Cats Have Needs, Too
Lasagna probably isn’t the best thing for cats to eat, but this note would certainly make anybody smile and give out a small chuckle. Who doesn’t love a tubby Garfield kitty with some attitude?
When Amy was churning out all of these notes, her placement of them was perfect. Surely, she reduced the stress levels of the workers as soon as they came across this hilarious note. Cats are people, too, and they have needs like the rest of us!
Making The Most Out Of The Situation
As we all know, people had to get very creative when faced with the infamous toilet paper shortage. Trying to find even one roll of toilet paper was a challenge and there was no guarantee that you actually would. Amy certainly called out that person!
Luckily, Amy is handling the situation in a light manner. The whole tone would have been different if there was an exclamation point at the end of the note. Coffee filter paper is pretty rough, so using that instead of toilet paper would be less than ideal!
This Is Not The Krusty Krab
Sometimes humor can be dark. It doesn’t always have to be light, fluffy, and cute. Amy tried to mix things up in the freezer section, but her intentions appeared a bit darker than expected. The person who saw that note may have been a tad put off.
However, maybe that’s just how we perceived the note initially. Her notes are always on point and had us chuckling as we were walking down the aisle. People were probably wondering why we were laughing to ourselves!
Oh, So That’s What It’s Used For!
When we were all cooped up inside, we barely saw the sun and didn’t do anything. Many of us suffer from dry skin and Amy had to remind us of what lotion is actually used for. We’re positive she wanted to reference Gollum’s famous line “My precious” from Lord of the Rings.
So, when your skin is as dry as Gollum’s what should you do? You apply lotion to your rough skin! Any lotion from one of those shelves will do the trick, just ask Amy.
Preparing For The Day…Again
During quarantine, all of the days blended together and we didn’t know which day was which. That’s what happens when you’re confined to your home and have nowhere to go and nothing to do. You do the same thing every day and go to bed expecting it will be different the next morning. That’s called insanity, people.
Thank goodness Amy shared some of her humor. The bleak situation would surely drive anybody crazy, so we’re glad that she could relate.
Some Team Rivalry Never Hurt Anybody
Rivalries are a common theme in the world of sports. Amy clearly feels some type of way about the Michigan State Wolverines. The best note writer ever used her famous sticky notepad to convey a rather brutal message about the team.
Everybody probably has some specific feelings about certain sports teams, so this note was likely met with a few laughs. On the other hand, Wolverines fans were probably not happy about Amy’s cheeky note.
Baby Yoda Melts Our Hearts
Toilet paper wasn’t the only hard thing to find in stores, so was milk. For big dairy fans, there was always an abundance of chocolate milk on the shelves. You can still get some vitamins and enjoy the yummy taste.
Nobody can deny baby Yoda. Amy made a good call with this note because everybody loves this cute, little creature. She always knows how to uplift people’s spirits and make them happy. Amy, you’re an angel!
Most people in this world have hopefully seen the classic Tom Hanks’ movie Cast Away. If they hadn’t watched it before, then quarantine was the perfect time to do it. Surely, the movie was relatable because he needed to befriend an inanimate object
Amy’s note timing is impeccable and holds a deeper meaning. We wouldn’t be surprised if many people bought volleyballs and named them during one of the loneliest periods in recent memory. In fact, that may be what helped a lot of people through such a difficult time.
What A Throwback
We can all agree that time seemed to drag on forever during the pandemic. Most people probably stayed at home, waiting for somebody to give them the thumbs up that it was alright to leave their homes and enjoy life again.
Even though Amy’s note is very funny, it’s also extremely accurate. It wouldn’t be too much of a surprise if people heard that in Justin Timberlake’s voice each time a government official went up to speak at a podium.
Cheese To The (Sort Of) Rescue
Wow, Amy really dealt with a lot of toilet paper shortages and had to get creative with her notes. We understand that completely because it was anxiety-inducing and scary to not locate any essential items at the store.
This note of Amy’s might be our favorite one since she’s trying to help the situation. Does she think cheese will make people go to the bathroom less? Uh, we think it does the opposite, but we admire the effort she put in.
It Belongs In The Trash
2020 and 2021 were the primary years where people had to put their lives on hold due to the lockdowns. With that being said, it’s a shared feeling amongst most people that the last two years were a total waste and should be put in the garbage.
We respect Amy’s attempt at humor (yes, it’s pretty funny) and it’s also very accurate. People probably strongly agree with her note and thoughtful sentiment. Amy brings out the best once again!
Following The Proper Guidelines
During the height of the pandemic, there were so many rules regarding people gathering for family events or any social event. So, these classic doormats and welcome signs wouldn’t be looked at the same way.
However, this condition may be good for some households. That max capacity rule might have allowed you to eliminate some of those really annoying people who you don’t like too much, anyways. You now have the perfect excuse to not invite them and avoid any potentially awkward situations.
Nothing Else To Do But Go On Our Phones
According to statistics, the amount of time that people spend on their devices just keeps rising every year. It’s understandable because when you have nothing else to do, of course you’re going to spend most of your days on your phone playing games or scrolling through social media.
So, after the medical advice we’ve been given the past few years, this post is pretty accurate and funny. All those parents who were trapped at home with their kids can attest to these statistics.
A Good Rule To Abide By
Across the world, there are a host of programs targeted towards helping people say no to ilelgal substances. This idea could be solid and potentially help many, many folks who are struggling. Surely, everybody loves chicken nuggets (not vegetarians, but they have their own version of nugs).
Amy sure is onto something there and it surely made the employees and customers laugh. Actually, a t-shirt with this slogan would be amazing and guaranteed to make decent profits. We’d buy it!
You Heard Me, Right?
During quarantine many of us probablyslumped in bed scrolling through YouTube and watched as many viral videos as possible. Of course, these videos made us bust up with laughter and we remember all of the memorable lines.
Amy only thought she would use a note that would be relevant at that particular moment in time. She attached it to the box of headphones which makes it even more fitting. We only hope that the employees enjoyed this humor and got a good laugh out of it,
