Hi Rob, my name is xxxx and I work in the xxxxxxx department at Java
City. We have just come upon your web site and I must say we are laughing
our asses off!!! I'm sure there are some who might be angry when they find
out about the signs but others of us think you are probably the funniest
guy we've ever read about. We are equally impressed with your Downtown
Plaza prank and I hope you continue to pull these pranks whenever you can.
Kudos to you for giving me a smile and laugh at the start of the day!!
Uh,oh. I guess the gig is up eh? Well, this is my first confrontation
with an actual prankee. So, I probably stepped on some toes over there. I
would love love love to know how the story broke in your offices.
I guess my first question is...was the original sign in response to a
lawsuit? That is what everyone asks me.
I am glad you liked it! I am really glad you wrote. I could probably send
you one if you want it for your archives.
One of trainers had a friend who was searching for our website, which we
don't have, but when he did the search your web site came up. When he
checked it out he was dying to tell his friend here because he is one of
the guys who makes those types of signs. He found it very humorous and ran
over to the cafe next door to see if the sign was still there. We are
pretty certain that they remain in all of the cafes that you've put them in
except for the corporate cafe which we've just taken down to have a laugh
about. It was all just discovered this morning, so no lawsuits yet anyway!
: ) We'd love to keep them up, but probably can't for "business" reasons.
Don't worry though, not many here know and I don't think it's going to
cause any problems. We all think it's quite funny actually. Good luck,
and I hope to see more pranks on your site!!
Oh, I missed the question about how the sign came about. Yes, it was in
response to a lawsuit. Unfortunately there probably are people out there
who need signs on how to wipe there ass too so they don't sue us for
improper use of our toilet paper. After the whole McDonald's thing people
were complaining of being burnt by the coffee when slapping their lids on.
I guess it saves our butt to put the appropriate way of how to lid a cup.
It's pretty sad really!
So, the day is coming to an end and most of the Corporate Office knows of
the signs and it looks like it was an overall success. Everyone has gotten
a good laugh about the whole thing. People have even talked about having a
shirt made saying "I've Seen The Sign" on one side and your sign printed on
the other. I'm sure you'll receive more emails from people other than
myself to credit you for your work. It seems the comment of most is that
we need to give you a job!
You may use whatever you like for your website! If shirts get made I'll be
sure you get one. Have a good weekend.
Sorry to bug you again. I guess there are a few selected here who do not
have the sense of humor that most of us do, so I would appreciate it if you
didn't use my name. You may say something about the correspondence between
us if you would like. I've been here for quite a while and like working
here so it's best to stay anonymous to keep my job. Thanks so much.
I'll be sure to let you know of any opportunities that arise. I'm sure the
cafes have no idea who you are so your drinks should be fine! You can say
I'm from the Corporate Offices. I should be pretty safe. I'm not even
sure that anything would come of it, but I guess you never can be too
careful. Especially on Friday the 13th. So I must ask, were you always a
prankster with your friends too, or is this strictly an artist thing? As
for your question earlier regarding our web site...no one really knows why
we don't have one. It will remain another one of the mysteries of the
back to Java City Lid Instructions
