Note:

Dear Perfect Stranger,

How are you doing today? Are you studying hard or hardly studying? This time of year can be very stressful so I hope this card serves as a little pick-me-up during your day. I hear that laughter is a great stress reliever so here’s a little joke for you:

A drill sergeant just chewed out one of his cadets, and as he was walking away, he turned to the cadet and said, “I guess when I die you’ll come and dance on my grave.”

The cadet replied, “Not me Sarge. I promised myself that when I got out of the Army I’d never stand in another line.” Hahaha. Not funny enough? Here’s another one:

Bill and Hillary Clinton went out to dinner and when the waiter came to take their order, he asked Hillary how she wanted her steak, she replied “medium.” Then the waiter said, “How about your vegetable?” Hillary replied, “Oh, he can order for himself.”

Enjoy!

Sincerely,

Your friendly picker upper

P.S. Sorry for the horrible drawing.

Regardless of the level of embarrassment I endured when leaving the last note in the lobby, I thought it was a good idea. What I found out was that students more than being appreciative of the note asked the question “Who does that?” Well my friends, the answer to that question is someone who has learned to appreciate the little things in life and is willing to do what it takes to get a smile. Sure, you may find the notes stupid and a waste, but if you’re making fun of the note with your friend, are you not laughing? Bam! Mission accomplished. I don’t worry about how the  note influences you just that the note does influence you.

With that noted, I’d like to say that despite the negativity I’m finding students are projecting when reading the notes, I am not going to be discouraged. There have been plenty of responses and comments on this blog that are positive. Yes, many of these have come from notes left outside of the student bubble but that will not stop my notes from getting into student hands. Apologies students. If you don’t love the note, show it to your friend, make some jokes, laugh a little at my expense. It’s all good. As long as you are smiling I’m happy.
