I love my job, I really do, but Monday’s suck hairy dogs balls. I know you’re nodding your head in agreement right now. Hauling ass out of bed…first bus/train ride/traffic jam of the week…crazy people chasing you for work before you have even had your coffee; sometimes you just want to run screaming from the working week before it has even begun. I have found the perfect antidote to Monday painfulness – rude post it flags.
I had my first encounter with a Typo store in Melbourne. Typo is a stationary store under the Cotton On family umbrella. Very cute and quirky; think funky pencil holders, great cards & wrapping paper and notebooks you want to write in. Whilst perusing their wares in the Spencer St Station store, I happened upon two very cool sets of post it flags – one set was polite and sensible, and one set was very rude. Against my better judgment, I purchased the sensible set and have been regretting it for the last month. By sensible, I mean Read, To Do, Important, File, Urgent and Can’t Wait.
Thankfully my flatmate knows me too well and came home with a surprise gift one day! They aren’t exactly appropriate for her very important and heavy regulated office, but I can go to town (within reason, of course). How rude is rude? Idiot, Fuck, Shit, Whatever, Crap and Wank. There is nothing more satisfying than a report landing on my desk and being able to stick a Shit post it on top.

Why you need it: So you too can feel the rush of flagging something with a great big Crap.
