Ah, the company breakroom. It’s where employees find solace from a stressful workday, after dealing with clients all morning long while the boss has been breathing down your neck. Once lunchtime rolls around, you’re ready to unwind, have something to eat, and zone the f*ck out.

What are the ways that can help your awful breakroom experience feel like a sanctuary? Earbuds, for those podcasts you want to catch up on. Or just simply getting the f*ck out of there and finding a nice, quiet spot outside, away from everyone and everything.

I know we’re all grown adults here but some times you’ve just got to laugh at the ridiculous notes that are left behind. How else are we going to get by throughout the stressful workday?

These 31 break room notes are ridiculously entertaining:

When the soap is taken, the ransom notes come out.
