Fun with a dry erase board. Fun used in the loosest sense of the word.

There’s a small dry erase board in the stairwell of my office. It was originally placed there so different departments within the building could communicate with one another about times they left. I guess once, somebody locked up when someone else was still in the building and they set off the security alarm. So thus, this very high tech *mediocre* solution was formed.

At first someone got clever with it. They drew “leaving at 6:30  pm” in bubble letters. The next day someone drew a sun. Then the next day, someone drew a butterfly. Then someone erased the “leaving at 6:30″ and drew a stick person with a net catching the butterfly. Now isn’t that precious? Don’t you want to walk in on some random Monday morning to see how someone much more cheerful and happy to be alive than you enjoys the medium of dry erase marker art? For crying out loud.

So a couple months passed and now we’re taking it to a WHOLE new level. Multiple marker colors are involved. Pithy day of the week slogans. Crafty line art drawings. Approximately 50 people trying to “out wit” one another on a 8.5×11 dry erase board. It’s just phenomenal.

I decided to take a week’s worth of photos so y’all can see what I live with on the daily:

Oh good. Great. Let’s start the week with a rhetorical question. And then later someone took it one step further and wrote “Because something has to link Sunday to Tuesday!”

Please keep in mind that it wasn’t sunny that day or for at least 3 days before Tuesday because Florida doesn’t do anything half-assed…if it’s going to be hot, might as well be 10,000 degrees. If it’s going to be rainy, get your ark makin’ tools out because it will rain for days on end.

I honestly don’t even…..why psycho? Why? What’s psycho about it? Why did this person write the N backward?  Why? This sign is a self-fulfilling prophecy because after I read it and tried to make sense of it, I became psychotic. Good call, dry erase board artist.

Yes, Terrestrial Thursday, this makes MUCH more sense. And somebody’s breaking out the fancy markers on this one!

I’m just going to go ahead and presume the misspelling of freaky is intentional.

Now that you’ve seen a week’s worth of dry erase board art, maybe you’ll get inspired enough to drive your OWN coworkers crazy!

This post has been a part of Word Up, Yo!, a vocabulary meme. Go play along!

    I have a dry erase calendar in my office, but I'm the only one who ever writes on it. I wish I had something like that that I could torture people with!

    WTF is terrestrial thursday supposed to mean? I guess you can assume that no aliens or mermaids were in your office that day.

    Your white board at work is weak in comparison to what we have at my work. During our recent office renovations we had several small walls painted with chalkboard paint which essentially turns the wall in to a giant chalk board. We have all sorts of stuf on those boards now. Maybe I should photograph it. I wish it was Freeky Friday though instead of Stupid Wednesday.

    Not only is freaky spelled wrong, the question mark is backwards on Monday.

    –>May I recommend for tomorrow this:

    S.H.I.T.
    So Happy It's Thursday

    See how that goes over.

    Too funny!

  • liz

    i love this! i think you should make a weekly meme. you'd have to think of some catchy phrase about dry erase boards, but i think it could be pretty awesome.

  • Stephanie in Suburbia

    There was some chick in my office who did a quote of the day. I wanted to write on her board "Tell boss I need more work." Man I don't miss working in an office!!

  • KLZ

    I clearly am not putting my own dry erase board to good use. I just keep a list of co-workers who are irritating me. It says nothing about Terrestrial Thursday. Or Extra-Terrestrial Friday.

  • Sarah Mac

    Whoever did Tuesday didn't even bother to erase the backwards question mark from Monday.

    I want a dry erase board for my department!! I will use it to write haikus about staying out of my cube during my lunch break and my thoughts on micromanagement.

    I wish we had something like this in our office. It is so sterile. Heck I only have one thing hanging on my wall. I really need to do something about it. Then again, I work with all guys so they are not really into doing anything interesting at all. I may need to spice it up a bit!

  • Allyson

    It's times like these that I kind of miss working in an office environment. Except that my office was never that much fun or snarky. We had all of the "Why Monday?" without any of the "Freeky Friday"….

    I think you may have rampant dyslexia in your office though. Everyone puts at least one letter or character up that's backward. I hope none of them are accountants…

    And….is there something "freakier" about Freeky than Freaky??

  • Hutch

    If I worked there I would leave intentionally stupid and/or annoying messages. Only in hopes of making it on to your blog of course.

  • Natalie

    Okay, THAT just put my dry erase board to shame! The only thing on my dry erase board now is a grocery list!

  • Crazy Shenanigans

    You should leave a hangman game on there with a few letters crossed out and a few letters filled in and see if anyone plays along! lol
