Passive-aggressiveness explodes, well, creeps across city; what will Marty Walsh do about it?
Jed Hresko forwards this photo of some extreme passive aggressiveness: Somebody peeved at a cardboard box in an alley off Columbus Avenue in the South End spent some serious time explaining how to properly recycle the box - by writing down the directions on two sides of the box itself, because, naturally, whoever put the box out there will come out frequently to admire his or her placement of the box (see the second side of complaining).
Meanwhile, up on Beacon Hill, Mike the Mad Biologist posts a photo of a note somebody posted by his or her front steps to complain about the reprobate who stole the carefully selected gourds that had been artfully placed on those steps (this is the same street with an outbreak of passive-aggressiveness over dog poop).

people to pick through the trash would solve this problem for us at the
cost of higher taxes.
Better solution is to allow
Better solution is to allow everything to be garbage and have automated sorting facilities which pull out all recyclables from the main waste stream.
Any idea what the native language of the writer might be, to produce sentences as fractured as these?

OK, I'll amend
They still teach cursive in BPS.
Why is this funny?
I don't understand why this is funny. I would be upset if someone stole flowers or pumpkins from my stoop and I don't like to find trash in front of my house, or anywhere else. Looks to me like the behavior is not new and these folks are frustrated.
It's not funny
You're right, it is annoying and frustrating.
Writing a note addressed to the thieves and posting it at the scene of the crime, however, seems kind of pointless. That's what I was reacting to.
YOU STOP HATING
Heh, indeed. That was a graffito on the stall when I was a young punk researcher, fresh out of MD/PhD studies.
Quick up with the sharpie!
"The world will be a better place after we all stop hating!" wrote I, and say I again.
