    26 People Who Were Brave Enough To Share Photos Of Very, Very, Very Weird Notes They Found Or Received

    "Hey, I think you're really cute. I've noticed you work at Bed Bath & Beyond, been checking you out for a bit, and I think next time I see your car here, I'm finally gonna go and talk to you, hope this doesn't creep you out." — Secret Admirer

    Warning: This post contains disturbing messages including tones of stalking.

    1. Like this note someone found in a "mailbox" that randomly appeared in a park they frequent.

    "Rita was a fine matchmaker"

    2. This note that says "2 people" that someone found outside their house (where they live with their fiancé). "It was on a little path by our garden facing our windows. We live in the woods with no neighbors. Is this weird, or am I being paranoid?"

    "2 People"

    3. This cryptic message someone found inside their shoe that might be about black magic (according to one other Reddit user).

    a note with strange writing on it

    4. And this Polaroid that isn't a "note" so much as just a very unsettling image of what APPEARS to be a bunch of chickens huddling together?

    5. This truly bone-chilling note someone left on a street pole. It reads: "Notice, while you are reading this, there is a man in one of the windows high above you who is taking your photograph; he will then make a wee model of you and put it with other wee models of other people, then he plays weird games with them."

    6. This REALLY weird and cryptic note that someone's mom found inside a stick of butter after she opened it...

    What looks like ingredients

    ...the EXTRA weird thing is that apparently other people, specifically in the Pennsylvania area, have also found this same note but in things like a box of crackers!

    One redditor even noted that "people keep seeming to find notes like this. Based on some of the stuff I can legibly read, it talks about Saturn Worship, Identity change, Aryan Nations, Elon Musk, Skull N Bones Secret Society, the vaccines... This seems to be some conspiracy shit, it brings up a lot of below-the-surface-level conspiracies. [...] And these notes are seemingly becoming more common, I believe it’s the same text every time on every note."

    7. This note someone found walking to their car that has words like "man in house," "knife," and "gun" in it.

    8. This bizarre note someone got at work.

    a paper with symbols

    9. This oddly specific note that has me asking all kinds of questions.

    "I bet you sweat glitter"

    10. This kinda threatening note that someone's friend found in a cabin. It reads like something out of a horror film, but because I can't help myself, I'd probably open it just out of curiosity.

    "Do not open the attic..."

    11. This creepy note someone found outside their door when they returned home from work. Turns out, it was left by their ex.

    a crinkled up note that says miss me yet?

    12. This message (which is more of a "digital" note LOL) from an AI chatbot that actually invited someone to a random address in New York City, which is NOT sketchy at all. (It's the "Be ready" at the end for me.)

    AI asking person if they walk around earth and have skin and blood
    the address being sent
    "Be ready."

    13. This threatening note a Portland, Oregon man found on his car, at his HOME, after his tires were slashed.

    Note saying you were SO easy to find, Mark, you should drive more carefully

    According to KOIN News, the night before, the car's owner, Mark Holzmann, had been driving into a parking garage and "may have" cut a bicyclist off. Holzmann said, “I don’t know, it’s not like I overtook him, passed him, and turned in front of him. If anything, he was coming up from behind me.” Apparently, the bicyclist then "went from zero to ballistic" and started "yelling, screaming, shouting." Holzmann believes the bicyclist may have found his address through his customized license plate.

    14. This creepy note someone found from a "secret admirer" on their car at night. The note reads: "Hey I think you're really cute. I've noticed you work at Bed Bath & Beyond, been checking you out for a bit, and I think next time I see your car here, I'm finally gonna go and talk to you, hope this doesn't creep you out. — Secret Admirer"

    a crumpled note

    15. This inexplicable message someone found posted on a pole near their home that asks more questions than it answers. Like, even if it's just a paper with some typos...why would someone post it, then?!

    16. This note from a "secret admirer" that someone found on her car...along with a bag containing TEETH. The note reads: "To Lauren, don't frown — you never know who is falling in love with your smile, from your secret admirer."
