Real notes left for British Milkmen

  • Dear Milkman, I’ve just had a baby, please leave another one.
  • Cancel one pint after the day after today.
  • Please don’t leave any more milk. All they do is drink it.
  • Milkman, please close the gate behind you because the birds keep pecking the tops off the milk.
  • Sorry about yesterday’s note. I didn’t mean one egg and a dozen pints, but the other way round.
  • When you leave my milk knock on my bedroom window and wake me because I want you to give me a hand to turn the mattress.
  • Please knock. My TV’s broken down and I missed last night’s Coronation Street . If you saw it, will you tell me what happened over a cup of tea.
  • Please send me a form for cheap milk, for I have a baby two months old and did not know about it until a neighbour told me.
  • From now on please leave two pints every other day and one pint on the days in between, except Wednesdays and Saturdays when I don’t want any


  • Please leave no milk today. When I say today, I mean tomorrow, for I wrote this note yesterday.
  • When you leave the milk please put the coal on the boiler, let dog out and put newspaper inside the screen door. PS. Don’t leave any milk.
  • No milk. Please do not leave milk at No. 14 either as he is dead until further notice.
