Dear Pokemon Players

A letter from Abby the Lab's Mom:

An apartment manager started this with HIS note to the Pokemon players, but I'm going to add a few things as I totally agree. 

Dear Pokemon Players 

Please get out of my yard. This is private property and not your playground. This Pokemon thing is the silliest thing I have ever seen grown people doing and I have lived through:

Hammer Pants
Crystal Pepsi
Pet Rocks 
The Macerena
10 Seasons of CSI Miami 
Mood Rings
Sea Monkeys
and the Boot Scootin Boogie

Go put your phone down, there's an Irish bar on the corner a block away, go have a beer and interact with an actual human being. Then go adopt a REAL animal to train and play with if you are so inclined.

And please shut the gate on your way out.


  1. Wow! In your YARD?!? That's crazy! Maybe it's a good thing that we have locks on our gates!

    Abby, am with you all the way on this one gal! hugs and wags YAM-aunty xxx

  3. That is just nuts AND rude!!! We have a lock on our gate too. You just never know who is going to try to invade the kingdom:)

  4. Me an'mom agree with Cammie - in you YARD???????? I haf herd my mom talk'bout thoze Pokemon playerz - she sez they need 2 come bak down 2 reality - talk 2 other peepz, face 2 face - interact with society.

  5. Sometimes they are so obsessed they are making bad decisions. I don't understand the intensity. Now if they were staring a cats then it would make sense . . .

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  6. Oh, I saw that on the news! That flyer the apt. manager put up cause all the players were comin' in the courtyard tryin' to catch Pokemons! BOL! The youngins are lol....that is if they lifted their faces out of their phones long enough to read the sign....

    pees: Abby, I thinks you could sit guard at the gate and ask for bacon in order to enter....Bacon Toll would be PAWSOME!

  7. Did they actually come into your yard? How rude!

    1. Yes, neighbor kids cutting through our back yard as it's a short cut to a business that was advertising they have a pokemon character. I'm happy they are moving soon, their kids have no respect for personal property.

  8. that pokemania is one f the 7 plagues :o( but we liked crystal pepsi... I've heard it is back in the US... is that true?
