The anticipation is killing me.

[–]moody_dudey 8690 points8691 points  (350 children)

Same. Why the fuck would OP share this with us before it was time.

[–]dgtlfnk 1001 points1002 points  (118 children)

He’s the creator of the RemindMe bot and just needs to test a few recent tweaks.

[–]Death_Star_ 5561 points5562 points 24& 5 more (148 children)

So we could all edge together

[–]jpollo803 1674 points1675 points 2 (81 children)

Group edging.......

Am I interested?

[–]anandonaqui 312 points313 points  (22 children)

Karma. Post now for the anticipatory karma. Post after for the reveal karma. Hopefully this won’t be the next safe.

[–]mullerota621 81 points82 points  (4 children)

I think they call it "Hype" in marketing bussiness :D

[–]G66GNeco 40 points41 points  (1 child)

Though, it will more likely kill you.

[–]Raizzor 867 points868 points  (13 children)

After years of peace, Reddit is again held hostage by an OP who will surely deliver.

[–]Legobrick1000 7206 points7207 points  (143 children)

OP waits for years with this note at their fingertips, Reddit can't wait 3 days to know what it says.

That's very relatable.

[–]DependentDocument3 2132 points2133 points  (66 children)

why didn't he just wait 3 more days and post the note and content all at once

[–]unknown_human 2516 points2517 points  (37 children)

Double karma

[–]yawners87 1169 points1170 points  (17 children)

This dude knows how to play the system

[–]tendeuchen 619 points620 points  (10 children)

Nah, he should have been posting it every year on 4/11 with a title like "Another year closer to finding out." Then he could've gotten 10 years of karma.

[–]jakedesnake 320 points321 points  (8 children)

This guy karmas

[–]MeowWhat 35 points36 points  (3 children)

193k comment karma? He really does.

[–]adrianmonk 21 points22 points  (0 children)

Twist: it's actually going to be triple karma. In three days OP is going to post, "I lied! The date is actually American format. See you in just under 7 months."

[–]cmaistros 58 points59 points  (5 children)

double the pride, double the fall

[–]Hworks 6 points7 points  (3 children)

Double the posts, double the karma

Technically the original quote is"twice the pride, double the fall" but close enough.

[–]Sipstaff 7 points8 points  (0 children)

He will post it again November 1st, but claiming it's a US style date.

Quadruple Karma!

[–]rivigurl 27 points28 points  (0 children)

Mr. Krabs - “Money!”

[–]RireBaton 33 points34 points  (3 children)

Or put the note contents behind a paywall!

[–]wcollins260 61 points62 points  (4 children)

Me: An American thinking we had to wait 7 more months.

[–]guidedbylight27 43 points44 points  (1 child)

Also a great way to Karma farm.

[–]Rurnur[S] 13.4k points13.4k points 2& 2 more (3518 children)

UPDATE: The note's contents have been revealed! https://www.reddit.com/r/videos/comments/moq79r/opening_a_note_that_was_handed_to_me_in_class/

Context is that there was a running joke in class, where kids would write notes that say "Do not open until (future date)", expecting the recipient to just open them immediately. My friend tried it on me, but I thought it'd be funny to keep it. I placed it in a small chest where it laid dormant for many years, but not forgotten! I am fully expecting a "Got you!" or "OP is gay!" sort of thing, though.

[–]go_out_stay_home 2465 points2466 points  (952 children)

You still in contact with that friend?

[–]Rurnur[S] 3527 points3528 points 3 (951 children)

I am! He's a swell guy!

[–]PudaRex 1546 points1547 points  (928 children)

Does he know you still have this? If so, does he remember what he may have written?

[–]Rurnur[S] 3779 points3780 points  (925 children)

He knows, and he does not remember. All he knows is that it was a message, not a drawing. Edit: Now he's saying maybe it could be a drawing. Don't trust that guy.

[–]DinaDinaDinaBatman 1463 points1464 points  (596 children)

what if its something like confessing he's crushing on you and expecting a reply only to suffer the last 10 years in self imposed friendzone

[–]DinaDinaDinaBatman 439 points440 points  (559 children)


RemindMe! 3 days

[–]Mackheath1 157 points158 points  (114 children)

OP should've put !RemindMe 3,653 days

[–]Spork_Warrior 40 points41 points  (2 children)

It's going to be a dickbutt. I guarantee it!

[–]Technically-im-right 10 points11 points  (1 child)

This reminds me of Ross saying “I too…am a neat guy”

[–]_Jeff_Benzos_ 2552 points2553 points  (2076 children)

OP is gay! Haha got you

No but for real what does it say. It's been long enough.

[–]Rurnur[S] 3877 points3878 points 2 (2063 children)

Only have to wait 3 more days!

[–]lizzylizbith 1560 points1561 points  (326 children)

I’m actually low key excited to know what it says - can’t imagine how excited you are! Will you share with us when you finally get to the 11th? (Fellow kiwi also ✌🏼)

[–]CaptainChivalry 571 points572 points  (30 children)

So... Wanna go get some cake and discuss some of our worst life choices together?

[–]GeppaN 82 points83 points  (2 children)

It says «beware of the corona» - queue intensive LOST music

[–]Picklwarrior 79 points80 points  (786 children)

RemindMe! Three days

Edit: holy shit you guys

[–]couch_otter 8 points9 points  (8 children)

I gotta know! I hope I don’t forget the day of the big reveal.

[–]itwasntme55 149 points150 points  (16 children)

Do you still speak to the person

[–]Rurnur[S] 190 points191 points  (15 children)

Yes I do! He is very excited for the reveal!

[–]sorry_ 64 points65 points  (5 children)

Its a love note

[–]TuftOfFurr 153 points154 points  (4 children)

"Hey Bro

I just like wanted to let you know bro that I like LIKE you bro. And I know you bro. I know you wont open this note right away bro cuz your funny that way. You will see Ive been single this whole time bro waiting for you to open this letter with me 10 years from now.

I love you bro. We have had some good times together bro, and I have faith while we wait to open this letter we will have a whole lot more. Let's do that forever bro. As family. Turn around bro I have something for you."

[–]fatinternetcat 69 points70 points  (1 child)


[–]bdonvr 10 points11 points  (0 children)

....do you want to...

...get some ice cream...

...after this?

[–]grapecity 7 points8 points  (3 children)

Does he remember what it says?

[–]Twiztd85 7 points8 points  (1 child)

I'm kinda of curious about this too... maybe it's just been so long he doesn't remember

[–]Xandax_ 9696 points9697 points 291067& 9 more (1485 children)

Yo, I am the friend that wrote this note for u/Rurnur I don't remember what I wrote on it, but I am very excited to see it be opened! I have pressured him to open it earlier but he never gave in.

[–]Rurnur[S] 6692 points6693 points  (1307 children)

It's him! This is the guy!!

[–]Moisturized_Bum 978 points979 points  (863 children)

This is so exciting! Three more days

Edit: OP is from New Zealand. D/M/Y

[–]Baxxb 464 points465 points  (731 children)

!RemindMe 4 days “secret love letter”

[–]timeup 354 points355 points  (27 children)

My American ass thought I had to wait until November

[–]Kittyands 13 points14 points  (5 children)

Have you guys stayed in touch or is this also a reunion?????

[–]Rurnur[S] 52 points53 points  (4 children)

We're friends! We played Overwatch together tonight! Xandax is toxic, but I keep him reigned in.

[–]gantek 1769 points1770 points  (329 children)

u/Xandax_ and u/rurnur sitting in a tree. K I S S I N G.


This DDMMYYYY should be the correct format used by everyone. Fuck everyone who doesn’t agree.

[–]ThisTechnocrat 1391 points1392 points & 2 more (124 children)

But... if you do YYYYMMDD and it is a digital date, you can sort on it chronologically.

[–]mickey030210 33 points34 points  (1 child)

We use that here in Korea as well, ISO 8601ftw!

[–]VanGarrett 199 points200 points  (40 children)

I use YYYYMMDD in all of my file names, and for the reason you state.

[–]AegisToast 30 points31 points  (12 children)

I start my file names with “YYYY.MM.DD” because it’s a little easier to read.

[–]VanGarrett 9 points10 points  (2 children)

The specific format I use is: [Project Number] - [Project Name] (YYYY-MM-DD) [Item Number] [Title]

That's chiefly for PDFs of production packages, but other files I create generally use a derivative format, where all of the relevant information is included. Not only do I want things to sort usefully, but I want them to be searchable, too.

[–]NbdySpcl_00 57 points58 points  (18 children)

"Sure, you can do it that way. Starting tomorrow though, can you just add a decimal spot between the year and the month? You don't have to do the old ones, I'm not trying to give you a lot of work."

-- my boss, probably

[–]VanGarrett 27 points28 points  (10 children)

Batch Renaming Utility will save you some time, if you can figure out how to make it work.

[–]CptnFunbags 8 points9 points  (0 children)



[–]regulator227 5 points6 points  (5 children)

Processes that expect a certain file naming format also need changed and retested

[–]VanGarrett 6 points7 points  (4 children)

I feel you, there. My boss wants me to change a column name in a database that's referenced in almost every query, form and report used in our timekeeping system. I don't think he understands how much of a problem that constitutes, and how long we won't be able to perform some pretty basic tasks.

[–]NbdySpcl_00 8 points9 points  (0 children)

"Well, ok. You don't have to change the column name, then. But do put spaces between the words, OK? Thanks."

[–]Alfowick 4 points5 points  (2 children)

You may already be aware but just do what I do and make them a view. That way you can rename and add columns without fucking up your tables. I never give a non-dev/non-DBA access to actual tables anymore, since I get so many dumb requests like "Change the name" or "Can we reorder the columns?"

[–]CaldariPrimePonyClub 81 points82 points  (10 children)

I'm a kiwi, but I much prefer yyyymmdd as you can sort the dates easily.

[–]KrabbyPattyCereal 43 points44 points  (3 children)

That's it, time to annex this blasphemers country for their oil.

[–]ladladladz 236 points237 points  (7 children)

How likely is it that it is a drawing of a penis?

Shh, don't ruin it!

[–]yoririshgirl 98 points99 points  (5 children)

Thank you for providing Reddit something to obsess over for the next 3 days. :)

[–]RipDorHigHTryN06 149 points150 points  (9 children)

"Only 9 more days until 420. YOLO"

Sincerely, u/Xandax_

[–]to2ro95 35 points36 points  (10 children)

I hope you wrote about him losing the game.

If OP posted that as the followup it would be a hilariously reddit way to restart that goddamn game

Edit to add I woke up and saw that quite a few of you have rejoined the loser's club, welcome back ;)

[–]poncicle 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Haha, shit you not, it has been 3 weeks since the last time. 5 years before that one though

[–]Takita 725 points726 points  (16 children)

I’m hoping your friend wrote down his 12 word Bitcoin wallet recovery passcode on it.

Edit: if it does... you owe me 1 Bitcoin. 😉

[–]RareArrival 402 points403 points  (31 children)

I'd bet $25 dollars that it's some sort of love confession

[–]Dr_SnM 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Dear OP, if neither of us are married let's do it

[–]Banana_Crusader00 43 points44 points  (9 children)

It will probably be something like "I told you not to open it!!!" since literally noone expects folks to actually comply with those outrageous dates xD

[–]thezubek 36 points37 points  (1 child)

I know it's not but just imagine that it's a Rick roll

This is gonna be like the safes isn”t it? You are gonna disappear.

[–]JerichoMaxim 36 points37 points  (0 children)

I'm still a little disappointed about how that safe thing turned out.

[–]nealius 26 points27 points  (4 children)

Is this the new "I found a safe in the floor of my new home?"

[–]Goodgardo 115 points116 points  (12 children)

hmm. I'm going with either A) your friend is coming out B) he saw your Mom naked C) another SMALLER note inside saying to open in 2022 or most likely C) a picture of DickButt. Please keep us posted.

[–]Wankeritis 39 points40 points  (10 children)

Over a decade ago? Dickbutt didn’t exist then.

Did it?

[–]soawesomejohn 48 points49 points  (9 children)

Dickbutt predates bitcoin

[–]Wankeritis 61 points62 points  (8 children)

Dickbutt 2006

Bitcoin 2008

Holy fuck you’re right.

I was sure 2006 was only a couple of years ago...

[–]TuftOfFurr 15 points16 points  (3 children)

Why haven't we seen CoinButt

Or DickCoin

Or CoinDickButtCoin

Or ...

Excellent! For those just walking in, OP posted a video of the unfolding


[–]Enigmativity 19 points20 points  (1 child)

Inside: "Marty, something's got to be done about your kids."

[–]rohdawg 20 points21 points  (3 children)

This was from over a decade ago, it probably just says something like "lol ur gay" because that was the time.

[–]tryingrfa 15 points16 points  (11 children)

Dude I am so excited to see what this says lol

Are you still in contact with this friend?

[–]Rurnur[S] 30 points31 points  (10 children)

I am! We're bestest friends.

[–]Xandax_ 46 points47 points  (4 children)

This is somewhat true

[–]Rurnur[S] 26 points27 points  (1 child)

Classic Xandax! We have a great rapport.

[–]NARWHAL_IN_ANUS 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Oh Xandax.

[–]KenDM0 13 points14 points  (5 children)

I don’t even need to set a reminder anymore because EVERYONE AND THEIR MOM is inputting the reminder command as a reply to my comment. Thanks people.

[–]gerusz 10 points11 points  (0 children)

It's a dick. I can guarantee it.

[–]fearxile 10 points11 points  (1 child)

I hope it just says "Fuck You"

[–]hockeygirlx1 8 points9 points  (3 children)

FYI OP posted a video of them opening it here https://youtu.be/yGVVs0zBErk

[–]izthebitch 7 points8 points  (0 children)

It’s the Krabby Patty recipe, I’m sure of it.

[–]RyukoDragon 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Right, with the reminder set, I can’t wait to see what your friend wrote! Even if it’s a single letter! The fact that you managed to actually keep it this long is awesome! X3
