How hazing rituals are born

May 22nd, 2007 · 11 comments

Jimmy in Worcester brings this jaunty little note from the Lambda Chi Alpha House at WPI.

Says Jimmy: “The kid whose cookware was hidden ended up just leaving the utensils (tongs, spatula, etc…) wherever they were hidden and simply bought a new set. This forced the kid who originally hid them to find them again before they started to stink up the place.”

Just in case you needed another reason to pass on the Lambda Chis’ rush-week pancake breakfast…

Dear Brother Who's Cooking Supplies Were Left Here,  You may notice that they are all one, where they are I cannot tell you. all I can say is that they are strategically hidden throughout the house. The time that it takes you to find them all should equal the time it took to clean up after you and the big mess you left in the kitchen (and not to mention all summer.) Happy Hunting! -FUBAR

    We had a roommate that was aggressively passive-aggressive…We called him Agro-Passagro Mike.

    i will conveniently hide them in a place where roaches will breed, then migrate them to under his bed if he ever try to buy a new set.

    rinse, repeat. of course, without the said notes.

    Sometimes, I find evil sabotage is better than subtle notes like this.

    Comprehensive reading skills guys…

    “The time it takes you to find them all should equal the amount of time it took me to clean up after you and the big mess you left in the kitchen.”

    The dishes weren’t left dirty in various places, they were cleaned and hidden to cause an annoyance to someone who wasn’t smart enough to take care of his own cooking supplies.

    Just because you aren’t smart enough to read, which probably means that you weren’t smart enough to get a bid, doesn’t mean you should go about trying to create false impressions.

      Wow, and you think other people can’t read? It says in the original post that the dishes were dirty.

    This is TOTALLY something I would’ve done.

    Except I wouldn’t have left a note.

    Email or texting is much more 21st century.

      Part of the point of passive-aggressive notes is that they’re anonymous. It’s tricky to anonymize a text message (unless the target’s cellphone provider lets people send text messages from their website) or an email.

    Apparently someone doesn’t know what the lines on paper are for…
