A common misconception

June 5th, 2007 · 25 comments

Dispatches from an oh-so-common passive-aggressive battleground: “the common area.”

YO ANDY WHAT'S THE DEAL W/ MY PAINTS & STUFF?? WHY DO YOU U KEEP MOVING THEM?? ISN'T THIS THE COMMON AREA??

THESE TABLES ARE EVERYBODY'S NOT JUST YOURS! IF U CAN STORE JUNK UNDER THEM, I CAN STORE PAINT ON TOP OF THEM. WORD.

So, whose side are you on?

    It sounds like they both need to move their crap into their own rooms.

      nope, they do the “A”s differently. two different, but similar, handwriting sets.

    I agree, these are from the same person; they’re both signed “J”, and they use the “U”, instead of you.

    I expect Bologna meant that Andy is also a jerk if he is messing with J.’s stuff.

    Anyone with kids knows there’s a BIG difference between storing your crap underneath the table versus leaving your crap on top of the table.

    If there’s paints on the table, where do I put my margarita?

    Uhm, well, if the polite thing to do would not leave your shit everywhere. On the other hand, the right thing to do would take his shit off if you need it, then put it back when your done. Duh, your in college (I assume) use your head. -_-’

    It depends. I mean, I can understand storing stuff in a common area on a shelf of a table (like how some tables have some shelves under them), but storing stuff on top of the table? How can the table then be used? Then again, if they’re on a table that’s not being used often, I can see that side, too.

    I’m on Andy’s side.
    under table = out of the way
    on the table = in the way
    common area = everyone cleans up their shit when they’re done with it.

    I really, really, REALLY hate it when people use chatspeak, particularly in media that aren’t text messages that charge per character! For the love of FSM, people, it’s only TWO MORE LETTERS to write out “you”! If it’s that much of a strain, maybe you should go back to elementary school and learn to write cursive.

    TEAM J!

    My housemates constantly move my shit from the common area to outside my door and it shits me to no end. And they move my shit cause that’s where they want to put theirs. Never mind that I own all the fucking furniture in the place.

    Amen about the furniture.. I still live with my ex, since I haven’t found somewhere to go yet, and I don’t mind him sleeping in the living room on my couch(es), but if he smokes any more cigarettes in there Ima kill a bloke.

    Wow. Sorry about that…
