Which one of these is not like the other?

June 6th, 2007 · 48 comments

Along with the Mad Bomber series, I’d say this note is one for the hall of fame. There are so many amazing elements here I can’t even pick a favorite.

Yay! No more loud obnoxious roommates! which one of these is not like the other? (2 of 2)

    I personally favor the way it starts…with a “yay!”

    Is the reply in the upper right hand corner, or was that part of the note.

    I’m thinking the writer is sorta jealous of the girls who get to, um, use the shower that way. And, I think this person really really wanted her roommate to make a connection with her. “don’t say hello”.

    This one’s all over the map, but a good one.

    I don’t understand — what’s wrong with re-using plastic utensils?

    I had the same question as Jenny, but was afraid to ask. Don’t want to be labeled as a spork-reusing ho!

    OK, maybe some of those I can understand, but what’s wrong with putting can openers in the sink? Does she mean getting them stuck in the drain or something? (And I also don’t think reusing plastic utensils is offensive.)

      Duuude when you leave a can opener in a sink of water they get all rusty and icky.

      Seriously, I’m not kidding, this is a fight I had with my husband for a year. He thinks a can opener needs to be soaked, but not scrubbed. So not only does he not get the stupid thing clean I was always digging it out of a sink full of cold nasty dishwater with things “soaking”

      We’ve moved on to different fights now *lol*

    Um…what does “whore” smell like? Damnation and hellfire or KY and…well, you know.

    ps. Reusing plastic utensils is good for the environment. Plastic spoons do not grow on trees.

    “smell like a whore”…I can’t imagine anything worse than telling someone they smell like a whore. That just brings to mind all sort of things…like those damn feminine “freshness” commercials of the 80′s.

    Is that a Harry Potter sticker on that note?

    My granny always accused anyone wearing a lot of perfume of smelling like a whore, but I think an actual whore probably smells like a combination of sweat, booze and azz.

    I love the parentheses at the end. Just in case you needed a quick breakdown of the situation. Funny that she decides to dish all the dirt after the roomate moves out. Very passive-aggressive.

    I’ll help clarify a few things for the confused…

    Not jealous of the girl using the shower that way, only because whenever I would need to shower, or sleep. you know where I’m going…

    the problem with reusing the plastic stuff is it’s all gross and we have actual silverware that they use and DONT clean.

    Can openers in the sink…usually, there isn’t too big of a mess with a can opener, so it’s easy to put in the drawer. However, when a person uses it, puts it in the sink when it’s completely fine, and then doesn’t do their dishes for the next…ohhh five days, and you go to open a…I don’t know…can? It’s kind of annoying.

    Def. not jealous of these girls. roommates in college suck. that’s all.

    I love the way girls will sometimes toss in the oh-so-subtle implication that their roommates/ex-friends/etc. are slutting around, as if who they’re in the shower with is really all that relevant.

    First we had smells like teen spirit, now we have smells like whore. Hmm.

    Wasn’t smells like whore the name of the designer perfume from Britney Spears? Or is my mind going fuzzy in my old age.

    The smell of whore, I would think, relates to the aromatic pleasantries of an outhouse aboard a fishing boat….and c’mon, don’t you think everything listed on that whiteboard applies to what college life should be like?

    And what the “notemaker” doesn’t reveal is:
    -you could tell when her and her boyfriend were in the aparment by the way it smelled (not an overexaggeration)
    -she left mats of hair in the drain of the shower
    -she decorated the apartment walls in Harry Potter and that stupid immature bunny, but refused to let anyone put any normal posters up
    -left meat to rot beneath the dishes because she refused to wash them
    -bitched her roommates out for using an offset spatula because she thought it was strictly for icing cake

    and for the rest of you
    -the smell of “whore” is nothing other than the Victoria Secret perfume that my roommate and I wore…the “notemaker” wouldn’t know anything about perfume or smelling half decent
    -I have had a boyfriend for the last year and a half and he was the only one to use the shower(which shouldn’t have been her business anyway)
    -plastic utensils were used because the “notemaker” and her equally as sloppy roommate refused to wash any dishes, even though they ate every single meal there

      Are you hotter than her, too? I can just feel those vibes oozing through, amid all the other crazy. As a chick who’s hotter than most other girls I meet, I’m all too familiar with these kinds of attacks!

    Yay! No more passive-aggressive whiteboard notes from a roommate who is boring, uptight, doesn’t wash can-openers, throws out all her plastic utensils after one use (seriously, what did she mean there?) and smells like JEALOUS!
