Cleaning party!

July 30th, 2007 · 32 comments

Justin in Winston-Salem, N.C. spotted this classic mom note on the fridge at his friends’ house — with a bonus roommate note, to boot!

Says Justin: “I love the magnet — not sure if it’s supposed to be a letter grade or not, but I prefer to think that it is. If they get an F, I’d get a negative B or so.”

You Boys need to have a Cleaning Party! :) Love, Mom

(Wings, corn dogs, taquitos AND mac & cheese? Ah, college.)

    The “F” magnet makes it art.

      bobby, try switching the letters around.

      and let’s try to keep the commenting EVERY SINGLE note over a month old to a minimum, hmmm? :D

      I don’t get why that is a bad thing.
      Does it bump it to the top or something? Send out mass emails? Why can’t he comment on old notes? Confused……

      I’d like to comment on old notes too……

    Honestly, if you have to leave a LIST of things that are yours, then shouldn’t you have your own fridge/freezer? Yeah, I’m staggering in at 2am, want a snack, so the first thing I’m going to do is consult the NOTE. Uh huh.

    Sheesh, nothing worse than an anal-retentive-passive-aggressive.

    Yes, a “U” would’ve made that perfect. That smiley face makes me want to do bad things, though. Involving bread (yes, fucking delicious bread), pooh and condoms. Very bad things.

    Or, I just sit down and have a nice taquito/mac and cheese bake. Yum!

    I couldnt afford steaks in college… those bad boys would have my name ALL over them. No chances taken.
    Dude needs to take it up another notch in his note-writing if he wants to have food in 3 1/2 weeks. Do I see an “eat and die” note in our future?

    Oh, and my Mom would have just cleaned- not left a note. =)

    That’s so not what I expect of Mom handwriting though… Where’s the authoritative loopiness?

    My roommate is an avid meat-eater and I’m vegetarian. I never have to worry about her eating my stuff or vice versa.

    Buy healthy things. They’ll last longer ;)

    I’m not saying meat isn’t healthy, btw… spare me any Anti-Peta messages. lol I have health issues that prevent me from eating meat.

    The magnet is the amusing part of this post…

    Carry on.

    how is the food note even staying on the fridge? It doesn’t have a magnet! Did he take the time and TAPE it?

    He really is anal retentive.

    And P.S. Mom, you should’ve been a dear and cleaned for them.

    why should the mom clean for them? its not her apartment (which is why she shouldnt have left a note either-who cares how messy it is?) if they are old enough to live on their own and afford new chicken breasts then they can push a swiffer around once in a while.

    Why do the passive-aggressive types relentlessly posing as Mom to be clever and flirtatious always write like 10-year-olds?

    You know, that’s creepy when I think about it. You want to be flirtatious, so you pose as someone’s Mom, much less a 10-year-old Mom.

    Yikes.

    I think “Mom”‘s handwriting is the same as in the note on the left.

    I’m pretty sure they were written by different people…also, homeboy shared his corndogs with me in an hour of desparate munchies, so give him a break. He did tape the note though, lawls.

    southern girl @ 15 – I think its one of those magnetic notepad things that stays on the fridge by itself.

    Does anyone else think this guy has a bit of a multiple food personality issue? Lettuce and Cucumber vs. corn dogs and taquitos (not sure what those are, but they sound greasy)!

    Handwriting analysis:

    Anything that is beefy or requires deep-fat-frying= BIG FONT

    Anything that remotely suggests health = tiny scribbled afterthought…

    Conclusion: He probably won’t mind if you make yourself a salad, but stay away from the Corn Dogs !!
