Movin’ Out (Anthony’s Song)

August 14th, 2007 · 202 comments

Mary saw this collection of missives while visiting friends in Long Island City, Queens last spring.

movin' out (anthony's song)

Anthony left a note on the door…

left a note on the door

Saving his pennies for someday…

savin' his pennies for someday

You oughta know by now

You oughta know by now

Workin’ too hard can give you a heart attackackackackackack

working too hard can give you a heart attackackackackackack

And it seems such a waste of time

You should never argue with a crazy mi-mi-mi-mi-mi-mind

You should never argue with a crazy mi-mi-mi-mi-mi-mind

And it seems such a waste of time

But she’s not movin’ out.

You can pay Uncle Sam with the overtime

    Who’s Terry? That’s really what I want to know. He’s getting thanked a lot…for…what? Witnessing the agreement Rene signed and on which Anthony later reneged?

    Mostly, I just like the crazy-ass handwriting.

    Team WHOA.

    Also, I love that Terry thinks Rene should stop smoking her killing (close-up #1). Is this one of her possible other addictions? Is she toking spiders that she has squashed? Or is she making smoked squirrel jerky? Or what?

    I like the “hotline confidential” notation in note 5 — so confidential that it’s publicly posted on the street door to the “luxury” apartments. And who is Patrick anyway? The lawyer? The owner? Like Terry, he’s a mystery.

    The letters seem to be up in reverse chronological order, yes? Rene’s letter is dated May of 2005, whereas Anthony’s start in September 2006 and work their way back. I wonder if Rene really didn’t start paying rent like she promised, or if the mounting figures in Anthony’s letters are just due to interest on whatever he thinks he’s owed for whatever nutty reason.

    I like that Anthony appears to have numbered Rene’s lies on her letter, for your insane convenience.

    Yeah. It becomes clear when you see the dates. If she hadn’t paid him for more than a year… Well, I wouldn’t even call him overreactive.

    Okay, here’s the scoop:
    Rene doesn’t pay her rent. She lies, smokes, and drinks too much.
    Anthony has covered for her for way too long.
    Terry kicked Rene’s butt, so that’s where the “thank yous” come from.
    My youngest brother could be called a “Rene.” He lies, drinks, and smokes…then makes up tons of excuses for why he doesn’t make things right financially! He’s one of those SOBs that actually COMPLAINS about paying child support! AAARRRGGGHHH!
    Now, I think we need to begin the use of a new adjective, nationwide. When you don’t pay your rent, we’ll all refer to you as a Rene.
    I like these notes, as they are REAL, folks…do you hear me??? REAL! We needed this bit, didn’t we?

    Holy moly!!!! She owes him rent, she’s killing him with her smoke AND she raped him?
    I like how the handwriting starts out nice and neat, but then sorta deteriorates. Nice touch about the amount owed, too – the way it raises exponentially from one note to another to include Terry’s fees, petrol(?), services, “harrassment” (??wtf?) That and the rape thing are the reason why I’m on team Rene. Anthony sounds like he’s in need of massive professional help! Oh, and thanks A LOT for getting that darn song stuck in my head, it’ll be there all day now!

    They are both pretty crazy.

    How does someone get away with not paying rent for 13 months? Maybe her secret weapon is #8 in her letter – appealing to Anthony’s “Christian heart.” That’s the sort of line you read in one of those Nigerian scam letters.

    This guy is apparently racking up some major lawyer fees, yet still hasn’t managed to get her ass thrown out on the street? Maybe he was stupid enough to let her move in without a written agreement?

    In one of the signs she is paired up with a convicted felon? I think the “hotline confidential” thing is his way of trying to get people to call up with something incriminating.

    I don’t know if there are two people making these signs or if it’s a Jekyll and Hyde thing. Anthony Grosso is Jekyll and Terry is Hyde.

    I just love this website. It makes me all verklempt.

    You guys, that was my first thought– “Who the hell is Terry?” Perhaps he’s/she’s the person that referred the lovely Rene to the downtrodden slumlord Anthony Grosso. However, if Anthony’s thank you to Terry was meant to be sarcastic, does Terry walk by the building every day, see these notes and feel bad? What a bunch of crazy bastards!

    In my opinion, Anthony sounds very whiny. My impression of Anthony: ten to one he owns that building and $15K is a drop in the bucket to him. I’ll also guess Anthony is a hypochondriac, short and skinny, wears Uncle Junior glasses and keeps plain yogurt in the fridge. He probably watches lots of HSN and Fox News.

    See, I always wonder how people could wind up in a situation where they’re leaving these incredibly detailed (and referenced) notes all over the front door and come off as psychos.

    For me, the situation is a lot simpler. Any time I get into some kind of situation I ask myself “Would physical violence solve this problem?” and the answer is almost invariably “yes”. Got a roommate who blows smoke in your face? Grab them by the neck. Got someone leaving filthy dishes in the sink? Shove the dirty dish in their face. Etc. Best thing is, it’s the threat of violence that solves the problem, not the actual violence itself.

    And don’t kid yourself you need to be some big tough guy to solve problems with violence. Just ask Joe Pesci.

    I tried re-reading them with the theory that there are two distinct note-writers – Anthony, whose handwriting is mostly legible, and Terry, whose writing mimics the aforementioned dyslexic spider on crack. Maybe they’re co-landlords, or something.

    There is a reason I had my tennant sign a contract that said we both had the right to end the lease with one months notice. Which I did when she disrespected my property.

    I am on Team Jekyll & Hyde.

    At first I thought Terry was the third individual (apart from Rene and Anthony), who wrote on all the signs that he had read. As in, “Got it. Thanks for letting me know. — Terry.” But a bit of amateur handwriting analysis does not seeem to support that theory. I now think Anthony Grosso and Terry are one and the same person. Both the “T” and the “k” are very distinctive and appear in both Anthony’s and Terry’s messages. Some of the “Terry” add-ons, like the fourth close-up, were written on the sign after it had been already posted. The writer may have been writing with his left hand or right foot. This is a highly unstable individual, moreover, as indicated by the two different ways of writing “y” and a few of the other letters.

    I think the “Thank you Terry” t-shirt should have the backwards-looking “y” on it. It should look like the third close-up.

    I am on Team Terry (thanx!) only because Rene is NOT PLAYING BY THE RULES, which clearly stipulate an OBLIGATION to reply in an Equally Crazy Fashion (ECF Stipulation 2.34.5a). In addition, her notes are off-topic; do I give a damn that Pat makes copper wire sculptures? – I think not.

I mean, she even posted her own reply. Maybe this was in the heat of a PA war on Terror (and squatters) between landlord and tenant…?

    After reading again (just couldn’t help myself), I have come to believe that Terry is a deity to crazy people, and “Thank You Terry” is an expression of ecstatic worship, much like “Thank You Jesus!” or “Praise be to Allah!” or “Holy Cow, Batman!”. Makes as much sense as any other theory, and I can imagine crowds of crazies falling to their knees outside the door chanting “Ter-ry, Ter-ry, Ter-ry” like zombies.

    And for these many blessings, Thank You Terry!

    Can I get an amen?

    AMEN.

    I love the part about the Surgeon General and Anthony’s good Christian heart.

    It’s obvious as D put it that he worships “Terry” and not Jeebus.

    Also, I think Anthony has posted the notes on his OWN door rather than Rene’s and that Terry is ANOTHER tenant who is expressing his appreciation for Anthony serving Rene old-school bitch style. yo.

    This is much deeper than I thought.

    For a moment, I tried to follow the assumption that Terry=Anthony, as some commenters suggested. Then I realized that Rene’s letter to Anthony contains the line “with Terri [sic] as witness” (lie #9). So Terry!=Anthony. But then I looked at the the topmost double note again (sept. 1st 2006). Those seem to be written by one person (compare identical handwriting of “Rene Hall”), but, one could argue, the left note is signed by someone called Terry (“Thank you Terry”), while the right note is signed by someone called Anthony.
    Is there any solution to this puzzle? Yes indeed: Anthony never signed any of those notes. Look at the exact phrasing: “your [you're] killing [line break] Anthony Grosso”; “I need someone to help [line break] Anthony Grosso”. Only at first glance it seems that Anthony signed those notes. Actually, “Anthony” is in the object position of those sentences above, which were presumably written and signed by Terry.

    Open question: why did Rene write the letter to Anthony, although Terry seems to do all of the note-writing?
    Simple: When Rene wrote her letter, Anthony was still in good health and was her main contact for the apartment. However, Anthony’s health rapidly deteriorated, possibly due to Rene’s smoking “et al”. Now, it is Terry’s sad duty to take over Anthony’s former role, while poor Anthony himself is hooked to an iron lung.

    Addictive agent? I’m goin’ for that theory. These notes were the first thing I saw on this site, and I can’t get the hell off now. I keep reading these.. wondering what’s going on now? Has Anthony died? Is Terry taking care of things now? What is poor Rene’ doing now? Is she living under a bridge… smoking too much and killing the other homeless & assorted out-door -type rodents? And, where is the art? Maybe it was really REALLY good empty ciggy box and paper clip art! Maybe, if we could all order some of that art, a miracle will happen! Anthony & Terry will live together peacefully and ‘unkilled’ by Rene’s smoking, because it does clearly state she now has a fan in her window, and Rene’ and her copper wire art friend will live together happily… God. I am dying, DYING to know what happened! Argh! And thanks yall, for giving me something that keeps me from gettin’ my friggin house work done. LOL.

    How about this:

    Once upon a time in a quiet little corner of New Jersey, there lived a very well behaved tenant named Terry. His live-in landlord Anthony Grosso was intrigued to find his (Terry’s) name as a reference upon an application for a lady named Rene Hall. After doing a follow-up with Terry, and receiving satisfactory responses, Anthony Grosso decided to allow Rene Hall to move in on the basis that she must be a good tenant if her friend Terry was such a good tenant and had such good things to say about her–even offering to stand as witness for her lease signing.

    Later down the line Rene Hall turned out to be an alcohol et al. abusing, squatting, smoking, piece of outdoor-art pushing loser of a tenan,t and Anthony Grosso, helpless and alone, was left with no choice but to berate her via public postings hoping to shame her into changing her ways. In the peak of his furor and insanity, Anthony always remembered to add a very Chandler Bing sarcastic THANK YOU TERRY to his notes because after all…

    THIS WAS ALL TERRY’S FAULT!!!!

    Thank you Terry.

    Ah, Mandy, I like the sarcastic Thank You Terry theory. Especially since there are no commas after the “thank you”s, such as “Thank You, Terry”, as if Terry had written it. More like “Thank You Terry you stupid asstick”, as if someone was thanking Terry sarcastically. But then again, someone who makes their “Y” backwards probably doesn’t know about proper comma usage.

    It’s the backwards “Y” that keeps getting me. Because sometimes there is a normal “Y”…it’s all so puzzling…and I wonder if Pat ever made any art after all…

    Jules, I don’t think Pat made any art – she had a record and in my little version of this story in my head, she was probably a tweeker and got picked up for possession or something
    (because she had a felony record and it was available to the general public too) and so she went to the clink and wasn’t able to produce any copper and wire sculptures to sell to God-Knows-Who-Would-Want-To-Buy-These and so Rene wasn’t able to make rent and got kicked out finally… and now she lives under a bridge smoking as said in an earlier comment…

    But the dates of the court hearings jibes with the dates on Anthony’s notes – the first date is 5/06 and the first date on the court preceedings is April 06. It took a year from when Rene wrote the note for them to get on the ball and take action. He was probably weak due to the rape and the smoking killing him…

    Anthony changed his mind about the rent after Rene had moved in. That makes him a tit.

    Rene hasn’t paid any of it though, that makes her a royal arse wipe, too.

    Go team Terry.

    Those are PERFECT Zsa!! An idea ran through my mind while I was looking at them… how about you make another style where on the front it says “Your smoking is killing Anthony Grosso” (or any other line from these wonderful, wonderful notes that you like) and then do the Thank You Terry on the back… but I still like those A LOT!!! (two words again!)

    I like the gray, because it’s creepier. But for the other side, what about “Save Anthony Grosso?” But if you are taking the text directly from the signs, “You’re killing Anthony Grosso” gets my vote.

    Anthony leaves notes all over the door
    Sayin’ his pennies are astray
    One and a half million of them or more
    And so Rene should move out and not stay
    Ah you’re smoking too much; I’ll have a
    Heart attack-ack-ack-ack-ack-ack
    You oughta know by now (You oughta know by now)
    Who needs a house full of shrinky dink?
    Is that all you got? I want money!

    And it’s been such a stretch of time
    Fifteen months! What’s that all about?
    Rene and Pat, how I wish you were movin’ out
    Mm, movin’ out

    Fabulous Mishee is findin’ the street
    (At night she becomes Mrs Bender)
    Anthony’s writing (or maybe it’s Terry’s) ain’t neat
    Writin’ chicken-scratch notes to a renter
    Like a spider with dyslexia on
    Crack-ack-ack-ack-ack-ack-ack
    The ‘y’ is the wrong way round (The ‘y’ is the wrong way round)
    And if he can’t get Rene Hall to pack
    His chances of living are slender

    And it’s been such a stretch of time
    Fifteen months! What’s that all about?
    Rene and Pat, how I wish you were movin’ out
    Mm, movin’ out

    You should never argue with a
    Crazy mi-mi-mi-mi-mind
    But if you do, this ain’t how (If you do, this ain’t how)
    You can pay the landlord with your freelance dime
    And keep eatin’ smoked squirrel jerky

    And so thanks, Terry, you’re so kind
    My heart is weak and I’m stressed out
    Good luck packin’ up Rene, ’cause you’re movin’ out
    Mm, you’re movin’ out
    You’re movin’ out

    Mystery solved, guys – this is why the notes were never taken down. This is why legal action was never taken. This is why he didn’t kick “Rene” out after 3 months of not paying rent. Schizophrenia.

    I come here and it’s like I am visiting the gravesite of a dead loved one…

    I sit and stare at it for a while, then I read what is written on the “grave marker” (the pics), sometimes touching the screen as if it could connect me to the person whom it represented… sometimes I gently weep (thanks ZB!) and then I sigh and walk away… contented for a little while longer until I get the compulsive, guilt-ridden, masochistic need to come back again…

    It’s a nasty circle.

    UPDATE!
    Well folks, this case HAS gone to court. Anthony has gone the legal route to get his money back. I guess the notes on the door did not work.
    Here is the case number: CV-018699-06/QU

    http://iapps.courts.state.ny.us/webcivil/ecourtsMain

    How I wish I could go watch the case in court-Rene Hall is representing herself!! Oh, and it appears that Pat is Patricia Erickson and also lived in the same apt. with Rene as did John and Jane Doe!

    Unfortunately, I still have no clue as to who Terry is.

    My other theory is that Rene weighs like millions of pounds and doesn’t have any money because she spends it all on food and cigarettes and just general good Christianity.

    Someone probably already said this, but I think Anthony was in love with Rene at some point, or at least wanted to sleep with her and this led to his emotional destruction.
    He let the rent go for so long because she could tell he liked her and she flirted with him.
    I bet he didn’t get angry about it even until he heard about her doing something slutty and it all of sudden hit him.

    Poor Anthony.

      They were actually sleeping together at some point, but once Rene started smoking after the Big O, Anthony realized she was killing him slowly. Then he realized his heart couldn’t handle too much more of the Big O, and then fiasco ensued.

      Terry is Anthony’s housekeeper. He convinced Anthony to stop striving for the Big O and start demanding rent. Oh thank you terry.
