Wrath mat

October 10th, 2007 · 163 comments

Writes an anonymous submitter in New York City: “So, my mom bought me this doormat that says ‘leave.’ You know, haha, funny joke, like the ones that say ‘go away.’ Well, apparently my neighbor didn’t find it too humorous.”

New occupants of Apt. 3C. Your incredibly bad taste, and warped mentality, are not welcome in our mutually shared space.

Adds our submitter: “Some back story: the woman has lived in the apartment across the hall for 40 years and collects cats and garbage, according to the super.”

    Perfect example of why some older people need to be put in a home, with people their own age.

    Todd: That comment has so many disturbing aspects, I’ll leave that to the others. :D

    This is a great note. It starts out about the mat, then about the neighbors, then about how the landlord is trying to kill them. The final “leave” is priceless. I like to think it’s inferring leaving dead or alive. For some reason, that’s the best way to take it.

    This whole note is scrawled with a marker and it looks like a whole stream of consciousness thing. Wonderful! Great Hump Day note, I do say. Whee.

    Ah, I get it. She’s making a joke about the doormat which says “leave.” But it’s not a funny joke.

    On its own her “leave” sounds like a quintessential P-A move. Scary.

    sometime old people take these sarcastic modern thingies too seriously. My father sent a joke t-shirt to his brother (big black shirt with tinytiny writing “nosey little bugger”) My uncle took it as a reference to himself, rather then others reading the shirt. He has not spoken to my father in 13 years.

    I like the fact that the old lady thinks that her landlord has somehow deliberately planted these new neighbors and their “Leave” doormat specifically to further unhinge her, Gaslight-style.

    i think its hysterical. alot funnier than that stupid “wipe your paws” with little doggie footprints.

    on a side note, i left my own PA note to some neighbors that had 4 bags of festering garbage on their front doormat. it was fun. but i am not lame enough to take ap icture and submit my own note to this site, though.

      Man, all these commenters aren’t from NYC. It sounds like the old lady lives in a rent controlled apartment, the landlord is doing everything he can go get her out, and it is such a nightmare that even something as innocent as a doormat makes her feel harassed. Scary shit. I think its pretty sad.

    i say keep the doormat out, and then, every once in awhile try to leave other ‘subliminal’ messages. .. just to f’k with this lady.

    i was wondering about said overpaid prices, i can imagine that the quarters would change so drastically across the hall that someone got a better deal than the other.
    methinks crazy lady has probably left PA notes before.

    There is a reason I could not live in an apartment, she is this crazy cat lady. That note alone would have triggered a challenge to me to get her to move out. The fact that it would become some sorta personal mission is rather disturbing to me, but definetely has given me a reason not to sell the house and move to an apartment. Thanks crazy cat lady for helping me with this life decision.

    The Lawless Landlord, Saied Soliemani is conspiring to take over the world one rent control unit at a time. He’s wanted by Interpol but his evil henchman seem to keep him one step ahead of the law.

    The Crazy Lady in 4C has been training her cats to fight evil for 40 years and she would have successfully thwarted Saied’s efforts if a conspicuously placed floor mat hadn’t distracted her. Now she’s confornted with a new evil, one more heinous than increasing her rent from $72 per month. Its name is bad taste.

    my guess is that the apartment she is in is rent controlled, and this feeds her paranoia about the landlord trying to run her off so he can let it at a higher rate.

    either that, or she is jealous because her apartment is semi-private, lol.

    I believe that an exact copy of said doormat placed in front of Crazy Cat Lady’s door (and of course screwed down so she can’t move it) so it is right side up to her when she goes out to leave more crazy notes, she can read it and not be mistaken about the meaning.

    If I can get away with that doormat, I think one that says “leave” is NBFD.

    All very good suggestions, however, after screwing in place the brand-new “Fuck You” doormat outside Batshit Crazy Lady’s door and performing the same task with my “LEAVE” doormat outside my door, I would give a copy of the note to Saied, making sure he knows my neighbor wants him dead. Then I’d retreat to my private, highly-overpriced quarters and sip a martini, toasting the skyline of Manhattan.

    HAHA I can’t believe how many comments this has already. So this is MY neighbor. How lucky am I?!
    Here’s the update for all of you following this:
    At first, I took the doormat in because I hadn’t seen her yet and was totally taken aback/scared. (I had JUST moved in 2 days before I received this note)! But then I decided, SCREW THAT. This is America, and freedom of speech applies to doormats! So I put it back out.
    The super tells me she’s about 80 yrs old and has been in the building for 50 yrs. She has mass amounts of cats and collects garbage she finds out o the street and hoards it in her apartment (which accounts for the smell in the hallway, AWESOME.) She doesn’t let ANYONE into her apartment for ANY reason. One time, there was a leak coming from her bathroom through the ceiling into the pretty high end Day Spa below, and she wouldn’t let anyone come fix it. So the spa called the cops, the cops dispatched the Fire Dept., who came and knocked on her door, but of course she wouldn’t open. So they had to AXE down her door!! haha..just gets better. She pays $75 a month for rent(!!) As a reference point, my “highly overpriced quarters” costs me $1900 a month. So HA. No wonder they want her out. Rent control is a biotch.
    I originally wrote her a sort of nice, but assertive note back saying “Further harassment won’t be tolerated..yatta yatta” but haven’t sent it yet… should I do it just to solicit more interaction w/ her crazy note writing skills for the entertainment of all of us who are clearly bored at work? I’m really considering!

    Also, yesterday is the first time I came into actual physical contact w/ her when I walked out of my door to go to work and she was standing there staring at me. I could feel her eyes burning holes through me as I locked my door. And as I walked down the staircase she stood at the top and watched me! CAN YOU SAY CREEPY!?

    Sounds like it’s time for a late night PARTY with the scruffiest friends they have. Maybe a little vomit on the doorstep, a pile of empty bottles in the hall…

    Or perhaps just some really creative Halloween decorations on the door would suffice. Sounds like the old lady is pretty close to the edge. I can imagine her reaction to stepping out her front door and seeing a lifesize cardboard cutout of Freddie

    Oh, and another funny thing… She writes that “each of those brief neighbors could not have been kinder or more respectful of me,” however, according to my super, 4 of the 5 previous tenants had broken their leases early due to harassment by this nut job. soooo… kinder/more respectful? or terrified to the point that they had to move? I’ll be damned.
    This woman has NO clue what she has gotten herself into. Living across from me could have gone 1 of 2 ways for her. She could have been neighborly and nice, and I would have bent over backwards to help her and respect her in any and every way possible… but she greeted me with THAT note… I could potentially do the complete opposite and make her life a living hell. My friends and I are loud, we like to drink on the wknds, and her phone number is posted on her front door. enough said.

    If you want to mess with crazy people you have to be subtle. Feed her parnoia but don’t directly confront her.

    Keep a note pad handy and whenever you see her stare at her and act like you’re jotting something down. Then fill the notepad with nonsensical diagrams and little notes about her. I’d include recipes for cats. After a while make it look like you dropped the note pad and let her pick it up.

    Another great trick with crazy people is to act a little crazy yourself. When she’s within earshot carry on conversations with yourself. Or just try to act suspicious when she’s around.

    WP — Ha! ‘Just wait until she starts ordering supplies from the ACME company.’

    The wily old catlady tiptoeing around the messy mental mesas in her apartment, plotting terrible things for Ali D. and Suleimani and laboriously devising diabolical contraptions.

    She did misspell mutually (‘MUTALLY’) in the note, if we are keepin track, though it doesn’t diminish the truth of your observation that this old lady is sharp.

    Oh do be careful, Ali.

    Perhaps all would be forgiven and y’all could start fresh if you were to just bring her a plate of cookies and explain that, while you reserve the right to have rage-inducing (it seems) taste in doormats, you are all about harmony in the hood, & she can call you if she ever needs a hand with anything, peace and love, rackety rackety.

    Qualifier: I am a vet of neighbors with or for whom no good deed or intention EVER went unpunished, so there’s that. I mean, crazy people tend to be incorrigible.

    It isn’t funny. But, if the paranoia, anger and megalomaniacal P-A action of dotty neighbors is immutable, and they make you suffer, can’t you at least cling to your humanity via a bit of discussion and humor? Rhetorical question to all those who are concerned with the aggressor’s honor.

    I say never make like a doormat. I’ll warrant that old woman understands firm boundaries at least as well as anyone else. She’ll probably respect you more if you show some backbone, Ali.

    Actually, dawn, I don’t completely agree with you. They might be a bit superfluous, but they are not misplaced. I might have chosen to go with dashes or parentheses there or said “as well as [or along with] your warped mentality”, but clumsy as that sentence might be, the commas are placed appropriately (albeit redundantaly); by that, I mean it’s not like CatLady used just one comma and forgot to “close” her thought. Although I do wonder if the word after the second comma should have been “is” in this case….hmm. I will agree that it would read a hell of a lot better without them. But then, crazy is as crazy does…and maybe the purple pen is still throwing me off. It’s almost glowing on this monitor!

    What I just noticed, though, is that she went back and dotted the capital “I”s in the first sentence. Too bad she didn’t do that with little hearts!

    WP, I’m not usually particularly great at spotting the odd misspeling amid the otherwise well-spelled text; I zeroed-in on “mutally” — sorry: “MUTALLY” — as I mused on the elegant redeundancy of “mut[u]ally shared public space.”
    I know, more picking on crazy people.

    On my way to work today I drove past the local shopping-cart-pushing, piously proselytizing biblical-gloom-and-doom-droning-to-anyone-hapless-and(too)-nice-enough -to-brook-his patriarch-wannabe, lord-on-his-side, heathen-condemning shtick guy. He had collared some polite looking young wimpy guy who was standing listening to him with the same tortured look I see on the faces of all this guy’s victims, waiting for the never-to-come moment when mr. passive-aggressively holier than everyone (and I’m told a former hyper-controlling and abusive husband) stops his sanctified attack. He has tried to corner me and I am proud to say he has never succeeded. I can almost hear him thinking in vexation that I look like such a perfect sucker for his softshoe (actually, he wears elaborately austere [vain, i think!] bundles of rags on his feet, wrapped to just the right degree of st. francis-like wretchedness. Hey– I dumpster-dive at the same dump he does– I know you can dress yourself from head to foot on any given day from there.

    Point is, I think some kinds of craziness needs to be called out or just plain ignored. The fodder for ongoing p/a behavior is often people’s fear of appearing mean. I’m sure mental health professionals could find all kinds of problems with this idea, but I’m not trying to be Jesus or one of his followers.

    That said, my heartvery much goes out to the freeky blighter, and all his ilk –with whom I feel more kin than is sometimes comfortable– such as Ali’s old cat lady Yolanda, who has surely put in some hard years on the planet, trying to keep the world safe for her and her kitties.

    Yeh, I’m with Cass, she’s all het up about the “terrorist” landlord and thought it was a message from him. I expect she was fair-rated in about 1903 and is paying three Australian Shillings a week for the apartment.

    In order to get her out of her apartment, that Landlord has probably been pursuing scare tactics for about 10 years at a level of callousness and evil that, instead of giving her the heart attack he intended, have merely served to drive her insane…

    Ali, yeah, I sympathise that you need to live in her olfactosphere. But even the craziest have something to teach us all, and most of us are gleaning what wisdom we can from the vortex of her madness. Personally, I have learned that if I can figure out how to post in purple & switch to all-caps, I can really impress the penguin….

    If I had another I would send it to you. The bumper sticker reads “Cat The Other White Meat” that would put the crazy needle into the red

    hahaha DEFINITELY finding that bumper sticker and sticking it to my front door.
    I was in a store this wknd contemplating hanging all these severed head Halloween decorations from my door, but I thought she’d take that as a personal threat since she seems to think the landlord is trying to kill her and I’m in on it.
    Just an aside.. she posted a note on her own door on Friday that reads something along the lines of “Please DO NOT “LEAVE.” If you wish to speak to this tenant I am usually nearby and available by phone…” and then her phone #. I think I’m going to put one on my door (in purple marker/all caps) that says “FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO CLEARLY HAVE ZERO SENSE OF HUMOR, MY DOORMAT IS A JOKE–GET OVER IT.”

    bahahaha!!!

    I’ve owned the “GO AWAY” doormat, and when that one became threadbare, I got the “leave” one…people love it.

    I feel sad for that old lady…”hoarding” is a serious condition…

    Ali, she’s afraid that people coming to visit her (snort) are going to be intimidated into leaving because of your doormat?

    I guess if they are as crazy as her…

    Ali D, I totally LOVE that she is still putting up notes, and that you are keeping us, The General PAN Public, informed of all new occurences. A pic of that note would be a great Update for this post! This woman could put the Mad Bomber to shame, but has alot of work to do before she lives up to Anthony Grosso’s level of Crazy!!

    I totally think she’s going to become the next “Anthony Grasso.” I can see it now… a few months from now you’ll be referring this purple marker masterpiece “OMG this guy’s pulling a Yolanda Campisi” I’m thinking of posting my reply note to my door for all of the public to see? she’ll get a kick out of that and for sure send me some new hate mail.

    I love it that she lives across the corridor from you but wants you to PHONE her. You’re close enough for cans & string.

    fortunately, i own my home and the crazy cat lady across from me can’t make it across the street to see it or to complain about it.

    I cannot believe I was out of town & missed this until just now! I agree with several posts that vote this one of the best notes I’ve seen so far on PA notes…does anyone else want to get this woman’s handwriting analyzed?
    I am so headed to Target for the Warrant mat.

    Today’s word of the day at Wiktionary:

    grimalkin (plural grimalkins)

    1. A cat, especially an elderly female.
    2. An old, bad-tempered woman; a crone.


    Your neighbour Yolanda Campisi
    Wants to alarm you, Ali D
    That crazy grimalkin
    With notes on a wall can,
    She hopes, make you feel uneasy.

    She wants you to “leave”. Not really leave, just pretend leave. It’s kinda like seeing ‘Go Away’ on a doormat. Oh wait…

    This reminds me of a woman who used to live in the condo below mine. She once left us a note in which she extolled the virtues of breaking down one’s cardboard for recycling. The note was taped to a non-broken-down shipping box with someone else’s address on it. I thought perhaps she might have dropped it on my mat by accident, but a few days later there was another note taped to my door regarding the state of affairs in the recycling bins. She rented her place, but I didn’t know that until we met the actual owner at a HOA meeting. In her notes she always took special care to mention–sometimes several times–that she had been living there for five years and that she owned that place and was tired of renters like us (‘scuse plz, we actually do own our place) disrespecting that shit. My hubs and I knew she was BSing since we’d been here for three years by then and knew the people who lived there before her. I have to give her some credit, though…after several months of misdirected and we-probably-sort-of-deserved-it notes from this woman, she actually gathered enough courage to pound on my door at 3 AM to scream at my husband and I because our cat was keeping her awake with his incessant WALKING. To be fair, he is kind of a fat kitty.

    Dear Downstairs Neighbor,

    I was just wondering if, in the future, you might try leaving me the hell alone at 3 AM. I am pregnant* and if you don’t stop bothering me and my unborn child I will install security cameras AND I WILL CALL THE POLICE!! Best wishes!

    *not actually pregnant

    I can’t read her writing, it’s so sloppy. But then again, cat and garbage collecting? Nothing a dog can’t fix. The dog will eat the cats AND her garbage. Problem solved.
