“Keep in mind that this is coming from the messiest and loudest of six roommates,” says our anonymous submitter, a college student in New York. Isn’t it always?

      I think she has a point, if people use her stuff they should treat it with respect!

    Talk about control issues! She never asked that they buy their own utensils, just told them how to treat hers!
    Almost as if she hopes they never get their own and are forever dependent on The Great Alicia”!

    She says to put the utensils back in the drawer as soon as they have been washed, not in the dish washer, not out to dry, or even the copy room. I can see in the near future, that there will be a note complaining about all her wet utensils in the drawer, and how they are rotting the cabinets and stuff.

    I think Alicia let out an important step in her very thorough instructions… drying them off before putting them away.

    I can see the utensils now, each swimming in its own little puddle of dish water…

    How about this…

    Buy rolls of paper towels, but hide them in your room. Then, when you need a towel, go get one and use it, but don’t allow anyone else to touch them! Yeah, that’ll get ‘em!

    Bright tools, not one with a defect
    Cellophane shrink-wrapped, so correct
    She saw blunders, illegal lax
    They look so good that she shines them with wax

    (CHORUS) She is washing the utensils
    “Ooh, it’s so cute”
    She is washing the utensils
    When they cook, cook, cook, cook
    They leave them out- that’s when the teardrops start
    But she can’t be worried when they’re in their spot…

But I had alot more weird rules…. like how to put the bread back away after using it, and he wasn’t allowed to bring his shoes into my home… plus the “Wash Your Feet First” rule…

    In the beginning, there was Alicia. And Alicia looked upon the kitchen and saw no utensils, and a multitude of peoples eating with their hands. And Alicia, in Her unending mercy, provided the peoples with utensils, and there was great rejoicing. Until some a-hole made mac and cheese and left the dirty dishes in the sink. So Alicia called to the people and said unto them, I have given you utensils, and you defiled them, and so I will take them away. And there was much sorrow upon the land. And the peoples cried, Forgive us, O Alicia, and return us the utensils. And Alicia pitied the peoples returned the utensils, but also delivered unto them the Commandments of the Utensils, so that all the peoples might use the utensils, and Alicia also, and for many years there was peace upon the land and in the kitchen. Until some a-hole made Ramen and left the dishes in the sink and used all the Aliciadamn papertowels.

    A dishwasher is harsher, but often better at killing germs.

    Seems the roommates always have the option of buying their own utensils. It is frustrating not being able to find your favorite tools (or finding them dirty).

    Her message is rather strident, though and the wiggly underlining is fabulous!

    Since this is a game of particulars, how about:

    1.The paper is obviously ripped, cut or torn from the paper pad in a very messy fashion.

    2. the k in Kitchen appears to be capitalized which would be easier to distinguish if she had taken care of number 3

    3. With the exception of the date, she did not stay on the given line. If she wanted unlined paper, she could have written it on a paper towel and reimbursed herself, maybe even writing the expense off her taxes as part of her job of keeping the other roommates in line.

    4. no indention of at the beginning of the paragraph.

    5. “Not the dishwasher or leave them out to dry.” is not a complete. Sentence.

    In conclusion, if she wants to leave such notes, it is best practice to cover herself so that people like me can’t come by and make her look. Like a hypocrite. For Fun!

  • #67   the dawd bang

    This one time in college, i had 3 room mates. 2 were very type A, the other one was a slob like me. One of the type A (lets call him A1) guys had a terrible phobia of people using a fork in the butter. This was the beginning of many good arguments all started with a fork full of butter. I never had so much fun learning to butter my toast with a fork.

    The other type A (A2) was very germ-a-phobic. I almost drove this computer geek to violence after taking a bath in the upstairs bathroom, and conveniently forgetting to drain my “pool of filth.” He finally broke after i used his towel and folded it neatly on his labeled spot on the towel rack…wet.

    PA is the only way to deal with troublesome room mates.

    Go team don’t bother to clean the utensils.

    As a cooking enthusiast, I have to say that I would be pretty annoyed to come home after work, find my spatula dirty and therefore, either have to wash someone else’s saliva off of it or use a Wendy’s fork to cook. But I would go for straight aggressive and keep all my shit to myself, in my room, NOT sharing.

    #50 Anglophile: brilliant. May I add:

    And in those days it came to pass that Alicia smote the Roommatites mightily with her purple calligraphy pen. And the Roommatites trembled in anger saying, “Of those who inhabit this house, Alicia is the biggest slob of all.” Henceforth those Roommatites neither washed nor dried the holy utensils, nor would they replace the utensils in the drawer. A plague of food and water spots soon fell over their house. “Fuck Alicia,” saith the Roommatites.

    The roommates should go and buy a TON of their own shit and take up all the space in the kitchen. As for the paper towels, that’s just nickle-and-dime foolishness. You’re saving money by living with roommates in the first place. If you can’t actually share space, then live alone.

    This incident reminds me of when I was in my early 20s in NYC. I had three roommates, one of whom was a passive aggressive pain-in-the-ass. She had a VCR that she kept in her room and the rest of us thought it was rude that she wasn’t sharing with the rest of us. One night, the three of us came home, went into her room (she was still out), unhooked the VCR, and watched a movie in the living room. I’m realizing in retrospect that that was a little rude.

    I think the calligraphy pen is an indication that Allicia is a slob, who can’t find a Bic anywhere in the mountain of clutter that is her life, so she grabs the calligraphy pen from her art major roommate Shaneekwa’s pen carousel, because while Shaneekwa can’t seem to find the silverware drawer, she is very particular about her school supplies.

    What is it about having a roommate that makes some people fight every battle? Someone mentioned a roommate that couldn’t handle a fork in the butter… WTF? Aren’t there more pressing issues in life?

    And I wonder where people learn this ‘nickel and diming’ behaviour? Didn’t they ever learn to share? Or to relax?

    Wow, doesn’t Alicia know that leaving them out to dry is BETTER for her utensils? Towel drying can damage them esp. if they are being hand washed rather that put in the dish washer.
    Alicia sucks. If your stuff is too fragile to handle normal use (use then dishwashing, air drying et all) then don’t let the roommates use it.

    Upon further note review, I contend that Alicia must wear the unitard.

    Why? Because, as she states, her frustration stems from not being able to use or find her own dishes. Why then should she take it out on communal utensil usage? Reminds me of Dad losing his keys and telling us kids, “OK, No TV Tonight!”

    Uh, if you go back and read the note again, she’s not saying don’t use the dishwasher to clean the utensils, she’s saying don’t LEAVE them there after they are clean — put them back in the drawer instead. Her roommates are lucky they live with her and not me. I’d lock the damned things up and never let anyone use them at all. Let them buy their own fucking spatulas, whisks, potato ricers, vegetable peelers, measuring spoons, apple corers, cherry pitters, lemon zesters, melon ballers, microplanes, cheese graters, etc.

    potato ricer? microplanes? How many cheese graters does she own? The mere impossibility of the melon ballers action is enough to spark curiosity. I say if she has such exotic items, she should be happy that they are being used by others. Furthers culinary education.

    Joe, that just brings us back to the air dry thing

    (also the odds of having a dishwasher load ready for IMMEDIATE washing, drying and putting away each time you use her utensils is pretty slim. Not to mention that it would require the person who used the kitchen tools to hangout with the dishwasher from start of wash to end so that the IMMEDIATE drying and putting away can happen. Thhhbbbtt I DO have my own all of that stuff, I DID provide it for my roommates when I had them and easier than freaking out about the dishes is “taxing” their food. Use my electric mixer, cooling racks and cookie sheets to make cookies? I’m taking one! and we all got along very well.)

    “I want to reinforce this with a reminder to THOROUGHLY wash them and put them back in their proper place IMMEDIATELY after use. Not in the dishwasher or leave them out to dry.”

    She did not say, “leave them in the dishwasher”, so the most natural reading is not to wash them in the dishwasher, but rather by hand.

    If people can’t or won’t treat your things properly when you lend them out, you stop letting those people borrow your things.

    I let one of my sisters borrow a book once. It came back with the cover torn almost completely off and with crumbs and who knows what in between the pages. When I asked her about it she said she hadn’t realized it’d even happened. No apology, no remorse.

    Guess what? I don’t let her borrow things from me anymore.

    Room mates are lame for not wanting to clean dishes. Alicia is lame for not telling them they can’t use them any more (which is what she really wants).

    Reimbursement for paper towels is just insane.

  • #97   WanderingPenguin bang

    I have read all of the posts again and nothing that has been said here can shift me from my original opinion: they are Alicia’s “things” and nobody is forcing her roommates to use them. If they want to do so, then they must abide by her rules no matter how anal they seem to be. Since Alicia said she already spoke about this, then it’s not coming as a surprise to the others in the home. She can make up whatever bloody rules she wants to and she should be able to expect them to be followed …. or her things to simply be left alone. If the roommates think she is the messiest and loudest, then they should write their own note(s) about those issues (and, obviously, send them in to us)… but that doesn’t change the fact that Alicia most certainly can dictate how her personal kitchen implements should be used.

    Does that mean anybody has to think she’s anything less than a lunatic? Of course not… but that’s a different matter. I think Alicia’s next step is to buy a locker and keep it in the kitchen – and that would take up valuable Hot Pocket space.

    And of course, the paper towel thing is just ridiculous. That part they can simply ignore. Or maybe put up some kind of paper towel tracker on the fridge so she can actually witness them taunting her. I’m all for that.

    I lived in a house with six other people when I first moved to Toronto.The only real rule that we had was the dish list;the dishes get done every day,no matter how many or few,and the next day the next name on the list did the same.This worked well until I went on vacation for two weeks.Every dish in the house was piled in every available place in the kitchen.When I asked if any one in the house possessed a modicum of common sense the two dorks in pre-law started spouting off about binding verbal contracts.

    I bought two weeks worth of paper plates and moved out at the end of the month.I’ll bet the case is still pending.

  • #100   unholyghost2003 bang

    They are Alicia’s belongings. Smart roommates would stop using them after this note, if only to avoid the headache. I must wonder though if Alicia extends the same curtesy to the other roommates. Does she put her stinky feet on the couch and hog the remote (the remote that goes with the TV purchased and provided by a different roommate and the couch that was provided by yet another roommate) I am reading my own life experience into this, as everyone does, and SOMETHING about Alicia’s caligraphed note makes me think she is one of THOSE roommates. The ones who seem to think that the stuff THEY provide for communal use must be treated the way THEY want it treated and the stuff provided by the other roommates for communal use can be treated any way the user sees fit. These roommates also tend to be the ones providing things like kitchen tools and never the stuff like couches or electronics. So THEIR stuff is easy to deny the other roomies access to, while if the other roomies want her to keep her stank feet off of the couch they have to put the couch in storage and thus deny themselves the use of it too. These people also tend to only write notes like this AFTER they have been yelled at for the 1000th time for their own gross behavior.

    nuh – uh.

    In the competitive world of unitard fashion, so far Alicia struts the mostest. She can’t just claim public storage space throughout the kitchen as her own and expect that nobody will touch her stuff. Excessive conditions like having to run it all through an Autoclave upon finishing are just a smoke screen- she wants her utensils at the ready when she needs them, whether they get in your way our not. If that’s her deal, then she should tote them around in a portable utensil travel kit, and keep the drawers free for common-use cooking utensils.

    “Guys, I want to be clear from the start. Nobody gets to use my brick pizza oven I just installed, unless you are willing to wire-brush the walls while they are still warm.”

    “Alicia, what happened to the toaster oven?”

    “Duh! There’s isn’t any ROOM for a toaster oven!”

  • #104   WanderingPenguin bang

    Then buy your own utensils and pile them in on top of hers. It still doesn’t give anyone the right to do whatever they want with her stuff. If there are issues that she is ignoring, then that is a whole separate affair and perhaps company should be parted. But nothing written here so far gives anyone the right to ignore Alicia’s stated “rules of engagement” for her own things. If they should be stored in her room, fine – then only she gets to use them and somebody better fork out the dough for a second apple-corer “a toute de suite.”

    While I agree that the utensils are Alicia’s, and that she can make up whatever rules she wants around their use, that doesn’t mean that her belongings will be used in accordance to her rules.

    I think these are just things, items that can easily be replaced. If it is that important to you, don’t share them.

    Re #127 – AAG: My mom used to tell me to eat my supper because of “the poor starving children in India”. That was the mantra. I don’t know why she chose India specifically, but choose it she did. Well, one day I found out she was cooking something I hated for dinner so I went upstairs and addressed an envelope to “The Poor Starving Kids, c/o India”. I kid you not.

    When it became “that time” at the dinner table, I asked to be excused. Mom said, “Eat your peas! Think of all…etc. etc. etc.” I pulled out the envelope from under my bum, stuffed in a forkful of peas, licked it, sealed it and asked her for a stamp.

    My Dad, who thought it was hysterical but could never let on to Mom, had to bring me my next few meals in my room as I was a) not allowed to eat with the “grown ups”; and b) unable to sit on any kitchen chairs for about a week, in any event.

    I learned to curb my sense of humour for the rest of my life at home. :)

    Dear Alicia, I don’t mind if you use calligraphy. I don’t think that it too much to ask to learn calligraphy before you actually use it. When you are done with the calligraphy, please put the pen back in the lock box- not next to it or on top, but inside so that when I need it I can use it. Thanks in advance! ~Liz

    As stated in the beginning, I do not mind you using the “fucking delicious” line, as long as you attempt to be creative with it and Know Your Role. I want to REINFORCE this with a reminder to THOROUGHLY attempt to be creative and know your role IMMEDIATELY after you read the note. Not half-assed attempts at creativity or leaving the joke out to dry. I am trying to be generous, and it’s frustrating when I can’t even use the “fucking delicious” line when I want to. Also, please remember to get bent when you criticize me or reimburse those who already do. Thank you in advance for your sarcasm.

    #212: sed-syntactical post corrections: I think not.

    You know when you’re by the side of the road & a car with a bunch of teenagers goes past & one of them yells something out at you, & it sounds like an insult, but you can’t even hear it because the car’s moving & they’re slurring? (Does that happen to the rest of you? Or is it just me?) Anyhow we get a lot of the internet equivalent of that on this site, & normally I just try to ignore it. But good lord, “cb”. You’ve posted, what, three times? And made at least as many blunders. Get help. If you come back (which please don’t) can you try to avoid calling yourself “cb”, “wp”, “tc”, “sm” et cetera. If geek enough to be vomiting sed syntax at us, you know that the number of letter combinations available rises exponentially with pseudonym length; it should be easy to find something no one else is already called.

I retaliated by not washing my own utensils!

    I would like to say that once I had posted #215 (“Sorry, no.”) it occurred to me that it might be taken as serious commenting, so I made a follow-up post (#216 or whatever it was at the time) which consisted of merely a grinning yellow face. Somewhere along the line, this was swept up into the trash bin along with whatever the hell else disappeared (I wasn’t in here yesterday so I don’t know what happened).

    So, SHARKFAN, if you are still reading and – more importantly – still care, #215 was a joke.

    a lot of this stuff isn’t technically passive aggressive. passive aggression involves the person implying that the listener’s stance is hostile, even though it clearly isn’t. a textbook example is starting a sentence with “i know you’re probably going to yell at me but . . .” before the listener has even had a chance to react they are put on the defensive, the onus now on them (if they accept it) to demonstrate that they’re not hostile. Even more subtle and simple is saying “relax!” to someone who is not agitated in any way. this is a button for a lot of people – try telling people to relax for no reason and see how long it takes to get someone in a righteous fury.

Perhaps this poor, overwrought girl thought she would come off as somehow more worthy of her roommates respect, and thus their complicity, if she used a calligraphy pen to transform her psychotic handwriting into something that commands authority…. of course, poor dear didn’t realize that the pen is not magic – one has to KNOW how to make the pretty writing….
