Recipe for roommate discord

November 17th, 2007 · 200 comments

Our anonymous submitter in Detroit tells us his roommate is a repeat offender when it comes to passive-aggressive note-leaving. This time around, he went with a note AND a text message. (“And it’s not even my fault!” our submitter protests.)

The oven was left on 450 again. Don't use the oven if you can't turn it OFF

    Wow, I would like to know how it wasn’t submitter’s fault! Who left the oven on? ‘Cause if it was submitter, then I am on Team Roommate! Turn off the damn oven!

    P.S. Thank you PAN God, you are a loving and gracious Deity!!

    I cook at 450 all the time when there is something I want to cook quickly, like pizza. Turn the damn oven off! How is it not your fault? If it was your company who turned it on it is still your fault for not paying attention!

    For sure. Thats more like “im in a hurry just set it on fire already” than cooking. Which is why im Team Roommate too. Hello, electricity is expensive!

    Not only is dying in a fire not fun, but also a HUGE PG&E (ok, I’ll go generic and say electric since it’s Detriot) bill would REALLY piss me off, and would then in turn result in my leaving another note bitching about the price of the utilities!

    I am actually baking cookies RIGHT NOW, I my oven is at 350. Although, when I make Texas Toast it goes to 425 – maybe they were making that and were in a hurry?

    Once the oven gets turned on, it’s hard to turn it off.

    #6: When you switch modes while texting (from numbers to text or T9 to abc), the first word is always capitalized.
    He should have said “450. Again.” which would have made a better point, I think.

  • #17   Wade bang

    Good catch, Amy.

    I don’t switch over to numbers often, since I use text and the number comes up after I work through all the letters.

    Maybe switching over to type 450 reflects the extra effort.

    Maybe leaving the oven on is passive aggression on the roommate’s part.

    After all, if the roommate is banned from using the oven, then note-leaver has to do all the cooking…

    I have lived in many places where I’ve had to turn on the oven in the morning just to make the place habitable.
    Well to be honest it was always the non stop bitching of which(witch)ever woman I was living with that forced me to do this. Coincidently ,450 was usually the temperature used.

    Yeah, 451 would definitely indicate a case of book burning in the oven, which would totally merit passive aggression in note and text form. Though, really, who needs justification for PAN?

    Nice, sending a text message. I’d have sent a follow-up voicemail, email and set up a website with up-to-date oven temperature updates.

    With that text message, did they reply by saying “Dike off”?

    Watch out – turn off the oven after
    You’re a fool, baby, if you think we’re not in danger
    I’m ass-kicking any guy
    Burning down the house

    Hold tight – wait till the baking’s over
    Hold tight – then turn the stove off whether
    It was you, or someone you invited to stay
    Burning down the house

    Here’s your ticket pack your bag, time for jumpin’ overboard
    The transportation is here
    Florida is not too far, don’t let me know where you are
    I’m frightened of dying on fire

    Phone’s wet – hey pull it outta that bucket
    Shake it out – then quickly toast it at, like,
    Three hundred sixty five degrees
    Burning down the house

    It was not your fault, you say; sometimes I make mistakes myself
    But this is just a disgrace
    I would like this lease to work, but if the oven dial’s not checked
    We’re gonna burst into flame

    This house – it’s out of the ordinary
    But alright – and I don’t want to burn my body
    My computer’s emailing you on “repeat”
    Burning down the house

    I’ll text you and leave you notes and you have not seen nothin’ yet
    I’m at the end of my tether
    I don’t know if you expect a blitzkrieg, but I’m quite upset
    I’m frightened of dying on fire

    Wow it just amazes me that one little overused word can strike such terror in the hearts of intelligent people.Words that propagate hatred should be used again and again and again until their power disappears.

    As for calling me a racist,that’s just laughable!I call them as I see (or read) them.I have defended,played with and against,insulted,fought, loved and hated EVERY colour, creed and sex that I have ever encountered.

    If one word can inspire such fear in you, then I suggest you start burning books(starting with Clemans) and re-write history as you see fit.(see Huxley)

    I know exactly what happened here. My old roommate used to do the same thing: use the oven and then rather than turn it off, turn it up to broil when he was done thinking as long as he turned the dial one way or the other it would turn off and there was no need to actually look at the dial to see if it was off. Grrrr!

    His GF used to use the oven part of the toast-r-oven to make toast, not having any concept of how a toast-r-oven works and then take her toast out and just leave the on. No clue that it needed to be turned off when she was done.

    First, about the note itself – if that’s still allowed in this thread: Maybe the roommate left the oven on at 450 hoping the self-cleaning feature would activate and somehow magically clean the outside of the door. Seriously, wtf is up with that? Ew.

    Secondly, I remember a Saturday Night Live sketch back in the very early days with Chevy Chase and Richard Pryor where CC said “that word” in a word-association test within a job interview and Pryor’s comeback was “dead honky”. Ah, remember the 70′s when race relations were so good that white people could use that word satirically and it was truly funny? Boy, those were the days, huh? I wonder what ever happened to those good times?

    Thirdly, and I know I am going to get some grief for this but I honestly can’t not say it: weren’t you, like, 5 years old in the 60s, CB? I mean, I’m just sayin’….

    And lastly – referencing a comment made a couple of times earlier – if only the “mysterious oven leaver-onner” had turned the dial one degree hotter, the note left on the outside would have simply burst into flames. His gain, but surely our loss. :D

    Dear WP – The only thing worse than being patronized with a lecture starting with “Well…” is for someone to miss the point entirely. Perhaps I wasn’t clear – I used to live in a VERY white, very small town. Much of the population is first generation Portuguese and Italian. Now, I don’t know Portuguese but I know the equivalent of the N-word in pretty much every language by now. And hatred looks the same, too. My daughter had classmates who would not invite her to their parties because her father is black & Native American. How fucked up is that?!! So my point is those Portuguese came here from somewhere else, too, but now want to discriminate against my daughter, whose great-great grandfather (full blood Cherokee) was here first! Also, I read every comment, even the ignorant ones, because it is interesting. I comment because I can. Just like you do. And you are not the boss of me or this website. And to complete my flurry of sentence fragments, it is not in your best interest to argue with an Aries. We are tireless and we like conflict. LOL

    Well, wicked opinion, let me see if I have this right:

    So you are saying that it’s the absolute worst thing of all for someone to have missed the point entirely – even worse than the “transgression” that started the whole shit-slinging in the first place? I just want to be clear on that, because you have missed the point twice, which is that 1) AA Guy never actually directed that moniker at anyone in the first place but rather was guilty of using it (obviously unwisely but I would wager unknowingly as well) to make a far different point and certainly won’t do it again; and 2) the people who were the most upset about the whole thread in the first place have already posted here that they would rather just move on and forget this ever happened. But no, you have to come in here stirring up the pot again “because you can”.

    Well, you go right ahead and do that but I don’t see how even you cannot see the irony of telling me “you are not the boss of me” and “it’s not in your best interest to” in the same damn sentence.

    WO
    HOW do you know your daughter wasn’t invited to the parties due to her race? Did the children or their parents tell you this? Or did you “just know?” I ask because I get a bit tired of explaining to people “I don’t hate you because you are black/Indian (dot or feather)/asian/hispanic/other I hate you because you are an ASSHOLE”. So are you SURE your daughter wasn’t just being a little brat to at least some of these kids?

    Take it from the kike (Married to a gentile with a FOTB GERMAN Grandmother) ignore the horrible behavior; revel in the positive stereotypes (Why yes, I AM good with money, very smart too!) and move on with your life!

    WP – AA Guy stuck his own head up his own ass, then backpedaled as fast as he could, spewing bitterness the whole way, as soon as everyone jumped on him. That’s classic bully behavior. He is entitled to his opinion, but I will always take issue with someone using “that” word. Being ignorant (in the uknowingly sense that you indicated) is still no excuse for bad behavior. It is also “everyone’s” option to move on and forget this ever happened. Lots of people would love to do that – like Katrina victims and kids with cancer. Unfortunately, you cannot solve a problem with polite silence. And since when am I not one of the people who were the most upset? This is not some high school clique, this is a public website with comments encouraged and enabled for EVERYONE. I don’t want to be in your little PAN club – I just like the site. So don’t worry, I won’t be wearing the same lip gloss as you on the bus tomorrow.

    Dear Unholyghost person – It is generally known among humans that you DO NOT denigrate someone’s child, except in the case of fully documented evidence and even then, it’s touchy. It is also generally known and recently learned on this very website that talking out of your ass about something you know nothing about will bring you trouble. I moved away from the town I mentioned because my daughter was called an N-word to her face when she was 9. By an adult/parent. So yes, I do know for a fact that was the reason. Imagine how that felt to her and maybe you will see why I feel so strongly about the situation. You might want to rethink your Sarah Silverman act – going too far is not funny, it’s tacky. I do revel in positive stereotypes but that doesn’t mean I shouldn’t call someone on their behavior when THEY do the opposite.

    WO, your first post was # 102. Since I have been following this thread, it didn’t require any “research” at all. Don’t flatter yourself – you’re really not worth it.

    There’s also nothing ironic about it. I don’t recall ever telling you to stop being an ass to me directly. In fact, I don’t recall telling you to do anything. I merely pointed out that you blatantly missed the part in the thread where the plea was made to move on to another topic other than the one you came in screaming about. You responded with some idiotic hyperbole about “the only thing worse than being patronized…is for someone to miss the point entirely”. Were that to be true, then it’s clear that both being patronized and having someone miss your point is far worse than any name-calling.

    So, erm….what exactly was your point again? Seems to be murky…

    And to reiterate: you have yet to make one single post – salient or otherwise – about the original P/A note at the top of this page.

    I have to go now – I have a date in a snow bank for some frozen custard. Mmmmmm…..

    WO is the best Troll ever. Look at the shit stirring, then coming back once everything has settled to re-stir the turd. All of this done w/o being a blatant or immediately obvious Troll. A masterpiece of Trolling. Sadly WO you have overplayed you hand and now have been spotted for what you are. But truly thank you, I have not seen a thread trolled so expertly in a VERY long time!

    “So I was trolling the Internet at work (grin*) and came across http://www.passiveaggressivenotes.com (I totally had to say that cheer-style to check my spelling – be aggressive! B-E aggressive! B-E-AGG…okay.) This is one of “those” sites. You know, the ones where people make snarky comments and then disappear into the great unknown of another website where they will do the same thing. Does anyone else see the irony of that ESPECIALLY on a site that is all about passive aggressive behavior? HA! Admittedly, I am one of those people.”

    It would actually suck if Andrew has a different carrier… not only does he send a P/A Text Message, but he docks Joey a text in his monthly allowance, or if he had already gone over, then Andrew should pay Joey the 10 cents or whatever he was charged for the message…

    And a few cents more for the energy it took Joey to check the text message. Just like the chick who wanted to charge for saliva…

    Let’s see if this works…. *CTRL-F*….type in “wicked opinion”…. previous…. previous…. previous….previous…. nope. Nothing on this thread from you that even remotely resembles an “on-topic” post.

    So now it’s not enough you’re a professional shit-disturber (according to the snip of your blog post, you do this at work) but you’re a liar as well?

    You are really going to have to get a new dictionary because you like to fling the word “irony” around incorrectly. And wasn’t it you who made some snarky comment about our “little club” on here… and yet your own blog says this is one of those sites where people post once and move on?

    You might need to find another hobby, because you’re really not very good at this trolling and flaming thing.

    But thanks for being so fascinated with me that you read every single one of my posts intently, whether they are meant for you or not. That brings a tear to me eye, lassie. And way to be quick with the comebacks: your last one only took, what? 17 1/2 hours? It really is all about the……. TIMING, isn’t it?

    Ho-hum.

    Didn’t that sanctimonious asshat say on her own blog that she was “trolling” the internet? Why, then, would she choose to highlight that word as if to stress that she was not trolling this website? She’s really not very bright, is she?

    The best part of all is she has made so many snazzy replies and she has yet to offer proof to refute my statement that not one single post was on topic. She has changed the subject, attacked from a different angle, called us names, stamped her little feet and pouted, but she has not addressed the one salient point I really made about her. Does that remind any of you of the common habits of any particular political party?

    Well, I guess it’s true: it takes one to know one. And who would know more about being a “Republican”…..

    ….than a “Republican”.

    Now if she had only said we could take our “little grade school clique, stuff it in the oven, turn it up to 450 and walk away from it”, then she might have been had an interesting comment for this thread. Sadly, it didn’t happen.

    I’ll bet you that cheap-ass peeling-paint Nokia phone that she’s lying about not coming back, though. Any takers?

    The sad thing is she is quite lucid and has an excellent command of the English language (other than the word “ironic”, perhaps ;) ). I really would rather she had realized what exactly was being said to her and not continued digging that grave. If she does come back I’d be very surprised if future comments by her were uninteresting or even off-topic.

    But really, I have always said this: when you are new anyplace in the world, try to get the lay of the land before you cause a scene. In this particular case, the battle was long over and all the participants had begged for it to be left alone. She decided she was above all that and said so unapologetically. The result was completely predictable. Sadly.

    Not only did you come back – as I promised – but you apparently checked out other threads. Are you saying that post on the window-kissing thread was an imitation of your style? Because it was sure juvenile, but if the shoe fits…

    Do you suppose you could stop being a dick long enough to actually post something interesting on any one of the myriad threads on this site? That sure would be swell.

    BTW, our Thanksgiving was last month. Y’all enjoy yours, though, and thanks for the sentiments. How many hours will we have to wait for your next pearl of wisdom, what with the holiday and all? I truly cannot wait.
