All I want is a room somewhere

November 19th, 2007 · 104 comments

One loverly lady in Illinois found this note on the door of her dorm room after a long day of classes. (The identity of the note-leaver is still a mystery, as is the meaning of the phrase “dollar sign flower slams easily.”)

dear lovely ladies of this room: we appreciate and sympathize with the fact that your door is heavier than others & slams easily. However, we only request that you follow the campus policy of 24-hour courtesy and STOP SLAMMING so that all the rest of us can get the hours of sleep we need to stay as lovely as you. Many thanks, xoxo: the other ladies on your floor

Adds our submitter: “When we had our next floor meeting, I did the not-so-passive thing of calling out ‘whoever wrote the note,’ saying that we were trying our hardest to keep her ‘lovely.’”

related: We hear you, man

    I think thats a “&” sign and not a dollar sign, but the flower is kind of a mystery though.

    That flower kinda creeps me out…

    So do the Xs and Os…

    Do these chicks want to make out with submitter or something??

    Too bad someone didn’t draw a penis in pink pen somewhere on this note…

    That would be the best.

    How do I love thee, let me count the ways:

    Weirdo break at STOP SLAMMING (as noted above), check.
    Reference to school official policies, check.
    XOXO and hearts, check!

    Man, that starburst is what pushes me over the edge with this one, I must say. Bravo!

    I’d advise retorting as follows: dike off.

    Don’t slam your door you dumb butt-hole.
    Now my scared cats I must console.
    You’ve stolen peace from me,
    Now ain’t this note just lovely?
    Close your door with some dignity.
    We all are sleeping,
    Or can’t you see?
    You’ll be the death of me,
    Still I leave this note lovingly.

    My fav bit is the blue on blue. Perhaps in my lust for power tools and beer I missed some common bit of female behavior but…
    who the hell has the time/money/inclination to buy pretty blue scratch pads? If the neighbor girls were being real NORMAL college women they would be awake/out during anytime the door was being slammed. Women who are concerned about beauty sleep in college need to have their sweater sets stolen and replaced with tube tops.

    Unless ALL the other women on the floor got together, discussed the door slamming issue and elected a person to write and post the note (after the wording of the note had been unanimously agreed upon) the note write has a lot of balls signing it “the other ladies on your floor” If I lived on that floor I would be pretty pissed at the note writer for implying that I am also a nut job and agree with her.

    I suspect the notewriter to be a closet mandatory-wearer-of-the-unitard, because this note is just too perfect. Something’s up with that “heavy door”…

    I’m guessing that the door has been painted, posterised, egged, egg-shelled, puttied, plastered, taped, cellophaned, candle-dripped, buttered, peanut buttered, peanut-shelled, antiqued, gummed, shaving-creamed, whipped-creamed, expanding-foamed, easy-cheesed, cream-pied, breaded, seeded, shellacked, and Post-It noted (in that order) over the course of the semester.

    No wonder (a) it’s heavy, and (b) they slam it all the time.

    All I can think of when I read this note is the girl who lived down the hall from me in college. At the ripe age of 18 and a zaftig size 7 she wore only those knee to boob extra support panel panties under her J Crew chinos with her sweater sets (or in warm weather polo shirts with animals embroidered on them) and loafers. She was WASPY to the extreme and at night had a beauty ritual that began at 8:30pm (and somehow involved pajamas that had matching slippers and robes) and ended at 9:15pm. If disturbed (by firm door closing, laughter, joy of any kind) during her beauty ritual or after 9:15pm she would calmly explain that while might not care about themselves she preferred to be well rested for class. Since she got up at 5:00am everyday to style her hair, put on make-up, go to the gym, restyle her hair and reapply make-up (early morning at the gym is the best time to find industrious young men that she might be able to trap in marriage) she needed to sleep. We were all fine if we didn’t care if we looked like hags and were lonely spinsters well into our mid twenties but SHE had a plan for her life!

    In university I and most of the people I knew took a great deal of care in selecting stationary, since we would spend so much valuable time with it. Additionally, when most ‘normal’ college folks are out, normal door-closing likely sounds like slamming… Much like my own neighb’s footsteps sound like the coming apocalypse at 2:30 in the morning when I am trying to get to sleep (suffering from insomnia).

    When I lived in dorms I had problems during certain times of the year when the heat would automaticaly kick on and the room would get super hot. So I’d open a window. This created a draft, and the door would just SLAM SHUT sometimes. I’d always freak out afterwards, worried that I’d woken up someone or offended someone or what have you, because I’m a neurotic freak. However, nobody ever commented, perhaps because they were dealing with the same door slamming issue.

    I’m assuming that the note leaver is a rampaging asshole who can’t handle normal door activity, and sublimates rage and a feeling of helplessness with doodled flowers.

    I love how the note recipients always take such offense at the notes!!

    I’ve lived in a dorm next to a study room that had one of those doors that closes automatically…you must hold it so that it doesn’t slam and shake up the whole floor.

    It was so loud (especially at night) that it would makes us jump everytime it slammed.

    Come on!! It’s not so hard to just hold the freaking door, is it?

    Perhaps the “lovely ladies” have lovely baby boys and the Mohel slams the door?

    Sorry, but people slamming doors when they can probably hear it just as clearly as the rest of us is the most annoying thing everrrr. Live above/below/across from a chronic door-slammer and you’ll know what I mean. It takes approximately .3 seconds longer for you to shut the door with some restraint, rather than using your energy to slam it closed. Come on.

    Can I safely assume that Troy’s comment referenced in post #84 has been “trimmed”? Or is that “Heisa-d”?

    WP sort of. The comment was actually Mishee’s (I think) lamenting Troy being forgotten in the #73 compliment so I was offering Troy thanks for HIS hard work on songs … not that CB doesn’t work hard … ummm yeah

    While I am on topic – I would like to see the “Campus Policy” that states you MUST practice “24 hour Courtesy”… that would be interesting.

    At the college I work at we just had to put a “No Gum” clause in the contract the students sign when they enroll, since apparently 20-somethings haven’t been taught how to dispose of it properly yet… I wonder if this door slamming issue has been like that for a while, so they decided to add it in the Campus Policy Agreement….

    And while on that line… who the hell determines what Courtesy is? I can just imagine student court to hammer out these problems….

    Boys, take it away…

    OMG! I work at a place where the door near my desk is slammed on a regular basis. Do you think I could borrow this note and edit it to suit my situation? On second thought, the guys I work with wouldn’t even get that is was directed at them. So never mind!

    Perhaps if everyone in the college disposed of their gum on the doorjambs as they left each room there would be no more door-slamming issue.

    Just a thought.

    If they continue to slam the door, I would recommend stealing their door and stashing it somewhere. They would have a hard time slamming the door, with no door.

    Thanks Canthz B! It’s the highlight of my week. That, and the fact that my college roommate have lost touch. I wonder why.

    Oh, yes. She doesn’t have a sense of humor either.

    Re #64, 66 and 69. It’s a tricky one. Those damn homonyms.

    ‘e’ is for ‘envelope’, and ‘a’ is for???

    It’s how I remember to spell stationery when I want to write about paper, and white-out, and not a car that’s stopped in the road.

    A is for the “A” Train, stopped at the “A” station.

    That’s how I remember the “A” version.
