Holy matrimony

December 4th, 2007 · 105 comments

Karolina in Dallas says she typically tries to wait her husband out in situations like this one, but she almost always ends up caving — “particularly when mold is involved.”

    The only problem with a note like this is it won’t work on atheists.

    Now that is what I call a murky liquid!

    The writing is all uniform and there is no punctuation. I would definitely have to say that “Jesus Punctuates”.

    If this was my husband’s, well, I’d probably smother him in his sleep…

      The mould has evolved, I think,
      And crawled away via the sink.
      The sewers now swarm
      With this new life-form.
      Our doom is nigh, thanks to this drink.

      I can’t bring myself to type “mold.” At least I’m not from Brazil; they probably call it “maoualdo” or something.

      Actually we call it “mofo”. But “mouldy” is “mofado”, close enough ;-)

    She can try what I do with my son if he doesn’t clean up his toys when he’s supposed to: put it/them in a box and see if he misses it.

    Sometimes I give a warning that if he doesn’t pick up XYZ items, I will be putting it or giving it away, sometimes I don’t :-D

    Here’s a crazy idea, has she considered putting the cup in the dishwasher herself? For fuck’s sake, why do people have to pick fights over nothing with their own spouses? When he’s banging his secretary and you’re raising the kids by yourself, be sure to pat yourself on the back about how you stood your ground on the dirty cup issue.

      Nathaniel,
      Do you HONESTLY think this is about ONE moldy cup? Are you TRULY that dense? This cup is simply one example of the multitudes of dirty dishes he leaves (or if he is like my husband hides) around the house.
      So what you are saying is that expecting her husband to help with the house work is an offense that makes adultery reasonable? Not only do you seem to think that there is no need for the husband to help with the dishes you have assumed 1)they have a dishwasher 2) she isn’t alergic to mold.

      GAH! Also, if the tables were turned and SHE left nasty moldy cups around and HE left a note asking her to clean the cup; then what Nathaniel? Would it be O.K. for her to go out and screw the cute intern and leave HIM to raise the kids alone? Or is that situation only O.K. if the WOMAN doesn’t want to be saddled with 100% of the house work?

      And those who claim he’ll be out banging his secretary are probably the ones who would do such a thing to their wives. Sad, that.

    That looks like an attempt to make some wine. Delicious wine.

    That’s how wine was invented. Gogoroth the caveman wouldn’t clean up his rocks full of berry juice, and his wife was waiting him out. Then, in a fit of pique, he said, “Ak-ak-rok-ruk”, which is translated to, “What? I was still drinking it! It’s still good! Watch!”

    He then took a mighty swig, and promptly went blind.

    Well, did I ever say the first attempt at wine worked?

    So, lay off, sister.

    The only thing I would have to wonder is, are the chores are divided between the couple, and if so, who’s turn is it to do the dishes ?
    Does she Nit-Pick at what she decides to clean ?
    Has the husband ever cleaned up after her ?
    Or is it a rule of “what’s mine is mine, what’s your’s is your’s” ?
    Because that would be fun to figure out in an issue of community property if they decide to divorce over the moldy cup.
    Besides…..it looks like Koolaid ( I think )

    Does she have kids? If yes, she should’ve just asked him to “do it for the kids”… if not, “do it for me”. Somehow “the love of all that is holy” has become more important than either, like he’s some clergyman who’s more likely found at the parish than at home.

    And in any case, if you really wanted it to get to him you would wait for mold to grow… and put it in a conspicuous place for him.

    Note how mold growth is an essential ingredient for this method to work. Prior to its growth, said object would not look out of place in a typical clean home environment (unless it starts crusting, maybe).

    If I wrote that note it’d probably be “IN ALL THE TIME I’VE KNOWN YOU I NEVER KNEW YOU HAD ANY INTEREST IN MOLD CULTIVATION BUT IF FOR SOME REASON YOU DO PLEASE DO IT IN A PETRI DISH NOT IN THE CUP THANK YOU”

    If you want to leave punctuation out then go all the way, don’t do a half-assed job by leaving a period at the end, makes it look like PAN writer’s remorse.

    She just needs to suck it up and wait it out for a few more days. Then when the mold has really started to own the cup she should just toss it into the trash can. Preferably right on top so it is seen by hubby. In my experience, I have found that when you pitch a few cups (bowls, plates) and replace them with paper or plastic ones, all of a sudden everyone is concerned about the dishes. Of course you have to have the mismatched, cheapies to begin with so it doesn’t seem like you’re just being a crazy bitch.

    I find that if you offer the dirty cup to his mother when she visits, he’s a lot more fastidious about washing the dishes.

    Some of the above posters assume the woman is always nagging the man to clean up. Heh, around here that note would be just as likely to come from him as it would from me, depending on what thing needs to be cleaned/washed/replaced.

    I am more likely to let dishes get moldy than my fiance. He cooks dinner, so if I am fed there are no complaints. If he ever decided to stop cooking, then the P-A notes might begin.

      AP – Just call me “germophobe-pushover”! – LOL

      On the other hand, someone was stealing chocolates from a box in my desk at work once. I replaced the chocolates with some erasers and a note that said “STOP stealing my chocolates!” So – I’m not totally P/A exempt!

      No, see, that’s where you replace the chocolates with laxatives. Then you sit back and watch the hilarity ensue.

      ROFL Ariadne.

      My dad was in the Air Force, and had a guy he worked with (who outranked him by a couple of months) that used to steal chocolates off my dad’s desk. So my dad replaced the chocolates with Ex-Lax chocolates. The guy never caught on, but he did lose a lot of weight, lol.

      LOL, Wade and WP! I personally don’t mind if someone takes candy or chocolates that I put out on my desk to be shared, but going into my desk drawer is too much. I’m pretty sure I know who the perp. was, btw – she was laughing the hardest at the note and the erasers in the box. :)

      Strangely, despite my self-proclaimed germophobia, I often have old coffee cups on my desk at work. No mold production yet, though! There was some milk in our boardroom that turned to cottage cheese over the weekend once though – ewwww.

    It seems the most passive-aggressive thing about this note is that Karolina submitted it here. That raises an ordinary note to an internet-ional incident.

    Communion? For the love of all things holy?

    Yeah, I’d def choose battles.

    If I had a husband.

    Or someone. With which to choose battles.

    Agreed Cre8tvewmn,

    Are we allowed to post our own P/A acts here?

    On another note: Isn’t this how Penicillin was invented? For the good of humankind, please save the mold!

      Yes, post your own P-A acts here. Please! More! More! More!

      There are so many notes I should have kept, but didn’t, both from myself and various roommates I’ve had.

    My hubby refuses to wash dishes; yet he hates eating off paper plates. LOL!

    He will at least have the common courtesy of rinsing his cups (or plates, whatever the case may be). If my small children can do it, so can he.

    And if he chooses to run off with the secretary, so be it. (He’s got to actually have the office job first. *snort*)

    It IS all part of an arcane religous ritual.

    Note that the left side of the note, when read top-to-bottom, becomes the ancient offering prayer of the Gnostic priests, “Please the all-holy, this cup!”

    As bad as the mold sounds, nothing holy would even go near it

      I don’t know, Jodi. All those holy men who had “visions” were out in the wilderness, starving and probably eating mushrooms (and moldy ones at that). ;)

      I suspect this may have (unknowingly, of course) given some people the more interesting parts of religion out there. For example, in the Bible it tells of how Elijah saw a ‘wheel in the sky’. There are other examples of course but I’m not interested in getting lynched. Not today, anyways.

    Want a pet? Grow your own!

    That’s right, folks, for a limited time you can buy this mould-pet starter kit for on;y £4.99 from your local JML stockist. All you need to do is add water, bacteria and wait a little while to have your very own furry bundle of love.

    My roommates and I clean our own dishes. Once, my roommate let her dishes pile up for so long that they filled up both sinks and covered the counter. When my other roommate complained that the house was smelly, she denied that they were hers. When we told her there was no way they were our dishes, she said she’d clean them the next day. After 3 more stinky days, I finally washed the dishes myself. What I found were maggots in the sink. Lovely!

    I deal with moldy glasses ALL the time. My roommate (same maggoty one) loves to drink milk and leave her glasses out.

    Oh, wow. So flickr just enabled stats and I followed this photo’s referrals back here only to find this. Erm, ok, a few things:

    1. This was a joke and everyone involved understood it as such.

    2. I am not religious.

    3. It was tea.

    4. I did not submit the photo to this web site. I added it to the flickr PA Notes group per a friend’s suggestion and this website’s owner contacted me months later for an ok to add it here.

    5. Holy* crapstick, you guys actually sit around critiquing the punctuation and grammar on these bad boys? Who knew! I’ll have to remember that next time I want to have an e-mail laugh with my husband.

    Or, you know, not.
