When peevish college girls attack!

January 10th, 2008 · 105 comments

When Julie in Elkhart, Indiana saw this note from her roommate, Molly…

Molly's Pet Peive [sic]: Drippy Faucets. Please turn them off completely when you are done. Thanks

…she decided it was time to go on the offensive.

Julie's pet peeve: spelling errors! If you want me to take you seriously, make an effort :)

Then came the counter attack…

Molly's 2nd pet peeve: Having to tell ppl to turn the facet [sic] off in the first place

…and then Julie photographed the exchange and sent it to us.

When peevish college girls attack!

Game, set, match.

    hmmmm. Molly just didn’t get the hint did she? I guess that’s just a “facet” of her personality that has to be dealt with. Julie must have really rattled her; she spelled it right the first time.

    So what prize does the newbie poster get for being first???

      So what do I get for being the last jackass? And, no, Morpho, I’m not giving up the toothbrush, which I stole from Cha e’s roommate after Cha e got it from his dentist (who shoplifted it from a bitterly cold thrift store). I’m keeping my Oral-B, and I bristle (softly) at your suggestion.

      Or she could do both. Where would the fun be if not for the reply to Molly?

      Look, if you can’t spell properly, you should probably not be leaving cutesy little notes everywhere. Try talking face-to-face.

    ok julie could have turned the faucet off, molly could have said something instead of writing a note, molly should learn to spell “peeve”

      I don’t think she spelled it “facet” on purpose….in fact, I bet she abbreviated “ppl” because she wasn’t sure about the proper placement of the first “e” and the “o”….

    I’m not sure it’s quite fair of Julie to accuse Molly of making no effort. After all, she used two different color markers, and tape on all four corners. Sure the spelling and the ripped out edge of the paper leave something to be desired, but give the girl some credit.

      I need some advice, WR. I have spoken to Barbara Woodhouse, but she has never come across the problem before. I have a peeved pet peive. No matter how consistent I am with ‘i’ before ‘e’ except after ‘p’, nor how many treits I give it, some faucets of its personality are just plain drippy, nasty and trifling. What other training tips would you suggest?

    While I cannot bother to spell
    I can only speak my mind, Julie.

    Julie’s 2nd pet peeve: getting a cramp in her neck from having to turn her head at a 45-degree angle to squint at a tiny little post-it in the shape of a butterfly made of question marks so she can read what’s written there only to find yet another spelling mistake… and then forgetting to straighten her neck out before flinching.

Why am I interrogating myself about the interrogation? Will I ever stop? Will Julie turn off the ‘facet’ next time?

    To the song Jolene by Dolly Parton:

    Julie

    Julie, Julie, Julie, Julie,
    I’m begging you to turn off the faucets.
    Julie, Julie, Julie, Julie,
    Please just turn them off, because you can.

    The logic is beyond compare,
    To turn them off if you care.
    It stops the dripping, saves us money.

    My intelligence is not that high,
    Your spelling’s better, that is why
    I cannot compete with you, Julie.

    The dripping keeps me from my sleep,
    Because my sleep is not so deep
    And it’s all your stupid fault, Julie.

    I can easily understand
    Why you could easily take this stand,
    But you don’t know what this means to me, Julie.

    Julie, Julie, Julie, Julie,
    I’m begging you to turn off the faucets.
    Julie, Julie, Julie, Julie,
    Please just turn them off, because you can.

    You can choose to just ignore,
    But I will simply taunt you more,
    My notepad will allow me to, Julie.

    I had to write this note to you,
    Because my sleep depends on you
    And whatever you decide to do, Julie.

    Julie, Julie, Julie, Julie,
    I’m begging you to turn off the faucets.
    Julie, Julie, Julie, Julie,
    Please just turn them off, because you can.
    Julie, Julie.

    Did anyone think that possibly dear Julie is innocent of such peevishness? What if Molly is a sleepwalker and left the faucet on HERSELF when she got up to pee at 3:00 a.m. Hmmm? Then Molly would be her own pet peeve and all notes to Julie would have to be rescinded and apologies all ’round….

    kris’s pet peeve:
    Spelling nazis who try to make themselves seem bigger and others smaller by focusing on silly little spelling errors.
    As an English major and professional editor, yes… spelling errors jump out at me (some see dead people…I see spelling mistakes) but it’s just nasty and mean spirited to point them out in this context.

      Shouldn’t that be “mean-spirited” with a hyphen? :D

      Oh, sorry. As an “English major and professional editor” I guess you already knew that. How mean spirited [sic] of me to point that out! Carry on.

      Actually, I believe it depends on the style guide you’re using… There was a big ‘to do’ in the news a while back about the elimination of hyphenated words. I agree, though, Grammar Snobs are Great Big Meanies. I guess I’m a meanie.

    So pointing out spelling errors in your chosen field isn’t considered nasty or mean-spirited? Then that is just part of what you are paid to do, Yes? I bet you have no fun on your job.

    Probably the last comment of the day. (Sorry, got in late.) IMHO, I think Molly intentionally mispelled “facet” to further piss her room-mate off. Pretty clever if you want the feud to continue.

    Aside from not getting paid for it, I fail to see the difference between writing a note for someone else to read – especially when you want that someone to learn something in the reading – and writing, say, a magazine article.

    If the only reason to ever take care in writing something is getting money, grades, or recognition for it, than it’s a sad world indeed.

    (Also an English major and professional editor, who derives GREAT fun from her work, and who realizes that picking on people is not always synonymous with mean-spiritedness.)

    I’m thinking Molly is going to be the one who turns into a bitter middle-aged alcoholic. I think Julie will go on to become the next Tina Fey. She’s got spunk, ppl!
