(Or burn)

February 12th, 2008 · 110 comments

Writes our anonymous submitter from Canada: “I lived with these girls for a year, but about six to eight months in things started to get a little strange.”

If our submitter had any doubts about how her roommates felt about her, however, the to-do lists that appeared on the fridge the weekend she was moving out of her basement room cleared things right up. (The verdict? Way harsh, Tai!)

grotsky little byotch

what a way to say goodbye

Adds our submitter: “I don’t miss them.”

      I was thinking special in the Norman Bates kind of a way. Just exactly what went on in that basement that the walls needed scrubbing, hmmm? That was Marcii’s (?) Monday list, not Megan’s moving day list. Maybe the walls were perfectly clean, but not for long! I would have seen that note and run for my life. Burn bedding (because the body is still wrapped in the bedclothes??)for god’s sake! *Plan (sacrificial) party* .

      Now there is the special people basement to complement the special people garage. Special people in PAN are not without precedent. :)

    Was she making smoked chicken down in the basement in great amounts?
    That would cover carpet, curtains, walls and bedding. I’m afraid to open the bathroom door.
    Coasters would have been a nice house-warming gift though.

      Well, I think it’s Megan that’s moving out (see white board) and now she knows all about that thank-god-you’re-going-away party her roomies will be planning as soon as they’re done disinfecting everything she’s touched.

      Which may not be quite as harsh as planning her own party but harsh, nonetheless.

    Things probably started to get a little strange after about six months because that’s when the smell from downstairs started to permeate the whole building. I go with goose, comment three: they don’t miss her either.

    I bet that more often than not, people who submit these p-a notes are simply pissed off it’s the truth, and are trying to rationalise their mistakes, rather than learn from them.

      Now, now advocacy kids, let’s play nice! Tuesday, The C-Word is going to garner that kind of attention no matter how you slice it.

      Also, as soon as I hear the phrase “recitation of fact” I know that someone’s got their panties in a bunch about something silly. Which is just going to garner more unwanted attention.

      All in all, I think the bulk of your post was very astute. I wonder about this:
      Here’s a pro tip: when you think you are normal, but everyone else in the house think you’re a dirty disgusting pig, you’re a dirty disgusting pig.

      When you say “pro tip” does this mean you see lots of PA notes like this one?

    I dunno about this one. While the note is harsh (and way immature), I suspect that Megan had it coming (if Megan=anon submitter). Sounds to me like she was a pretty gross roommate. But her roomies should have had the stones to confront her long before move-out and PAN day.

    What’s sad to me is “things started getting strange”. That tells me that those roomies had issues that they weren’t raising. And that’s not fair!!! You can’t just avoid saying what’s on your mind and then, one day out of nowhere, be a whiny bitch about it.

    On the other hand, I’ve written lists like that (but kept them private! Yeesh!) after people have moved out because they really have trashed my digs. While I think it’s important to deal with issues before they become problems, it IS pretty embarrassing (and annoying) to have say to someone: “Hey, it’s been six months now and I was wondering… do you think you might get to scrubbing that toilet sometime?”

    To be fair, most of the things on the Monday List are fairly typical activities a landlord would perform after somebody moves out. “Wash bedsheets”- can you imagine if they didn’t?

    The only thing that doesn’t make sense is the party. Who’s got money for a keg now that they’re out a third of the rent?

    I think we need to hear from Megan herself. I can think of one thing that would cause such a scrubbing fit and anger w/o Megan being a disgusting pig. Is Megan a smoker? If she is AND her smoking was allowed in the house “as long as she did it in her own room” I can see bitter, uptight roomies being pissed and HATING themselves for allowing it in the first place but nothing to be done until she moves and they can get a nice non-smoking roomie. Combine smoking with a BF that the other roomies HATE (because he eats their chicken w/o Megan knowing about it), and a lack of coaster use you get Scrub the room, burn the sheets, buy chicken and “rescue” the dresser.

    I would also like to know more about this dresser… If it is an IKEA special (which I find likely in this situation) get over it. If it is an heirloom that needs “rescuing” why the FUCK did you put it in someone else’s room?!? I also doubt that Maicii has the needed skills to refinish the dresser. (Refinishing is the only way to actually FIX water rings)

    No wonder the place smells if they’ve been using “air freshner’s” instead of “air fresheners.” The extra “e” is worth the extra $0.49.

    And even if they sprung for the fresheners instead of the freshner’s, those things do absolutely nothing. Instead of smelling like a litterbox, the house smells like litterbox and fake vanilla. Much more puketastic.

      “freshners” sounds remarkably like a slang name we use around here to mean “the short and curlies” (because, apparently, that wasn’t slang enough already). Here it is in a sentence: “Jim, if you don’t stop dicking around while we’re supposed to be helping you move, Brad and I are going to kick you right square in the freshners”.

      So, in that context, “air freshners” brings alive a whole ‘nother meaning. Ew.

      Interesting that you flat out say ‘dicking around’, but have the ‘freshners’ euphemism

      But, see, if we actually said “we’re gonna kick you straight in the balls” then that hurts all three people involved, because we’d each have an involuntary “contraction reaction”. It’s a guy thing; don’t sweat it.

      As Elaine says on Seinfeld, “I don’t know how you guys walk around with those things!”

    Is it me, or do most PAN between roomates seem to be all women? Are men just better at not being PA to roomates?

      I think it is a combination of things. If I can make sweeping generalizations based on my Hubby’s roommates in college… men are more likely to be aggressive aggressive. i.e. there are not so many “nicely” worded notes about doing the dishes, more likely the offending dishes would be smashed with a baseball bat at the next party. When men ARE PA it also tends not to be notes per say … but more likely rotting things left in odd corners, or gay porn slipped under the door/bed for uptight girlfriends to find.

      Having lived with both groups of women and groups of men (I am a man), I will say that women tend to be more P/A and let the feelings fester forever. Men will be A/A, get everything out at one time (sometimes with violence), and then forget and get back to drinking beer together.

    I think this is most passive aggressive note yet. Marcia is trying sooo hard (not) to say what she means. Talk about passive. She can’t even say it in a note that she thinks that anon was a slob. Team Anon because this cocksucker must have been the worst to live with with her deep seated repressed passivity. Marcia is looking for someone to read her mind which is JUST as bad as expecting someone to pick up after you.

    See now, if I were Megan, I’d get PA right back, and add things to Marcii’s to-do list. Such as:
    1. Stop being a bitch
    2. Brush teeth for once
    3. Buy copy of Emily Post’s Etiquette
    4. Behave like adult
    5. Have thighs repaved

    If this doesn’t elevate passive aggressive to an art form, I don’t know what does. But c’mon, submitter, surely you did something to warrant this tawdry to-do list.

    Ok… as someone that’s had many roomies over the years… they’re totally being bitchy with the lack of tact and “plan party” bit but let’s be honest here… If you are going to be renting out a room in your place to someone pretty much EVERYTHING on that To Do list is something that you should be doing before showing the room anyway.

    Maybe it’s just me, but I’m noticing the apparent under-utilization of the magnetic letters to hold the list. This would have been MUCH better if it were held in place with the magnet letters spelling out: BITCH, WHORE, PIG or SLUT. FUCKING WHORE would be great assuming you only have one of each letter (I had one of these sets when I was a kid). If there happens to be more then one set, or multiple vowels; FUCK YOU would be just fantastic. If there were, in fact,2 ‘K’s, SKANK is one of my personal favorites.

    It was meant to be as hateful as possible. If this girl had genuine cleanliness issues with ‘Anon’, they’d have been discussed long before move-out time. Apparently “Marcii” didn’t, for one reason or another, want to handle this maturely.

    It sounds like she was a slob, but that doesn’t make her roommates any less passive-aggressive for repressing their concerns about her cleanliness and then posting these notes right before she moves out instead of, oh I don’t know, telling her to her face 6 months prior that they had a problem with her mess?

  • #44   You can call Me the one moving out

    Perhaps this Marcie girl was really anal… and perhaps there wasn’t the roomie moving out was messy and she just wanted to be a bully to this girl? Perhaps she needed to buy more chicken because even though they split groceries, she would invite her friends over for dinners and eat it all? Perhaps she needed the air fresheners because she only changed the kitty litter once a month… But I guess those are only possibilities and not necessarily reality?

    Obviously, the note-writer is the stupid one here. The rampant use of apostrophes to indicate plurals in the second note makes me want to grab her by the shoulders and shake some sense into her bimbo head.
