Cue the violins

July 25th, 2008 · 209 comments

When Sheena in Austin spotted this note on her neighbor’s front door, she couldn’t help but wonder: “If your doormat has sentimental value, maybe it should be hanging on your wall instead of sitting on the ground?”

To whoever stole my doormat: PLEASE bring it back! It was a gift & has sentimental value! Be a grown up! Thanks, Alex

    The doormat is quite similar to the umbrella in its elusive, escapist nature; often disappearing if unattended.

    Sentimental doormats are always soggy with the weeping.

    But really, if you loved your doormat so much why not put it on the INSIDE of the threshold? If it got stolen then at least your list of suspects would be smaller.

      I think that might be the apartment # instead of her name…they do that sometimes in Austin, particularly if one’s condo or apartment is close to UT or a large body of water. I used to have assorted neighbors about whom I knew little and certainly not their actual names because they always introduced themselves as “Hi, I over in 3B and wondered if…”

      Did the doormat have an identifying tattoo on his tush…maybe something like “If found, please return me to Apartment A/4 where I may continue to be treated like a doormat by my significant other?” Or perchance, just A/4 with lots of flourishes and hearts around it?

      I find that oddly…romantic in a very creepy way….

      Aha! Another reference to the boyfriend!!!

      Maybe it was the only gift she ever received from a guy for whom she had an unrequited crush. She stared meaningfully into his deep blue eyes, tyring to psychoanalyze each subtle shift in his body language. His hand brushed against her right breast as he handed her the doormat with puppies and kitties with abnormally large eyes woven into the cheap brown indoor/outdoor carpet material. He regretted the error immediately because she gave a longing sigh and closed her eyes. He walked away, embarrassed, because he had nothing more to give her for her birthday. Besides, he did not want to be standing around when elderly Mrs. Knickerbocher in A/8 discovered the doormat her grandchildren had given her with the adorable puppies and kitties on it was indeed missing.

    Thieves are not generally known as creatures of sentiment.

    Nobody stole me, you heartless bitch! I walked away on my own power.

    Why? What do you mean why??!!

    Maybe it was because of the way you walked all over me. Perhaps it had something to do with you complaining to your friends that I was always underfoot.

    I was a gift to you. Really???!!! Do you treat all your gifts like so much trash by wiping your feet on them? And to top it off, you claim I have sentimental value to you. Where was the sentimental value during the thunderstorm last week, huh? And what about that time the wind blew me a few doors down and you didn’t even come looking for me for, like, days?

    In short, I am not lying down for this kind of treatment anymore. I am going someplace where I am truly appreciated. I’ll never cross your threshold again. Oh wait. You never let me inside anyway. Add that to my list of “Why I left you”.

    The more I think about it, stealing someone’s doormat is a pretty hilarious act.

    What must be going on in the visitor’s head when he/she decides to take it?

    Did you visit before, notice the sentimental doormat and think to yourself, “I must have this” and return to pillage?

    Are you a Jehovah’s witness that decided a free doormat was more important than spewing forth your religious garbage?

    Did you walk up to the door and think to yourself, “That doormat looks fucking delicious”?

    Whatever it was, come on. Be a grown up!

    I am officially de-lurking and registering after months and months of covert in-the-office PAN-handling!

    I love this note because the writer has attached it to *their own door.* The thief already got your haute-couture welcome mat, unless you’ve got a planter full of doubloons waiting to be nicked or something do they really expect the person to come back and check again? The note IS from Texas, where I’m sure the gargantuan average home size means that the note would just be an illegible speck from street distance. Basically it’s like she’s posted a note so that she can get pissed off every day before coming home from work.

    The last time *my* doormat was “stolen,” I walked down the street and fished it out of the neighbors’ shrubs– where the wind had left it.

    I don’t get this thread at all … the note isn’t very passive-aggressive at all unless you count the underlining and the ‘be a grown up’ – both of which could be put down to genuine frustration at losing a valued item . As can the odd use of capitals – there’s no shift key on a biro! It’s a request, and looking at the picture it looks as though it’s an apartment or dorm door not a ‘street’ door so no doubt this is a factor. As for “if your doormat has sentimental value, maybe it should be hanging on your wall instead of sitting on the ground?” then if your engagement ring or wedding ring has sentimental value it should be in your safety deposit box and not on your finger! Who can judge another’s allocation of ‘sentimental value’? – maybe the doormat was the last thing bought for her by her poor dead mommy? and before anyone else say’s it – ‘boo-hoo’ … but seriously … how can this generate 83 comments in so short a time – I wish I knew the formula for that.

      Nope, I saw it and also have seen loads of entries on this site where the nature of whether the ‘note’ was or wasn’t ‘passive aggressive’ was discussed freely. I just don’t think this note was PA (including this site’s definition) , or even funny in any real sense and isn’t really worth including. Unless the point is ‘include any note and take the piss out of it because you’re not the injured party’ – the majority of entires I’ve seen are genuinely funny and the comments are of high quality and often hilarious in their own right. This isn’t and they aren’t and that’s my point.

      Well, one thing that makes it funny is that they even bothered to write that it has sentimental value on the note. Not only is it sorta lame no matter what the circumstances are for it having sentimental value, but anyone who steals something like that to begin with isn’t going to give a shit whether it had sentimental value so trying to guilt them into returning it won’t work.

      Also, it wasn’t on a dorm room door, it was on “the neighbor’s front door”. Dorm room doors don’t tend to have door knockers, you know. Just irritating peep holes.

      Two observations:

      If the current note offends your highly developed sense of humor, you might try waiting until the next note appears. Perhaps a visit to the laundry room is in order. ;)

      Leaving a hostile note taped up in public is by its very nature both passive (a note) and aggressive (hostile). Passive-aggressiveness manifests itself in many wonderful ways on this site. For instance, earnestly continuing to belabor a point. :)

      Wade, the point was (to me) that given the circumstances what else could she do – short of walking the streets with a loud-hailer – it’s not the classic of leaving a note rather than tackling directly – she doesn’t know who to tackle – this further to the point of it being an ‘internal’ rather than a street door as it’s intended for a small select audience who she knows will pass by and see it – perhaps I’m just becoming over-logical about this particular issue – I accept that – I wouldn’t say I’ve labored the point – just replied to comments made, but laboring a point is of course in the eye of the beholder – issue closed as far as I’m concerned – which means I won’t be laboring the point anymore (now how can I say that without seeming PA??? – waarrrggh!) :-)

    Someone took my sentimental doormat
    Gone and left my front door bare
    Someone took my sentimental doormat
    Now it’s empty- you should care!

    You got my mat; I got it from my Gramma
    Spent each dime she could afford
    I liked it while I wiped my Betsey Johnsons
    I wanna see it back on the floor

    Grow up! Now’s the time to be a grown-up
    I’ll be hoping it will show up
    Counting on a shame and guilt attack – to bring it back

    I never thought my mat would leave my entry
    How I cried when it was gone
    Once you took my sentimental doormat
    Some demented notions loom.

    “Gorgeous, I know! I’l put it in the trash tomorrow morning. But how can we break this to her? She’s always so damn proud of her inane gifts she gives us.”

    “Darling, I have an idea…”

    My guess: It was a gift, but the kind of gift you put out just in case whoever gave it to you happens to stop by. The sentimental part is made up in a weak attempt to guilt the thief and fend off the natural “it’s just a doormat, bitch” responses.

    You want to know what’s worse than giving someone a doormat?
    Giving someone a SEASONAL doormat!

    My sister gave me a F’n holiday’ish snowflake mat. Having snowflakes out in July’s 95 degree heat reflects poorly on the sanity of the homeowner. So now I gotta store this thing for no less than 6 months out of the year.

    It’s been pissing me off for a year and now…FINALLY now… I have a forum in which to vent my frustration!

      Grade Ape, get some spray paint, paint a firecracker over the snowflake, and then give it back to her–then the insanity goes back to her and therefore, remains in the family…somewhat…

    I live in a house on the corner of two relatively busy streets in my moderately sized town and stuff gets stolen all the time. For example, our mailbox was stolen (and subsequently returned and then stolen again.) We just got a PO Box.

    I think this is a clear case of abandonment. If the doormat was cared for as professed, why would it be left out in the cold?

    Someone RESCUED the doormat from a life of loneliness and abuse.

    She could be a horder. Empty Yoplait cups may have sentimental value in her world. Or maybe her mat was woven from the hairs of a dead pet or relative.

      I was also gonna tell Crudbuckit that Clair is spelled “Claire” (which, contrary to popular belief is not always a “Fat Girl’s Name”) – as for buttercup’s typo on “hoarder” I would think that Crud’s post contains more spelling errors and therefore is more amusing.

    ‘Kay, you got me on the “Clair” thing, same with the date. Really put myself on a platter for that one.

    Not sure what gigglebrax means but I dig it. Fill me in!

    Btw Ghostie don’t feel bad, you were on the All Star reserves bench. For every Jordan there’s gotta be a Pippen. If it makes you feel better it was a hasty list anyway and I went through a bit of post-posting angst about the team selection.

    Was my ironic speeling mistake too acute?

    I can understand that your upset about your doormat being stolen, but you have to remember there is a lot of people in the world that do these things. This is just like if you have Halloween pumpkins on your step, and people smash them. you cant do anything about it. Its just a doormat, so you need to grow up. If it was that important to you, then why did you put it on your porch?

    It was their doormat. Should they not put up a note? Go door to door? Conduct sweeps of the neighbourhood? Not every note is passive aggressive.
