Oh, please. Do I look like someone who uses drugstore shampoo?

Lindsey in Scottsdale, Arizona was less than pleased to find this post-it from her roommate when she stepped into the shower one morning. “There’s only three of us in the apartment, so it’s not hard to ask either of us,” she says. “And for the record, I’ve never used her stuff!”

DON'T BE CHEAP & USE YOUR OWN SHAMPOO. THANKS

    Uh, if you’re unwilling to share shampoo/conditioner from time to time, then aren’t you the cheap one?

    this happened to me when i was in the women’s detention facility, those bitches kept stealing my stuff. finally, i decided to replace my conditioner with four days worth of mayo packets from the canteen, then i stabbed the bitch that i caught smelling like spoiled eggs.

      I just wonder how she got it to stick. Did she dry the wall first?

      Because you know she thought up writing the note while in the shower and discovering her depleted shampoo bottle, so she stormed into her bedroom and grabbed her cute little rainbow post-it note cube (which is currently on green… see how much she uses it?) and penned a nice note for her roomies… then she marched with indignation back to the bathroom, whipped off the towel that was on her head, dried off the walls of the shower, and carefully placed the post it on the wall. I wonder if she has the Super Sticky ones… cause those ones would DEFINITELY stick.

    Is a post-it note really the best thing to use for a shower note? Seems like it would fall off and get wet pretty quickly, then clog up the drain.

    Permanent magic marker seems like a better solution, for maximum P-A.

    Garnier Fructis is one of the cheapest, nastiest shampoos. I think its barely one step up from two-in-one VO5. If that was the shampoo she was complaining about other people using, then she is a tightwad. That stuff is so horrible that it might as well be free.

      I think it’s not her shampoo at all. She knows how cheap it is and she doesn’t want her roommate to keep using the cheap stuff (don’t be cheap and use your shampoo) – she wants her roommate to get more expensive shampoo. She probably should have written “Don’t be Cheap! Get better shampoo (so I can use it!)”

      Honestly, I don’t know how honey got into the shampoo bottle but I hear rat’s nests are the rage on the fashion circuit right now.

    You know, nothing does wonders for the scalp as replacing most of the shampoo and conditioner with Nair. Tried it on an obnoxious roommate…she could not figure out why her hair was coming out in clumps when she brushed or combed it.

      Claire – I thought we covered the “read all the comments” thing with you already… I mean really, and only 3 posts after the original??

      See #17 as you put on your Unitard. Remember, we all put the Unitard on one spandex leg at a time.

    OK, the sex jokes are no longer funny. In fact, at this point, they’re slightly more annoying than the “fucking delicious” meme. Let’s go back to real humour, shall we?

      As said by someone who probably isn’t getting any.

      Believe me, you aren’t the only one… why do you think we make the sex jokes?

      Gawd!

      When sex jokes no longer become funny, I’m ending it. If we don’t have that, we don’t have our FREEDOM, man!

    Ah, the semicolon: the most passive-aggressive of punctuation marks!

    I would have placed a tiny post-it-note back there attached to one of her hairs saying, ‘Stop with the drugstore brands and buy some decent shampoo, you cheap hair-murdering bitch! Gratefully, Your Hair’

    This is rich! I can’t stop laughing. I love Fructis … organic stuff is a sham, Lindsey! And, you save money buying the cheap stuff. That much more $$ to buy cheesy clothes, act silly, and end up on http://www.thedirty.com. I bet you’re Scottsdale’s finest!
