A “discussion” on shoes

October 2nd, 2008 · 108 comments

My favorite part of this two-page glory? The flash of insight on page 2: “I realize that last sentence is phrased as a question, but really it is more of a statement.”

(flip over for a discussion on shoes)

Shoes...let's get some shoes.

    i’ve had similar problems with roommates — garbage and dishes and such. but i what i don’t understand is, how is she going to apply the “cleaning fees?” does she have some sort of roommate collection agency?

    i mean, if these people are already this inconsiderate (man, i wish i had a dishwasher, btw), does she think if she goes to them and says, “i cleaned the whole kitchen again, you owe me $5,” that they’ll pay?

    seems like an odd threat to me. if i were the ultimatum type, i’d go more with ‘i’ll throw all your shit out’ or something. that she could actually enact of her own volition.

      like smussyolay said, the best way to deal with messy roommates is to keep throwing their crap in the garbage if it’s in the common area and not supposed to be. Dishes, glasses, clothes, shoes, whatever. Eventually, they’ll either learn or run out of stuff to messy up the place.

      the reason I come here is that I think passive aggression is laughable. it’s almost like people are coming here for TIPS on how to do it.

      just confront people. it’s uncomfortable, sure, but more so for THEM and then the problem tends to go away. writing little notes or throwing people’s stuff out isn’t real effective – and tends to just magnify your stress.

      IMHO.

      No, I completely agree, Paul. Throwing out her belongings will only exasperate things and as many of my friends have suggested leaving a note, it will only solidify my role as her (nagging) mother.

      She just has issues with giving a damn about anyone but herself.

      As I understand it, the legal age for using the sink as a garbage can is 2, the legal age for erecting a mountain of shoes is 3, and the legal age for leaving your dishes in the other room is 4. Hence, your roommates are well within their legally bestowed rights.

      I don’t know. I guess I fail to see how putting up THIS kind of note is passive-aggressive. I used to clean up after my messy roommates all the time. I got sick of cleaning up their shit and wanted to talk to them individually, but our schedules made it so that we were rarely home at the same time. Therefore, a note was the second best option. So she’s a little pissy, so what? Have you ever spent 4 hours of your day off cleaning up your slob of a roommates shit?

    I dunno, I can understand how she got to that point, but I’ve had roommates who made biohazards in the sink and who resorted to petty theft because we wouldn’t let her loser boyfriend live there rent-free (and in defiance of the lease, in an area not friendly to students). A note’s not my first choice, but if you’ve got different schedules or if you’re living with total psychos who’ll eat your face? Okay, whatever. Well done, A++, would lol again!

      Dear Almost Earless,

      So, here is the deal:

      I was immensely enjoying my stay on Mt. Stilletto, with my friends Flip and Bootsy. The views were gorgeous–the Tower of Old Beer Cans over near Sink Valley, the brown waters of Old Teabag River, the echoing chasm that is Empty Magic Cleaning Thingy–when my vacation suddenly, cruelly, yes even violently, came to a CRASHING end. In your rage (mop and dishrag flying) when you carelessly tripped on Mt. Stilleto and came tumbling onto my very delicate frame, did you ever stop to consider the consequences for me?
      I was thankful to very narrowly escape injury, but only until I realized my fate. I now sit in a dark closet with no glorious view. I am coming to realize that I may never step out in glory on a Saturday night again, if my owner cannot find me out on Mt. Stilleto, glimmering in the reflection of the piles of dirty silverware in the sink. I may never be pulled out of exile again.

      I hope you plan on reimbursing my unused vacation time–I’ll send you my fee.

      DANKA,
      Sue Stiletto

      P.S.-And I must say, I enjoyed the company of Bootsy out in the open, but in this little closet, she’s really beginning to stink!

    this is a work of genius.

    when you live with many people, it’s hard to get everyone together at once, so sometimes a note (even a deliciously nasty one) is necessary.

    this is at once shaming and totally confrontational. there’s no indication of “Gee, I love you SOOOOO much, you raging messy bitch, thanks, please, extra smooches, bye now, have a good day.” Nope. To the point.

    Bravo.

      American – ‘No, seriously, I’m really pissed.’

      Because we all know that just because one country decides to structure their vernacular in a certain way, all countries must follow suit.

      And here I thought Americans were the only ones arrogant enough to decide that their way is the only way to be.

      EDIT: So your blog says you’re in LA, Donna Martin Graduates!. I see the British have already brainwashed you before the Americans had the opportunity. Shame…

    Not sure whose shoes are whose? Maybe it’s not that hard. The soccer cleats are the jock, the ratty doc martens belong to the stoner, the “vintage” shoes belong to the hipster, the hiking boots are the granola girl, and the stilettos are the gutter slut.

    Almost Earless,

    I love shenanagins so I will NOT act my age and I will keep throwing stuff about. Apparently, my mother DOES live here.

    DANKA,

    Perhaps she wrote DANKA as an acronym – it stands for “Don’t Ask, Nobody Knows Anyway.”

    (source: Google)

    Or maybe she’s too dumb to use proper German. Muchas garcias!

    It’s slang for us younguns. It wasn’t her name, just a closing statement. In case anybody was interested.

    I think people call something passive aggressive when it’s a confrontational message that they don’t want to hear. This letter writer is in the right.

    i’m with phalange on this one. it’s nice to see that the writer also didn’t stoop to the exhausted stereotype of claiming, “i’m not your mother”. how refreshing, but fess up, you are SO completely PISSED.

    i had a roommate like these sound like… i would just take a big broom, sweep all his crap to the top of the basement stairs, open the door and keep on truckin… mess all gone.

    I sense a movie script in the making here. I’d call it, let’s see, oh! “Sex In The City Movie II: Recession Style.” Having lost their jobs and their savings, Carrie, Samantha and what-the-heck-the-two-others’-names-are resort to moving in together. Due to dire financial circumstances, they are also forced to fire their maids. Hilarity ensues. You’ll laugh your ass off at splooge on the kitchen counter, Mt.Stiletto in the bathroom, and half-eaten Mr.Big hanging upside down in the closet!
    Coming soon to a theater near you.

      “half-eaten Mr. Big”? Granted I’ve only seen one or two episodes of Sex and the City…but how did I miss cannibalism?!?! That would have made the show much more interesting!

    I love that she referneces the “Shoes” video. Trying to lighten the mood while delivering a verbal smackdown is probably not very effective.

    Dear semi-pissed earless freak,

    I’m disappointed in myself. I was aiming to piss you off fully. Also, Mt. Stiletto was supposed to give you a lobotomy. But keep writing me PA notes so I know where I’m going wrong.

    kthx

    The greatest passive-aggressive moment of the note is, alas, also its downfall. If the writer must underline her aggression by calling attention to the fact that she did not intend her “Can we do everyone a favor…” quote as a question, can she not refer to it as an imperative (which it clearly is) and not a statement?

    OH I know the anger of cleaning up after people who put things like teabags in the sink so I do in part feel this girl’s pain. It seems as though she wrote this angry letter in stages- the “act your age” was a NICE touch at the end :)

    Is the random highlighter usage supposed to enlighten the pigs? Anyone with a short attention span is going to hone in on those phrases.

    Let’s see… If I only read those it says,” Keep it clean”; “Please clean it up”; “Is not”; “Everyone”;”Flip over for a discussion on shoes”. So basically, it could be interpreted as, “Don’t swear, clean up your language, everyone is included, I like to talk about shoes when I’m flipped over.” Yep, that should definitely inspire the intended behavior.

  • #40   really!

    I think what I find the most amusing is in the midst of this pious rant the author makes a point of saying “this applies to everyone, including the author.” And gives the specific example that she tripped over her *own* shoe… In other words, she’s just as guilty as anyone else, but is now on her high horse to tell everyone else to change. Ah, the clout of a hypocrital PA note.

    Why do people keep saying the letter-writer tripped over her own shoe? It quite clearly says “MT.” As in “a pile of stiletto shoes”.

    If this is how she writes when she’s only SEMI-pissed (off)…boy, oh, boy.

    “Flip over for a discussion on shoes”?

    I knew a girl once who had “Flip over for missionary” tattooed on her back. This must be a shoe-fetish instruction.
