A Post-it Note-Off

January 7th, 2009 · 237 comments

LJ, a student at Mississippi State University, was up late one night writing a paper when her roommate asked her to stop — the noise of her typing was keeping her up. “I had a paper to write and i didn’t think I was making enough noise to warrant moving my workstation outside, so, I stayed put,” LJ says. “After she threw a huffing, puffing, tantrum and left to sleep in the lobby, I finished my paper and went to bed.”

The next morning, she awoke to a bathroom filled with notes like this one:

Warning: Since you proved last night that you don't respect me, I've lost all respect for you.

LJ decided to respond by giving her roomie a little taste of her own medicine. (Whether the irony was intentional or not, I’m not quite sure.)

Stop writing fucking post-its. It's a cowardly way to communicate.

Ah, the joys of dormitory living!

      Looks like good things coming from my alma mater. Funny thing is, people shit in the shower there in the dorms…regularly, but we were all to lazy to leave notes, or learn how to write.

      Yea, it’s hard to complain about how leaving notes is “cowardly” after a direct confrontation. But, the whole “you don’t respect me, so I don’t respect you” thing is kind of a c*nt move, don’t you think?

    Roommate notes are major failures of communication!!! A girl I used to rent a room from would leave novels about chores on the counter before she left for work. Surprisingly, people can write epic notes about sweeping the kitchen.

      You must have been a Communications major, or enrolled in one of the programs where you are actually given a legitimate workload, rather than some of the various programs that you find yourself starting when it is asigned to you, and still rushing to meet a 3am deadline.

      This part especially bugged me: “i didn’t think i was making enough noise to warrant moving my workstation outside.” Who’s the better judge of what constitutes enough noise to keep someone from sleeping: the sleeper, or the person who’s keeping them up? I’d shit in that roommate’s bed at the first opportunity (meaning, the RM who was keeping me up).

      Agreed. While Liza should be polite enough to try to quiet down when it’s already late, roomie should also find a better way to deal with noise than pitching a fit and sleeping in another room. It’s a dorm guys, you need to try to be quiet and also learn to deal with some annoying noises sometimes. Earplugs and/or a fan for white noise is the only way I get any sleep around here, and I’m not even in a dorm anymore.

    It is college. Late night paper writing is more of a norm than an anomaly. If you are living in the dorms, you should expect that. As others have said, if that is the worst from your roommate, you are fortunate.

      Late-night paper writing is great! I do it all the time. However, I never, EVER do it where people are trying to sleep because I know how much it would annoy me.

      I’m completely with the roommate on this one. Sure the note was bitchy, but it does sound like the note of someone who didn’t get much sleep.

      Liza, in matters of sleep, it doesn’t matter what *you* think is enough noise to warrant giving your roommate a break. Just move your ass to a campus computer lab.

    My roommate did that to me; bitching about my typing papers. But it wasn’t especially late-night: I wasn’t “allowed” to type after ten PM, which is also when she decreed that I wasn’t allowed to have the light or TV on.

    But she was a controlling bitch who made it very clear that she resented everything about sharing a room with another person, so I didn’t really give a shit what she wanted.

      Most campus have rules regarding hours of “quiet time” and how you have the rights, such as to sleep, and impeding on those rights is against policy.

      Having lights and a TV on while a roommate is trying to sleep is extremely disrespectful. It seems that in reality that you turned out to be the bitch in that scenario.

    When one shares a room with another, there are certain allowances one needs to make. In my opinion, keyboard noises while trying to sleep is definitely one of them. I shared a room with two other guys in college and learned very quickly that ear plugs were an invaluable investment.

    What would the roommate do if Liza had sleep apnea and snored like a water buffalo? Tell Liza to move her bed permanently into the hallway?

    I’m team fuck-em-both in this scenario.

    1) Liza shouldn’t determine for her roommate what is an acceptable noise level. Bottom line is she is keeping her roommate up. Courtesy goes a long way.
    2) The roommate needs to understand that other people will make noise and buy some damn earplugs, especially if keyboard noise exceeds her personal tolerable noise level.
    3) I’m sure it was much more inconvenient for the roommate to sleep in the lounge (which was clearly quieter than the room and hence an acceptable work environment) than Liza to simply move her laptop. Again, have a little courtesy, Liza.
    4) PANs solve nothing ever accept for satisfy our daily quotient for PA hilarity.

    Conclusion:
    Liza is a bitch.
    Roommate is a self-righteous bitch.

    Living in dorms forces students to have to deal with a lot of bullshit that discourages them from acting like adults– such as having to share a bedroom, which is also your entire living space, with somebody else (often somebody you didn’t even pick). Nobody should have to sleep in a lobby if they want to avoid the sound of typing all night. I took a drafting course in college and would often put assignments off until the last minute, but I took my drafting table and other crap and went to a study room in the dorm, where I could play music and draft all night if I needed to and my crazy unselected bitch of a roommate had no room to complain.

    Team roommate. If there was a lobby to go to, Liza should’ve been the one to go to it.

      It’s as simple as this:

      What was a more common sight for you in college? Someone doing homework in the lobby or someone dragging out a pillow and blanket to sleep in the lobby?

      Let’s not add in a 3rd alternative and probably most common sight of someone pooping in the showers.

    Sorry Liza, but after careful consideration I have decided to nominate you as the leading asshole in this saga.

    The sound of chattering keys in the still of the night are among some of the most irritating noises you’ll encounter. Sure, it seems harmless but for some reason that infernal tapping tends to travel throughout a living space when all else is otherwise quiet.

    The problem is rhythm, you see. If the person doing the typing could maintain a steady tempo the sound wouldn’t interrupt REM sleep, in fact steady typing is a bit like white noise.

    Unfortunately people tend to type in spurts. It’s not the sound of the typing that causes a problem but rather the starting, stopping and inconsistencies in speed that rouse roommates from their sleep.

    Your roommate even showed you enough respect to confront you with the problem and gave you a chance to make things right. Instead you dismissed her complaint and selfishly went on about your business. That’s just rude. You forced her to be P/A by ignoring her. That alone is enough to qualify you as the asshole, but you went a step further and when you were confronted with a note you retaliated like a petulant child by posting your own little note, which proved to be a very lame stab at irony. Then you did the most passive-aggressive thing of all and submitted the entire story to PAN.

    I’m impressed with your work. I consider myself to be quite the asshole so I know one when I see one. I’ve not encountered many as accomplished as you. Liza, my dear, you are a royal asshole with cunt topping and bitch sprinkles.

    Ugh, college drama. I’ve had my fair share in the first semester alone.

    This is why you try to discuss things with your roommate before they come up. Cover your bases- “Hey, do you mind if I have the light on when you go to sleep?” “Well, not the overhead, but your desk lamp is fine”

    That kind of thing. But even IF you didn’t discuss it and your roommate asked you to stop, you should have. It’s half her room too, and I’m assuming you have a laptop so it’s not like you would have had to take a tower and monitor and relocate it, for God’s sake. Also, just because you think that “you’re not making enough noise to warrant moving your workstation outside” doesn’t mean you weren’t.

    This would have all played out very differently if liza were my roommate. It would’ve looked a little like this:
    liza, a student at mississippi state university, was up late one night writing a paper when her roommate asked her to stop — the noise of her typing was keeping her up. “i had a paper to write and i didn’t think i was making enough noise to warrant moving my workstation outside, so, i stayed put,” liza says. “after she threw a hard right to my face and then a left to the throat, i decided that perhaps my best course of action was to gather my things and go out to the lobby.”
    the next morning, she awoke to a bathroom filled with teeth and blood and a note telling liza to clean up the mess left by her thorough thrashing of the previous evening or she could expect more of the same.

    Wow, Liza is such a fucking bitch.

    As an RA in a dorm, I was taught how to deal with roommate conflicts. The main thing that governs who is “in the right” is the rights each roommate has living in the dorms. The #1 right someone has in their dorm room (and I imagine this is universal) is a right to sleep undisturbed. That is why there are things like quiet hours and whatnot. Sleep isn’t something you can just turn on and off whenever. It can be difficult for people, no matter what they do. I can’t just decide that typing isn’t fucking annoying anymore. We all know we act differently when half asleep then fully awake. We are more sensitive.

    Another important thing I stress with my residents is roommate communication. Liza’s roommate communicated directly the first time, and obviously Liza didn’t respect her enough to comply and decided to violate her roommate’s right.

    Lastly, college isn’t something where everything is permissible and you just have to put up with it because it’s college. Everyone has rights and their are rules, just like the real world. Liza needs to fucking grow up.

      There is no way that OrangeXenon was ever an RA. Anybody truly from the College world would already know that sleep is the one thing that students do turn on and off whenever.

      But that is beside the point. Who in their right mind asks a roommate to stop typing so loud? “Excuse, me, but would you mind turning off your aquarium filter at night? The incessant bubbling is keeping me up!” Keyboard clicks are by far the most innocuous sound that I’ve heard during sleepless college nights. Little Jamie in the dorm room next door, whimpering about his C- average in Calculus II; that was annoying. Heather gasping, “Please stop him, he’s hurting me!” from the courtyard; that troubled my slumber. Crazy Nathan laughing hysterically as he swung naked out the Conservatory’s loft windows; that kept me up.

      Keyboard clicks? Be real- a keyboard only keeps a college student awake if that student is using it for sexting (or WoW).

      It’s not “typing so loud” it’s typing at all! If you were listening to music at 1 in the morning, it’s not a matter of the volume of the music, but the music itself. If your roommate is trying to sleep and specifically asks to STOP typing because they can’t sleep, your a dick for not listening to them.

      This scenario has happened to me. My roommate (who is also my best friend) would stay up till 3 typing on AIM to the girl across the hall. Is that reasonable? Do I not have the right to tell him to shut the fuck up?

      I truly am an RA, but maybe the difference between my college and yours is that the people at my college are civil and know the definition of respect for one another.

    • #33.4   GhostWriter bang

      Civility and respect, in college or the real world, is not defined by one’s compliance with another’s nutty demands. If I’m caught up in a hot conversation with a girl (next-door or in Singapore) and you start whining about your beauty sleep, I’d say that you are not only the dick, but the cock-blocking dick as well.

      Even during so-called “quiet hours”, there will always be a slight, continual murmur of talking, TV-watching, and even the ear-splitting cacophony of key clicks. Are you suggesting that as a diligent and civil RA, your duty is to root out these disturbers of the peace and silence them? (Warning: this is a trick question. If you think it’s not your duty, then you’ve contradicted your argument. If you agree, then you are the not only a cock-blocking dick, but a storm-trooping, nit-picking, hard-lining, mean-spirited, cock-blocking dick, and that’s about as bad a dick as it gets.)

    Not much to add here except a response to “buy earplugs” and “buy headphones.”

    I once shared a room with a heavy typer, and no headphones (even special noise-cancelling ones) or earplugs (even the silicone-putty ones) completely drowned out the noise. With the former, to mask the typing at all the music had to be so loud it was more sleep-preventing than the typing.

      I agree. You’d have to buy the expensive noise canceling head phones and those are so bulky they’d be uncomfortable to sleep in. Not to mention that means not hearing things like fire alarms.

      Furthermore, even if ear plugs would help, it’s not reasonable to expect the roommate to run out to try to buy some late at night when most places have closed anyway.

    I’ve been away for a bit, lost in a blissful bit of reverie, contemplating just how hot the girl on girl make-up sex is going to be.

    I can easily imagine an enchanted dorm room, two svelte coeds, with flawless complexions and explainably decent g.p.a.s, are writhing naked in the candlelight on a fake Ikea futon.

    The scent of the Ballybunion seaweed and Dead Sea Mud they’d experimented with earlier in the “Body Sciences Lab” still lingered ever so faintly upon their tanned but adequately hydrated skin.

    Tentative at first, the two discovered how easily both tensions and inhibitions can be made irrelevant by Green Tea infused with generous portions of Bailey’s Irish Creme.

    Positively curative, that stuff.

    Emboldened, their tongues intertwined and tangoed together like Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire, had they been addicted to crystal meth.

    Hands. Limbs. Stomachs. Backs. All the things they’d been studying. But this was more educational than school.

    Their tender moans and muffled cries of pleasure building with intermittent fervor to a crescendo of unabashedly thunderous expressions of frenzied womanly exultation,

    They fall into a deep glazed-faced slumber, their bodies seemingly fused together for blissful eternity.

    In the morning, they awake to find their door has been covered with passive aggressive post-it notes from every other woman in the dorm, complaining of the tumultuous cacophony they’d made the night before.

    Thus, spring is eternal, and the cycle is reiterated and maybe even refined, before folding into itself, only to be reborn again endlessly, forever and ever in the days and nights of their lives in the undergraduate dorm rooms of MSU’s College of Spa Management.

It’s very douchey to ignore her initial request, then complain about the PAN left behind, and THEN send it to this site to further humiliate Sleepy Roommate. However, it looks like Liza’s plan may have backfired since the only person who may be humiliated in this scenario is Liza herself.

      Should this situation arise ever again in your wet, naked life, there is something you can do to prevent the tragic scenario of dog-stomping and spitting.

      A towel coated with itching powder would have done the job.

      Dog-Stomping = America’s new pastime.

      [Not that, you know, I advocate foot violence towards animals. It sounds like an activity that would be rife with different shenanigans]

      Dogs aren’t for stomping.

      If you are having a problem with a dog, there are two proper ways to settle it.

      Number One: summon the waiter: explain the situation, and then agree to heed whatever reasonable advice the waiter offers.

      Number Two: take it outside, and then settle the matter, physically, using only fists and teeth.

      (Verboten: stomping, weapons, cats or meat decoys, and, last but not least, relentlessly humping the loser’s leg after your victory.)

    Liza reminds me of my cunt ex-roommates who continued to disrupt my sleep by refusing to alter their schedule of sleeping all day and working and socializing all night every day of the week. But instead of writing PA note after direct confrontation failed, I spiked all their food and contact solutions with E. coli from the biology department until they got eye infections and couldn’t stop shitting and puking. They shit and puked so fucking hard during the day that they didn’t have any choice but to sleep at night.

      aaa,

      I’m hoping your ex-roommates recovered from the contamination — that they were able to gradually ease off of your mandatorily imposed regime of ensuring that all of their waking hours were spent (as you so evocatively conveyed to us) “shitting and puking … so fucking hard.”

      While I’m certain that everyone here shares my same feelings of satisfied gratification in knowing that the cunning plan you devised and successfully implemented allowed you to finally receive much deserved nights of undisturbed, restful sleep — I can’t be the only one here who wishes to ascertain that these eye-infected young, e-coli-infected ladies aren’t still “shitting and puking” all day, every day.

      The human body is far more fragile than those of us who are mercifully healthy care to contemplate. It can not stand prolonged bouts of expelling waste in such a violent fashion.

      What’s more, it is almost too heartbreaking for a human being to try to even summon the appropriate words in which to express how sincerely all of us truly hope the young ladies are now fully recovered, and have resumed both their studies and their slutty, nasty ways.

      Gosh…..sometimes I find myself getting choked up with emotion when I think about hot tramps who are temporarily decommissioned. (It just seems so …. unfair.)

      If you see them in the future, be sure an extend a warm whatever in their direction, from me, and some, if not most, of us at PAN.

      God speed, aaa!

      Keep us updated. Pix would be even better, if you can get them! (Upskirts AAA++++)

      (Not the pervy kind of upskirts. The wholesome kind.)

I mean, as long as you don’t inconvenience me (and yes, that does mean I should be your number one priority), you don’t have to worry about shitting out your intestines or having your flesh being eaten away by viruses. Biological agents are just too practical not to use. But maybe I’m just more pragmatic than the average jackoff. :c

I avoided the “middle-aged men” (i.e. teenage girls) because they only knew the magic of the vagina. I’ve already got one of those and would rather learn the magic of the dick. But now I’ve graduated to gay porn. No conversation or pictures of overweight balding dudes involved, there. ;D

      Personally, I think ABBA is the worst band in the history of music, but the Jonas Brothers are way the fuck down there.

Or, my favorite, getting a programming assignment that just will. Not. Work. For many hours worth of tweaking and retesting.

    Also, I can work without having to listen to the person in the next room fighting with her boyfriend all night as my friend in the dorms now has the pleasure of experiencing at least four or five times a week. Better yet, I can sleep without my self-righteous roommate deciding she’s being quiet enough for me.

Sorry, but if I had to work into the night I did it, I wasn’t going to sacrifice my work quality because my roomates had the luxury of going to bed at 11 at night and waking up at 10 in the morning.

    College isn’t summer camp kids, as much as my school seems it.

      It isn’t grammar camp either, apparently.

      Oh boy, grammar police on an internet forum: always a unique and necessary service. Second only to sarcasm of course.

      Ok, maybe that last sentence was poorly worded and a bit of a comma splice. Also, the preceding sentence would have been stronger with a colon rather then just a comma. Any other additions would be merely for style. Ah well, thanks for the B, professor.

      (Psst. I used an incorrect word in this response just for you, so point it out quickly before someone else does =D )

    College dormitories should be equipped with lead hiding boxes for when these skirmishes occur.
    - Lead’s quite dense. Can be used to avoid the sound of keyboard clacking. Or Grey’s Anatomy, an equally grating sound.
    - Real strong. Box will also serve as a fortress against flung cell phones and a cubby for hiding toilet paper.
    - No openings. So roommates and other humans don’t have to be seen or encountered, ever. No, you don’t need air. Just crawl inside and all will be right. Shh, all will be right.

    Team not Liza. Liza could type that paper any number of places (and should have gotten an earlier start on it anyway, btw). The roommate has only one place to sleep. Many people would have difficulty falling asleep with the light on and the irregular tippity-tapping of a keyboard. Any normal considerate person would have moved to the lobby or computer lab as soon as the roommate decided to go to bed — I wouldn’t have waited to be asked.

    Perhaps the roommate sucks too, but no question whatsoever that Liza is a nasty, inconsiderate , selfish, immature bitch. If she was my roommate, I’d throw something heavier than a cellphone at her.

    Roomie could invest in earplugs. And if there’s a lobby….that might be a good place to write a paper. Or the library. Or anywhere else other than where your roommate is sleeping.

    I think the roommate should buy some earplugs. And Liza should have gone out into the lobby to write her paper.

    What is she being warned about? Saying Warning clearly eludes to some terrible result. Is Liza going to have to sleep with one eye open for fear of being brained with a late 90′s model laptop? Is the estranged roommate going to set the room on fire after Liza has gone to sleep? Maybe teh estranged has watched CSI and will fillthe room with some sort of hazardous gas and then try to elude the authorities only to be fingered as the murderer by the stomach contents of a moth larvae found at the scene? Be careful Liza. The clickety click of keyboard keys has been known to drive many a solidly sound minded peopl into the abysmal of insanity.

    My room sucks, because it’s three people basically thrown into a one room apartment. I took such a huge level of classes that I was FREQUENTLY up all night working on homework. Difference, i guess, is I’m an art student, so I’d have 20 hour projects per class, per week, very often, and I guess that art desn’t make obnoxious sounds?

    Whatever the case, my roommate’s bed was right next to my desk, and I felt bad because I had music playing in my headphones (low, but I know you can still hear those at times), and I was up with a light, doing my work. Unlike with typing, with art you can’t just turn off the stupid light.

    … see, my roommates and I got along just fine. This is how it goes:
    me: Megan, I feel sooo bad because I keep having to stay up so much… please tell me if it’s annoying at all. I mean, I have to do my work, but I can try and work with you if you need it.
    Megan: Don’t worry about it.

    somehow, that delt with it. Difference is that with my old roommate, SHE would be up ALL night and have her headphones blasting and I would kindly ask her if she could maybe turn down her headphonse or… you know… move to the giant common room I had WITHIN our room. We had a huge apartment then.(My current building… NO common room. No extra space) and she wouldn’t even do that. I bought ear plugs and hated my life.

    I think this semester I’ve been kept up like… twice from my roomies, but they’re nice enough about it that I don’t care (and then if I need to do it, they’re cool back to me)

    Something tells me that these roommates have a shittacular relationship. Even with my annoying roommate, I at least did things like… tell her what I thought rather than complaining via note form.

    Sorry, Liza is an ass. I had a roommate who used to entertain while I was trying to sleep. Another one used to wake up at 5 a.m. to do her makeup and spend 45 minutes mixing up her contact solution for the day. WTF??

    Liz, are you using one of those noisy ancient black typewriters, or what? If so, your roommate should have hit you over the head with it, which would have done both of you and the world a favor. You’d be dead and wouldn’t have to write a paper, she’d get a good night’s sleep in jail, and two brands of twit would be removed from the gene pool! Then, maybe you are just a garden-variety “the world revolves around what I want and if anyone doesn’t like it they have a problem” type, and your roomie resorted to passive-aggressive because this was the millionth time she had tried to deal with you nicely and got no response?!

    The roommate asked her to stop typing (typing!) in their little concrete cell and she ignores her. I’d say that I’m on the roommate’s side. You dumbass! If you can’t respect other people get an apartment off campus. Until then, use the common areas for typing at night. Jerk!

    My roommate was pissed at me for the exact same reason, she was more to the point though, she put a post-it note on my pillow that simply said “WHORE!”
