More notes white (yuppie-ish) people leave

March 30th, 2009 · 247 comments

Quelle horreur!  “A good week after using my roommate’s microplane to grate parmesan, this note showed up on the fridge whiteboard,” writes Tori in (where else?) San Francisco. “Apparently microplanes are for ZESTING ONLY!”

Microplane zester is not a cheese grater.

(unless, of course, it’s a microplane zester/grater.)

    Why am I not surprised there are refrigerator poetry magnets? I’m surprised they didn’t use those to create the scolding message.

    And I’m whiter than most whites. I know these things.

      Those poetry magnets are displaying some interesting comments on their fridge:

      Drunk Mother?
      Weak Tongue?
      Butt ______? (can’t make out the 2nd word)

      It’s always so interesting to get a glimpse into other people’s houses and just how fucked up they are!

      I’m chagrined by the fact that Tori opted not to be less than discreet when it came to my herpes-sore-festooned penis. So much for confidentiality!

      P.S. The microplane zester DID make the sores look smaller, but, at the end of the day, I think it both spread and prolonged the outbreak. I’m sorry about forgetting to wash it afterwards. (I’ve been kinda spacey after testing positive on those stupid HIV tests.)

      I love you, Tori. I’ll see you again Saturday night. (I won’t forget the condoms this time.)

      If you lived on Big Nipple Mountain, your butt-chants would be quickly dispersed into the cool (technically: “nippy”), pine-scented air, leaving you feeling refreshed and invigorated.*

      Melissa,

      Nous sommes sur passiveagressivenotes.com, voyons. Si on trouvait vraiment des notes passives-agressives sur ce site, ça se saurait. On trouve des notes, ça c’est sûr, beaucoup de notes. Certaines sont agressives. La grande majorité d’entre elles n’a rien, mais alors vraiment rien de passif-agressif. Et je déteste qu’on utilise à tort un mot, surtout dans le domaine de la psychologie ou de la psychiatrie . Mais ça doit être parce que je suis un Français arrogant (et lâche, et puant, et malpoli, et communiste, et qui dans son incarnation féminine ne se rase pas les aisselles, mais ça n’a rien à voir).

    I’d never use a microplane for grating cheese. It’s far too messy. Us a Ped Egg instead. The Ped Egg’s revolutionary design features a compartment within the ergonomic handle that captures your shavings, allowing for even distribution of your favorite cheeses. Or dead skin if your wife IS A LAZY COW WHO NEVER RINSES OUT THE PED EGG AFTER SHE USES IT!

      Hang on. Claw and Mishee are being just a bit misleading, here.

      While it’s true that female peds lay eggs, biologists have long known that these fresh eggs are ALWAYS cannibalized by the male peds, then defecated as living larvae — in effect, a rebirth.

      It is only by virtue of the males propensity to gather together for group defecating and sports banter that allows the individual stools to pile together and thereby achieve the appropriately high larval density that is so fucking foul that it dissuades potential intraspecific predators from killing the colony.

      Ped-Eggologists agree that this is the single greatest evolutionary leap forward in the entire history of drug stores and “As Seen On TV” merchandising.

    Ordinarily, I think I would side with the note-writer. A tool should not be misused if you care about making it last. Even if the owner only noticed a week later, he’s within his right to complain.

    That said, even the version on Amazon not explicitly listed as a grater has this in the product description: “For zesting and grating of Citrus Zest, Hard Cheese, Nutmeg, Ginger and Garlic” and “Grates Parmesan cheese light and fluffy”.

    Team Both Parties are Douchebags. (I hear that’s pretty common for San Francisco, though.)

      I agree. Little drives me more nuts than the inappropiate and poor care of tools. But I, and many of the other foodie friends I know, happily use the microplaner for parmesan.

      Heh, come to think of it, when I went to French Laundry, they used microplaners for both truffles and hard cheese!

      What is with all of the San Francisco hate? Have you, any of you, most of you, some of you, ever been here? It is like any city: full of humans, some of whom are dicks.
      Which is not to the imply that the owner of the zester is a dick. If it was clear a week later that the zester was used to grate cheese, the zester was not washed. If you’re going to use your roommate’s shit, wash it afterward! In San Francisco and anywhere else, common courtesy is Just Totally Fantastic.

      At my house, zesters are not graters. Mixing the two would piss me off quite a bit–especially if I zested a lemon into my tea only to find that the tea tastes like week-old stinky cheese because someone didn’t wash off the evidence.

      Washing doesn’t account for the damage you’re doing to the tool itself. Tough cheese will make the zester dull faster, which means you have to replace what could be an expensive tool sooner (depending on the quality you buy, and if you care, it’s probably high-quality).

      penguins are the most PA because of their constant professional attire.

      “this has been pleasant and professional. thank you for refraining form using roommate’s zester in the future.”

    Look, I jumped in on the Microplane™ craze way early–at least 8 years ago. If you want to grate your parmesan with it, knock yourself out; it won’t hurt anything.

    But I have to say, it really isn’t the best tool for the job. It grates it too fine, resulting in insubstantial cheese shreds which melt too quickly and disappear into hot dishes and don’t deliver the salty bite of flavor you’re looking for in a Parmesan sprinkle. You might as well use the Kraft junk in the plastic bottle.

    I whole-heartedly endorse the Microplane™ for zesting, however. And it’s great for grating onions for dips and dressings.

      Hey, one of Tori’s two vegan roommates here.

      Yes, we asked her not to use hard-to-clean kitchen equipment (ie, cast iron pan, other graters, etc) with non-vegan food. At the time of this note, we had just had a couple big arguments which I will not get into here (because that’s not my style, sorry gawkers).

      However, I will say that Tori has frequently written passive aggressive notes on that very same white board. When she responded to the note pictured with her own note (something to the extent of “I know you like writing passive aggressive notes, but i think you meant to say ‘please don’t use the microplane zester on cheese’”), I simply re-wrote (verbatim) a note that she had left just weeks before:

      “I don’t know what you dropped down the [kitchen sink] drain, but y’all need to reach down and pull it out.”

      She erased it and never said anything about it again.

      I could have taken a photo of her original note and sent it here, but I didn’t (sorry gawkers). This just goes to show that sometimes the people who are willing to send a note to PAN are merely doing it as their own passive aggressive jab.

      And thanks to the people who recognized that a microplane isn’t just any ol’ piece of kitchen equipment. We like to cook, and we spent a pretty penny on the zester, so I think it’s fair that we (as vegans) didn’t want it being used on cheese!

      Alex,

      First, the good news: while it’s true I did use the zester in an attempt to abrasively remove the Herpes sores from my penis, you can rest easy when I tell you my dick is freakishly tiny. (Roughly the size of a Barbi doll’s little finger.)

      Now the bad news: when micro-grates proved too large to be of use on my weenie, I decided to give it a go on the severe acne pustules that have been erupting and drying on my face, neck and back for years. While the zester worked much better than a file, a grater or common household hack saw; it was a time consuming process.

      What I’m saying, in a round-about way, is that Tori never used the microplane zester. Ever.
      The reason is smells like parmesan cheese is because…well…that’s the way my face smells.
      Always has. Always will. I have a feeling that’s why my entourage is made up mostly of rhodents, vermin, and Tori.

      My folks used to bitterly joke that they should have named me Alfredo.

      They don’t make those kinds of joke anymore.

      Well, I, um, use my box-style cheese grater for parmesan, candy. It’s just something that came to me, out of the blue: that maybe I should use the cheese grater to grate the cheese.

      I also have a fancy-pants mandolin that would probably work, but I never use it. Damn you, drunken Pampered Chef parties!

      Taintmunching vegans FTW. (Of course taints aren’t vegan, which makes it that much better.)

      I just think the note writer was so stupid she didn’t even know that a microplane is for zesting AND parmesan. It’s not like schools teach a lot of home ec anymore, and for too many people even *basic* cooking is way out of reach.

      Heh, that’s one thing about the internet that has always annoyed me – being told I’m screaming when…hello? You can’t HEAR text. Having learned to type a hell of a long time ago on manual typewriters, a word in all caps simply meant emphasis on that word, no more.

      At the same time I do understand why the all caps stuff annoys people – I just wish they’d say it’s annoying instead of that it’s screaming.

      #34.16, Emphasis on a word can now be done quite easily by using italics and bolds. Much better than our old manual typewriter days. That’s why caps are used to show yelling/anger in this medium.
      That’s just the way it is.
      What are you going to do? Write in all caps, and show a higher emotional state by using smaller letters? That’s counterintuitive.

      Well, naturally, since it’s considered bad form and of course it can be annoying, I don’t write in all caps, though I will emphasize a single word or phrase that way when I’m rushing (as it’s quicker to hit a shift key than to type the symbols to make bold or italics.) Very old, very ingrained habits die very hard.

      And while I do try to stay within the bounds of net etiquette with this, it still is just one thing that irks *me* seeing complaints about “screaming.” Just a particular pet peeve of mine. Obviously I know I will still see it; it’s just one of those things.

    Sorry everyone, that was just a little sociology experiment.

    People who live on the internet, like most of you, make up rules that they follow and expect other to follow. Your little community continuosly makes new rules and invites/kicks those that are worthy/unworthy.

    It’s pretty amusing to screw with you guys. You redicule the P/A note writters for having these issues, then instantly write P/A notes when someone USES CAPS. BEAUTIFUL.

    Amy D has written a classic P/A note that I’m sure will make the site.

    Mishee, I just don’t think your at the level of some of the others. That’s not for a lack of trying though.

    Well done Beanster you went right for the stereotype. Also, insulting vocabulary when there is clearly no issue, I’m sure you think non-white people are inferior.

    Greek Goddess, you were doing so well. Ignoring trolls is probably the best way to make them go away. I guess you had to join in the fun.

      First, I am truly disappointed that you chose not to include me in the summary of your sociology exercise. Perhaps you threw out my data in compiling your results because you felt my falling asleep amounted to non-participation in your experiment. If so, I do believe that displays a critical flaw in your experiment design.

      Second, I would like to point out something you seem to not have grasped when embarking on your little breaching experiment: No shit amy_d wrote you a classic p/a note. It was a joke, dipshit. Making jokes on the topic of passive/aggressive behavior is what we are all here about and we frequently employ a p/a method in our comments, for emphasis.

      And third, I would like to point out the classic troll behavior you have exhibited by first posting an inflammatory post deliberately breaking known internet etiquette, then calling out other users by name, and finally declaring that you were just “conducting a social experiment”. It is so overdone and trite that I feel myself falling back to sleep again.

      Bitch please, another “haha it was just a sociology experiment” face-save? These get more tedious every day. I’m only glad real sociologists have better things to do than act like spoilt toddlers on the internet. Presumably. Although, actually, that might explain a few things…

      GK…I don’t despise the guy or anything, but you have read Michael Steele claiming that *everything* he’s said and done thus far was all “on purpose” as part of same type of experiment, right? It’s kind of like a cat tripping itself up and then walking away all pissy because it MEANT to do that. In other words…yeah, that one is done quite often LOL

      I wanted to look up who that Michael Steele guy was so we could converse on the subject (as it sounded amusing), but he appears to be an American politician. And, no offence to you personally, but everything about your country’s politics gives me a blinding headache, so I’m afraid I’ll have to pass. Here’s a lengthy and amusing anecdote about cats someone once told me to make up for it (screw you, post-length etiquette, if claw can get away with it so can I).

      — —

      Sakurajima, was, like most cats, entirely convinced of his own talent. I can safely say, without exaggeration or scientific backup, he was a badass. He believed his own hype. And most of the time, when he leapt from things because cats are not the sort of creatures to simply slide off or crawl off something without style and élan, he made it. All but once, did he make it.

      The set the scene for you, I was, at the time unmarried, and varied my time between watching TV, throwing empty bottles at a nice oil painting my dead grandmother crafted, and sleeping. The cat, Sakurajima, was twitching its tail, watching the sun through what of the window was visible through the duct tape. It decided to make a simple, no more than five foot leap, from the front sill, to the armrest of the couch, where I was laying, attempting to enjoy that episode of Sanford and Son where they visit The Gong Show. Out of the corner of my eye, I watched Sakurajima jump, and perhaps it was the air, a slippery spot, or simple miscalculation, but Sakurajima missed the arm of the couch.

      It was a train wreck.

      The entire back half of him twisted in mid-air and it started screeching, flailing its front paws like it was doing the wave, and bobbing its head. He landed split-legged on his butt and sort of spun sideways to stagger up. The whole thing took five seconds, which was actually pretty long. Naturally, Sakurajima once back on its legs, took to looking calmly forward as if it meant to look like it botched the f—k out of a Shining Wizard. There was no visible sign that the cat would even, if you could reason with it, believe you if you told it you had just seen it flap its arms and squawk in mid-air like a furry projectile.

      It never happened again, and several times after, Sakurajima would only leap from the front window to the armrest of the couch if I was watching, to prove that it could do it if it wanted to.

      If you’re curious the cat later died when a pair of small girls took turns trying to play catch with him and he landed on a fence post. They were nice about it though, and at least apologized. I’m lying. It was old age.

      LOL!!! (Short version – MS picked fights with some leading pundits, got pwned, apologized, then said, “I did that on purpose!” I don’t blame you for not wanting the details! I’m sorry I know them :D ) It just fit so well with the “sociological experiment” thing.

      **Awesome** story. I had a **truly** badass cat once, too, and he had a story like that – great cats are born for them, eh? Heh. Thanks!

      Wonders if misspelling “ridicule” when trying to show that he is really intelligent and was just pulling legs was intentional, or if Isuck is really just as dumb a stump as his earlier comments?

      Comes to the conclussion that sometimes a stump is just a stump.

      Bottom line here, Isuck, is that you’re one of those people who thinks (s)he knows it all and you walked into a buzz-saw of people who can not only match you, but surpass you…and do so with wit to boot.
      You’re not ready for prime time, so enjoy the rest of Spring Break, then go back to school and hit the books…hard!

    Hi. Nice to meet you. I’m Tanzanian.

    I actually didn’t imagine you as being non-white. I did imagine you as being upper-middle class and hating your parents though.

    Ah, racialization. Sociology is FUN!

    P.S. Why do you think we comment here? Surely it is not because we are, in fact, passive aggressive ourselves (read: I thought that was obvious).

      People who live on the internet, like most of you, make up rules that they follow and expect other to follow. Your little community continuosly makes new rules and invites/kicks those that are worthy/unworthy.

      Isn’t that what society does, as a whole (makes rules and “punishes” the violators)? You rightly refer to us as a community. A blog that welcomes comments from its viewers is like a microcosm of society.

      And what of the effect your baiting had on your study?

      Agreed, for the most part…except “for a purpose it isn’t for” just isn’t accurate, which makes the note writer sound really stupid. A microplane is a microplane – it’s for romano, parmesan, chocolate, citrus, nutmeg, cinnamon, etc. If the writer had said “I do not want my microplane used for anything but citrus” instead of claiming that zesting is its only purpose, it wouldn’t be so idiotic.

      A microplane by any other name would still remove the scabs on TOS’s nether regions.

    See the thing about the microplane zester is that you actually CAN’T use it on whatever you want if it’s not yours….If the tori went out and purchased her own, she could use it on whatever her little heart desires – her feet or cheese or her tongue.

      I’m not sure I agree, because we don’t know what their agreement is on kitchen utensils. If they have agreed to share utensils, and if in fact the note writer is just too stupid to know that microplanes are for a variety of things, that’s one thing. It seems to be suggested by the way the note is written that that is the case. She didn’t say, please don’t use my microplane for anything but citrus, she said “it’s not a cheese grater,” which isn’t the same thing.

      It could also just be that, lacking a cheese grater, the roommate used it inappropriately for, say, a soft cheese and then didn’t make the effort to actually get all the cheese out of it – in which case, the note writer is being reasonable.

      But barring any real knowledge of their arrangement or what happened…I don’t know :)

      Some Real Life people showed up back at #25 / #25.6 to offer background information. Turns out her room-mates are vegan and had previously warned her about stuff like this. So, yes, if Tori wants to grate cheese, she needs to invest in her own grater. Such oppression!

    • #39.4   Anniee451

      Haha! Double fail – comprehension and comment reading. Sorry! I sometimes get carried away with new sites. And while I find it obnoxious that the reason was that they were vegans and the taint of cheese was unconscionable (despite the modern invention of detergent), I totally agree that their property is their property. Tori needs to buy her own microplane.

      They could have cleaned it, sure, but the only problem is that cleaning fine-toothed graters “zesters” — at least the ones with the little spiky bits — is the second most exasperating experience in the world, topped only by trying to dry it afterwards. (Today’s Top Tip: don’t use your favourite tea-towel)

      Hehe – yeah, those tea towels will be grated/shredded/unraveled all to hell. If the cheese had been made from human milk, would it have been acceptable? Inquiring minds want to know :D

      Also, I could be misunderstanding microplanes (after only like ten posts saying otherwise) – I am thinking not of those little spiky things (which I don’t find of any use either for zest OR for romano) but of the very, very fine graters, like tiny little regular cheese graters. The spiky ones are like…just rubbish.

      Well, until this thread I would have assumed the word “microplane” referred to a form of air travel used by Lilliputians, so I don’t know if the spiky ones are maybe something completely different. :-)

    I can kind of relate to the note-writer… for a year after we started living together my lovely and darling housemate used a metal sieve to drain pasta because “the spaghetti goes out the holes” of a real strainer. Drove me insane. Pasta starch + very fine metal grid = complete nightmare to wash.

    It happened, like, three times a week, too (hey, university students eat a lot of spaghetti).

    I am so so guilty. I have on various occasions used the “zester” for a cheese grater… Infact, thats what i thought it was for. Like a cheesegrater for one. I thought some thoughtful person had invented a grater for someone who likes a little bit of cheese, but not a lot.

    Oh well.
