No, no you can’t

Writes our anonymous submitter from San Francisco: “I bought $50 worth of groceries at Trader Joe’s, my boyfriend made an awesome pizza out of [some of] them, and as we were watching a movie and eating some, my uber-bachelor roommate yelled through the door and asked if he could get a slice. The man has rice and soy protein on his shelf in the pantry, for almost two years has been replacing leftovers in the fridge with “IOUs,” and rarely makes anything worth sharing — not that we would impose. Sean said ‘yeah,’ I countered with ‘meh,’ and after 30 minutes of door-slamming, he left this note on the table — along with a sticker on our pizza that said ‘meh.’”

I share my shit with you all the time

    It appears that not only is the submitter’s roommate situation a bitch, but now it has gone and given birth to a litter of puppies.

    Congratulations!

    Maybe if Sean stopped sharing his excrement and starting sharing something nice he could eat that slice with impunity.

      The drawing was sloppy. The torsos should have connected better, and the top two crosshatches of the “E” in LAME could have blended neatly into Lamu’s arms.

      For some reason, a lot of people here seem to think Trader Joe’s sells nothing but natural, organic, and macrobiotic products. It’s not all tie-dyed health food sold by and for hippies.

      The employees do wear Hawaiian shirts, and the frequent bell ringing can get annoying, but it’s not the strictly-for-health-food-snobs store you seem to think it is.

      Very true. It’s actually pretty hard to find anything truly healthy at a trader joes. 90% of what they sell is total junk food. I go there once in a while because there are a few things worth buying (good prices on tofu and shelf stable lunches for stowing at work) but there’s very little I buy there because I just don’t eat that much processed junk food.

      Trader Joe’s describes itself as “your neighborhood” or “your unique grocery store”. Products sold include gourmet foods, organic foods, vegetarian food, unusual frozen foods, imported foods, domestic and imported wine and beer (where local law permits), “alternative” food items, and basics like bread, cereal, eggs, dairy, coffee and produce. Non-food items include personal hygiene products, household cleaners, vitamins, pet food, plants, and flowers.

      Trader Joe’s sells many items from any of several of its own private labels. Such labels are quirkily named in accordance to the ethnicity of the food in question, such as Trader Jose’s (Mexican food), Trader Ming’s (Asian food), Baker Josef’s (bagels), Trader Giotto’s (Italian food), Trader Joe-San (Japanese food), Arabian Joe’s (Middle Eastern food), JosephBrau (beer), Trader Johann’s (lip balm), Trader Jacque’s (imported French soaps), Joe’s Diner (certain frozen entrees), Joe’s Kids (children’s food), and Trader Darwin’s (vitamins). By selling almost all of its products under its own label, Trader Joe’s “skips the middle man” and buys directly from both local and international small-time vendors.

      Trader Joe’s promises that anything with a “Trader Joe’s” logo contains no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives, contains no MSG or trans fats, and is sourced from non-genetically modified ingredients

      ….yea i just had to look it up

      Still doesn’t sound like your friendly neighborhood market… and if it wasn’t so expensive and the like why did she choose to mention the cost of the food in the note… is it just there to make us feel extra sad for her?

      Oh, fer crying out loud…. :roll:

      Listen, MissMelonhead, Trader Joe’s is a friendly neighborhood market, and many of the grocery and nongrocery items that they carry are not expensive. (Perhaps the submitter thought that telling us how much she had spent would make the story more interesting.) But by all means, ignore those of us who have actually shopped there and go with your intuition.

      Sorry, MM. :? It is true that one person’s idea of reasonable prices can be higher than another’s. As for my assumption that you had not shopped there yourself, that was prompted by the final paragraph of your comment @4.8, where you seemed to be theorizing about what TJ’s is and is not.

      I will also confess to having grown irritable over the snide comments of others in this thread criticizing TJ’s and those who shop there. I should not have taken it all out on you.

      Dude, why the TJ hate? I can see how the hyperactive staff and and frequent bell-ringing might annoy people who prefer a more somber grocery shopping experience, but calling TJ’s goods “disgusting” is a little overdramatic.

      As for expense, pizza dough (enough for one large pizza or three to four small ones) is $1.49 at my local TJ’s, and another $7 or so buys a nice selection of toppings (with plenty of leftovers.) It’s not the cheapest meal out there, sure, but “costly” and “precious”? You’d spend more on a fast food meal for two.

    This note is gross. I am envisioning everyone huddled in a corner of their cavelike dwelling sharing and eating shit. Maybe dressed in rags like zombies or animal pelts like cavemen. All grunting (‘meh and yeah’) and exchanging excremental goodness. There is no door slamming in a cave though.

    I think these people may be a little challenged in certain social etiquette. Why the hell would the roommate cross out you in the note? Any significance to the howling wolf drawing? And who puts IOU’s in a fridge? Everyone knows if anyone asks, you plead innocent and say it had to be thrown out because it was bad. Maybe the door slamming roommate is upset because they had a little something going on at one point. Who knows? Mysteries unsolved.

    Even if the roommate is a mooch, I bet he would have shared his soy protein and rice pizza with them had he made one.

      “Why the hell would the roommate cross out you in the note?”

      Because “you” didn’t make the pizza– “your” boyfriend Sean did. Angry roommate is emphasizing the fact that “you” didn’t even make the pizza you’re griping about him wanting to eat.

    This reminds me of a guy I had as a roommate for a year. I would come home from work and cook and because it’s hard to cook for one I’d usually have enough for two and I didn’t mind sharing.

    The problem: After doing the cooking and more often than not the buying, I’d ask him to take care of the dishes. He’d agree, but then he’d leave them in the sink unwashed. The next day I’d ask him about it and he’d tell me that he just hadn’t gotten around to it yet.

    The bigger problem: There were only so many pots and pans in the kitchen, so I’d wind up washing the stuff just so I could use it to cook it again.

    The solution: This behavior continued (as I’d already fucked up and set a precedent for it) until he got a girlfriend that moved in. At that time, we met in the middle and dumped all further dish washing on her, regardless of who cooked and who bought the food.

      Sounds like my teenage son ‘just haven’t gotten around to it yet’. This could mean anywhere from tomorrow or a year from now. It really means they know you will do it when you get sick of it or they do such a crappy job you never ask them to do it again. Kind of like when you ask for a back rub from your significant other.

      Bradley, surely you didn’t pawn off the dishwashing duties on the girlfriend just because she had breasts? That’s so wrong. Like assuming all women can and should cook or that because they have the equipment they should all be moms.

      Exactly! (About your lazy teenage son)

      And no, I didn’t. I just said that so I could sound cool. She wound up doing the dishes for her turn and the other guy’s turns though. If I were to dump it off on her though, it wouldn’t be for boobs; it would be for ass.

      And all women shouldn’t cook. No. Some women shouldn’t even be allowed near kitchens. I’ve met some women that really believed they were good cooks and would serve food to friends and family that was horrid, and no one had the heart to break their hearts.

      Thank God my wife can cook!

      Oh, and because women have the equipment, they should all be moms, because guys just can’t do that yet.

      Your story reminds me of my last apartment. I lived with 2 dudes, and one random day they decided talk to me about how washing the dishes. I rarely ate at home, but I was also curious about why didn’t they ever wash the dishes if it bothered them. That’s when one of them declared that since he keeps all of his dirty dishes in his bedroom, he shouldn’t ever have to wash any dishes in the sink. Thankfully I left that apartment less than 2 months later.

      Sounds like both of them were pretty disgusting. My wife and I lived with ‘friends’ for a while. They would cook and then leave their pan or pot sitting wherever they last touched it for weeks at a time. Then they would use our pots and pans so they wouldn’t have to wash theirs, and would wait for someone to wash something before cooking again. One of them even asked a guest that flew in from another country to wash a pot so he could cook with it. I mean… WTF?

      Anyways, my wife and I got tired of this and wound up washing our dishes in the master bathroom (because we had the master bedroom of course) and we stored them in a cabinet in the room. That way, there was no question about who used them last, and we knew they would always be ready for our use without having to clean up after someone else first.

      From personal experience and from my wife’s experience, it doesn’t matter what type of customer service you’re in, or where you’re doing it; people are always assholes to you. They always talk to you as if they’re doing you a favor or something, and as if they’re the only person that you have to attend to for the day. You probably know what I mean.

      That was one of the first things i noticed too. When people complain about their food being taken, if it’s from Trader Joe’s they always name-drop the store.

      The best thing about Trader Joe’s is that you don’t see the sort of people who frequent Kroger and Wegmans shopping there. You know what I’m talking about, that 40 year-old woman wearing the Dale Jr. T-shirt who is barely watching her three beady-eyed brats with dirty faces and UFC-inspired mohawks. They act like inbred spider monkeys and her best parenting tactic is to scream “Ya’ll wait ’til I tell yer daddy how you wuz misbee-hay-vin at da store!”

      Yeah Trader Joes is much better. You don’t end up stuck in line behind some woman curlers trying to pass expired “Q-pons” either.

      Heck, I don’t care if it’s $30 worth from Walmart, it’s still annoying behavior. I’ve had too many housemates who were more than willing to eat the food hubby and I buy but not replace it (or pay for it), or cook, or do dishes… At times we’ve had to resort to putting our names on the food we buy and the meals we fix. In one case, heaven forbid we should eat any of the cereal he bought – he’s okie dokie with eating our groceries, but turn it around and he’d flip out. Though he was just a total asshat – he made an agreement with my mother-in-law to leave some stuff at the house and pay her for storing it. He hasn’t sent money in a couple of months, nor has he come to get his stuff, nor has he put in a change of address – she still gets his bills and overdraft notices. I keep saying to box his crap and put it at the curb, but that’s apparently out of the question (he’s her nephew, but I don’t see why that should make a difference).

      Erm… Sorry, apparently I had some pent-up anger. Anyhow… Trader Joe’s or Walmart – if you’re not ponying-up for the groceries you use, don’t get bent out of shape when you’re told “no”.

      Hey! Leave Kroger alone — where I live, it is the high end market. I have to shop there and Target to get away from the trash at the local “wals-mart.” We’re lucky if their Dale Jr. shirt doesn’t have a huge hole in the front where her lack of bra is showing as she screams at the oldest 3 and drags the toddling two around by the fingers.

      Clearly anyone who thinks trader joes is affordable doesn’t know how to read a price tag. Sure there are some things that are cheaper but they’re the things that are insanely overpriced to being with e.g. $4 for an Amy’s pizza instead of $7. I used to do some shopping there when I was working there but even with the employee discount it was almost always cheaper to buy stuff elsewhere.

      The Simpsons ran into the same problem that a lot of long-running series run into. They run out of good ideas for plots and turn to making fun of pop culture and current events. The same thing happened with King of the Hill, South Park, and Family Guy (although that one wasn’t so good in the first place). Hell, even children’s shows aren’t immune. I have no idea why Spongebob’s voice is so child-molestery now, but it scares the bejeebers out of me.

      “The absolute worst Simpsons episodes are still better than the best episodes of 90% of the rest of the crap on tv”

      Eh, I might have to disagree with you on that one. I’d rather watch a brainless reality show than yet another episode of whatever making fun of Apple/Microsoft, George Bush (I’m guessing we’re going to see ones making fun of Obama pretty soon), or whatever the internet fad du jour is. It’s not unreasonable to expect a show to at least maintain a similar level of quality throughout its run. That’s why I’m usually more fond of shorter-lived shows; they have a definite end and die a dignified death before they resort to lazy plots.

    Can I ask a serious question?

    Who the fuck says “meh”? I don’t even know what that means. I thought it was a sound that expressed disinterest, a verbal shrug if you will, but this submitter apparently has taken it to new levels and turned it into an expression of disagreement. Or so she would have us believe.

    Personally, I’ve never used “meh” as an expression. I’ve not keyed it in a text message and when I see it used I generally think much less of the person who employed it. “Meh.” Fuck you, you emo dweeb. Use your words! God knows you’ve taken enough college classes, without earning a meaningful degree I might add, so fucking tap into your vocabulary.

    The only person in this whole situation I respect is Sean, who has the good sense to hit it and quit it. He comes over, makes a pizza, watches a movie and taps that selfish ass but in the morning he wakes up in his own bed while “meh” and mooch battle over who owes what to whom.

    Team Sean and his doughy Trader Joe’s pizza.

      Claw, you hit the nail on the head.

      The fourth circle of hell is reserved for kitten stompers and moochers, but if my roommate ever said “meh” to me in response to any unassuming question, I would want to peg that bitch with a tin of anchovies.

      And besides that, everyone knows that pizza is, by nature, a communal meal. That note is kickassery, because bogarting PIZZA, of all things, is howlingly lame. LAME.

      Team Bachelor for me, as he is much less passive-aggressive than his selfish roomie. If you don’t want to share your Holy Grail Concoction of Pretentious (Probably Organic) Groceries, just say so outright.

    $50 of groceries at Trader Joe’s (and Whole Foods, and Wild Oats) is like $25 of groceries bought anywhere else. Someone needs to come out with, “I slaved over the the coupon clipping and it took me three hours at the store and then I convinced them to give me 10% off and I got $75 worth of groceries for only $26.57, and then my worthless roommate ate the discount canned beans that I was saving for a rainy day!”

      You obviously don’t know Trader Joe’s very well. Almost everything they sell is CHEAPER (and better quality, IMHO) than Whole Foods or Safeway or Top or QFC or whatever.

      Note that you can tell where I live based on what grocery stores I mention.

      But my point is that Trader Joes is NOT a clone of Whole Foods, it is something else entirely. I don’t know how they do it, but if they have what you need, TJ’s really is cheaper and better than anywhere else.

Taking down the smoke detector and using one of my Gladware things as an ashtray doesn’t make the smoke stench even less noticeable.

    This note is not about sharing the pizza at all. The submitter is male. The roommate is jealous and upset about losing his “dirty sanchez” partner. (Notice, from San Francisco, masculinization of hula girl, “lame” a reference to ED) He wanted a “slice” and was hurt by the indifferent response. The “meh” on the pizza box was a comment on the relative appeal of the new boyfriend.

      Just as a matter of curiosity, would you do a mermaid? I mean, you’ve got a good-looking lady for a top half, but you’ve got a fish for the bottom half. And since fish do the whole external fertilization things (except for sharks, but I haven’t seen very many sharky mermaids…), I don’t think there’s an appropriate input, y’know… Although, I’m sure, being as claw-tastic as you are, you’d probably find a way if you were motivated enough…

    If we wander back to the illustration, I think the hula girl might be in need of a lumberjack. Where’s the Axe-man when you ever really need him?

      He sleeps all night and he works all day.

      Now you know what the rest of us feel like when we’re sleepy.

      It’s kind of a strange feeling, isn’t it? You don’t feel as energetic. You feel like turning off the lights, laying down, and closing your eyes.

      Maybe that’s just me.

    Team Sean. I’m sorry, but if your roommate makes a pizza, and his girlfriend dictates that you can’t have a slice? That’s just kind of a jerk move.

    On top of that, as I’m sure she’ll discover if they move in together, I’m betting the boyfriend is not blameless. He’s probably the kind of jerk who never buys toilet paper or he owes six months of water bills.

    I’m just saying, there’s likely some sort of equilibrium, and you’re disrupting it. That makes you the asshole, not him.

      I’m sorry, but you’re not good with details. The scenario you described as a jerk move did not occur. Read the note again.

      Here, let me help you out: The pizza was not made by either of the roommates, but by the boyfriend of the anonymous female roommate who submitted the note written by the moocher male roommate. Got it now?

      And the note submitter and her boyfriend had no obligation to share their food with a moocher roommate who leaves IOU notes when he takes food that he didn’t pay for.

    What could possibly be MORE entitlement complex, freeloader, always has enough money for Natty Light and cigarettes than the angst of someone who has NOT been wronged in any way?

    I have never understood why roommates don’t pool their money together for groceries. I always did with my roomies. I can’t cook anything in small amounts. Pooling funds means more groceries and less waste. And, no hard feelings when one is hungry with no cash at the end of the month.

    People, share and eat together…it’s basic human nature to commune over food.

    the repressed rage in this note is visceral… seems like dude should channel his anger into art? In any case, the vocal “meh” response seems a little PA to me, also.
