The patron(izing) saint of roommates

September 1st, 2009 · 91 comments

Carmen in Washington, D.C. says she and her roommates suffered for months at the hands of this “crazy, obsessive-compulsive who made our lives miserable.” By the end of the fall semester, Carmen says, the house was a near-war zone, and the girl finally moved out.

“Around the time she was packing up her things, we decorated for the holidays and cleaned up a bit. She was livid, and accused us of waiting to clean up until then because we had been trying to drive her from the house with the mess.” (Hmm…how would you classify that sort of behavior?)

A week later, Carmen and her roommates received this card. Enclosed: one house key, and one hearty holiday dose of condescension.

I am so glad that ya'll finally saw things my way on housekeeping.

    For someone so obsessive-compulsive, she needs to either choose “y’all” or “you all”. You can’t have it both ways!

    Dear Roomate,

    Thanks for always being there when we needed our lives made just a little bit harder. We are so glad that you finally saw things our way on how much we wanted you gone. You know the best part of being a grown up? Not feeling the need to be a perpetual nag and condescending bitch. We sincerely hope that you, too, will find out what that feels like someday.

    With you gone, we can finally have peace this season.

    -Cheers!
    Your Ex-Housemates

    When I first read it, I thought it said “Houserats.” It seemed appropriate.

      I saw ‘houserats’ first, then I saw ‘housemats’, and I thought that first ‘for’ was ‘fer’, thanks to her issues with writing a proper looking r. Call me obsessive compulsive, but her rs annoy me. Most of them look like the letter i, except for that one that looks like an n. Cheens to you too, Loialei.

    The fact that this chick didn’t use a ruler to write on the card straight and violated the ‘start talking like a redneck and finish talking like redneck’ rule of consistency with the word y’all makes me think her psychoses is a little less obsessive-compulsive control freak and a little more raging psychotic hosebeast.

      How long in third grade?

      tiddles reminds me why we home-schooled our daughters…beginning in the early 90′s.

      Word to the wise, tiddles, if you drop the apostrophe in “won’t” you create a different word.
      If the roomies are wont to grow up, then they probably will!

      But if you add an apostrophe into 90s you make no sense. To be correct it should be ’90s. Unless you meant you home schooled the kids from the 90 is?

      But if incorrect date abbreviation is your wont…

      “90 is”??

      I’d have gone with the possessive interpretation rather than a contraction, but that’s just my wont. ;-)

      K:
      90′s and 80′s and so on is correct and is a stylistic choice, similar to why the apostrophe is missing from street names often, such as St Georges Terrace and so on.

      90s and 80s is also correct. The apostrophe is used for ease of reading, in the same way that it is missing from street names and so on because it’s easier on the eye and probably easier when the sign is being made.

      Again, it’s just stylistic, and consistency is the key.

      ♥, rose

      “For groups of years, the apostrophe at the end cannot be regarded as necessary, since there is no possibility of misreading. For this reason, most authorities prefer 1960s to 1960′s[39] (although the latter is noted by at least one source as acceptable in American usage),[40] and 90s or ’90s to 90′s or ’90′s.

      [40] In British usage, we do not use an apostrophe in pluralizing dates:

      This research was carried out in the 1970s.

      American usage, however, does put an apostrophe here:

      (A) This research was carried out in the 1970′s.”

      For the record, I hate that I looked this up, but there it is.
      Also (for the record), I’m an American, so that’s how I write. ;-)

    • #5.10   K

      Further research into the apostrophe in dates shows it is acceptable to use the 90′s form in American style but is not favoured in English style.
      As an Australian, we don’t use the 90′s form but I can see the sense.

      As stated on wikipedia (though obviously, given the source, this could be inaccurate):

      “For groups of years, the apostrophe at the end cannot be regarded as necessary, since there is no possibility of misreading. For this reason, most authorities prefer 1960s to 1960′s (although the latter is noted by at least one source as acceptable in American usage), and 90s or ’90s to 90′s or ’90′s.”

      Have always loved the way American style omits the letter u from so many words.

      Cheers, K.

      As an Australian, I use that 90′s style, but that’s personal and probably reflects my age.

      If I were writing for a magazine or something similar, I’d just have to use the in house style.

      In the 1800′s, following the fashion of the times, the Australian Labor Party omitted the ‘u’ – so a lot of it comes down to the whims of the time. Likewise, the spaceship (shuttle?) Endeavour, kept the ‘u’ because it was named after Captain Cook’s ship. That’s Wikipedia again, though, but interesting, hey?

      K, I think we’ve all agreed to disagree about the necessary/superfluous ‘u’ around here.

      Let’s not get that can of worms opened up again! LOL

      The wiki piece referenced this site (too lazy to build a link at this hour,late for my time zone) http://www.informatics.sussex.ac.uk/department/docs/punctuation/node21.html

      I think that “uk” in the link means United Kingdom.
      That may lend some strength to the veracity of the wikipedia account if such things are indeed meaningful for some.

      park rose,

      I work for Fairfax/RuralPress and our style is very much anti the 90′s form

      Canthz B,

      No argument of the use of the u, it is the things that make us different that make things more interesting (though it can make my job harder when people have American spelling rather than Aussie set on their computers).

      I am happy to conclude that wikipedia is generally legit on these types on things – especially given the number of punctuation pedants out there. That said, I did check out that link when I was checking out the differing apostrophe styles.

      Big thumbs up to you both,

      “Wanking. Not only does it relieve tension; it also improves one’s motor skills. I’ve tried to read some of the victim’s diaries, but I can’t read three-quarters of the words she wrote. Case dismissed.”

      In minutes, the courtroom was awash with tears. Some of joy. Some of anger.

      Mostly, the latter.

      Almost all, in fact.

    Localee (Loclei? Lorelee? For someone who’s supposed to be OCD about neatness, she has awfully crappy handwriting…) probably was a nutter. And she probably did make living the apartment unpleasant for Carmen and her other roommates. But I bet you $500 that Carmen and the other roommates were nasty crap pigs whose parents always cleaned up after them before and who always chewed with their mouth open and left their shit all over everywhere. I bet Localou wasn’t even that much of a clean freak. I’m guessing that she had a normal standard of clean (clean freak for the other roommates) but was so unstable that everyone freaked out. And then there was probably much yelling and furniture throwing to be had. Carmen and the other roommates probably put old rotten crap from under their beds onto Lorcalii’s bed and into all her shampoo and conditioner bottles and on her toothbrush and crap. And then they probably hid all the cleaning supplies. That’s what finally drove Loralli away.

    Totally not any creative license in that, er, analysis.

    In any case, everybody knows in cases like this, both parties are at fault in some capacity. YOU’RE NOT FOOLING ANYONE, CARMEN!

      Eek! You’d actually lose that bet. There was a lot of stuff in the house – not gross rotting crap, but just lots of stuff – because there were a lot of people living there, but it was definitely fairly clean.

      I live in my own place now (this note came our way about two years ago), and I’m fairly neurotic, and the old house used to only occasionally bother me. And when it did… I cleaned until it didn’t bother me. Problem solved.

      We did leave stuff around sometimes. Only, she never had a problem with it until she had a falling out with her not-boyfriend and promptly decided that the house (full of six college students) needed to be beautiful and ready for entertaining at all times. And that the appropriate response to a polite request to not stack our laptops in the corner was “You leave it out, it gets moved.”

      It actually surprises me that more submitters don’t respond; I mean, I read this blog fairly regularly, which is how I got the idea to submit the card in the first place. You’d think more people would engage in the discussion about their own find, but I guess not.

      And believe me, there was plenty of hilarious/bizarre/ridiculous things that happened. I could tell you stories for days… The Great Bowl Caper, her waiting up for us for hours because we left a pot to soak in the sink, her hoarding lamps in her room, her taking my dishes out of a kitchen cupboard and throwing them on my bed… it goes on and on.

      When we all moved out, we had a ceremony and burned the card in a tiny grill. It was incredibly cathartic.

    I thought part of being a friend was being tolerant of their shortcomings. Also if your a friend you address your fellow friends by their given names not “Housemates”. Thanks for ‘being there for me’ give me a break.

    I joined grown-up world.com years ago. It’s an offbeat 2nd Life knock-off, where you’re only allowed to do grown-up things (watch Face The Nation, do your taxes, get a prostate exam, etc…)

    I’d cancel my subscription, but I have this fantasy of running into Ben Stein at the hardware store.

      Am I the only one here, who, if I were a girl, would get as wet as a seal’s bladder at just the mere mention of Bob Schieffer’s name?

      Can you imagine him rollerblading in Central Park in hot pants? I could … IF I weren’t a hetero-male.

      Mamason, since there’s a apparently a bridge included, we could pool our resources and buy joint parcels, connected by a bridge.

      I’ll be coming into a fairly large inheritence in the the next two weeks, courtesy of my late uncle (who I never even knew I had).

      Sadly, he was a wealthy government official who was recently killed in an automobile accident in Lagos. As soon as the necessary, but expensive, legal niceties are tidied up, the funds will be deposited into my bank account.

      Talk about fortuitous timing! My luck just seems to go from really good to really, really, super-good!

      Of course we start the payments rather low so that all you have to do is pay one larger sum at the end of the trip.

    This makes me happy to not have a roommate, except my cat who cleans herself and poops outside. This note is channeling a lot of rage, and I am pretty sure it goes well beyond house cleaning and probably started before living in that house. The last girl I knew like this grew up being reminded by her parents all the time that she was adopted. I think she was trying to prove her value by majoring in three subjects at the same time. She also had food hangups, cleaning issues, gossip tendencies and brought all sorts of drama into the house. Yikes!

      Loralei probably cleans herself and poops outside too (very neatly of course always covering with at least 2 inches of soil). Still, she can’t seem to help being superior to all and making life miserable for everyone when she is unhappy. Hey, she really is a cat!

    I REALLY want to see the cover of the card. I’m so curious. Is it cheapie and normal or is it fabulously over the top and glittery?

      It was a glittery snowman, if I remember correctly, and think it said “Happy Holidays” or something along those lines.

      Ooh, wait. I see that PAN just edited the original post to include the cover – it was a sparkly snowman that said “PEACE.” Even worse. :/

      Having read the inside of the card, all I see when I look at the outside pic is a snowman coming to strangle me with a strand of lights…his swollen abdomen is clearly filled with excess spleen and gall, as they say.

      On the subject of the card itself, I like the “Peace to you this season”. Bland mush of a remark, people over there must really be bending over backwards to avoid saying “Christmas”.

    OMG , It has a thumbtack hole in the corner….Did she not even send it. Just tack it to the wall/door and run.

      It has a thumbtack hole because after we got it in the mail, we hung it up on the bulletin board in the kitchen for lolz.

    Wow. I’ve been silently following this site for awhile, and I’m pretty sure that this is the single most textbook passive-aggressive note ever posted. Well, it’s a card and not a note, but the point stands…
