Deny a man his web comics? How dare you.

December 3rd, 2009 · 218 comments

Heather in Indianapolis is the kind of gal who helps out a pal who’s down on his luck. So when her marginally employed friend needed a place to crash while he got back on his feet, she let Greg live in her house and help himself to her food and other belongings, like her laptop, “pretty much rent-free,” for three months.

One day, after several hours spent trying to get rid of all the spyware on her computer  — thanks to all the porn sites she found in the browser history — she turned on parental controls. (A lil’ passive-aggressive? Maybe.) Then, when she forgot to log off one day, Greg removed them.

When Heather figured this out (after being bombarded by spyware once again) she added the parental controls back. And Greg — instead of saying something like, “Hey, did you realize those settings block stuff like Google and Careerbuilder?” — left her this charming note.

“According to this note,” Heather says, “in addition to all the horrible things I’ve done such as give him a place to live, let him eat my food, give him breaks on rent for months at a time and put up with his laziness, carelessness and filth, I have also DENIED HIM A SOCIAL LIFE! OMG!”

Deny a man his web comics? How dare you.

UPDATE: The back of the note!

In other words, you suck, and i should probably move out anyway!

Shoshana, it looks like you have some competition.

    I don’t understand how someone who is working a full time job albeit minimum wage and barely paying rent can’t afford to buy their own computer. I’d kick him out.

    What kind of a social life is he being deprived of? I didn’t see anything about her locking him in the house so he couldn’t leave and have a conversation with a real human being. And he must have left the house at some point for him to have an interview if the internet settings are so stringent.

    Sure, she didn’t tell him ahead of time that she was changing the settings on her very own personal laptop. But did he tell her ahead of time that her hard drive was going to be wallowing in the very depths of the worst sleaze available over the internet, and catching who-knows-what from it? And I’ll bet that he didn’t wash his hands between a little personal moment of disturb and touching the keyboard to go to the next site/log off.

      Hey CG, Buen fin de semana!

      Maybe she wasn’t gay before Greg showed up + maybe she was originally sending signals (or Greg was completely making them up) that made Greg think there might be a chance for more than free rent, free food, etc.

      Sometime later, she gave him the BTWIG message, and he began the long, slow, smooth glide down the slippery and spyware-ridden oleic slope of ‘one-on-none socialization’.

      My guess: Greg bookmarked sites with objects in bondage and subjects named Esther, but I’ve got chemistry on the brain today.

      Hola CG y Buenas Noches…

      While I agree with you (#11.15) in *most* cases, I have known a couple of guys who got free room + board + house privileges and their only job requirements were: be very cute, be somewhat smart, and be sexually available ‘at the drop of a hat’ (w/ no marriage thoughts on either side).
      I have known more than a few women who had similar arrangements.
      Of course I am older and have had many years to encounter these rarities.

      CG, I think we should encourage Heather to scan and post the other side of Greg’s note. Writing the note at all puts Greg near the bottom of the ‘class struggle’, but not even using a clean, fresh hoja de papel, to quote Greg Himself, “is lame, and pretty low.” Dew-schnozzle of the Year

      Thanks for the info par krose. :)

      I’m still calling bullshit on “Heather”. I mean, the back insn’t graph paper and notice there’s now way to see what was written on the back. Graph paper is pretty thin, and cheap, you can see through it usually if there’s something on the front. “Heather”, if there was more, why didn’t you scan both sides? You’re a liar and more pathetic than Greg. Pretending to be someone on the internet.

      One more thing, if you’re the real heather, ask for the back to be posted with the rest of the note on top. This is the only way to settle if you are or aren’t heather. The webmaster knows Heather’s email and can post the back of the note.

      I don’t have much of an opinion on the bullshittiness of Heather, I just like my theories backed up with irrefutable facts. Just because some graph paper is thin and double-sided doesn’t mean all graph paper is thin and double-sided.

      I just don’t understand why she can’t have the webmaster post the back if she’s the real Heather. Why would you post one side of a PA note? I’ve seen two notes/both sides of a note posted here before. I’m sorry I’m not stupid enough to believe she is because of one picture she coulda copied from this site, one that shows what COULD be a different type of paper, and one that is so far I can’t read it. I’m not saying it’s 100% possible she’s not Heather. I’m just saying if you are, why didn’t you post it from jump? Letting that point go, if she is Heather, why doesn’t she just have the webmaster post the back? He knows Heather’s email and whatnot, and maybe even her ISP number. So, why won’t she post is?

      About the lesbian thing. Why are most organizations called Gay and Lesbian if NO lesbians call themselves that? I love how everyone is acting like they never heard the word lesbian. In fact, you probably hear Lesbians call themselves Lesbian more than they do gay.

      You fail at life. Why are you caught up in a web discussion that doesn’t invovle you? Really, it’s pretty rare for women to call themselves gay.

      I’ve noticed for sometime, there’s a bit of click on PA. When someone doesn’t post often or goes against said click, thet person is treated funny. I also love how everyone said nasty things about Heather, but the minute she posted, and half you didn’t even know if it was the real Heather, turned around and kissed her ass. I noticed often the people commenting here are more PA than the note writers. I don’t know what’s worse the people on here taking it too seriously or the people who make everything off topic. Before you say, or anyone else, I took it too seriously, there’s been more than one case where a note was posted and someone pretended to be said poster or note writer and they weren’t.

      ‘scuse me. jinx, I think I may be a part of the clique (click is a sound, you dumb-ass) of which you speak in your paranoid voice.
      I kissed no ass.
      I hate ANYONE who posts a note to PAN and then comments on said note, whether to defend or to add tinder to the fire generated by the note.
      Anyone who submits a note here should know the twists and turns the thread may take. They are fucktards and if they show up here after submitting should know what they can expect…they read the site, presumably.
      Not my place, nor within my ability, to decide who is real or bogus. Just to accept what I’m given until given enough to know better.

      I think my responses about/to Heather will back me up on that, so slow your roll, okay?

      Either way, it’s a low class thing to do in my view to post a PERSONAL NOTE on the internet…so I’ll fuck with them, just like I’d fuck with your head, just for the fuck of it.

      Have you not noticed that we are equal opportunity fuck you in the assers here?
      Grow the fuck up!!

      In short, no, we do not fail at life…you fail at PAN.

      Look, jinx, if you really want to know, I joined this public conversation that had nothing to do with me because your staggering lack of logic hurt my head. You offered as “proof” that Heather was fake by the fact that she, a homosexual woman, called herself “gay”, and no homosexual woman ever calls herself gay, she always uses the word lesbian. Then both pony girl and aaa related their personal experience that yeah, they knew women who used the word gay. Somehow you morphed this argument into saying that no gay women ever use the word lesbian. That is a logical fallacy. All the argument proves is that some homosexual women upon occasion use the word gay to describe themselves, and says nothing about how often they use the word lesbian.

      Then you offered as second proof that Heather was a fake that her scan of the back of the note wasn’t graph paper. Your proof for this was the assertion that all graph paper was double-sided and thin enough to see through. I offered my own personal experience with one-sided heavy-weight graph paper, because I thought it was simply ridiculous to assume every kind of graph paper in the world is the same.

      Now you offer CB’s commentary as “proof” of a clique. And again, your logic is false. All CB’s comment proves is that he can’t stand an idiot, and will gladly tell one off when he finds one.

      By the way, just because your reasoning is false doesn’t mean there isn’t a clique here. There is. What you need to do to join it is join the running commentary here, be fairly smart and above all, have a sense of humor. Why you should be astounded to find that the comments echo the passive-aggressive tone of the notes is beyond me. It’s what we find funny, that’s why we read this blog.

      I can type a hell of a lot more than that before my hands get tired.

When you make fun of someone, or their note, and then turn around and do the same thing. It’s not funny, it’s called being a hypocrite. However, H is only two letters away from F.

      Just to chime in, I too am a woman who goes out with women and all the lesbians I know use both ‘gay’ and ‘lesbian’ to describe themselves.

      The reason, jinx, that organisations are called ‘Gay and Lesbian’ is to include everyone – men who describe themselves as gay, women ditto, and women who prefer the term lesbian. Yes, lesbians ARE gay, so the term ‘gay’ could cover both men and women – but the tendency is to include both words to make it clear that the organisation covers all bases and doesn’t alienate women who dislike the term ‘gay’.

      Alright? Alright. Good.

      Honestly, I’m so baffled by people like you who assume their experience is the only one. Do you know how many billions of people there are in the world? Yet because YOU have never noticed a woman describing herself as gay you assume no woman ever does. And don’t even get me started on the graph paper.

      I would suggest that you are, in fact, Greg and that your ‘social life’ is limited to, ahem, photographic websites where the women are described as ‘lesbians’ . Perhaps you would be less likely to click on ‘gay female porn’ than ‘lesbian porn’.

      I work at an urban library… plenty of library whackers around. We frequently find gymnastics and swimming magazines left behind in the men’s restrooms.

      Once, while I was on the reference desk alone, a guy decided to totally strip off his clothes while trying to hide in the cover of a microfilm machine. We caught him before he did anything, but we did find a bottle of lotion that he left behind.

      Moral of the story, two things:

      -Wash your hands after touching anything at the library; likewise disinfect anything you bring home from the library before settling in to read it

      -If you have a girl who likes gymnastics magazines, get her a subscription. For the love of God, don’t let her near the ‘zines at the library

    Heather, I love you, but you need to grow some ovaries and learn how to communicate.

    You do not tell a person that you’re dissatisfied with their use of your laptop by adding parental controls.

    You do it by opening your mouth and saying so.

    I know it’s difficult.

    I know it’s awkward.

    But all the time and effort you spent dicking around on your computer would be much better invested in having a mature one-on-one conversation.

    If you can’t communicate with your roommate, how are you going to negotiate a deal on a house when you want to buy one? How are you going to negotiate a job offer with an employer?

    Communication + calm confrontation = valuable life skill.

      I actually did talk to him about it when I first added the controls. I didn’t feel the need to tell him ahead of time…because, well it’s MY laptop and I can do what I want with it, but I explained that if he wants to look at personal ads & stuff all day, he needs to get his own computer. I don’t feel I can just ask him nicely not to look at porn and personal ads all day, I doubt it would do any good. I actually told him he can have my old computer that’s in the basement, it just needs repaired. So far it’s still down there.

      It didn’t take much time to add the controls since he had his own profile…removing the spyware was the most time consuming. That actually only took about an hour, whoever posted this exaggerated a bit.

      I own my own home and have held a job for three years…most of which was full-time and they gave me the salary I asked for, and promoted me once. Negotiation is not a problem – getting walked on by people who take advantage of my generosity is. We negotiated rent and a time frame for paying it, and he didn’t hold up to his end of the bargain.

      Heather, you sound like a really nice person. TOO nice. This guy is walking all over you and frankly, you need to come to my house and learn some BITCH skills. Or better yet, let me come over and “talk” to this guy. He’ll be gone before you get home. Just don’t let anyone else move in and take advantage of you. Tell anyone who wants to move in next time, you have a horrible lice problem at your house or something.

    Greg didn’t MEAN to dip his ladle in the soup of nastiness, he just misunderstood what the social networking apps are about~he thought facebook had to do with face-SITTING, google with looking through curtains at neighbors’ boobies with night-vision GOGGLES, and that career builder would tell him how to make a smooth transition from hardcore porn fluffer to hardcore porn star.

    I left him my own passive-aggressive note explaining that I felt I was being used and that he wasn’t holding up to his end of the bargain. Afterwards we talked it out. He’s since gotten a lot better at cleaning up after himself, doing chores when he can’t make rent, etc.

      Now one of the Pharisees invited Jesus to have dinner with him, so he went to the Pharisee’s house and reclined at the table. When a woman who had lived a sinful life in that town learned that Jesus was eating at the Pharisee’s house, she brought an alabaster jar of perfume, and as she stood behind him at his feet weeping, she began to wet his feet with her tears. Then she wiped them with her hair, kissed them and poured perfume on them. When the Pharisee who had invited him saw this, he said to himself, “If this man were a prophet, he would know who is touching him and what kind of woman she is — that she is a sinner.” Jesus answered him, “Simon, I have something to tell you.” “Tell me, teacher,” he said. “Two men owed money to a certain moneylender. One owed him five hundred denarii, and the other fifty. Neither of them had the money to pay him back, so he canceled the debts of both. Now which of them will love him more?” Simon replied, “I suppose the one who had the bigger debt canceled.” “You have judged correctly,” Jesus said. Then he turned toward the woman and said to Simon, “Do you see this woman? I came into your house. You did not give me any water for my feet, but she wet my feet with her tears and wiped them with her hair. You did not give me a kiss, but this woman, from the time I entered, has not stopped kissing my feet. You did not put oil on my head, but she has poured perfume on my feet. Therefore, I tell you, her many sins have been forgiven — for she loved much. But he who has been forgiven little loves little.”

      So I guess he would wait until Greg steals his credit card to pay for memberships to the porn sites and also eats the leftover Outback bread that he was going to have for breakfast, then forgive him.

      I guess?

      glo’?
      You may have it nailed down tighter than old Drac’s coffin after the
      sales rep from Quicksilver Fastener Service got through with it, but you also may have opened us onto a page from Pandora’s Porn Parade.

      I get the feeling that the question of whether Jesus’ terrestrial politics would have been ‘sinner-left’ or ‘sinner right’ is insignificant compared to his His the outright and ‘in your face’ foot fetishism detailed here.
      It’s the kind of super-specialized niche that pays dividends to an atmosphere of ultra-privacy (or so I’ve heard), so I seriously doubt that Jesus would have offered to put Greg up for more than a night, and no way would Greg have gotten his grubby little mitts on J’s Omni-PowerBook.

      I’ll leave it to other commentators to speculate about the focus on perfume and tears (generated by humiliation? spanking or the like?…Oh, right, leave that to others). And I simply refuse to get into the whole “How many other bodily fluids could be used to wash feet?” minefield…I mean, even if I were to be showered in gold, I prefer not to allow my view of religion to become, as it were, jaundiced…

      There’s a lot of malware out there that doesn’t show up with your typical scan, and I wouldn’t be surprised if malware exists that would pick a certain site in your browsing history to trigger the redirect, but whatever.

      Wow, the chip on your shoulder works a lot better than the ones inside your well-protected computer. :roll:

      I didn’t assume anything about you, let alone whether or not you’re an idiot. A help-desk tech doesn’t think you’re an idiot either, but if you call and say your computer won’t start up, you’ll be asked if it’s plugged in. Always start with the obvious and move on from there, nothing personal about it.
      Notice the question mark in:”Perhaps you opened a link someone posted here and it infected your computer?”.
      I was simply asking if this was a possibility. I only prefaced that question because I wanted it clear that, if it was a dumb question, I don’t know much about computers, but know of at least that way one can become infected.
      No, I did not respond to be rude. I just had two ideas that I thought you might explore…my apologies, but you were asking for ideas(indirectly to be sure, but why air your woes if you didn’t want any help with them? Just to be rude?)…I didn’t post unsolicited advice/ideas to your personal page.
      You read something into my comment which I certainly did not intend.
      Maybe you stopped reading my comment halfway through it, and maybe you know more about computers than I…but mine are working fine, and yours is broken! :-D

      PS, blaming this site for your computer problems (F off with that sh@#. I don’t mind some ads but the scanner redirect is SH#$!) is what I would consider rude!

      No, my hands (some of us type with both) don’t hurt.
      No, this isn’t the right place to make your statement about your redirect problem.
      Yes, it is interesting that your “secure and up to date” computer is the only one affected by this so-called “bad ad”
      No, it’s not cool to blame your troubles on others, even after you know no one else is having a problem.
      Yes, I hope your add-on works out for you well.
      No, I wasn’t bothered by your lowly computer problems, again…mine have not been affected, and I offered my advice freely…no bother, no charge, no request to be called rude for doing so.
      Yes, I’m happy you looked into up-to-date Firefox add-ons, wish I’d thought of that!! Oh, my bad…I did think of checking if your add-ons are up to date…you’re welcome.
      Yes, you probably know more about computers than I…but I’ve already pointed that possibility out. But of course, if it is an add-on problem, and I’m already using the add-on you are just now installing, that’s debatable.

      You seem to have a problem noticing those things that are not at issue and letting them be non-issues, but I’m still not going to make any assumptions about your mental abilities.

      After a while, no assuming will be necessary “anyways”.

      I will say that if you post that you’re having computer problems accessing a website or blog, in the comments section of said website or blog, you should be smart enough to know that those who are not having access problems will be nice enough to reach out to you and try to help you gain access. If you are not, I apologize. If you are, then you were in fact asking for advice.
      Biting the hands that attempt to feed you speaks volumes about you.
      “F off with that sh@#.”

      Who the fuck conditioned you to not say “fuck” or “shit”, when you mean “fuck” or “shit”, anyway? This ain’t no fucking comic strip!

      Damn! There goes my trick hand again!! YEEOOOWWWCH!!!! :lol:

    Wow Canthz_B you really are a big douche aren’t you. A 50 year old male trying to be part of an internet clique is just sad.

      really. no one over 25 should be on the internet. Also there are no girls on the internet, but that doesn’t seem to apply here …

      Even sadder is an ingrate who doesn’t even verify their facts before posting on the internet…I’m not 50 years old.

      Besides, I love it when these things reach the point where you just don’t even try to rebut anymore and resort to plain old insult attempts.

      Still can’t gigglebrax? ‘puter still broken?
      Maybe you should be spending your time working on that rather than being “bothered” by me.

      Confirmation received…you are an idiot.
      No assumptions required. ;-)

      I’ve never been redirected. Wait, maybe once, but that was because Mishee was luring me away from everyone with naked pictures and the promise of smoked ham… I miss Mishee.

      Damned ageist.
      My AARP and Gray Panthers hit squads have been notified!!!

      I’ll be dancing the Charleston on someone’s grave by mid-week, if most of them don’t have doctor’s appointments.

      Yes, we’ve been pining. Maybe if we all clap our hands, she’ll come back? ;)

    I read that story and instantly knew that Heather was the kind girl I’d been looking for all my life and I will marry her pronto.
    Then I read the comments and that she is gay.
    sigh. Just my luck.
