Do these stilettos match my broomstick?

December 9th, 2009 · 262 comments

Sarah in London found this note — and the cheeky response — posted in the lobby of her former apartment building.

“Entry to the flats is by way of a concrete outside walkway,” she explains. “Unfortunately, if someone has noisy heels, the sound tends to reverberate throughout the building.”

When you come home in the early hours of the morning (2:45 am) can you please NOT make so much noise going down the main balcony with your stilettos and then slamming your street door. The problem with living in a block of flats is that you have neighbours that should be considered.  [response] Dear Complainer, We sincerely apologise for not being able to hover across the balcony in our very noisy stilettos. We will in future attempt to be home at 2:44 and if late fly across the main landing or teleport into our flat. Lovingly, Bramber residents

Of course, the above complainer isn’t the only person who has a problem with stilettos…a.k.a. “fucking shoes”?

STOP PLEASE NO Fucking Shoes or Heels In My House! Or Leave! I don't care who you are!! Have some respect for My House Damnit! What!!! Say Some thing!! Thank you!!! :)

    How glad I am to no longer live in an apartment….

    23 Bramber residents are probably stone drunk when they come home, and have no comprehension whatsoever of how loud they’re being. Writing a polite note was a nice effort (though it would’ve been good to slip it under their door rather than post it for everyone to see), but clearly they have no grasp of the concept of taking off one’s shoes and shutting the door quietly. I suggest setting the hounds on them.

      exactly. i love how they totally ignored the more legitimate-sounding request of not slamming doors.

      and when you’re drunk, you tend to drag your feet and that fact plus the fact they are wearing stilettos = frickin noisy.

      As a postman I used to travel in one particularly scruffy lift until one day it was repainted and a sign left saying, ‘Would residents kindly refrain from graffiti.’ The next morning someone had gouged,
      ” Fuck Off (I don’t live here) !”

      If you don’t like noise, move to the suburbs and get a house. If you live in an apartment building in a city, you can’t reasonably expect to have peace and quiet. If you are some strange paradox and are a city-dweller who loves silence, spend some money and sound proof your apartment.

      @CRR You may have heard (or not) that England is part of Great Britain, which is comprised of several islands.

      The fabled English countryside does exist and it’s owned by rich people and families who have been there for centuries. There’s not a lot of countryside real estate available and what is available is very, very expensive.

      I’m glad that in this economy you can afford to move house whenever the whim takes you!

      Yes. I mean there are no houses in England.
      At all.
      They went from caves to wood henges to sotnehenges, cottages and castles, skipped over apartment buildings to flat buildings and are now trending toward bridges to live under.
      This is why they call you “radio.”

      Buildings have doors. To streets. They also have apartments in them. With doors. To the apartments. In between, there are walkways and stairwells.

      PG,
      Come on, you know a street door is just a door you buy from a “friend” who bought too many and needs to sell a few of them off…

      Like, since it didn’t come from Home Despot with a receipt, there’s no warranty and it has a questionable provenance, not unlike someone named after the morel (sic) equivalent of Diet Squirt.

      I have friends that live in a building like that, they’ve never said ‘street door’

      I chose to mock that phrase because it stuck me as funny.
      You didn’t think so, and chose to get snarky about it.

      To those in the know, Hornby is a street. Therefore a Hornby door is a type of street door.

      I haven’t read this entire thread, so forgive me if it has been said already, but I’ve always heard and used the term “outer door” for the entrance/exit from a building or apartment (because they are, in fact, “exit doors” and lead one “outside” [thank you Coconut Grove fire, 1942]), and “inner doors” for those within them.

      Oddly enough, that would make an apartment door inside of an apartment building an inner door of the building, but an outer door of the apartment itself. :mrgreen:

      Not that there’s anything wrong with “street door”, but if it opens onto a balcony (probably more of an elevated walkway), it really doesn’t open onto the street/sidewalk in this case (picture second floor of a motel-styled building)…just saying.

      I’d still write someone a PA note for slamming the damned thing at 2:45am, but hey, that’s my bliss! :-)

      They are pretty noisy. I lived in Oman for a while. There were quite a few goats and kids (the baaahhh kind) wandering around. Every now and then they wandered up the stairs of the apartment block I lived in, coming in through the street door. I think I should have written a note.

      During sacrificial Eid, of course, they probably were wandering up the stairs because they were escape goats.

      My neighbors gardened by moonlight, and also named their plants. They would be outside, around midnight, digging a hole in the garden. The next day, there would be a small tree there. “This is Murray,” they would say.

      Moonlight gardening and night-time sausage making (go figure, huh?)
      are old customs among many of Italian ancestry (and some others).
      Some kinda Roman Feng-shui stranezze.

      Did they ever use the name “Hoffa”?

      Some of those moonlight-gardened varieties can be very valuable.
      Pretty sure there’s a Federal program that would pay a sizable reward for information about Hoffa. You might have to move or travel though.

      GG,
      No, I remember the last food status as you not pressing me to eat your B.Sprouts and not feeling (in advance) any disrespect from me for passing.

      It’s just that in the interim I have had the chance to remember + reflect
      on how good some B.Sprouts can be, especially a side dish made by my knock-out-cook of a sister-in-law, which had citrus juice splashed into, onto, and amidst B.Sprouts tossed with wide shreds of Reggiano.

      So, the hesitation is based more on the recent addition of wolfbane to your onboard herb garden than on any expectation that you will offer me something ghastly. Although if your dedication to vegetables met with an impoverished larder and you were to glop up the Sprouts with Cheese Whiz and pimentos…that’s where the college-years story about getting sick from the propellant when we were just trying to get high on the nitrous oxide they used to use to make ReddiWhip come out briskly…that’s where that story would come in handy, but I’m giving away potential trade secrets here and should stop.

      I have heard from close friends of people I met once at a party given by someone I didn’t know…that there are film (video) clips on the Internet that document how this shoe disturbance could be done.

      I got the impression that these are not actually produced by footwear manufacturers, and although they clearly document the process, they are not what we usually refer to when we use the term ‘documentaries’.

      So, you probably won’t find things on the order of ‘Care and Cleaning of Suede’, ‘How to Properly Lace Up You New REI Mountaineering Boots’, or ‘First Time On Stilts, Young Lady?’

      Not much else I can say, other than to remind you that in some circles drinking champagne out of a woman’s shoe was (and still may be) quite the hep thing to do. If we’ve seen those scenes in 1930′s movies, just imagine what shennigans shoes might be up to in the 21st century.

      I’d like to say I pulled diaper plan and catheter play out of my ass (ba-dum…) but I’m pretty sure I’ve heard of both at one time or another. Probably because I spent too much time reading Savage Love in college.

      PG,
      Any detailed secrets related to The Lazy Susan of Ice Cream and Coffee Flavors are safe with me, but I might drop a hypothesis on Shance, but only to indulge my fetish for annotation and Scientific Method play (which isn’t, here at least, a code phrase for S&M, although it has a cute ring to it).
      And don’t mention the pony ice cream store called Baskin & Dobbin, not if you want to canter anytime soon…apple & sugar cubes!

      Oh, I’m not sure about the catheter thing (had one when I had spinal surgery…not gonna develop a fetish for it…ever…at all), but I think the diaper biz is what that GOP Senator got embarrassed about when his name showed up in the D.C. Madam’s client list. Not the wide stance guy…the guy whose wife stood beside him at the mea culpa press conference in a fetching tiger-print-ish dress. It was on the news for a while. Vitter’s the name I think. You could JFGI for more…or not.

      Sir Shance-a-lot,
      How’s life in Camealot (sp?).
      Interesting site there.
      Peaches + vanilla isn’t something you’re likely to find via Google.
      If you Google ‘peaches’ you might get some hits about Zappa’s (and Phish’s) “Peaches en Regalia” on page 4 or so. You might find some hits about Tom Robbins using a peach-related term (you’ll have to work for it) in “Still Life with Woodpecker”.

      I’m tempted to ‘pull a rose’ and suggest that some hybridization of the two sets of Google hits may result in finding Robbins’ term faster, but I won’t.
      This is all a hypothesis because I am truly not sure what PG means by peaches + vanilla. But my guess is that what I’ve said so far is on the right island if not exactly the same road.

      M’deah, I didn’t say they are a sensible shoe.
      Merely that there have been places for them on the rock stage
      (clearly not a niche known for high-utility apparel).

      Researching the song took me to YT, which has a clip of them…

      GG,
      I’m guessing your ensemble is thermodynamically appropriate for your latitude. I don’t miss them, but at least you have seasons, or close to them.

      I only scanned the titles + pix of Related Videos.
      From a Different Strokes political perspective, well, why not?
      From a reverse-engineering perspective, well, why that?
      The universe is a big place, but the model of it running in human brains and endocrine systems can sure seem small sometimes…
      (I can humbly speak from personal experience if compensated…)

      JJ,
      If we manage to get sooo loaded during a let’s-stick-it-to-Monsanto planning session that we completely destroy all the glasses, can we safely use your shoes as alternative stemware ?

      If there is an environmentally-optimal brand of bubbly, please feel encouraged to recommend it soonest. Might as well stock up now, no?

      P.S. I thought vegans could eat nuts, grains, etc. Is it like some super-strict sect of vegans that includes footwear on the menu?

      Yes, ty, my ensemble is thermodyanamically chosen. Although our seasons are more towards the rainy and warm, rainy and windy, rainy and cold and rainy and less cold. The red dress, although rather brief, is trimmed with seasonally appropriate, vegan-approved, cruelty-free, organic, hypo-allergenic white fur cuffs and hem.

      Sounds like the red dress is more of a ‘let’s stay home and enjoy the fire, now that I’ve wriggled down and out of the chimney’ sort of seasonally oriented number.

    Who is the slacker that added numbers 9 and 37 to the bottom of the note? What kind of lazy PA person are they, thinking that they can just coast on someone else’s prewritten PAN instead of composting composing their own note? At least Complainer actually got off their butt and wrote something!

    • #17.1   infant tyrone bang

      GG,

      I suppose if I had to bet…I’d bet that #’s 9 + 37 were added as additional targets for the opprobrium of light sleepers and day shift workers
      (the ‘normal’, salt-of-the-earth, God-fearing Londoners there at
      Bramber-on-the-Testy).

      But, then again, they could just represent another two apartments signaling solidarity with the original note-writer.

      My monitor doesn’t help me decide if the numbers were written separately or at the same time by the same person, so I’m stuck with:
      Team New Targets or Team We’re with Ya Mate!

    I don’t see what’s PA about these “PANs”. The first one is legit. Don’t be a twat and make a ton of noise and slam your door when you come home late. The second one is just agressive, but if people don’t like it why the fuck are going to his house. In fact, the response note to the first note is really the passive aggressive one. I like how they put up a picture from the Devil Wears Prada. Maybe they’re trying to say they’re the devil.

      Maybe somebody could record these and then play them backwards.
      See what hidden treasures await us…

      About right on the notes’ PA-ness…sometimes it’s even one out of four or less. And often it is a follow-up note that is the snarkle in the haystack.

      Well, jinx, when you write your own blog, I guess you will get to decide what fits your theme and what doesn’t.

      What makes all these notes fit the theme is the utter futility of them. We all know the feeling of being so irritated by something that the urge to write a scathing note is there, but most of us have learned throughout the years that it just won’t work. The people who haven’t figured that out, just like the people who think they can complain in the comments of a blog that an entry isn’t passive-aggressive enough, are the people we ridicule. Simple as that.

      In the meantime, there’s a little red X in the upper right-hand corner of your browser window you can click on if you’re so upset about the whole issue.

      Hee hee. I love it when people accuse me of not having a real life and then spend their precious on-line time arguing with me. Yeah, I’m online a lot. I have a job that allows me to be on the internet in quiet times and I also enjoy being online during my leisure times. I don’t go around posting multiple times on multiple threads on a blog and then say how I’m too busy to be online and can’t be bothered to get any idea of the site’s culture. “Not a hypocrite.” You’re funny.

      As for wishing another human being dead, well, that’s not something I do. In the far distant past, I, too, tangled with CB and was very mad at him, but my personal code of ethics doesn’t permit me to wish a fellow person out of existence. Especially one I know only by a few exchanges online.

    CB, I got this one, but join in if you’re innarested…be done in a jif…

    If such a tragedy were ever to occur, I only hope that the bus in question is the short yellow one that takes you to school and back.

    Oh, maybe a couple more hopes, audacious ones even:

    1) The collision is glancing and PG is able to trot away to get help for

    2) You, who aren’t wearing your seat belt because you were yakking inanely at the driver while standing in front of the white line…which,
    when the driver slams on her brakes, causes you to go right through
    the windshield (or windscreen if you’re somewhere ‘over there’)
    face first, resulting in a mega-pocked phiz that will eventually
    heal up to more closely resemble your soul.

    P.S. I ‘spect the only bus PG is likely to get smacked by is the kind with a double ‘s’.

    When I was a child, my grandmother was fanatical about not wearing shoes in the house. We had to take them off outside and sometimes, leave them outside (which sucked, because we lived in an apartment complex). This was traumatic for me, as I had to deal with it on a daily basis. And if you were afraid of losing your shoes outside and wanted to take them in, well … you had to clean them off and stuff.
    So as an adult, as long as it’s not super wet and muddy out I don’t care if you wear shoes in the house. There is a nice rug in the front and back (actually, they are huge, cheap rugs from Big Lots) for wiping feet. I always considered people that want you to take your shoes off ALL the time to be neurotic, petty, and to have something wrong with them.
    Team wear your shoes indoors if the weather is dry.

    • #37.1   pony girl bang

      Sorry about your traumatic childhood experiences. (I’m being serious; it sucks to have your shoes stolen. Our trauma as children was that when we would go to put our shoes back on, we would have to check to make sure no bugs had crawled inside. I once got bitten by a cockroach! Yes, they can bite. Hard. It drew blood. I then proceeded to scratch my toe on the asphalt until it bled more. Cockroach on my toe!!!!!! AUUUUUUUUUUUUUGGGHHHH!!)
      ok, where was I?
      Taking off one’s shoes to enter a home is a cultural thing for some people (like in Hawai’i, where I’m from.)
      Where I grew up people did not wear shoes in the house. It would be like defecating on the homeowner’s bed.
      I feel uncomfortable wearing my shoes in furniture stores, you know where they set up the little rooms with carpet and stuff? I walk around the carpet, it just feels so wrong to walk on it. ;)

      ps – kinda wrong for your grandma to not have a little shoe shelf right inside her front door. That’s what most people do who don’t wear shoes inside. They have a place to keep them right outside the door, or right inside the door if weather or critters or theft is an issue.

    • #37.2   park rose bang

      I agree with PG, but it does depend on the country and area. In many Asian countries (including Oman) leaving your shoes off is pretty common. Stricter in Japan than in Oman, though. Maybe it should be the other way around. Imagine the trauma you would experience if a goat ran off with your sneaker, or worse…your Manolo’s (no shoe shelves there, either, really, that I saw. Shoes just left outside of the apartment door, but definite shoe shelves and cupboards in Japan). ;)
      It definitely keeps your house cleaner, but it is a real pain if you’re wearing boots and you left your purse on the kitchen table.

      I never wear shoes indoors. I used to live in Montana when I was a very wee child, and even there, even in the winter, I never wore shoes indoors. I have no idea how that one works out.

      I’ve been bitten by a cockroach. But it was one of my baby cockroaches (not that I think any of my adult cockroaches would bite that hard, though) and it hardly felt like anything. I think it was hungry. :O

      I have no problem obeying someone’s rules as a cultural thing. I totally get that, and have respect for anyone cultural or not that wants my shoes off before entering. I think in this case I am wondering:

      a) if it is cultural for this person, why not just say something? And also they may be in an area of the world where it’s NOT the norm, so have some patience, eh?

      b) If it’s not and they are super neat/control freaks, then way to make people think that you’re neurotic AND an asshole. I guess that is the side effect of PA notes though.

      p.s. getting bitten by a cockroach would freak me out! Ew! I check my shoes for spiders since watching something on a show about how some spiders have been people after they slip on their shoes.

      If you’re entering someone else’s house, you should obey their house rules period. Just don’t come over if you really don’t want to take off your shoes.
