Bad dog! Stop that! Right now!

March 31st, 2011 · 50 comments

When I read this landlord’s note…

AHEM..."SOMEONE" KEEPS LEAVING THIS DOOR OPEN. THIS IS VERY, VERY BAD!! STOP THAT!! RIGHT NOW!! THE MANAGEMENT THANKS YOU.

…this is roughly the image that came to mind:

Stop that! Right now!

Anyone else?

    Management should stand by the door with a rolled-up newspaper. And a bag of gummy worms for those who remember to close the door firmly.

    “Ahem… I am well aware that I keep leaving the door open. I am such a bad, bad, BAD person! Will I stop right now? I haven’t done it then, why should I do it now?” — That very very bad “Someone” : )

      I’m sure that “someone” has some riccola in their pocket that could fix that cough.. but that’s if Management would step away from the OPEN door long enough to not get a cold!

    Where is Caesar when you need him to “Tssst” that “someone” in the behind to fix such common annoyances? I can see it now, “You got to have a positive, relaxed energy.. be dominant, he can feel your hesitance.. Be the leader, be one with the pack!”

      I love this pack, Tickle, but calm submissive states are for followers, not pack leaders, and I choose to delude myself! :-P

      Everyone here thinks they’re Alpha PA. That’s why ya gotta jump in with both feet and remember the brilliant teachings of Alfred E. Neuman and ask yourself “What, Me Worry?” before posting here…because there’s always some ass who takes a disliking and wants to screw with you (me at least, as if that will make them their bones or something.)
      I guess I’m that important to some people. How’s that for Alpha status? They prove it (my status, and that of a few other long-time PANistas) by the very act of trying to disprove it.
      I always get a kick out of that irony.

      My advice is: for Goodness sake grow a thick skin, because the game is afoot, and it just may be you or me on any given day! :-P

      P.S. Live and learn, meant to post down here, not after the first post. Sorry! This is so embarrassing.

      P.S.S. BTW. The delete button seems rather, ummm, counter-intuitive. Am I the first person to accidentally post in the wrong place? Why can’t “delete” just, ummm, delete?

      Why, look, it deleted! (Since I don’t see the post you’re talking about, I can assume it used to be there, but now it’s gone. I’m willing to take your word for it, regarding its previous existence.)

      The reason “delete” is a request, is to keep you from removing any awesome 3am drunken rants that you might happen to post to the site, then regret the next morning. Because where’s the entertainment value in regret?? :D

    I’ve seen this! I encouraged someone to take a picture of it! It’s in Portland, Maine at my friend’s apartment building. I hope it was she who submitted it. The first words out of my mouth when I saw this beacon of passive aggression were, “Someone needs to submit this to passiveaggressivenotes.com, like, now.” So, I’m glad someone did.

    I really don’t understand what is bad about this note, because leaving the door open means people can come in and steal valuable things.
    Or is it different in the United States?
    I don’t understand the bashing in this particular case :((
