    LoL, you can tell the landlord had fun with this. Although with the heart and the colored in dotted i I think maybe “Will” had his daughter make this fine art. :)

      What a prick of a landlord to have seen him doing all of those things and not stop him doing so on the spot.
      Or is it possible that the landlord is assuming it was Jon?

      “…spill beer everywhere…?” Where does it say that? All it says it that some beer was spilled, not how much.

      Canthz – It’s possible that Jon is the only person renting said place and therefore would be the sole responsible party. So the landlord wouldn’t have to have actually seen the party to know who’s fault it was.

    • #3.5   Canthz_B bang

      Sure it’s possible. Any number of things are possible, including that some hobo decided to spend a few early morning hours on Will’s porch or that aliens from outer space took a break there after abducting Will’s neighbor, so feel free to make any assumption you’d care to make in the absence of any given facts of the matter.

      I still say a landlord who’s afraid to face his tenant like a man and communicates using sidewalk chalk in the morning rather than wake his now hung-over tenant and talk face-to-face or stop the bad behavior while it’s in progress is more of a prick than a guy who makes an irresponsible mess. I also think that assuming that since the guy had at least one beer he must be a violent drunkard is a bit of a stretch of the imagination given that there is no mention of drunkenness, loud noise or anything else associated with that type of scenario as we don’t know just how hard Jon partys. Is Jon hardcore or was he “partying” with his buddies from band camp? Did he party there or come home and hang outside for a while after partying somewhere else?

      The facts we do know are that Will either saw Jon or not, and that Will has blamed Jon for the Mess. We don’t even know if the mess was what a normal person would even consider to be a mess, if you’d stop to think about it. No pictures of huge puddles of beer or half-a-pack worth of discarded cigarette butts…but let your mind’s eyes create any scene you’d care to imagine. ;-)

      Cigarette ashes and butts in an area where children play is a mess per se. The landlord is responsible for common areas and therefore has every right to request Jon clean up. And, because we don’t know the history of the parties’ relationship it may have been perfectly reasonable that Will knew it was Jon. Maybe another tenant saw said party and complained to Will. Maybe this has happened before. Maybe it’s a duplex or two family home and the other tenant is a nun who has several adopted toddlers who use said table, so Will knows it wasn’t her.

      Lots of maybes. I agree with you…so why imagine the worst of Jon? How many butts? How many ashes? How much spilled beer? Has it happened before or not? Probably not, or Jon should have been evicted long ago. If priests molest children, why can’t nuns party on occasion?

      Reminds me of the psych evaluation test in which the patient is given pictures of situations and asked to describe what’s happening in the depicted scenes.
      You can tell a lot about a person by how they imagine. Some people speak volumes :-P

    • #3.8   The Elf

      Generally, yes leaving a mess like that is prickish, but I’d give him a one-morning pass on clean-up. If it was that great a party, he probably had no opportunity (or ability) to clean up night of. The next day, however, he has no excuses. If all that trash was still there on Day 2, that’s when the PAN becomes justifiable.

    • #3.9   oi

      Neither jon nor will seem to take this seriously. My theory is (Since everybody has one and CB I won’t make any assumptions that would assume anybody’s worse. I promise) Jon partied, Will came to know and did not think that it was a big deal but in the past other tenants did. So as a measure of good landlord he came up with this lovey dovey message to Jon, complete with heart and colors showing his insincerity but shameful for Jon nonetheless. As for Jon he partied and thought that sidewalk love letter was totally worth it. This letter does not seem to phase him in any way or shape. May be Will is aware of Jon’s brazen nature, that’s why he came up with it.
      Now it is possible that landlord wanted to publicly shame him but Jon isn’t any better he submitted here and bragged like a 12 year old.

      So I guess they are even in any case.

      LOL at CB – you were the first one to jump to conclusions, setting up the dichotomy that the landlord had either seen it and said nothing or was making assumptions. The “maybe”s that followed were people poking holes in your assumptions. Mine, at least, were not intended to be an all inclusive list. So the one extrapolating unsupported facts is really you, but that’s ok.

      Either way, the amount of beer, the amount of cigarette butts, that’s irrelevant. And, Elf, I don’t think Jon should get a day to chillax. There are ashes on the kids’ table, they should be gone, not at Jon’s leisure, but before KIDS want to use the KIDS’ table. It’s a common area in an apartment complex, you can use it sure but you have no right to interfere with other tenants’ use of the area indefinitely. Why should I have to delay my party cause you didn’t clean up from yours the previous night? If you want to sleep in let your guests use YOUR dining room table as an ash tray, then clean that whenever you want. Feel free to live like a pig, but do it in your own space.

      @CB Or is it possible that the landlord is assuming it was Jon?

      Or is it possible that you didn’t see “Jon’s assessment after a night of partying: ‘Totally worth it.’”? It’s not quite “f***ing delicious”, but it seems clear enough.

    • #3.13   Canthz_B bang

      I jumped to no conclusions. Questions are clearly not conclusions, Hater ( I also didn’t “set up” a dichotomy, simply stated a fact that while a dichotomy exists, it is not a false dichotomy. The landlord either saw Jon or he didn’t see Jon {maybe he thinks he heard Jon–a trichotomy!} and so must assume Jon spilled beer and left cigarette ashes (thinking someone did something wouldn’t hold up as witness testimony even in small claims court). The dichotomy existed before I happened to mention it. Any open-minded person can see that).
      Quite the contrary, I pointed out that there were other possibilities (no matter how ridiculous) and that it’s pretty irresponsible to come to any conclusion using the given information.

      OG, speaking of unsupported facts, where did you read anything about this being “a common area in an apartment complex”? The message on the walkway mentions a porch. Most of us associate porches with houses, not apartment complexes, so that’s a pretty large unsupported assumption for you to make.

      As for cleaning those pesky ashes, if there’s no breeze that day just whistle them away…you know how to whistle don’t you? Just put your lips together and blow. :-P

    • #3.14   Rhoddy

      I’ve been a landlord before (of my first ‘proper’ adult house, too, so I have no sympathy for people who get into the letting game to make a sly pound/dollar and moan when the place looks lived in by someone else – oooh tenant made a scratch on my wall – show them where the bloody paint is then) and I’m shocked by some of the nastiness towards the tenant flying about here.

      None of Jon’s supposed crimes are anything that can’t easily be cleaned up the morning after a party. If he rents the whole house and the kids’ play area is for use of non-existent kids or HIS kids then the fact that adult guests spilt a drink or left an ash tray there doesn’t exactly equate to him shoving fags and booze in their mouth before passing around the zippo.

      Different story if it’s communal, but the fact remains that there’s way too much ‘maybe’ and way too little respect for the fact that tenants are the erstwhile OWNERS of their land going on here for people to be hating on Jon, especially when it’s so obvious that both sides have taken the incident in stride.

    • #3.15   Oh Geeee

      CB – are you telling me what’s admissible in court?!? While state systems do differ slightly the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure states that any evidence having the propensity to prove one way or the other a relevant fact is admissible. The landlord hearing a party would be admissible. If Jon cleaned up afterwards that would be admissible. That Jon said, on this website, that the party was worth it would be admissible assuming Kerry would testify regarding the submission as a party admission. That someone else saw him and told Will would be admissible either through that persons testimony, or perhaps an exception to the hearsay rules. And, you did set up a false dichotomy in your initial post on the matter and then you just reinforced it… Either he saw it OR he made an assumption… Just not true. What everyone else was doing with the maybes is called parallel universe thinking, it’s where you brainstorm all sorts of possible explanations to keep from jumping to conclusions about someone. You declared the landlord an ass… You jumped to a conclusion. Try thinking of other possibilities. Stretch your mental muscles a bit and don’t always think the worst of someone.
      As for apartment complex, you’re right it probably is just a house with multiple tenants. The porch of the house is a common area, as are the stairwells. Will did not rent the porch to Jon specifically, it is there for the enjoyment of all tenants be that one or four. Will is responsible for upkeep. Also, even if Will had leased the porch that doesn’t necessarily mean Jon could trash it. Tenants ARE NOT owners in place of the owner during their tenancy. Tenants have a responsibility not to commit “waste,” which is a legal term of art that basically means “don’t decrease the value of the property, dude.” Furthermore there are probably contractual obligations and covenants in the lease, perhaps like no smoking (the first thing Will said). Those could also be enforceable.

      Oh, and to all, sorry for the typos :-/ I’m doing this on my phone and have trouble scrolling up to fix small things.

      OG, don’t burst a vein over this. If you weren’t so self-absorbed and overly invested in arguing with me, you’d have seen that my comment about admissible evidence was directed towards Hater, not you. It’s not all about you. LOL

      If you cannot see that far too many people are making far too many assumptions based upon far too little information given here, there’s really no point in any of this.
      You’re trying to argue a right and a wrong without many facts to base right and wrong on.
      You take Jon saying that he was partying to mean he must have been totally wasted (which Jon did not confess to being) and run with that as a given fact which it is not. Once you have that “fact” established, it’s easy to imagine all sorts of horrible behavior on his part, but that doesn’t change the actual fact that you’re still imagining what happened that night, because all we were given is that there was some beer spilled (not how much), more than one cigarette butt (not how many), some ashes on a table (not how many) and some matchsticks (again, not how many).

      Just going by what Will wrote, we really have no idea of the extent of the so-called damage wrought by Jon, we certainly have no idea how wasted Jon needs to be before he thinks anything is “worth it”, so you’re just living in Imaginationville and unable to admit that to yourself or others.
      As to admissible evidence, relevant evidence may be excluded if it is unfairly prejudicial, confusing, or cumulative in nature. Sometimes the prejudicial affects of the evidence outweigh their probative value, and the Judge has discretion as to whether or not to allow said evidence.

      I may know someone hates me. I may know he was near my car one night. But if I come out in the morning and my tires are slashed, I’m not going to win in court unless I actually saw him slash my tires or can produce someone who saw him do it. Strong suspicion and great likelihood just don’t meet the bar of factual evidence, because suspicion and likelihood don’t happen to in fact BE evidence.

      I’m no lawyer, but I’ve seen Judge Mathis, Judge Judy, Judge Joe Brown and many others state this as legal fact many, many times.
      You probably looked all that stuff up, huh? :-P
      I’m no know-it-all, OG, but I know a little bit about a lot of things. One thing I do know for sure is that getting all puffed up over an internet argument isn’t worth the effort.

      Federal Rules of Civil Procedure? Wtf? First of all, it’s the rules of evidence that would govern, not the rules of civil procedure. Second, small claims courts loosen the rules anyway so there’s no point to bickering over rules.

      CB – I actually am not feeling well, a bit of a cold really, thanks for your concern over my well being. My blood pressure is in pretty good shape.
      As for Imaginationville, I’m afraid this town isn’t big enough for the both of us and you seem so settled I would hate to disturb you. I never said Jon was wasted or based any arguments on that fact. I never speculated as to the amount of mess. I believe I said ashes on a kids table is a mess per se, amount doesn’t come into it. I never said anything about the amount of beer spilled, the amount of cigarette butts, the amount of alcohol consumed or any of that. You silly duck, stop arguing with the kind people inside your head and try to stay focused.
      As for the evidentiary matter – Neil you’re Sooo right it’s FRE not FRCP and you’re right they don’t really matter because different rules for different jurisdictions and small claims is special. I apologize for confusing the matter – I was merely trying to rebut CB’s bald statement regarding evidence with some examples. Eh this isn’t the first time I’ve made an unpersuasive argument and it won’t be the last lol. I guess therefore it’s silly to point out to CB that the dangers he listed must SUBSTANTIALLY outweigh the probative value for evidence to be excluded. Eh, couldn’t help it.
      As for looking stuff up, nah. I’m lying in bed sick and have nothing better to do than argue here. I’m argumentative by nature, more so when sick. But given that it’s totally not worth the effort to research things. Because I’m not as cool as CB, I don’t know a little about a lot; instead I know a little about a little and use that to the best of my ability. It sure is better than lying on the couch an watching daytime T.V. :-D

    To be sure there are plenty of men with good, legible handwriting, although I’m not one of them. Likewise, there are some women whose handwriting is atrocious.

    Let’s compromise and say “Will” is a gay man, and next time we see really bad penmanship we can say it was written by a lesbian.
    Such is life in the new four-gendered world. Yes, I’m stopping at four before my head explodes, bisects (bi-sex?) at the very least. :-P

      It’s not that Will has particularly good penmanship; his/her writing is just very loopy and round. In my experience, even when men have beautiful penmanship, they don’t write like this. Will writes like a lot of girls I knew in junior high, a point at which many of my sex seem to be stunted in terms of penmanship. I can’t help but think that Will is a woman, and not just for the heart and the flare for pastels.

      Isn’t over-generalization a wonderful thing?
      If we see “loopy” handwriting, it was made by a female (not saying this one wasn’t, BTW).
      If someone has a drink, they become violent.

      Hasty generalization (fallacy of insufficient statistics, fallacy of insufficient sample, fallacy of the lonely fact, leaping to a conclusion, hasty induction, secundum quid, converse accident): basing a broad conclusion on a small sample.

      Misleading vividness: involves describing an occurrence in vivid detail, even if it is an exceptional occurrence, to convince someone that it is a problem.

      Package-deal fallacy: consists of assuming that things often grouped together by tradition or culture must always be grouped that way.

      Spotlight fallacy: when a person uncritically assumes that all members or cases of a certain class or type are like those that receive the most attention or coverage in the media.

    I like the “the landlord” has quotation marks. Perhaps Will is not truly the landlord and it’s just a nickname? Maybe Will is just the super-clean roommate and has had to remind Jon to do basic good roommate/tenant stuff so many times he’s called “the landlord.” Or maybe I’ve been drinking. Who knows. Either one is possible.

    When I first read this, I was irritated, but then I remembered a note my former landlord posted around the complex that wasn’t nearly so nice (or colorful). We weren’t allowed to smoke in our apartments, which is quite reasonable, but we also weren’t allowed to smoke anywhere on the grounds, including the parking lots in our own cars. Yes – I’m serious. By the way, I don’t smoke and never have.

    She tacked up a very threatening note about how this wasn’t FRANCE (all capital letters) and we weren’t entitled to FRENCH RIGHTS. (Huh?) And then she warned us that she was sending spies out and that if anyone reported to her that we were smoking, we’d be evicted in 30 days without warning. Hardcore.

    So, needless to say, I hated telling guests that they couldn’t smoke in their cars on the grounds and that they had to walk into the street, on a steep hill, to light up.

      I’m just throwing this out as a possibility because it seems the most likely scenario given the cutesy nature of the note and the medium chosen. I happen to know a female Tommy, several Jerrys, Haydens, Michaels, and plenty other females with male names. It’s not completely unheard of that a female can bear a gender-opposite name.

    Canthz B,

    Perhaps it was Jon’s friends playing a joke, not the landlord checking-in. Have you ever dealt with a landlord that conducts business this way? I’m guessing you haven’t, since they DON’T do business this way. Try being less of a prick, and stop acting so superior. Life will still be fun – I promise.

    • #23.1   Canthz_B bang

      Perhaps so. You could be quite right, because we all know that it is common practice to carry sidewalk chalk when going out partying so you can play pranks of this type on your friends later.

      Stop being so judgemental.

      All I’ve said is that there are infinite possibilities here, and that making assumptions about facts not on offer is not wise.
      You cannot say “…they DON’T do business this way”, because this one just may have.

      BTW, I’m not “acting so superior” to those who would make up a version of a situation and then comment based upon their made up scenario…I am superior to them, probably to you as well, based upon your comment alone that is, because you have assumed that all landlords are reasonable people thereby over-generalizing the behavior of landlords.

      No, I’ll never do anything that has anything to do with less prick. :-P

      If they have kids there is a good chance they DO have sidewalk chalk somewhere in their car. I carry around all kinds of toy crap in my car leftover from my kids. So it is actually very possible that while my kids are at my mom’s I could get drunk and play a prank with sidewalk chalk from my car should I want to.

      I had sidewalk chalk in my house even before I had kids because I liked to draw occasionally on the sidewalk.

    Canthz B,

    I stand corrected. You are clearly right. Only landlords creep around in the early morning hours carrying chalk. Their lease agreement is probably spelled out on the living room wall in crayon. Get real.

    • #24.1   Canthz_B bang

      No, but the landlord was at home and would only have to step into his child’s room to pick-up the chalk. Whereas Jon’s friends would have to have either pre-planned the prank to have packed along the chalk (this would require that they’d know in advance that he’d spill beer and leaves ashes on the kids’ table later that night)…or take their drunk asses home, acquire chalk and return to carry out the plot.

      “early morning hours” is a very vague term to hang our hats upon. Would that be 1 or 2 AM, 3 or 4 AM, or 7 or 8AM?? Because nothing given us says just what time the note was written.

      Of the two, I’d say it’s decidedly less likely that Jon’s friends wrote this than that Will wrote it, but whatever floats your boat.

    • #26.9   Canthz_B bang

      LOL, I never said I’m above giving as much as I get, but I try not to make negative comments about the person as much as about their positions.
      I’ve not been perfect at that, but as they say, “God’s not finished with me yet.”, and I did say “…in general”, meaning that I don’t see your name and automatically assume I will not agree with what you’ve written. Oftentimes I agree on something with someone with whom I’ve disagreed on another matter in the past. That’s called having an open mind.
      And I wouldn’t be alone in not being perfect in this regard, as Rattus recently posted, “Perri Rhoades, you are a fucking idiot who also apparently lacks any sense of self-control. ”
      I do start every note with jokes or comments about the notes, but even then someone is bound to make a comment about the number of my comments if I happen to have more than two ideas of how to look at the matter.
      I reserve the right to rebut such comments. I try to rebut them as articulately as my limited vocabulary allows, and what do I get but accused of trying to “act superior” to others?
      What?! “Act Superior” because I know how to use words to express my thoughts? Superior to whom? The reader or what the reader expects me to be?? Do you know how that tickles my bigotry radar???
      I’ve read many a word here by many an intelligent person, even had to look a few up to follow along…but I’ve never in all these years seen anyone else accused of “acting superior” to anyone because of their use of the language. Is there a way you could suggest that I may effectively “act inferior” to other posters on this site, because I confess to not being raised to know how to “act inferior” to anyone else?

      I have no doubt but that in the future, near or far, there will me other negative comments flowing forth from my fingertips, but above you’ll find a comment about me not the note, which began this #26 thread.

      My two responses were really quite benign in comparison to the comments made about me without being in any way linked to the note published by Kerry.
      Hell, bookworm started it for no known reason, and Rattus talks about my interactions with other posters without regard to the fact that I recently agreed with them both on a particular matter.

      As for myself, I don’t come out of the box hating on anyone, but have the capacity to go long and deep if need be. You can keep the conversation on an elevated plane, and I’ll stay there with you…but if you want to drag it into a ditch, I’m perfectly capable of rolling in the mud with you.

      The choice is, as it has always been, yours.

    • #26.10   Oh Geeeee

      CB – it’s true you sorta got called out here, which is a bit harsh but do you wonder why folks called you out? I don’t think this is the first time. Is it the frequency of your commentary? The cleverness of your puns? The exactitude of your vocabulary? What is going on? To be fair, I don’t know why this topic started either but speaking from personal experience you can be off putting to someone new to these boards. I’m honestly just throwing my two cents in, in case it helps communication in the future. Also, I’m a little concerned about the ‘bigotry’ reference and want to try and get my name crossed off the ‘bigot’ list. I mean, is there a list?

      In our very first conversation which was all of like two-three months ago, and my first time posting, you were so disparaging of my opinions regarding health care that you acted as though they basically weren’t worth a response. You flat out said I should know of what I speak, beginning with the difference between Medicare and Medicaid (cliff notes version for folks who don’t want to look it up, don’t worry – I did and do know the difference, I was talking about something else entirely). Ya also said you weren’t going to respond to my ignorant arguments because you were trying to become “nicer.” You explained that your experience in the field meant that my opinions on the matter were worthless. A fact I should respect because you fix mistakes in the system ensuring healthcare for comfortable SOBs like me – or something along those lines. That may be an example of the superior attitude that turns some folks off.

      As for the name calling, yeah that same conversation you were name calling and you did it first (I feel like I’m telling my Mommy on you “Mommy, CB, some random internet dude, called me a bad name FIRST”). I’m not saying you should be perfect, but you did say just now “I sure as hell don’t start making negative comments about people just because I don’t happen to like their postings in general.” Anywho, I tried not to take it personally but being called a dumb-ass, selfish bastard, comfortable SOB, did create a small tear in my otherwise unblemished self esteem. Discussing these base insults took up at least half an hour of my weekly therapy session. Personal insults can be intimidating and turn folks off. Especially when, (whimper) they try so hard (starting to cry) to have (crying harder) an intellectually thoughtful and challenging dialogue (sobbing) and thus gain the respect of a complete stranger such as yourself. Now I know you don’t care what folks think of or say about you because we’re nothing to you. But you do seem to care about these boards, you’re only on them constantly. Anddddddddd because of that it’s worth acknowledging that not everyone is as thick skinned as you have proven to be, or, like me, blessed with an ego the size of Alaska.

      Also, so you don’t worry that I’m obsessing over you – I am. No, no, just kidding (shifty glances)… really, you’re just my latest excuse to avoid what I should be doing, cleaning, studying, etc. .

      LOL, I don’t mind being called out…just being called out for no damned reason.
      If some people need to comment on PAN. the least they could do is comment with some reference to the notes rather than confining their comments to other posters.

      I’m perfectly capable of defending myself, but shouldn’t have to do so out of context.
      I’m happily reading along the comments after a day of work and an evening of carrying out my household duties, and out of nowhere comes this bookworm comment about me having nothing to do with the subject of the day, and what was your response to bookworm about that? Nothing.

      All of the comments have timestamps if you’d care to read them, so that crap about how often I’m here is your own misconception that you seem content to embrace. My local time is two hours after PAN-time, so if you think I’ve posted at 10:30AM, it was 8:30AM my time…about an hour before I need to be at my job. You won’t find very many more between then and late-night PAN-time unless I’ve taken a day off or gone in really early on our flex-time schedule…in which case you’ll see no early morning postings from me.
      For some odd reason, I tend to think that my paycheck is more important than anything here on PAN, go figure.

      As far as any debate about health insurance, I do remember pointing out that medicare and medicaid should not be grouped togeter as if the are in any way the same program, and also vaguely recall pointing out later that I am intimately familiar with the internal workings of the health insurance industry, but that only to give some context to readers that I’m not talking out of my ass on the subject. Just like if the discussion had been about a legal matter and someone pointed out that they were a practicing lawyer they’d be asking that we consider more seriously what they have to say on the matter considering that we are not lawyers.

Plus your response was so indignant I had to say something, lol. Then you may have implied that some/all of us are bigots. Not sure where you were going with that. And like many people who do not fall into traditionally disadvantaged classifications I responded defensively, more or less by saying “I’m no bigot and neither are they, if folks think you act superior and like a big ol’ jerkfish, it’s cause sometimes ya do.” If bookworm implies I’m a bigot I’ll probably find some way to write like thirty pages of defensive blah about him too.

      For some reason only half your message came up last time – maybe you were editing it or some odd thing. Or maybe I was tired and missed it.

      For pete’s sake, in an entire posting chock full of hyperbole you’re going to become all snippy because I said you’re on here “constantly.” Just as I never said Jon was wasted and you’d imagined that, I also never said you cared more about PAN than your job or your paycheck or your social life or your tv watching schedule or any other gosh darned thing. Okey dokey?

      As for that last paragraph, I call bullshit. But I wouldn’t want you to have to defend yourself without context and so I give you . . . yourself:

      “I happen to work in the heath care industry, my company was instrumental in constructing the current heath care bill/law and I respectfully submit that you don’t fully understand the subject. I’ll leave it at that as I am working on becoming a kinder and gentler CB.”

      “Can’t speak to Connecticut’s Medicare system…because there isn’t one . Medicare is Federal, you probably mean to say Medicaid…which I happen to pay claims for every day for Connecticut, Maryland, Texas and Arizona.

      It sometimes pays to know of what you speak. You might start by learning the difference between Medicare and Medicaid. ;-)

      Issues, surely there are…rest assured that I’m there to help get some of those issues resolved. That’s what I do for a living. I make sure your health plan works well so you can be free to deny health care to others. As a Research and Adjustment Analyst I find and correct system errors for your dumb ass. I do my small part for your welfare, you comfortable SOB. ;-)”

      And for the record, you, and your vast knowledge of health care, had been off the mark. I’d been talking about the Massachusetts Health Care Act, which is neither medicare nor medicaid so your condescension had been uncalled for ;-). But that’s a debate that belongs to the past. The point is, your own verbiage does you in. You were not alerting the reader to the basis of your knowledge to better inform the discussion. And you were not indicating that medicare and medicaid had been lumped together inappropriately. But that is a nice attempt to spin things. Kudos.

      On a more serious note (and you may say something in the mean time and screw it all up) you’ve given me an interesting perspective on how someone might feel upon being accused of acting superior. It wouldn’t have occurred to me ordinarily that someone could take it in a racially motivated manner, which is a result of my ignorance of the times and culture in which you grew up. My exposure to accusing someone of acting superior had largely been differentiations based on socio-economic class or education. Ya know “don’t go acting superior just because you have an X degree, you’re no better than anyone else.” And when based on socio-economic class or education it’s still obnoxious but much less inflammatory than racial statements. I guess that’s one more thing I’ll put on my list to be careful of :-) and hope that when I inevitably tread on someone’s toes by saying something stupid they give me enough of a heads up to apologize and profess my ignorance.

      I’m not snippy about anything, though I do take exception to some things (why my exceptions/objections/disagreements should be considered “snippy”, or “acting superior” is another question which raises my “racedar” antennae, can’t I just openly and honestly disagree without characterization?). I don’t hold 2 month-old conversations against anyone as if neither they nor I have said anything since that particular 2 month-old exchange to shed any deeper light about one another to one another.
      First impressions are only lasting impressions if we close our minds and choose to make them so.
      I prefer to live in the now.
      Not that I’ve always been perfect at that, but I don’t hold grudges and only bring up past posts when the directly…directly contradict a heartfelt position one has espoused in the past.
      Not nit-picking BS comments meant as small jokes later taken seriously.
      I never said anything about you saying “I never said anything about the amount of beer spilled, the amount of cigarette butts, the amount of alcohol consumed or any of that. You silly duck, stop arguing with the kind people inside your head and try to stay focused.”, because I never said you said any of that. I was just pointing out that we have to interpret the given facts in order to form an intelligent opinion about them. I left the kind people inside my head out of it and stayed focused ignoring what I could have taken as an intended insult, because I know you are above insulting anyone as you’ve accused me of doing so much, and showing such distaste for it, that I know that behavior is beneath you so you’re incapable of being guilty of doing so yourself.
      “Oh come now…do you read what you write?!? Attack the issue and not the person is a standard you apply to others but certainly not one you follow yourself.” Who wrote those words? I wonder if we scroll up what we’ll find?

      PAN works best when we engage each other note-by-note, not when we engage in thumb-wrestling our egos against one another.

      I don’t see where you’ve posted what comment my words were referring to, so I’ll take your word for it that I said all of that for no reason at all.
      Looks like when I said “Can’t speak to Connecticut’s Medicare system…because there isn’t one .” , you may have said something alluding to Medicare and the State of Connecticut which prompted my response, but since I don’t know the conversation verbatim, I’d just as soon let that all rest in peace.

      Oh geeeeeeeee, I had this whole thing written out showing where you did say all that stuff about amount and used that to declare me a resident of “Imaginationville” but hells – if folks want to see that all they have to do is hit control find (for the kids playing at home search “Imaginationville”). It’s pretty blatant. In the end, you’re right. You have called me any one of a number of things in the past few months, none of them very pleasant. Generally my guess is that we do not have similar senses of humor in that I don’t think its amusing to lodge personal insults. I had tried very hard previously not to respond with the same general tone. But this time, after the Imaginationville quip, for some reason, I lost my self control enough to throw an insult back your ways. It was inappropriate and I am sorry. Not so much sorry to you, but sorry to everyone else who wants to read crazy arguments but without personalized insults thrown in.

      Congrats to you though, CB. First, for causing me to slip into being someone I don’t necessarily want to be through frustrating the shit outta me (and ya still do, friend) and second, for calling me on it. This has been a good talk. Consider the hatchet buried ;-)

      To all those ganging up on CB and peddling the smarmy sanctimonious Don’t You Think All The People Arguing With You Are Right? bullshit, can we just agree that’s a bandwagon fallacy and be done with it already? Fallacies don’t effectively convince.

    LOL Love it! I used to draw intricate sidewalk chalk drawings when I was a teenager on our pathway so this amuses me. It will stay there too until it rains.

    Controversy,opposing opinions,pontificating,pissing people off.That’s what keeps this page interesting.

    Keep on slugging it out folks.

    God forbid there’s a little ash on a kid’s outdoor table. Will needs to chill, seriously this Jon character could definitely be worse.

      It’s Britain. He was being understated. I love the note, and Jon doesn’t seem to be too upset about it. I’ve seen the wreckage after even a small gathering of people. Parties make messes. Plus, might be Will’s kids’ table. Somehow seems that Will and Jon live in close proximity.

      …Britain? The tags say “Ohio”. There’s an Ohio in Britain?

      Thanks, FeRD. I thought I originally read it as ‘Jon from the U.K.’. I must have been tripping. Maybe they’re understated in Ohio, too.

    So, the tenant had a party and there is a mess. big deal, it happens. If its not cleaned up by the following morning, then it’s an issue. My neighbor has had parties and the people have spilled over onto my porch, and left bottles and cigg butts. It got cleaned up promptly the next day and I didn’t care. All of that aside, if my landlord ever left me a similar note in sidewalk chalk I would laugh my head off.

    Canthz_B, you are just so horrible. Really, you’re such an absolute bitch. And you’re not even a funny bitch.

      I’m not even a bitch!

      ROTFL at your deep thoughts, and thanks so much for acknowledging my existence by being sucked in by my all-powerful personality.
      Sure, you could have taken the high road and just ignored me, but my attraction was just too great for you, so you sank to a depth you’d never have thought you would and decided to spend some time just to call me a name instead of doing something productive with yourself.

      Well done! :lol:

    Dear lord Canthz_b.

    You do prattle on.

    Relax a little, unwind.

    Have a cup of tea.

    We get it, you think someone online is wrong and the only reason you “win” is because people get sick of the teal deers and lose interest.

      So, are you supposed to be a strange version of me, but like, taller or something? Wider? Fatter? I can’t understand what the extra “a” signifies.

      Also you blow at gigglebraxing.

      LOL..If I prattle on, what are those who continue to respond to me (like you, aaaa) doing? OG and I had a reasonably cordial conversation. We interacted, yet only I prattled? You have your place in the sun now. I’d suggest you leave it at that. ROTFL :mrgreen:

      OG, hatchet now buried, there’s a section of this site called “community” where conversations can be held off of the main thread about the notes. There used to be a lot of activity over there, and it can be a good place to better get to know one another and form some strong friendships.

      The community was once an active, vibrant place here. Perhaps a few curious, open-minded people interested in friendship and growth could make it so again.
      There’s a link at the top of the page. Make of it what you will.
      Who knows? Maybe willing participants will become the second generation of what used to be called “The Regulars” around here! :-)

    I would write on some a friend’s sidewalk, after having attended their party
    (on the way out thus giving the direction of the words), giving specific detail as to actual events that occurred during the party, and sign their landlord’s name to the note as a practical joke. Particularly if there were a kiddy table near by with sidewalk chalk lying about and I had heard that their landlord relatively kept up with “look” of the complex…..
