From Austin, Texas: a last-ditch attempt to get rid of a houseguest who took “Mi casa es su casa” a bit too literally…

Be out by Friday or I will remove you & change the locks (Hug Me)

    Is that written on a candy heart?

      That would be seriously impressive, but it would involve a lot more time than any reasonable person would spend getting the writing just right. Oh, wait… (^_~)

      ~~~

      A rent-paying friend of mine got one of these way back when from a roommate who was the master (mistress?) of passive-aggressiveness. She’d gone from leaving the newspaper out and open to the rentals section, to turning on the dishwasher whenever he got in the shower, to letting her dog spooge on his stuff, to burning cookware, breaking dishes, severing computer cables, and anything else easily destroyable by “accident”… to finally scrawling a note for him to find that said “GET OUT.” Over the space of a month, IIRC. (Of course, she had no idea how it got there.)

      To this day it beats me what he did to piss her off so thoroughly; he swears it was nothing more than “My-friend-doesn’t-like-you-and-I-want-her-to-come-over-more-so-you-should-leave”.

    I call fake. I had a candy heart with this written on it the other day and understand it to be one of the more common candy heart phrases.

      It is. Don’t be fooled by the CUTIE PIE heart with the ‘Please clear the unused microwave time!’ too. I get that one all the time.

    What an odd way to tell a gay friend to come out of the closet.

    It looks like something he found under the fridge from ages gone by and jotted the note onto it. Gnawed, stained, faded…

    Hey, some people come for SXSW and never leave. I can relate.

    He wrote that note on a plastic Valentine’s Day plate. I got the same plates from Target. The ‘Hug Me’ is what makes this note so beautifully PA.

    I see, one of those rough love/hate relationships. If he (or she) continues to delay the actual end of their time together – Friday becomes Saturday becomes next Christmas – it will only become that much worse. I feel for everyone involved in this sad, sad tale.

    I miss Austin. The best looking women in the universe, except for maybe Singapore. If the person getting the boot is a lady type, with hair like Farrah, mi couch is su couch, baby.

    What is that weird “and” symbol she’s using?

    I had an ex-girlfriend write me the same note. I wasn’t out in time, and now my chastity belt key doesn’t work.

    Who’s going to survive that hug? Smells like backstabbing.

    Nice use of punctuation and nifty gnaw marks on the bottom of the heart.

    Me wonders what gender wrote this.

      With gnaw marks like that, I’m wondering what species wrote this.
