    Funny that ‘Angel’ is less into Christmas than Steph

      Maybe her attitude towards Christmas is “Been there, done that, appeared in a great company of the heavenly host, praising God.”

      Plus, remember that Angel did all that at The Original Christmas.

      Once you’ve been front row center at an actual virgin birth…well…
      Harry & David’s best stuff isn’t going to send you into ethereal bliss,
      and don’t even bother with that seasonal potpourri from the local mall.

    A clean apartment is nice, and if Angel thinks someone isn’t doing their part she should not being such a grumpy asshole about it. But then I guess if it weren’t for losers like Angel, this Web site wouldn’t exist.

      What’s wrong? Your mom make you clean up your ‘pad’ in her basement?

      Could you have come up with a more cliche joke?

      Anyway, Steph’s note was totally reasonable, friendly, etc., and Angel decided to be passive aggressive jerk about something totally unrelated in response.

      Your mom must have really yelled at you to get that room cleaned, eh? Oops sorry, didn’t realize Angel and Steph lived in your mom’s basement with you so you know all the details of their situation…or are you just projecting your own insecurities upon it?

      Don’t go to Adam’s basement apartment. He’s probably got rats living in piles of rotted food. Good thing he has dear old mom to do his laundry for him, or he’d never have any clean underwear!

      Oh, and wanting to clean existing messes before making more is hardly “unrelated.” Now go take a nap, you’re cranky.

      Put Santa hats on that rats, let that rotted food grow a nice coating of fluffy white mold, and thereyago.

      Whoa, since when is Steph’s note reasonable and friendly? “I’m going to decorate/add extra clutter based on my own ideas and traditions and passive-aggressively demand you pony up cash so I can make an extra mess of the place”. Sorry, but I’m pretty firmly on team Angel here.

    Silly, the decorations hide the mess. Then later the mess hides the decorations. Geology was founded on this principle.

    Suggestion for Steph: pick the junk up, put it in a box for Angel, wrap it and place under tree. Problem solved!

    I foresee a Christmas tree gaily decorated with junk mail, fast food containers and Diet Pepsi cans; and a tree skirt constructed of dirty laundry.

      Done with a heavy hand of humor, trees like that are a blast. Our first Christmas as a married couple, we were broke. We were able to buy a little fake tree, but couldn’t afford much of anything to put on it. We ended up using our pet snake’s shed skins as garland, random things as ornaments (including a can of potted meat food product), and topped it all off with a fake skull.

    I’m taking bets that Steph has an Angel atop her tree this year.

    Not a pretty picture either, if you think about how best to mount the tree-topper.

      Somehow the phrase Rudolph the Brown-Nosed Reindeer appeared.

      I probably could trace the etymology, but I definitely won’t.

    Whose side would Mickey be on? That’s the question you always have to ask yourself.

    If you don’t know the answer, then I’m afraid you don’t have enough novelty magnets.

    As someone who hid in the bathroom to avoid h.s. pep rallies, I refuse to have any spirit that I cannot pour into a glass and consume.

    They both seem annoying, but I’ll have to go with Team Angel because I dislike Christmas and people who try to force its ‘spirit’ on me. Also people who don’t clean up their own mess.

    They should give each other stationary and pink pens for Christmas. I forsee a long tradition of passive aggressive notes for pretty much every roommate dispute.

    This makes me wonder what kind of mess is being referred to. Are we talking about a few soiled dishes on the counter or a slaughtered goat in the bathroom?

    The Disney World stationary and magnets are a nice touch, although Angel’s disregard for ruling lines worries me.

      Oh yeah. Not writing within the lines, disregarding Christmas. That Angel’s a wild one.

    I am shocked at how many people are Team Angel. I’m going to have to go Team Steph on this one.
    Yeah she should clean up her mess, but that was an unecessary attack in note form. I imagine poor Steph reading the new note and being simply crushed. Way to ruin Christmas Angel.

      You can’t ruin Christmas. It can’t possibly suck any more than it already does.

      Yeah … I’m embarrassed to say how long I spent looking at them both trying to prove that Steph and Angel are the same person — because Angel’s printing is too suspiciously like Steph’s cursive.

    Hangon… the hand writing is practically the same. The only difference is in the second note, the person has made a attempt not to join up the letters.

    Fake in my opinion. Shame.

    I think I actually know the girl involved I have a friend “Steph” recently moved to Orlando working at WDW and this looks like her handwriting on the 1st note. I know she does not get along with her roomie & more impt I know she can be a slob which would justify the note. SO this is freaking hilarious to me!
