Our submitter, Steffany, says she found this abandoned burrito in the microwave and set it on the table. When she woke up the next morning, she says, “my roommate had left me this a bitchy note…so I left one for her.”

My food is NOT your food. don't eat it. duh.  [response] You left this in the microwave when you were drunk, idiot.

    Apparently, the roommate is just as stupid sober as she is drunk if she thinks her roommate tried to eat her burrito by leaving it on the table uneaten.

      There are only a few comments, because after this, there’s really nothing more to say.

      I blame her parents for giving her a stupidly-spelled name. The stupidity just oozed into her soul.

      If I’m reading this right, it’s the roommate who was stupid, and the submitter with the stupidly-spelled name, but it probably wouldn’t be amiss to assume the roommate is named “Bryttni” or something.

      I thought the name of the drunk was “Duh”, and the sober roommate was named “Idiot”.

      No, quite the opposite. Duh is the sober flatmate who put the burrito on the table after finding it abandoned in the microwave, while Idiot is the drunky who didn’t realise she’d put the burrito in the microwave and wrote the stupid note about food stealing.

    I too know the inherent blind rage accompanying the sight of MY FOOD in an unauthorized location. However, I’d like to believe that, as I was putting a note on a completely unmolested piece of food, I would at least think to add something in about how that person should burn in hell for wasting my food and exactly how much (to the penny) they owe me for said frozen grossness. Might even throw something about African children in there as well. BECAUSE THAT’S HOW A PASSIVE-AGGRESSIVE NOTE IS DONE, PEOPLE!

    “Hey, that burrito smells just like my gas this morning! Weird!”

    She was angry because she was saving that burrito for the morning-after. Nothing cures a hangover in the morning like a bout of salmonella.

    Massive amounts of restraint shown in not writing DUH! on the response.

    I agree. A DUH was perfectly warranted in the response!

    GOtta wonder about the roommate relationship here. I lived with three girlfriends for a year, and not too long ago let a friend move in with me for six months after she moved out of her boyfriend’s place, and none of htem would have left a note ending in “Idiot.” They may have called me that to my face when laughing about something stupid I did, and I would have been laughing along with them, but the note implies they’re not even friends.

      Not all roommates/housemates are nice. I had one that called me a ‘retarded child’ because I had a learning disability, despite the fact that I used my disabled student’s allowance to pay our phone and internet bill. He also threatened me with a corkscrew, mocked me constantly for doing an information and library studies degree, told me that no white English girl like me could know more about cricket than a man of Pakistan descent (despite the fact that my mother was a qualified cricket coach), treated me like rubbish because of my sexuality, and steamed the neighbour’s cat with a kettle. These are just the highlights.

      You experience it, you deal with it, you move on. Unless he’d physically hit me, there was nothing I could do. In the end, I kind of got the upper hand because in all seriousness, he’s probably dead by now.

      Plus I know that I can handle my drink a lot better than he could, so I win. ;P

      Couldn’t you have reported him for animal cruelty over the cat?

      Holy crap, SilentPsycho. I thought my flatmate who puked in front of my bedroom door was the worst roomie ever. You win.

      Honestly, I think the best roommate relationships are ones where the roomies aren’t friends. It’s easier to establish rules of shared living and call them out on rule breaking when you don’t have friendship complicating matters. Similarly, you feel more aware of intrusion when it isn’t someone you’ve bared your soul to.

      Unless the person is Silent Psycho’s roommate.

      Holy cow, your roommate had mental issues… and I thought my former roommate who was super pushy and left passive aggressive notes was bad.

      Friend or not at the beginning, I always ended up hating my roommates or housemates with a passion before even 6 months were up. It was a surefire way to break my friendship with them.

      I’ve been lucky where I haven’t had to have a roommate, I do have an extra room that people can use for a night or two but I’ve had several friends talk about moving in and I but the kibosh on that quickly.

      In my personal experience, the best roommates are Albanians with drinking problems. The one I have been living with for three years has never made a sound apart from opening his room door, when going to sleep after a day at work and evening of drinking somewhere that is not in my home.

    Having a roommate situation where we share all the food (and budget it out at the end of the month so no one’s over- or underpaying) has really made our world a lot happier. The other common roommate problem — dishes — is also not a big issue because if someone leaves a pot in the sink you don’t usually get too angry, because you think about how you ate a bunch of that chili they made last night, and then you just wash it and move on with your life.

    Not saying everything’s always perfect, but it sure beats finding bitchy notes on top of day-old burritos.

    Is it me or do both notes look like they’re written by the same person?

      I was thinking the same and came in the comments to see if anyone else had noticed…

      I don’t really think so. Similar, but there are some differences. F, O, D, E and completely different A.
