This note of course left by “the messiest roommate of them all,” says Kate in Boston.

Dear Apartment — Our old sponge was gross so I guess that why no one likes to do dishes. But we have a new one now! Try it out! <3 Apartment

This isn’t just a note — it’s a work of art. And it’s about 100 shades of amazing.

I’ll let Rich explain: “I had a party at my house once in college, and one of our roommates who was going to be gone was really scared that someone was going to sleep in his bed. so, instead of, you know, telling us not to use his room, he decided to post this hilarious note that only an aspiring personal injury lawyer could produce.”

Along with the Mad Bomber series, I’d say this note is one for the hall of fame. There are so many amazing elements here I can’t even pick a favorite.

Yay! No more loud obnoxious roommates! which one of these is not like the other? (2 of 2)

From an all-girls floor of a Boston University dorm…

Just a friendly note: Kindly shut the door when you're making out.

Ah, college. Thanks to Vicky in Boston for submitting!

A common misconception

June 5th, 2007 · 25 Comments

Dispatches from an oh-so-common passive-aggressive battleground: “the common area.”

YO ANDY WHAT'S THE DEAL W/ MY PAINTS & STUFF?? WHY DO YOU U KEEP MOVING THEM?? ISN'T THIS THE COMMON AREA??

THESE TABLES ARE EVERYBODY'S NOT JUST YOURS! IF U CAN STORE JUNK UNDER THEM, I CAN STORE PAINT ON TOP OF THEM. WORD.

So, whose side are you on?

Arrivederci, asshole

Sara is one of seven students sharing an apartment in Venice. After three months of living together, she says, it became clear that one of the flatmates had to go: he had nasty habits like, um, pleasuring himself in his in other people’s bedrooms while they were out.

“We gently told him we thought it was better for everybody if he looked for another house,” Sara says, but he didn’t take the hint. So one of the other roommates decided to leave him this note:

arrivederci, asshole

Roughly translated from the Italian, it reads: “It’s time you leave.”

(He did.)

The Post-it Wars

After receiving numerous “helpful tips” from her roommate at the University of Minnesota…

Tips for keeping counters clean!

TIP: If you use the sponge, squeeze it out and put it on the side of the sink. It will last longer and not get stinky! Thanks

DISH ETIQUETTE:  1) Please soak pots & pans IMMEDIATELY after use.  2) Put dishes in dishwasher right after washing them out.   3) Place cleaned cookware on a towel next to the sink.  4) Rinse dishes right after use.  5) Be considerate!

…Lydia decided to add a few “tips” of her own. (The large signs on the oven and the microwave were already there.)

Roommate's revenge

I would prefer

“I still put my stuff all over his couch,” says Ryan in D.C., who adds that this note is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to his “anal-retentive” roommate. Ryan will be moving out of the apartment soon, but (in a final passive-aggressive gesture) says he has stuffed the couch full of candy wrappers for his roommate to find.

I would prefer if things were not left on my couch. Thanks!
