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.)

Oh, how I love (totally tacky) reply-all e-mails.

Will whoever took the entire box of Passover macaroons for him/herself...That box was meant to be for everyone! I brought it in for the office, not for one person. That is totally tacky. Bring it back.

Thanks to submitter Kate in New York City — who says she has a whole inbox full of e-mails like this from the coworkers at her law firm.
