I'm trying to find out her name so I can link her to this thread once she's been condemned appropriately.
it looks like you've been taking your flatmate and her contributions for granted.
Erin has saved nearly 30p thanks to that lightbulb.
she can do what the hell she likes with it.
the lightbulb is a bit much tho!
She's not moving out!
The letter was completely unecessary though, just move your shit out and dont mention it again (and leave the light bulb, christ)
it said she DIDN'T take the lightbulb
Alot more than it should have. Good work
My girlfriend had a note-leaver in her flat the first year at uni.
Said flatmate used girlfriend's milk, so she left a sarcastic, retaliatory note.
Flatmate went absolutely spare about it - Went and bought her another bottle of milk and basically shoved it in her face 'Here's your fucking milk. I can't wait til I never have to see you again'.
It sounded hilarious.
Better passive aggression would've been to say something like...
-'Decided to do some tidying up! Hope I haven't scooped up anything that's not mine. Enjoy the tidiness peeps!'
(Knowing full well that you've recycled someone's magazines, chucked out an ornament, and dribbled mr sheen all over someone's picture frame.)
Did I put passive-aggressive notes by mistake?
her leaving her pond in the communal area
I know this as I have the same problems as you normally, too :)
I'm not generally a fan of leaving notes as a way of dealing with these issues. But on the other hand, I know what it's like to live with people who don't even try to be civil about these things. I also know what it's like to live with that kind of person when you buy all the communal items, always end up cleaning up after them, etc, and being polite doesn't really work.
Basically if she's in that situation and doesn't really feel the need to play nice any more, then I can sympathise. It's a bit dramatic otherwise.
So she left all the important shit? Sounds like the rest of the house have Tv and lights still and can steal her food but no longer trip over her shoes and discarded clothes.
Fucking WIN! Best flat mate ever...
The lady who owned it took the carpets, lightbulbs and radiators with her
that end in the words 'I could've been harsher!'
She's clearly having a hard time, and now she also has a bunch of indie morons laughing at her behind her back too. nice.
She should have emailed her flatmates?
I am saying she should sit FACING the screen rather than having her back to it.
Check your FB.

After all the shouting on the weekend about me "Thinking everything in the flat is mine" I have decided to remove all my belongings from communal areas: The exceptions being:
- my food
- my toiletries
- Virgin media boxes
- extension lead in living room to the TV area
- the energy saving light bulb in Erin's room.
If I have accidentally packed away something of yours let me know & I will return it. As I had provided the original items I won't be contributing to any replacements if you choose to buy them.
P.S. In case you are wondering this is not a sign of me moving out.
I type really fast when I'm copying.
I find the note baffling. She's left all the important shit that anyone cares about, unless she took all the pots and pans and sofa into her room, or something?
But maybe took the TV, PS3, DVD player, various pieces of furniture, etc.
This is the mystery of the note. I want that mystery cleared up! :D
So if her food or toiletries run out she's not going to pay for new ones? What? WHAT?
she's taken some unspecified stuff (probably the sofa and pans). If they want to replace the sofa and pans, she's not going to put any money in for them. Which is stating the obvious really.
But she made so many weird things that I need to know the important stuff.
I took my X-box into my room the other day. NO-ONE ELSE PAID TO HAVE FUN ON IT.
i've got a housemate like that, has left enough passive aggressive notes over the past year to paper the house.
she also had a massive go at me a few months back for leaving dishes to soak for about 2 days (alright it's not great behaviour) BUT then she's left the same slimy casserole dish out to soak for about a week now. also she's making the fridge stink with gone off vegetables, and if anyone else had done it a stupid note would've appeared by now. might leave one myself on the fridge TAKE THAT HOUSEMATE
sometimes it gets really annoying if all the stuff in your house is yours and people take it for granted, like start hogging it or complain when you use it too much. I have been a bit annoyed that I have been practically forced out of the living room on a few occasions when trying to watch "insert sport/show" here despite owning 'the communal' Surround Sound, Xbox, Tv, DVD Player, The TV portion of the Virgin Medial bill.... but I wouldn't do anything like that unless someone was being a real tit about it!
though to be fair in my current house the instruments are a bit communal so I guess that sort of levels out ;)
she's been using OTHER people's stuff 'as if it's hers', they complained to her, and so as petty revenge she's removed all the stuff that's hers, to show that they treat her stuff 'as if it's theirs'. Which is some quite complex fuckwittery.
rabble rabble rabble!
I CAN'T GET FB AT WORK!!!!
But from this letter I automatically take her side as I have been forced to dothe same thing in the past and judging by what she has 'left' in the communal areas..what has she taken?
the dressing up box
the dog basket
The yard broom
...we used his bedroom as a farting space. We called it the ''Toot Box''
He was really particular about people not using his massive plate, to the extent that he used to hide it. I used to spend more time than was strictly neccessary finding it to use it. I wouldn't have bothered if we hadn't had a couple of noise complaints about him that we were all getting shit about. He was looking for his towel once, I told him I had set it on fire. I hadn't, obviously, it was exactly where he'd left it but his reaction was priceless: just a blank look and the words 'why would you do that?'
I've just moved in with people i don't know, one of which is particularly fussy. He's not really been that passive aggressive except a fb message which i didnt even notice which said the usual crap about having to clean up my stuff, which i thought was condescending and a bit crazy after two weeks but whatever. then, a few days ago we were enjoying the sunshine, me and three mates out the back with some beers. we'd left some empties on the table and we were outside for less than an hour- I came back and the kitchen was clear except for my housemate, who told me he 'had' to clear the table, in his fake apologetic tone, trying to convince me that he's sorry for having to be such a fussy fucker.
But i'm glad i can get it out nonetheless.
How does she know she's taken the right stuff unless they settled the argument, in which case, no problem?
She says she'll give back anything she's taken that they think is theirs, but that's only going to lead to more arguments.
This note is either unnecessary or a ticking time bomb.
