What was that post about household rules? May 21, 2007 9:03 PM   Subscribe

Does anyone remember an AskMe post from a year or so ago where a list of household (maybe food specific) rules were generated and the OP was advised to print out the post and put it up for housemates to read?

I ask because of this GREAT blog full of passive aggressive notes from other people. I saw this via boingboing and was reminded of that post.

Wasn't that guy a Vermonter? I think I friended him on Flickr let me see if I can track it down....

I recall the print out being posted on the fridge and there being a flickr photo of it... not sure if VT or not.

chefscotticus' solution (see also jessamyn's photo link) was genius. k8t you should send the link to that blog.

Darnit, I have great stories about this sort of thing, but this isn't an appropriate thread for it. Or for this entire comment, really. Nevertheless, I'm quite glad to have a lovely and understanding wife as a housemate instead of the train wrecks I've lived with over the years.

Where did I just read a (probably apocryphal) story about someone putting peanut oil in her milk because she suspected (correctly) that the milk thief was a certain guy who happened to be allergic to nuts?

I like that blog too, but I really don't think of note-leaving or sign-posting as inherently passive-aggressive. I'm right, right? Since I really hate truly passive-aggressive behavior, it bothers me to hear the term diluted.

OH HEY LOOK they're talking about that on the blog now, sorry.

ALMOST good enough for me to overlook her horrrid fatosity.
