Pay back

This is post rated PG-13. Munchkins shouldn't read it cuz of some great ideas!
So I went to college at Eastern Washington University my freshman year of college. I lived on a all girls floor in one of the towers on campus. There was about 20 rooms on the outside of the circle. The center, which all the rooms opened out to, was the bathroom, kitchen, laundry, elevators and study 'closets.' So if you walked around from room to room, it was a circle.
In this bathroom, we had four showers. They had their own walls but you could look over them to talk to other people, if you wanted.
Got it?
K so being on sports teams growing up, I know how to pull a prank or two. We, as girls do, formed tight groups on the floor. Well in my group we had some party'ers. So every Friday and Saturday night they would be getting ready in the bathroom. It was the place to hang out until they left.
(I had a boyfriend and he drove almost every weekend from Seattle, to see me. So I stuck around the dorm. And being Mormon, I don't drink. So there's not a lot to do in a college town. Especially since I H.A.T.E. taking care of drunk people. Hate it!)
So one evening my roommate, Amy was giving me some grief for being lazy. (I slept ALOT.) Well she really started getting at me. I told her to stop and I would try and be better. She did. I told her I would get her back. She didn't believe me.
So while she took a shower, I went and got our popcorn bowl (AKA the Biggest bowl ever) and filled it with cold water.
I snuck around the bathroom, to the showers and poured it over her head. (He he HE!)
She screamed like a girl but knew it was deserved.
So this started the cold water wars.
I knew better than to take a shower while they were around so I would wait until they left to go party and I would get my music, clothes, soaps and go have a relax hot shower for a few.
Well one evening they left and I did my thing. I guess they all met in the lobby. And they came back up to our floor. They snuck around the bathroom and got me with water!
Ha ha ha ha All in good fun! I knew it was coming one day. And yes, I screamed like a girl too!
Well that wasn't the worst of it. They took my clothes, robe and anything else that I could cover up with. So I stood in the shower thinking if I should walk out there naked just to spite them, or wait for pitty.
I'm not one for pitty.
But I'm also not one to flash my hoo hoos in front of my floormates and their boy toys!
So I took the shower curtain off the hooks, like anyone else in my situation would do!
I go strutting out of the bathroom while everyone is laughing their heads off. They thought I was soooo creative.
So after chatting for a bit with everyone, I realize I'm still in a shower curtain. (I was on the swim team for 6 years, modesty is not a high priority.)
So I go into my room, Amy, my best friend Natalie was in there and a few others.
I said, "You better get out of here so I can dress or you are going to get a REAL show."
They ran out. As Amy rans by me, she pulls the curtain out of my hand and off my body!!
Hahaha so now the whole floor and their cousins, boyfriends, neighbors and brothers get to see my hoo hoos and everything else!
HAHAHA good times!
No harm done.
I'm getting dressed and hear Amy scream at the top of her lungs.
I think, "Great what now?"
I go to see what's going on, after I put on a robe.
Someone is puking in the trash can and Amy is standing there, shocked and grossed out.
I look at what she is so groosed out about.
I guess the cleaning ladies of our floor, don't clean the shower curtains...EVER!!
The curtain on the floor had my body, MY BODY, marks in the mildew!!!
Just my body marks. You could see my outline!!
I ran into the bathroom, throw my robe off and jump in the shower again!
I needed to scrub, scrub and scrub some more. My skin just needed to come off!
I had people bringing in all different kinds of soaps, anti-bacterial, even bleach.
I finally felt clean about a week later and 2 showers a day!
Needless to say, this was one of our best moments on the floor!

Now that is just gross but seriously funny in hindsight! Thank God our cleaning ladies always cleaned the curtains. They were little old grandmothers to us all and made sure not a square inch went untouched. I think, in part, b/c they liked chatting with us all while the worked so the took their time. it sad I kinda miss their smiling faces?

Becky said...

I agree what an amazing and entertaining story. Nothing like that ever happened in the dorms at BYU.

EW EW EW EW EW! I used to play pranks on my roommates---but I did things like hide their toothbrush in the laundry detergent...nothing involving mildew!

And also--I just got back from Shelle's. Love all your questions-you crack me up! And ew---changing a diaper in the kitchen?! That's definitely wrong.

And not to be super personal and all---but good luck with your appointments and fertility pills and such!
