Chicago to Boston to Chicago

This is how Paulie communicates with the tenants of the building. Love notes taped on the front door, affectionately scrawled sideways on lined notebook paper. Usually they are written in pen and then certain words are underlined with red marker so we know that if he was saying this to our face, these are the parts he would yell. Then afterthoughts are written on the top or the side, also in red marker; if in person he would have left and then come back ten seconds later to say these things, which he always does. Before any conversation with Paulie really ends he will have left and come back three or four times.

The one on the far left says:

(On top in red marker) Stop doing this 3rd time.

(In pen) Who (underlined red marker) is the friggin idiot (underlined red marker) who put four bags of garbage out at 7:45 this morning the garbage goes by at 6:30. I had to give someone $20 to take the garbage to another street.

That 'friggin idiot' is my other roommate. I hope we can settle this over spinach lasagna and some of the good bread.
