SYAC - Passive Aggressive by TomPreston SYAC - Passive Aggressive by TomPreston
Read the next episode of “So, You’re A Cartoonist?” here: [link]


I had a really difficult time with my roommates during my first semester of Art College. With the guy on the bunk below me "rocking the boat" and with the partying, smoking, drugs, and music... there really wasn't any good place for me to go to sleep...

Except the bathroom.

Of course today this would NEVER happen and I would give them what for... but back then I was very shy and quiet. I fought back by being passive aggressive. "If they're going to inconvenience me, I'm going to inconvenience them! No one's using the bathroom without MY say so!"

This is a follow up comic to the original "Midnight Mystery" which can be viewed here: [link]

Luckily, the college I'm going to ain't gonna be like this. It's just like school. Go to it, and come back home.

Completely understood what you meant by "rocking the boat"..ick..I feel soooo sorry for you :( Having to deal with such a horrid roommate like that who didn't even consider their other roommates. I slept in the tub once too XD Just because I was struggling to sleep, and I had a massive headache and felt like I was going to be sick. The tub was the coldest thing there was so yeah.

If my roommate was rocking the boat in the bunk below me I would take out my little flash light shine it in both there faces and say "IF YOU LITTLE *BLEEPS* WANNA DO THAT GO SOMEWHERE ELSE! i AM TRYING TO *BLEEPIN* SLEEP!"

No one should mess with me when I'm tired. I'll go off!

Oh I'd totally do the same thing. Except I'd get up, take a photo of the two, and use it as blackmail...or I'd just tell the other person that the roommate has AIDS.
