housemate just burst into my room
him: its not funny
me: excuse me
him: james im not KIDDING
he looks very worried. he hands me this torn piece of a card
him: please tell me you did it
him: i just opened the cutlery drawer and this was on top
me: i got a spoon out the drawer ten minutes ago and there was nothing..?
him: SO DID I
it's 10 o'clock at night. nobody else is in the flat. the door is locked. the windows are closed. we are fuckin TERRIFIED
this wouldnt be quite as harrowing were it not for the fact we have a persistent ghost problem already and the implications of ""poo chunk""
@envgen poo chunk
@revenant who or what is POO CHUNK
@envgen i dunno, but it's yours, and i love it
@envgen ....ghost problem?
@envgen question is which of the people pictured is the ghost
@Linda mr poo chunk actually looks a bit like the ghost i saw
@envgen hang on when did you see a ghost
@envgen i know youve had ghosts but i didnt know you saw one
@Linda yeah i seen him twice
was he just like in the hallway
@Linda yeah. a little fuzzy stocky bald man standing right there in the hall when i went to the toilet. all grainy like a bad VHS. turned on the light and he was gone
@envgen awfully rude of you to turn on the light then
@Linda i needed a wee and he was blocking the way
@envgen poo chunk was on the way to the bathroom too and you had to turn on the light and scare him off
@envgen you have a pootergeist! 👻
@envgen oh what D:
No way that your housemate is making you a freaking bad joke?!
@DarckCrystale absolutely no way, he's terrified
@envgen are you sure your roommate isn't fucking with you?
@sexybenfranklin 100% sure
@envgen only thing I can suggest is to take out the drawer and look to make sure nothing got stuck above it. Maybe it was there got jostled and then fell into the drawer.
@envgen the font looks like century gothic or a clone thereof
@envgen my guess is, esp. given the stains, it was stuck to the bottom of the drawer above or the cabinet inside and just happened to finally come loose?
@theoutrider weve been here six months and there wasnt a family living here before us so it would have been there a minimum of 18 months. why is it torn in half? if the text is on the 'wrong' side, then what was on the other side? poo chunk
@envgen "poo chunk" is pretty fantastic
@theoutrider does he mean 'love from your poo chunk' in which case, a lot of questions. how do you get a nickname like that from your partner. what is their relationship like. lots to read into that. or, perhaps more harrowingly, does he mean 'i love your poo chunk', in which case,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
@envgen @theoutrider I can answer some of that! My guess is it's a card from one of those online card places. They do "cards" that are notebooks or a box containing chocolate or a pair of socks. The message is printed on the inside of the front of the card instead of in the usual place because that's the only free space.
So that explains the weird printing and the torn edge.
@envgen ...hey uh it's too early for halloween wtf
@envgen prob stuck above the drawer for as long as you lived there yeah? That's what I'd figure anyway :)
@dirething we considered that but we've been here 6 months and the people here before us werent a family, and the minimum tenancy is 1 year so if thats the case it was stuck there minimum a year and a half
@envgen Wow so weird! I mean maybe? Cool mystery at least :)
@envgen at first I misread this and thought your cutlery were also gone with this left in their place which was even more terrifying.
