Green Room Tales

As theatre majors, we spend excessive amounts of time in Moore Hall.  Because of this we have a room with sofas to sleep on, a fridge to keep food for the late night rehearsals and times we can't go home after class and before rehearsal, a sink and a tiny microwave.

This is all well and good, but some people take advantage at that.  For example, there is always dishes in the sink, old take out in the fridge and I do not want to know what happens on some of those sofas.

We all left over break and those who had food in the fridge before break left it there.  It didn't help that the fridge got turned off during break too.  With the food still in it.  Ew! Ew! Ew!!!!!  Needless to say, the fridge smelled awful when we came back.  And it would emanate from the fridge and permeate the whole fricking room.  Gah! So I bought baking soda to put in there and it's been working and Jessica cleaned out the remaining food this morning.

But we come to the worst that we can't really figure out.  The sink.  Oh, God, it smells terrible.  Isaac braved the sink to pitch every thing in it.  And then he Febreezed and Lysoled the entire room and it almost made it worse.

Bottom line, this is a community area, please take care of your food!!  It's not fair to the rest of us!

Ewww ew ew ew! I would suggest pouring some bleach down the drain of the sink as well. I've found that is the only thing that works to eliminate the smells from my sink at home whenever someone doesn't rinse their food out of the compactor all the way.
It would be nice if there was some way that you could revoke the Green Room privileges of people who abuse it. Like, figure out a way to determine whose dishes they are or require that all food be labeled and then kick the butts of the people who aren't cleaning up after themselves. Although, sometimes that doesn't even work. I've basically given on up my roommates. They leave messes all the time, but they don't care because they aren't home all day to deal with them. It makes me so frustrated!
