Charlie covering his ears
Two annoying girls moved into the apartment above me.
I'm forced to hear every dumb thing they say.
These are my letters to them.


“I can’t believe I checked out a homeless guy and even thought about giving him a dollar!” The cup I was holding HAD COFFEE IN IT!

    First comment!

  2. Sarah says:

    on the bright side, she checked you out.

  3. Sarah Dani says:

    You should have taken her dollar!

  4. Laura says:

    Maybe if you shaved your beard…

  5. Ravyn says:

    That encounter must have been better than a celebrity sighting. Then again that’s common for you.

  6. Haley says:

    at least she checked you out…?

  7. Stephanie says:

    I’m pretty sure he was being a little FUNNY, guys. They know he’s not homeless, and they know his name: Hairy Guy.

    • Stephanie says:

      Hmm, maybe I should have said “girls”. I just noticed all your names aren’t exactly guy names. :P

  8. Chelsea says:

    They thought you were homeless? Ouch! & why does that make her feel bad??

  9. Charlie McDowell says:

    I condition my beard. What more do they want?

  10. Jenna says:

    Polished nails.

  11. Jacky Faber: Midshipman, Fine Lady, and Lily of the West says:

    Lol. Omg, I’m thinking they may be sniffing something if they still don’t know you live in the same apartment complex.

  12. Alessandra says:

    Wait, do they think you are someone else every time they see you? I am so confused…

  13. James says:

    Personally I would take the dollar and let them think I’m homeless. It could lead to some interesting happenstances.

  14. Izzy says:

    Very nice post for my birthday :) heehee

  15. TJ says:

    I’m sure you make a lovely homeless guy. I mean, I’d check you out…

  16. Kendall says:

    I would like you to know my sister introduced me to this sight, and i just spent an hour reading every entry. You have made my day, and possible my month. Thank you.

  17. Alana says:

    Well at least she thinks you’re attractive…

  18. Sarah says:

    ahahaha Was it actually you?

  19. ASchmalz says:

    love it

  20. Madison says:

    What kind of coffee? D:

  21. Lilly says:

    Lilly here. Charlie’s older sis. I usually read his posts on facebook, so this website comment thingy is new to me. Charlie said the cool people comment here. He said you write poems and like Sun chips. Is that true? And Charl, the beard is getting really long.

    • TaylorDanielle! says:

      Yeah we are the cool kids, if I may say so myself(:
      I love sunchips, and occasionally write little poems, but Alicia is the best, she writes one for like every post. But from what I hear she is a bit behind.

      • Charlie McDowell says:

        Everyone welcome my sister, Lilly to the website message board! I told her how cool all of you are, so please don’t let me down. Alicia, where’s the poem???

      • Taylor D says:

        Alicia said she’s been really busy so take it easy on her, I’m sure she’ll post one soon.

      • Alicia says:

        Hey Lilly! I’m Alicia. I write the poems and I choked on my SunChips from laughing at the comments on here one time. I guess that explains it all. (And I have been really busy lately, so sorry that the poems aren’t up right away!) Anyway…today’s poem is right here, Charlie! Hope you like our little “family” we have here, Lilly!

        The girls thought Charlie was homeless and wierd,
        But they only thought that because of his beard.
        From what we’ve heard from his sister, his beard is quite long,
        So that’s probably why the girls percieved him all wrong.
        Yet one of the girls was checking Charlie out!
        ‘Till she saw his cup and her mind filled with doubt.
        On another note, we all welcome Lilly here today!
        I hope she likes our community and remarks that we say.
        It’s where comments are written that can make everyone smile,
        So break out the SunChips and stick around for a while!

      • Cassie says:

        Alicia, that was fantastic. I would have choked on my tortilla chips but I remembered to swallow before reading the comments ;) Then I nearly choked anyway ^.^ Your poems are quite brilliant!

      • Taylor says:

        Amazing poem Alicia!

      • Sammi =] says:

        I love your poem Alicia!

        And i love sunchips. Althought the only thing I ever choked on while reading this is Chinese food. It’s not as cool. :(

    • Taylor D says:

      Lilly you’re very welcome here!

    • Sara says:

      Welcome to the website family, Lilly! Do you ever go to Charlie’s and listen to the girls? Are they really this dumb?

    • J-Lo says:

      Hey! Welcome to the family!

    • Sarah says:

      Now some one in the comment family is actually family!

    • Elin says:

      Lilly! what a pretty name! so glad Charlie told you to come hang out with us! were definatly the coolest kids to read his posts.(and the best lookin to )

    • Liz says:

      Welcome, welcome! And we do get some awesome poems here. Fo sho.

    • Trina says:

      Hey Lilly!!

      We sure are the awesome super cool kids and YES, we eat SunChips. Alicia is our poem writer and she totally ROCKS at it. Really hope you enjoy being part of our family!! :)

  22. cinnamon says:

    The delightfully blonde girls upstairs
    Have mistaken Charlie for one of those creepy guys who hang out in the shadows of fairs
    They nearly put a coin (the colour of toffee)
    Into his cup (how were they to know it was full of coffee?)
    Perhaps if he were to shave off his beard
    That would stop these occurrences that are down right weird.

    Thought I’d help Alicia out.

  23. Dakota says:

    Long time reader, first time commenter. Don’t worry, I already know you all are awesome. I’ve been creeping the GAM comments like Charlie creeps on the girls. Keep up the awesome work, Charlie. :)

    • Charlie McDowell says:

      Thanks. And very cool name.

      • Dakota says:

        Thanks! I always thought it was more of a boy’s name, so thank you. :) If Alicia is ever unable to post a poem, I could write some. I’ve been writing them since I was 5. :)

  24. Sarah says:

    How about a haiku instead of a regular poem?
    They think you’re homeless,
    But you nearly share a home,
    Would it help to shave?

  25. On The Bright Side... says:

    At least they’re somewhat generous.

  26. Antoinette says:

    I just love this post, got me through a very busy work day :)

  27. Pam says:

    Dahlin’ you are hilarious!

  28. Manda says:

    Alright, had to make a comment. There are some days where I think “There’s no way these girls can stay something that stupid.” Then I talk to my sister, love her, but I worry.

  29. Jess says:

    As a long time reader and first time commenter, all I can say is:
    At least she didn’t put the dollar in your coffee.

  30. Riz Laynes says:

    I feel like it’s borderline impossible for these girls to be THAT stupid.

  31. Ellie says:

    Big welcome to Lilly and Dakota!
    So they butt-dial a guy while hokking up with a guy, are popping another guys back zits, whining about celebrating one person on v-day, worried a boyfriend is gay, are being followed by “mexican prostitutes”, and are now checking out a “homeless” charlie.
    anyone else keeping a count?

    • Sara says:

      I think it’s kind of like trying to count the stars, there’s so many you get confused and have to just keep starting over and really it’s just hopeless.

  32. Jillian says:

    Why are they checking out homeless looking people? This is out of character for them.

  33. Elizabeth says:

    I think I’d die laughing if they started referring to Charlie as “That homeless guy that lives downstairs.” XD

  34. Leine says:

    Long time lurker, first time poster!

    I hope it’s not too late to join this odd little family, you seem to have a thing going…

  35. christymarie says:

    i love this site more than i like when customers leave their cake when they finally leave the restaurant i work at. (and that’s a lot because tonight a basketball team left a third of a cosco cake)

  36. Samantha says:

    I’ve always wanted to comment because I think your little family that’s going on here is completely awesome. This website is one of those things where you don’t know about it and then bang, you don’t remember daily life without it! Charlie, you rock, beard and all.

  37. Lilly says:

    Wow! Thanks for the warm welcome guys. Alicia your poem is amazing! Now I see why Charlie loves you all so much :) I’ll stop by more often…

  38. Lacey says:

    Lilly you should definitely stop by regularly. I’m finally giving in to the posting of the commentness. I’ve been reading this site forever, and like someone else here said, I can’t remember life without it. And today seems to be as good as any to join the “GAM family”, so long as there are no objections.

    And Alicia, I have always HATED poetry until I started reading yours. Nicely done! :)

  39. kari says:

    Oh charlie yooh so funneh x’D
    also, it’s been a really long time since i commented last.. HOLA ALL!

    • Elin says:

      AH! my moms name is kari. i almost freaked out…..but then you said hola,and i knew my mom wasn’t cool enough to say that

  40. Jessie says:

    Your website is totally awesome. Just needed to say that. I’ve spent all my spare time in the last few weeks reading all your posts, and I must say… I’ve been a very unproductive person because of it. But reading DGAM makes my day every time I visit! Keep up the stalking.

    -Long time reader, first time commenter

  41. sarah says:

    absolutely love this site, definitely making my recovery all the better. I was worried that i was going to sit home and be completely bored but not with charlie and all the commentators. Thanks everybody!

  42. Lonely Girl says:

    Definitely made my day, as always. Perhaps you should carry an empty cup just so they will give you money.

  43. GinnyPotter says:

    I ran out of sunchips!!!!! Someone mail me a bag quick!!!! lol

  44. Bettina says:

    Thanks so much!!! I loved that ;P You made my day.

  45. Gracelyn says:

    They must honestly think you’re a different person every single time they see you. How many different people have you been so far? Like, 20? :)

  46. Grr. I'm Angry Regularly. says:

    Still frustrating to me that since Alicia has been doing the poetry here for awhile, other people seem to think it’s okay to go along and do the same thing. Not to be rude, but several of you look pretty pathetic with the fact you resort to copying others.

    • Lock says:

      No one else is allowed to write poetry, EVER!
      Now that that’s been cleared up. Harvest Cheddar, anyone?

  47. Brett says:

    I’ve never had SunChips.

  48. Trina says:

    Ahahahahaha, that’s hilarious!! Sorry, Charlie, but it is. Awww, well she DID check you out AND she almost gave you a dollar!!!

  49. LV Bags says:

    Awesome publish buddy i must bookmark your feed….

  50. Eva says:

    Hi, this is my first time commenting, but I’ve been reading your letters for awhile. Charlie, you are hilarious. And plus, this means at least he *did* check you out…

  51. You have numerous nice points here. I did a research on the subject and discovered nearly all peoples will agree with you….

  52. Sammi =] says:

    If only she HAD given you the dollar. A gift from one of the girls?

    You could have put it in a frame on your wall.

    And a little note at the bottom of my post:
    Welcome to the official site Lilly! And yes. Alicia’s poems are wonderful. And if i say so myself, we are the coolest people! Also, sunchips are yummy. But the only thing I’ve choked on cuz of this site is Chinese food. Not as cool. :(

  53. Cameron says:

    haha, hilarious post. I <3 DGAM!! charlie, you are amazing.:D. actually this is my 1st time commmenting… so, Hello everyone! hehe

  54. RydonJoncer says:

    Hey Charlie, I think you should grow out your beard, and wear a belt around it, and see if they recognize you as Dumbledore from that one ‘floppy’ book!

  55. I enjoy your blog. . very nice colors & base . Did you produce this website yourself or did you lease someone to do it for you? Plz answer back as I ‘m looking to create my own web log and would like to know wheere atomic number 92 got this from. than…
