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.


“The cleaning lady canceled! Okay, go to Youtube and look for a video on how to use a washing machine.” Remember LOTS of bleach.

  2. anon says:

    hahahahahaha, poor charlie.. he is below them.. he needs to order a cleaning lady NOW!!!

  3. AmyD says:

    rofl I know a guy who couldn’t figure out why his clothes wouldn’t come clean, so when he asked us about it, he was STUNNED to find out you have to put detergent in the washer with the clothes………obviously these girls have never done anything for themselves!

  4. Sara says:

    Charlie, hide anything you don’t want to get wet…

  5. LovelyLauren says:

    They don’t know how to wash their own clothes? As stupid as they are, they must be magic to have lived this long knowing nothing…

    • KimeeFace says:

      Not magic, but money. Cleaning ladies do it for them so they don’t need to know how to do it.
      I’m curious as to how their clothing will come out when they try washing it themselves.

  6. Lala says:

    Now in their defense washing clothes is semi-difficult if you’ve never done it before.
    I only learned last year.

  7. andrea says:

    Well they didn’t go to college! I bet these girls are famous or related to someone famous. Like Charlie! lol

  8. TaylorDanielle! says:

    Wowwww. I’ve been doing my own laundry since I was seven.
    So SMH, smh.

    • notforyou says:


      its not that hard.
      you dump it in the washer, put in a cup of detergent, and press the button (after you close the top)
      then when it stops or alerts you that the cycle is finished
      you put it in the dryer (or hang them on a close line)
      if this is too complicated, you can bring you close to the dry cleaners

  9. TaylorDanielle! says:

    But a perfect GAM to read before my soccer game(:

  10. says:

    I want a cleaning lady, it’s pretty much my life goal to be well enough off to not have to pick up my dirty clothes off the floor or know where my vacuum is.

  11. Elin says:

    Hey on the bright side, at least they will learn how.

  12. Alyssa says:

    Bleach… you mean on their hair? Because I’ll bet they have lots of practice at that; at least, it would explain their lack of brain cells. :D

  13. Sarah says:

    Charlie, I feel like I’ve been neglecting this site, I have SO much to do

  14. DoraTonks10 says:

    Really? There is something seriously wrong here. They honestly can’t do their own laundry? I’m not going to lie this has made my rainy day a lot better. :D

  15. Alessandra says:

    I’m really confused how these two girls even survive a day…

  16. Angelica says:

    Please tell me this one was made up!!

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

    This is plainly sad. And if they did look up a video, they probably wouldn’t pick up on the sarcasm that would undoubtedly be in it. X.x

  18. Deirdre says:

    I bet the cleaning lady cancelled because she knew that they would do something stupid like this, and she wanted to see them do it.

  19. On The Bright Side... says:

    At least their poor cleaning lady won’t have to deal with their stupidity.

  20. Elizabeth says:

    These girls make me feel very intelligent.
    Have they worked a day in their lives?

    • Prosopagnosia says:

      That’s exactly what I was wondering… I mean, who in their right mind would ever hire these empty-headed animal food trough wipers? (five imaginary points to anyone who knows where that’s from)

      • Jessica says:

        Monty Python :)

      • Prosopagnosia says:

        CORRECT! FIVE POINTS TO GRYFFINDOR *cough* *cough I mean ummm JESSICA!

      • KimeeFace says:

        I had no idea where that was from, but my friend who was reading over my shoulder yelled Monty Python into my ear. She’s rather dissapointed that someone beat her to the five imaginary points.

    • Manda says:

      I’ve never technically worked a day in my life, yet I can still manage to cook and clean for myself.

  21. Jessica says:

    …I don’t even know what to say to this. That’s just so so so sad. How did they manage to get this far in life??

  22. Bex says:

    Im speechless. Even if they have a very complicated washing machine Im sure they could manage handwashing…. couldn’t they?????

    • Miles says:

      Truthfully… While I’ve done my own laundry for about 10 years, hand washing clothes still throws me off… I feel like I’m never getting the clothes clean enough.

  23. cupcake ninja says:

    Charlie, you might want to invest in a boat. By the way, I’m eating sunchips right now. They’re yummy.

  24. Trina says:

    Goodness GRACIOUS… what exactly do they DO in a day?!?

  25. Nandi says:

    Hey everyone! First-time commenter here. I just have to say that this one tops all of the GAM moments this week. It seriously made my day XD

  26. Jillian says:

    How did they do laundry in college?
    Oh, right.. There’s no way they got into college.

  27. cygnus says:

    Wait! The pic of Pinkman was in a laundry room… Please tell me that you will be able to go in and witness this debacle. This moment is what portable web cams were designed for!!!!!

  28. Chelsea says:

    Wow.. Just wow…. That’s kinda sad/pathetic.

  29. KelseyM says:

    Forget google taking over the world, how would people function without youtube to teach them how to do simple everyday things like laundry? Or washing dishes? Or brushing their teeth??

  30. Wait is this where I type in my name? says:

    Oh. Dear.

  31. Becca says:

    Is it wrong that I feel it’s good they are atleast learning how to wash their own clothes?

  32. Leila says:

    you know, my first room mate in college had no idea how to do her laundry. apparently, her mom did it for her and never taught her. but she was 18.
    how old are these girls?

  33. Tobia says:

    i recomend investing in a few umbrellas, charlie

  34. Lock says:

    Youtube taught me Discrete Math and Calculus. Don’t underestimate the power of Youtube.
    In first year, loads of freshmen had to ‘research’ the do’s and don’ts of the washing machine.

  35. Sara says:

    My washer has the instructions on the lid…so maybe they can follow pictures?

  36. Michelle says:

    Has anyone else noticed that both Charlie and Alicia are missing?

    Wow. O.o These girls are the reason that I’ve lost hope in most of the human race.

  37. Taylor says:

    oh wow…although I had a DGAM moment today. I waved my hand in front of a sink faucet for a minute before I realized it wasn’t motion sensitive :/

  38. sheila says:

    Charlie, I think your apartment is about to get flooded… Better call your real estate agent and start looking for a new place to live!

  39. Leah says:

    Oh my. I’ve been doing my own laundry since I was seven!!
    This post made my day :)

  40. Lilly says:

    Charl, remember when mom went on strike and we had to learn how to do our own laundry? Pre you-tube! We’re so smart.

    Hi guys :)

    • J-Lo says:

      What did you do to make your mom go on strike?? That sounds pretty serious!

    • KimeeFace says:

      I had to llearn to do my laundry by hand when I was five.
      But then again, that was cause the washing machine broke and my family was living in Mexico. My mom never went on strike, but she never had time to wash clothes so me and my dad had to learn.

    • Sara says:

      Hi Lilly! I would also like to know what you did to make your mom go on strike? Did Charlie forget to take some gross insect out of his pocket?

      • Charlie McDowell says:

        Ya, Lil, why don’t you go ahead and tell everyone why mom went on strike!

      • Cygnus says:

        OOOoooo Lilly, the quick reply from your Bro seems to indicate that you were probably the culprit… So do tell. We are all ears, er, em, I mean we are all eyes. (Leaning toward screen in anticipation of fun silly hijinks)

        — on another note, my comp does not know how to spell check hijinks. Didn’t my comp watch Scooby Doo as a little processor?

  41. Ash says:

    Oh wow, I have been laid up for a week with a busted knee… this website has kept me sane with silly things like this. Can’t wait to keep reading in the upcoming weeks up bedrest!!

  42. alexaluvs says:

    Ughhh Charlie i hope the washing machine isn’t in their apartment but if it is i recommend moving all you electronics and valuables out

  43. Sam =] says:

    Ok so I posted this on another thing by mistake but I figured you don’t read old things anymore for comments so I figured I’d say it again:

    Hi Charlie!!!I haven’t been on the site in forever. Do you remember me?
    I was the one that asked you to marry me? Haha well I remember the thing about how I didn’t even get you a hotpocket and I figured I might as well give you a waffle. Here (>••)>#Anyways the reason I haven’t been on is my grandpa on my dads side died so it’s been stressful. I read all your posts that I missed and can honestly say they made my life a little bit more cheerful. thanks!
    I hope you remember me! And I hope I’m part of the ‘family’ still.

    • Charlie McDowell says:

      Of course I remember you and I’m very sorry for your loss. Hope you’re feeling better and welcome back!

      • Sam =] says:

        Thanks Charlie. :)

        I’m glad to be back.

        And yah my gramp was old and had some health problems so… :(

  44. J-Lo says:

    That’s just sad! I’ve known how to wash clothes since I was 10! How can you live on your own and not know this?

  45. Lily Luna Potter says:

    Is anyone else wondering what has happened to Alicia? She hasn’t posted in a while!

  46. Chloé says:

    Oh no! The world is ending! The cleaning lady CANCELED!! What else could she possibly have to do?

  47. Living on a Prayer says:

    I just moved into a new apartment. I had to go online to look up how to clean a toilet. But I did the laundry without any help, online or otherwise. Thought that this was relevant to this GAM post.

  48. jake says:

    You know, these girls remind me of a tiger released into the wild after being in a zoo for most of its natural life. The other tigers had eviscerated it two days later. No one knows why. Yet that image inspired me to compose a little parody of a well known song in their honor:

    What do these girls dream of when they take a little D-GAM snooze?
    do they dream of owning versachi? Or charlie in his pink stretchy suit?
    well don’t you worry your pretty airy heads,
    were gonna get your laundry done and then tame your messy beds
    and then we’re gonna find an old can o spam
    and then we’re onna give it to a frightened homeless man

    (Improve Instrumental using only the word SPAM And Man as Text)

    unless you try to wash your red designer sneakers
    then we’re shit out of luck.

  49. AndreaJeanne says:

    I’m kind of surprised that they don’t just buy new clothes instead of trying to figure out the washing machine.

  50. The Alley Cat says:

    Sad to say, this sounds a little like my friend and I. Though in our defense, the washer was broken. But we did manage to do it, sans YouTube.

  51. Jamie Lynn says:

    I honestly think a few of my brain cells just died.

  52. Emma Clayton says:

    I have created a tumblr all about you. Since I began this tonight, there are only 8 photos and 1 gif that I created of you spinning. I expect everyone who loves you to follow me.

  53. Ellin says:

    You know how Voldemort went beyond the realm of “usual evil”? I’d say this one goes beyond the realm of “usual stupidity”. Yikes.

  54. hellothereI'mTori! says:

    ..I’ve been doing my own laundry since I was 8… and I’m only 15… is it sad that I feel really smart right now?

  55. Eileen says:
    this video is very informative AND they have great accents. Win-win.

  56. Alicia says:

    The cleaning lady decided not to show,
    And the girls don’t know how to wash their own clothes.
    They quickly go to Youtube because this is urgent,
    Knowing them, they’ll forget to use detergent.
    I wonder if they can even turn it on?
    They can’t do a thing with their cleaning lady gone.

  57. Denny says:

    THIS IS YOUR CHANCE CHARLIE!! buy an apron and rubber gloves and get up there NOW!

  58. poilkjmnb says:

    i thought cancelled had to ‘l’s ?

    • Antoinette says:

      Canceled and Cancelled are both right, one is American and one is British. Or something like that. I write it both ways.

  59. Lonely Girl says:

    Oi vey! I’ve known how to operate a washing machine from a very young age. And they’re how old?

  60. Bridget says:

    To think that my sister and I learned how to do laundry because we WANTED to do it ourselves. Ah well, there is a firstfor everything, and this will be thweir first load of laundry.

    Oh, and Charlie, if Lilly doesn’t tell us why your mom went on strike, will you?

    • Catherine says:

      hah, i did too. i was sick of my mom getting into my room to collect my laundry and folding it all funny :’D

      • Bridget says:

        Yeah, our mom would put the wrong clothes in our closets, and then my sister would yell at me for wearing her clothes. So we just gave up and washed our own. I wonder if it was a plot by our mothers?

  61. GinnyPotter says:

    hahahaha I’m considering putting a fake tutorial on YouTube about how to use a washing machine. Step 1: put the entire bottle of detergent in. Step 2: Place any valuable electronics is washing machine. :) lol

  62. Kelsey says:

    I’m not allowed to do the dishes. I break things.

  63. Ellie says:

    Just saw Never Say Never :-D

  64. Ellie says:

    Worst part was i sat next to a “belieber”. Worst 2 hours of my life.

  65. Sammi =] says:

    Just a post I figured I’d put. It’s worthless but I added an extra m and i to my name so people know I’m a girl. :)

    Sorry for the inconvenience.

  66. Lord Voldemort says:

    Whatever you do, DONT GET TRAPPED INSIDE THE MACHINE! I shall never make that mistake again *shivers*

  67. Lizzzzzz says:

    This made my whole weekend. I was at the big Debate tournament of the year all weekend with no internet access, and now that im home having suffered a terrible defeat, (I went down in the 2nd elimination round :( ) This actually made me smile a lot. So thank you Charlie :)

  68. Amy G says:

    The only thing I thought about when I saw this, was that Charlie missed his chance to make a Youtube video on how to do laundry.

    It would be a perfect opportunity to lead them in the “right” direction…

  69. Lucie says:

    I guess be ready to hear complaints about clothes being shrunk?

  70. I desire to thank you for this great read! ! I definitely enjoying every little bit of it I have you bookmarked to check out new stuff you post….

  71. This position has aided me to understand my want. It has some contingents that. are easy to understand. It too has fantabulous tops ….

  72. Edith says:

    I appreciate your drive, and so I will share a very closely guarded formula with you: after a lot of failures at generating income online, I’ve found a technique that made me over $15,000.00 in only one day. I am not kidding. I have revealed all in this article (including pictures). I’m taking my site off the net later today. This development is just too potent.

  73. Another Title…

    Wavi Action, Motion Sensor Latest from ASUS…

  74. Kaycees Blog says:

    really agreed with what they were saying and thought I would share it with you all…

    was surprised by this so thought I would share it with my readers…

  75. qula says:

    wow. i wonder if they have any brains.
