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 know life’s hard in like other countries, but don’t you think LA is the hardest place to live?” Totally, let’s move to Japan.

    oh, best one yet.
    bless these girls.

  2. Kayli says:

    this takes things to a new level haha.
    someone needs to put these girls on “you’re cut off.”

  3. Claire says:

    Their political incorrectness continues to astound me. I wonder if they even finished high school…

  4. Kamella says:

    Do they even know what really happened in Japan, Charlie?

    I live in LA county… It’s pretty easy here…

  5. Derek says:

    They’re gonna do great things some day

  6. Deirdre says:

    If they think living in LA is hard, wait until they try living life.

  7. Ann C. says:

    I heard Libya is a fantastic place! We should send the girls on a vacation to Tripoli!

  8. GAM Defender says:

    Well, just because they’re not cultured or globally aware doesn’t mean they’re horrible people or meant anything terrible by it.

    • Trippetta says:

      No one is saying they are terrible people. Simply stupid and culturally ignorant.

    • Chelsea says:


      • Chelsea says:

        Stupid touch screen. Ignore that….

        Anyways, look, I’m not trying to be mean, but it sure seems like you’re trying to kill this website by sucking all the fun out of it. It’s fine for everyone to have opinions, but some opinions are better off not shared in certain places. It’s like how a Justin Bieber concert would be a bad place to rant about how much you hate him.

      • Merphistopheles says:

        Bad Example a Justin Bieber concert is the perfect place to rant about how much you hate him.
        It’s like going around popping the balloon of a disabled homeless guy holding a dying puppy; fun but way too easy.

      • Chelsea says:

        It’s a bad place to rant about him in the sense that *some* people will freak out and be insane.

      • Mephistopheles says:

        Yes and…

      • Chelsea says:

        And I was bullied last year at school by a few people, *including one of my friends*, just because I don’t like Justin Bieber. Imagine being bullyed times 100 for not liking him, & you’ve got yourself at a Justin Bieber concert.

        Anyways, I just find GAM Defender kind of annoying; it’s like he’s trying to suck all the fun out of this website.

      • Mephistopheles says:

        Just saying bad example.

        Sorry for the lack of tact.

      • Hannibal lecter says:

        I agree with Chelsea. She was simply saying it would be impractical, and self-alienating to do such a thing. Plus, Mephistopheles’ argument was crude, and not well thought out.

    • Amber says:

      Lol, I liked the GAM Defender, I think it’s funny. After reading the post I always scroll through the comments just to see what kind of fight she’s putting up.

      • Trippetta says:

        I’m pretty sure the GAM defender is actually male:
        “GAM Defender says:
        March 17, 2011 at 2:40 pm
        They’re the kind of girls that go all out when they do things, accessories won’t do. Why would they give a mere hand job when they’re to type to go all out and give a blow job? I wish my girlfriend was like that…”

      • Cygnus says:

        I like the Defender too. It is like the 2 old guys up in the wings cracking jokes during the Muppet Show. Every point needs a counter point. It makes the music better, more complex and more interesting. I applaud you without always agreeing with you Defender.

      • Charlotte says:

        i <333333 the muppet show!

      • Kamella says:

        I love GAM defender. It reminds me that they have a bit of hope.

      • GAM Defender says:

        And I appreciate the love. I’ll be signing autographs out back after the show…

    • GAM Defender says:

      I’m so sorry not just posting “omg dey so stoopid!!!11!” is such a burden on your happiness. My condolences.

      • GAM Defender says:

        And just to clarify, I’m just joking around. I don’t mean to bring down the spirit of the site or be hostile towards anyone. It’s all fun and games.

      • Cygnus says:

        I always figured you were doing it with tongue planted firmly in cheek. But your arguments are usually both rational and possible. I like that.

      • Tegan says:

        I look forward to reading your comments. They’re different and make things even more interesting.

      • Maeve says:

        Oh, I kinda like the comments that you put. Like Kamella said, it shows that there may be some hope for them. So please, go on commenting, because as far as those of us who like your comments, you are doing some good to the site by showing that not everyone is a hopeless case.

        (but it is still a little fun to make fun of them every once in a while:)

  10. Pie of Chocolate says:

    I say we take them on vacation through Morocco, Tunisia, Egypt, Sudan, and Bahrain. Tell them it’s great for tanning.

  11. Olly says:

    don’t you sometimes think that these girls are part of some comedy show? to me there is no other way to explain quotes like this…

  12. GinnyPotter says:

    Yes because parties every night, a new boyfriend every week, and living in their own apartment is waayyyyy harder than being in a mud hut in Haiti… they should be on Surviver!!

    • angel says:

      Oh I would love to watch them on survivor. Although their tribemates would probably just get pissed off at them (OMG, is this where we are going to do our number one and twos?!?!?! Ummm, you mean I need to roll in the mud so that we can win those things?) and vote them off the first tribal council. LOL.

  13. Sonia says:

    I know they’re dumb and all but this REALLY makes me mad,
    Japan is in turmoil right now… thank god my relatives are safe.

  14. Levi says:

    I’m sorry Charlie, but its a little to early to Japan jokes.. I know it was meant in jest but still.. a little early

    • Levi says:

      to make*

    • Chelsea says:

      He’s got a legit point there, but I totally agree.

    • Gina says:

      He’s not making a joke about what is happening to Japan. It was a sarcastic response to the ignorance and selfishness of the girls.

      • Moomintroll says:

        Agreed. Plus, it’s never too early if you don’t mind the hatewave :P

      • Chelsea says:

        You are so right. It would be great right now if we were all over there, and had been for the earthquake. Well, you know, if we frickin’ survived it!!

        Charlie had a legit point–he’s saying that LA is heaven compared to the death, turmoil, everything going on over in Japan right now. I wish y’all had been there for the earthquake and the aftermath, as long as you were lucky enough to survive. Then I would want to see you come back to wherever you are now and say how funny it is that people are dying and that their county is in shambles and that they’re at risk of something even more disastrous happenin with the nuclear plants. Because all of that is so hilarious.

        If you truly think that what’s going on in Japan right now is funny, go find a heart.

      • Mephistopheles says:

        I accept most of your point but you do know that the surviving population is facing a disaster worse than Chernobyl.

      • Gina says:

        I think you guys are misunderstanding what I am saying as well. I know that what is going on in Japan right now is worse than Chernobyl, and I in no way think that what is happening is funny. What Charlie was saying and what I am saying is that the GAM are either ignorant and do not know what is going on in Japan, or they are incredibly selfish and think their lives are more difficult in LA than what is going on in Japan right now.

      • Grace says:

        Chelsea, I’m not sure that I really understand your point – are you agreeing with Charlie, or aren’t you? No one ever said that the situation in Japan is funny. In fact, I agree with Gina that Charlie wasn’t trying to make a joke in the slightest; he was definitely using sarcasm to point out the shameless stupidity of the GAM.

    • Hannibal lecter says:

      It was less of a jest, and more of making a point about the clueless girls. The bit about Japan at the end was just to further emphasize the shallow simplemindedness of the girls, while bringing to mind how good all of us really have it.

  15. Alex says:

    You just made my day, Charlie.

  16. The Alley Cat says:

    I think the only time it’s hard to live in LA is when you’re trying to get building permits….

  17. Nicole says:

    This is me praying that I never move into a place with girls like that above me… I wonder if they’ve ever seen the news…

  18. MacKenzie says:

    Oh what I wouldnt do to attempt a sophisticated conversation with these girls, just to see their faces when I use a word more than two syllables long.

    • Hannibal lecter says:

      Haha I agree! Although there are a few longer-than-two-syllable words they would understand like… liposuction, bikini, and genitals. But that’s about all that would be in their range.

  19. Jade says:

    Better yet, ship ’em off to Russia. It’s hard to live there even without a huge catastrophe (Bless the people of Japan <3. I have a few friends over that way myself) like the earthquakes and tsunamis in Japan.

  20. Kayli says:

    in defense of charlie.
    this wasn’t a japan joke.
    he was merely pointing out that the Japenese people fear for the lives of themselves and their loved ones, whilst the girls above him fear for their tan lines.
    i think there’s nothing wrong with this.
    keep up the good eavesdropping charlie :)

  21. Chloé says:

    I vote we send them out there to join the Peace Corps. Maybe they’ll finally learn something other than the latest trend.

  22. Jamie Z. says:

    I hear Haiti’s nice this time of year.

  23. Alessandra says:

    SB is the hardest place to live at the moment. Twp OChem Finals tomorrow (yes on a Saturday), lecture and lab.

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

    Oh my. Well…if they think LA is tough to live, try coming two hours north and living here. It really sucks. X.x
    But I agree, let them move somewhere else (with Charlie of course), like Greenland! Oh what fun conversations Charlie would here there. Lol. :)

  25. Jack West says:

    Tell you what, they wouldn’t survive Christchurch, NZ right now either

  26. Rayne says:

    They wouldn’t survive a day in the woods

  27. Mephistopheles says:

    They’re like two year olds except their serious.

    And have no intention of growing out of it.

  28. Tegan says:

    They livin in LA and their life is all play,
    But where would we be if they moved out today?
    To Japan or to Africa, maybe Haiti they’d go,
    Or to be Sheen’s new goddesses, I don’t even know.
    But we sure would miss them, so I think they should stay,
    Cause reading their quotes can always make our day.

  29. ally says:

    aww…. where is Alicia?
    *misses her poem*

  30. Diana says:

    I like how it’s not even “you should move to Japan” but “let’s move to Japan” so you can still be with them.

    • Taylor says:

      I know I laughed to myself because it seems like it’s kind of a package deal. The girls go, Charlie goes.

      • Hannibal lecter says:

        They arrive at their new home: “WOW there’s like a hairy guy for everywhere!!!!1!1!one11!”

  31. Katchenmeifucan says:

    If these chippies think that things are tough in L.A., they should try finding a decent mani/pedi in Firenze! Like, OMG!, I have to go to Milan for that!

  32. Matt says:

    fighting traffic and keeping up with fashion is way worse then dealing with disentary and AIDS

    • Cygnus says:

      Actually, if you forced me to choose one way of life or the other…. I would rather poo in a hole I dug myself and help the afflicted, than wear Prada and be judged like a show pony.

    • Katchenmeifucan says:

      So true Matt! Fashion is a “Versace Choo Prada” world… (That’s kinda like “dog eat dog.”)

  33. Prosopagnosia says:

    Hey Charlie, you should buy them plane tickets to Libya.

  34. Lonely Girl says:

    They think living in LA is hard? Bless their sweet little innocent hearts…

  35. ILikeYouILoveYou says:

    They wouldn’t make it a day in Madison, WI. Just sayin’.

  36. Matt says:

    why dont you take donations!!

  37. Connor says:

    I just started reading these. It’s sad how many people I know who actually think like these girls…

  38. Alex says:

    Is it just me or is it strange that Charlie hasn’t commented? He’s commented at least once on all the others.

  39. CLV says:

    hahaha wow. hmmm, i’m thinking a trip across the ocean is much required. i think just the cultural difference and language barriers would be enough for them

  40. Louisa says:

    Oh wow…DGAM is odd…I am compelled to read the awesomeness and yet whenever I read anything about these girls I lose IQ points.
    Still at least I don’t have to suffer the horror of LA. XD

  41. pb says:

    can they name more than three other places to live? because that’s the thing i can think of that might explain this ignorance.

  42. NORA says:

    these are some sad thoughts… Are you sure they are from California though? Oh and side note: Did you use a template for your site, Charlie?

  43. Christina says:

    Charlie, how do you do it? If I was living below these girls, I’d be facepalming so much I’d probably give myself brain damage

  44. Emie says:

    Seriously, I think you might live above my sister.

  45. HEY CHARLIE says:

    HEY CHARLIE! Can you tell us what these girls do for a ‘living’?

  46. Spooxi says:


  47. says:

    I believe this post may be the best, and the Justin Bieber conversation in the comments to be the best comment thread. Ever.

  48. Mere says:

    They could try Libya. I hear it’s nice there this time of year!

    • Mephistopheles says:

      Too cruel,

      its’s like taking a coulrophobic to the circus to watch the clowns.
      Hilarius but ultimately you terrify the clown.

  49. Maddy says:

    Question: do the girls know about the blog?

    • Hannibal lecter says:

      If they do, they’re probably sitting there giggling about how so intensely stupid the ‘girls above that blog guy’ are.

  50. Holly says:

    I mean having electricity, heat, shelter, escalators, paved streets, cars, clothing… SUCH A HARD LIFE

    • Tegan says:

      Those of us fortunate enough to have electricity, a roof over our heads, steady food supply, a refrigerator, are already in the richest 1% in the world. I imagine since it’s been implied they’re well off, it’s even more so.

  51. Zeina says:

    Guys… can you imagine GAM living in Saudi?
    Having to be clothed completely before they leave their house everyday, having a curfew, no drinking, no clubbing, no bringing guys home… I’d like to see them survive that :p

  52. Ylva says:

    Ey… Do not give them ideas. Japan has enough trouble already.

    • Ylva says:

      Right. I’m taking this back just now. Wrote, posted, read – oh crap. Stupid and in-sensitive.

      • Spooxi says:

        Don’t worry, it’s not offensive – not to Japan at least, hee hee. Fairly gentle compared to some of the stuff that’s doubtless going through everyone else’s heads when we hear about their idiocy xD

      • Ylva says:

        I am in Japan.

        And from that point of view I must say that my first add was both right and wrong:

        Imagining the GAM walking around in what I see on TV… I really get this: haven’t the poor people suffered enough already?
        Then again, as I see it, I get the “GAM is nothing to this”feeling.

  53. CookiesVs.Cupcakes says:

    Oh come on. Let them live in their innocence, and by that i mean innocence in the the world, not the never-had-sex kind. I giggle at the thought of them never having sex.

  54. Alicia says:

    They think LA is hard on them,
    Look at Japan and all that mayhem.
    People are dying and with no place to go,
    For the girls to complain is really quite low.
    But can we blame them? They don’t know much,
    Except about shopping, guys, and that such.

    Sorry guys…I know that’s extremely late. I was enjoying my last few days of spring break.
