crazy people who steal from me

so someone in my building (of only 5 apartments)keeps stealing my laundry detergent. Like I said it is a small building and there is a coin-op washer and dryer in the basement that everyone uses. There is a counter set up with everyone's detergent and dryer sheets marked with apartment numbers in sharpie pen (because we can't be expected to remember which brand we bought)
The first time it happened we had just come back from the store and had not yet labeled the bottle. good people that we are we saw the error of our ways and the next bottle we bought I labeled (A LOT) I put our number all over the bottle and the lid and I even wrote a little note from the detergent asking people not to use it because this particular detergent thought me and michael were pretty nice folks that didn't deserve to be screwed around with. Now I ask you. What kind of a sick person takes laundry detergent that talks?
I feel like I have been transported back to my days with passive aggressive psycho Julie. Dude, neighbors...if you need to borrow some detergent just ask its no big deal...but don't steal our stuff. We are very busy students on very low funds. We don't have the dollars to go buying bottles of detergent every week. Not even the really cheap store brand bottles. also how sad is it that you steal the cheap store brand bottles that we buy and not the other neighbors fancy Tide and Whisk.
As we speak Michael is going door to door to implore our neighbors not to take our stuff or maybe to scare them silly so they do not steal stuff again. now he is back and has had no luck but the people in number three were home but did not come to the door. hmmm. number three the only apartment that we don't know the people...
Any suggestions will be helpful and welcome. Right now we will have to wait to buy some more before we can do laundry, then we will have to keep the detergent in the apartment and carry it up and down 4 flights of stairs everytime we put it a new load. well I will try to be a glass half full girl and say...I guess it will build up my arms grr.

So here's the scoop: I had said I would make fondue for you guyses sometime, would you like to do it thursday?

See, I party fouled at BBG's birthday, and then that nice guy Neale that I've been on a couple dates with helped Assia carry my drunk ass home, and helped find my keys.... meanwhile I was passed out in the hallway. I am super appreciative, and he didn't have a good time at the party because BBG and Robb were mean to him. So to make up for a really fucked up friday, I'm making fondue for him.

I thought I could take care of everyone in one big batch of fondue. I have a very big fondue pot. Neale is very nice, you guys would like him, although he knows nothing about music....

So yeah let me know so I know how much cheese to buy. As for those laundry detergent-stealing bastards, pour out your detergent in another container for yourself and keep it in your apartment, and then fill up the bottle with something really smelly.... like gasoline or cat urine. Won't they be surprised ~evil laughter~

I like Alyssa's demonic-detergent-replacement plan. What are you doing March 11th-13th? Let me know, and if you aren't swamped with work maybe I can hop in my car and drive out to see you then.

so I decided against the demonic detergent plan. I am not really that vindictive and the only thing I could think of (that wouldn't ruin the washer for all of us) was to fill a container of detergent with bleach...then I thought that would probably just give the loser whiter whites.

Angelique-write me back or call about the visit

Alyssa-good fondue and conversation thank you!
