A mystery bean-spiller whose stairwell mess annoyed apartment-block residents has triggered a food-based whodunnit.
The page recently shared a photo of a New York City apartment stairwell with a bean or soup container alongside what also appears to be little containers of dressing spilled on the steps.
Most people would hastily clean up after a mishap like that, but a back-and-forth posting of notes suggests the food debris was left for days - with the culprit still at large.
“To whoever spilled the beans, f*** you,” wrote Cecilia Reisner on a piece of paper in response to the mess. “Pick up after yourself.”
“3 days ?!?! are you serious? Pick up after yourself. I’m tired of stepping over this,” said Reisner.
But a response posted on the wall was not the one she was clearly hoping for.
“It is I, the soup spiller … I’ll never clean up my mess, nor will I stop. Every two weeks, I’ll spill more soup. You’ve been warned. P.S. This is soup-er exciting.”
Does The Joker live in this apartment block?
Reisner had the best response to the movie villain-esque provocation.
“Dear soup spiller, I don’t know who you are or why you’re doing this, but I will find you, Reisner said. “I swear on this spilled soup that I will get you. My vendetta is inevitable and impossible to hinder. Your *** mine, b**** – Guardian of the Stairwell.”
Expect the passive aggressive war of words to continue until one side realizes the best use of their considerable efforts would be on grabbing a mop and bucket and just cleaning it up.
