I’ve been a complainer for as long as I can remember. While reading over some email archives yesterday, I stumbled upon two complaints that I submitted at The College of New Jersey. The first one was sent to the Residental Office regarding an issue in my freshman dorm, and another was sent to Sodexho, the company that supplied the food on campus. I did not receive responses to either of these complaints, other than an email that my friend Inga jokingly sent to me. Enjoy.

To Whom it May Concern,
I live on the fourth floor of Wolfe, and I just wanted to inform you of a small problem that exists in the girls bathroom. One of the sinks has been leaking for at least a month. It isn’t a one-drop per minute leak, however; it is more like a continuous stream of water flowing out of the faucet. It is not particularly annoying–I just felt I should bring it to some attention because it is wasting a huge amount of water, which I’m sure the school will end up paying for in the long run. If someone could come and simply fix the leak, I think it would be doing a service to both the girls on Wolfe 4 and TCNJ.

Dear Ms. Lazzaro,
Thank you for your concern. It is environmentally minded citizens like you that bring cool glasses of water to our parched nation.
Just one question for you though, is your water running?
Cause you better go catch it!

Please, please, for the love of god, stop making grilled cheese sandwiches with 2-inch slices of Texas toast. I don’t know how, but you’ve managed to ruin a CLASSIC sandwich that everyone knows and loves. I don’t understand why you can’t just use normal slices of bread when you make the sandwiches. With the Texas toast, the ratio of cheese to bread is extremely unequal and more in favor of bread than cheese. Out of respect for the sandwich itself, please make grilled cheeses with normal bread. I am not alone in my complaint. The TCNJ community as a whole will benefit from this monumental change. Thank you.
I used to get really mad about food at school.
