All right, I'm sure you guys had roommate problems in college. Here's one for ya. Mine bought a Cubs rug somewhere for 20 bucks and then put it in front of our door so that we'd step on it when we walk in the room. Normally, I wouldn't mind someone putting up Cubs stuff in my living quarters, but now I gotta walk into the room and actually step on one? I have no idea what the hell I should do about this.

Muddy shoes are your friend. I'd have no problem stepping on it then.

Stepping on the Cubs every time you walk in the door? Sounds good to me!

Find somebody walking their dog. When the dog does what dogs do on a walk, step in it, tiptoe back to your room and clean your shoes on the rug. I'm sure the rug will quickly disappear after that.

Isn't it obvious that this is what Cubs rugs were invented for?

I know sometimes I have to pee right before I go into my room. Now, you have an ideally close bathroom.

I thought it was bad when my freshman roommate went to bed at 7 PM every night and bitched at me for being too loud as I studied with the lights off.

At least we didn't have a Cub rug!

Kind of off topic, but my first year in college at Loyola, I stayed in the dorms. Loyola gave the room mates number out to the other family. Well my room mates Mom called my house and she talked to my mom. My room mate was from NY but anyways his mom said, "Oh and guess what he is a cubs fan." In some odd attempt of trying to find some commonality. My moms response was classic. "You may as well told me he is an ax murderer." My room mate only lasted half a year with me.

I agree with INR. Suicide is painless.

I'd post a bigger white sox themed print/poster ON the door, preferably something with the words "Champions" on it.

Done. The sign says "World Series Champions Parking Only". Now, the question is how long will it stay up there.

I certainly think that if he ****s with your Sox stuff you can **** with his Flubbie stuff.

Buy a Sox rug and put it on top.

When I was a little kid my mom hooked both a Sox and a Cubs (why, I have no idea) rug. Recently she found them in storage and gave them to me. Now I have unsuccessful tried to trade the cubs rug to some misguided friends. So they both lay on the floor at the base of the wall that contains all my Sox memorabilia. My German Shepherd is fond of sleeping on the Sox rug but I caught her tearing up the Cubs rug. She noticed me and looked guilty like she was about to be punished. I just said good dog and patted her on the head. :D:

The Cubs are routinely the doormats of the National League so this rug is not much different is it?

If you ever feel the urge to throw up, that rug would be the place to do it.

My sister was renting a room from me at one point about a year ago and insisted on having her cubs fluffy rug by her door. My cat repeatedly crapped on that rug. I dont know why - he doesn't crap elsewhere in the house, and he didn't crap elsewhere in the house prior to the rug being there.

Maybe it was just that he liked how fluffy it was or something. Maybe he is a really smart cat. After all, he used to crap in my evil ex-girlfriends beanbag chair all the time too. :gulp:

Get a sign made to hang on the wall over the rug

"100 years of being stepped on and counting"

You could also just throw it in the fireplace, and if you dont have one, you could light it on fire and throw it on his bed, and tell him you got a fireplace.

Surprisingly, he took it well. As it turns out, he put the rug out just to piss me off, which he unfortunately succeeded in doing.

One night you'll get drunk and figure out what to do with it. Then the following day you'll feel like a jackass and have some apologizing to do.

When I was in college, my neighbor in the dorm room next door liked to wake up extremely early and play a particular rap song loud and over and over again. I don't know if it helped him get pumped for the day or what, but it was quite irritating, especially because it was so early in the morning and it was the SAME song.

One day, I had had enough, on a day I had to get up early for an exam, I placed my speakers towards his wall and cranked Tiffany's "I think we're alone now" on repeat, and left for the day... I never heard the rap song in the morning again, and I never played Tiffany again =)

They're the doormat of the National League."

I had a really homophobic roommate who was a cubs fan. He used to mess with me a lot. So I duck taped this to his door

My roommate has gone ahead and printed out pictures of the Cubs logo and put them on our door and hanging from our light with one saying "Go Cubbies!" If he wants to play ball, I'm game.

Exactly.. My wife this weekend saw a sox doormat and I said i dont get that.
Its like desecrating the flag to have someone step on your team logo.

Stomp on that rug all you want my friend..

As someone said earlier: Alcohol will help you figure your agenda out in due time. It's college!

One night, get drunk and piss on some Cubs stuff. When asked to explain, reply, "I was trying to be a Cubs fan! You all piss in, on, and around your sacred stadium and I was just following the example!"
