I realize this may matter little in the, uh, wider context of things going
on right nowor actually, it probably fits right in!but last night some
stuff happened that I think was most Unexcellent & made me regret
belittling the concerns voiced by others in previous threads I can't think
of the names of right now.

Dan & Mik got in a fight & took it outside. According to Dan, Mik pulled a

both of these two careening out of control. The night before (Monday) Mik
bitched at me for taking out the bins early & replacing them with temp
compost & recycling bins to hold their place while the regular bins were
downstairs which I'd labeled as such (10 mins before another person had
thanked me for doing the same thing), then proceeded to angrily wash all
the dishes in the kitchen with such an aura of hostility radiating from him
