Roommate Norman Schleptfelder Jr., a person who was until recently employed as dishwasher at the local diner Peachy Pancakes, keeps repeating the phrase ‘the new Norm’ every time he gets a haircut or a new pair of tennies or shades. He was not invited to the last Poker Night despite having been practicing on internet poker sites since the middle of March in anticipation.
‘Look, it’s the new Norm,’ he will say, or ‘The new Norm is here to stay.’ What is definitely not part of the new Norm is any new resolution to do his own dishes, offer to cook for the house, pick up his junk, or do any cleaning whatsoever. In that sense the new Norm is exactly the same as the same Norm his housemates have always known.
