i have a part time job, dad is alone at home, i don't have a car, he has a car, and studies masters at a local university
what do i do
I was told "there are children here." I didn't know that meant four out-of-control teens who played their music so loud that the bass caused two framed prints to jump off the wall and become wrecked. The wouldn't lock the front door and this was when the Night Stalker was roaming the area. I slept with a rock hammer under my pillow. They stole my food and went into my room when I wasn't there, stole money and jewelry, and their mother defended them! One would ditch school, come home, and smoke pot all day. The final straw was when I found a revolver in the (open) garage. I left that day and was charged money because I hadn't given 30 days notice. I was also charged for damages their cat caused. Never again. I never had roommates after that and never will.
Why is it, that when you talk about nightmare roommates, the one showing a thief just happen to be black, out of 21 situations you show black hands taking money from a wallet? There's not a black face in any of the other 20 situations. CRAZY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And as far as handling the drug dealer, just make an anonymous phone call to the cops...just make sure you don't come back until he's been taken away...
Man, I'm evil.....
Both my roomie and I are "ghosts" between our different work and school schedules, he usually spends weekends at the parents, ect....it's GREAT, half of the expenses, none of the drama!! We don't even fight over the bathroom-he's usually gone while I'm there, or vice versa!!
Don't know WHAT'S going to happen when we graduate next summer....probably drive each other up a tree....
I've dealt with various roomates for the past 4 years and I'm done! They have no respect for your personal property they never clean and they eat up all your food. I've decided I will try my hardest to get my own place because I haven't done to good with roomates.
