Dumbasses


I swear I must live with the most illogical people in the country! It drives me nuts! At first its amusing. But give me a break!

For example, the other day flatmate 1 was out in the garden doing some weeding etc. Which is good. Except that we are getting a gardener soon to do it all properly. She has no idea what is a plant and what is a weed! So anyway, it had been raining the day before, so the soil was all wet. And when she had finished, she walks in the back door and through the house to the front door where she takes off her shoes and leaves them outside because they were muddy. So we had muddy footprints all down the hall way - which she didn't even notice. And it didn't even occur to her that she should either take her shoes off at the backdoor and carry them to the front, or since I was outside hanging out my washing, she could have asked me to meet her at the front door to open it!

Then there is flatmate number 2, who is studying in her room with the light on (its just after 3) wearing a tennis cap/visor thing. Inside. Nice waste of power there. This one also thinks that because she was the only one with a car when she moved in she should be allowed to park under the carport. So the other 3 people with a car have to park out on the road. There is no way in hell I am parking out on the road every day just so her insurance is a tiny bit lower!

All the power and phone and internet etc bills are under my name. Mainly because flatmate number 1 wouldn't know how to divide the cost properly and would ask me every 2 minutes how to do it. While I was in Tauranga, flatmate number 2 set up calltrack on our phone so that everyone has a pin to make toll calls. Which is a good idea. But she did it while I was away, on MY phone bill, and I can't even use it for toll calls because I wasn't here when she set it up! It made me so mad, and she didn't understand why. I'm the one who has to go out of my way to pay the bill every month and tell everyone how much to pay, she has never offered to help me or do it for me. So what right does she have to set up something which doesn't let me use my phone?

Also, when the dishwasher is on we just leave our dishes by the sink to put in later. But do either of them put any dishes away which aren't theirs? Hell no. They put theirs in the dishwasher and leave everyone elses.

Then there is flatmate number 3, who is flatmate 1's boyfriend. You can't leave anything soaking in the sink because he just empties his pots into that water. Once I left my blender to soak, went out and when I got home he had poured pasta water (with oil) into the water with the blender. Is it really that hard to take it out first? Apart from that, he is a really good flatmate. Doesn't mind taking me to the supermarket, and usually asks if I need to use any of the pots/pans (which are all mine) before he uses them.

What I don't understand about him is why he lets number 1 treat him the way she does. When discussing what they should have to eat during his get together for HIS birthday this is what happened:
Me: How about sausage rolls, mini savouries and cheeios and chips or something?
1: Hmmmmm (look on her face says she hates the idea) maybe. We could just go get fish n chips when everyones here.
3: Well if we're going to get food that needs to be cooked I would rather just grab a couple of frozen pizzas so we can bang them in the often and don't have to leave everyone to cook.
1: Nah. We'll just get sausage rolls, savouries and those cheerio things.

And no, she wasn't contributing any money to the food.

On Monday it was his day off work, and she was getting back from Taupo that morning. He works fucken hard, and the night before got home at 11 then took me to the supermarket so went to bed late. When she gets home she wakes him up and drags him out of bed and tells him to get ready because they had to go shopping to get him some new jeans. Not that he wanted to get new jeans. I think all he wanted to do was relax in bed most of the day. But no, she had a class at 3 so they had to be finished by then. So off they went and he came back with some new jeans.

Sometimes I have to leave the room when shes bossing him around like that because I get so close to yelling at her. I don't know how it must make him feel! Sometimes he says something back to her, but he never gets angry so she just thinks he's kidding.

Also, she makes him come home from work for dinner, but instead of having it ready for him when he gets home, she makes him cook it.

Okay, thats my bitch over for today. And yes, usually when things like this annoy me I do tell my flatmates why I'm pissed off but they never understand. They just apologise unsincerely and in the end I just have to let it go and get over it.

Sounds like you get rid of #1 and #2, but maybe you should hang on to #3.

It is a happy happy day when you can afford your own place I can tell you.

In the meantime, the next best thing is to be the one who's name is on all the bills -- but most importantly the tenancy agreement -- so at least you have the choice of booting bad flatmates out instead of having to look for somewhere else yourself.

I think it annoys them when I get mad at them. But I hate telling people the same thing over and over again. I tell number 1 something and later that day she would have totally forgotten. Its so frustrating!

And they don't like it that I'm always in my room with the door closed. They think I'm being antisocial but I have to have the door closed because one of them listens to music on her laptop which sounds like shit, and the other one listens to music which I hate. And instead of annoying them with my music or noise from the TV I close my door.

Well my name is on the tenancy agreement. But so is number ones. We didn't want just one person to be responsible for the whole flat after what happened with the last tenant.
