So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.

Surprise Roommate
Wednesday. 6.17.15 2:02 am
We got a new, surprise roommate. That is, Roommate 1's friend has been hanging around our house and staying in our extra room for weeks at a time, and finally Roommate 1 just announced that he had already given up his old lease and was going to live with us from now on. Not like, "Would you guys be ok with my random friend living with us for an unspecified amount of time?" Just "my friend is now living with us. You get some money off your rent, isn't that great?" She's on the lease and we're not, which is I guess what makes her think she can just do things like that.

And what about back rent from the half of May that he lived with us? What about June's rent, which we already paid? [We're going to apparently get money back from June. Thank you, your excellency.]

Roommate 2: "Hey Roommate 1, shouldn't this utility bill you sent out go to all five of us now?"

Roommate 1: "Oh, that bill isn't that much, we can just split it between the four of us, it's not a big deal."


Roomate 3: "But I have some company coming in June that was going to stay in that room."
Roommate 1: "They can just stay in your room."
Roommate 3: "In my double bed?"

Me: "But I have company coming in July which I already told you about who are supposed to stay in that room."
Roommate 1: "Oh, they can just stay in your room."
Me: "Both of them? In my single bed?"
Roommate 1: "Ok, whatever, they can sleep on the couch."
Me: "So... whose bathroom is he going to use? [Roommates 1 & 2 each have their own bathrooms, and roommate 3 & I share one, but the guest room is right next to ours.]"
Roommate 1: "I really think that he should use whatever bathroom is most convenient for him, you know?"

I would have strangled someone by now but for the fact that her friend is pretty nice, and his presence stops everyone from strangling each other, which is an unexpected and welcome change to the normal house dynamic.

Wait, your apartment has five bedrooms and three bathrooms? Am I understanding that right? Because that makes it sound like your apartment is bigger than my house. o_O

Also, that sounds pretty frustrating, although it's good that the new roommate is nice.

Oh man ... that sounds so annoying. This is one of many reasons why I don't think I could ever do roommates.

Hopefully it works out for the best.
