I spent my Saturday morning cleaning my apartment. It’s an apartment I pay roughly $1,600 a month for with three other roommates who pay $500 for a couple and $500 for a guy and a kid on the weekends. I pay all utilities.
So, I clean my room and when that is spotless, I move on to the living room, and when that is spotless, I move on to the kitchen. I discovered that the bottom of pretty much every pan I own is scratched to shit and the teflon is coming off. These are pans that I’ve only had for a year and a half, and I love them. They are red, and they match my kitchen.
I’ve finally had it. I send a message that says from here on out, all my stuff is off limits. One of the roommates comes out to try and plead his case. My response is this: I don’t give a shit who did it. I have nice things that I pay for, and as such, I don’t want them ruined. My stuff is off limits.
Then, I continue cleaning. It takes me 2 hours to clean the rest of the house. When I finally sit down on facebook, I see this nice passive aggressive status from my roommate:
Here, let me enlighten you to my logic, since apparently it is so ASTOUNDING.
I like nice things. I spent my hard earned money on nice things. I don’t want my nice things destroyed by people who aren’t me.
I also like a clean house. I pay a lot of money for my nice things and I want my nice things to be in a clean area. I don’t want a fridge where I can’t find food because there are week old leftovers in bags in my way. I don’t want fruit flies in my sink. I want my microwave to not have leftover food in it because no one knows how to run a damn lysol wipe that I went and bought through it.
You know what else I don’t want to have to do? Take out all the trash. I hate taking out the trash. Everyone does. But you know what, when my Saturday cleaning generates this much trash:
After I already TOLD YOU four days ago that I was tired of the trash situation, that I’m left to do BY MYSELF because god forbid someone else do it, I’m going to be pissed.
And if you don’t like my logic? You can get the fuck out. Because your $500 isn’t worth me being your fucking maid.
