Checking my Pulse?

This is another roommate update - if you'd like to know what's been going on so far check HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, and HERE. This is an extremely rant filled post, so if you don't like rants then I'll see you on Tuesday.

Yup. You read that title.

After I got home from work on Saturday, I put away all of my work stuff and changed out of my work clothes and laid down to take a well-deserved nap. I was only asleep for a few hours when I was woken up by my roommate, who had not at all gently pushed her fingers up against my neck and was looming over me. After I sat up and gave her a really weird look, she said she was worried I'd had an aneurysm.


For a lot of the semester I've been doing the best I can to avoid her completely, so to find her in my room hovering over me with her fingers on my neck while I was asleep really threw me off. Not to mention her claim that she was just making sure I hadn't had an aneurysm!

So far this semester, she has been the complete opposite of a good roommate.

To add to all of the other things that have happened (so far) -

I called maintenance because our dishwasher was leaking only to find out that she'd been putting dish soap in it instead of using actual dishwasher soap. After finding out about this, she very reluctantly bought a bag of little dishwasher nuggets.

For the first time this semester, she "cleaned" something! She vacuumed the floor in her own room. Later that same week I vacuumed the rest of the apartment because it wasn't dirty enough for her to vacuum it or to even offer to vacuum it while she had the vacuum out.

She invited over one of her man friends, which is all well and good, but she left the door to her room open while they did the "no pants dance" very loudly. He stayed over, and they did the dance again at 3am - WAKING ME UP. If she's going to be doing that stuff she could at the very least close her bedroom door or give me some kind of heads up so that I can be out of the apartment.

After we got our last electricity bill, she refused to tell me how much it was and how much my half of the bill was. I guessed based on the previous bill and paid her in cash appropriately (She typically paid the whole bills and then had me "pay her back" my half of the bill). I called our electrical company, and after talking on the phone with a customer service woman, I was able to gain online access to our electricity bills as well as the ability to pay my half online. I looked at this most recent bill and saw that I had underpaid her because I had underestimated what the cost was. Frustrated, I paid her the rest of what I owed her, and said that it would have been easier if she'd just told me how much my half was in the first place.

I had a package that wasn't delivered because no one answered the door. The delivery person left one of those papers with my information and a list of my options to then get the package - one of which was to sign the back of the paper and leave it on the front door for next day delivery. She had signed her name on the back of the paper for my package... Obviously the delivery person didn't accept it, so I wasn't able to get the next day service because she had tried to do it for me.

This was a very lengthy post... There have been so many things going on with her and I needed to rant and get them off of my chest.

I'll see you on Tuesday.
