Out with the old, in with the new - Roommates!

January 15th, 2011 at 02:34 pm

So my roommate officially moved out yesterday. She left when I was at work, gave back all the keys & paid me what she owed me in cash. She's had a lot of drama in her life, and it didn't affect me too much, but by the end, I was just ready for her to go.

The room is clean, the bathroom is clean. She took all of her stuff, except for 2 small boxes that she put in the basement. Her parents are dropping by at some point to pick it up. I agreed to that since they live 45 mins away & she's moving wayyy out of state.

Unfortunately, she also took all but 1 roll of toilet paper. She bought the last pack of rolls, so I get that. But she even took the roll out of the downstairs bathroom!

On top of that, I noticed that she had used some of my towels & hung them to dry, but did not wash them.

And none of that is too bad compared to some of the horror stories that I have heard, but I was doing some cooking today & opened up my kitchen supplied drawer and found that she took all the bags, aluminum foil, plastic wrap, ect except for 1 set of sandwich bags & 1 thing of plastic wrap. I bought most of that stuff.

I also noticed she did not replace a baking tray she lent someone & never got back, several of my reusable water bottles are missing and she kept using my plastic containers & loosing them. So seriously? To actively take the tp off the roll?

LOL - whatever! She forgot the (new, nicer) shower head that she installed in the shower & I don't think I'm going to take it down unless she asks for it!

Tomorrow, the new roommate comes. I am doing some light cleaning today, but I'm all set up.

Today, I re-joined Weight Watchers, did some massive grocery shopping & borrowed a large crock pot from my mom. I made a big batch of baked potato soup & a batch of chicken tacos. Yumm!

    In the end, I think you came out ahead. People are puzzling. You'll never know the reason for her pettyness.

    Good luck with the new roomies.

    It does seem silly to take the roll OFF the dispenser. She must really need it Big Grin lol.

    Good luck with the new roommate.

    Most normal people would not care about some damn toilet paper even if they bought it esp. off the roll! Geez. Yeah you are better off. That's so petty not even to mention the foil and bags. That's so rediculous.

    In my imagination, she used every bit of TP to wrap fragile items for the move.... May your coming roommate be steadier and less headache.

    Crazy about the toilet paper. A friend of mine bought a house and the previous owners took all of the lightbulbs out of the sockets and also took all of the faceplates off the switches. People are very, very strange indeed!

    Hope your new roommate works out well Smile

    Small items at least. And yes, it could have been much worse. I'm guessing a male roommate will be better. Smile
