@Hope_To_Be_MrsLovebug:  Ugh…that’s pretty terrible, but my hard and fast rule would be, Unless you Pay Rent, you only sleep here on the weekends, Sunday night NOT included.  Snitch on your brother and his GF, if they wanna play house, they should do it on THEIR dime, not your Dad’s and since you are both there to learn….I think you are well within your rights to tell her to get the hell out, this isn’t the arrangement you signed on for, you don’t need your father to tell her to leave, you can tell her yourself.

@Hope_To_Be_MrsLovebug:  Can you lock your doors so she won’t use your stuff? Everytime she does I would comment on it and drive her crazy hehehe.

Also, every night she is there I would call your Dad and report it.

He gave her a key???  No way.  I’d be telling my dad that ASAP – she doesn’t get a key unless she’s paying AND your dad approves her being there.

I would tell your brother they either need to split time equally between staying in her dorm and at your place, or tell him she can’t stay over except on weekends. Period.

Wow…… I don;t think you shoudl eb the one to have to, but you should tell your dad again what is going on, and if he doesn’t believe you, have a discusison with him where you move (mayeb into the dorms on his dime, maybe into another apartment on yours)

 

Personally, I lived my own version of hell  when my younger sister when to my school(not an exaggeration, but she also had serious issues, not just normal teenager stuff), and while we both lived on campus, we were in completely different buildings. I can’t imagine how I could have managed if we lived together and our parents were involved…

This has nothing to do with anything, but seeing all those clothes laying on the floor reminds me of something I did when my stepdaughter thought it was a good idea to have her room looking like Holister horked all over the floor…so I tied all of her clothes together in one long rope and tossed it all back into her suitcase…that night was she was getting ready to put on her pajamas, she looked like a magicia with the handkerchief rope, she just kept pulling and pulling and pulling….

@Hope_To_Be_MrsLovebug:  if she’s taking/using your stuff she should be taught a lesson. I had a roommate who used to use all my shampoo / soap so I left a little shampoo in the bottle and peed to fill it up. needless to say that was the last time she used the shampoo.

@jenangeles:  +1!! If your dad won’t get into it, then take matters into your own hands. XD

And I’d suggest buying a new doorknob with a lock for your door (you can buy them in the hardware section of any Wal-Mart for less than $20). I had to do it with mine to keep my mom from stealing my money. And take your shampoo and stuff into your room (I also do this). Decide what you really don’t want anyone using (razors, loufas, really expensive shampoo, your favorite conditioner, whatever), and put it into a toiletries bag (also available at Wal-Mart for cheap, just get one made for travelling so it’sfairly water-proof. I use a bag that a Venus Divine set came in for Christmas once). It takes a little while to remember to grab it when you shower and repack it after, but it doesn’t take long to become habit.
