- Wedding: April 2014
Just got home yesterday from 3 weeks in the SW USA – great time! Loved everywhere except LA really (sorry LAers!).
While we were away my mum text and said our housemate had people over while she was not at the house. (Lucky for me Mum and Dad live next door) Not cool obviously – having people we don’t know in our home while she is not there (we own the house, she rents a room in it). Got in touch with her, explained that wasn’t on. Long story but she had given them keys, they were staying there while she was away for the weekend blah blah, using our stuff etc. She at the same time announced she would be moving out as well (good, after what she had done we wanted her out) Before she left she also text me and my mum asking if her parents could stay over and use our bedroom (WTF!?) and her cousin stay in the house while we were at work (umm, did we not discuss that you can’t have people in the house while you are not there?). We both told her no way and it was not acceptable for anyone to be in our bedroom let alone sleeping in there. After that she moved out very promptly.
We arrive home yesterday morning to a house that reeks of smoke where they have used our combustion heater incorrectly. I was going to have to launder all the curtains, steam the furniture, wash the floors etc. There was a crack in our shower screen too. The house was also a bit untidy, but I could live with that. I then go in our bedroom. The bed is made differently. Our stuff has been moved. There is wax from candles all over my dresser and mirror. Now we are super pissed off. Obviously the initial guests had stayed in our bedroom. I just feel so violated and can’t believe someone would think this is acceptable. To top it all off, while cleaning later that afternoon I find an empty bottle of lube under my bed and stains on our bedspread and sheets. Unreal. Fiance couldn’t speak for about 5 minutes when I showed him. Who does that! It’s someone’es home, not a bloody Travelodge where you can do as you please!
She will not be getting any of her bond back, that’s for sure! Definitely no housemates ever again. And we had not had a problem with her in 6 months!
