I am wondering if anyone else would be mad in this situation or if I am overreacting/PMSing. Because I do get bad PMS, lol.
Brief background: I rent a 2 bedroom condo with a roomate, who is a close friend of mine for many years. We have lived there for a couple years, had a couple minor arguments but otherwise are close and get along. She has a 4 year old dog who lives with us and I recently got a puppy. We are both animal lovers.
Here is my isse. Her dog has a “peeing problem” as I call it. She pees in the house basically every day. When someone walks in, 9 times out of 10, she gets excited and pees everywhere. My roomate has seen several vets about it and tried to get it under control, but she still has many accidents. I frequently clean her dog’s pee off of the floor, rug and even once or twice off of my couch (when the living room door was left open). Many times my roomate is not home so if she pees, I just clean it. I also have fed her for my roomate because she picks up night shifts at her job, so I let her dog outside to go to the bathroom, etc. when she is not home to do so.
Now my puppy is only a few months old and therefore quite active. She does all of the normal puppy things: bites, chews, jumps, pees and poops in the house. I am still training her. I do not expect my roomate to do any of the training nor have I ever asked her to watch my puppy or let my puppy out… because my pup is a lot of work.
This morning I was showering and I keep my puppy with me in the bathroom with some chew toys. My roomate walked in and said “FYI the puppy shit on the floor” … then she brushed her teeth and walked out. I was still showering so my puppy had time to step in the poop and walk all around the bathroom with it all over her, and get it everywhere. I got out of the shower and had to pick her up and clean her off and then scrub it off of different areas of the floor and bathmat, whereas if my roomate just picked the small pile up and tossed it in the toilet, that would have never happened!!
I found what she did so rude. She had already left the house while I was cleaning so I didn’t say anything to her, but I think I want to. In addition to caring for her dog on occasion, I am the type of roomate who, regardless of whos dishes are in the sink, will just wash them. If there is snow on her car in the morning and I am cleaning my car, I will clean hers too. Yet she leaves my puppy to prance around in shit?
I know this is trivial stuff, but it is the principle. Am I overreacting?
