My roomies are upsetting me so badly :(. I’m really easy to get along with, have lived at my house for 3 years & never had an issue with any roomie at the house until now. I think this is the reason I have the ulcer.
At the end of Feb, my roomie M started to get really really LOUD at 2am/4am, etc. My room is right next to the living room, thin walls & it was keeping me up so I talked to M about it & was pretty much told “I pay rent, I can be as loud as I want whenever I want”. So M continued to be loud until she went on a 1.5 week vacation. While M was gone things were back to normal & quiet again. Yay sleep! So when M came back around March 18, she became super loud, having “tickle wars” with my other roomie & screams & laughs super loud. They won’t go into their rooms upstairs or into the kitchen where I wouldn’t hear them do this. They HAD to do it in the living room (using my furniture, might I add) at 3am, etc. & there were nights I didn’t get but 3 hours of sleep. M now glares at me & Fiance when he visits to help me pack.
So I gave my 30 day notice on March 15 (buying a house!) & a week later, they had to give their notice cause they couldn’t afford the place/deposits without me. So that weekend I packed up a TON of my stuff, all the living room furniture (4 couches & 2 tables) were mine, so I packed them up in the corner of the room & put some of my boxes from my room out there. My stuff wouldn’t fit with the couches as they were & I want to move ASAP & have tons more packing to do. Everything’s neatly stacked & only takes up about 1/4 of the living room. M has been loud all week & last night hanging out on the floor of the living room screaming & pounding the floor & laughing very very loudly. Then I got a text saying “move your stuff out of the living room cause its shared space” from my other roomie S who shares a room with M. S is usually really reasonable so I was suprised at her text. I replied “I’m only taking up 1/4 of the living room & you’re welcome to store stuff down there also since we’re moving out, just leave a path for me :)”. Everything in the living room is mine anyways before I moved things out there, the couches & tables & tvs, nothing in there was theirs except a few board games & dvds. I don’t see what they need the far wall for, except to upset me.
I’m considering moving all my stuff into my room or into a storage unit & taking EVERYTHING out of the house that’s mine, the washer & dryer & microwave & dishes & just storing them because if they had no problem with my living room stuff while they could use it, but as soon as I start packing they don’t want my stuff in the shared house? Except my 3rd roomie J who is neutral in everything & offered to help me move things when I need to.
All the bills are in my name, I’ll still pay rent cause I legally have to but I might cut off all the bills to the house & get them transferred to my new house. I’m not going to pay power at a house I’m not welcomed in when the bills are all in MY name! I’m calling my landlord to see what to do about this.
Or I could just leave everything as is, continue to pack up my stuff & store it in the living room like I never got the text. But their loudness is stressing me out & my ulcer is coming back due to stress & not sleeping enough. I know they’ll just get more & more loud as time goes on.
My boss said I could sleep at work. I’m the only one who works here & so I could move one of my couches here & I can’t really stay anywhere else, I have a dog & no one can watch her, either they’re allergic or dogs aren’t allowed by their landlords or they’re out of town, having company over, etc. My mom lives an hour away, so that would be bad for work plus I’m allergic to her cats. I can’t afford to kennel her & I can’t afford a hotel & since I still have to pay 1/2 month rent at my current place, I can’t afford to do much at all.
