- Wedding: December 2011
Who knew this month would have started off so crappy.
I’m a ball of emotions and just dont know how to deal with it all.
Our Mistake: was trusting her and her bf when they came to look at the room we decided to rent out to help save money for the wedding. We did month-to-month and no written agreement, I know NOW huge mistake. When he left 2 months after due to cheating I knew we should have made her leave too. But we didnt. We let her stay, then she gets her car repo’d, bf comes back around, she needs to catch up on car payments so she shorts us $200/month for two straight months. And REPEAT.
Today was the 2nd (rent’s already late) and we woke up to a handwritten letter instead of the usual rent check. She wanted to see OUR lease agreement for our rent cost and all utilities bills for history of cost. She didn’t think it was fair to have to pay for Internet she doesnt use; since she has no computer. Rent has ALWAYS been $800 for the past 10 months she’s been with us; minus the times she needed help. And not to mention ever hearing about that money being paid back or worked off or anything, convenient.
Fast forward to present, after reading the letter this AM I was fuming. What nerve! Our water bill & eletricity had gone up due to her frequent bf spending the night 5-6 nights a week. I had it. We tried talking to her this AM but she didnt answer her bedroom door. I left a note that we are disappointed and we ask that she not have any guests until we resolved the issue.
At work I drafted up a letter and posted it on her bedroom door for when she got home later that evening. As she came in from after work she wanted to talk right away. I told her about the letter and about 1/2 an hr later comes down to say she’s giving her 30days notice and wont be paying any rent for this month since she’s not on the lease agreement and that we could take her to civil court if we wanted. (And for what, she cant even make her rent and is struggling again with her car?) SQUATTER! And to put the cherry on the cake; guess who knocked on the door? THE BF! I was like “are you kidding, we asked that you not have anyone over while we discuss this?” And she replies with “First off I’m not 10 and I can have visitors when I want.” I said “Oh so you want to be respected but not respect, HA!” then She says “Ya Bitch, laugh and see you get your rent check!”
HAHA This girl has NO idea who she’s messing with. And this was after being calld a B**ch and her storming off 2 times. She only would make eye contact with my Fiance. She wouldnt talk to me; she kept saying she wouldn’t, kept saying I was too upset to deal with it. Her saying those things were only make everything I was feeling WORSE.
LATER…she presented us a “counter offer” LOL I cant believe I’m even writing that…but she ony wants to pay $700; since she thinks a 2bedroom place should be divded amongst 3, I didnt know I got my own bedroom and bathroom too!?! Earlier she even admitted to already been looking and all she can find is having to share a bathroom with 5 guys or being in really scary places; well you get what you pay for I guess, esp. in Orange County, CA! And in all honesty, the few friends I told about this situation earlier ALL have said they wish they could just pay $800 and live nice! So what I’m figuring out is that she’s approached this situation ALL wrong. She’s making it out to be WE are stiffing HER, but in all actuality she just cant AFFORD to live with US and what we know we can get for the room and what we WANT for the room.
Fiance is going to talk to her again tomorrow to clairify things and ask for $750 since that was her original offer to us; but I’ll only take it if she agrees/signs to leave on Oct. 1st.
I dont know what to expect of writing this…I just am so frustrated and scared. I guess I’m super heated and emotionally hurt because we had to officially dip into our Wedding Fund to cover her portion of rent. And its setting us back.
Thanks for reading my drama ladies.
