Fed Up

I had a lovely weekend - made progress on animation, had a relaxing time at Simon's.

One thing marred it somewhat - and I'm too pissed off to care whether this is bad form or not - but one of my housemates, Elliot, hasn't given me bill money or shown any evidence that he's set up a standing order as I requested several times.

That is definitely bad form, time to Ebay all his stuff!

Oh, he DEFINITELY has a lot of stuff, which he ensures to buy BEFORE bothering to pay bills .... I noticed he also had a night out mid-week, again something he did before paying bills first :/

I have no patience whatsoever for people like that!

I've got patience, but not for people who take the piss :/ And for people who've had SEVERAL warnings / opportunities to change their ways!

Oh man... I was just going to say that it's a really bad sign if this is not the first time... best to nip it in the bud now before it becomes a longterm problem.

I agree - we've repeatedly tried reasoning tactics, but nothing's getting through. I just feel seriously pissed off.

OK I know i'm playing devil's advocate here - and there is absolutely NO excuse for not being able to show you the screenshot of the standing order, and he should have known about the phone bill money before you paid it - But he is shit with money towards the end of the month - well anything after the first week of the month really, and we do both know that.

Actually i've changed my mind on any defence I was going to give him because had we not paid it, then it would have been overdue and the internet would have been cut off.

Bollocks to it.

He is shit with money, but he did go out last week after he claimed he couldn't pay me.

I've just had enough. He is a pooface.

Och, that recalls my bastard lazy ****** of a flatmate in newcastle, who spent his money on stuff or occasionally looking for work. And we would continue to harangue him, as he was being very unfair. It's case of your a flatmate, in this arrangement, pull your weight, and act like a grown up.

I wil admit to still owing money for bills to old housemates, simply because stupidiy, one person dealt with all of them, and left them for about three quarters of a year, before asking us for money. That was really silly, astronomical amounts, and unemployment doesn't help. I want to pay it back now! but it's not feasibly possible at the moment. The rare times she gave it to us on time, I'd get them the money within a week. And add to that bloody cheek, of other flatmate saying we owed rent for that person's absence in room, in leaving, when no-one but me had bothered looking for peopld and placing ads. Then when my room and someone else's room went, the other person only advertised their room. Some house/flatmates just need a good slap. Yes, flatmates, I could rant some more. :(
