Temper Tantrum

Monday, June 14, 2010

I am so MAD right now I'm shaking as I right this! I've been living with friends for three months looking for a job. I am collecting unemployment, paying my share of the rent, and sharing a room with my ten year old son. Not to mention I clean up after just about everybody. In three months that I've lived here I think two of the three roommates have done the dishes two times each, and the other one has never done it. I've cleaned just plain gross things out of the bathroom that we won't even talk about, and although only one of the three cats inside is mine my son is the one who takes care of the litter box and feeding them WITHOUT EXCEPTION! I have done everything I can to not be a burden to my friends...

I just got asked to move out by the end of the month. It was done in a very passive aggressive way by one of the roommates. The one who likes things his way, and his way only, but doesn't really have the balls to tell you exactly what he wants, but instead makes you feel like a piece of shhh. He let me know that I've over stayed my welcome, and that the other two have been asking him what my plan was. By the way, both of the other two have told me on more than one occasion that they've enjoyed me living here, that having a kiddo around all the time is different, but their learning to deal with it. I think he's full of shhh! (BTW, my kiddo left last Thursday to visit family for two months).

Yes, its been a tough change for everyone involved. I'm NOT used to having roommates at all. I've done things on my own terms my entire adult life. Yes, it sucks that I don't have a job or my own place for me and my son. This is not the ideal place for me BY FAR! But I'm doing what I have to do. I don't have a car or a driver's license, and still I'm looking for work. He should know how tough it is because he lost his job right after I did, and is still unemployed. He's just lucky he didn't live where he worked and loose him home as well, like I did.

OMG I still feel like punching something!!! I hoped getting this all out would make me feel better, but it hasn't. I'm ticked...

    My heart goes out to you and your son and I know how horrible it is for you. You didn't ask for any of it and he should have some compassion toward people. He will find out the hard way how people should be treated because it will come home. Because this is several months old I hope you have found a place of your own and a job. In today's world that is not easy and I don't know what State you are in but our little State is hard to get a job or place. My prays will be with you and may God watch over you always. Stay strong and keep yourself focused on staying healthy for your son and you. The Spark people will be there to give you support.

    I'm so sorry to hear about this. I wish I could help. Some people are just.... bad words! I hope everything turns out, and in the meantime I'm sending you lots of mental hugs.

    UGH! Nothing worse than a passive aggressive and unappreciative creep to ruin your day, Particularly one who clearly lacks any sensitivity when it comes to understanding how tough it might be to be an unemployed mom! What a jerk.

    I am sorry to hear you had to deal with him, maybe HE should move out... ;)
