A co-worker returned to work today after moving away for awhile and asked me for a place to live. I wish I could help her but there is absolutely NO ROOM in my little house. I have no couch for her to sleep on, no TV in the living room for her to use, and there is so much work that needs to be done around here that I wouldn't want anyone else living here. The bathroom doesn't work right, etc.
Even if I had the room, there is NO place for her to put her clothes! No spare closet. And Jordan doesn't want a stranger living here, one who would have a key to the house, etc. She told me her husband won't let her live at his house while he is out of town. That tells me something.
So now, I have to find a way to tell her "no" without leaving her berefit. I know it's not my job to take in everyone and I feel badly that I can't help her but it just isn't possible. Does that make me mean?
