My bestie, Mary and I had been dating for nearly more than one years when all of us moved in together. It seemed enjoy a easily great way to save on rent and utilities. Both of us are both recently graduated from university, not making much money, and struggling to spend our money off student loans. We’ve now been living together for nearly a year, and I can’t wait for the lease to be up. Living with Mary is costing myself and others a fortune, and she’s driving myself and others insane. Both of us both agreed all of us would take every chance to split costs, however she’s consistently wasting money. When Mary gets the groceries, she comes condo with imported cheese, exotic fruits, gourmet cooking oil and chocolate. When she leaves for job in the morning, she never bothers to adjust the control unit. I often come back to an empty home and find either the cooling system or heating component blasting at maximum capacity. Last Winter season, the outside temperature was 28 degrees, and the furnace was struggling to meet demand. It kept running and running, and yet the home felt downright chilly. I finally observed a cold cold draft and discovered that Mary had opened the powder room window. She apparently wanted to let out the steam, and never considered how much all of us spend our money every month in heating bills. When I got irritated over it, she accused myself and others of being insensitive. I don’t complain over her buying current shoes every month. I have no concern with all of the worthless stuff she orders online. But since all of us share the cost of utilities, I’m not going to let her open windows while the heating or cooling system is running.
