rit!

HORRIBLE room mate.

ok. I live in a 5 bedroom house with my boyfriend and 2 other roomies. The house belongs to my boyfriend's aunt so she is technically our land lord. we never signed a lease or anything we are just paying rent and utilities and she is letting us live there.

here is the problem:
my 23 year old room mate (alex) is the biggest loser/piece of shit on the face of the planet. He was home schooled by his mother first of all (I have no problem with this, because most people who were home schooled are smart). He lacks any kind of social skills whatsoever and therefore only hangs out with 17 year old kids (bag boys from the grocery store he works at). He works part time at publix and has no ambitions or goals in life at all. He comes home from work and plays video games/goes on the computer/watches tv/ plays dungeons and dragons with his stupid friends/ creates messes all over the house and never ever ever ever ever cleans them. I am actually embarassed to invite my friends over because he is so awkward and weird. every time I cook he invites himself to eat my food, he even sticks his unwashed hands in my food sometimes. when I buy food he eats it without asking and he even ate an entire pan of brownies that I baked in one night. He is the most lazy person I have ever met and I have lived with him for 1 1/2 years. I have had numerous conversations with him about picking up his messes and i swear its like talking to a wall because he never listens to me. He makes messes constantly, I literally cleaned the kitchen 3 times in 2 days because he fucked it up so fast. I told him that I am not his mother and he is expectd to clean up after himself. he straight up told me that if Im not his mother then he does not have to listen to me. this boy is so lazy that he dropped out of community college because he claims it is "too hard". I am sorry but I went to that college when I was in 10th grade and its honestly so easy to pass its like a friggin joke. The newest problem is that he just got a 16 year old girl friend.
My other 2 roomies and myself find this completely disgusting and we do not like the fact that there is statuatory rape happening in our house.
I told the land lord about it and she is making us all sign an agreement stating that you must clean up after yourself, blah blah blah.... AND there will be no minors to spend the night and any minor must leave the house by 10pm (thats what the 16 year old driving curfew is in florida). needless to say, he is not happy about this. so far he has not signed the paper and I guess he is thinking about moving out. of course its not official yet but I really hope that he just moves out because I honestly cant stand his bullshit anymore.


my questions:

1.do you think that this is agreement with the minors is unreasonable? why/why not?
2. what would you do/how would you handle this situation?
3. what do you think about a 23yr old dating a 16 year old (shes in 10th grade)?
4. why is my room mate such a fucking loser asshole shithead?!
5. have you ever been in this situation before?
6. why dont people have manners or courtesy or respect for the people they live with?


edit: how the hell do you do a lj cut?! I tried using the cut button but something is going wrong. idk! im sry its such a novel but I am just SO needing to vent lol

editx2: I let him get away with it for so long because he was a nice guy for awhile. We were friends in the beginning. we fixed up and painted the house before we all moved in together and he seemed like a perfect match at first. I really would like to mediate the issue instead of losing him as a roomie. I feel like my boyfriend and I are maturing greatly and its almost like his maturity is regressing. we feel like we are living with a teenager. I am paying my way through college and cannot afford to lose his share of the rent payment and utilities payment. also, when we moved in together I bought a living room set on my credit card and my boyfriend and alex and I split the payments. so he technically owns one of the couches in the set as well as the cofffee and end tables. also the internet/tv/phone is in his name and his contract was signed for 2 years. This is a complicated issue and it is not as simple as just kicking him out (even though I think its ultimately going come to that in the end.)

Block and tackle

Is there any way to block comment e-mail notifications on specific reply threads people post on Livejournal entries without blocking all e-mail notifications on postings?
Like, say a person is in community X, in which he or she is getting flamed heavily, but they want to know if anyone replied to a topic in community Y, a community with relatively little or no drama.
I'm just curious because I think some flame wars would end better if there were some way to opt out of the conversation and let the other guy rant forever unheard (by the other party at least!).
Also, it would help in situations where you make a post and people start getting into an epic discussion about some unrelated topic on your post and you end up getting all the messages.
It would also help you avoid getting spammed by creepy stalker types.
Is there any option like this on LJ?

Do you think that kids should call adults Mr./Ms./Mrs. so-and-so? How do you feel about being addressed by a title? I was somewhere this weekend where all the kids called me Ms. Lindsay, and while I prefer that to Ms. Lastname, it still sounded weird to me. But I let them call me that because that's what their parents preferred.

My fiance and I looking for a place to go for my honeymoon in mid-July. It has to be in the US, and we've both been all over the East Coast so maybe somewhere out of that area. We want to be able to stay in a city-- large or small-- but be able to also explore outside of the city to do outdoorsy things.

Where should we go?

Do you wash dishes primarily to (a) remove food residue or (b) remove "spit" residue? If you had to pick.

My husand the other day handed me a mug he had poured coffee in but changed his mind about drinking. He said "you can just rinse the mug out since my mouth didn't even touch it." I was shocked since to me old food residue is grosser than my own spit residue. To him, his spit residue is grosser than old food residue.

Where's the coldest place you've been?

Lapland in Finland. Despite the many layers and insulating vests I was wearing, it was fucking freezing. The experiences I got from it were amazing, though. We went for Christmas so it was very much in the minus'.

Where's the hottest place you've been?

From memory, Singapore. The humidity was insane. Fiji and Australia could give it a run for its money, though.

I found a PUCH brand girl's sized track/street bike near my house. I assume it was stolen but I've reported it to the police and it hasent been listed as stolen. I'm going to post a Craigslist ad to try and find the owner. How much is the bike worth? It's in good condition, if I dont find the owner I'm going to sell it.

Okay, I know this is a few...years late, but w/e.

This question is for people who like the Pirates of the Caribbean movies.

In the third movie, did you realize that in the easter egg scene ("10 years later...") when Will Turner is coming back to land, that he was being released of his duties to the Dutchman because Elizabeth had stayed loyal to him? Had she not been there to see him, he would have been made to stay on the Dutchman? I totally did not grasp this myself but my clever friend explained it to me and I was super psyched by a happy ending (which I previously thought was a really depressing ending.)

Yeah, this feels out of place being so long since the movie actually came out, but everyone else I've talked to about the movie has thought the same way I had, that Will was stuck to the Dutchman for all eternity.

Also, PotC4 in the brewing bin. What do you think? No Will, no Elizabeth, just Jack Sparrow. Me, not so stoked.

1.If you have housemates, how is shared space divided? Eg. Do you have a shelf each in the cupboard/fridge, or is everything in the cupboards organised by type (eg. all grains, sauces, snacks in the same sections with their ilk)?

Alt. Q1. If you don't have housemates, tell me something of your house organisation.

I have the cupboards organised by type. My new (otherwise awesome) housemate has been putting his vegemite in the sauces section when it is clearly not a sauce. The sauces section is right next to the condiments/cans section, so I can see the confusion and was going to explain it to him rationally. However, this does not seem very housemately. 2. What should I do instead? passive aggressive/vengeful tactics preferred. (non srs obvs)

TQC, do you ever dream about houses?

When I can remember my dreams (which isn't very often) most of the ones I remember have to do with:

(A) Being in a familiar house (mine, or a relative's or a friend's), except the house is much more elaborate and stranger than IRL. Except I still know it's _____'s house, so it's not weird or scary; and/or

(B) Secret passages and rooms within rooms (ex. climbing into an attic and discovering it leads to another attic, which leads to another attic...), which are just fun to explore.

Do you ever have sex dreams about people you know? I've had one once, and it was fairly boring.

What is something that seems to be a recurring theme in your dreams?

TQC, I live in the boonies and I have a septic tank. We know it's getting full and needs to be pumped but we can't do that right now. It has an aerator that's supposed to blow bubbles into it so the bacteria will do bacteria-things in there, but it's stopped bubbling. What's wrong and how can I fix it, tqc?

Edit: I looked at some other aerators online and it appears that some have alarms that go off when the air pressure drops below 1 PSI. In other words, time for a new pump, and mom's on the phone with a plumber. This sucks.

Facts: I have a kitty, we'll be living in a townhouse (able to walk the dog but not let it run in a yard) and I've never raised a puppy (though fiance has). It'll come from a shelter so chances are it'll be a mix breed.

I play the flute. I played a lot back in my high school days and stopped for a while and now I'm getting back into it. I really want to learn to play the violin/fiddle. I would want to play more fiddle-type music rather than classical violin type stuff.

If you have played the violin/fiddle before, what could you tell me about learning to play it? Is it feasible that I could teach myself or would it go better if I had an instructor? What would be a good beginner fiddle to buy and how much money would be a reasonable amount for such an instrument?

She was well dressed, we were in a pretty nice area and she was between sixteen and twenty years old.

What would you have done?

What's the etiquette for a returned wallet? I left my wallet on the subway last week. Somebody found it, googled/facebooked my name, and sent me a message so I could come pick it up. Is a reward expected? I can't really afford to give much, maybe $5 or (at most) $10 to Starbucks. Help?

TQCers who wear heels-

What is an at home fix for heels that are missing the little black piece that's on the bottom of the actual heel? Am I stuck attempting taking them to a shoe repair?
I've found heel tip replacements online but i need to wear these boots on thursday and have no idea where to even find those in an actually brick and mortar store.

Re: the lost wallet

Does it make a difference if she already gave me my wallet back a week ago? At the time I had no cash or anything to give her, so I just walked away. Would it be weird to ask for her info over the internet to send her something? I'd send her an e-gift certificate, since I have her email address, but I don't know where to get the gift certificate for...

Writers, what's your go-to resource for prompts, exercises, and the like? I've been surfing the net, but nothing seems to be working out for me.

1. If your job consists mainly of sitting at a computer, what percentage of the time would you say you mess around online instead of doing your work?

2. Can you recommend a good chapstick for me? My lips are dry and cracked and carmex isn't helping. :(

3. If you were forced to choose one, would you rather work retail or food service, and why?

I'm taking a speech class and I need help.

Can you recommend any somewhat funny monologues or movie scenes that I can act out?

I also need to lip sync a song in front of my class. I'm looking for something short, funny and sung by a girl.
Any suggestions?

Antibiotics

Is it okay/safe/effective to use a probiotic along with antibiotics?

Have you ever had any weird side effects from particular antibiotics? :/ Unfortunately the ones I am on now feel like they are really speedy! It's pretty strange, and something I definitely did not expect.

Calling Dr. TQC

My daughter and I are both pretty sick right now, but she has this terrible cough that won't go away. Medicine isn't helping much, and we can't get her in to the doctor tonight. I have her sitting in a steamfilled bathroom right now. Does anyone have some other tips that might help? I'm really worried about her. :(

Hey TQC! I'm pretty new, so it's nice to meet you. I'm tired but in a good mood for some reason, so I'd love to hear some stories!

Out of all your past relationships, would you consider any of them to be really interesting and fascinating, in a "wow, a movie made about this would be intense/hilarious/heartbreaking/awesome" kind of way? Detail as little or as much as you want. :)

If that doesn't apply: What (or who) was the last thing to honestly, seriously surprise you, in a good way?

Hey, TQC, I feel really uncomfortable about the Pokemon chatroom with a 14-year-old-girlCHILD post down there. It's really creeping me out. Would it be out of line to request some TQC reconnaissance to take these bastards down? It probably would, so instead, I'll ask something else:

If you ever have kids, you're probably never going to let them use the internet until they turn like 18, huh?

is it normal/logical to be irritated at a friend who complains about something all the time but won't ever take anyone's advice on how to fix it even though said person agrees that all their friends are probably right?
BLAARGH!
