Day 37: One Less Man To Pick Up After...

Got home tonight and the roomie bounced!

No note. No email. Just left the keys on the counter.

It was coming to a head, and I knew that he would leave, but dayum! But he paid me my rent in cash and I'm keeping his security deposit.

It's for the best. I was cleaning up after him just this morning. Hair, hair everywhere. He was the oldest roomie that I had and the nastiest. I told my therapist that people say, "Aw he's a guy. They are just like that." She was like, "That's not an excuse! So do I get to be a bitch every month because I get a period.  Do I get a pass for that?  Cleanliness has nothing to do with gender." 

Whomp! There it is!

So I think that's it for the roomie thing for me. After this bankruptcy thing I am gonna try to move. Tired of this lame ass house too and this fake ass, wanna be landlord neighbor living downstairs. Milk Duds are lurking behind the walls and paint chipping because the landlord won't paint. I need the help with the rent, but I can't do it anymore! I will now have to cover the entire $1350 for rent and pay all the bills. And watch, my light bill is gonna be sky high now that I have no one to split it with.  The rent is almost an entire paycheck for me right now. Damn.

But I am celebrating a little bit, and singing that old 70s tune from the Fifth Dimension. My fave part..."one less man, to pick up after! I should be happy, but all I do is cry, cry, no more laughter..."

Not me though. I'm laughing all the way to the bank on this one.


  1. Thanks for setting the mood & SMH @ the guy with the onesie on SoulTrain. YOU CAN'T BE A GROWN ASS MAN WEARING A ONESIE, DAMMIT!!! lol. Anyway sweetie, that's the spirit. Don't even sweat it. Getting mad will only cloud your judgment and negatively affect your mood. Use the power of attraction. Stay positive and you will attract positive things into your life. Remain negative and....well you know the rest. & being a BITCH around that time of month should be a reserved holiday. You know, men have their vices and women have....periods. I disagree totally with your therapist because even dogs can be taught tricks and cleaning up after yourself is far from a trick. Well, I'm done. Keep your eyes on the prize sweetie. The little glimmer of hope in the distance will soon be a blinding light. So stay cool and keep your shades. You'll need em'. God bless.
