For three years I've lived in my apartment. I like it but have to move because it's falling apart and damn near unsafe to be in. But that's
hopefully taken care of, I filled applications out today and hope to be outta here this month.
The advice I need is regarding house guests that I took in two weeks ago. I just kicked out a houseguest that wore out his welcome. It was an easy
thing to do because he was so disrespectful when he drank alcohol, and that was almost every night. And I don't drink, except maybe thrice a year.
Not about him though.
So I took in a couple who are homeless, I've known them for a couple years, they're OK but I don't drink or hit a stem and it seems all the people
with housing issues do. I took a chance thinking I'd be getting some positive karma points.
Turns out, it ain't gonna work, and I'm not taking anyone with me to my new pad except my dog. These guys KNEW how I lived, what lifestyle I'm
living. I don't go in and out my door all night, not safe in this neighborhood.
Anyway, I need advice on what to do when I break the news because she lost her job last week, he broke a wrist and has surgery tomorrow and their
"rent", is good until Wednesday.
Now, I DID let him know day one I'm trying to move, the sunken living room floor should have made that obvious. But SHE wears the pants in their
relationship and stays high/drunk 90% of the time, at least for the last two weeks. Talking to her is like talking to any other drunk, plus she says
she runs this hood and all that... You'd think if that were the case her and her man wouldn't be living with me, one of the few white peeps in this
I guess what I want to know is...when she starts crying and flipping out about his surgery and her joblessness and all that jazz, how should I
respond. They've been sleeping all day and partying all night for two weeks, I don't think she's looked a job and he "hustles"...for money...
They have a van, and were sleeping in it before taking my spare bedroom. I've been homeless so I can't help but sympathize.
I JUST WANT MY PRIVACY BACK. I hate sleeping in clothes. Can anyone help me? How do I handle it? I'm a pushover that hates confrontation and I'm
paranoid because if I piss them off I feel like other people in this area will come to their defense by screwing with me, maybe even worse.
Just so you know, while typing this, there was a drive by, in the parking lot, which doesn't scare me anymore but still, bullets have no names.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
