Are you still in touch with Emily? She made some great posts in her day...
When she visited this board. She said she's FB friends with Smiley posters, maybe they talk there.

On the flip side of this, women (or men) who complain about men doing this because they nearly fell into the toilet. Itís like, do you not look before you go to sit down somewhere? As disgusting as leaving the seat up is, for the love of it when it comes to a toilet itís in your best interest to look at where youíre about to sit, regardless of the seat issue.

That being said, youíre totally right. I think some university did a study and found that when you flush and leave the seat up, tiny particles and liquid from the toilet shoot out all over the bathroom. Makes me cringe when those automatic flushers in public restrooms go off.

When I use the men's restroom I don't care. When I use the women's restroom I care a lot!

I've been seeing a lot of people mixing up the words "ever" and "every". It's quickly becoming a pet peeve.

Thanks, RR. That's cool if they do.

And the captain's wit is at it again! Grin

Speaking of, well, improper speaking, someone I know keeps referring to carbon monoxide as CO2. What happened to basic understandings of suf- and prefixes?

Not a pet peeve exactly, but someone owes me over $200 in utilities, and it's pissing me off. Granted, he's in a tight financial situation because his cat just got dental surgery, but... this poor cat had a dental disease, and he was feeding him cheap dry food. He never took any preventative measures, and it wasn't until his cat was literally pawing at his face in pain until he did something (instead of doing it earlier when it would have been cheaper and they wouldn't have had to remove most of his teeth?) And now, a few days after surgery, his cat had already gone back on dry food.... Also, he never cleans his litter box.
To boot, this person also drinks on a daily basis, supposedly to help him sleep, but using alcohol to fall asleep every night just causes insomnia and dries your bank account. He's either at bars or downing a six pack (or both) every night. I'm not living with this person anymore, fortunately, but he has literally never paid me for utilities in the year we were roommates... Maybe I sound harsh, but I don't know how you can be 28 and not have any financial responsibility (or know how to take care of your cat!).

(this is not Bubbly Waves, to be clear. Bubs and I had to suffer through shitty roommates together.)

And you've triggered me...

Circa 2002ish, mid-twentysomething me agrees with one of my roommates that his girlfriend should move in. (That would make four of us, but it was a five-bedroom house. Ought not have been an issue.) They broke up almost immediately. They both remained in the house anyway. So, awkward start.

She began using her depression as an excuse for everything. Now, I'm not insensitive to depression: several members of my immediate family have been diagnosed and treated (and frankly I could quite easily go get formally diagnosed and treated as well, but I feel like I get by OK), to say nothing of assorted friends in similar boats. So believe me, I get it. But that doesn't mean you're absolved of responsibility to, you know, pay rent. Or utilities. Or cable. Or whatever. Yes, yes, you're poor because you didn't go to work this week because of your depression. But I noticed the stack of CDs and the stack of DVDs you bought on new release day. I noticed your nights at the bar. And so on.

There are so many stories that go beyond the scope of this conversation, but I'll spare you. Suffice to say, she inspired me to get my sh*t together, save money, rent my own place, and just more or less accept that I'll never see the thousand-plus dollars she never did bother paying.

Mine was kinda along those lines....

Anyway, my roommate had his crazy GF move in and they had intercourse 5-6 times a day. How do I know, the house's paper thin walls and the guy later seeing a doctor....
