1. It’s Grand Central Station Here
All three of the adults who live here have their damn friends “dropping by”. I don’t get this. Calling first? No. And if they did, do you think these idiots would tell me? Hell no.
2. In And Out
Here’s the thing. The BIL I can’t Stand dumped his psycho dog on us long before he moved in with us. And she barks at ANYONE who comes to the door. Even if she knows them. Even if they just left the damn room. KNOWING THAT these idiots STILL go in and out of the damn house and set her off. Drives. Me. INSANE.
3. The Phone
I did NOT get a cordless phone so that it could get lost in the deep disgusting recesses of some idiots room. Both the BIL I Can’t Stand and NMK’s Mom aren’t exactly….neat. Add to it that most of the damn phone calls are for them, the phone, when I want it, is in one of their rooms and NOT on the damn charger. Very annoying.
4. Cooking But Not Cleaning
The BIL I Can’t Stand and his sidekick (who isn’t named here because he hasn’t pissed me off yet) come into the house and cook up a storm. Usually when I’m gone. Then, they leave most of the dishes and mess for me. Not. Cool.
5. The dishes
We generate a lot of dishes in our house. Yes, most of them are from me cooking or my kids. But EVERYONE enjoys the food and everyone makes the dishes. But my favorite move is when NMK’s Mom washes ONLY the dishes she and NMK use leaving all the rest there. Essentially implying she takes care of HER shit and leaves mine for me. Riiiiiiiight. *rolls eyes*
6. The Garbage
Again, seems to fall on me.
7. The Drama
What with my BIL I Can’t Stand doing the stark raving sober thing and NMK’s Mom having her latest “OMG No one will heeeeelp me! I’m such a victim! It’s NOT MY FAULT” I have had my FILL of Drama.
8. The Remote
Petty? Yes. Irritating? Hell yes. We had one. For five years, it’s been misplaced but found quickly. Then, people moved into our house. And the remote disappeared. We bought another one. That one disappeared. I went on a rampage and found them both. I bitched at everyone to leave them where they belonged. Then, the remote disappeared again. And the other one was gone. I found one but the other one is still missing.
I’m STILL seething over this. Oh, when asked, the members of the house say “I don’t know where it is” and don’t help look for it. THAT pisses me WAY off.
9. The Dog
When NMK’s mom got evicted, she asked us to take the puppy. Why the HELL she had a puppy in the first place I don’t know. She’s an idiot. The puppy was normal puppy sized. The DOG it’s grown into is a friggin’ MOOSE. He chews up everything (2 pairs of Demolition Boy’s shoes and one of his boots) and gets into the garbage if we don’t put the kitchen garbage out of reach. He’s a Pain In The Ass. Plus, he and our unfixed male dog are doing the whole alpha male thing. Yay. Oh, and when we’ve disciplined the dog, NMK’s Mom acts like we’re animal abusers. Grrrrrrr.
10. The Fights
Two boys was bad enough, but now that we’ve added a third child–one who is not always subject to the same rules–is challenging. The fights have been pretty frequent and very annoying. Especially since NMK’s Mom pretty much stays away until her kid is the “victim”. I know I’m putting her in a harsh light, but she’s such a friggin’ pain.
11. NMK’s Mom’s Weirdness
I don’t understand her thinking. She says things like “If he wants to spend money on ME, well, why not?” Or after complaining about not having money “I went to the store and bought this chocolate cake.” She tells me all the time that she won’t take charity but she “knows someone” at the deli who gives her free food. Really?
*shakes head* Like I said, I don’t understand her thinking. But that’s probably because I was pretty damn lucky in my life and she hasn’t been.
12. The Bathroom
We have two. One is a full bathroom with a shower tub,toilet, and sink and such. The other is off of my bedroom and has a toilet and a shower. The big bathroom is also the laundry room. It’s used by everyone except for me and my husband. Now, NMK’s mom takes a bath. Every damn day. Tying up the bathroom for at least an hour. If anyone needs the bathroom, they use mine. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t mind people using my bathroom. It’s just….A BATH? Every day? Take a damn shower like the rest of us. That bathroom is used by three adults and three children. Yet, I’M the one who ends up cleaning it up. It’s nasty. Plus, NMK’s Mom breaks the shower door at least once a week. It falls off the runner and take all of two minutes to get back on. But she doesn’t do it and neither does anyone else. They leave it there until I come in there (usually cause my kids want a bath) and fix it. *shakes head* People are JUST WEIRD!
13. The I’m Sorry Stuff
In our house, we have a saying. “Don’t say you’re sorry if you’re not sorry.” Well, these people are the reason that saying is so true. “I’m sorry” stops meaning anything if nothing changes. And my lovely housemates are a good example of that.
June 1st is a deadline. And yes, the dog is going too.
And no, I can’t just kick them out.
I might, however, begin some subtle form of torment. Any ideas in that direction are totally welcome. LOL.
