Eclipse Day Sale  
Since this day comes so rarely, we decided to do a single one day Permanently Insane Account sale. Today only these accounts are for sale for only $35. This sale will be gone as quickly as the total eclipse, so hurry!

EDIT: And like the eclipse, this sale is now gone. Thanks for the support everyone!

Update in the room mate situation  
So. I have found out that room mate hasn't been paying the bills for MONTHS.
MONTHS.
She has a $654 bill as a result. As I expected, this month's add in is what I used to use in my old apartment, but because of her not paying the bill, her budget is $200 so she can come even with what she owes. AND SHE WANTS ME TO HELP OUT??
She also hasn't been paying the oil and gas. I TOLD HER ALMOST A YEAR AGO THAT IF SHE PAID A LITTLE EACH MONTH, SHE WOULDN'T OWE A THING WHEN THE BILL CAME DUE. It's how I paid for my heating.
AKA SHE DIDN'T LISTEN TO MY ADVICE, REFUSED MY HELP, NOW OWES A LOT OF MONEY AND CAN'T RAISE ANYTHING AND HER SOLUTION IS FOR ME TO PAY 2/3 OF IT UNTIL IT ALL EVENS OUT.
Are you fucking kidding me?
No.
No.
Uhm? Let's think.
NO.
And now she's crying. Fucking a.
Kids, do not grow up and behave like this. Please.

So this just happened  
I just got an email from my room mate. She can't pay me or my sibling any more for cleaning or mowing. So that's cut out of my income. And hey "I know that we agreed that your rent covers utilities, too, but I need more money because everyone I've spoken with says that my sibling and I should be paying for 2/3 of it." AKA "I'm cutting your income and raising your rent."

This while she isn't cancelling her cable bill. While she still has a landline. In a house where the heating and cooling is being lost because the electricity, the plumbing, the insulation hasn't been update in... I don't even know when. If the utilities are high, it's because the house needs repairs done. And the repairs should be covered by her dad's trust as he's still alive and still owns the house. It was this bad while he was here. Update it and then we can talk about utilities I say and I think that is more than reasonable.

Also her budget cannot have figured into have a brand new car with the associated taxes. And then adding in another car. Neither of which I had a hand in choosing. So yes I drive the car, but I pay half of the car payment and if it had been up to me, I'd have chosen something more reasonable. I'm not the one who didn't budget before figuring in the cars.

She gets more than half of my income. And now she wants to cut it in addition to asking for more money without addressing her own bills first.

I can't...

I can't even figure out this logic. I can't.

Help would be appreciated.


(And it's... This week is upsetting already. After heading into from the weekend. And being constantly reminded that I could loose my job at any point. After the fucking president has declared to be in support of fucking Nazis. And she has the gall to say that she knows I'm already stressed and over worked. If she charges me much more in rent, I'll have no choice but to get a second job.

And I feel so fucking mad because... Ok. Look. I'll own that maybe I should have done some more investigating before moving in, but she's someone I've known for a while and she's known at the theater and she presented herself in such a way that one thought that she had her budget together and her home was a good place to live. And I told her before we moved in that my dad was worried -- what happens if this turns out to not be such a good place? What was my plan? And she agreed with me that it would be okay. She's backing away from those promises and assurances and I'm stuck feeling like everyone is telling me "I told you so".)

Update: she got my email back asking her to cancel the god damn cable and landline before raising my rent. Fixing the god damn plumbing and insulation and electrical wiring before raising my utilities. Me explaining that I feel that my sibling and I are being blamed for her lack of budgeting and planning and her dad not updating the house.

And we've come to near hostilities.

And I can't even bring myself to care.

I've lived this once -- someone only telling others half the story. Refusing to own their own shit and tackling others about theirs or asking more of others before checking their own foundation is intact. I've lived this. Through the passive agressive attitude. Blaming me for their inadequacies. I'm not backing down this time.

(I am so fucking tired of this bullshit. OWN YOUR SHIT PEOPLE.)

(And here's my fucking anxiety attack.)


Last update:

So. I did some maths. Because you know that's always fun.

Let's say cutting sibling's and my pay for cleaning and let's get rid of the car I drive (not ideal having one car, but we can deal I think) and we'll count those as the rent increase.

Gain $330

And if she gets rid of the cable and the landline, she saves $140

Which altogether comes out to be $470.

BUT I'M THE FUCKING PROBLEM?
