In case you’re wondering, receiving an e-mail within literally 60 seconds of sending one to that same person, and being unable to acknowledge that coincidence or have any other form of communication with them, despite knowing that they’re at their computer at that very moment and probably free, and despite desperately wanting to talk to them, is incredibly rough.
This sentence has been brought to you by commas.
Sorry :-/ Do they realize that they’ve done something similar to you in the past? Roommate situations can be so rough - I’m glad that most of my issues have finally come to an end. Hang in there.
I don’t think they do, but it’s not worth trying to make them see that. I’d rather just be the (sole) bad guy here and avoid the fight. Thanks for your support though, Dan. It is much appreciated. I’m glad yours have mostly ended as well. It’s hard to live with people sometimes! But living alone would probably get lonely very quickly.
We could always swap places. Bella and Alex are completely chill as a couple, and I’m so oblivious that I probably wouldn’t even realize my new roommates were being annoying. And then you would owe me ice cream forever (my favorite part!).
Hmm, do I get to eat the ice cream with you? Because if so, that sounds like a pretty good deal (mostly because then I have ice cream forever, too). I love them dearly, but life would be simpler if I lived elsewhere.
Random realization: I think I’m irked at them in return because it hearkens back to me often feeling like an outsider in my own home, which is how they tend to make me feel (even though I’m sure it’s not intentional).
I succeeded in accidentally ticking off my roommates this morning. Now it’s at that awkward point where I’ve apologized and done all I can, but they’re still annoyed, so I just kind of have to wait for them to get over it. I want to do something to help that process because I really hate making people mad, but I didn’t purposely make them mad, and I’ve apologized, so I’m not sure there’s anything else I can do.
Honestly, even though I feel very bad, they’ve done things quite similar to this to me in the past, so I assumed it would be alright. Obviously I should not have assumed. I know that we have different temperaments, but if you expect me to deal with something like this, it seems like I should be able to expect you to do the same. This is the “I feel terrible that I made you unhappy, but I’m slightly unhappy with you in return” paragraph.
It’s unfortunate that this incident also increased my dislike of living with my two roommates as a couple. I like them both separately and get along with them just fine, but the way they work as a couple, or rather, the way they interact with me as a couple, annoys me. It’s another reminder that this summer, living situation-wise, is going to be difficult. Hopefully the fall will be better.
