Some suggestions for the comfort of your guest

June 19th, 2007 · 55 comments

First, I’ll let Stephanie in Los Angeles explain the context for this one: “After a night of drinking, I let a friend of mine crash with me at my apartment. This friend, who does have her own apartment in the city, left with me in the morning, yet I still received this e-mail from my roommate later that day. This roommate hasn’t spoken to me in three months and communicates only in email.”

Stephanie:

I assume Whitney is currently visiting. I apologize, but must say that in the situation you and I are currently in, I do not feel comfortable with you having a guest stay in our apartment while you are not present. But more so and more importantly, I do not feel comfortable with you having a guest in our apartment while I am home and you are not.

As I currently have summer hours at work, I will be home for the day at 2pm today. would like to respectfully request that you suggest to your guest that she go sightseeing and/or exploring the city from that time until the time you are to return from work.

As I have done my best to avoid the apartment for the last many months, you have had ample time to feel comfortable in our apartment without me being there. For the good majority of the last few months, the only time I ever have without you in the apartment is while you are at work. Now, with your friend there, I do not even have that. As it is only for today, while you are at work, I would really appreciate your friend not being in the apartment when I am and you are not.

Please understand that I am not trying to be mean, malicious, rude, vindictive or anything of the sort. I simply would like to enjoy some time alone in my own apartment without feeling uncomfortable at the presence of a guest of yours given the light of our current situation. If you’d like, I can give you some suggestions of places to have her visit during the day such as the Grove, Hollywood Blvd., the beach in Santa Monica, Venice, etc.

I’m sure on a beautiful day like today that she does not just want to lay in an apartment anyway. So if you already have her out roaming the city until you return from work, please disregard this email and thank
you immensely for your consideration.

-Angie

ps- could you please let me know how long Whitney is planning on
staying so I know if I will have to deal with this situation again next
week?? Thank you.

Adds Stephanie: “I just moved out of that apartment, and towards the end of my moveout day this roommate took some of my belongings and “donated” them to Goodwill. She said she didn’t think I needed them anymore.”

    Ugh, I hate that shit. She sent that email and didn’t even bother to make sure Whitney was still there. She was already gone! What a bitch. Why do people like Angie even bother having roommates? She should live alone in a cave and not inflict herself on humanity.

    She gave some of Stephanie’s stuff away without asking? That’s just vindictive.
    It sounds like this roomie really wants to live alone. I can sympathise with that – I heaved (hove?) a huge sigh of relief when I no longer had to share my space, and rarely even share hotel rooms unless forced to – but her way of dealing with the frustration sucks.

    when you say she said she thought you didn’t need them anymore, was this an actual conversation or another email? not being very passive myself, i would have replied to her first email by telling her to go fuck herself if she can’t even talk face to face. ORRRR…maybe i would’ve sent out an invite to 20 friends for an all week stayover and cc’d her ass on it…then told her to go fuck herself.

    This reminds me of the time my roommate had friends to stay, she told us about it ahead of time, everyone knew, it was fine, we were in college, it was just for the weekend blah blah blah. So anyways, the friends come and we are all drinking in the living room except for our roommate N. When N came home we invited her to join us to hang out. She was telling me a story, then left the room to go to her room. Some time later, she came out and left the apartment with some things. Didn’t really think much of it. Later, I realized her toothbrush was gone. Still thought … hmm she must have gone to hang out with a friend and wants to drink but she drove over there or something.

    Next morning, we wake up and she has left a giant note atop a pizza box that said “CLEAN YOUR SHIT UP! I DON”T LIKE SLEEPING IN HOTELS!”

    Crazy bitch went to stay in a hotel. I mean, it was the WEEKEND. It was NOT LATE. She did not have work or anything the next day. We probably went to bed at like, 1 or 2 and she left at about 11. Honestly, if she had asked us to be quiet or something we’d probably have gone out. INSANE!

    I got something like this from a roommate during my freshman year when I left my boyfriend alone in the dorm room while I went to go take a test. He had come to visit for the weekend, and I had already cleared everything with her about him coming to visit.

    She ended up having her parents come pick her up so she wasn’t around, pulled all her sheets off her bed, and included in her email rant a bit about how she didn’t want my boyfriend sleeping in her bed. I wish I had saved it. It was hilarious and crazy.

    I could understand the complaint about being left alone with a guy you don’t know, but for the other things — WHAT?

    This makes me wish one of my ex suitemates had actually written her grievances in a letter. She tried telling us all that we “weren’t allowed” to even invite guys to STEP FOOT IN THE APARTMENT for “our own safety”.

    I thank God every day that the girl I actually share a room with is completely awesome.

    Although this person is obviously a little anal, I have to stick up for the need for “alone time.” I was in a really bad roommate situation once where I was biding my time till the lease expired, and every moment spent with my roommates in the house was pure torture. I lived for those few precious hours of freedom when I had the house to myself and could leave my room and use the rest of the house (yes, I was told by one of my roommates that I was not allowed to use the living room–in the apartment I was paying rent for–because his big screen TV was in there and I wasn’t allowed to use his TV).

    Imagine my surprise when I would come downstairs on my days off to find him sitting on the couch in his PJs, watching TV. I found out later after I had moved that he would call my job to find out my hours, and would schedule his days off to match. Even though I was working retail and he had an office job. Just to make sure I wasn’t using his TV.

    I quit that job right before I moved out. Two hellholes gone in one fell swoop.

    Angie was obviously really pissed by the time she wrote this email. Based on her email, Stephanie is lying about having her friend over one time. Angie was quite calm IMO. I think most people who were having to live among strangers in their own place would have had a face to face with Stephanie, that Stephanie really wouldn’t have liked. Stephanie needs to learn some responsibility and find a place to live by herself if she can’t be more conderate of others.

    I used to live with people with whom I shared friends in common. It was actually through those friends that I met the people I lived with. I made the mistake of inviting some of those common friends over, after which I was scolded by the room mates for inviting “people” over without them being present. The implication was that if they (the room mates) weren’t there to keep an eye on things, they (the guests) would steal from them or break stuff or something. The guests, who my room mates had known for at least a decade, had often hosted my room mates in their homes including over night stays.

    It was the most baffling complaint I’d ever heard.

    They also objected to my youngest brother (a legal adult, not a kid) staying with me over the weekend, as he might get drunk, do drugs, or steal from them. Or bust shit up. Because, you know, my family is little better than rutting animals, eager to imbibe intoxicating chemicals and cause problems.

    The only problem I have with this (based on previous experience with roomates) is the *not-asking* part of the equation.

    As a roomate, I was pretty nice and for the most part, unless it was something completely outrageous, I would answer yes to any requests of my roomates (share food? have people over? hold a study session here? keep their side of the apartment messy? SURE!).

    As.long.as.they.asked.

    If they didn’t ask me, then I had a problem with it, because it’s my apartment, too.

    Man, I’ve been on both sides of this situation. My first real, non-college roommate ever (protip: no matter how cheap the rent and how big the apartment, don’t room with someone who is over 20 years older than you and doesn’t speak English well) entirely flipped out over me having friends over. I would have a guest on the weekend sometimes, who would spend the night, and spend the whole time in my room… except, of course, to emerge to use the bathroom. It was this point that drove her nuts. Let’s see if I still have the original email… yes:

    “Your firends are very welcome to visit you but not to stay over night because we do not have guest room for the guests.
    They stay your room but they need to use the bathroom….”

    Yeah, so that was the same email where she told me I had to find a new apartment, due to strangers peeing in the toilet I was paying for half of. I made sure she put NO OVERNIGHT GUESTS EVER EVER EVER in her ad for a new roommate. Eh, she was crazy anyway, for a multitude of reasons.

    On the other end, sometime last year my previous roommate had her British cousin and her cousin’s friend staying at our place, which she’d totally run by me and I’d okayed… but their stay turned from three nights… to five… to a week. During which they ate a whole loaf of my bread. Finally, on a Saturday night, my roommate apparently got sick of our tiny apartment and went to go sleep at her boyfriend’s… leaving me with two strange boys and her sister taking over the whole place.

    After spending most of Sunday in my room going MY HOUSE IS FULL OF STRANGERS WTF, I texted my roommate with, simply, “I am not comfortable with your guests being here while you are not.” She was good and apologetic and chased the boys out to stay with her sister (who they were supposed to be staying with for the majority of the time, but they decided they would much rather take over our apartment in Manhattan than her sister’s in Queens) for the remainder of their time, and replaced my loaf of bread!

    Man, guests! What a problem. People should just stop having friends.

  • #31   garota.da.capa

    hahaha, I really liked Whitney´s comment !

    First of all, I´m not Anne or Angie, and I´m sorry if I misspell things too, but I don´t live in the US, and english is not my first language…so here it goes:

    I wonder if Stephanie is telling the whole truth.
    Sure Angie doesn´t seem to be the easiest person to live with, but I think this wasn´t just because of one night.

    I´ve met people who drive their roomates crazy, and when they finally complain or get angry, these people are like `oh my god ! she went nuts because of this, can you believe it?´

    And I can understand that we all want some time alone, I live in one of the biggest cities in the world and when I get home, I just want a break from all the noise and the crowded places, so in that sense, I can understand what Angie says, that is difficult (not impossible, but maybe uncomfortable) to come home and find a stranger, (not stranger like you´ve never seen her before, I mean she´s not someone you are used to see) so maybe you won´t feel as comfortable as you would if you were alone or with your roomate who has probably seen you in your worst days.

    So anyway, I just felt like Stephanie didn´t write everything that was behind and drove Angie to write this letter (but I didn´t think Angie was rude or crazy either)

    And if in reality Angie went nuts just because Stephanie invited her friend just one time, then I apologize and that Angie is the world´s craziests b*tch who has ever lived and she should be burned alive !!!

    hahaha. (not really, she sould just try to get a place to live by herself)

  • #32   Stephanie

    Hello everyone! It’s Stephanie from the email. It’s been great reading everyone’s comments, very therapeutic really. Here’s some more info for you:

    The “situation” Angie is referring to is the fact that we hadn’t been speaking for months. Angie literally quit speaking to me overnight for reasons I to this day don’t know. This is a tactic she had used before when mad at me, and usually I would ask her what was wrong and try to fix the situation. After two years, I was sick of it and wanted to see how long it would take her to confront me. I didn’t think she’d hold out for very long, seeing as we were friends, but then days turned into weeks turned into months. There must be some reason for her to be mad, but I still do not know what it is.

    As far as guests go, during the period we weren’t speaking, her mother came to visit for a couple of days, and just a couple of weeks before this email, her friend from out of town came to visit for a couple of days. She would have friends spend the night after going out drinking on a regular basis. None of this was a problem with me, she was after all paying rent for the place. I felt I was entitled to have a guest, seeing as I paid rent too.

    I’m not trying to say I was a perfect roommate cause I’m human and everyone who ever tries to share space with another person is going to annoy the other. But I didn’t do things to intentionally set her off so I’m not quite sure why she had to write me out of her life… and steal my stuff.

    On the plus side, I’ve been in the new apartment for almost a week and it’s amazing!!! I love going home now!

    I think my favorite part of the email is the suggestions Angie had for places to go visit…!

    I have had a couple crazy roommates too. One in particular was sooo strange, he had to be in control of everything. Every morning, I had to be out of the shower by 7:10 or he would stomp around like I was making him later with every passing second. One day, my clock said 7:13 when I got out. He yelled through my door that his clock said 7:20 and he was right because his was synced to the atomic clock in Colorado!! Are you kidding?! I looked it up and his was at least 5 minutes fast. :P Hehe.

    Ack! I can’t believe I forgot my best roommate/friends-coming-over story. :) One night in college, in the dorm, I was alone in the room I shared with a girl and HER friends came over. I think there were 4-5 of them, mostly guys I think. They were just looking for her, and ended up staying to chat because they were just nice guys. One of them bumped her mouse for her computer somehow, and she was on her boyfriend’s computer and noticed her MSN status change from Away to Available. So she came back because she thought someone was messing with her computer. When she came in, she got mad at ME for letting HER friends sit in her desk chair and on her bed. Where else are 4 guys going to sit? Not all on my bed! She did end up apologizing though.

    I’m glad you found a great apartment, Stephanie! :) It makes a huge difference to live somewhere you enjoy.

    I’ve been on both ends of this one. A couple years ago my boyfriend was living with what was at the time a ‘good friend ‘ of his. However the friend later informed him that I was not allowed to spend the night even though my BF paid over half of the mortgage, and I bought groceries and cleaned the house (dishes/bathroom ect) because according to the homeowner/friend I was not paying utilities and therefor could not spend the night because I would need to use the bathroom while I stayed. HIS girlfriend could stay though.

    Then I had a roommate just last year who allowed people to let themselves into our home when she was not there and just ‘wait’ for her. We often found them watching our tv (she did not pay for cable) using my phone (again not something she paid a dime for…and she ran up long distance charges on it!!!) and one time our other roommate even found one of the guys in the kitchen in his boxers. He had decided to help by doing the dishes and didn’t want to get his clothes wet?!!?!?
    Not to mention the time a guy let himself into my basement bedroom at 2am thinkin it was her 2nd story bedroom!?!?

    The email was harsh. But who knows how many other emails there were prior to that and the entire situation.
    My last roommate went from best friend to insane roomate+5!
    Things started off great. We had rules from the start: no parties during the week, no smoking inside, and no pets. It was what we jointly decided. And had great weekend parties and hung out all the time!
    After 4 months i come home to find he’d moved his ex and her dog in. It would have been ok, if the dog had been trained to go outside and cleaned up after it. But after stepping in multiple puddles and a pile…I left a note sayingthat the dog had to go or stay outside. No worries, he kicked her out 2 weeks later, b/c his pregnant girlfriend needed somewhere to stay. He then moved in a friend, the friends 17y/o brother and that guys friend. They didnt have a jobs, and only one car between the 4 extra people. So now there were 6 people living there. 2 paying for everything. He didnt feel they should have to split the bills, even though they literally had the heat at 90 every night for the month they were there and ate All my food!

    The last straw was when i walked in with my boyfriend at the time (who lived at his own place) and the 17y/o stanger was home alone with His girlfriend making out on my couch!
    I emailed my roommate a simialar message about having people pay if they were staying more then a week, and not being home without him and leaving the front door wide open. (so they could get back in when no one was home.)
    He flipped and started having parties everynight, knowing i had to be up at 6am everyday. Imagine marachi music blaring all night. I had to move out because my stuff was all disapearing, and i couldnt sleep or be home without strange guys being there, since the 5 of them didnt ever leave.

    I got stuck with a $300 in electric bills plus a months rent when they dissapeared one day. The landlord and i have never seen nor heard from any of them since. No forwarding address and they literally sold 2 phones and phone numbers! Crazy.

    Good for you, Stephanie — enjoy the new place :-)

    In college, I inadvertently set-up my THEN best friend with a good guy friend of mine. My friend and I started sharing a dorm room, and then they started dating… and of course, he started visiting and staying over every weekend. That was fine, they went out, we did stuff together since we were all friends. Then it went from Thursday – Sunday. Then Thursday – Mon. Then it was basically any time he wasn’t working, he was in our room. I think I even woke up in the middle of the night and they were “going at it”, to put it nicely.

    Needless to say, long story short, I am no longer friends with them. We even ended up switching roommates within our suite a few months into that school year because we just couldn’t live together. I didn’t sign up for a triple!!

    I think Stephanie got what she deserved. She seems much too hung up about this to be the -innocent- party. I hate when roommates have guests over when they aren’t there. And when I read Angie ‘donated’ her belongings, I had to laugh. Stephanie, I am sure you read this like every day, stop being so anal. Grow up and take responsibility before more people take your stuff.

    First, let me congratulate you all on putting intellegent sentences together with proper spelling and punctuation. That is so rare on the internet today.
    I had a roommate, we took the apartment together, but the lease was in his name. One day, he decided to take in three more roomies without consulting me. I had to leave the house just to get some peace! When “Ira” suddenly told me he was moving out in three days I was thrilled. The landlady said I could stay. Later, I talked to one of those extra roomies who told me they all had been paying rent to him, while I paid half the rent. He took the dog, too, and she was half mine by agreement when we got her.
    Bottom line, If you can’t afford your own place, rent a room and understand the rules.

    Choose roommates carefully! Having lived with many people during college, I can only say that I liked living with one or two of them. I am female, I clean up after myself, and I would have expected that girls would be cleaner roommates than boys, but this is not true. I have lived with one girl in particular, who was a slob. I would say things like, “wow, it would be nice if I wasn’t the only one who ever cleaned the ENTIRE house…” or “I was going to go out tonight, but the house SURE needs cleaned…” She didn’t get it. Slob.

    About Stephanie and Angie: I typically ignore the uninvited/unwanted guest for a few days. Maybe even a couple of weeks. At the 3-4 week range, I submit a utilities and rent invoice to the guest. If you live here, you can pay the bills, just like I do. Maybe that’s passive aggressive, but I don’t mind sharing the cable/internet bill, etc.

    Mojojojo does not wish for you to leave your guest in Mojojojo’s apartment because Mojojojo wants time for himself and does not want the apartment to be inhabited by a guest in Mojojojo’s apartment!

    Over the next few years, Lisa became increasingly anxious to slim down.
    “I felt helpless because I wanted to exercise, but it was hard to find time,” she says.
    Even after what happened with fen-phen, she experimented with diet pills – but, she says,
    “nothing made me feel healthy or helped me lose much weight.” Finally, one morning in January 2004,
    Lisa had a moment of clarity.

    not overly aggressive, but definitely sociopathic. why not come out of your hole and say “Hello”? Maybe Angie would be friends with new visitor? Jeez what a Loon.

    Gotta say Team Angie even though she writes as if she’s high-strung. There is a long back story to this or they wouldn’t have been communicating via email for 3 months. Angie probably had had enough with Stephanie.

    I don’t blame her wanting some damn alone time in her own place from time to time, and if that isn’t possible because of the realities of having a roommate, she sure as hell shouldn’t have to spend it with unknown friends while Stephanie is gone. Now, that didn’t occur in this instance, but I’m inferring from the note it must have happened in the past, because otherwise, that’s mighty big jump to have made. Why even bring that up if this “first time and only one night” guest had left with Stephanie in the morning? Because it’s likely happened before.

    Keep your unnanounced and unplanned guests in your room and take ‘em with you when you go. I agree with Angie, and if that makes me Angie in disquise, so be it.

    Angie WOULD be an AOL user, wouldn’t she?

    i’ve had a roommate like angie- complete beyotch. i was lucky enough to escape as well. she would be in her room, right next to mine, both doors open, and would text me about something i did wrong. being a particular fan of humiliation and passive aggression, i would simply yell out my response for her to hear. and she would continue to text.

    also, angie seems to need a thesaurus- redundancy is not an art, lady.
