Childish Behaviour at it’s best

29 March 2009

Our houseshare is great. It’s fun, the people are trustworthy and really nice and they became friends. BUT there is also this other person…

One of the reasons why our houseshare is great, is that there is actually only one rule: Don’t piss other people off. To me this is the best rule ever as this involves “clean up after yourself”, “don’t play loud music at 3am” and any other rule you could come up with. So far this has worked great. I joined the houseshare 9 months ago (the houseshare runs since 6 years) and I love it.

BUT what do you do if somebody extremely retarded is living with you, who…

… leaves the hoover in the hallway for at least a week and when you complain because you keep falling over it in the dark says: “Maybe I am going to hoover”.

… is so retarded that she can’t even remember what cutlery plates, cups, pots or whatever she used the night before.

… occupies the living room as if it was her own. NEVER hoovering the floor full of  crumbs that she probably produced.

… prefers to sleep in the living room as well.

… never cleans the bathroom.

… never empties any bin.

… never hoovers the hallway covered in her hair.

… always leaves the light on in her room even if she is not in for hours.

… sometimes sleeps with the light on as well.

… tends to cover the kitchen in the food when she’s “cooking”.

… leaves the fire in the living room on when she goes to bed.

… … …

If you confront her the only thing she can do is rant and try to take attention from her by pointing out other people’s so called faults that are virtually no problem.

If you move the cutlery I have used how am I supposed to know it is mine???

Maybe because you’re the only one in this house that eats a ton of brownies and leaves knifes all covered in chocolate? That’s quite obvious.

I have never in my life used the pizza cutter!!!

Yeah and of course you’ve never in your life eaten pizza, especially not the one a few weeks ago where you covered half of the kitchen in flour again.

Where do you get your evidence from???

This is not even worth a comment.

I cleaned everything up I’ve used in the last 2 weeks!!!

Yeah and what about the stuff from 2 months ago that’s still there?

All of this just makes me wonder how you’re supposed to deal with that. Saying nothing results in nothing happening. Saying something makes this person angry and behave like a 5 year old and even though things are quite obvious she still refuses to do anything.

All this is just starting to become so annoying that I’m open for any creative ideas solving this problem.

Stansted Express

11 January 2009

stansted-express

I was flying to Germany from Stansted to save some money. Easy thing, go to Tottenham Hale, get on the train, arrive at Stansted.

So at 4.30 in the morning my boyfriend (who was going to Ireland for the weekend) and I leave the house to get the night bus to Tottenham Hale (£1 bus fare), as soon as we arrived at Tottenham Hale we bought a ticket to Stansted (£26,60 open return), when a woman came over to us looking worried. She pointed out the message appearing on the information screen. “No service… weekend engineering works … Stansted Express is operated by a replacement bus service throughout.” Reading this message we assume that there is a replacement bus service, but after calling the National Rail Enquiries we are informed otherwise. There is NO replacement bus service from Tottenham Hale at all. There is NO information about that on the homepage (says train service is replaced my bus, Tottenham Hale is not mentioned!). We then have to get a cab for £15 per person to Stansted. My flight costes £28 and I have so far paid about £40 for the journey!

I am really annoyed now that I have checked the homepage and the travelling conditions as they say that you can only get a full refund if a train was cancelled. As our train was NOT cancelled we are obviously not obliged to a refund. So they generally take a £10 administration fee, but I am not going to put up with that. I don’t think you can apply this if passengers are misinformed deliberately.

Westfield doesn’t exist

8 November 2008

I just wanted to write a review at http://www.welovelocal.com for 2 restaurants in Westfield I’ve been to recently (Byron and Gourmet Burger Kitchen), but the site informed me that the postcode I just put in doesn’t exist – so Westfield doesn’t exist either. Problem Solved – I save time because I can’t write a review. Done.Westfield Opening
