He’s done it again… My housemate has invited a couple of people to stay at our house for a couple of nights. Not once has he asked me if that’s a problem, or if I mind, or even just given me warning that I’d have two strangers (to me) sleeping in the house.
It’s not even as if I’d say no. I wouldn’t mind if he just warned me, so when these random people turn up my first instinct isn’t ‘who the hell is that in my house’.
I know this is a shared house, and he has as much right to have guests around if he wants. That I don’t have a problem with. They’ll probably be using my eating stuff tomorrow (though I’ll be damned if I’m washing it up specially for them…) I don’t even really mind that they’ve just spent the entire evening on my Xbox (again, not even as much as a ‘do you mind’). What bugs me is the fact that he doesn’t even seem to have considered the fact that I might mind.
It is tempting to get up nice and early, make myself a nice cooked breakfast, and generally clatter around tomorrow morning and see if he says anything. I may even ‘forget’ to close the kitchen door, and accidentally set of the smoke detectors like I regularly do when frying things.
It sounds a little mean, as I look at it, but hey, we can both be inconsiderate from time to time if we want…
