Why you should never live with roommates

I’m a bit upset.

I live in a flat with one roommate. Obviously, I pay more for this luxury. Also, I live in the center of Tel Aviv – which means I’m paying a lot. A ridiculous amount.

For the past 3 months, my roommate’s girlfriend has been here every day – well, I see her every morning and evening when I get back from work. I didn’t say anything at the beginning since my roommate hurt his leg and couldn’t even go to work. I figured he needed help. Another month passed, he went back to work, but the gf stayed. Now, a month later I asked him what’s this all about.

Apparently she moved in and gave up her apartment, and no one thought to tell me. On top of that, he called me petty. *ME*. All because I said that I don’t like having another presence in the house. Oh, I kept the best for last – he does not think she should pay a dime.

Yes, you’re reading this right. In Hebrew we say chuzpah. That was a week ago. He told me they’ll figure something out. He has not said a thing to me since, and I’m getting the feeling we’re not on speaking terms anymore – on his side at least.

So I tried doing it the nice way instead of going straight to the landlord. I guess nice doesn’t work with some people. How does anyone think that kind of behavior is ok? It’s beyond me. I’m really upset.
