RUStudent, while you may believe that business is an evil word, and everyone should be sharing everything they have to everybody else

Ahem, just because I believe the system needs to change doesn't mean you should assume you know exactly what I believe.  :P

At any rate, I would, as soon as your friend mentions getting a job again, say that this is a good thing, since she will then be able to afford the rent she will need to pay when (here you assume a tone of voice that it's obvious) she moves on from your room.

1) She's already moved out, so problem solved. :)

2) What rent would she have to pay? She sure as hell wouldn't need to pay me, and just giving money to the school isn't how it works.

Glad that everything worked out -- must be quite the relief!

I meant the rent that she would have to pay to get her own place.

Glad your problem is solved, in any event.

So how did all this play out?

Oh yeah...well I wouldn't expect her to do that either. I go to school in New Jersey, and I'm from NY.

1) It isn't that easy to find a place to live in this area, and prices are ridiculous (I don't know where you're from  ??? ). So generally, what college students around here do is share a place with about 3 or 4 other friends. Even if she were to find a place, it's the summer. Most of our friends aren't around. Who would she live with? She couldn't afford a place by herself.  :-\

2) For her to actually get the place (assuming she found something available) she has to have at least some money already...which she doesn't....which is why she's getting a job so she can, once she gets paid, have some.
