Welp, serves me right to get a roommate from a internet site... Her name's Bri, she's nice enough and all I suppose but she has NO brain. And oftentimes (to me anyway) comes across as rude, self-centered, and sometimes tacky. The fact that she is a part time model seems to give her the right to be a bit conceited. She moved in Sept., and there are times where I'm just tempted to toss her "I'm a model" bottom out onto the curb.
Here's one story that REALLY shocked me. I should preface by explaining that I'm Deaf, and she can hear; we communicate mostly by text messaging. I work the graveyard shift, she's up all night doing God knows what. Anyhow, I was at work when she started texting me.
Apparently... She had gone out to a sports bar in the historical district near my home, and while there met this schmuck who was also a pothead. She charms him into promising her that he would pay for the cab fare back to her home. She's happy with that and they hop into the cab. The trouble starts when they get to my house at around midnight. She gets out of the car, he finds out at that time that she is *not* inviting him in, so to retaliate, he refuses to pay for her cab fare.
FINE. All she has to do is give the cabbie the fare and go home, end of story, right? WELL...
She tells the cabbe that she has no cash, she will write him a check (cabbies are not allowed to accept checks here) and walks into the house, still without paying. I was SHOCKED that she did this! To make it even better... She turns out all the lights to give the appearance of having gone to bed. The cab literally stays parked out there for 40 minutes... then the cabbie calls the cops on her to force her to pay. The cops arrive. They threaten her with jail time if she doesn't cough up the cash. She suddenly remembers this stash of cash under her mattress in her room... goes out and pays FINALLY. As that particular episode ended, she texted me, obviously proud: "I cried my way out of jail!"
Gosh, I just wanted to strangulate her!!!
