don't flame, if you do i won't dignify it with a response and I don't give a fuck. Well with the holidays being over and all people just aren't hiring and I've been forced to live off and pay bills with my tips (thank God for the tax free tips). Right now I've pretty much caught up with my bills and I'm just holding on... I put in an application to a Couriur place that pays like 500 weekly and I'm HOPING to be able to get it...if not I have less than a month to keep looking and I simply can't afford to put that kinda cash into gas money. ...I got home from the grocery store tonight, my dad decided he needed to talk to me. Apparently they have a lot of bills (which have NOTHING to do with me) that they need help on, so my dad goes into his little blah blah business shit meanwhile all I can think about is "rent" Sure enough, he wants me to start paying rent by March 1st, all because he didn't want me/I didn't want to work for OTS anymore, he's decided that he needs help although he's making his million per month or so he bragged a year ago.. :roll: He fucking wants $400 a month for my bedroom and where my tv/computer are just outside of my room on the southside of the house. Now I have only 1 problem with paying that MUCH rent as I was set to 2 years ago until I went to school for him, my one problem is that my room where I sometimes sleep and playon the computer/watch tv isn't separatable from the other half (IE No door at the bottom of the stairs.) I don't think this includes utilities plus I have a car payment/insurance on top of my computer and cable/modem bill. Anyway, I've found a place JUST above Brians for 360 a month, all utilities paid which is a great deal IMO. I know of a place just on the other side of New Haven which looks like an old garage turned into a rentable place, but I don't know how much it is or if utilities are paid for. 1. Now my dilemna is is that I live in the fucking basement of my parents house...it's 50 degrees down here all the time...for 400 a month I BETTER start getting some heat in this fucking room. Think this could be used to haggle down the price? I know these windows are old and leak crazy, plus cold air ALWAYS sinks and there's only 2 heat vents going into the basement here. 2. The shower only gives me hot water through a 10 minute shower once every 2 weeks. 3. Kids run rampant through the neighborhood and I'd expect that my property (car) be taken care of if it's parked on their property. 2 years ago I had my car broken into and shit stolen from it and they just said "tough shit." 4. I pay cable TV and MODEM, both of which I use, dad uses TV, mom uses modem...could I pull a reversi on them and make them pay for the TV and half my modem since she uses it too? I mean how fair is it that I take on the 95 dollar burden if they both still use both items as well? 5. Would a renters insurance policy be granted through the person renting out or something I could separetly get? 6. If I was renting could I legally be held responsible to shovel their fucking driveway? I don't think so. Yet they got pissed when I shoveled the end of the driveway and didn't plow the 6" of snow still left in the rest of it. Fuck that bullshit. 7. He also told me that I'd have to pay for rent PLUS "chores" and shit. If I use the garbage can, I'll empty it. if I shit in the toilet, I'll clean it. But I'm not going to fucking scrub the upstairs shit and mop their floors or mow the yard if I have to pay rent. can't find good paying job dad wants rent don't have it wanna move out but can't decide where to go want advice on if i stay what kinda terms and conditions I should sign those 7 were basically questions about can he really hold me to that if I refuse to do shit like that?
