Angry Well, I finally had it out with my roomate

I came home today from lunch with a friend to find my nice, not cheap 900 mghz cordless phone smashed into 5 pieces. Not dropped kind of broken, but smashed, thrown into the floor or wall kind of smashed. I also have a Mirage speaker on a stand with a big hole in it (these were about $400 a pair years ago). I didn't do it. Wasn't that way when he moved in. He denies having anything to do with it being broken. It's now useless.

I have not gotten any rent from him since the first week of December. That was a paltry $25. I told him that he had to be paid up by Friday or get out. $175 plus a new phone. There are also $40 worth of long distance calls on my local phone service. I didn't make them. I know he won't come on with any of this. He just left here while I was on the phone with my mom saying "talking chit about me on the phone again?" Acutally, yes I was. I told him that if he didn't do such dumb chit, his friends wouldn't have to talk chit about him. I told him that since he started nailing this little kid he calls a girlfriend, none of his "friends" want anything to do with him. He went out of here with a bag of clothes in a huff, swearing at me. I told him it didn't have to be this way. If he would show some responsiblity things could be better.

I know I will never see a dime for any of my things or the rent. But, if he is not out by Friday, I will take his things and throw them in the dumpster at the park across the street. Thing is, I just don't have the money to change all my locks right now either. What should I do about that??? I'm not afraid to call the police if there's a problem, and I will press charges if there are any to be pressed (willful destruction, etc...) His ass can rot in jail for all I care.

Aggghh....

Thanks for listening.

Foul call me tomarrow and I will get ya money for a new lock bro. Just get to the hardware store and GET IT!!!!

DO NOT toss his **** out in the dumpster as you WILL be responsible to replace it. Go to a local storage place and toss it in there under his name and then call him and tell him were the **** is.

Sorry it turned out this way but some times it does not pay to get involved with friends. This guy sounds like a duche bag and did not ever think of you as a freind ovbiously. Probably in about 10 years he will realize how much of a dick head he is and appologize. If he does tell him he owes ya all the money PLUS 21 percent Interest. Lastly you HAVE to file against this ******* in small claims court.

Foul,

I dont know you, but I have followed your trials n tribulations with the room-mate for awhile now. Oh so very familiar, I had a good friend/room-mate just like yours several (OK, many) years ago. I let him off on the rent payments in exchange for phone and power, he burned me and they got shut off. I paid those up, he stiffed me on the rent. And lets not even go into the puppy (400.00) pissing everywhere on my new rugs.. Best thing I ever did was toss his ass out @ 2AM one morning. Did I ever collect my money? Nope, but the mental peace I got was worth it.

Toss him dude! Home Depot has locks all day long, and if the total bill is over $300.00 they will put it on their card and do 0 interest payments.. Buy nice locks

OMG! Reminds me of roomates I had years ago. I recently went through the same thing on some commercial space. I started feeling like I was this guy's personal janitor since he never cleaned up his messes. He violated the terms of his rental agreement. I went to Home Depot and changed the locks. Gave him 72 hrs to clear his stuff or he could get it after the "scavangeros" had picked over it out front at the curb. Good luck.

I think there are laws that help your reatrded roomate unfortunately. Hey I watch Judge Judy! Be careful and try and rap it up the best you can without destroying his things - BH

Foul-
Sorry about the fall out with your "friend"!!! By the way, how old is this guy??? sounds like he's 16... Also,, you might be able to have all of your locks re-keyed, which would be alot cheaper than buying all new locks..

Remember-

What goes around, comes around!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
