    I am jealous of all you dudes with apartments. Love your place @Vann Diras

    I am just starting to apartment hunt in Memphis and it's kind of frustrating. I don't want to live in east Memphis because that's all family homes and downtown is for people who make way more money than me + far from work.

    So I'm looking at the midtown area, but for every place that I think is in an Artsy Fartsy area, someone else claims it's a Bad Part of Town. I don't even know, I've lived out in the burbs my whole life. I just want a 1 bedroom with a small kitchen and hardwood floors that's not falling apart. Bah.

    aw thanks for the apartment love y'all

    The squatter on my sofa is back and I'm about ready to just murder all my housemates and be done with this situation.

    It won't be long before I explode and just start yelling at everyone.

  • #pipe#pipe Cocky Stride, Musky odours Pope of Chili TownRegistered User regular
    yell, Dave.

    yell. Let them know your beef and things will change. For the better, or the worse, but at least they'll change.

  • #pipe#pipe Cocky Stride, Musky odours Pope of Chili TownRegistered User regular
    Fuck it, don't even yell. The guy who's sleeping on the couch, one of your room mates is his friend right? gave him the ok to crash on the couch?

    the guy is his responsibility. Say "hey, you know your friend who's staying in our house rent free? How about he starts chipping in some rent money? If you want to give him charity, he can sleep in your room, or you can pay some extra for him."

  • That Dave FellaThat Dave Fella Registered User regular
    I love how my housemate actually said to me "you seemed to be really angry Dave and i'm saying this as your friend you need to take it easy"

    well maybe if your friend hadn't been living on our sofa for the past 3 months i'd be less angry about things

    living here for 3 months, giving us no money and just sitting around playing starcraft 2 all day

    you asked me if it was ok if he stayed here for a bit and I said sure that's fine, help a guy out for a week or two

    nopenopenopenopenopenopenope, he's now a permanent fixture on our fucking sofa and I'm back to where I always am with living arrangements, I hate it, I can't stand the thought of coming home.

  • That Dave FellaThat Dave Fella Registered User regular
    Oh he's said that he'll chip in but I don't even want his fucking money now, I just want him out.

    I gave them a nice solution, I move out and he can have my room and pay them rent. Easiest for everyone because they're so reluctant to kick him out.

  • Vann DirasVann Diras Registered User regular
    It's true that a "fuck you", if it comes to that, is always better than the silent tension

  • That Dave FellaThat Dave Fella Registered User regular
    I told someone else that I wasn't going to move in with him because I thought i'd sorted this whole mess out but now i'm just being messed around.

    "yeh Dave I really don't want you to move out, he'll be gone soon enough"

    nope, I'm gone.

  • #pipe#pipe Cocky Stride, Musky odours Pope of Chili TownRegistered User regular
    tell him sometimes it's justified to be angry.

    you owe absolutely nothing to the dude on the couch. Tell him to pay rent or fuck off or both.

  • That Dave FellaThat Dave Fella Registered User regular
    I just asked him what his plans are for the new year.

    "go see the doctor on the 29th and hopefully go somewhere"

    He's a horrible fucking leech. It doesn't seem to bother him that he's a waste of fucking space an has been leeching off his friends for 3 months.

    My new year is off to an amazing start.

  • bowtiedsealbowtiedseal Registered User regular
    oh yes the best thing about my place is probably my view of the rocky mountains. but it's dark now, so I can't take a picture, and pictures don't really do it much justice.

  • TefTef Registered User regular
    Dave get the guy to agree on a reasonable timeframe to move out of the house. Don't make I personal or attack him for being a no good moocher, just something along the lines of, "hey, when is a reasonable time for your mate to move out of the house? A week? Ok yeah that's fine let's say he needs to be packed up and gone by next Friday"
    The trick is get them to provide the date at which he needs to be gone and don't let them weasel out of setting a hard date for him to be gone.

    Tef is correct. His advice is good.

    @HoA-player, I love your apartment. Beautifully clean and stylish.

    @That Dave Fella, man, that sucks, and what a jerk your housemate is! I'd probably be looking to move myself in your shoes. Yup, leave them with the rent. Good luck finding a place!

    by far the worst thing about these apartments is how thin these freaking walls are. I've been back a day and have already been subjected to music/pounding bass, strange whooping sounds (? for a minute I thought it was a dog barking, but no pets allowed here), loud conversations, and sex noises. I miss the serenity and soundproofing of my parents' house.

  • JansonJanson Registered User regular
    Yeah, that's always my fear with apartments, that I'll get a thin walled one.

    Fortunately our neighbours in the last apartment were naturally quiet anyway (WE were the loud ones - oops!) and this apartment seems pretty sound-proof so far! The other day I went outside and realised the people below us were watching TV VERY loudly (you could hear them from the street) - but we hadn't heard a thing inside our apartment!

    This apartment also has great heating/air con - that and the sound-proofing are making me feel confident for the baby's arrival (I don't want to be the annoying neighbour with the crying baby).

    that's lucky! I wish this building's contractors had put a little more thought into soundproofing.

    I only mind the bass really, and the sex noises when they wake me up. I am petrified of being loud, to the point if i hit a dish against the sink while washing dishes or drop something in the shower I feel really guilty. sometimes I wonder if my neighbors can hear each other through my apartment, and they both think I'm the loud one.

  • JansonJanson Registered User regular
    Yeah, bass is annoying!

    We can hear the guy next door snoring, but it's not loud enough to keep us awake. It's just amazing how deep and rumbling it is!

    sharasugar_80.png sharanomsugar_80.png
  • bowtiedsealbowtiedseal Registered User regular
    the funny thing about the sex noises is that I only ever hear the guy. coincidentally they both go to my school, which is awful because I cannot keep a straight face if I see him. I'm doomed if we have class together.

    oh and @Janson just saw your bump picture in the parenting thread! you look great!

  • ScudoScudo Registered User regular
    I'm quiet as a mouse

    but my last apartment was right in the middle of town, by the bars, so there'd be drunk people screaming outside at all hours of the night

    and police lights shining through the windows as they rounded up drunk folks

    Oh yeah there's a point where I do mind the noise, like when new tenants moved in next to/above me and were hammering shit at 1:30am. But for the most part I didn't mind it where I lived (although that could've been because the windows didn't block noise so I'd hear traffic and cars playing music all the time)

    I was on the second floor and I'd always walk around softly and felt bad if I tripped or dropped something. Although one day the guy from the apartment below me stopped me and said "Me and my mom love you living there. We never hear anything. The people there before you were so noisy."

    The rooms that we have up here at work are built three rooms to a building and the walls are paper thin. It doesn't help that a lot of the guys have industrial deafness, so they have their TVs cranked all the way up :|

    The only the worse is when my neighbour is having a particularly athletic session and I can hear him jerking it through the walls

    This is one of the deciding factors on why an apartment is way down on my list of desirable places. I love my music, and I love it loud. That, and having an area to garden. There will always be houseplants, and indoor lighting, but I need a balcony or something.

    E: Tef ... that's ... ugh
    My ex-roommate, now friend, was so blatantly obvious. His room would always be open, him just playing Fallout, and then he'd shut the door, turn up the music, and then 15 minutes later he'd turn the music back down and open the door.
    I was so tempted to make a comment about it. So tempted.

    I still remember many moons ago when I was but a wee lad and working at dominos one of the guys there was really upset, because he couldn't tape a show he wanted to watch (Back then kids, people had things called VCRs) someone asked him why not just call home quickly and get his mum to put on the tape.

    I can't do that, I've left porn in the VRC!

    All of your apartments are so tidy.
    I get bored unpacking once I stop finding reasonable places to put things.
    So my living room -- which is pretty huge -- has a "Find something to do with this shit" land in it, filled with tons of DVDs, books, and like 6 full moving boxes.

    Ha ha, That's exactly the same as my Living room, and I moved in on the first of September.

    It's that special situation where you realize you've got too much shit and still fail to throw any of it away.
