Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Around the end of last September, I talked to a high school friend of mine who needed a roommate. Our agreement was we'd each pay half the rent ($400/month per person), and I'd do the housework and she'd cover the utilities. So far so good.
However, about three weeks ago, when I mentioned relocating because of my job, she confronts me with this list of "back utilities" I owe her, and tells me that I need to pay these off before I go anywhere, or else she's taking me to small claims court. Mind you, its about $700 for November - February. Uh oh. So I tell her if she wants to change our original agreement, that's fine, but she needs to start doing housework before I pony up anything, and that she wasn't getting anything as far as back utilities went.
So yesterday, she tells me I need to have $730 dollars for her, "or else". So I end up telling her I'm moving out that day.
Now, here's the thing:
- Our agreement was totally over myspace messages and AIM logs. She claims I said one thing, I say the other.
- I never signed a lease with anyone about anything. It was generally a month to month thing, but she tended to act like I signed a lease w/o actually signing one.
- Her mother is a Justice of the Peace, and I really don't want to get caught up in an influence power play.
