Hey guys, I need some advice on how to deal with living with other people, though I think most of this is just a vent. I share a house with three others. Me (a guy), 2 blokes and a girl. All the girl ever does is complain. She puts so many restrictions on us it's becomeing really unfair. It summer in Australia and its really hot. Let me run through the dos and donts of sharing the house... We cant use fans because they make too much noise and she cant sleep....neither can we cause its too hot. She lives in a downstairs room and apparently the fan vibreates through the floor and keeps her up. So one day when theres no one home I take the fan off its base, wrap it in a towel, put it on a padded chair and sit the chair on another towel, go down stairs and strain my ears trying to hear it. Not a peep. But she stilled complains about it. So no fan...except in her room. Which is fine. Oh no walking either. Shoes off at the door, which is fine really. But keep the socks. Use them to slide/skie accross the floor with out lifting your feet. Moon walking is acceptable. Dishwasher cant be run at night and keep showers and toilet flushes to a minimum. Pipes make noise. Apparently. Computers must be muted. No exscuses if you boot it up and Windows makes any dinging noises. Same goes with mobile phones. Oh, and TV. And speaking of phones, anything but whispered conversations are taboo. No office chairs. You know the ones you sit on at your desk to study. Wheels make to much noise. But be careful when you take out that rickity folding chair. Lift when you pull it away from the table, not drag. Oil regularly. Oh, heres an important one. No sex. Unless you have the mattress on the floor and your passion is displayed silently. Note mattress must not touch walls. No shift work. Found that night job that fits nicely around study during the day? Too bad. Same goes for returning from nights out on the town. Well, whats the obvious solution? Why swap rooms with some one upstairs of course! But no. She wont. Moving the 4 or so pieces of furniture from one room to another is by far too stressful. It might solicite an angry call from her father. Again. Ah that felt good. The other guys in the house are at their wits end. I feel im the only one keeping the piece. I like the girl...lets call her 'Jane'...but these demands have so totally impacted on on lives. I really do realise the importance of getting a good nights sleep, I work 12 hour shifts, but we live here too. Its a SHAREhouse. However, whenever any of us try and explain this to her or tries to reach a compromise she plays the victim and says we are attacking her. I dont get how to deal with her, its not fair. Any one got any advice for me? Please and thank you!!
