BLOGPOST INCOMING: I Moved into a rental place on the first of the month. Housemates are one elderly woman and one NEET. Said NEET has proven himself to be a filthy pig, a bald-faced liar, and a soulless borderline-personality-disorder sufferer. So, after I've gotten sick of trying to deal with him, I've got a sick, twisted idea:
Why not ask some of my best friends for advice?
Oh but I've got a real fucking doozy set up here. My landlord has an incredibly lazy home owning style, apathetic to how bad the house looks and how bad his reputation is among others. So, I've got an idea. Every week, I give him one job. Should he succeed, he's gone one step closer to achieving some normality. Should he fail, the elderly woman and I will do it for him, and shame and humiliate him in the process.
Now, I'll offer a few examples:
>Govind offered to take responsibility for mopping the common spaces for two weeks but has failed in doing so. What do? Give him eight hours to clean it, or we'll do it, take his rug, and throw it out.
>Every day he leaves half-eaten takeout in the kitchen, causing flies to flood in. What do? Give him one week to clean his fridge and take the trash out, and if he doesn't, throw everything out that belongs to him and mark the shelves as each housemate's for clear boundaries to be set, giving him the least space by a considerable margin.
>The TV is too loud, and he keeps leaving it on overnight as he sleeps! What do? Give him one week to either set up a way to watch TV quietly, or get one of our own and reclaim the entertainment center!
>That cat hasn't been bathed in years! What do? Set an appointment for him to wash the cat at PetCo on his day off. If he misses it, call the Humane Society on him and let them choose the poor old cat's fate for themselves. Given its age, most likely euthanize.
The more sadistic and borderline illegal, THE BETTER. Choosing based on either personal interest, or digits. If you wanna double your chances, roll a D100. I'll take questions and suggestions as well, because I want to either force him to get better, or make the house nicer at the cost of his own absolutely minimal pride.
