For my amusement.. you might not think it's so funny...

So, I'm posting the conversation mom and I just had on Skype. We refer to the condition of my room when I moved it. Yeah. I'm definitely gonna have to post more on that (you will see in a few minutes, if you actually make it through the dialogue).

J is the woman who is renting rooms in the house. C and B are my two other roommates (though J lives here too... she was just out of town last week).


Justine Derrick: BTW, J. is back
[8:00:42 PM] Patricia Derrick says: bullsh*t
[8:00:45 PM] Justine Derrick says: OHHHHH
[8:00:45 PM] Patricia Derrick says: sorry
[8:00:49 PM] Patricia Derrick says: and?
[8:00:55 PM] Justine Derrick says: you are gonna laugh your a$$ off
[8:00:57 PM] Justine Derrick says: !!!!!!
[8:00:58 PM] Patricia Derrick says: she noticed?
[8:01:02 PM] Justine Derrick says: I got in from work today
[8:01:21 PM] Justine Derrick says: and J said that B had told her the "saga" (her word) of the kitchen cleaning
[8:01:26 PM] Justine Derrick says: she said
[8:01:29 PM] Justine Derrick says: (snort)
[8:01:48 PM] Justine Derrick says: that it was obviously some mystical combination of chemicals that got the floors clean
[8:01:56 PM] Justine Derrick says: because she had never managed to get it that clean
[8:01:57 PM] Patricia Derrick says: no sh*t
[8:02:00 PM] Patricia Derrick says: OMG
[8:02:09 PM] Justine Derrick says: I was like, well, we did get down on our hands and knees and scrub
[8:02:13 PM] Patricia Derrick says: duh
[8:02:13 PM] Justine Derrick says: I think that was what did it
[8:02:21 PM] Justine Derrick says: I couldn't believe it
[8:02:30 PM] Justine Derrick says: I was like,
[8:02:36 PM] Patricia Derrick says: un-freaking-believable
[8:02:37 PM] Justine Derrick says: wait till mom hears THIS one
[8:02:39 PM] Justine Derrick says: no kidding
[8:02:49 PM] Justine Derrick says: now we have to train her to the dishwasher system
[8:02:54 PM] Patricia Derrick says: ?????????????
[8:03:01 PM] Justine Derrick says: where you put the dirty dishes in the DISHWASHER
[8:03:08 PM] Justine Derrick says: she has a dish drying rack
[8:03:17 PM] Patricia Derrick says: and puts them there?
[8:03:22 PM] Justine Derrick says: (tell me if this makes any sense. B, C, and I still don't get it)
[8:03:33 PM] Justine Derrick says: yeah, she rinses the dishes once, then puts them in the rack
[8:03:41 PM] Patricia Derrick says: ???WTF????
[8:03:42 PM] Justine Derrick says: Then, at some future point, she moves them to the dishwasher
[8:03:44 PM] Justine Derrick says: I know
[8:03:47 PM] Justine Derrick says: I know
[8:03:49 PM] Justine Derrick says: I know
[8:03:52 PM] Justine Derrick says: so
[8:03:54 PM] Patricia Derrick says: (ninja)
[8:03:58 PM] Justine Derrick says: we (B, C and I)
[8:04:10 PM] Justine Derrick says: decided that it made more sense to put the DIRTY dishes in the DISHWASHER
[8:04:20 PM] Justine Derrick says: and to just handwash the "rare" dishes
[8:04:24 PM] Justine Derrick says: like the one frying pan
[8:04:26 PM] Patricia Derrick says: yeah, if it's not full of clean dishes
[8:04:29 PM] Justine Derrick says: and put it in the dishrack
[8:04:32 PM] Patricia Derrick says: no sh*t
[8:04:32 PM] Justine Derrick says: so others could use it
[8:04:39 PM] Justine Derrick says: (my idea, actually)
[8:04:43 PM] Patricia Derrick says: that's my child!
[8:04:53 PM] Patricia Derrick says: genius, she is!
[8:04:54 PM] Justine Derrick says: (I kind of feel like I've been fermenting a revolution)
[8:05:01 PM] Patricia Derrick says: and revolutionary!
[8:05:08 PM] Patricia Derrick says: innovative!

[8:06:45 PM] Justine Derrick says: But I feel like it is J's responsibility to make sure the place is clean
[8:06:55 PM] Patricia Derrick says: no sh*t
[8:07:01 PM] Justine Derrick says: she is renting out the rooms
[8:07:06 PM] Patricia Derrick says: righto
[8:07:19 PM] Justine Derrick says: so I feel it her responsibility to make sure the rooms are clean before ppl move in
[8:07:23 PM] Justine Derrick says: she didn't do that
[8:07:32 PM] Patricia Derrick says: I'm surprised there's no inspection process
[8:07:34 PM] Justine Derrick says: (squirrel droppings, no extra charge)
[8:07:39 PM] Patricia Derrick says: yuck
[8:07:42 PM] Patricia Derrick says: shudder
[8:07:47 PM] Justine Derrick says: I wonder if I should mention something to the school
[8:07:52 PM] Justine Derrick says: I mean, they list the house on their website
[8:07:54 PM] Patricia Derrick says: naw
[8:07:57 PM] Justine Derrick says: so they are connected to it
[8:08:01 PM] Justine Derrick says: well, when I leave
[8:08:02 PM] Patricia Derrick says: you're a short-timer
[8:08:06 PM] Patricia Derrick says: maybe
[8:08:10 PM] Justine Derrick says: a little note
[8:08:21 PM] Patricia Derrick says: but you'd think renters would be a little more particular
[8:08:32 PM] Justine Derrick says: I think they have all been young
[8:08:34 PM] Justine Derrick says: college students
[8:08:38 PM] Patricia Derrick says: when they move in (providing they can actually SEE the place, unlike you)\
[8:08:40 PM] Justine Derrick says: so they haven't had experience renting before
[8:08:45 PM] Justine Derrick says: and they don't know what to expect
[8:08:46 PM] Patricia Derrick says: true
[8:08:46 PM] Justine Derrick says: I do
[8:09:12 PM] Patricia Derrick says: I wonder if they sign leases
[8:09:20 PM] Justine Derrick says: I think they do
[8:09:25 PM] Patricia Derrick says: if so, if the condition of the room is mentioned
[8:09:31 PM] Justine Derrick says: there is a rental agreement that she sent me a copy of
[8:09:40 PM] Justine Derrick says: but it.. I have to go back and look at it
[8:09:49 PM] Justine Derrick says: I don't think it mentioned the condition of the room
[8:09:52 PM] Patricia Derrick says: you know, that they have to leave it in a certain condition (which should be the same condition as when they moved in)
[8:10:04 PM] Justine Derrick says: Honestly, I assumed that since it was more or less advertised through the school
[8:10:06 PM] Justine Derrick says: well...
[8:10:07 PM] Justine Derrick says: you know
[8:10:10 PM] Patricia Derrick says: I suppose you could see it that it could be trashed
[8:10:14 PM] Patricia Derrick says: when you moved in AND out
[8:10:18 PM] Justine Derrick says: well
[8:10:25 PM] Justine Derrick says: I don't have any more squirrel droppings
[8:10:28 PM] Patricia Derrick says: good
[8:10:33 PM] Justine Derrick says: suppose I will have to find a substitute
[8:10:40 PM] Justine Derrick says: ewwwww
[8:10:44 PM] Patricia Derrick says: man was not supposed to live with squirrel turds
[8:10:46 PM] Justine Derrick says: don't even wanna go there
[8:10:50 PM] Justine Derrick says: no
[8:10:53 PM] Justine Derrick says: man was not
[8:10:55 PM] Patricia Derrick says: I could send cat sh*t
[8:10:57 PM] Justine Derrick says: nor was I
[8:11:00 PM] Patricia Derrick says: both mammals
[8:11:00 PM] Justine Derrick says: she has a cat
[8:11:08 PM] Justine Derrick says: cat turds look a little different
[8:11:27 PM] Justine Derrick says: (wonder if she would notice, though, if I left a huge cat turd in the corner of the room when I left?)
[8:11:32 PM] Justine Derrick says: now THAT is passive aggressive
[8:11:38 PM] Patricia Derrick says: I'm not sure I'd recognize squirrel turds if I saw them
[8:11:43 PM] Patricia Derrick says: no sh*t (pun)
[8:11:50 PM] Justine Derrick says: well, it helps when you have the squirrel around
[8:11:57 PM] Justine Derrick says: makes identification a little easier
[8:12:19 PM] Patricia Derrick says: literally
[8:12:24 PM] Justine Derrick says: right
[8:12:34 PM] Patricia Derrick says: anyway
[8:12:39 PM] Justine Derrick says: yeah, anyway

Once I subleased a room in a house with a couple of other ladies. They were all about tidiness, if not so much about cleanliness.

The plates were going to be stacked away neatly...even if they weren't actually clean.

For what it's worth, "man was not supposed to live with squirrel turds" is my favorite quote of the day.
Maybe even "man was not supposed to live with squirrel turds...I could send cat sh*t," if I could convey that it's a third-person quote.
:)
