I’m submitting my bitchery not only because I’m frustrated beyond imaginable, but because I think future roommates can benefit from my past naivety. Not only was I screwed out of my damage deposit (the apartment was immaculate when I left it), but my roommate also failed to pay her share of months worth of power and long distance bills. Please, people, split your bills RIGHT down the centre and sit down with your roommate monthly to figure out odds and ends. And make sure your damage deposit is separate on the lease, so that the landlord is not obligated to give it all to one party at the termination of the lease. The hundreds of dollars that she owes me, I will never see again. You might think someone is trustworthy and a friend, but I wouldn’t count on it.
