So, we made a deal…he was going to take over paying the electric bill now because of his bad choice, and I would take the phone bill, which he had before this happened
Having a roommate can be good, but it also can be bad. The good side of it is the fact that you share everything, which is good on your bank account. Well, the bad happened recently, which made me blow my top! I had gone away out of state for a few weeks to visit family, and when I came back, my roommate had invested in a brand new central heating and air conditioning system. But not just any heating and air conditioning system, a zoned HVAC system! HVAC zone control is very pricey to run! Fine, he blew a few grand of his own cash to get the zoned HVAC system, and i’m fine with that…but with me having to pay the energy bills, I am not happy! We didn’t need HVAC zone control around here. The temperature control and climate control in this house was fine! I asked my roommate what the point of all this was. He said that he wanted to be able to have the temperature in his room different from the rest of the house, and he told me he thought it would benefit me too. While I appreciated the thought, I really went off on him about the energy use. So, we made a deal…he was going to take over paying the electric bill now because of his bad choice, and I would take the phone bill, which he had before this happened. I figured that’s a fair enough deal. After all, he made his bed, so now he’s the one that should have to lay in it, not me!
