So while I was reading articles earlier, I saw @Mayiee ' s article titled "Do I Have A Long Patience or I Just Control It." So I decided to share one of my story when I have this board mate of mine who didn't care about her surroundings. Whenever I remember this, it can't help but to get me pissed.
Wanna know the reason why? Read this until the end.
So before the pandemic, I was actually working as an agent before. So what happened is, I boarded at Bolilao where it was 2 rides away from where I work. I am a kind person, a lot of you know how kind I am not until someone will abuse me. Excuse me, we Ilongga people are also fighting even though many people said that we are too sweet. I don't like noisy surroundings, especially when I'm tired because I'm working. So one day, the owner of the boarding house came and told me that someone was also renting. She said that it was a girl, so in my mind, it's fine at least I don't need to pay a lot just for one room with a common cr and kitchen.
Time passed, someone knocked the door and I was just, "Oh good, she's here already." When I opened the door, I though she was a lesbian first because her haircut was for men. She didn't say anything, she didn't wait for me to speak like, "Come in." Suddenly she came in and asked me, "So where's the room?".
I just looked at her, then pointed to the closed door. Actually, the house has 3 rooms and one room upstairs which I am the only one who rents. So he entered, without saying a word. She didn't even bother to say Hi, or like to ask for a name. So I just ignore it like it's okay, it doesn't hurt the mood right? At that time, I had duty so of course I was not at home. The next morning, I feel so really tired because I did a lot of work and fixed computer cables. My duty on that day is around 8pm to 5am to expect that I really need to fall asleep since I feel so tired. When I came home, everything was a mess. The table was not cleaned, she didn't even wash her plates.
So I was really tired at that time, I didn't pay attention to all the things scattered on the table because for me, maybe she was tired and she just needed some rest. And I go to the room, then fell asleep. By the way, visitors are allowed inside the house.
Around 1pm I woke up, there was a lot of noise in the kitchen and the loud laughter. I was a bit annoyed, though. I can't complain since I'm just a boarder too. I went out, I saw her talking to someone and there were three of them. I just saw all the frozen food I bought, and they were eating crackers. I was a little upset because they didn't let me know. she didn't even say hello, she didn't even ask me how I was. she just looked at me and ignored me, at that time I just told myself, "Calm down self, if she ever stays like this it's up to her."
When I left, I told her to clean up her mess. She just answered me yes, when I got home it was still a mess. Everything was still on the kitchen and she was sleeping peacefully. What annoyed me the most is, they used up all the frozen food and didn't even have a piece left. And her undergarments are just on the floor, not even fixed.
I let everything go for a few days, before I go to sleep I eat breakfast first so that I don't get hungry. But the thing is, I cook for her, I even leave a dish so that she can eat. But she's not a kind of person where she will say thank you. One week passed, nothing changed. It was Saturday morning, I had no duty and I was just going home. All trash are on the tiles, and she didn't even think to pick it up. What I did, I packed all of her clothes and put them at the door. I already told the owner about it, and the owner told me to take care of it.
He even scolded me for what I did, and I also scolded him for what he was doing. I told her, I was telling you to pick up everything and to clear up your mess but you always left it to me knowing that I have a job. I was so angry, even those who were on the first floor also looked at what was happening upstairs. They are too stunned to speak, and I just told her that if she doesn't leave, I will burn all her things. I even told her that I will give back the money that she paid in advance. Since I don't want anybody to give me too much stress.
I threw the money in front of her, she didn't react after all. she just picked it up, and she also took her things with her.
After that, I choose to have a solo room only because of what happened. That was too much stressed already and really made my head so hot so I'm sorry about what I did. She deserves it though.
