I am a truly generous woman plus I also don’t care for arguing with others, that’s just the way I am. However, I had to finally start standing up for what I wanted in college. My freshman year roommate is what most would call a roommate from hell. She was dirty, loud, plus would always borrow my clothes without my permission! All of this was frustrating, but things absolutely got bad once the cold weather came around. My roommate was the type of woman who was always warm no matter the time of year, so whenever she came home, she made a point to shut off the heated gas furnace. Since I was such a quiet girl and didn’t want to deal with confrontation, I wouldn’t turn the heated gas furnace back on, so I’d wake up shivering from being so cold! After about a month of this same routine, I finally confronted my roomate. I started drilling her about how rude she is plus insisted on how we need to run the heated gas furnace in the dorm like anyone else does in the winter! My roommate who is such a loud woman was so shocked she didn’t have anything to say at all. This is the only time I’d seen her that quiet! She apologized plus said that we could run the heated gas furnace as much as we want. She was just trying to save on the energy bills for the building. I am all about being nice to those around you plus I still don’t enjoy argument, but occasionally you have to put your foot in the ground when it comes to proper heating in your residence!
