Right, I need some advice lads!
I cannot live where I'm living at the moment any longer. The mess is killing me. There are constant parties going on, and I'm sick of living in this hole! My flatmates plan parties, and then when the flat gets trashed, it's MY deposit that's being charged as well as theirs. They never tidy up after the weekends shenanigans and it's always me and the other tidy one that end up having to tidy it up. I posted a blog not long ago detailing some of the mess, and this week is even worse.
They had a party on Friday night, and when I got home on saturday afternoon it still hadn't been cleaned up. It's not 4pm on Sunday and there's still not a single clean dish, plate, pot or spoon in the flat and and I'm having to wear shoes so I don't stand on broken glass. I'm actually too scared to go into the kitchen to wash anything up.
I totally get that sometimes mess happens, or people are too busy to do their dishes for one day, and that's ok, but this is disgusting. I can't keep being expected to tidy up their atrocious messes. Am I being too harsh though? Is it me that's in the wrong here?
I can't move out of this flat until June, unless I want to pay double rent, which I can't afford. The people I live with don't seem to care about the deposit because they all have rich parents who will bail them out, but I really saved up for the deposit on this flat, and I really need it so I can get another flat when the lease runs out on this flat.
How can I bring this up with them without sounding like a horrible person? They're so tight, and I know if I mention it they'll just bitch about me non-stop! I hate hate hate this!! Anyone got any advice on what I can do here?
Is it really too much to ask that I won't catch something if I cook something in the kitchen?
