Re: Living Arrangements

Kestra, I don't know. I'd like to think my brother and I have outgrown pettiness. There was a time when he and I fought like cats and dogs, but that seemed like ages ago--when we were kids. As adults, we've developed mutual respect, but I have my bad days and this is probably just one of those.

MacLeod, I don't really get soaked in sweat when I'm sleeping, but I'm diabetic so I have a tendency to sweat more. I just don't feel "fresh" in the morning--bad breath, messy hair, etc.--so I can't leave the house without first taking a shower.

T'Girl, creepy idea, but I might suggest that to him if he keeps running over my shower time.

I would like to add "Petreus' Sex Scandal" to that.

UPDATE:

I sent him a private message on Facebook, and if he doesn't get it, I'll be posting the same message on his wall.

Bro, can you please let me know what your schedule is like for the week? I used to get up at 6:55 a.m. to take a shower, but the traffic on 880 has been so bad lately. I've been late coming into work several times when I leave around 7:30. I have to leave the house no later than 7:15 so that I don't get stuck in traffic. Thanks!

Hey! Shows not broadcast in HD is a real problem right up there with hunger, rape and cholera!

Seriously, the OP should quit using all the hot water first thing in the morning and this issue would sort itself out.

Re: Living Arrangements

You live in a house with 2.5 bathrooms. What's the problem with you using the other bathroom when your brother is taking a shower in the one you normally use?

You sent him a Facebook message after you talked to him or instead of talking to him?

Oh, nothing at all. But I would prefer to use the one i've always had within my own schedule and allotted time.

I had sent the message before I talked to him.

The point is the same, and your pointing out the typo just further illustrates how childish you're being about your situation. You're resorting to social media instead of having a conversation with someone who lives in the same house as you.

Living with people means that their circumstances will change, oftentimes due to reasons outside of their control. You said that you share ownership of the home, meaning they have just as much right to the facilities of the home as you do. Deal with it.

The same reason the Borg didn't use their time travel device while at home, then assimilate Earth in the past: otherwise there'd be no movie/thread.

You just explained every bit of drama mongering in fiction and out.

This. Living with people means that you have to be adaptable. Your brother has just as much right to that bathroom as you do. You are faced with a choice. You either learn to use the other bathroom when your preferred one is occupied in the AM, or you learn to get up and use the restroom earlier.

What's a half a bathroom - the one outside ? How is it a 'half' ?

Yes, post your shower schedule on your brother's Facebook wall. Gooooooood.
