I only have to house my campaign volunteer for two more weeks. I told her I had house guests arriving so she needs to leave the Thursday after the election. It’s been really odd living with a person who only speaks to you when you’re in the same room. Almost all of our conversations have been via text. I believe this woman has a lack of social skills yet she is working on a political campaign. I didn’t expect to be her best friend but it would be nice to be acknowledged once in a while.
This week, I asked her to reduce her showering time, which normally runs fifteen minutes, twice a day. Sometimes her showers are twenty minutes long. I only know this because my office is next to guest bath and I can hear the water running. I received a notice from the water utility advising I was 3,000 gallons over my expected allotment for the month. The allotment is based on a family of four. Two people exceeded the usage of a family of four. Now she doesn’t shower in the morning. I only asked her to reduce her shower time, not take one at all.
The guest bathroom looks like a gay porn movie was filmed in the shower. There are gobs of something on the glass. It looks a guy ejaculated on the doors. It’s either shampoo, conditioner or lotion. She doesn’t bother to wipe it off so I have stopped cleaning the shower. That may be a bit passive aggressive, but at this point, I don’t care. She made the mess so she can live with it. No other house guest has ever left the bathroom so untidy. You would not believe hairs she leaves in sink or how dirty she gets the mirror. It looks like she flicks toothpaste on the mirror. Paddy was appalled by the state of the bathroom sink and mirror the last time he was here. Clearly, this woman does not know how to be a good house guest. I question how she was raised. Perhaps, my expectations are too high.
Since the house was mostly sealed up for cooler weather, I’ve noticed an odd pungent odor in her room. It’s almost sickening. I open the windows in her room when she leaves. I have never experienced anything like this smell. I’ve had many houseguests, but none have ever made the room smell. Double A thinks the smell is a result of her diet. He thinks it’s her nocturnal lady farts. I’m not sure what is causing the odor but it’s another reason I look forward to her departure.
Only two more weeks.
