OK, so I have a really relevant picture to acompany today's blog, but now blogger won't let me download pics from my computer? Only from Piccasa or an Android or from previous posted pictures. Are you fucking kidding me, Blogger? Terri, help!!!!
OK, normally, I leave politics out of my blog. Mainly because I'm an easy going gal. And because I have friends who are right-wing Republicans, yet I love them despite this, but. LOL.
But today, I must DRAW THE LINE AT EXTREME IRONY.
So let me begin. I haven't told anyone this but family. Because I've learned it's not to your best interests to brag about what a big heart you have--for many reasons. But this summer I made a mercy call. My Republican roomie in the basement made a plea to me to help his college fraterntiy brother out who's having a hard financial time, is out of work, and is homeless and is fifty years old.
Because I'm a NICE PERSON and have a big heart, I said sure. He moved into the basement with my roomie who lives down there. I expected, since this new person has a BS in mechanical engineering and is smart, that he'd be here two months tops and move on.
Well, guess what? He's been here six months. He's not found a job. He's not paid me a dime of rent. Neither has my roomie offered to pay more rent since this is his frat brother.
My roomie is an idiot. A fucking idot. And he can't manage his money. Not that I care, but I DO CARE when he pays rent late, sometimes as late as 20-30 days late. Let alone he's a republican yet he mooches off his democratic union who pays him good money.
So last month, I'm getting really fucking tired of this late rent business and never helping me out around this house. Did I mention that I do not charge him for utilities and internet? Yes, neither of them gets charged for water, heat, gas, electric, and internet. Oh, and did I also mention that I have a washer and dryer that my original roomate also uses free of charge?
I barreled down there the other day and asked my original roommate WHY he has not paid his rent yet for January (btw, I only charge him $200). I got the same old bullshit I've always heard, can't get time to go to the bank, etc. Then I give him an "update."
That is, if he's late one more time, I''m calling Harvey's lockshop and throwing both of their shit in the alley and changing the locks.
Look, his friend seems like a sweet guy and responsible, just really down on his luck. And I like helping people out. I'm a benevolent person. That's what I do. I don't don't have a single friend who would have done what I have done. Whatever. It is what it is, and most people are selfish. It's my roomie and his late rent bullshit that I'm sick of.
Then, today, as I was reading on my couch, I overheard, in my small house, a conversation that they were having.
It went like this. That Native Americans were just living on the dole. That all they were doing was looking for free handouts, like as they said "Most Americans are doing." That America was all about getting free handouts these days. That food stamps were bullshit. Entitlements were BS.
This, coming from one roomie who's not paid me a lick of rent since I kindly let him move in in August and I have given him several hot meals? This, coming from my original roomate who NEVER offers to fix my house, never takes out his trash, never mows the lawn, ruins my downstairs bathroom and make me fix it, makes me do everything for this house on my own labor and my own dime then owes me at least two hundred dollar in late rent fees.
Are you fucking kidding me?
I am the hand you are biting, folks. I am the hand of a good Christian Liberal. I am the citizen of benevolence, to which if I kicked both of your sorry Republican asses out into the street, like I should do, you would weasel right up to the "entitlement" plans our government had out there and mooch off them , just like you do me.
Is there anyone, anyone who can see the irony here?
I'm writing down Harvey's Locksmith number right now.
They don't like Natalie's Benevolent Kindness? Well, try our government's "entitlement" programs, or go live under a fucking bridge and eat grass.
I've had it with selfishness and hypocrisy especially with the right wing. I am ready to tell them. "OK, so you don't like entitlements? Both of you get the fuck out of my house."
But I suppose I'd be called a "bitch." Nice. Happy New Year.
