To say Mr French Bulldog has had some bad roommates would be a gross understatement. I could write a post on each one of them, but that isn’t the point, so I’ll just run by a few of the highlights…
Previous Roommate #1 – Crazy lady who was okay when she took her meds, but when she didn’t, she would have conversations with her cats and couldn’t be trusted with knives. Obviously she was on her meds when he went to look at the place.
Previous Roommate #2 – While Mr Frenchie’s BFF was visiting, and his roommate was at “work”, the repo-man came to repossess RM#2’s stuff.
Previous Roommate #3 – This roommate got jealous of all the time Mr Frenchie was spending with me, and as things between them started to go bad, RM#3 thought it would be a good idea to buy a TUBA and practice it at all hours of the day and night.
Previous Roommate #4 – Completely forgot a conversation about the rent they had had 30 minutes prior. Mr Frenchie had to have the entire conversation again. RM#4 didn’t remember it AT ALL. We’re also fairly certain he was in jail when he said he went to Hawaii for a few weeks. (These are just the highlights, people.)
Previous Roommate #5 – (Or RM#5’s mother) RM#5’s mother subletted her room to Mr Frenchie when she moved in with her boyfriend. Even though she no longer lived in the apartment, she still though it was alright to host dinner parties and Sunday brunches without even warning Mr Frenchie.
Current Roommate (#6) – To be fair, RM#6 is the most normal of the bunch; it was his ex-fiance that was the problem. She’s out of the picture now, hence the “ex”, but that was after the night he came home to find 3 cop cars, 1 fire truck and 1 EMT vehicle parked out front.
Every time I hear a new story about a previous roommate or current roommate (at the time) I tell him, “I promise I won’t do that when we live together.” Some people ask us why we don’t just move in together now, and some of you are probably wondering the same thing as you read this. That is something we both agreed, from the get go, we didn’t want to do until we were married. After all the emergency vehicles and with the wedding getting closer, it is tempting to just move in together, but we’re sticking to our guns. We have nothing against people that live together before they are married; in fact, most of our friends have done it. We just want to leave something for when we’re married.
Have you decided to hold off living together until after you’re married? What are your reasons?
