One of the girls has a boyfriend who came up from out of town yesterday. It was established he'd spend the night. They'd share their twin bed. Whatever.
It wasn't that that bugged me. It was eight o clock, at night getting a text asking me to not come in the room until she told me it was okay again, via text. Don't knock. Don't come in. Don't text. Just wait for her to text me. A few hours passed and I got the "it's okay"text.
Was this really appropriate of her to ask me and my other roommate to do? When each paid substantial money to share a room, is it okay to kick us out in the second week so she and her boyfriend can be alone?
I have a few friends on campus that believe it was wrong of her to do that, but I can see where someone would say otherwise.
I found it really annoying because I go to bed early. I'm a morning person. It's well established, and I try to make every set up so that isn't an issue. I fall asleep with the lights on regularly so my two other roommates can do whatever. I don't turn lights on in the morning when getting ready. Yet, because she had her boyfriend over, my needs, that I paid for with the room, weren't being met. And really, one night isn't a big deal at all. I can cope. It was a Friday night. So, I'll give her that.
But because she paid partially for the room does she have a right to lock us out of the room for a few hours, or because me and my other roommate paid to share this room, does that mean she should respect that there are two other people living there?
