These are the things that I ask of anyone whom RESIDES in MY home. RESIDENTS being EVERYONE that stays more than 7 consecutive days in my home that is NOT a PRIMARY owner of my home. PRIMARY owners being ME and my WIFE. Anyone else is NOT paying for my home and is therefore NOT a PRIMARY OWNER of my home. Visitors are GUESTS in my home and different rules obviously apply to GUESTS. These statements are primarily meant for those individuals who choose to leach off of me and what I earn.
Be home before 10:00PM and SHUT UP, turn off the damn TV, turn off the damn music, turn off the damn lights, go the hell to bed, and stay there to at LEAST 6:00AM. Some of us have jobs and need to be able to sleep. Only exception? If your no home on time you BETTER BE returning DIRECTLY from work. And if that is the case, I’m willing to recognize a 1 hour grace period from the time you walk in the door to accomplish the above mentioned conditions.
No drugs in the house (alcohol is a drug). Aside from the fact that I work for the state and can’t have drugs in my household, I JUST PLAIN DON’T WANT DRUGS IN MY HOUSE! And coming home while intoxicated, IS BRINGING DRUGS INTO MY HOUSE. They are in you, you are in my house, they are in my house. DEAL WITH IT.
If you don’t go to school you have to pay rent AND provide for yourself. If you feel your grown up enough to quit pursuing your education then your grown up enough to maintain your own upkeep. And if your 21 or older, time to grow the fuck up!
Everyone in my family (my family consists of ME, My WIFE, and OUR descendants) has their own room. USE IT. The other areas of the house are “public” and is not a “motel” or “bedroom”, hence the reason there is NO PRIVACY! You have your area keep your shit in it, and OUT OF MY WAY. That includes your body. You have a bed, it has a purpose, and NO, that isn’t to cover with your shit like an eyesore storage facility. I have no desire to trip over your shit, or hunt down a place to sit.
In the event I choose to host a “family” activity, and you’re not available for the “family” activities. Then you will not be included in the benefits of the “family” activity. No rain checks. No “leftovers”. No “bring me something home” crap. That IS fair.
I’ve raised my babies. No more babies. If you want to take care of babies, you should be responsible enough to have your own place to do so.
My wife AND I, are the head of OUR household. WE HAVE EARNED THAT RIGHT! The very fact you are a “resident” in OUR home, proves that YOU HAVE NOT! If EITHER of us do NOT want it to happen. IT SHOULD NOT HAPPEN. The answer should ALWAYS be NO! Unless we BOTH agree otherwise.
A “Grown Up” EARNS that title. If you want to be treated like a “Grown Up” then ACT LIKE ONE, ALL THE TIME, EVERYDAY! Not only when it suites you. Oh by the way, part of being a “Grown Up” is TAKING CARE OF YOURSELF, AND YOU SHOULD BE DOING IT IN YOUR OWN HOME!
I DEMAND respect for me and my wife. I DEMAND IT BECAUSE WE HAVE EARNED IT. If you choose not to respect EITHER my wife or myself then I will show NO respect to you. You show respect by first off following these rules.
Don’t park ANYTHING in my driveway. There are two accessible parking spaces in my driveway. One for MY vehicle and one for my WIFE’s vehicle. We NEED to be able to get in and out of the driveway. I don’t think its too much to ask for, even if that means you have to walk 10-50 more feet to the front door. I pay for this shit, I HAVE THE RIGHT TO MY DRIVEWAY.
No illegal downloads using MY internet connection. I know YOU DON’T CARE cause it isn’t YOUR account that is in jeopardy, but I NEED internet access to do my JOB! If I do it that is my own fault and my own ass. What I do with MY OWN SHIT IS MY PREROGATIVE. You want that privilege? Get your OWN SHIT! And besides see request number 9.
I do NOT want ANYONE except mama driving mama’s vehicle. You want to drive somewhere, BUY A CAR! I’ve even gone so far as to provide a “loaner” vehicle for this VERY reason.
Don’t bitch about ANYTHING. I’m sick of all the complaining about what has been provided. If it isn’t good enough, GO GET YOUR OWN! BELIEVE ME I WON’T MIND! Get the hell out of my house and take care of your own issues! And this is exasperated to the 100th power by those of you freeloading whiners that are getting it for FREE! To you I say only : SHUT UP AND GET OUT! YOU FUCKING CRY BABY!
I don’t appreciate nor will I tolerate being blamed for your lack of mental, emotional, or psychological well-being. I am unable to control the state of your mind. If you are unhappy then find somewhere that makes you happy. And I especially don’t want to hear these accusations from the same self-centered heartless shitheads that have blatantly made every attempt to violate MY mental, emotional, and or psychological well-being. SHUT UP! If I am dealing with YOUR bullshit, you sure as hell better deal with mine.
My home is NOT a Red Cross facility. I am NOT a charity. Take your freeloading friends somewhere else for a free ride. It’s bad enough I’m dealing with your apathetic ass. I’ll be damned if I’m going to tolerate you bringing in other vagrants for me to feed and support. If I wanted to advocate the helpless, I would donate to a shelter.
This is my running list of my personal requests that have been systematically, violated, ignored, or avoided. It is a personal record of why I have become the person I am. This record is in defense to those whom claim they have no idea why I’m “Grumpy” and/or “Negative” all the time. The bottom line is. When your wishes are ignored you have a tendency to develop some resentment. ESPECIALLY IN YOUR OWN HOME!
Just to make things clear. What I do, doesn’t matter! Its MY house! I have the RIGHT to do as I choose in MY HOME! I’ve earned that RIGHT by providing MY OWN HOME and MY OWN ENVIRONMENT to do as I CHOOSE! Stop using it as an excuse to ignore the respect you should have for MY wishes in MY home! The difference is I HAVE THE RIGHT! YOU DON’T! If you don’t like it. GET THE HELL OUT! Go cry about it to someone who’s good will you HAVEN’T been abusing for years and see if they give a shit!
