After university I didn’t go home but moved to a massive metropolitan area where houses & land cost far more proportionality. I stated in a 2 bedroom – 75 square meter apartment for 2 years before I buy my own place – 2 bedroom but duplex in a secure complex – 112 square meters with a small outside garden & patio. More than enough for me, my fiancé & our 2 dogs. I turn the second bedroom into my study & my fiance’s studio. So this actually happened last year. I left home at 18 but my father had a massive house. 3 big bedrooms, 1 small one – being the youngest that was mine, 1 laundry room, 1 TV room, 2 dining rooms, 1 study & a massive ensuite guest wing.
She and our boss didn’t expect for me to print out the emails that corresponded with her baseless complaints and that showed her true behaviour towards me and hand them into our boss. Biggest piece of damning evidence was a scanned copy of a document that she made a mistake on, initialed it, and tried to blame it on me. My booklet must’ve weighed at least a pound with what I had on her. They were both so concerned that I’d go to HR or to our union with complaints – which I could have done, but I was only there temporarily and decided against it. I’d scared them enough.
Both of them remained short and snide with me (our boss going as far as giving me dirty looks every time he passed my desk – stopped briefly when I called him out on it) until I quit unexpectedly and on my own terms during one of their busiest times of the year – fall semester admissions. She could do her own work for once and he could scramble to replace me for all I care.
Truth is we actually locked up one of the dining rooms as it was full of expensive gifts & leather lounge suites – also unnecessary. I used to use it to throw parties when I was in my teens. Plus a few servants. I caught his girlfriend smoking in the door ways as it was cold outside. Then they started using the Washing machine and it broke… The noise levels in evenings were so difficult to sleep we resorted to white noise & cutting off internet so they would go to sleep. All whilst both working full time jobs. The worst was being eaten out of house & home & they wouldn’t replace anything but just write it on my shopping list even though I was at work everyday & they were sight seeing. 1kg cheese gone in 3 days..
