Shannon and Shandy (whom I call the Tweedles, collectively) are still here. Dawn was going to be giving her a 30 day move out notice at the beginning of March, but she decided that Shannon deserves the month to find a job since she told her she needed to find a job in March. Not that she needed to have a job by March. *rubs bridge of nose and sighs heavily*
Tweedle Sr (TS) has had a grand total of ONE job interview since March 1, and that was last week. Now Dawn is waiting to see if she gets the job she interviewed for (CSR for a regional bank call center). If I had to make a guess, I would say No, she didn't get the job. It's a new call center with 50 openings. You can guarantee that a minimum of 200 people applied, and of those 200 I would say at least half had call center experience. Tweedle Sr has been living off of her daughter's SSDI for the last several years.
I've talked to Dawn several times about setting a firm date on when she is going to have "the talk" with the Tweedles. She hems and haws and makes excuses.
A few of the reasons that she needs to go:
- TS barely keeps her bathroom clean. There is literal fecal matter splashed on the toilet. Not to mention the used toilet paper that has been deposited in the waste basket. And I don't mean used as in "blew the snot out of my nose". I mean used as in "wiped my ass after some explosive diarrhea".
- She refuses to socialize and just stays in her bedroom for hours at a time, only venturing out to make something for her daughter to eat.
- Speaking of food: She leaves leftovers sitting on the counter all day and sometimes over night. They are in plastic containers, but un-refrigerated. Just left out on the counter to stay warm. This is food with meat, sauces, cheese, etc. It's not like it's some veggies that she left out, because neither of them eat ANY vegetables. TS goes as far as to even pick out onions from something that has been cooked. Actually, I take that back, they will eat potatoes.
- She is "broke" but apparently has the funds to buy random stuff off Amazon. She gets almost daily packages from them, and I have no idea what is in most of them.
- Personal hygiene is a suggestion, not a practice.
- Does not help with the chores around the house (vacuuming, dusting, dishes, etc) unless she is reminded or asked to do it. Both D and I work all day long. The least she could do is the occasional dish in the sink, but she will ONLY wash dishes that either her or her daughter use. There could be a bowl or plate in the sink from the night before or the morning when D is putting together her lunch for the day, and it will sit there. She will wash around it. I usually end up doing the dishes at lunch. I don't mind. Helps keep the communal area clean.
I'm just about done with it. D is going to have to drop the hammer on those two soon or I'm gone. I don't know where I'll go or anything like that, but I cannot stay in this house much longer with those two. For my own sanity, I can't. Only bad thing is I promised my next move would be out to the Seattle area, but I cannot afford that right now.
