I feel a bit guilty about my small outburst the other day on my guest. What I haven’t mentioned is the fact that he’s 25 years old! I wouldn’t be so harsh on him if he was younger! However, I do expect some basic normal things from people his age like a pinch or maturity or a touch of responsibility. Yesterday, when he returned from his apartment hunt, I was doing the dishes. I told him three times to wait for me to finish, relax and sit down before starting his daily report on what happened. Of course without even listening to what I was saying, he kept on going about his troubles. He said that he found the most amazing place ever, with everything he needed and more, the house was simply astonishing. However, he didn’t book it because it was far from the closest tube station! So, I did my research. According to Google Maps, the house is 13 minutes’ walk from the station and there are also 2 busses that can take him there in 7 minutes! Am I wrong to argue with him on that? What was he thinking and he didn’t book it? Then he kept on going that other agents were showing him places in abysmal situation, basements with no light, etc! What did he expect? With his way of thinking he’ll never find a place. This is not Greece, things work differently! You need to act fast and wisely. I’m not going to be providing him free accommodation forever and I fear this will not end up well.
Wow, sorry. That turned up to be my second rant in a row. I promise I’ll behave and stop. I’ll just shut up now.
The weather’s been brilliant the last couple of days. It smells like summer already, although I know this is just an illusion that will go away soon. But look at these pictures I took during my lunch break today. No cloud in the sky!
