So you may know my roommate and I are not on particularly great terms (see older thread on the boyfriend issues). She seems to find everything that I do a problem, which doesn't bode well for either of us. The newest of which was a note on our whiteboard when I returned this evening after a day of errands saying "please don't sit on the couch. I'm washing the cushions since you have been sick." Backstory - I have a cold. Not some deadly illness. I have not been vomiting. I have not been blowing my nose into her pillows. No fever anymore, just a cough and a stuffy nose. I've just been sitting on the couch to watch TV/do work and yesterday I took a nap there since the weather was nice and I could open the screen door to the balcony (with my own pillow for my head). Other backstory is that the couch is hers, but like all furniture in the common areas of the apartment, has been (or so I thought?) assumed to be shared while we live there. I told her (via whiteboard... sadly how we've come to communicate lately) that her request was absurd, but that I would make sure to sit on a sheet on the couch until I get better. I then left the apartment and haven't been back to see her response (which I am 99% positive will be a pissy retort, most likely regarding the fact that the couch is hers and that she is especially sensitive because she has asthma ). Keep in mind she also panicked when my boyfriend was diagnosed with mono and insisted that we both eat off of disposable dishes and silverware until he recovered (never mind that we have a dishwasher :rofl1... and I think she's unaware that we're both periodically infectious having been previously affected, but I'm not about to tell her that So honest opinions. Does she have the right to kick me off the couch (which means no watching TV unless I sit on the floor 3 feet away from the screen) while I have a cold? I really don't want her to get sick... but seriously!?!? I'm so ready to get out of this place! I swear I'm not an awful roommate, but she makes me feel like I am sometimes!
