03:54 am - THAT BITCH!
So, I was just about to finish up for the night and go get some sleep, and I hear The Roommate Who Hates Me leave. The timing puzzles me, but I had already discovered (through our patented leaving notes around system) that she was off for a week.

So I think nothing of it,and get ready for bed. Now, the last thing I am about to do is check my email. So I go up to the computer, and it isn't working. I try again. Not working, and MSN has signed me out.

I try to sign in, and get an error - and the troubleshoot isn't working. Now, this is starting to look familiar, so I dig up my instructions on how to reset the modem. And it doesn't work.

I try again. Still doesn't work.

At this point, I am utter bewildered, and start the normal types of fix-y things, restarting, turning the router on and off, et al. Still no change.

And I suddenly notice all the lights on the modem are dead. This worries me greatly. I check the cords, and they are all in correctly, and so I do the desperate thing, and ring that bloody ISP place.

And so, while I stand there, having being put on hold for an epic time, and just having someone on the other end speak to me, what do I notice?

That the little powerpoint, hidden behind the microwave, with a little black cord up to the modem is turned off.

Yes, that's right, just before she left, she flicked the power on the modem. Without telling me.


*is fuming*

I am so glad I leave this place in a week.

My flatmate may steal money, but at least she was polite and nice about all the time I spent on dial-up before our router arrived.

The petty is MAD petty indeed. Tut.

She is very, very petty. And it bugs me muchly.

However, the day she gets back is the day I move out, so I don't have to put up with her for a week.

Thank God you're moving out. I recommend turning the freezer off when you leave or maybe sewing tuna into the back of the sofa.

I can't do that, though, because one of the other people who lives here (who's room I am in, and is coming back next week, hence me moving out) is a good friend of mine. And is also the girlfriend of one of the people I am planning to move in with.

So it won't happen.

Oh well, if you didn't have friends still living there it would have been a workable plan.

Oh, that's mean.

Good luck with the house hunt.

I laughed.

I am, of course, sorry for you.

But it was amusing. In a nasty sort of way.

I leave in precisely one week. So that is good.

Less good is the lack of anywhere to go. *sighs*
