Back when I lived in a sorority house with 11 girls in it, I had a dream. You see, we had these house meetings which were basically half an hour bitch sessions. We would complain about how no one did the dishes or that the trash was smelly or the counters look like ass or the drying rack was too full, but not really do anything about it. The house had assigned chores for the week and often times no one did them and a few people constantly picked up the slack and became bitter human beings.
But, while listening to everyone yell/bitch/moan, I dreamed of a household where people just did shit when they saw it needed to be done. Example: “Oh snap, the dish washer is full of clean dishes and I need to put this dirty bowl away. I guess I should empty it.” Living with 11 girls, this dream was never within my grasp. And now my friends, I am a part of it. I was just as much of a victim of ‘diffusion of responsibility’ last year, but this year I seem to have transformed into a magical butterfly of chillness and reasonableness.
Like, last year when some BITCH (Re: The cheese bandit) would eat my food without asking me, I would get mad and yell “Bitches” and pull lots of passive aggressive voo doo. Now, I don’t really care. I think it’s because everyone is up front about it and not being sneaky little devils. When I’m like, “Whoa, look how empty my ice cream carton is?” my roommate is like “Whoa, yeah, I can’t stop eating it.” And it’s cool. It all evens out. No one is manipulating each other and being passive aggressive little shits. I kind of love it.
