Responsibility Blows

Ryan: I want to get a really cool place, ya know, by myself. I'm over roommates.
Me: Yeah, I've never been a roomie person either.
Ryan: And I think I should be able to get a nice place here in KC.
Me: Do you know how much can you afford for rent?
Ryan: Well, I'm not really sure, exactly.
Me: Have you done your budget yet?
Ryan: [Long pause]. Umm, not really.
Me: Well, if you don't have a budget, how do you know what you can afford?
Ryan: I dunno, I was just kind of ball-parking it.
Me: Would you like me to help you?
Ryan: Sure.

30 minutes later...

Me: So, with all of your expenses, it looks like your net each month will be about $27.
Ryan: That's not very good, is it?
Me: Well, it's cutting it kinda short to say the least.
Ryan: [Long pause]. Well, maybe the roommate idea isn't so bad after all.

Welcome to the real world, baby.

I've found that roomates suck, but not being able to buy stuff sucks even more.

TO HELL WITH ROOMMATES! I settle for a shitty 'lil apt. and not being able to buy EVERYTHING I want. I guess it really depends on what sort of person u are and what sacrifices u are willing to make. Call me GHET-TO but roomies BLOW!!!

$27 won't even get you a place in a hot dog vendor's stand in NYC. Well, if it did, at least you wouldn't have to pay for heat...
