About one or two weeks before I was to leave my college apartment for good, I found myself out of toilet paper. This put me in a bit of a bind, as the choices where to either go and buy a whole new package of it (which would add a lot to what I already needed to pack up, and which I wasn't exactly budgeted for.) and trying to go two weeks without using any TP (which would be impossible). I was seriously considering making a point of stealing an extra wad from the college restrooms every time I used them (which could have easily gotten me kicked out.) Then, a miracle occurred. One day, I walked into the front hallway of my building and there, on the communal table were a bunch off odds and ends of housewares left by a previous person who was moving out before me and didn't need them, and there, right in the middle were two rolls of TP! I actually wrote a thank you note after I took them.i wonder if they can spare a square?
... And I couldn't call in the landlord to fix anything since, if he came, rather than do any repairs he would just look for thing he could blame ME for doing so he could charge me for damages. He would also sit on any letter for fines or fees (like if I forgot to put tags on my trash bags to pay for them) until they were due, and then demand I pay them IMMEDIATELY so he wouldn't incur any late fees.
