And this is when we find out they move in together. Things are going to get interesting!
Yes, the emotional leech Val becomes a physical leech. Honestly, Cooper needs to dump her. She’s been nothing but horrible to him.
She’s horrible because she needed his emotional support when she told her father the truth? She convinced him that is own discomfort wasn’t as bad as what she would experience going through it alone. He helped her because successful relationships require some sacrifices. Also, how is sharing the cost of rent with somebody else leeching?
I can attest to how hard it is to find affordable housing on a retail slave’s wages. It would be nice if they moved in together, if they combine their assets they decrease their costs
Or it does exist but is still occupied or too far for travel by car due to traffic/distance anyways
Vacancy rates where I am is pretty low and the apartments made in 90′s or newer are mainly seniors or 50-plus ones.
“You’re not helping.”
Actually, yes, he is, Val.
He’s opening your eyes (or trying to, anyway) to the cold, harsh reality of living on a retail worker’s salary.
The problem with cheap, nice housing… is that it exists… but once you manage to nab one, you don’t let it go!
I’m kind of in a catch-22 where I’m living now. It’s absolutely beautiful (area, not apartment!) and my fiance and I are only paying between $300=$325 for rent…but the downside is that the town we are living in is TINY (seriously, you could walk the business district in five minutes-ten if you actually go inside the business) so just about anywhere you can find work…you are going to be doing some commuting unless you get REALLY lucky.
Where I lived prior, was not affluent by any standards (in fact, we have a sales tax break in place because of it’s poverty level) however, I would have been VERY hard pressed to find affordable housing for myself as Val is. The upside though, work would be close by (generally) and doctors offices/other stores/etc. would be local.
Would KILL for your rent and commute.
I pay $1200 a month and have a two hour/65 mile (one way) commute.
Try to move closer and my rent almost doubles and sq. footage goes to half. Welcome to D.C.!
I’m there with you James. I’m working in DC and commuting 30 miles/1 1/2 hours each way. Fortunately there’s a bus system in place for my area, but it’s still a drag.
Same! I work in College Park and have a one hour commute. No way to afford the housing close to work and even if I could, some of the areas have gotten so bad with regards to crime, not sure I’d want to move closer.
Cant say I am unfortunate. I am single, but have a studio apartment with seperate kitchen for around 500 US a month.
I live in the Seattle area, rent and commute is a pain. However I am counting my blessings because I can walk to the bus stop and take a 10 minute commute to work. I work at Sea-Tac Airport. and rent a room for $350 a month plus utilities. Apartments start nearly double that.
