Well there goes that theory… and that other one too…
Meh. If Val isn’t going to be willing to make sacrifices, why don’t we sacrifice her to the comic strip gods or something? Kidding, kidding…
But hey… does this mean we get a new character?
With some of the stories I’ve heard, a sit-com roommate might be preferable to a real roommate!
Gosh, i know! The thatsmyroomate site turned me off EVER having roomates lol
how about Amber? Maybe her lease is up and she lost a room mate or is looking for something closer to the mall due to gas prices? (BTW I was without internet since the start of Cooper meet Val’s Dad Arc, glad to know things have been going good with Retail world while I moved out of my old place and got a new apartment within walking distance of work and got everything worked out to where I could get internet.)
I had the same thought about Amber, but although convenient, I can’t imagine Val living with one co-worker and dating another…
Though it would make sense to have introduced Amber for that purpose… hmmm…
you know, i could have sworn Amber was in high school. at one point she said ‘i really need to work harder towards that scholarship’ or something like that, meaning she’s in high school working towards college i thought..
I KNEW IT! it’s right here http://retailcomic.com/comics/november-20-2011/
Don’t do it Val… the crummy apartment is waaaay better then getting a really horrible roommate…
I didn’t see a problem with her disinterest in a roommate last comic, and I don’t see one now.
I personally hate roommates because it doesn’t work out well for me.
I had one who I thought would be just fine. She woke me up at like 5 in the morning to tell me about her “boyfriend but he’s not really my boyfriend I mean we’re dating but we’re not together and I don’t really like him and I broke up with him but we’re going out and all and he calls me all the time” I don’t even know what they are. >_> This was a daily thing.
And, honestly, depending on how things work out, it can be just all kinds of a pain in the butt. I had another who was a freakin’ social butterfly and at all odd hours of the night when I wanted to sleep she had like 5 people over talking away and none of them would shut up and let others sleep.
And those were just for 5-day school trips, I can’t imagine how hard I would have wanted to punch them in the face if we’d had to room together for a semester or indefinitely.
I’d rather go with a lesser place to stay than deal with a person I will potentially come to hate in a week.
the issue is Val isn’t willing to go for a lesser place, so people are saying she should get a roommate. Essentially, people are saying Val needs to either get a roommate or lower her requirements.
Of course, I suppose ti’s possible that Val will try and get the Assistant Manager position, but considering she turned it down before? I’d say it wouldn’t be a good idea to go down that route.
Come on Val. Time to live in the real world. He says to an imagined, fictional, two dimensional character.
Hey, room/apartment mates aren’t that bad. As long as they don’t play loud music at two in the morning. Or throw huge parties and then don’t clean up after themselves. Or invade your personal space because they feel it’s their “right.” ….*sob*
How did we end off writing off Coop so fast?
I still think this will end up with Cooper moving in. If not Cooper, then possibly Amber. Definitely not Courtney!
Maybe Marla is talking about another Cooper- like Dr. Sheldon Cooper?
Now there’s a BAD roomate!
I think I can understand where Val’s coming from, roommate wise. I happen to have a roommate, myself, only my roomie is my older sister, but we’re best friends. I don’t know if I’d be able to live with someone else, what with my personality quirks. To be completely honest, when I’m around people I don’t know well, I have a hard time just being myself.
Roommates suck. Val should find a way to live alone because I know how bad roomies are by personal experience!
They run up the utility bills so you end up paying higher for your share even though you barely used any of it.
At least once, they whine about how they don’t have their share of the rent yet and beg you to cover for their share and because “they’ll pay you back”, 90 percent of which never do.
They trash the entire place and either keep you up late at night with their crap or you wake up at 3 in the morning during one of their “personal drama” events. You buy groceries for yourself, label the food and drink marking it as yours, but they f***ing go through your stuff anyway when you’re at work.
If you have your own place, the only utilities you pay are from what you used. Everything is left in place as it was that morning before you left for work, you get some peace and quiet, some good sleep, and you are the only person who eats your food and uses your stuff. Find your own place, Val!
Not everyone is horrible. Its nice to come home and have someone there, even if you’re not “best friends.” My roommate of two years respects my space and my food. She’s never been late on rent and utilities have never been an issue. The only thing we fight about is the dishes. So please don’t give up on the human race juuust yet . . .
Am I the only one who went ‘oy, a baby that young can’t hold that up yet’? :p Mommy-brain is so annoying…
