Well, I'm still too young to be taken seriously for advice on repainting a house, but for school projects, if my group does not want to help, I just settle down and get to work. I just make it clear that since I'm doing the work, what I say goes. Do the same with the color scheme.
Good luck. And I say you kill the housemate w/e dude person thingy and get a new one.
That might be a bit... illegal... :lookaround:
Yeah, no reason to kill a person.
i am in the process of covering my walls and me in paint. this weekend i intend to complete the lounge and kitchen. undercoat, top coat & gloss on paintwork.
i have a house mate and i just asked him to help me. he said, "no".
what do i do?
vote on the poll.
If your roommate doesn’t want to lend a hand helping (where he lives) how does that speak for him when rent’s due, turn the stove off when the timer goes off, tell my girlfriend I’m not here right now….etc.?
You can’t trust him “he doesn’t care”. If you painted around this fool telling him to move his feet as you went through then….time to move him out… or Azh will be taking the garbage out all the time!
On another note: Just curious, what do you mean undercoat (primer?) and then when your done you put a gloss on? You can’t purchase semi-gloss or high gloss paint and save a step or two. Being in the construction business I’m not questioning you, “just interested in how you go about it in other countries. Just a little more detail.
Good luck.... :beer:
What a bad housemate u have..
I say dont do anything mean to him now. Ask him a few more times, but dont really do anything besides that. BUT - the next time he really needs help with something, refuse to do it. Tell him thanks a friggan lot for the help with the paint. But eventually if he begs a helluava lot, do it for him. He will then realize what an asset you are, and will attempt to please you in the future, so he can maintain his relationship with you - which he doenst appear to want to do right now, cause your of no use to him!! (at least thats my guess).
But, if hes a real fucker, just tell him to leave my house forever and find a new housemate.
Trust me, I live in a house share just like you azh, but A. it really sux because one guy has this disgusting dog that pisses and pukes everywere, and spends all day slurping her ass in the most vile way in the living room, B. im finally gonna friggan move out in a few weeks, and C. its totally messy which really pisses me off.
The cream of the crop
