    Can't fall out of bed, fortunately. I bought an actual bed. Had been sleeping on my couch for quite a while and decided to splurge on a proper bed with comfortable dimensions ^_^

    I have found myself in the position to find out that I need better friends.

    I'm supposed to be moving to my new apartment (yay to that!) next weekend. Covid cases are exploding in Germany, though not as wildly in my immediate area. So I've been very upfront that while I'd like people to help me I would understand that they may not feel safe and decline. Everyone said "Nah, we good, we're coming." My entire friend group is fully vaxxed AND I'm planning on buying self-tests for everyone.

    Come this weekend:

    Exhibit A: "Actually, I don't have a bus ticket, sorry."
    Me: "That's okay, I can either pay for your ticket or you can come with B who'll come by car."
    Exhibit B: "NO WAY! CORONA! You can come but ONLY with masks AND all the windows open for the entire drive!"
    Exhibit C: "I'm cool either way, I'm coming."*
    Exhibit B: "But you come by train! Ugh!"

    I legit only asked for help for transporting small stuff like clothes and assemble a few pieces of furniture which I cannot do alone. I am already PAYING people to transport said furniture beforehand. If you are that scared just say so and stop pretending. I understand. What I do not understand is that whole "Yes, BUT!" when I already have stated clearly that I would understand if the reason someone cannot come is because they fear Covid. What that tells me is that Friend B is expecting me to keep all the windows open all the time, fully aware that I have asthma and chronic bronchitis in fucking DECEMBER so I can be thankful I had help with assembling my bed, in which I can then spend the next two weeks because I WILL be sick aftwards, and not with Covid.

    Just say you can't be arsed and be done with it.

    As it stands now, two people are willing to help me: one friend who has to take a train for two and a half hours to get here and the one friend I have known the least amount of time. My so called best friends all have found a reason to not help me the one single time I have asked for help in EVER since meeting them.

    I don't know, maybe I'm asking for too much. I'm fine with opening the windows regularly, with providing tests and I am absolutely pro masking. But I WILL NOT be keeping the windows open for hours when it's freezing outside. That's ridiculous. Just say you can't be arsed.

    *As of now, you either have to be recovered, fully vaxxed or have been tested in the past 24 hours to use a train here.

    Edit: Sorry if I am incoherent, I also have a headache *sigh*

    Ugh, I know the feeling... All the best wishes to you, Tiste, and fingers crossed that you'll find something else soon!

    Half my wage is paid by a similar practise of jobs going to people those who have a say know already. We work a lot with universities and research institutes and when they need stuff built, they technically have to advertise it and award the contract to who makes the best offer. In theory. Because government funds are involved. Buuuut in practise we get a call telling my boss to write an invoice about x amount and get busy preparing the job, because once they've waited the mandatory period of x weeks, they'll be awarding the contract to us anyway.

    I'm like: but that's not fair!

    And then I'm like: but it pays my bills!

    I hate the moral conundrum.

    Just got a call that I can have the apartment I applied for (and really, really liked). It's perfect for me. Perfect size, checks all my "must haves", rent is fine, house is on the new side and well looked after, area is super quiet but with good public transport service around the corner. Direct bus connection to my work place (I have to change transport twice one way atm). Landlady insists on only having single people living in each apartment, which does seem a bit weird, but hey, at least it's quiet. Moving in on the first of Dec. So excited!

    I take it your mum is not moving with you? ;)

    This is great news Puck we'll all pop over for the house warming party!

    Hahahah... No. Bitch stole wine from me today and I'm just over this whole thing. Wrong thread, but basically, I have a small collection of wine (a lot of which I got for free at my previous job, but there's expensive stuff, since it was a reseller of premium wine) and have told her she can take some bottle if she wants to, but explicitly asked her to ask me beforehand as there were some bottles the design of which I loved and was going to turn into home decoration once empty. Well, guess what, not only did she not ask (as she used to a year or so ago), she took the bottles she explicitly knew I wanted to keep AND refuses to bring back the empty bottles so I can at least do what I meant to with them to begin with. Like, I can't drink more than one glass of anything that includes alcohol anyway, I'm not stingy about the wine itself, but I still considered them MY property that I asked her to only use after asking first.

    That's after she borrowed money from me yet again.

    You cannot believe the range of emotions I went through today between wanting to smash something because of the repeated break of trust (my wine collection has halved while I wasn't paying attention and there's NO way to get some of those bottles back, they're flat out not sold here) to getting the call that I can have the appartment I really wanted.

    Also, naturally, you are invited :thumbsup:

    I'm in the US (so still with the ugly stuff, but less with ground refusing to still) I'm okay, and it looks like all friends and family are okay (if a little bit traumatised, apparently it's not a pleasant experience even for those who are not injured or have any property damage or anything).

    You know, chat's refusal to make sounds when people enter or leave, or show the number of comments when I'm in another tab is extremely inconvenient. Anyway, *hugs*
