Roommate didn’t know that you had to pay for energy

Sometimes it can be utterly shocking how people survive to reach an adult age when they clearly should have died off years ago.

I don’t want to sound cold or overly harsh, but it is incredible how stupid humans can be.

Somehow, they continue surviving despite it all. I happen to think that this is usually their parents’ fault for teaching them so little earlier in life. You really aren’t doing your kids any favors when you don’t let them do their own laundry, make their own food, or learn about energy bills on their own. This was exactly what happened with my most recent tenant when she answered my Craigslist ad. I was nervous for a younger person to move into my apartment, but I didn’t realize that she could be unaware of how utility bills work. For the first month that she lived in my rented apartment, I saw that the energy bill was climbing higher and higher each day. I kept providing her updates on the estimated energy bill as I saw it reaching astronomical levels. Clearly, she was using the central heating and cooling system to an extreme degree and had no idea how much money she was going to owe the energy company at the end of the month. I wanted her to understand how expensive it was to utilize a massive HVAC system before she drove herself into a hole. Unfortunately, apparently she had no idea what I was talking about when I kept bringing up the energy bill. For some reason, she thought that energy was included in the rent, and I was simply providing her unnecessary updates on my energy company receipts. When the end of the month rolled around and she was liable for $500 in energy expenses, you’d better believe she called idiot-enabling daddy for help right away.
