Flatmates revisited - Capital Adventures — LiveJournal
Yep, pretty much. The flatmate who holds the lease had a talk with her last night and the deal is 'make regular payments of $X on what you owe, or find your room advertised and your stuff on the street'. I wasn't there, but both of them were chatting cheerfully when I got home, so I think its probably sorted.
Call it tough love if you will, but I'm not a sucker for culpable blondness to the point of financial irresponsibility.
With my estimate of what she's earning vs what she's spending, she'll be able to stick to the deal made. Lessons fron the Aikido mat. Let them have a place to fall, and they won't panic and do something really stupid.
