Shady ass roommates need not apply

Ok, so the bad roommate story continues. We moved in two individuals to take over the room that the wicked witch of the west occupied. They were a male and female couple. At first, they seemed like they might be alright ( the first day) but we were skeptical because of our last roommate experience. During the first few days, the house turned into grand central station for the homeless, and most shady ass people you could think of. I have been sick for the better part of a week and I would go out to get a bottle water from the fridge at 12am and there would be a group of people congregating in the kitchen. One guy reached out his hand to shake mine and said, “ Hi, I’m so and so” I said, “Can’t I come out to get a drink of water without having to fucking meet someone new”. Shit got old real fast, so we put a stop to it. We sat down and had a house meeting about all the traffic and weird behavior. Things quieted down, at least visually. They would still bring the shady characters around, they just seemed to stay in their bedroom.

The night before last (2/25/11) I began to get a gut feeling that things could get dangerous. I have learned to listen to those gut feelings, so I ordered a 1.5 million volt stun gun off of ebay. At least now if things get out of hand I’ll have a way to defuse the situation. So last night (2/26/11) A real shady character was poking his head around and I said, enough of this bullshit. My good roommate and I called the manager and we told him about what was going on. He showed up a few minutes later with some urine tests and asked the shady guest if he was clean and sober. The shady guy said yes and the manager then said, “ If you are clean and sober, then you won’t mind taking a UA, right?” The shady character then said that that was a violation of his privacy rights. We then let him know that if he was unwilling to take a ua for us that he was not allowed to be here. He left without incident. The woman bad roommate was the first to take the UA. She came back positive for Methamphetamines, which she said was because she is on Aderall. Aderall does show up as Methamphetamines on UA tests. We then asked her if she was on Aderall with a prescription. She said she was so we asked to see the prescription bottle. She stated that the prescription was at her mother’s house so she wouldn’t lose it. Now, to me that doesn’t make any sense. I am on 3 prescriptions that I take every day. I would never think to keep it at my parents house in order to keep from losing them. I call bullshit on that statement. So, we let them know that they need to show us proof that they have prescriptions for the Aderall. If not, they are going to be kicked out. It sucks that we have to go through all this to get rid of bad roommates, but the laws are stringent and we are trying to cover our own asses. We had them sign an agreement that they would remain clean and sober while they lived here. If they fail to show us the prescriptions, we can rightfully remove them from the premises.
So during their stint at our house, we were having troubles with our furnace. So for a couple weeks we had to heat our bedrooms with space heaters. The common areas were cold because every time we tried plugging in heaters in those areas the breaker would trip. We thought this was weird because we had run many space heaters at the same time before. When the landlord came over to assess the electrical situation, we found out that they were running 3 heaters in their room at the same time. No wonder the breakers were tripping. One sign that someone is on Meth is that they are extremely cold. Luckily we got the heat fixed the day they moved out.
