The scratching post did arrive. On Thursday. They didn't even knock on the door. The top of the box looked in pretty bad shape. I think it got wet from rain from the previous days. So the corners of the top of the post got scuffed up a bit. I normally don't have problems with UPS. It must be a Miami thing.
On another note my roommate dropped a bomb last week. She quit her job (of 6 years) on Friday. She thinks the stress from her boss and not getting enough rest is causing her health problems to not get better. She has 80 zillion problems. Her ear hurts, her TMJ hurts, vertigo, diarrhea, stomach issues, acid reflux/gastritis, blah blah blah . Constantly going to the doctor. She's been sick for over 6 months apparently. I think she might be a hypochondriac.
Meanwhile she doesn't take care of her cats' health issues. They all have ear mites. It's especially bad in the fat one. Even one of her ears has scarring/thickening from her scratching it so much The fat one's back and neck was also covered in scabs from her flea allergy. It's better now that she applied flea treatment, after I inquired. She says the fat one is her ex-gf's cat even though they got the cat together and that the ex should take her to the vet. I don't really understand how only one person in a couple can be the sole owner.
So now she's going to be home all the time....god help me. And she likes to watch stupid TV shows at full volume. She's a nice person in general but....I like roommates who work and are gone much of the time.
I've decided that I have to leave this city. I think I can only get a job that pays less than $15 an hour. So it would be hard to afford a car. And car insurance is really high here because the drivers are mostly from Latin countries (horrible drivers). I just can't deal with this 90 minutes each way bus crap. And I don't want to get killed driving seeing as the first year is dangerous cause you are still learning.
