A trip to the housing office
Yesterday me and my friend Melissa went to our housing office to find out what the scoop was on our upcoming move. We were moved from our housing area last November due to the fact it was being demolished for new housing, and now the area we picked will be the next to go. Doesn't this figure? Anyway I said to the lady who is in charge of what they call the moveover, give me a crappy house, not one of those renovated one's. She laughed, and my friend Melissa said, "no she's serious? ' The housing lady looks at me like you can't be serious," and I say "look lady I have 5 kids still living with me and 4 of them are boys." She still seems perplexed, so I say "Do you know what 5 boys can do to new carpet, new appliances (my 8 year old recently took up cooking), newly painted walls, etc? The whole time Melissa is shaking her head yes while trying to fill out her own information on the information sheet. I think by the time I left she got the idea I knew what I was talking about, or else she was just being polite while thinking I am raising zoo animals instead of boys.
