    My roommate seriously annoys me. We are not friends or associates; only roommates and I don't want to associate with her much (which is fine because I like being in my room).

    I asked her yesterday to call maintenance to get my electric outlet fixed, it's not working. I cannot call maintenance myself because I am not on the lease, nor do I want to be. So her and her husband were like "Oh do you want to test it out with our nightlamp"... ?

    WTF. I know they are trying to be nice but I am not a moron. I already tested it out with various devices before asking her to call maintenance to ensure that the problem was with the outlet and not the electronic product. I am not a freakin moron! I feel so insulted!

    They called maintenance. However I am so angry that they assumed I didn't test it myself. Should I confront them?

    I really want to tell them "Look, I am not a moron. I tested the outlet before asking you. Why would you think that I didn't test it first? "

    OR should I let it go?

    I know you seem pissed off by this

    but lets be honest - its not that big of a deal - you gotta learn that your going to meet tonnes of people who are as thick as bricks - so best not to let it bother you

    or your going to be in for alot of complaining in your life.

    Just let it go! Although you may see it as her being insulting, but in reality she was actually trying to help you!

    lets assume you didn't test it yourself, or you didn't know how to test it yourself: then her offering to help would have been taken as a favour instead of an insult ..

    Forget about it :)

    You need to take a chill pill... total over reacting.

    Do you have other stress in your life that might be causing you to not see things real clearly? Not trying to slap you or anything but that was a total overreaction and maybe you need to take some time for yourself and get re-centered.

    I didn't overreact; I told them that I tested it. This was yesterday.

    But now I want to ask them WHY they thought didn't test it and LET THEM KNOW that I wouldn't have asked them if I didn't test it.

    It happened yesterday but I am still thinking about it and want to bring it up and ask them what they meant.

    I didn't overreact at the time it happened... it happened yesterday. I simply now want to confront them about it.

    I guess I am drama. I'll let it go then.

    I guess I am irritable and get annoyed easily; probably stress.

    And this is the Blackhat Lounge, which has a subtitle of - What's been on your mind lately? :)

    But yes you are right about the over reacting!

    Just let it go man, it's not a big deal. Now if they refused to call them for you, then it would be something to complain about. :)

    Your posting in this section about the RM issue is cool... head out to your local pub and have a beer... put it on maverickmarketing's tab... he's good for it.

    Didn't mean to sound like I was criticizing the thread. It's perfectly legitimate.

    I am a female. My roommate is an old lady (like in her late 40's). I don't care for her or husband. The sound of his laugh grates at me. I only live here because it's close to work (perfect location).

    One of the funniest replies I've ever seen on an internet forum.
