Tea or poison?

Indebted and So Grateful, Vacuum Out the Fluids

So what's happened with the dispute with my landlord?

We could continue sending passive-aggressive e-mails to each other, or I could just suck it up and pay the bill. I left messages with a couple local housing rights groups to get their opinion, but this isn't worth a legal battle or continued stress and tension. I will likely just pay up for my own sanity and start performing regular drain maintenance with the magic of baking soda and vinegar and/or salt. Unfortunately, boiling water is supposed to be bad for plastic pipes, which I apparently have, so I hope regular hot water does the trick well enough.

I was thinking today how much I've grown up in the last three years. Sometimes being an adult is annoying.

ETA: Holy shit, I just won a $100 Visa gift card for filling out a commuter survey. There, now I'm only paying for half the bill, like I offered to. Sometimes things kind of work out.
