Leslie is the most miserable person I know

I put a blooming orchid in the bathroom last night as a gesture of goodwill and to beautify the common space. I moved the bundle of cheap plastic flowers. This morning at 6am Leslie woke me up with her bitching through the walls at my having put live flowers in the bathroom. She said "Too bad, you don't like that, too bad." She woke me in a bad way with her bitter ranting, and made it clear that she didn't like the orchid. She shoved the orchid to the side to put her plastic flowers back. Later I took the orchid back to my room. Cheap plastic flowers for the bathroom it is.

I look forward to living far far far from her nasty energy. Such vicious sarcasm and oozing hatred is poisonous to everyone. My cat can't stand her. I keep trying to keep my heart open, to give her lovingkindness. But it is really challenging. I positively despise her at this moment. She will rot in her own hell no matter what I do.

Those orchids are absolutely gorgeous. I took some time to admire them when I was there visiting Shakti. Too bad for Leslie, that she sees the act of sharing the flowers as something more than a friendly gesture. Screw her, and keep the orchids all to yourself.

Maybe someday you can give me some tips on growing orchids?

Far as I can tell they just grow all by themselves. Heh. But yes, I am learning about orchids and most of mine bloom at least once a year,. so I will teach you what I think I know.....whenever you want to hear it.

As for Leslie...
I say screw the bitch. Let her rot. You keep your orchid and keep your sanity. (Of course, this is coming after spending 9 hours with over 3,000 clueless tourists- my patience for nasty people is at an all time low...) Counting down the days until you leave for Oregon...You hang in there, too.

Re: As for Leslie...
Counting down indeed......you are right.

Re: As for Leslie...
speaking of orchids, mine is on it's 3rd bloom since November. Crazy thing is out of control- I love orchids!!

How do you get yours to bloom 3x a winter? Mine usually bloom Nov-Dec and/or Feb-March....once or twice but not three times! You must have the super-green thumb...

the L word
well, I spent 5 years living around her in the barn..and I must say it is continually difficult...to say the least...so I feel for ya. It's almost indescribable...the experience of dealing with ol' Leslie. I did enjoy all those wonderful times on the porch with TG and JS. It was the first time in all the years I lived there that people wanted to have some laughs hangin' out on the porch with me!
The previous tenants seemed to act as though home needed to be quiet as a monastery. ick. quiet is nice sometimes..but come on!
And the ol' bathroom scene is hilarious! Leslie has decided the bathroom is something she can control in the world..it's very sad.
I remember one time having a battle with her on the toilet seat being up or down..so I simply took the seat off the toilet and put it away somewhere! hehe
I was a bit of a pill back in those days. I liked fighting control.
The worst was when I put a hook up next to the shower to hang my wash cloth..and she took it down and put it somewhere.
ooooo how happy I am to have graduated from the Nuthouse.
I think I left in 2002..and can't say I'd ever go back. There are lottttts of other places to be...and lots of happy people to share space with..if ya can't afford to live alone.

Re: the L word
Well just last night Nels and I had some more fun times on the porch and ole L was really huffy about it. Nels isn't good at being quiet....doesn't know how. But he sure is funny. He left for Greenland today.

I wouldn't have moved back into the barn except that I really wanted to live "alone" and that was as close as I could get on my budget.....but I look forward to the next phase of my life....without the oozing hatred in puddles on the floor.

the N word
yeay for happy people like Nels who see Life as an Adventure! yea, I understand about the budget thing and living situation..
that was the main reason I put up with L for so many years...cuz I was insecure about money.
Looking back I think it was all in my head!
Live and learn eh?

Leslie's grave misdoing and the orchid origin
Her mother died when she and her twin sister were 7 months old. She was shuffled among distant family members who didn't want her. I think she feels guilty for just existing. So I try to be kind to her. I understand that she didn't choose this life, it just happened to her. And it is obviously difficult....

I'm not really stuck here. I actually enjoy this living space greatly---with the big EXCEPTion of Leslie. So I post about her instead of about all the good things, but there are good things.

The orchid is one of many that I have adopted after their blooms have fallen and other people have lost interest in them. My boss buys one for everyone in the office each Christmas, and they get left behind and accumulate on my windowsill... They seem to bloom again even prettier after having some time to rest.

personal responsibility
Yes I've heard your rants about people having the right and the ability to choose------and we are in agreement about this. It is unfortunate that so many people feel powerless even when they are not. I take it you're back in Ohio. Is that choice working out for you??
