2 years ago, one of my uncles and I decided to live together for money savings. Let's name him George. I was 21 and he was 43.
Unfortunately I immediately realized he wasn't the person I thought he was. George was selfish; he never shared anything and never did me a favor. He wasn't cleaning up his mess, wasn't doing his dishes and sometimes was too lazy to flush the toilet. I'm not exaggerating! George was also the most negative person in my life. Every time, I had to apply for a job, scholarship, student loans etc... He was telling me that I'll get a negative response. He liked to argue too, his attitude was something like "I'm older than you so I can do whatever I want and I'm always right". Then I gave him the silence treatment because he wasn't pleasant at all. It was awkward living with someone without talking to each other. His reaction to the silence treatment was to call my parents and tell them that I was rude and I was ignoring him. I'm not a drama person, so I let it go once again. Did I mention he was racist? He was disgusted by any other race and sometimes I felt that he didn't even like his own people.
One day George came to me and said that he has not any issues with me that he really appreciates me but he doesn't like to chat a lot with me because we don't have the same interests. Seriously what kind of 43 years old man opens his mouth and says such things?
Meanwhile we were working at the same office. I was hired for part time because I'm a college student but he was working full time. After few weeks, it was clear to all of our coworkers that I was more professional, nicer and had better results than him even though he had more experiences. That situation must have killed him. He started doing every stupid and mean thing to me so I could be late or not showing up at work.
After that I was completely certain that this man is insane and I decided to ignore him for the rest of my life regardless what my parents/brothers/sisters/cousins would say. I left him and rented an apartment for only myself without telling him anything. Now George is dead to me but I learned that:
--You can be more than 30 and still be immature and stupid
--Never let someone else negativity break you down
--You never know someone real personality until you live with him or her
--People can be your enemy even if you are really nice to them
