I’m applying for an apartment. I need my old landlord’s phone number. Do I have her phone number? A copy of the lease? Why, no, why on earth would I have that information! Jenn handled all that!
This is why relying on other people to handle stuff explodes in my face. I tend to rend my personal relationships with an unforgivable sort of finality that bites both ways.
It’s why I’m so terrified of trusting people. If they don’t ruin it, I probably will. It’s probably one more reason I’m happy to be moving out now instead of a year from now so I can actually stay friends with Steph and the Old Man…
Sometimes I think the person I really don’t trust is myself.
