I really want a rat, and I don't understand why this is such a huge skreeonk deal to him that he has to throw a tantrum whenever I bring it up, since it would be in my room and he wouldn't ever have to see it. My boyfriend doesn't care either way but he keeps telling me not to bring anything home since he doesn't like the tension. If it weren't for him telling me not to I'd have brought one home already because honestly I could give a skreeonk less what our roommate thinks.
Anyway we just got a really adorable black and white rat in at work that I fell in love with, and our roommate is on vacation for a week and a half so I hinted that I want to just bring him home. My boyfriend is annoyed with me now because he knows our roommate will freak out if he finds out we got a pet. It just frustrates me so much. Luckily we won't be living with him come July, but still... It just pisses me off that I pay rent here and yet I don't even have control over what I keep in my own room. Something he would never even have to know was there. And to top it off it's creating issues between me and my boyfriend.
Fm screw that guy (obviously not literally) if I were you buy yourself an adorable rat and keep it in the room.
What's he going to do? Barge in to check? Rats can be pretty quiet and just clean his cage or whatever you need to do when he's not home.
Kind of irritating your boyfriend isn't on your side, but I kind of understand not wanting to cause tension though with people you live with because of awkward and tense encounters in the house and bla.
