Chapter 3 - The Clean-up
We opened the door and were immediately overpowered by the stench, dust, and what we later found was mold. Yasushi could only be in the room for maybe a minute before he was coughing and sneezing, much like CM had been but worse since he wasn't used to it. I didn't last much longer than him and we both felt sick for the rest of the night.
What we saw upon walking in was a full trash can, trash and debris on the floor, every surface covered in thick dust, stains all over the floors and walls, and the room filled with miscellaneous objects that we never asked for nor needed. The fan and shelves he "gave" us were completely covered in dirt and dust. Warning: the pictures are kind of disgusting.
I texted CM after this, telling him that the room was making us feel sick, and warning him that it was very likely he wouldn't be getting his deposit back after leaving the room in such a state. He could have offered to help clean since it was still within the grace period, and he could have at least apologized. Obviously he was not concerned with our health, or his money.
So I'm not going to let this lesson go to waste, for me or for my children. Take care of yourself, take responsibility for the effect your actions may have on others, and always, always, keep trying to do something BETTER.
(the whole TEN dollars left after all the time and money I needed to clean up the mess he left)
and to tell me to stop stalking his Twitter and leave him alone. He gave no apologies or explanations
for breaking his promises to us and having us risk our health and use our time (and his money)
to clean up what he did to our property.
I was looking for any kind of information he offered about his health, education, work, and living
situations. He has blocked me on all social media channels so I only can see what he has made
available for public viewing. However he seems to have this idea that I have been constantly being
passive aggressive and writing things about him, which is not true. But I guess when you've spent
over a decade being a perpetual victim, blaming everyone else for your own poor choices, you
become a bit paranoid as well. Very sad and another major indicator that he really should have
started being proactive in seeking professional help and starting a healthier lifestyle a while ago.
It's still not too late but the farther down he goes the harder it will be to come back up….if he can
He has told me to never contact him again, and I have no reason to after this; I have cleaned up his
mess, and finished our transactions, and I have not been contacting him in any way other than what
was necessary to do so. But someday if he really does want to live a better life and does actually
want help and support I will still leave my channels of communication open to him, as I do with all the
difficult people I encounter in my journey. Ultimately, it is all up to him whether he wants to be happy
