That time I moved into my apt and a girl was living in it

On my 21st birthday I moved into my new apartment for my senior year at Texas Tech and there was a girl STILL LIVING there.  Yep. I swear, these things only happen to me.  Imagine my dismay when I twist my shiny new key into my brand spanking new (to me) apartment door and a girl is in a towel, doing her laundry and getting ready for work.

Excuse me mam, but don't let me interrupt you.

You see, what happened was ...

The apartment complex failed to tell this girl what day I was moving in so she had not moved out yet.  Just a huge, hot mess.  I had a moving truck with movers waiting to move all my stuff into an apartment still OCCUPIED.  We had to pile everything in the living room and wait for this girl to move out the next day.  I mean ... really? 

Since she had to rush to get all of her stuff out, she did not clean one thing and I had to move into her filthy apartment.  I found her weave in my closet and I don't think the girl had ever used a vacuum a day in her life.  Not to mention she left a HUGE grease stain on the wall where her head touched it while laying in bed.

This is the stain after scrubbing and painting over that wall.  It was disgust and I wish I could tell you this is a joke, but it's not. 

Oh, welcome to your new greasy ass room.  

You may be wondering why I'm telling you this story.   Basically because I wanted to! But also because I start moving into the townhouse today and I've been reminded how much I absolute hate moving.  Like literally I think it may be the worst thing on Earth.  Then I'm reminded it could always be worse.  At least I'm not moving into a greasy room. 

So while y'all are out living it up this weekend toasting to the good life, I'll be slaving away moving into my new lair.  I can promise you I will not be looking anything like this.  Who does this Martha Stewart beotch think she is? This is not real life and I will NOT be smiling.

 Ta-ta for now!  p.s. Don't forget to enter my e.l.f. givewaway before MIDNIGHT!

  1. Martha is only smiling because they asked her to pose while she was walking by the movers, making sure they were doing their job! haha. Just a guess ;)

    I am soo excited to see pictures!

  2. this made me LOL-IRL "This is not real life and I will NOT be smiling."

    i know how you feel friend. it's the worst. but it will be over before you know it. and then you'll to decorate your ballin' townhouse.

    love you!

  3. I did not know it was possible for someones head to make a mark like that on the wall. That beez must have never washed her hair. Ewwwwww! Moving Is hell. . Especially if you have to carry anything up or down stairs.

  4. Oh I would have FLIPPED!!! And that's the nastiest thing ever for her hair to leave that much of a GREASE stain! UGH!!! Hope your new townhouse is better than that!

  5. hahah ohh goodness you are too funny! how does that bish think she is..? can't wait to see pictures of your new place :) the outside looks fabulouss!

  6. Ew, that is soooo disgusting. Like, beyond disgusting. Besides the fact that it's gross, I'd be SO furious that I walked into an apartment occupied by someone. What the flip?

    Anyway, I've got my fingers crossed for better luck this weekend! Your townhouse looks and sounds amazing and I can't wait to see some pictures once you get all settled :)

  7. OK That is sick. Good luck on the move! I hate moving... but color me wierd, but I love unpacking and redecorating and organizing.

  8. oh wow that is sick.

    good luck moving into your townhouse this weekend. i know moving stinks but it will be worth it once you get settled in

    i've found that wine makes unpacking more fun. and bribing friends with wine or beer helps moving go faster (sort of). :)

  9. Omg that is SO disgusting!! I would be really pissed off if that happened to me, ugh

  10. that is absolutely horrifying about that grease spot... omg, i want to vom just thinking about it! LOL

    good luck with the moving... i've moved quite a few times so i feel your pain!

  11. hahahah you always make me crack up

    why do people smile when they move...seriously!! i hate moving. I have a temper tantrum almost every time..slamming boxes, throwing random stff out. I FEEL FOR YOU

    gross nasty disgusting piggy girl with her grease stain. SERIOUSLY!?!

    have as best as a move as you can! and drink wine while you do it. or skinnygirl haha


  12. That story is so sucky! Like, ew. That grease stain made me want to vom. Haha... I love moving! But I hate the moving part. Ha

  13. still living there?!?! hahaha no way! that is awesome... and by awesome I mean it makes great blog material.

    at least you know the townhouse is empty... it is empty right?

    that stain is SICK seriously


  14. OMG that grease stain is seriously disgusting! I can't believe she was still there and you had to move all your stuff in until she left! And from seeing the stain, I can only imagine how dirty the rest of the place was. Ugh.

    Hopefully you'll have a better experience this weekend! I feel for you, but I agree moving is the worst thing on earth!

  15. les seriously? A grease stain from her HAIR? THAT IS SO NASTY!

    Not even sure what to say. Um, besides I would NOT be taking that apt! so gross. so so so gross.

  16. EWWWWWWWWWWW that stain is le nasty!

    Good luck moving! I moved 2 months ago and my bf moved 2 weeks after...gah no fun!

    Happy weekend!


  17. I hate packing/moving, (& unpacking!) so I feel your pain...But, you get to live in the yellow house now, yay!

    I am sure your gonna do this with glass of wine in one hand, so have fun.

    xo SARMIN

  18. That grease stain is epic....and disgusting. I also hate moving and have done it twice so far this calendar year. If I can manage it, I'm going to convince the hubs to never move again. Congrats on the new place though.

  19. You have got to be kidding me! That is the craziest most disgusting thing ever! I am seriously laughing So hard:)

  20. I totally just gagged reading this. I can't even deal.

  21. yeah, that's pretty nasty. how does someone have that much grease?? has she heard of shampoo?

  22. After looking at 3 resale homes, we were so disgusted with what people leave behind and do to their house, that we decided there was not a chance in hell we were going to buy a resale.

    PS.. moving sucks. :-(

  23. Wow, whose head actually touches the wall while they sleep?

    That grease stain is just funktastic.

    And aren't apt complexes supposed to do the inspection before someone moves in and repaint, clean the carpets and make sure all the appliances are in good working order? FAIL!!

    Hope you're all moved in by now!

  24. Wow. That's a story and a half! I can't believe someone was still living in the apartment when you got there! And that stain on the wall? What WAS that?? I hope your move went well! And I hope you didn't find anyone in your town house ; )

  25. No. this did not happen.

    And when did weave's become so universal?? haha

    That stain make me want to vomit, there are so many questions, like why did her head touch the wall? And why did she have nasty hair?

    ooh heavens. How has this happened to you TWICE?


  26. I am an idiot.

    I just re-read. And I now realize that this did not happen to you again... but you were simply re-telling the story.


  27. Ummm I was there for this!!! I witnessed the stain first hand!! SICK. Sorry your move was so rough! But def need a wine night next week so I can see the new luxurious pad (and take a bubble bath, obvi).

  28. I am there with you about the horror moving in story... except I was supposed to move into an ALL GIRLS apt and a huge man who asked me "you like chicken and dance clubs?" was in MY apt! haha Love your blog!!

  29. OMG. That is so gross. How could they not know she was living there? They didn't do a walk through? Wow.
