I believe in order to bring it to court as evidence, the person being recorded must know he/she is being recorded.

Thanks dinosaur, her landlords have been talking with her on almost a daily basis since she's lived there, she's been reporting everything that he breaks on the day he does it.
Her landlords live upstairs and they want her to stay living there...they just want him out.

I still remember when at BCIT someone borrow money from my frd and never bother to pay, just aovided his calls and shit. Frd got a bunch of buddies go to the guy class took his laptop, books and everything and just walk out. Guy is smart enough to pay the next day to get his shit back. Have your gf do the same thing. Take his more valueable pession and let him know he isn't getting it back till he pays (computers, car keys, TV.......)

heh, ive suggested that to her countless times...but honestly...this guy has nothing to his name except for his computer...no car, no nice clothes, nothing worth more then 100$ really.

taking him to small claims court is something she doesnt want to have to do cause yes, in the end, she'll get maybe 100$ out of it at tops, but at this point, she'd rather put him through hell then let him walk away scott free.

It sounds like this guy is on the verge of being homeless lol.

I know we're not saints but maybe just cut him a break? His situation is pretty fucked up as it is; I think it's established that your girlfriend isn't really getting anything worthwhile back.

I won't go as far as to suggest helping him, but maybe just wish him good luck or something. Your girlfriend will sleep much better at night this way too.

Am I the only one who feels bad for the guy?

Nobody in his life is noticing his shit falling apart? I wonder if he even has any parents

i honestly think he is on the verge of being homeless, he says hes got a friend who hes going to stay with for a bit....but once the friend see's how he lives first hand...they'll have him booted out in no time.

I'd rather move back home then find a craigslist roomie. Truthfully, I don't think shes getting her money back and she should leave it at that. No point opening a new can of worms by going to small claims court. Just accept the mistake and move on.

As stupid as this may sound, even if the guy is a total slob, if you think he's a decent guy at least point him in the right direction. Do some good in life

this may sound mean but,

if this guy is on the verge of being homeless, then he sounds like he deserves it.

he basically sits home all day unemployed (is he actually looking for a job or what?)
and lets his pets piss all over the place - this makes him sound like a irresponsible and lazy guy... so if he becomes homeless then i think he deserves it...

That being said, he can't expect every little shit to get handed to him.

i fully agree with you, ive no sympathy for him whatsoever and neither does my gf. he deserves everything thats about to happen to him, its time for him to grow up and put his big boy pants on and step into the real world.

You would not be so sympathetic and so caring about this guy if you were in the OP's girlsfiends situation right now.

I have a strong feeling you would be raging mad.....I know I would.

people like this dirtbag roomate take advantage of people like this girl all the time,it would not surprise me if he did this to his previous roomates before her.

I had a random Craigslist roomie, turned out great and we are best friends to this day. The roomie is a female as well.

He's in his 30's and he still acts like this? There's no fucking hope for this guy at all,he will remain single for the rest of his fucking life unless he finds someone that's just as filthy as he is.

Just wondering,why doesn't your girlfriend just move in with you?

We've been dating for less than a year, I live with my parents (it's the Italian way ) and I'm saving up to buy a condo. Once I've got one I've no problem if she were to live with me, but for now with the lil medical problem I have, it's not a good time to be going out and buy one.

Difference is, a woman in her 20s has plenty of men who would support her and not let her be in danger of being homeless

A 30s man's value to society plummets, FAST, and once a man is broke and in his 40s, his value is near 0

Come down to the poor DTES hood, most of the people people are older men, forgotten and useless to society

On the other hand, if you sit around and make a mess, and do nothing that has benefit to anyone, and you're a dick... well, you get what you deserve then!
