Dear Landlord who is also our flatmate,
I totally agree with you: people should accept criticism and people who don't say things to one and would only say it behind their back aren't true friends.
I do accept criticism. In my humble opinion, I think if people want to criticise others, they should do it in a friendly way. However, your criticism is put in an authoritative way. I have lived here for only 2 months, yet I've been criticized by you very often. I really don't want to take it too personal, but I couldn't help think so. Your authoritative criticism made me feel that I live here without paying the rent. Don't I pay? If I do pay the rent, shouldn't I have a part of the right to live in the house and use things or equipment that the landlord allows us to use? Indeed, you are the landlord and live in this flat as well, but that doesn't mean you have the right over us.
Yes, you're right that I should be more aware of my locks of hair on the floor. I don't deny many of them are my hair, and I am being aware of them. However, please don't forget there are 3 girls living in this flat. Whenever you see locks of hair, you say they are mine. I couldn’t help think it's personally. I think you didn't allow any possibility that the locks of hair aren't mine.
The washing incident yesterday was an accident. We wanted to do our laundry, but your clothes were in the washer. We thought hanging them for you but we didn't know where to put them. We didn’t put them in the plastic bag, yet who put them is no longer important. You didn't believe what we said and accusing us doing it as well as saying something not relevant. Everything seems wrong to you when you're in one of your mood.
We don't like to argue or fight with people. If you ever notice, we seldom said something seriously back to you when you said we are dirty and lazy. That's because we don't like to argue! We just tried to do whatever you said and satisfied you. I've lived here for only 2 months, and I'm tried already. If you find that it's difficult to cope with us or cooperate with us, I can move out. Just let me know. You have the right to find your ideal tenant. I think no matter how hard we try, we'll never satisfy you.
