I'm buying my own toilet paper and I'll use as much as I darn well please. We're also going to eat out of paper plates and use those foil baking pans so we don't make a mess. We probably won't be allowed to use the dishwasher!

I hope we find a house before I lose my mind or end up in the looney bin.
WT?? Do they think that you are dogs??? My mom has more house rules that Joan Crawford, but we're allowed on the furniture!
What a super opportunity for some passive-aggressive moves! Since they obviously can't afford TP ;0) go out & buy them a ton of toilet paper (get a big Costco batch) and put some old towels down on the couch "in case we forgot and sat there by mistake"! I have a whole host of "special" things you can do- oops, how DID that dead spider get into your sugar bowl? I once had a landlord that was antagonizing me. We shared a buiding. I got into his powdered laundry detergent & replaced it with plaster of Paris. Juvenile behavior, yes, but the belly laughs I get out of it to this day bring me much joy!
When you get your house, make sure there's a big basket of TP in the bathroom & invite them to sit on your sofa.
I was staying alone @ my mom's while she was visiting her sister. She has ONE kitchen towel for hands ONLY and ONE for dishes ONLY (since your hands touch the towel while you're drying the dish, I don't get it) and all overhead lights must be turned OFF once you have entered a room. She has lots more, and I had fun while she was away!

4 bettas: Butch, 3-year-old violet male PK EE & 3 girls in a 30 gal sorority. I do not name the girls anymore! 1/2 of them die within a month.
30 gal: 9 Oto cats, 4 Ocellifer cats. Inverts: Cherry shrimp & 2 assasin snails.
10 gal.: Butch, his 5 oto cats, 3 assasin snails, and a few snails the assassins haven't caught.

Oh, I'm definitely buying my own toilet paper. Let's just hope we don't have to stay there long.

DQ, I don't get those rules. There's being reasonable with rules and then there's just plain unreasonable. Your brother is being completely unreasonable.

I mean, my dogs have more freedom than that!!

If I were you, I'd have a nice long talk with your brother about this (and possibly a backup plan in case it all goes sour).

We do have a backup plan. If it gets too bad we'll go to a furnished apartment. It's mostly my sister in law. I can hear her now. OMG I don't want those people messing up my house! This crap really has me upset.

How about moving in some bales of hay, some chickens & goats? They never said you couldn't have farm animals in the house, right?

Also, while they aren't there, order lots of pay-per-view porn movies!
You don't have to watch them, just imagine your SIL opening up the bill!

Don't you love how my mind works? I know I do...

Once, to get back at my (now ex) husband (he was horribly abusive, verbally), I picked a bunch of poison ivy leaves (w/ gloves) & rubbed the inside of his clean underwear, the inside of the bands of his watch collection, and the inside of some dress shirts. I know he got poison ivy all over his wrist. I never found out about what happened w/ the rest of his body!

OMG! Lmao! I knew a girl when I was in college whose roommates kept drinking her milk when she was gone on weekends. She solved that problem by putting milk of magnesia in the milk. Lol
