Another roommate issue

Roommate is mad that I'm moving out. We're on a month to month rental and I have contacted the landlord to end with the last day being July 31. I was typing a text to friend and the current roommate ended up receiving it. He's pissed that he received it through a text message and not through face to face interaction. He's now threatened to withhold July's rent until July 15, 2011, the last day possible according to the Saskatchewan Tenant Act. How do I make the current living situation as good as possible? I don't intend on escalating the situation and I'm going to ignore his threat. [more inside]

Don't use that there!!!

My boyfriend and I have very different views on what constitutes "clean". I'm not talking about differences when it comes to keeping one's room neat and organized. We're on the same page about that. I'm talking about re-using towels, sponges, dirty dish rags, and keeping counter tops SANITARY. Help me parse this one out. [more inside]

Bimonthly San Francisco apartment question: Student Edition

Please help a new grad move to San Francisco. I will probably arrive on June 1 and start working June 10, and I have $1500 for the whole move in process. Where do I stay while I'm apartment hunting? A hotel is very expensive and a hostel is pretty cramped. I could probably stay on a friend's couch but are there any other reasonable options for 1 month stays? [more inside]

Kicking the bucket, one console at a time

I kicked the DVD tray while it was open on my roommate's xbox 360 slim. Now it won't close. It feels like the gears are off track or broken. Does the warranty cover that? If not, what should I do to fix it? Home repair? Take it to the local console repair shop? Can it be fixed, or should I replace the dvd drive?

Terrible Roommate

My roommate is driving me crazy. I have another friend wanting to move in, but the problem is kicking him out without completely hurting his feelings. He doesn't have any other friends in the city, so I feel bad putting him out with nowhere to go. Any suggestions?

How would you split the rent?

Asking for a friend: I am considering moving into a two bedroom apartment with a couple. I would have one room (the smaller one), and they would occupy the master bedroom. Their room is very large -- close to twice the size of mine. What would be an equitable split of the rent? All utilities are included in the rent.
