So... where to begin. Well, approximately 9 hours ago, one of my housemates injured himself with a t-shirt cannon he built. He made it out of PVC (bad choice obviously) and over-pressurized the expansion chamber. One of the caps blew up (read: shattered from the immense pressure) and injured the kid. Ran to get the first aid kit, someone else beat me to it. Ran to get ice, Someone else beat me to it. so i waited to see if i could help somehow. by this time about 10 people are all in the kitchen area, and only one is tending to the kids wounds (housemate's, g/f, almost done training to be a nurse). Meanwhile, i had food that i cooked just before the incident getting cold nearby. I start eating (i'm mad hungry, no dinner), and all of a sudden one of my housemates, who's trying to take control of the situation, yells "[silvertone] get that food out of the fucking kitchen!" (read as very angry, pussyhurt, and caustic all at once). I grab my shit, i'm pissed off, and i tell the guy to eat a dick. He gets someone else to drive the kid to the hospital, but tags along to make sure its all handled properly. Obviously this kid is a control freak. When he got back around midnight, i got a lovely email from him: all this from "eat a dick", and the e-thuggery came from the NEXT ROOM (i live next to the fucker) I knock on his door and tell him that the next time he wants to bash me he should say it to my face. Apparently this was a wrong decision because he opens up hollering at me and telling me how I'm a terrible member of the house because I was in his way. I'm totally calm throughout this, but he's literally pushing me and trying to start shit. I sit down and assume a relaxed position, trying to ease tension. I try reasoning with him, telling him that I was awaiting instruction and he had no right to yell at me. More yelling and threats from him. I go back to my room and as I'm leaving he says "unless you apologize for what you said to me, you're dead to me and i will do everything in my power to get you out of this house" so i calmly sent him this email: i'm not in the wrong, am i? And if not, what should i do about this kid? He dishes it out but cannot take it at all. cliffs: Pussyhurt housemate yells at me. I tell him to eat a dick, He threatens to vote me out of the house for it. UPDATE: The fucker apologized via email, and will be giving me a formal apology when I get back to the house. what a fucking tool.
