Now they are talking to my mom behind my back about how unfair it is that I'm charging them an even share of the rent! (which is ironic, since she's the landlord...) I'm charging them $300 a person, which is what I and GreenHunk each pay as well, which includes utilities and rent in a house with a back yard. They get 2 bedrooms, we share 1. Also, I kept 1 bedroom open all summer for him at her request even though I could have rented it to someone else.

I dare them to find even a one-bedroom apartment that accepts pets for that price. Especially since they will never have money for first and last month's rent and deposit.
