My best friend and I found a gorgeous house to move into. It looks like something out of the 1920s, with huge, high ceilings and wood panel doors. It's absolutely beautiful and yet still in my price range.
I'm just worried that we might have lost it.
She makes fun of me, because I'm very Southern, but one of the advantages of my upbringing is my belief in the importance of manners. But because she wanted the bigger room, I found myself in the uncomfortable position of trying to renegotiate living spaces when the best had already been taken.
I've been upset about it all night and this morning. I'm not a pushy person. I was raised to be respectful and never to impose. I know part of house hunting is the negotiation, but I think I stepped out of line, and now I feel like I've betrayed the way I was raised.
I've called the landlady and apologized profusely and offered to forget the whole thing and just take the tiny side bedroom, but we're still waiting to hear back. I just don't know.
Maybe it's just because I'm so very Southern. It's been pointed out to me.
