It happened. My roommates/friends/renters know about my housing situation. They talked with someone posting a “notice of default” note on my house. I thought this might happen, but I was hoping it could be avoided with short selling the house.
I just spent an hour with the roommate I am closest too explaining the whole mess. To be honest…
I feel ten times better that they know now.
Now that its out in the open, I can stop lying about why I am selling the house and be truthful with them.
It’s still really embarrassing.
I guess the guy posted the notice of default on a post outside my house, and then take a picture of it. My roommates talked to the guy and the poster advised them they should, “think about moving soon, this house is headed to foreclosure”. Great. Thanks notice of default poster man. Oh well. He’s just doing his job. I guess he crept up really creepy like to the house…probably gets yelled/shot at alot. Poor guy.
So, I’m going to write quick letter to my other two roommates to explain in short detail what has been going on and to apologize to them.
I also have some business work to do before I head off to bed…its 12:45 now, lets hope for a 2 to 3am bedtime.
Now that my roommates know, I’ll be telling my other closer friend soon. I wouldn’t want something to slip and for her to hear it from them.
This sucks, but I feel OK.
