The Harper house rules: An intervention

Monday 30 January 2012, by ERIKA SHAKER

We recognize that no roommate is perfect, and from time to time we have all gotten on each other’s nerves. But you take the cake (and let’s be honest, sharing anything — including cake — is not exactly your thing).
Because you have signed a sub-lease (with a previous tenant who, we might add, seems quite smug about the household unrest that has been caused by your presence), we will be sharing these accommodations until fall 2015. So until then, the rest of us expect you to follow a few basic rules which we are submitting in writing as you refuse to attend house meetings and become hostile when confronted directly.
