Despite the fact that I have the best roommates in the world, I’ll occasionally remark, “I’m tired of having roommates.”
And Will replies: “Are you $1,700 per month tired of it?”
I don’t need to respond. The answer is obvious. The minor inconveniences — sharing a refrigerator, waiting to use the washing machine — pale in comparison to the additional $20,400 per year that our roommates contribute to our mortgage. It’s a total no-brainer.
