What really does happen on those evenings your housemates just vanish until the following afternoon?
It all starts at about 6 o'clock when you bid farewell to your housemate as they take themselves off to the bus stop for an apparently ordinary evening. Then at about 1am you receive a text message that simply reads,
'Hey, won't be back tonight!'
That's when it starts! The unbearable curiosity! What exactly has happened to warrent such a statement?
As far as you were aware they just went to a meeting or for a quiet drink with a mate they hadn't seen for a while. So why now do they not need to come home? I personally find this very frustrating, I have to know because whatever the reason is, it must be good! Then, if the evenings agonising theory constructing and the following mornings painful wait for them to return wasn't bad enough, all you get from them is cheeky smile and a comment like,
'was a pretty cool night thanks'
It's not fair! I want to know!
Of course we do it ourselves but that doesn't mean they shouldn't tell us.
