xwscrewx: there you are man
Feetalpig: word up bro
xwscrewx: i'm confused dude
xwscrewx: it seem inconsistent
Feetalpig: okay help me follow you
xwscrewx: cable's a flat fee too, but you split that up with the people that
xwscrewx: which i think is how it should be
xwscrewx: and i haven't been charged for phone before either... greg paid
my share because he was subleasing for me
Feetalpig: so how should the phone go then
xwscrewx: well who was there for july?
xwscrewx: when did d, meghan, and tallchris move in?
Feetalpig: it was me and chris for the majority of july
xwscrewx: well if it was just you and chris you guys shouldn't get fucked by
having to pay the whole thing
xwscrewx: but chris should have to chip in too
xwscrewx: you know what i'm saying?
Feetalpig: yeah i know what you're saying and what
i was thinking..
Feetalpig: was that by taking the rent money he
gave me to divide among me, you, chris and billy
Feetalpig: we were gonna use that towards cent 21
Feetalpig: is that off?
xwscrewx: what's included in the c21 utils?:
Feetalpig: water ,sewage, trash
xwscrewx: ok trash and sewage are flat, but isn't water a usage deal?
Feetalpig: i see your point now
xwscrewx: i was starting to think i was crazy
Feetalpig: okay word
Feetalpig: so heres whats happening
Feetalpig: i'm bringing home the cent 21 bill
Feetalpig: and the $120 chris gave me
Feetalpig: then we will sort it out from there
Feetalpig: for the time being, how do you think local
phone should stand?
xwscrewx: ok my basic feeling is this... flat fees go like rent... paid for by
peeps on the lease unless there's a subletter to cover the shit
xwscrewx: hence greg got me most the time
xwscrewx: but july & tallchris is wierd... because he's not particularly
subletting for anyone... but he is there using the shit
xwscrewx: so he should chip in
xwscrewx: so where to put the compromise?
xwscrewx: off the bat i'm thinking, split 5 ways?
Feetalpig: yeah that works for me
Feetalpig: good call
Feetalpig: i'll put up a revised version now
xwscrewx: unless you told chris the 120 would be flat for staying there
xwscrewx: and you wouldn't hit him with utils... in which case we should
Feetalpig: i told him 120
Feetalpig: and we never mentioned utils
Feetalpig: just been like that
Feetalpig: so he might actually be asssuming that
was a package
Feetalpig: i didnt even think about that
xwscrewx: maybe you should have a chat with him
xwscrewx: like "dude i know i said 120, but we didn't talk about utils... if
you can chip in, please do, but if you were under the impression that 120
was a flat fee then i guess that's my bad and we can still go with that"
xwscrewx: or something
Feetalpig: ah word
xwscrewx: so i guess it will be either
($utils-$120)/4 or ($utils-$120-$utils/5)/4 = (4/5*$utils-$120)/4 =
1/5*$utils - $30
Feetalpig: i'm definately saving that equation
$tallchris = $120 or $120+$utils/5
$otherdudes = ($utils-$tallchris) / 4
where utils = flat rate shit that should be charged like rent
usage rate shit should be split between you, or if we're goign with flat rate
for tall chris then it's even more complicated because then you should get to
take a portion of that $120 that we would otherwise split evenly for usage
Feetalpig: damn this convo is soooo saved
xwscrewx: i guess in that case... you'd collect the $120 from chris... but the
number we'd substitute for $tallchris in the other equation would be
$120-$usageutils/2*x where x is the ratio of how much it's your bad that
we aren't charging him usage utilities
xwscrewx: 1 being not your bad ... 2 being entirely your bad
xwscrewx: no wait
xwscrewx: 0 being entirely your bad... 1 being not your bad
Feetalpig: ah word
Feetalpig: yes yes ys
Feetalpig: thats exactly what i like
Feetalpig: you ar ehte man
xwscrewx: so you need to figure out whether chris is flat or chipping in...
and then we need to decide on an x
Feetalpig: i'm mailing this convo to him
Feetalpig: its the easiet
Feetalpig: most direct way
xwscrewx: you know that's probably true
