They kind of have this friendship going on and sometimes hang in the living room, cook meals for each other, talk about their lives. When I get home or cook and see them, I say hi, engage in really short conversation and just go back to my room. I'm an introvert and this sort of thing just gives me a lot of anxiety. I knew a roommate situation wouldn't be ideal for me, but it's the only thing I can afford to do at this point in my life.

The worst part is that I had a financial problem in June, which has led me to ask our landlord to give me a few extra days to pay full rent and she was fine with it, but my roommates are freaking out, even though I've always paid rent on time in the years that I've been here. I overheard them talking about me and one of them was saying "I could pay his share and then he would pay me so we would be OK with the landlord", "Is that going to be hard for you financially?", "Yeah, I guess", "Then **** it, we're only giving him once chance."

It's especially surprising to hear this when one of them has had problems paying rent three times because he didn't have a job and the only reason he's still here is because my other roommate helped him with the rent for 3 months.

I know they're right to be this radical about kicking me out, but I just needed to rant.
Eh. Are all of you transplants?

Your roommates sound like a bunch of *******. Why are they so worried about the landlord?

Since you're not close to them they're tripping more about this than they would if it was one of them in a jam. I wouldn't worry too much about it.
