How do you live with a neatnik who's also your landlord?
My housemate is driving me crazy. I live in his house under a lease agreement with him. I've gone to great lengths to improve my cleanliness. However, he still regularly finds "violations" of the house's cleanliness rules (which were mostly unilaterally dictated by him) and fines me about $5 for each infraction.
I never know when I'm going to find a new message in my e-mail box telling me I'm being fined for another "mess." I've tried talking to him, but he's very good at justifying himself. Also, I don't want to get kicked out.
What should I do?
