Meet our 21-year-old protagonist, let's call him 'the Phantom of the Flat'. He's a busy student, working two jobs to make ends meet and keep his grades up. He's got a jam-packed schedule, leaving home at 7 am and returning around 8 pm. But his housemates are not impressed with his ghostly presence. They want him to join their movie nights and dinner cook-offs. They've even confronted him, calling him an 'unsocial ghost'. But is he really in the wrong? Let's dive into this tense tale of shared living. 🏠👻

The Phantom's Future: A Promise of Change or More Ghostly Encounters? 👻

Our 'Phantom of the Flat' has found himself in a real-life haunted house scenario, with his housemates calling him an 'unsocial ghost'. They want him to join their social activities, but with his packed schedule, he's struggling to find the time. After a heated confrontation, the house is filled with tension. But our phantom has decided to make a change. He plans to apologize and make an effort to be more sociable, at his own pace, without jeopardizing his job or studies. Will this ease the tension or will he continue to be the ghost in the house? Let's see what the internet thinks of this situation... 👻🏠
