    Question have to read her face?

    Hello~

    Would you help me how to say this naturally please?


    A: Do you have empty room in your house?

    B: Not now, what up? Youíve just moved in new house.

    A: As you know Iím living with a landlord together. We have some conflict.
    She kept saying donít waste electricity donít waste water donít use too much internetÖ
    So, whatever I do something I have to read her face.
    Even I read her face when Iím taking shower . Make me so uncomfortable.

    B: You are so soft. Since you paid rent you no reason to read her face.

    Well, my landlady lives in the house too, and we are having conflicts. She keeps telling me "Don't waste electricity...don't waste water...don't use the internet so much". So whatever I do, I have to think what she might say. Even if I take a shower I have to think if I am using too much water. It makes me so uncomfortable.

    B: You are so soft. Since you are paying rent you no reason to read her face. you shouldn't have to worry.
    The phrase" to read something in her face" >> "Whenever I have had a shower and if I meet her in the passage, I can read disapproval in her face, so I think I must have wasted water or something!".

    Thanks a lot for your help Anglika

    Would you tell me if I can say in this way?

    " So whatever I do, I have to read landlady's feeling (or mind). "

    Can I say like this ?
