The Sims Cheats

Lazy Roommate Upgrade
Depending on the gender of your character in Get A Life, you'll move in with either Mimi or Dudley. These characters are phenomenally lazy and will not learn skills or clean up after themselves. However, there's a way to cheat and get their initial body skill requirement up enough to get them promoted once. Buy a pool, and have them swim around until their body bar goes up. The income they get isn't that much of an upgrade, but it's better than nothing. After that, they need Charisma to get promoted again, so you're going to be stuck because neither of them will practice their speech in a mirror.
