48 comments

  1. he doesnt do the dishes which are shared between 3 of us. And he doesn't flush the toilet in the morning. Most of the times if the seat is down, he'd take a piss and not even wipe the seat. Thats why im wondering if there are courses something along the names of Housing Cleaning 101

  2. They slam doors, leave lights on, and one of them never recycles. She just throws everything in the garbage.

  4. Despite them being two of my closest friends, they are messy as fuck/never clean up after themselves.

  5. Everyone slams all the doors, they stomp around, yell in the morning when I'm still sleeping, one of them just freely uses my shower products, no one ever takes out the garbage, and they leave all their shoes and boots inside the living room instead of the mud room

    1. holy shit, yes. fucking lack of self awareness, just because you don't have to sleep because you don't have early classes doesn't mean other people don't have to sleep.

    3. Cool. Stereotype the people because you don't like your roommates

    4. I'm not. I hate all brown people.

    5. That's fine then. You're allowed to be racist if you chose to be

    6. @6c there's a reason why it's even a stereotype: a large portion of the population actually exemplify it. You don't see black people being stereotyped as nerds or chinese people being stereotyped as outgoing. While there are obviously exceptions the proportion of the population which fit the stereotype outweight the proportion who don't.

    7. There's a stereotype of brown people being bad roommates? Why am I not hearing of this until now? Some of my buds are brown and they're great people and roommates so get out of here with that crock of shit

  7. All the weed, the drunken stupors at 4am, the after parties at 3am, the phone calls from police, the hiding of soap and then using my tv. And the pre-drinks during final exams. DO NOT LIVE WITH LAURIER STUDENTS

    1. Agreed! Urgh 2 of mine are from Laurier, and they are so noisy at night omg.

    2. Why would the police be phoning you? You guys have a land line in your student house? If your tv is in your room..lock your door (unfortunate if they go in if it's unlocked but still) or if it's outside it's kind of fair game unless you specify other wise but even then it's in the common area so it's usually fair game. Unfair to judge all Laurier students like that. Next time just look for a place with all UW students even then you may be surprised by the amount of that are the exact same.

    3. To be fair, they're not all bad. I had a great roommate from Laurier one term. She was quiet and considerate but really friendly and talkative whenever I saw her.

    4. 7 here I'll clarify some things. Police phoned my cell because he picked my roommate up completely intoxicated and asked if I knew where he lived and if I would take care of him. Regretfully I did, and he peed on the kitchen table. Also I was down to share things in the common spaces but he started hiding shit and withholding it from other roommates so I kept the remote in my room. One day I find him messing around with the tv and my ps3 and somehow he fucked his netflix up. I eventually moved the tv in my room and said cut the shit. Additionally I live with my brother, a very close friend, and some of his classmates. The classmates are the issue. My brother, friend, and myself are very studious students (and they're both WLU) but some of the others don't give a shit and just party. I haven't had issues like these with UW students, only WLU students. The atmosphere is so different at Laurier, it's just 4 years of a giant party, school comes second. Next time I'll be looking for roommates will be in law school and I'll just get a single apartment.

    5. *and by messing around he had 1 end of an hdmi cable plugged into an xbox 360 and the other end into a ps3, then ran the composite cables into the tv, and made a new user on the ps3 but didn't enable wifi. It was a clusterfuck. This was all without my permission, we usually kept our consoles to ourselves.

  8. Coughing blood in the sink and not cleaning it up.

  9. They're both loud brown girls. Really loud. All they do is talk about 'good looking' guys in their classes. This means there's always a lot of loud laughter/screaming, and you can't tell if it's sad laughter/screaming, mad laughter/screaming, or happy laughter/screaming.

    I'm brown too, but I'm really quiet. It's weird.

    1. I've come to hate most brown people and I'm brown. Quite unfortunate

  10. One of them just throws her used pads in the washroom garbage can without wrapping them or anything.. It smells terrible.

  11. Most of my roommates are pretty solid with just a few quirks, but one really sucks. He never cleans anything or takes out the trash, and he makes the biggest messes in the bathroom. bro if you miss the entire toilet you suck. Wipe that shit up. Also do one of the following: 1) shave or trim your pubes 2) wipe em up off the toilet/tub

  12. Lived in a house with 2 of my buds and 2 international Chinese students. My buds were fine but the international students were fucking nightmares. They were loud as fuck at all hours of the day. We understood that communicating with friends and family back home was hard during the day but to Skype at full volume at night was just a dick move. They never cleaned their dishes or even attempted to use the dish washer. They had their own washroom but it was disgusting and they began to use ours because they were too lazy to clean their own. They would have friends over all the time over night and they would all game together; I have no issue if it's quiet but they're loud as fuck. I feel like they were catered to back home to the transition by be taking a while but it's still fucking annoying to have to live with them

  13. Only cleans/does the dishes when his girlfriend is coming over. I stopped doing them at one point to see how long it would be until he finally cleaned... after three days I gave up and washed them myself since we had no clean cups left.

  14. A roommate of mine takes credit when I do house chores, and lies to the other room-mate saying that I'm the one who leaves the house dirty, when in fact it's her.

    I stopped caring after a while, but it's a pretty shitty thing to do.

  15. Some of them use my stuff and don't wash it after, my pan has been lying there for literally a week after they've used it. They've also ruined my stuff like one of my pans by scratching it up with either a knife or their fangs.

    1. like seriously, I don't mind you using my stuff but have some respect and at least clean it up and not ruin it after.

  16. Two of my roommates don't seem to understand the concept of rinsing and soaking dishes. Instead, they leave their plates and bowls out to dry and, because they never do dishes and I hate messes, I end up having to be the one to scrape crusty dishes for hours.

    ReplyDelete
  17. This will sound a little weird compared to all the other posts, but he's TOO clean. He may have OCD. I feel bad leaving a cup out, or not doing my dishes right away, or leaving my jacket somewhere that isn't hung. I feel like I can't live in my own house

    1. Sounds like someone is guillttyyyyyyy

  18. Damn. These posts sound like my room mate (soon to be ex at the end of this month).

    He doesn't clean shit, but cooks himself five course meals and there is literally no room left on the counter to even butter bread.
    Gets pouty when I ask him to clean up his mess and then does it half assed.
    His dogs tear the shit out of everything, but he just calls them assholes and doesn't do anything about it.
    We supposedly share chores, his being the kitchen, which he doesn't do, mine the bathroom. The first time I cleaned the bathroom it was spotless and less than an hour later I go in to have a shower and there is cat shit with the kitty little box all inside the tub half-cleaned. I flipped.
    He leaves dishes in dishwater in the sink for days on end, the record is eight.
    He complains if I use the shower when he is "sleeping" because it wakes him up. But he says he has a hearing problem so he needs the television on extra loud to hear it.
    His cat is fucking psychotic. It bites and hisses at everyone that comes in the place. He claims it's the nicest cat in the world and has never done that before.
    He gives no notice when he has people come in to do repairs. He gave me an hour notice, when I was sleeping, that an electrician was coming in for the day to do some work. Even now when he is showing the room for rent he gives me about five minutes so I complain in front of the viewers who never come back. I have told him about the required 24 hours notice so he makes appointments for when I am sleeping.
    He uses my stuff and then refuses to clean it.
    He steals my toiletries.
    He refuses to unclog drains and the toilet by calling a plumber.
    He is morbidly obese and doesn't like wearing clothing... ever so when I bring people over he is either walking around in his shorts or naked.
    He claimed internet was unlimited. Then bitched at me for the extra costs he was charged from Rogers for going over 15 gigs. Utilities including internet were included with the rent.
    He slams doors all the time.

    All of these plus more I have asked him to stop or to be considerate of others. One response was that he left a cleaning detergent, something like Comet, right beside and touching my contact case and solution. I flipped. I asked if he was that much of a moron that he would leave a cleaning agent right beside things that go into my eyes. He just pouted and said I was being passive aggressive. The guy is a psycho.

  19. OK this isn't this term...
    But I had a male roommate who was a few years older than me (like...5-7 yrs, I am female). I had family staying for the weekend in the living room (he was cool with this).

    We walked in to him masturbating on our couch to Dora the Explorer on the tv. He was sitting right where my mom's head was going to be sleeping.

    I wish I could say this only happened once. It didn't.

    3. Almost certainly fake but still great story

    4. 20 here - I wish this was fake. I really, really do. But it isn't. This guy just loved getting off in the living room.
      Even worse (for me), was he would run to the bathroom when I would walk in on him. And it was always on days that I was rushing home cuz I had to pee.

      My mom didn't see him cuz I stopped in my tracks when I walked in and she was stuck behind me at the door. She was picking up her luggage so she didn't really notice I was holding her back. So I never told her and just set up her pillow at the opposite end of the couch lol

      P.S. He was an engineer :P
