I’m in a house of five other students close to our college campus, and this one dude is a giant asshole.
We had our first “house meeting” just to set some ground rules and learn a little bit about each other. He created a whole list on a white board and ran the “house” meeting. If you spoke or tried to talk about something else not on the list or out of order he would yell at you. When we finally got a word in about some things we wanted or that bothered us, he told us all that life is tough and we would learn to adapt. Learn to adapt to his way of living, the way he wanted all of us to live in the house.
He doesn’t believe in wireless, cable, or dishwashers. He leaves gigantic messes everywhere and is keeping his mini fridge and half his belongings in our kitchen area. He doesn’t want us to flush to conserve water. He loudly sings and vocalizes all hours of the day. He takes food and materials off of other people’s food shelves.
He wants a of us to post our schedules and show when we are here or not. He wanted to charge a fee for our parking spot, and charge everyone else more for rent since he has to [volunteered to] share a room.
Attached is the photo of him finding a dish with a spot on it. Maybe if you believed in dishwashers it wouldn’t have been there. It’s been a month exactly in our twelve month lease. I will not survive.
A few years ago, I had recently met up over Facebook with a girl I had known for years. We weren’t super close before, but after we started talking over Facebook we realized that we were basically the same person! That we had tons in common. Quickly, we became best friends. Let’s call her W.
Despite living several hours apart we spent many weekends together, having the time of our lives. However, after about 5 months, my family was moving across the country and I was going, also.
W decided to come, too. So she and I got an apartment together. And at first it was grand, we spent our nights eating takeout and enjoying life as best friends. But then she met a guy, J.
Now I had nothing against her dating- I dated a lot, I had one short-term boyfriend and a few flings here and then.
But never would they come over without her permission, and we never spent time out in the open unless she was okay with it. Continue reading
I could have made this post a lot longer. He has been our roommate for two years, and will be thankfully moving into his own place in two months. So to make a long story short, I will list all of the dumb crap he does so you know how NOT to be a shitty roommate:
– taking major dumps in the toilet and not flushing, or taking sticky black craps and not having the decency to give the toilet a scrub. Not flushing the toilet 85% of the time.
– hanging out in the single bathroom we have between three people doing god knows what and leaving puddles on the counter.
– using a half a roll of toilet paper per crap and only offering to buy toilet paper twice in two years, and buying the cheap shit when you do.
I just stumbled across this website and thought I’d share the most infuriating, worst experience of sharing a house I’ve had.
I had to get out of my previous place ASAP, and although I knew the two girls I was moving in with well (or so I thought), it was super rushed and I didn’t assess the situation well before I moved in because I hadn’t even seen the place. So anyway, these girls, let’s call them Bec and Sam, they’d rented this house fairly impulsively and had no idea how to even simply maintain a house. They hadn’t cleaned the bathrooms once, hadn’t had the lawns mowed at all or the kitchen properly before I’d moved in (a sum total of 5 months).
So here is my story, from less than 2 days ago. I apologize for the length, but it’s intricate. It began last summer, sometime in late July or August, my memory is a little shit with dates. One of my best friends who was living with me for about 6 months to a year started dating a girl, that got him hooked on drugs. I started to notice when he would disappear during the month right as rent was due, then give me a half ass story when he got back and paid up. After a few months I told him, “I love ya buddy, but one more time and you have to go”, and he agreed but wouldn’t admit to why he was always late but made about 2000+ a month. His rent was never more than 650. I had been saving for months, and knew it would come around where he vanished. He didn’t respond to me, my fiance who lived with us, or our fellow friends. After 3 days I become incredibly worried and contact his mother online.
We gave her many favors. Asked her to clean her room spotless or leave about 5 times. It was always “dont worry ill keep it clean from now on.” Always went straight back to normal. She missed rent for 4 months because she was jumping job to job. We gave her slack on that(still wasnt caught up when she left) she used our shampoo, conditioner, body wash, toothpaste, toilet paper, cleaning supplies, ate our food, and everything. After january of this year, she stopped offering to buy basic household things when they were needed. She took clothing items “on accident” and borrowed expensive clothes to wear stunt biking. She had a cat, and changed its litter once every or so months (just imagine 90% cat turds, 10% litter) you finally get on my last nerve, so we ask you to leave.
I met these people on kijiji, and when I went to their place I noticed it was dirty in the house but I needed a place to move asap. I made a deal with them that if I cleaned up the overall mess they would help keep it clean afterwords. They had 4 cats, and a small dog. They only changed the litterbox at most every 3 weeks themselves, so I was forced to do it because I couldn’t stand to hear the cats try for 30+ minutes trying to clean the shit off their paws, or the entire house smelling like cat and dog shit. They never once took the dog out for a walk. They had those “poop pads” that people use to housebreak animals, but the dog didn’t use them and just shit all over the floor. They would just sit around with shit everywhere. Eventually I got tired of having to do all this and called them out, and they tried to make it seem like I was in the wrong for wanting them to take care of their animals. Anyway I kept the place clean for the time I was there, but after I moved a friend went over and sent me a picture of the place, and it looks like it did before I moved in. See the attached image.
