    My Worst Experience Ever

    I rented this amazing house in February with this guy from the US who was pursuing his PHD at the university. Starting in July he began to act a little weird but then i thought it was maybe because of academic or financial stress. On the 18th of August, it was early in the...

    In the 80's I had a room mate named Reuben, he was a 20 something Mexican guy and was the most obnoxious man I've ever known. Reuben was a coke dealer (Not cola) and had a lot of undesirables to the house. I worked 11 hours a day and Reuben would go to the bar then when the bar...

    Ms. Allergic

    I live with my crazy roommate right now. She is supposed to move out in 3 days.  She is bipolar, but won't go to a doctor to get diagnosed. She thinks the government would track her if she found out. She is a senior in college and is 25 years old and was randomly assigned...

    In Graduate School...

    Oh, my gosh, this girl was crazy!  I didn't think so at first, in fact I knew her.  I also knew her boyfriend and all of her other friends, so I felt pretty secure that I was getting myself in an apartment with three nice women and would not have to worry about that, at...

    She Built a Shrine Behind the Laundry Bin

    I arrived at the dorms two days before my new roommate was scheduled to arrive. In the mean time, I  joked with my friends that if fate was kind my roomie would be a tall redhead with big breasts. And then she arrived. Wow, crazy hot. But the downsides started showing up...

    She had some infatuation with guys in the Navy.  She would go on Myspace and Facebook, find guys who went to USNA or served in the Navy, then invite them over to our dorm room.  And sometimes she'd had sex with them, most often when I was in the room.  It was so...

    So I live in a house with a couple of older guys

    and everything was peaceful. Then one guy moved out and we hoped the new guy would be alright (the landlord takes care of all of this kinda stuff). Not sure what he was thinking but he scored with this guy...He's been here a few months and so far has gone through 5 jobs. He gets...

    Well he still is my roommate,

    thank god we don't see each other that often. He is a nice guy but Jesus some of his OCD tendencies **** me the F off. For example, he doesn't cook but I do. And every time I do he has to comment about the smell and open windows. You would think I am cooking fish and curry...

    A Brief Catalogue

    So, part of the standard college experience is sharing space with new people. I'm never thrilled about it but it seems unavoidable and after college in the early 20's 'roughing it" years, it seems a part of the course. You save money. You may even meet some cool people and live...

    Lesson Learned

    I had a two bedroom apartment in a great location from 2006-2008. November of '06, my roommate moved out and even though the rent was more then I could afford, I somehow managed, especially with the generous help of my family. In December, I had a friend visit me and he brought...

    I propose the following - you decide if you think you would feel safe living in the same dwelling as some of my previous roomies: 1) Moved completely in to her walk-in closet, slept on the floor, made no phone calls or accepted any calls, ate take-out for every meal for 3...

    She's Out There, Looking For A New Place To Live!!!

    The thought of this girl still makes me shudder. She lied when she moved in.... said she worked as a vet nurse, came and visited with her mum. Mum vouched for her and also to cover for her if she was ever short. Mum well dressed, spoke of own business, very nice gold bling...

    I still talk to her regularly, 8 years later. She's still a nut, albeit a stay-at-home-mom, conservative nut. I love her dearly.

    A Pathological Liar

    I'd tell you about him, but I can't because I don't really know anything about him. Sure, he would talk all the time... tell me about where he was from, his experiences, the sports he played, his parents, his cars, his major, his friends -- he could talk a blue streak. But one...

    My Craziest Roommate

    I Still Have a Crazy Roommate

    She does things that have driven me, and the other roommate out of the house at different times. The other roommate hasn't, and won't come back.   She keeps the temp. in the main area at 60 year round [and keeps the cooling part running], which makes my room go to 50 or...

    Crazy Doesn't Begin to Describe It
