    She Sexiled Me, Took My Stuff, And Spread Malicious Rumors

    We shared a bedroom, and she got into a bad habit of kicking me out to have sex, even though her boyfriend had his own room. When she did it on finals night, I had to come in and kick them out. I was so furious that I couldn't sleep and had to take my math exam tired. I should...

    Not Worth The Cheap Rent!

    It was my final year of school and I was more than excited to finally be out of the dorms. I went with my best friend to sign a lease with one guy that was already living there and another that was just like us. We should have known something was up when we went into the house...

    Finally Kicking Him Out

    This Friday I get to finally kick out my roommate.  He was a horrible roommate that just didn't get it.   He initially moved in with good intentions (like they all do).  Bragged about his "clean freak" abilities and responsibility.  After the first...

    Lady From Hell

      For two years, me and my bestfriend shared an appartment with this flatmate from hell, a divorced lady in her late 40s, who worked as a financial manager (!) in Lisbon.  At first, I admired her self-confidence and maturity, and I was glad to have an adult flatmate. Well, it...

    My roommate admits he is blowing glass in his

    bedroom of our apartment. Seriously!? In an apartment? We have 7 other apartments in our building. Should I tell the management? I'd love to hear some opinions. My momma says "Tell them!" What if he burns the place down, then we're both liable.

    He is not a problem to live with. He keeps to himself, he pays his rent on time, and doesnt make a mess, but he knows how the world works, and what things should and shouldnt be done, and if you try to tall him otherwise, you are wrong. He refused to pay his share of the TV...

    My Freshman Year

    I was randomly paired with a girl at my university.  She was the complete opposite of me.  I'm a creative writing major, kinda sedentary, not a partier, not at all good-looking; she was majoring in medicine, a basketball player, a HARD partier, and fairly pretty. ...

    Awful Roommate

    When I was 18 and a freshman in college my first roommate was awful. We shared a mailbox and I was trying to be nice and picked up her mail along with mine to save her a trip to the mailbox. She then told everyone on our dorm floor that I was a thief and stole her mail. She...

    Freshman Year In College

    My freshman year in college, I had an alcoholic for a roommate.  I don't mean he drank alot, he was truly an alcoholic.  He would wake up in the morning, reach under his bed, and pull out a bottle of tequila.  Every day, he would get smashed - beer, tequila, vodka...

    To Hell And Back

    It's ironic, I think, that of all the people I was forced to room with as freshman, I was planted in the same room as a girl so dyammetrically opposite of me.  How do I begin?  She was a fundamentalist christian.  My own religious views are too complex to explain...
