    I have been dealing with this

    for awhile. It really just does not seem fair. I feel like no matter what I do it is wrong. So here is the story. About a year ago I moved into a place with random roommates. They did not take college seriously and would not talk about their plans with me so I would wake up on...

    I used to. For everyone still going through it,

    my advice would be to get out of the situation and fast. Otherwise you may end up being accused of trying to murder them. With the kettle. Sounds funny, but I bear the psychological scars to this day.

    My experience with horrible roommates is not

    just horrible, it compares more to living with the teenage spawn of Satan. I met my roommate in high school. She acted like a nice and decent human being until later I realized this was all just a front. When my fiancé and I moved into this three bedroom apartment with her, we...

    When we moved into the room we are in now,

    my boyfriend and I knew this was going to be a temporary situation. We had a rental unit that we were supposed to go half on with my mom, but she stop her half. I would have moved our stuff to a smaller unit, but our roommates said no, if we paid out part of the cable we can...

    She has no idea what I'm going through,

    and she has no right to judge. She probably thinks I'm an idiot. Her passive aggressive attitude is making this even worse for me. I wish she knew how bad my depression is.

    I am the only one that ever cleans the house,

    which is fine because I'm picky about it. But I got screamed at last night for not finishing her laundry and doing mine instead of hers. Then they tag team and sit in the living room saying horrible things about me and being so rude and I just sit in my room and cry. I'm never...

    Crazy Train

    My living situation was fine at first. I felt lucky, but now I barely leave my room when I'm home. In fact, I try not to have to be home. I hate it so much that I make up excuses to leave and usually end up driving around town for hours aimlessly or hanging out at my friends...

    No One Believes Me

    I just moved out of this house that an ex-friend owns. She is younger than me, but she is a real-estate agent so she bought her own house. When I first moved in, it was nice. Quiet. It was Heather (who owned the house), Alicia (Another renter), and Heather's boyfriend. Three...

    I just found out one of my roommates has been

    saying horrible things about me behind my back. We had a bit of a falling out when we first moved but she hasn't let it go and had been treating me poorly even though I have been nothing but nice to her. I don't know if I should confront her or not. It is really affecting my...
